Yepp! This is something I'm struggling with too, and I'm also gaining weight all over, instead of just in my stomach. I read your body stores extra fat in your fatty regions (butt, legs, etc) so it has extra energy to put into producing breast milk. It's not something I enjoy because I already have a fatty booty, legs, arms and when I'm pregnant they get even bigger. I'm always self-conscious about my weight or looks, but being pregnant does make it worse. Having a male chauvinistic pig of a doctor doesn't help my image issues either, but I guess it DOES help me focus more on eating healthy-er because I fear what rude comments he might say next. I'm up 17 lbs total now but I swear my body aches like it's at least 30 lbs gained. It's a little scary to think about how much pain I might be in by the end of this. But like you ladies said, it's all for the greater good!! We can work hard and sweat our booties back to normal once these little miracles get here
