confidence???

I was just wondering if I was the only one who is so discouraged with my body im 25 weeks and this is my first pregnancy since I've become pregnant I've over come an eating disorder and now that the pounds keep adding up I find it harder for myself to look in the mirror,my fiance says im beautiful but I feel he is saying that to keep himself out of the dog house, is there any possible thing I could do to feel pretty again? I exercise and do yoga but it doesn't seem to have an affect on my confidence level. Just curious of your answers

I have similar feelings, compounded by the fact that I've been too sick to continue my yoga or any of my exercise routine. I just haven't been able to feel ok with my looks since I started showing. :/ I'd  like to know as well.

I'm sorry mama!! My first pregnancy I gained 46lbs and I was so depressed about it but I lost all of it plus 10lbs after delivery! Now 2 years later I'm 12weeks pregnant and feel like a dang whale again!! I'm hoping not to gain so much weight this pregnancy , its probably just our hormones and who likes gaining weight anyways? Lol!

Right there with you ladies. My husband doesn't seem to get what I'm seeing and is unhappy that I don't want to go anywhere and when we do I take forever trying to get ready in the attempt to not feel like a walking blob. I feel like I look huge and not in a pregnant kind of way most of the time and it feels like people stare- even if logically I know better. And oh wow stephannieluv! I hope we all have that kind of luck with our current pregnancies.
