So I'm 21w 3 days pregnant and I've just been having a HARD time with the weight gain. At first, my morning sickness was horrible and I actually lost about 10 lbs but I am now back up to 174 (I was 163 at the beginning) and I just feel so fucking disgusting. My appetite has just started ramping up lately and I feel like a whale. I know that some of the weight is fluid retention because as I pee throughout the night it goes down quite a bit. I'm glad I'm half way through but also sad that I have like 4 months left. All I can think about is when this is all over how much I can't wait to restrict and drop all this weight. :(

hey how are you feeling?

so i've been reading that most women don't gain a lot in their 3rd trimester and you're almost there, plus you've only gained 11 lbs that's not bad, well as of a month ago 

i have no idea how far along i am i have my first doctor's appointment on wednesday cuz you know COVID plus i wasn't even sure if i was going to keep it.  I know i'm late in my first trimester or early neighbor asked me when I was due yesterday so that will give you a clue as to how big i am already!!  it's not just my belly either it's my arms my legs my ass i'm disgusting but this is my third baby and i am pretty old so....i kind of expected as much plus i have been a super lazy blob for the past two months barely leaving my house cuz once again yay COVID - i've started exercising and not eating garbage anymore ... good luck ... stay strong ...keep me updated

and most importantly know you're not alone
