Im ready for this to be over.. Im to the point to where im miserable all the time why do I feel like this? I feel disgusting

Ive always been fat. I lost 80lbs and was within 40lbs of my goal weight and got pregnant. Now I see the scale going up and I feel nasty. I look at myself and see gross! I dont want to be fat again. I was miserable then and I was finally happy losing the weight. Now that im gaining like a pound a day I feel miserable again. I hate it. I dont want to feel this way. At first I was great with the whole weight thing caus I wasnt gaining it fast at all. Now im back up to 233 and I cant stand it. Im afraid the weight wont come back off. This feeling just started a week or so ago... Ive heard that getting frustrated or antsy means the baby is going to come.. haha lets hope so. im 37 weeks.. How do I stop feeling this way?

  • Talk with your doctor. They should be monitoring your weight gain and measuring your tummy, and can tell you if you're right on track - or if there's a problem.

    If you're right on track, then you can give yourself permission to grow a strong baby just as you are, and worry about weight loss after delivery. If there is a problem, doc can help you address it in a way that's still safe for your baby.

    - for the record, most women feel like beached whales in the last trimester.

  • Nothing anyone says is going to make you feel better. I felt the same way and people would always tell me "don't worry you are pregnant, you're supposed to be fat." That never helped. I was depressed about my weight as well. Honestly, the only thing that helped me was to not look at the scale when I went to the dr. I liked not knowing how much I weighed, or how much I had gained. They will tell you if they are worried. I weighed 227 when I had my daughter. She is just over 2 months old and I'm down to 196. I had lost 27lbs within a week and half after having her. I didn't try, it just came off. Now I'm having a harder time with it, but they say it can take 6 months to a year to get back to your starting weight. Breastfeeding is suppose to help. Just hang in there. You are gaining weight for a good reason. Just try to think of your baby everytime you get down on yourself. She or he will love you no matter what size you are.
