Last year I finally reached my ideal body. I went from a size 12 to an 8 and finally a 4. I ran everyday, ate healthy and swam to stay in shape. November I found out I was pregnant with my second child. Now three months into my pregnancy I've only gained six pounds but around my fiance I feel so discusting I hate him seeing me naked. Going from flaunting my body in front of him to hiding in the dark. I keep excersising just not as much but I still feel aweful. It's stupid to stress over, but I do. How can I feel better about this entire thing?

If he loves you, he won't care! I laugh when my hubby says I look hot at over 40 weeks pregnant, and when he tells me my nursing bras are sexy, but I know he does it because he embraces all the changes that I'm going through for our family. You're making a person, you need to grow, so embrace it, and love your belly for what's in it!

For anyone who has been overweight and then come to their ideal, it's really hard. I did the same thing. I'm 5'8" so I can carry a little extra weight, but I don't like to. I had been 182 and then went to my ideal. Then I got pregnant. By the time I had my baby (very late) I was 206! (I did have conditions that pushed that number up) Needless to say, throughout the entire thing, and then after as well, it was very hard. My son is 9 months, and I am just now back to my pre-prego body.The struggle is a self-view. I also struggled with being healthy because of the numbers (oh, how I hate the numbers!). The key is healthy. Keep excercising, eat right, and know that you're setting yourself up for a better recovery and shorter time to your pre-pregnant self. Remember that nothing is more important than a healthy baby.If you're able to see yourself differently, the problems with your fiance will go away. He probably doesn't even notice the weight. Buy yourself something new that makes you feel great just the way you are right now. There's nothing like a new outfit to make you feel confident and sexy. :-)

Feel blessed you are having a baby.  Some people are starving for one and will never be able to have one.  You will always be able to get your body back if you want it back.  Enjoy the moment being pregnant is beautiful.  I'm 50 and I miss those days.  I would love to go back and be pregnant again and feel life moving around in me.  It was the most exciting moment in my life.  I would not trade it for anything.  Your so lucky to be having a baby.  Get over your stupid hang up and enjoy this new life inside you. GOD HAS BLESSED YOU WITH ANOTHER CHILD  BE HAPPY BECAUSE THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU'LL BE LOOKING AT 50.

Same thing happened to me. I told him about it, and he said 'I actually find pregnant women very attractive'. and it helped a LOT. :)  I have also had a few guy friends tell me that they also find pregnant women attractive.

My husband is deployed right now and will be coming home in a few weeks for his leave with a few days to spare before we become parents. I am so scared of about the same thing because I gained a good bit of weight throughout this pregnancy. But I am pretty close with my brother and he told me (not creepy or anything) that he finds pregnant women to be the most attractive women he has seen. Something about their glow....He said he was most attracted to his wife when she was pregnant. I wouldn't worry to much about being unattractive because most men do find pregnant women to be very appealing. Relax and have fun!!!!!

For many, college is among the most pivotal times in life, and sets the stage for all of the professional achievements and intellectual interests to come. Therefore, the process of making decisions about which institution to attend, what course of study to follow and how to pay for it all can be crucial indeed. Continue reading to get some terrific advice for navigating this challenging stage of life. One tip that can help you study in college is to make yourself flash cards when you have an exam coming up. Flash cards are easy to make. Your can buy inexpensive index cards and write questions on one side and answers on the other. You and a classmate can then use them to study together. Set a budget before you enter your first semester for how much money you will be spending going out with friends, on food and on miscellaneous items. This will give you a better idea of the restrictions that you have so that you do not blow all of your money in the first few months. Organization of your time, your schedule and your responsibilities is essential to making your time in college count. You should know exactly where you have to be, when you are supposed to be there and how you will get there. If you are not organized, you will soon be confused and late with assignments. If you are having difficulty in college, begin a study group. A study group will offer many choices, including one on one time and group time. If you do not want to begin your own study group, there are many study groups available on most colleges. To find one, ask your classmates and professors. Learn ways to cut down on stress. College can be a tough time and difficult place to adjust. However, you can handle it if you learn how to successfully handle your stress. Whether it is breathing exercises or yoga, taking time to learn how to handle stress in a healthy way will help you. If you need money for college, you should consider applying for federal financial aid and scholarships. Visit the FAFSA website and follow the application process to get access to federal funding or grants. If you are denied federal funding, apply for different scholarships related to the subject you want to study. When you are writing a paper for your class, make sure that you do not believe everything that you come across on the web. Sometimes, the information that you read is opinion based and not factual, as you can get docked a lot of points for not having information that is accurate. Before you choose what you'll major in when you go to college, take a look at what jobs are available in your area. You don't want to get out of school and only be able to get jobs that are below your skill level. Consider saving to relocate if you have to after getting out of school. Scour the campus newspaper to find free activities and events that you can go to. Generally, college towns are filled with concerts, festivals, theater performances and more. If you invest a little extra time and go through the newspaper, you can fill your weekends and free time with great experiences that won't cost you very much, if anything at all. Make sure to make time for both socializing and academics. Some students spend all their times in their dorm rooms studying, which can be depressing and lonely, while others are so social that their coursework suffers. You should get out of your room and do something fun at least once a week and devote at least an hour a night to studying for each of your classes to help you stay balanced. Unfortunately, the world of college is not a simple one. In fact, college can be one of the most stressful times of people's lives because they are having to adjust to a brand new world while finding out who they really are. The tips you have just read can help with this, but understand that you should do your own self-reflection in order to achieve the most success.
