So, I woke up this morning... tired as all get out. I have an appointment at 945 with the ob.
I run, do some yoga, take a shower and then proceed to get dressed.
Went to kohls last night with the husband, got rushed through choosing a few items from their extremely limited maternity section.
Anywho, put on pants... they make me feel disgusting and fat. Try on other pair, same thing. Resolve to return both pair because I am not comfortable in them and I won't wear them. Realize I have no other clothes (pre pregnancy clothes aren't an option anymore, really).
Weigh myself.
Break down.
Spend 45 minutes weeping on the bathroom floor.
Put on high waisted leggings to support belly, rig pre-preg jeans with huge rubber bands. Still feel absolutely disgusted with myself.
I've spent the whole morning shaming myself and my body and realizing that my stomach is only going to get bigger... big enough for small objects to orbit, probably.

I know I shouldn't feel this way, but I do. I was just starting to get comfortable with my body, and now I feel like I have no control. I'm seeing flab that isn't there, obsessing over the stomach flab I do have and making big deals out of small things that shouldn't matter and basically feeling pretty awful.

Am I alone in this? I feel like I'm going to be teary eyed all day.

I am pretty hard on myself too. I hate putting on weight after having worked so hard to lose it, but I keep reminding myself that if I've done it before, I can do it again.

I am definitely more comfortable with my pregnant body than not pregnant! My belly roll has turned into a baby bump- no need to suck it in or choose clothes to hid it.

Girl, you're housing another person in there! Flaunt it. Enjoy it. Worry about getting back into shape later.

Hope you feel better.

girl I can relate to this post every single day. I just wear sweat pants and t-shirts with tennis shoes every day because ya those are the options I have I am so dang huge right now... and knowing that I will be getting much bigger is so scary to think about for me. I just really want the baby to be here and I really just want to lose this disgusting weight and not feel so handicapped by this big belly with back aches, nausea, etc. I just wanna feel like myself again. Come on June!! Hang in there <3

I'm sorry you had such a rough morning! I def know how you feel. Watching myself get bigger and bigger just sucks, especially because I don't even have that cute, round pregnant look. I just look like I swallowed a watermelon sideways. Maybe you could go online and try to find some maternity clothes that make you feel pretty? I got some really comfortable and great fitting jeans at Old Navy online. They don't look maternity at all. And maybe get a great pair of shoes just because you deserve them! I hope tomorrow is a better day for you! Hugs!
