I SWEAR I LOOK 5 MONTHS PREGNANT! I AM 8WEEKS 5 DAYS TODAY AND THIS IS AWFUL. IT IS MY SECOND PREGNANCY AND IF I KEEP GOING AT THIS RATE I WILL HAVE TO WEAR A MUMU. I AM NOT A BIG FAT PERSON, BUT AT THIS RATE I'M SURE I WILL GET THERE. I'M JUST A LITTLE DEPRESSED AND IT IS HARD TO EAT PREFECT WHEN YOU ARE SO TIRED AND HAVE NO ENERGY TO PREPARE A HEALTHY MEAL. ON TOP OF EVERYTHING IT IS CHRISTMAS TIME AND I AM CHASING MY DAUGHTER ALL DAY (SHE IS ALMOST TWO) CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A GOOD PREGANCY EXERCISE DVD? I JUST FEEL AWFUL ABOUT MYSELF RIGHT NOW.

I am right there with you. I called my mom almost in tears today because I am only 6 weeks 1 day and I'm already outgrowing my clothes. I know they say you grow faster with your second one but come on!! My dh just told me to start wearing my maternity clothes but I feel a little ridiculous doing that at only 6 weeks. I know I didn't start to outgrow things until I was like 12 weeks with my ds. I gained 25 pounds with ds and I think I am on my way to gaining 50 pounds with this one!

I know!!! I really can't stomach anything but pasta, pizza, and mac and cheese! I am too tired to fix anything else. i have been eating pretty unhealthy compared to what i usually eat. thanksfully i have gotten some energy back and have been going walking a little longer. but mostly i feel like a big fat blob...especially with these huge b___bs! i went from a 36 C to a 38 D overnight! I was a 10 and now I'm a 12. i'm 10 weeks tomorrow. i'm hoping to get back in gear over the christmas break...i get two weeks. i have no excuse not to!

I JUST WANT TO CRY. I AM SO TIRED AND SO FAT, THAT I JUST DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING. I HAD TO BUY MATERNITY CLOTHES AT 6 WEEKS, AND NOW I CAN'T EVEN FIT MY REGULAR SWEAT PANTS, YOU KNOW THE CUTE LITTLE LOW RISE ONES THEY SELL AT OLD NAVY. TO BE TRUTHFUL...MY ASS IS HUGE!!! I JUST WISH I HAD A PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND CLOSE BY THAT WAS FEELING THE SAME WAY. ANY CHANCE EITHER OF YOU LIVE IN THE SEATTLE AREA? PROBABLY NOT. ANYWAY DH DOESN'T NORMALLY GET HOME UNTIL AROUND 7:15PM SO I AM HOME ALONE ALL DAY WITH MY DAUGHTER AND I AM NOT MOTIVATED TO DO ANYTHING. I PLAY WITH MADALYN BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAS AROUND IT AND I DON'T WANT HER GLUED TO THE TV ALL DAY, BUT THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO RIGHT NOW IS ROLL THE BALL BACK AND FORTH FOR AN HOUR OR PUT THE PUZZLES TOGETHER OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I MUST SOUND AWFUL, I REALLY AM NOT. I JUST FEEL HORRIBLE AND I JUST WANT TO CRY.

honey, that's the hormones talking. do you have relatives close by or other moms you can go do things with? being cooped up in the house all day with the two year old is going to drive you crazy, combined with all the hormone craziness. what are you now, 8 weeks? That was me two weeks ago. it was a real low for me. i had NO ENERGY! i don't really know why you've gained so much already, maybe it's a lot of bloating. but i'm sure you know that in a few weeks you will feel much better. and you are not a horrible person! you're pergnant...no excuse needed!

Please don't think you are alone!! It is completely normal to feel that way, I have been eating ALOT more than I have ever ate in my entire life. The way I look at it though - if your body is asking for it, then give it what it wants. I have tortured my body for years- starving myself down to 89 lbs., and never being happy with what I looked like. Now I see an amazing person growing inside the body that I have hated for sooo long. That simple fact has made me respect myself, no matter how I feel. I will tell you that around 8-9 weeks was the worst for me, I am now almost 12 weeks and feel MUCH better. Keep your head up and it will all be fine, there are alot of us in the same boat!! Best of luck to you.

THATNKS LADIES, I AM JUST HAVING AHARD TIME RIGHT NOW. DH HAS THE 22-26TH OFF AND I AM HOPING TO SNAP OUT OF THIS FUNK WHILE HE IS HOME. I JUST FEEL CRAPPY, I WANT TO 'WANT TO', WRAP PRESENTS AND FINISH MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING , BUT I CAN'T EVEN SEEM TO GET MYSELF SHOWERED, LET ALONE OUT OF THE HOUSE. I HAVE A GOOD GIRL FRIEND THAT LIVES ACROSS THE STREET, BUT HER 4 YEAR OLD IS HORRIBLE AND I HATE GOING PLACES WITH HER IF HE HAS TO COME BECAUSE HIS BEHAVIOR IS SO BAD.

