I know how u feel. As beautiful as this process is ive never felt heavier, clumsier and so helpless. Im 35w1d and it was all great up until 2 3 weeks ago when the 'summer' and humidex hit. But nothing is forever this will all go away and we'll finally meet ourbaby boys. This is my 1st as well. When r u due?
Yes i had alot of problems gaining weight even though I have only gain 22lbs and i'm 38w+2d. I feel like i'm huge I didn't even have a baby shower because I didnt want people to see the weight I have put on I even refuse to take pics of my belly for memories. And I refuse to buy maternity clothes I find them so ugly. I'm just hoping once the baby comes out I go back my size
I'm 25w tmw & gained 26 pounds ! :( So I def understand , I'm the FIRST one to say " Pregnancy is a beautiful thing " but I was So depressed !!! I colored my hair & I feel like my old self again :)
I'm a FTM too .
I felt the same. My friend had miscarried and sold me "I would rather put on weight and had my baby..than to have lost my baby and stayed slim"
That really put things in perspective for me. You can always lose some weight after baby is born. Everyone gains weight its natural. Remind yourself you are growing another human being. It's amazing! Chin up. Not long left until yoi meet your baby x
Thanks girls :) its just so many emotions to battle..... when i start feeling so down about it getting harder for me to do everything and walking around feeling so front heavy i feel bad for feeling that way... its like a vicious cycle! But i just try to think about my little boy and it makes me feel blessed and happy knowing im going to be a mother. I just feel so unattractive sometimes and i feel like i dont look good for my hubby anymore. He tells me im beautiful but its just hard to believe. Im gonna be okay and i know im not alone in the world with these feelings its just emotional overload!
Im due August 16th but my doc said my date is a little off and im measuring about a week ahead of that. He chose to leave my due date the same since its within the 2 week period.
You'll be fine I have weight problems and have struggled to lose weight for years. I'm on my second pregnancy ..hardly any space between them. My daughters 11months and I didn't get to lose any weight and now I'm ten weeks and have Gained already .. I promise when you meet your baby you'll realise its so worth feeling rubbish for something that's such an amazing outcome :) you'll be fine x
