I was already overweight before I got pregnant. I weighed in about 250-260 pounds... Anyone else out there dealing with the same issues??? I've gained 10 pounds so far...All my weight has shifted. I cannot wait until the baby is born so I can go on a major diet and get all this off.

I was 175? pre-preg weight and i'm 5'3. So I am now in the 17 week and not really showing! When i'm out only if i say "i'm prego" they say"you don't look it"! I never lost the weight from my daughter 5 years ago! Which i gained 50 pounds with her! So i have been up and down in weight during this pregnancy and now am 176.My belly is shaping more though! Yes as soon as the baby is born i to am going on a major diet. Good luck!

Veronica, I am in the same boat. I weighed 280-290 pre pregnancy and I feel so horrible. I swell, I always feel so tired, sick to my stomach... my back aches, hip hurts, and walking is so much harder. I've reached 300 pounds... thats so depressing. I never thought I would see those numbers. Once the baby is born.... I'll be on a MAJOR diet. Gotta take things one day at a time... and pray for the best.

CHRISTINA SOUNDS LIKE WE ARE HAVING ALL THE SAME SYMPTOMS . HOW FAR ALONG ARE YOU

 

Tess To Veronica - November 1

Yes, this is our first child and my first pregnancy too. I am very excited :P I can't wait to find out whether we're having a boy or a girl but really it doesnt matter as long as the baby is healthy and normal. THanks!

CONGRATULATIONS TESS. BEING A FIRST TIME MOM IS VERY EXCITING. IT CAN ALSO BE A LITTLE NERVE WRECKING WAITING BUT EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY REMEMBER GOD BLESSED YOU WITH THIS CHILD AND HE KNOWS WHAT IT TAKES TO TAKE CARE OF HIM OR HER . IF YOU PRAY AND TRUST GOD WITH THE SITUATION I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY. YOU'LL BE HOLDING THAT BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY BABY BEFORE YOU KNOW IT. BE BLESSED

I am so gald I'm not alone. I am 5 feet 8 inches and started the pregancy at 250. I have gained 20 pounds and I am in my 26th week. Once this baby comes I am headed to Weight Watchers, I have to lose some of this weight before I do this again. I have to think it is so much easier to carry when you have less weight on you. Well good luck to all of you, Glad I am not in this alone!!

Veronica, I am 21 weeks. Today I slept almost all day, I dont think that was a good idea because tonight I wont be able to sleep. I should take walks nd such to exercise, but my back ends up hurting terribly. How am I suppose to exercise when it causes pain?

 

VERONICA TO CHRISTINA - November 2

LUCK YOU TO BE ABLE TO SLEEP ALL DAY .IT WOULD BE WONDEFUL IF I COULD JUST GET A FULL 8 HOURS WITH A 4YR OLD AND A 12 MONTH OLD AT HOME THAT NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO DO RIGHT NOW . BUT CONCERNING THE EXERCISE I DO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH I TO NEED THE EXERCISE BUT AFTER SETTING BEHIND A DESK IN FRONT OF A COMPUTER ALL DAY MY LEGS, BACK ,NECK ARE SO STIFF ALL I WANT TO DO WHEN I GET HOME IS TAKE A HOT BATH AND TRY TO REST UP FOR THE NEXT DAY. BUT MY DOCTOR SAYS THAT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME TO GET AS MUCH EXERCISE AS POSSIBLE . SO I TO MUST TRY TO SQUEEZE IT INTO MY DAILY ROUTINE IT SEEMS HARD BUT I THINK WE CAN DO. WE JUST HAVE TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME . BE BLESSED
