Advice on weight gain.

I feel bad bc I actually do worry about how much weight im gaining. I am 5'7 && was 120 when I got pregnant. I've gained 36 pounds so far && im 34 weeks pregnant. I feel horrible like I hate to be naked or look at myself in the mirror now don't get me wrong im still eating like I should im giving her her vitamins so im not putting her life at risk. My mom tells me her favorite quote often which is " She was worth the WEIGHT" I also feel bad bc Im never in "The Mood" anymore bc I don't feel sexy or anything and I feel like the way I look will gross him out. I feel like I might actually be going into a depression. If anyone has any advice please help me out. Feel free to email me also.

  • Your weight gain sounds like its in the normal range, so you did not blow up by any means. Don't stare at the mirror, and what I do to help get myself in the mood, I wear a really cute and sexy piece of lingerie something that covers you up in the right spots and lifts and accentuates the parts you like.

  • Sorry I cannot really help. I am in the same boat. I am 37 weeks and have gained 36 pounds. He tells me not to worry because it will all come off after shes out. But she isnt out yet.

    I hope things get better. Although I am told we are in the normal weight gain range. Some people gain 50+ pounds.
