I feel beside myself and I don't know where to turn. I previously had an eating disorder and didn't have a period for probably about 6 years. I was put on clomid to get pregnant, had a 2 day period, and got pregnant soon after. I feel like I've put on SO much weight and I'm only 10 weeks pregnant. I'm eating much more regularly than I was in the past, because I care more about my baby than anything, but the weight gain is terrifying me. I had to buy maternity clothes already. Is this normal? I have such low self-esteem and feel just awful now. Especially since no one knows I'm pregnant. I always think people must just think I'm fat. I don't understand why I'm gaining so quickly. I pray I can lose it. Any thoughts would be warmly appreciated.View Thread
