As I mentioned in an earlier thread I've just started TTC, I stopped taking BCP a week ago so its all really early days yet. But what are people here doing or what have people done with previous babies to prepare themselves for what is going to happen to their bodies?? Frankly I'm terrified. I have huge body image issues and have suffered bouts of clinical depression that have been fueled by by body problems...I'm scared that I wont be able to cope with the changes that pregnancy will bring. My OH is fantastic and I know he will love me whatever shape I am covered in stetchmarks or not, but I can barely stand to look at myself now let alone when I become pregnant with all the changes that brings. I am trying really really hard to look being pregnant as a beautiful thing but I can't, well I mean carrying and having a baby IS a beautiful thing but the way it makes your body look looks horrifying to me at times. Has anyone else out there felt the same? Is it something that is easier to come to terms with once you are actually pregnant?
