Tree Trunk Legs


I have put LOADS of weight on my legs, so much so that I checked with the MW if it was normal and she said it was probs just fluid and that it was normal (unfortunately!)

So anyway, yesterday my sister asked if I had any stretchmarks anywhere, I said I didn't have any on my bump but loads on my inside thigh and all the way down to my knees. She was like "eurgh can I see?" ... so I rolled up my trouser leg and she practically screamed....

"OH MY GOD LOOK AT YOUR LEGS, THEY'RE LIKE TREE TRUNKS!!!!!"



I knew they were bad but not THAT bad....will they ever go back to normal?

My legs are HUGE!!! Flabby and horrible I'd love to say mines fluid related but it ain't I hope with a bit of running and dieting they'll shrink and i'll have a nice pair of skinny things within a couple of months....after LO is here obviously, i can't start before

Although, i'm not surprised you're upset

You should see my thighs....they have doubled in size its disgusting, and I look like I've been pelted with cottage cheese!!!

I think my mum thought it was a bit out of order, she was like "oh its high blood pressure that" lol making excuses for me!!! You should have seen my sister when she was pregnant...tiny little designer bump right to the end. Bitch!

im exactly the same. i came home last night and my mum had noticed how fat my feet where, it was only because i walked and walked all day, but now im 41weeks they seem to be blwn up alot and the walking didnt help. My trousers where really tight too and OH had to lterally pull them off. Sucks but heyho it'll go away once baby is born.

My mum say stuff like that to me all the time. I just say "and what do you expect on a pregnant woman"

I hope you told your sister where to go!!

It should go down after birth hun and if not I'm sure all the walks you'll be doing with LO will get them back to normal.

I've always had fat thighs (I've got fat everything!) so can kinda sympathise. Yours should hopefully just disappear!
