I can relate. I’ve always had body image issues to the point where I was looking great and I just didn’t see it at the time. Pregnancy is hard, because in such a rapid pace you gain weight, and there’s pretty much nothing you can do about it. Eating healthy and exercising, but sometimes that didn’t even work. I started embracing it, I’m 35 weeks pregnant now, and I remember when I was in the second trimester I was so worried I would gain 70 lbs like some women do. So far its been about 32 lbs, so I can’t complain, my body did good! Just have faith in your body and stay positive.

It’s really hard! We obsess all our lives about being thin (I do, anyway), and suddenly we lose control of our bodies. I feel fat and terrible and like I will never lose the weighfeel haven’t gained a “cute” basketball tummy–I’m just bigger everywhere. Bigger thighs, butt, hips, calves, boobs, face, AND belly. It’s hard not to see myself as fat. 

Anyway, no words of wisdom, just wanted to say I feel you! 🙂
