    hey ladies!

    well I have reached an all time low for self esteem today. I am not sure what is going on but I feel like absolute crap....

    I am usually the queen of positivity and today am having a really tough time....

    :cry:

    My belly seems to be growing at a very slow pace, and some days I feel less preggers than others. I end up feeling just fat and not so pregnant.

    I went to the store yesterday to buy another pair of black mat pants because my other ones were getting small in the belly area...the waist band was digging into my belly...everywhere else fit. I ended up buying an XXL......from a LG...XXL!?!?!?!? :hissy:

    Then my best friend and I are starting an aquasize class on the 30th and looking at my legs, I feel like I am the last person on earth who should be wearing a bathing suit....:cry:

    sorry....I hate to have a pity party, but thought you would know how to deal....

    :hugs:

    Babes dont be silly babes, well all have our up and down days but i'm sure you look fantastic and you have a wonderful little person growing inside you!!

    As for the Auqa size. i do Aqua Yoga here in the UK, and honey dont even worry about what lumps and bumps and how you will look in a swimming cosy!! All the ladies are in the same boat they are all pregnant at my class and honey i worried to begin with and its the best thing ever, love the classes!!
    No one will look at you if your worried!!! and i'm sure you will look fantastic anyway


    Hope that helps

    i'm thinking lack of sleep,

    Oh babes - we all have days like this. I had one at the weekend - when I decided OH didn't fancy me anymore coz I'm so big and he'd be better of withsomeone thinner and younger:cry: Of course he wouldn't hear of it!

    Just remember that yes, you are going to get bigger, but it's for a wonderful reason!! You are growing the miracle of life in there and your body is going to adjust with it. Go with the flow and try to embrace your feelings instead of fighting them. It will all be worth it in the end x x :hug:

    :cry:

    You are all so sweet!

    Helen - Last night was a pretty terrible sleep. Chris got up at 230AM to get ready for work and after that babes was kicking my pelvis all night...I could not get back into a deep sleep.

    :blush: I am so grateful to be preggers, I am just having a down day. I was heavy before I got pregnant and as the scale goes up it gets harder and harder and I am afraid of how big I could get and that I will be the random few who cannot loose their baby weight afterwards...and then I will be a fatty forever!!! :blush:

    I love my babes though. :cloud9:

    Thanks again! :hugs:

    Awww, :hugs: I'm getting some serious expansion on me now and have found that not only my pelvis has got wider but suddenly my thighs too so I don't fit some of my maternity trousers that were quite baggy. I'm going to aquanatal and the biggest mistake is looking what my bump looks like in my maternity tankini because all I see is huge thighs! I'm determined not to fret though. It's all important baby fat and I'll be better after teh baby's out and I am physically capable of doing anything again! Chin up!

    sorry you feeling down, we all have days like that. Have you looked at getting a bump band it means you can wear nomal trousers/ skirts undone and the band covers the gap. I love mine as it means I am thoretically (sp) in my size 10 jeans still, makes me feel less whale like and opens up my whole wardrobe again. Good for tops that are getting a little short too. Although it doesnt seem it when your awake at silly hours with a wandering mind, time will fly and before we know it we will be all smiles and giggles with our special babies. x
