I am around 30 weeks. I have gained 50 pounds. (I know) I just can't seem to control this. I seem to be accepting my size more than before but I still have issues with body image. I had a great body before this. I don't want anyone to see me like this and rarely leave the house. I have declined all social invitations we have been invited too. Do any of you just feel so unattractive and huge?

i do not that I was all that smal but i find it harder to sit in front of my husband or undress. he told me my b___t spread wide. I know it did but foe him to notice I felt a little bad. He just tells me he knows I am pregnant.

I am 34 weeks and have also gained 50lbs. And yes I don't like going places either. My behind and hips were the first things to spread. I was a 6-8 before I got pregnant and now I can bearly fit into a size 20. It is very depressing and I feel ya and fully understand. Everyone I talk to only gained about 25-35lbs so that kinda made me more self concious. This is my third prenancy and I hardly gained that much with the previous two. I am planning on dieting vigously after this baby is born so that I can fit back into my pre-prego cloths. Good luck!

I totally feel the same way!! I am 26 weeks and have gained about 34 pounds. I feel so fat, my b___bs are so huge they make me look bigger than what I really am. I am really going to have to work hard to lose this weight!! I gained a total of 55lbs with my first and lost all but 5lbs of it!!!!

Missy, if you lost all of your pregnancy weight from your previous pregnancy you have given me hope and insperation.

I am 26 weeks 4 days and have also gained about 35 lbs. No matter how hard I try I can't stop gaining weight. I could starve myself and it wouldn't matter. I have just come to terms with the fact that there is a baby growing in my stomach and I can't worry about my weight now. Don't worry too much about it. It's for a good cause!

I sympathize with all of you! I am 38 weeks (tomorrow) and I have gain about 70 lbs! I was the same as you with about a 50 lb weight gain at about week 30 and I just kept gaining and gaining. I also was a size 6 (anout 134 lbs) before I got pregnant and now in addition to wanting to meet my baby I can't wait to be done just so I can work out and lose all this weight! I also have stoppped going out much...people just stare at me or say WOW when I walk by and I am thoroughly depressed. it's nice to read a thread about people gaining lots of weight. I was getting paranoid thinking I was the only one. Have any of you had ultrasounds to measure your baby yet? I have and the baby is already almost 9 lbs...

I gained close to 50 pounds with my second baby and I found that after I had him, I lost WAY more weight initially than with my first baby. I think I lost close to 35 pounds just in water, etc. without trying to lose it. And then after only about 7 weeks I had only 14 pounds more to lose. So take heart! The more you gain, the more you may lose immediately after having the baby! I don't know if this is universally true, but it is my experience.

I'm 30 weeks & have gained 20 pounds. I'm eating a lot too. It's just different for everyone. I started out as about 15 pounds "overweight" if that counts for anything. Don't worry, because my friend gained 100 (no joke) pounds, & she got back to her pre-pregnancy size eventually. It takes a little while, but it can happen.

I am almost 36 weeks along and gained 55lbs.. I gained the first 40 lbs in the the first 6 months. I was mortified.. I have slowed down just lately in the last month and half.. that pleases me.. dont be discouraged.. we can always lose it later on.. it the darn stretch marks I am more unhappy with... :-(
