And it is depressing! :-(

I am only 20 weeks pregnant with baby #2, and I already feel like I am about to pop! I wasn't this big with #1 until 36 weeks. I haven't gained any weight yet, I just keep losing it in other places then my belly just keeps growing and it makes me feel bad. People are asking me all the time when I am due and when I say October they give me weird looks, or ask if I am having twins or say things like, "Oh, wow!"

I am already uncomfortable at bed time, I can't sleep on my back or stomach, and now I'm achey when I sleep on my side.

Maybe I am just being hormonal, but I'm feeling really down about it. :-(

What can I do to make myself feel better?

  • Don't feel bad. When I was about 7 months pregnant with my first baby, we went out to eat for my birthday, and the waitress asked me if I was sure I would be able to fit in the booth!

  • I felt the same way!! Both of my pregnancies I gained about 52 lbs. I too got strange looks from people asking when my due date was, and it was far off. It was very irritating! People can be sooooo rude!! But, I was healthy and so were my babies, that was all that mattered to me! I just got to the point where I did not care, I was pregnant and it wasn't going to last forever. I knew I could lose the weight afterwards. I dressed nice and always did my hair and makeup and whatever else to make me feel as good as possible. Just take care of yourself. The baby will be here before you know it and you will get back to "normal"! Good luck!!

  • I am pregnant with my third and I am GIANT too! I am due NOW and I just want to crawl in a hole and sleep until I give birth to avoid the discomfort and the chant of "you STILL haven't had that baby yet?!". No @$$holes! I haven't. When I am holding a baby in my arms, you'll know. OK?! Lol.
