I'm having a very hard time adjusting to being pregnant this time around (2nd baby) with my first, I grew at a normal pace, not to large & gained about 23 pounds. This time around I started off at 145, I'm 5'9 so I was fairly slim, but my body is being super weird this time around, i seem to be gaining more weight everywhere else BUT my stomach. Im 31 weeks today & have gained 30 pounds, but my stomach is still flabby, it almost looks like i have 2 stomachs.. and I still have a roll when i sit down. has anyone else been pregnant like this? if so how hard was it for you to lose the weight afterwards? is this normal? and if anyone has pictures that would be great! TIA

This is my frist pregnancy and my doctor told me I was to gain 35+lbs, not including the pregnancy weight that just comes with being pregnant. I started at about 145lbs and I think I've broken 200lbs with all the baby (25weeks) and water weight.
It's mostly baby at this point, and I know I've got some extra weight in there, but before it was just flab it felt like and eventually the baby will fill its way in and you'll feel less bad. But alas, you'll still feel fat. I have to remind myself on a daily basis, that it's all baby, and it's not ugly. Plus it helps that her daddy tells me I'm beautiful daily. :3
