Changing Body

Tiffany - posted on 08/22/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




I have been feeling wonderful throughout my first pregnancy. However, recently I have been having issues with my body. When i look at pictures of myself I feel disgusted. I am 9 months pregnant and don't know why this is happening now. My husband is VERY supportive and tells me all the time that i am beautiful (still comes on to me as well A LOT). But i have always been used to being small (size 2) and have gained around 35 pounds. I know that some may find this post silly. But i am having a really hard time with this change.

I hate to say this but you are putting too much of your self worth into the size you wear. Think of all of the great things you do (hobbies, volunteering, being a mommy etc) and start putting your self worth into who you are nor what you look like, I wish you the best.

When I was pregnant with my son I was an adverage size only gained 25 pounds because I didn't want to get fat and that is how I seen myself. But dont worry if you eat right and exercise as well as getting the needed rest after the birth of your child, by the way congrats, you will be just fine. Just remember that the reason this is happening is a wonderful thing. Glad to hear your husand is supportive my son's dad was not and didn't help by calling me fat even after my son was born but he was just a jerk.
