Anyone else feel like this?

This sounds kinda mean but I feel like a beached whale now that I am pregnant. I am 23 weeks and have only gained 12 lbs, but I feel like a cow!

  • Many women feel like that when they are pregnant. No, you probably dont look like a whale! The feeling is because your body isnt the way you are used to it being and that makes you uncomfortable and self consious. The up side is your partner has probably never found you more attractive as is the case with most men.

  • Nahh you probably don't look like a beached whale. *I* look like a beached whale! I'm 33.5 weeks and overweight to begin with : D I haven't gained much, probably 5-10 pounds total, but like I said, I'm overweight anyway.
