I don't know where to post this but I'm hoping I'm not the only one struggling! I'm only 4'11, so I've ranged my whole life between tiny and chubby, but over the last 5-10 years had really gotten into fitness and felt great about where I was.
During pregnancy #1 I felt like a goddess! I was the cutest pregnant lady ever and partly due to my insatiable ice/water cravings, the hottest summer ever, and delivering early I only gained about 20 lbs. Unfortunately I only lost about 10lbs and struggled with the rest and so started this pregnancy a bit higher.
And THEN this pregnancy has been so much rougher and I've gained almost 20lbs at 24 weeks! I have never felt so uncomfortable in my own body and am feeling really self-conscious. I don't know how to handle these feelings! I'm feeling like I don't even want to get dressed in the mornings because it's so depressing. My old preg clothes are too tight and I hate going up in the sizes even though I know it's stupid.
This is so not me and I don't know what to do! I'm also terrified of gaining so much more weight that I will never be able to lose it :s
Anyone have happy stories where they lost all the weight faster after baby2 even though they gained more?! lol.
