feeling fat already!

I am only 6 weeks pregnant, and I have gained about 4lbs. Four lbs may not sound like a lot, but I feel so heavy. Especially in my abdomen. I know about the changes that take place in the intestines, etc when you are pregnant, but I can't stand this dumpy, heavy feeling. I can't seem to get comfortable. Of course it being the holidays too, I guess that could have been part of it. I'm just feeling so frumpy and not sexy at all. I feel so bad for my husband because I'm turning him down a lot lately when it comes to sex. I know he thinks I look fine, even if I do look plump, but I just feel so unsexy. I am venting, I know, but I'm irritated with feeling this way. Has anyone else gained weight so quickly after getting pregnant? I just would love to hear. Thanks

Molly H

Re: feeling fat already!

I feel you! I am 13 weeks and have a big pouch. I have been feeling fat since week 6! This is my first pregnancy, and I can't wear any of my pants anymore. I have gained about 6 pounds.

Re: feeling fat already!

with my 2nd pregnancy, which I am currently experiencing, I got bloated right away! My clothes got tight and I totally lost my waistline, well before I was in a position to buy maternity clothes. I felt like wearing a sign that stated "im not faaaat! Im pregnant!!!" Now that Im obviously pregnant, I just enjoy being a human weeble.

Re: feeling fat already!

When I was pregnant I felt awful and huge. I was miserable most of the time. I want to say now that I'm not pregnant, I wish I could go back. I never once was able to look in the mirror and say I look like a beautiful pregnant person. All I saw was HUGE! When I look at pictures and video tapes now I see that I did look pregnant, not fat and I did look great. I feel bad for myself because I can't go back and enjoy it know. Treasure this while you can because you can't get this special time with your child back again.

Good Luck, all of you! <IMG SRC="">
