Congrats on your healthy pregnancy and little girl to be! I've had nothing but trouble finding maternity clothes too. Apparently if you're a fluffy mama, you're either a. not supposed to get pregnant, b. supposed to be ok with just getting bigger clothes, or c. not supposed to care how crappy and tacky most of the plus size maternity styles are, IF you are so fortunate as to find them big enough. Very frustrating! You would think with as much as everyone has complained about America's expanding waistlines, SOMEONE out there would get a clue that there just MIGHT be a market for nice looking fluffy mama maternity!
So my husband took a picture of me on his camera phone and I looked at it and cried. I look like Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars.
Anyone else feeling a little low due to weight gain, etc?
|The thing that upsets me most about having a plus size pregnancy is that even at 38 weeks pg I don't look pg to most people. when I was in the hospital room waiting to be induced with #1, the nurse came in and actually said "where's the mama?" grantid I was clothed and sitting in a chair and not on the bed, it was humiliating.|

It's great to come and see an area where I finally feel I belong. Not that the other threads weren't helpful but it is nice to have a place where there are other people like you.
I was 19 when i got pregnant with my first and I was 243 lbs. I had severe morning sickness (or what i thought was severe until this one came along) and therefore ended up giving birth via c-section (pelvis was too narrow - found that out after 64 hours of labor) By that point I was 220lbs but had gained it all back after breastfeeding ceased and then some.
So now with this baby I started out at 266 and within three weeks I lost 6 pounds....can't keep anything down even though I'm on Diclectin. I don't know where I'm at these last two weeks because I don't have a scale here at home.
With the first one the doc was like you don't have to gain much - aim for 15-25 pounds at the most. But he never mentioned it this time. I just hope that everything turns out to be healthy and okay.
Thanks for listening and good luck to all of you. Here's to wishing you all happy, healthy and pain-free (ha in our dreams) births.
