    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I remember this with DD. All of a sudden, one day you feel totally huge. Like, not just oh-how-cute-my-belly-is-big but whoa I'm gigantic. I know I'm not, people tell me that and I get it. But today I went to get dressed for work. My boobs won't fit into my bra (normally I would be ecstatic about this... I'm only a b), my boobs and belly wouldn't fit into my medium sized motherhood maternity tank top, my ass pretty much had to be shoe-horned into my jeans. I seriously felt like the Stay-Puffed marshmallow guy. My hair looked like crap too on top of it all (don't get me started on having naturally curly hair.)

    I feel huge already, totally unattractive, very bovine-like, and now I don't fit into my clothes. (I know in my head that if this is the biggest issue I've got today I'm doing pretty well!)

    Just had to vent to those who would understand.

    lol! Too funny! I know what you mean though! Weird part is that I have actually lost a pound since I got pregnant....however my stomach is huge! I'm a thick-chick anyways so big butt and big thighs and big everything is normal for me. But my stomach looks like a swallowed a huge beach ball and I am only 19weeks. I figured since I was chunky already that it would be a while before I showed...WRONG!
