    Little things people say worry me.. More than my actual appearance.. Pre-pregnancy i was a very slim 6 1/2 stone, now i am what i see as a healthyly pregnant 9 1/2 stone.. My legs, arms and face havent got much bigger, maybe an inch or 2 each, not even noticeable but i have an extremely large bump, i have been mistaken 4 full term by many people.. But so many people say 'omg are u not worried ur never get ur figure back' and other sly comments but i cant see that ive lost it.. Am i just being naieve? Will i see it later on.? Should i watch what i eat or worry? 'I really cant see that ive lost my figure'..

    ignore them hun, you know your own body better than anyone else, some people just can't say anything nice! nobody knows what their body will like after they give birth as everyone is different, and as for being mistaken for full term people aren't very good with pregnancy dates and how big you should be lol I've never heard anyone say you look right on target, its always too small or too big so pay no mind and don't worry about your weight gain :flower:

    Everyone seems to have an opinion on weight/bump size etc during pregnancy - people dont think before they speak and say thoughtless, stupid things - I was buying some Pringles in a nearby shop and the woman behind the counter asked me if I think Ill get back into shape quickly and joked that she will be monitoring the calories of the food I buy after baby is here! I know she was joking but why say it?! Of course Im going to lose the weight and if I feel that she is being my 'diet monitor' after the birth then Ill just go to a different shop lol!!!! :)

    Ignore what anyone else says - you are a fantastic healthy weight! I was about 8 stone 10 before and Im waaaayyy over 11 now - probably nearer 12 and I couldnt care less! Its mainly bump and Ill diet and exercise when LO is safely here! :)

    I wouldn't worry too much hun, you will get your figure back but it may be a slightly different shape to pre pregnancy. I gained at least 5st with DS and got back to pre pregnancy weight in about 6-7months but I was a different shape

    I wouldn't worry hun. Eat sensibly and stay active after bubs is here and you will go back to your natural shape. Our bodies have to put down fat stores, extra fluid etc. for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    I was really thin before pregnancy which was just my natural shape - I used to buy sixe 6s but they hung off me. I can only get 1 pair of my 6s on now and only because they are baggy things! I was 6stone12 before and now 8stone10 with 11weeks to go!!! I don't even have a bump - it's all on my bum and thighs lol. I haven't changed my diet or exercise at all so I guess this is the weight and size I need to be for pregnancy. I will worry about it from a couple of months after the birth. It really depressed me this mornin though, I'm wearing the same clothes for the past 3days cos nothing else fits!