OMG! MJ I am right there with you. I am 8 weeks and 2 days with baby # 2 and my DD is 16 months!! I am not near you, but I am feeling EXACTLLY like you! My big b___t barely fits in any of my pants! I am most comfy in my prego jeans :( Wanted to hold out on wearing them, but NO! Not happening! My tummy is now about the size it was at 12 weeks with DD. I am so worried I am going to be huge! i havent gained any weight yet, but having a hard time eating anything healthy! I am addicted to bean burritos right now! Agghh! And as for being lazy and tired! I cant seem to get the energy to do ANYTHING! Hang in there it will get better! And remember you are so NOT alone!!!

IAM SO GLAD TO HEAR FROM ALL OF YOU. THIS MORNING BEFORE I GOT IN THE SHOWER I USED A MIRROR TO LOOK AT MYSELF FROM BEHIND, AND I WAS DISGUSTED! I CALLED MY HUBBY CRYING ASKING HIM, "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME I LOOKED LIKE THAT FROM BEHIND?" HE REALLY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. I TOLD HIM THAT IT WAS OKAY, HE COULD TELL ME THE TRUTH, BECAUSE I ALREADY KNEW. HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING EXCEPT THAT WE COULD BOTH DO BETTER. I DECEIDED THAT TODAY IS THE START OF A HEALTHIER ME, AND MY HUBBY IS RIGHT THERE WITH ME. MY DAUGHTER IS WONDERFULLY, LEAN MEATS, VEGGIES, FRUIT. VERY RARELY DOES SHE HAVE JUNK. IF I ATE LIKE I FEED HER I WOULD BE FINE, SO THAT IS WHAT HUBBY AND I ARE GOING TO DO. I HAVE ALSO DECIDED TO TAKE A WALK EVERYDAY AFTER BREAKFAST. I USED TO RUN, BUT I DON'T THINK I COULD, I'M TOO TIRED FOR THAT. I HAVE A JOGGER STROLLER SO I'LL JUST STRAP MADALYN IN AND GO. I AM VERY DETERMINED. I GAINED 40 POUNDS WITH MY DAUGHTER AND HAD LOST IT ALL. RIGHT NOW I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I WEIGH AND I DON'T WANT TO KNOW. IF I JUST STICK TO THIS AS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE THEN I CAN GET THROUGH THIS PREGNANCY WITHOUT TURNING IN TO AN ELEPHANT! THANK YOU EVERYONE.

girl, i am sooo with you! from jan 2006 to june 2006 i lost 20 pounds with weight watchers. met my current fiance in june 2006 and gained ten of it back over the next year. not too bad! we love to cook and we live in new orleans! but i am 5 feet 9 inches, and a little extra does not look very bad on me. i'm a dancer and carry it very well. BUT i DO NOT want to let myself go with this pregnancy. i am sure that i have gained about 6 pounds over the last month, and i am only 10 weeks. have gone from a 10 to a 12. tomorrow starts my 2 week vacation and i intend to take my dogs for a walk EVERY DAY in the morning and start eating better! i have really not felt like eating much besides pasta, bread, cheese, rice, and sushi. but i need to find ways to get more veggies. SOOOOO i'm with you! we can do this togehter. you are not alone! and you are beautiful! don;t let thro hormones tell you you're anything less. everytime i tell my fiance "oh, i am getting sooo fat" he says, "baby, you;re pregnant!" this very minute he's cooking us some whole wheat pasta with plain sauce and a veggie packed salad. he is soooo wonderful. hpefully your husband will stick with you on this and help your family be more healty. good luck to both of us!

THANKS NOLA. MY HUBBY IS RIGHT THERE WITH ME, AND IS NOTHING BUT SUPPORTIVE. I KNOW I CAN DO THIS, IT IS JUST SO HARD WHEN YOU ARE SO TIRED ALL THE TIME. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FIRST TRIMESTER TO BE OVER. I REMEMBER GETTING MY ENERGY BACK IN THE SECOND TRIMESTER WITH MY DAUGHTER AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. THANKS AGAIN.

I am 7 weeks and honestly love all my symptoms, but I was weighed yesterday, and I have already gained 6 pounds!!! Hardly any of my clothes fit. I can hardly stomach the smell of food, so I know that I have been eating bad, but I don't know what else to do. My fave food right now is grilled chz with a gla__s of milk. Sad, I know.

 

mjvdec01 - December 21

HOPEFUL3, I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I HAVE GAINED. ALL I REALLY WANT TO EAT IS BREAD, COOKIES, FRIED FOOD AND FRENCH ONION SOUP FROM CALIM JUMPER. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF US!

It is so nice to know I am not the only one! And I have decided today to be proud of my baby bump belly and wear the prego clothes! I have been trying to hide it and wear my regular jeans.....not comfy! So Today I am prego and proud! I was just upset that I was this big this early...but Oh Well! We are PREGNANT! and therefore allowed! My Hubby and I are starting all our changes after the holidays! Cant wait.....I already have been good about exercising, now just need to eat right!
