Ok im in serious need of a rant.....im due 27th aug and i just feel like hiding for the rest of this pregnancy- it beautiful out and all the girls have there legs and bellys out and i feel like a elephant in a sack! I have no idea how much weight ive gained and i dont dare get on the scale but last years baggy size 16 shorts are tight so it cant be good....my legs are covered in cellilite and swelling up and dont get me started on my bottom! Im a pear shape so little on top and big on bottom
I was unhappy with my weight before i was pregnant- now i just feel an emotional wreak! I dont really have friends, just aquatences so noone i can really talk to, i know most of it will come off when ive had the baby- but what if it dosnt! I hate exsersice and love food. Please someone tell me its not just me feeling this way! I feel devistated and not the slightest bit sexy...

Try not to worry about it, I gained 3 stone while I was pregnant and within the first month I lost 2 stone - it's all water retention and baby. I too hate exercise and live food and now only have half stone left to lose to get back to my pre baby weight. Once bubs is hear all the weight will be worth it. X

I feel like a sack of potatoes in a dress so usually it's maternity leggings and a vest.
For decorating I've been wearing hubby's pyjama shorts!! Might need to invest in my own if this heat continues!!

aww hun try not to worry too much. i know how you feel. with my first pg i was due early aug and i was miserable the last 2 months. i hated the mat clothes, longed for my nice summer dresses, and everything was uncomfortable. like you i felt like a whale. and to make it worse, i was always sweating. i was sooo hot all the time. i really dont think any women feels good or sexy in those last weeks. and the weight really does come off quickly after the baby is born, especially if you breastfeed.
im now 22+4 with my second baby and i already dread the last weeks of pg. i was a grumpy cow last time and will prolly be the same again. have you tried a nice maxi dress? put your cleavage on show and the dress will skim over bum and thighs.
oh and one more thing a good friend told me when i was complaining about feeling huge. she said yes, thats how you feel but thats not how people see you. people will only see a healthy pregnant woman. x

I know how awful it feels gaining weight during pregnancy, I gained 3 stone but I've lost 2 already and LO is only 7 weeks old! I lost 10lbs the day I gave birth too the heat is probably making you swell up too! Personally I enjoyed very little about being pregnant and the bigger you get the worse it is bit's each day is one day closer to meeting your little one!

I hate people looking at me like im a bad mum before she is here xx
