That's not so long, is it?

25 weeks.
175 days.
4,200 hours.

BIG sigh.

I am just not feeling it today. *cue emotional pregnant rant*

I HATE feeling so flabby and jiggly and gross... My pants keep falling off my butt. I am constantly pulling my shirt down over my bump. I weighed myself and... UGH. 8lbs. I'm way over what I should be, honestly. I JUST finished the first trimester, for pete's sake!

Last night I was laying in bed planning all the workouts and dieting I'm going to do as soon as I get the okay after this c-section. It made me feel a little better. I just want my old body and my normal emotional keel back! I feel like I'm living in someone else's body! And it stinks.

Only 4,200 hours to go...

According to my DH, even 8 weeks is an eternity, but I think it's an instant! I feel like it was an instant ago that I was 15 weeks, so that should give you hope that this can go by REALLY fast!!

I'm sorry you are feeling down about the weight gain I'm surprised actually because being lighter than you were when you were preggo with Jack I would have thought I'd see tons of sexy belly pics and you would be rockin it!! That is what I think you should do anyway You will feel better once the belly really pops and you are definitely pregnant looking, 15 weeks is that inbetween stage that sucks no matter what. Maternity pants look horrid, but regular jeans look too tight, and it all around is an awkward phase...but it will pass in less than a month I promise! ((hugs))

Thanks ladies, you are right. Not much I can do but tough it out!

(And Em you are right - I'm still +/-40lbs lighter than I was when I got pg with Jack, so there's something!) Maybe I should just be rockin' it. At least I'm not afraid to wear tight t-shirts this time.

I've been cranky the last few days, but when you put it as only "4,200 hours" I feel so much better. lol I think feeling the baby with certainty is going to make me feel a bit better about the body changing...just seems more real and acceptable then. Remember that everyone's body is different and you gained those pounds because you need them for your baby! We know you aren't on the Jenny McCarthy pan of brownies every day plan...so be kind to yourself!
