I'm just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat, I'm a very fluffy momma. I had actually just started losing weight recently. I even went and bought new pretty bras with matching undies.

I dread maternity clothes shopping cuz it's not like I can just go to target and get the cute stuff there.

Yes I am a plus sized mama. I am about a size 20. I have been going to weight watchers and am hoping to maintain or lose weight this pregnancy. Gained 40lbs with my daughter, all of which I lost within a month of delivery.

I make a joke and say if I want to lose a fast 25lbs I just have to get pregnant cuz once my M/S kicks in I drop fast and then I don't gain anything back.

My problem is AFTER I have the baby and im nursing, I crave like crazy and end up gaining all that I lost and more back.

I am feeling really crappy about myself right now thats for sure. I already feel like nothing fits right.

Me too!!! Ive had a rough few weeks and have probably gained a few lbs. I need to get serious!! I am still nursing and found it hard to get below my pre-pregnancy weight with nursing. Almost mpossible actually.

I figure if I could quit smoking for my daughter I can commit to healthy eating for this baby.

I could also stand to lose a good bit of weight! I had just started dieting when I found out I was preggers. I had only lost about 5 lbs. Im going to keep eating healthy, and try to not gain too much! Im worried about the ultrasound. Will they be able to see baby through all my belly flub?

I am a little thick too. I have been losing weight and am down to a size 14 now. Surprisingly I was looking at the walmart maternity stuff yesterday and they have lots of XL stuff. I may go there and get jeans and tee's and stuff for weekend wear. I didn't really see anything good for work though.

yes they can. Depending on how early it is though a vaginal U/S works better.

Same story here. Everyone thinks my weight is due to 4 kids but its all gained after they are born due to nursing appetite and then when I wean.
