Pregnant - Nursing - Do you just feel ridiculously round?

I'm really struggling ladies.

Before my first doctor's appointment (and due to my nausea), I gained 20 pounds. Although I really haven't gained much weight since then, I still feel LARGE and increasingly larger! I struggle getting out of bed. My exercise routine has a big stomach in the way. Clothes don't fit. I've had to buy new bras because my already huge rack grew to a decidedly pornographic new size. I just don't feel like ME!

I'm only at 24 weeks. That's barely past halfway. I know it gets worse and I am not handling it well. The Cute Boyfriend loves to remind me that I'm growing a baby and that's not ME getting big, it's the baby's apartment. But honestly, I hate this.

Yes, yes and yes! I always feel like I have a beach ball on when I'm pregnant. It gets in the way of everything, and makes everything harder. I also definitely know what you mean about the porno boobs, it's amazing how huge they get.

I know it's no help, but take heart that it doesn't last forever. Pregnancy is a finite period of time and you will be done with it sooner than you can imagine. Try to enjoy the fun parts (baby kicks!) and suffer through the tough parts... it's all for a great reason. :)
