I am. It sucks. I think I'm carrying this little sprout super low. Every little sneeze or exurtion. Not to mention my hair is still falling out constantly and is getting a little thin. Last pregnancy I still felt like I looked nice and loved my pregnant self. This time, while I love my belly (even with all of its imperfections) and love being pregnant, I just feel kind of slobby and unattractive. Not sure if I should try to get a haircut or something to help. I'm trying to grow my hair out after a really bad really short haircut.

Thank you, I am not alone!!!<br>
First of all, for some reason my sneezes have been WAY more powerful now that I'm pregos. And, yes, if I don't brace and do a kegel, wet panties. It is such an attractive feeling. (And slightly scary - incontinence at 27?!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have twice, it sucked. I'm sorry you're having so many pregnancy symptoms that are making you feel ucky. When I was pregnant with DS I got a face rash on my whole chin and it was horrible. Bright shiny red. Then I had let my drivers license expire on accident and had to get a new picture taken with my giant rash. It made me feel unattractive too.

I peed on myself once the other day. I sneezed and coughed or something at the same time and it was not pleasant.<br><br>
I feel slobby too. I cant find maternity clothes that fit, even though Im huge, most of them just make me look fat or like I'm wearing a tent... and my pre pregnancy clothes are skintight and show off my lovely lady rolls that are adorning my body. I also had a bad haircut (Did it myself, my hair was always greasy when it was longer and I couldnt take it anymore) and now I wish I had some extra money to splurge on a nice cut because it always makes me feel so much better.<br><br>
Yuck.

Yup, I've done it too. I have been sick for the past week and when you are coughing so hard you feel like you are going to bring up a lung it usually makes you pee in your pants too *sigh*

I have peed on myself through each pregnancy. I remember this one time, I was still in grad school, sick as a dog, throwing up so much because of m/s I literally looked green. I was supposed to be taking an exam but kept retching in class so the prof let me go home. I barely made it out the classroom door and grabbed the wastebasket on the way out. I started heaving and heaving mostly dry because there was nothing left to come out. And with one particularly wretched heave I peed all over myself. Completely noticeable. More than halfway down my legs. There was nothing I could have done to prevent it.<br><br>
And I was only 22 at the time.<br><br>
And now (after having given birth) I also have this problem when I'm not pregnant (though to a much lesser degree).<br><br>
Now, I have to do this weird I don't know how to describe it thing. If I'm about to sneeze or cough I have to raise one knee up and grab my crotch. No amount of kegels has helped. It doesn't matter if I just emptied my bladder. My mw checked my pc muscles and was surprised I had such problems because my tone was excellent.<br><br>
Ah, motherhood is so romantic!

The joys of pregnancy that you don't know about until you're here.<br>
I've got that slobby feeling. I'me totally living the old wive's tale about having a girl steals your beauty. Acne, greasy hair, etc.

I swear, my bladder just recovered and now here we go again! Having that cold in the first trimester just was too much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/crap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crap">
