I'm upset.

I know I have a bit left in my pregnancy and I don't want my baby to come sooner than she's ready, I'm just starting to get very upset about my body. I haven't gained a lot of weight (19 lbs so far at 36 weeks) and it's not the weight gain really, I just miss looking and feeling good! I just look pregnant...I just moved recently and found all of my clothes that I can't fit into...skinny jeans, all of my dresses...it was really depressing. How can I make myself feel good about my body during the last month-ish of my pregnancy?

  • like i tell everyone else, its what you make of it babydoll. its a hard thing to go through. no matter how ur stomach is big, you wont be able to fit into those tiny jeans u had until you have her and lose some weight. u are beautiful girl! all pregnant women have that glow! and im sure u do! just be happy the baby is almost here, and her mommy is so pretty and ur husband will b so proud of u for havig her trust me. just stay strong, its hard the last month. just when those 6-8 weeks are up after having the baby get someone to watch thebaby for hour or so and hit that gym! you will look good as ever! STAY HAPPY and STRONG :)

  • You can't do much about your size right now...in fact, you're going to spend the next couple of weeks getting bigger.

    But you can rejoice in the aspects of your body that are nicer during pregnancy. I bet your hair is thicker, and your nails are stronger. Why don't you get them done?

  • *slaps you*

    19 pounds isn't crap, those clothes are going to fit you in a couple months. Subtract a 6-9 lb baby and all your fluids.

    I'm jealous, i'm 37 weeks and have gained over 30 lbs.
