I went through a huge phase of feeling down on myself then I realized that I have a miracle inside myself. I wouldn't trade it for the world and he is worth every stretch Mark and every ounce I gain. Just see it as being beautiful! We all really are beautiful(:

This pregnancy has made me skinnier. My face is so narrow now that I look really sick. I can't wait until I have that noticeable bump.

I am 26 weeks pregnant..i have gained about 17 pounds. My first son i gained 67 lbs but didnt feel huge until the last 2 weeks. I was smaller my first pregnancy. This time around, i started off a little thicker havent gained more than necessary but i feel ultra disgusting, huge and fat. :( my husbsnd is very loving and supportive but its the first time in my life ive felt this gross and down on myself. You just keep living everyday and try to remind ourselves that we are not managing an inconvenience but we are creating an amazing human being :)

Embrace the belly is what I was always told

I totally understand you. As one of the ladies said embrace the miracle. Stop looking at what others call beauty. These thin woman. There are more than one categories of beauty. U are pregnant and have elevated to another beauty category. All these models and super stars came here because someone unselfishly gave birth to them. You are beautiful because u breath. You are creating life. I know pajamas are comfy... But, the clothes that dnt fit are not sufficient for your new journey. You are evolving forget the size you are a queen;)
