I understand how you are feeling. The same thing happend to me durring my first pregnancy, And i am not going to let it get me this time. It took 7 years to get it off. Eating good foods is hard, I recomend that you purchace or borrow books about healthy eating, I am reading ( what to eat when you are expecting ) and it is great. Although I am only in my first trimester I am confident that I can follow the eating plan. Doctor phill has great advice as well. I live in Australia and purchaced his book with out knowing about him, and the diet help me lose lots of weight. The more you put on now the harder it will be to takeeit off after, you can do it.When you go to eat think would I feed this to my 6 month old baby, if the answer is no, don,t eat it.Your baby relies on you for all of its vitamins , so if your are eatting foods that have little goodness then you are not providing the best for your baby It is hard to go change your diet. The idea is not to go hungry, full up on good foods and you will not need to eat rubbish. Hope this helps a bit. There ids no point being upset about it, just take control and you will feel and look great

Hi Linsey, I agree with Naomi, Read and learn about what you should be eating and give it ago. I know you only have a few weeks but starting now will help you lose it after. Good luck and congratulations
