As of today I am 25 weeks and I just now started gaining weight and I am not doing well with it I enjoyed being small. However, I am happy to be putting on a little weight so the baby is stronger and heather when she is born. I am just finding it very hard to get conformable when sitting or laying down. I am on bed rest so therefore I do not get to do to much stuff. Ladies and moms help me give me a push please I really need it.

Its nothing to worry about I don't like gaining weight either but I'm only 17 weeks and I've already gained 10 pounds. But I just hope I have a healthy baby. Just start working out like fast walking it will help keep you in shape. Try sleeping with a pillow in between your thighs I always find it helpful. I wish you the best:)

I've recently taken up blogging and have joined communities for moms to keep my occupied. I also work from home as a print designer so keeps me occupied as well. Essentially, I just try my best to keep busy! It works to pass the time and keep me from going crazy!

I'm 32 weeks and I've been on bed rest since 16 weeks so I know how you feel! I'm not comfortable laying down, really. I sit up most of the time with pillows behind me. Sitting in bed with my legs crossed is comfortable for me, too...but I still keep pillows behind me.

It sounds crazy, but the bigger I get the more comfortable I've gotten with getting so big. I was 110 pounds (I'm 5'2) before I got pregnant and I've only gained about 18 pounds so far...but it feels like so much more! For me, it got easier. Hopefully it will for you, too!
