  • Nope. :) In previous pregnancies, maybe a little. This go around, though, I know it's all for the good of baby. Are you very early in your pregnancy, where you don't look like you've got a baby bump, just a bump? THAT was a wee depressing. Now that I'm OBVIOUSLY huge with BABY, it's not so bad. :)

  • Right now a little. It just looks like I'm fat and not pregnant, people just look at me and are like "Have you lost weight?" Which is like "Hey you look fat and I noticed but that's rude to say". So yeah, I feel ya.. but it'll get better and it's only for 9 months!

  • yes, i am very depressed about it, but i try not to be, and think about how if i work hard it will be easy to get it off. I also have been small my entire life and have experienced many different things from gaining the weight. But try not to be depressed it will go away. Breast feeding helps too i have herd.

  • Well...no.
    Because I'd rather a healthy (gaining weight) baby than an unhealthy baby because I chose not to eat.

  • Lol, THis is my second baby and oh dear god I cannot stop eating. I am totally feeling you on the depressed about weight thing. With my first I was a little underweirght when I got pregnant so I ended up gaining 37 total...but I lost all of it but 1 pound pretty quickly. I don't know about this go around though. I have gained 5 lbs just since I found out 3 weeks ago! Message me and we can be miserable together. lol

  • i havent quite lost all of my baby weight yet, about 10-15 pounds to go and my son is 7 months. im having a really hard time with it tho, like, im convinced that if i dont get down to the size i was before i had my son that my husband is going to leave me for a skinnier, younger, prettier girl. and it freaks me out sooooo much, i hate it!
