Is anyone else gaining weight in just one area of their body, besides their belly? Maybe I'm just nuts but I can't help but notice that my upper thighs are expanding along with my belly. Now my pants are tight in that area and I can feel them touching when I walk. The last month I've been hitting the gym Monday - Friday and doing some extra time on either the treadmill or the stationary bike to try to trim the fat there but nothing is helping. Is it possible that during pregnancy your body just puts on weight in certain areas? I sure hope so because this is beginning to get really frustrating.....

Lol, my thighs did get bigger during my first pregnancy, but I didn't really realize how big until I was looking at some of the pants I wore right after delivering. I was like "WOW, my butt and hips were HUGE!". That was really the only place I gained though and thankfully it all dropped within 6 months. I'm sure I'm expanding again, but I'm just ignoring it. I'm giving myself a free fat pass until after this baby is born.

Argh I'm right there with you on the upper thighs. It is so gross! The same thing happened with my first pregnancy but I was able to lose all of it. I really hope this will be the same.

I don't know that my hips and butt could get any bigger and I haven't really noticed a ton more weight there since getting pregnant. I'm just a naturally curvy girl. But I do think that's normal and I've known people who put on a lot of weight in those areas and then usually lost it aftewards.

I'm noticing that 90% of my weight is gaining on my front... belly and boobs. My arms got all squishy in the beginning, but they haven't gotten worse. And my love handles are slowly gaining as well.

Lol glad I'm not the only one! My body has decided to morph into this lovely shape of big, thick thighs, no butt and bulky love handles. Plus my belly and 36FF boobs. I'm learning that I am just not one of those women who looks cute while she's pregnant.

I notice it in my face, boobs, arms, butt, and thighs. So all over, really. I'm not beating myself up about it. I figure I'll lose it after Sean is born.

I'm not gaining anywhere but my belly right now. But with DS I gained everywhere from the belly down. It turned out that 90% of that was fluid retention. So maybe your just swelling.
