At a pound/week for the rest of the pregnancy I'll be over 200 when wee-bitty is born. If I manage to forget the number then I still think I look pretty good, but w/3 months to go and tanktop season here, I'm having to really work on my mental image now. I had a talk w/dh about how I'm feeling and asked for more compliments and out of the blue kisses/hugs (talk about having a conversation when you're already vulnerable and just hoping it goes well!) and that has really helped.
I was hoping w/eating healthier and getting more physical exercise I wouldn't gain as much as I did w/ds (about 40 pounds) but that looks not to be the case. I don't understand why my face, arms and thighs need to get bigger for the baby, but it'll come off after wee-bitty is here, that at least I can look forward to.
So, I sit here - feeling huge, feeling down because I think he doesn't find me attractive now, so there's no way he'll find me attractive once the baby is here (and there's no longer something filling out the pudgy belly!)
Oh well - I guess I need to keep the focus now on eating healthily and once the baby is here get the focus on healthy foods and exercise.

Heck, although he never says anything negatively now, DH does already discuss with me my postpartum training workout. It's taken a few punches in the arm for him to broach it in a sensitive manner, though. I love him dearly but In his defense, he does tell me regularly how beautiful I am carrying his child, so I can't complain too much.
Do him a favor. When you deliver the placenta, pick it up and smack him with it! :LOL

That said, I flipped out this past weekend when we stayed at my SIL's house. She has a HUGE mirror in her bathroom. I haven't seen myself naked in eons. But by day 3, I actually started to like seeing my pregnant self. I look a lot like a prehistoric fertility goddess these days - sagging breasts and all :LOL
