My friend and I had our babys 3 weeks apart, her first, then me, both boys, both our first kids. Weve had fun sharing stories and tips and what not, but the problem comes in dealing with weight loss. I have always been thin, and being pregnant I gained only 25 lbs. She has had problems feeling insecure about her weight before pregnancy and gained 40 lbs during. I went right back down to only 10 lbs more then prepregnant after my son was born, shes having a more difficult time with it. It makes me feel awkard when we are together and shes complaining about her weight and using me as an excuse to feel bad about her self, or when we see people we know, and they compliment me on my after preggo body but dont say anything to her, and she talks about it negativly for the next lil while. I dont know what to say when she puts herself down......anyone can tell me what may be apppropriate to say... i dont wanna hurt her feelings, but this makes me feel uncomforatble and makes get togethers awkward at times!
