reedane - October 28

h__lo all. I am 18 and a half weeks pregnant. I am really enjoying the pregnancy and am very excited. I even felt my first kicks yeterday and now they are constant. its all very good. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT i have put on almost 10kg so far. I am a small, tiny thing normally, so my weight gain is very obvious. I still look good, but everything is a little bigger. AND PEOPLE KEEP TELLING ME. Its like they dont care that it hurts me. They are obsessed with telling me how i look 6 months pregnant and that its going to be a big baby etc. I do think its because they are jealous of my happiness but i have had problems with buliemia in the past and now am trying to find out how too loose weight while pregnant. Does anyone else feel this way? is there a safe way to loose weight pregnant? please help, hormones are everywhere and this is really upsetting me.

I know just how you feel. I danced and toured until I was 3 months pregnant, so I had a super thin and toned body. As soon as I stopped dancing I gained a lot of weight steadily through the rest of the pregnancy. I gained 48 lbs in all. I thought of ways to loose weight, but realized that my baby was much more important than how I looked. So I just didn't take a lot of pics of myself and knew that I would try and lose it after the baby. I was able to lose the weight quicker than I thought, especially since I am still b___stfeeding. My son is now 11 months old. I returned to my beginning weight about 6 months after I had him, but the tone was gone replaced by wonderful skin rolls. But every time I look at my little guy I am reminded that it is all worth it. Hang in there, and don't try and loose weight or it will harm the baby.
