  • Just try to accept your body for what it is now. After you have the baby it's not going to go back to normal without a lot of exercising. Even then, it will still be different.

  • Honestly, you have to accept your pregnant body as a beautiful house for your baby. I am sure you are glowing and many woman, who cannot have babies, would kill to have that baby bump. Try to accept that you are pregnant, you are showing, and soon you will have a beautiful baby to hold and the motivation to "push" will be that you want your body back in pre-baby shape after you give birth. Good luck and try to cheer up. So many celebrities are pregnant these days and they of course don't look like themselves normally but they look beautiful bc pregnancy is a beautiful thing! Cheer up :) best wishes.

  • You will only be pregnant for a short time ....after the baby comes your weight will return with diet and exercise and you will return to feeling like YOU again.

    The time may go faster for you if you start a project or keep busy with activities. Maybe start a journal of your feelings and dreams.

    You may wish to use this time to consider your options for the baby. You have some decisions to make.


    Adoption is one of your choices. If you do not feel able or willing to take care of an infant, many good families would love to raise the baby. Explore open adoption, where you can select the adoptive parents and get updates on your babies progress. It is a loving choice.

    Good luck to you and to your baby. Take it one day at a time!

    hugs!

  • Well, are you trying to pick up guys while pregnant? it's really not the right time. You will get your body back but in the meantime, keep working out, taking care of yourself, eating properly and when you have the baby you'll bounce back. It'll be okay.
