Ugh, looking in the mirror is so disgusting these days. Even my nose is chubby! I'm SO ready for December and baby to arrive, so I can work on getting small again. Being pregnant is very bad for my self-image: instead of feeling motherly and cute, I just feel like a slimy, fat slug.

 

Still, hooray! I've made it to 30 weeks, there is still a baby kicking around in there, and health-wise, everything is great. 8-12 weeks to go (and hoping for the 8!)

 

Anyway, 30 weeks:

You look REALLY cute, Azadehhast!! (I love your hair, btw!)

 

Personally, pregnancy has probably been better than I expected for my self-esteem...now I have an *excuse* to be on the chunky side. Plus, my round belly amuses me. :D

I HATE gaining weight while pregnant and I will support you every step of the way as you work to lose the baby weight. I have been shopping for clothes to wear post partum and my 8 year old, while watching me squeeze into stuff in the dressing room said, "that is going to be WAY too small". 

 

It WILL come off and you will feel beautiful again. I just know it!

And you do look lovely now. Hugs!

In the December DDC social group I think we should have a weight-loss thread for afterwards. I'm going to be there!! I needed to lose weight *before* getting pregnant. Being pregnant just helps me to not obsess over it.

I think I will look at doing the C25K program starting in March/April depending on how I'm feeling.  

 

I worry less about how I look than how I feel in my body.  I know I will need to build strength.  I haven't run in about 10 years, but I know that if I could get to a place where I was doing a 5k run 4-5 times a week that would be enough conditioning to make me feel a little better.  I'm simply not willing to commit more time than that while the kids are small. I am actually toying with investing in a treadmill or something similar this spring so I can't have any excuses. 

 

On another note, how long does social group approval take?

Social group approval takes only as long as BennyPai or I seeing it, making sure you're due in December (though we may also include mothers of older children later, to give advice and stuff), and adding you. :)

I lost a lot of weight before getting pregnant this time, and I have felt great about my body image the whole time! It usually takes me a good 4-6 months to feel like myself again after having a baby though. I'll join the weight loss thread!

I think that's a great idea.  I've only really felt restricted in the last 2 or 3 weeks in terms of what my body is allowing me to do even though I started cutting back a while ago.  I'm looking forward to running and feeling light on my feet.  To being able to do a full spinal twist.  To lay on my stomach!  To lay on my back!  So many things we'll be able to do!

 

Azadehast, I think we have really similar bumps.  I really hate putting my picture on the internet, but maybe I'll put one up for a few days to help you feel not-alone.  

 

I swing wildly back and forth between loving my body and hating it.  Mostly these days I love it.  I won't mind it going back to normal, but knowing it's temporary ... I feel beautiful.  I feel prettier naked than with maternity clothes on though.  They make me feel like a sack of potatoes.  :)

I'm definitely in on the weight loss thread, too!  I mostly feel alright about my belly.  I don't love the stretch marks, but I can deal. 

 

What has been bothering me this time around is that my belly seems to be sagging a bit at the bottom, hanging down over my (TMI --my apologies) underwear a little.  Obviously I'm lacking in abdominal support.  And the weight gain in my upper arms.  Aargh!  Thank goodness for the cooler weather on the way.  I've enjoyed every opportunity to wrap up in a long sweater!

 

BTW, Azadehhast, FWIW:  I think you look great!

I am in for C25K. I actually got a "floor model" treadmill a month ago for $200. The normal price is $375!

I used it TWICE, then suddenly started feeling REALLY pregnant and it has been sitting there ever since.

I will be using it a few months post baby, no doubt, especially once my hubby leaves for months of Army training next year.

 

My goal weight is 160. I am 190 today. Yikes!

Maybe we can start that weight loss thread soonish. ;) Post inspiring stories, work out ideas, "goals", reward ideas, etc.

Just lately I'm really beginning to feel pretty uncomfortable in my own body in terms of exercise/movement.  I am attributing it (in part) to having caught a bug from DD, but I'm also just beginning to get that beached whale feeling.  For the past two nights my hips have been KILLING me at night. 

 

Grrr. 

 

I know  DH will be around some so I could go exercise then, but his work takes him away a lot and it's all sorts of weird hours, so the treadmill (for me) would be a way to make sure I am able to exercise while the kids are occupied or sleeping. Darnit, I WILL make my own health a priority this time around.

29 weeks. I actually got dressed and did hair and makeup today. That happens about once a week. ;)

The extra chins, necks and arm fat need to go!! LOL.

The things we do for healthy babies, right!??

OK, enough complaining....

I feel... feminine and womanly and beautiful, but I do not. feel. sexy. Kinda puts a damper on married-couple time. >.<

 

27 weeks, I thought my belly was getting so big! =O

This one was taken last week (31 weeks) - we didn't get the pics off the camera until then, the difference made me laugh out loud!! xD

I did not manage to even comb my hair today.
