  • Hi Sue

    You still look great and you are past halfway so YAY! I wouldn’t panic about the weight gain, you may not gain much more. I have seen HEAPS of friends and family who gained most of their weight in the first half of the pregnancy and then hardly any at all during the second half. You are so active that I would imagine this could happen to you :)

    I know what you mean about the pregnancy skin. I didn’t realise how beautiful mine was until it was gone! I look back on photos and just think it was amazing!

    As for stretch marks you might not get any, I also know plenty of women who didn’t. It’s just that people are so keen to share their horror stories that we always hear about the bad experiences from pregnancy – a pity when there are plenty of good ones :)

  • Hey Sue

    Don’t worry about what everyone tells you! Pesonally, I don’t think you’re going to have a huge weight gain. You’re petite and in the big scheme of things you’re tummy is small. Yes, you will probably put on more towards the end, but I don’t think it’s going to be anything great, and I you’ll get rid of it fairly quickly. And if you’re small, you may find you won’t even get any stretch marks, and if you do, they’ll probably be minimal.

    You’re looking great, and I have to agree with you, I didn’t enjoy being pregnant, but then again, I was humungus!…lol… The only thing I loved was that I got to sleep alot and dose off in front of the cricket. :)

    Enjoy your pilates and change of exercise. I think it will do you good.
