Concentrate on your baby. Your body is changing in order to help your baby grow and develop. It is a natural process.
Express your feelings. Talk with your partner, family, or friends about how you are feeling. Keeping your feelings bottled up will only make you feel worse.

Try to get out for some enjoyable exercise. A light swim or walk can help you clear your mind and get the focus off your body.
Take up prenatal yoga. Yoga focuses not on how your body looks, but on the link between your body and your mind.
Practice self-massage. Touching your own body will help you to become more familiar and accepting of it.
Learn as much as you can about pregnancy. By educating yourself, you will know what to expect and feel more in control.
If you are really having serious issues, seek out mental health counseling.

My pre-baby body is gone ... for good!

Don't worry new moms! After your baby is born, your body has to adjust and return to a non-pregnant body. Your stomach may seem more of a pooch rather than the toned abs you are use to. Don't expect a flat belly after your delivery. Remember, your body has been through a lot in giving birth and needs time to recover. Give yourself some time to rest and catch up on some sleep.

The American Pregnancy Association suggests exercising as a way to help you get your pre-pregnancy body back. Join a gym that offers childcare or load up your stroller and walk through the neighborhood. This will also help get you out of the house so you can feel refreshed.

Pregnancy and Eating Disorders

Having an eating disorder can increase your chances of never being able to get pregnant. The longer you have an eating disorder, the higher the risk that you will face some type of fertility problems. There are basically two types of eating disorders: anorexia and bulimia. Anorexia involves starving oneself and avoiding appropriate food intake. Bulimia involves binge eating and then purging by vomiting, using laxatives, or over-exercising to rid the body of excess calories. Both types of eating disorders affect the reproductive process, pregnancy, and health of the baby.

Eating disorders affect pregnancy negatively in a number of ways. The following complications are associated with eating disorders during pregnancy:

Premature labor
Low birth weight
Stillbirth or fetal death
Intrauterine growth retardation
Likelihood of caesarean birth
Delayed fetal growth
Respiratory problems
Gestational diabetes
Low amniotic fluid

Learn to Love Your Body Image

Body Image And Your Kids
Some women welcome their pregnant bodies, while others are in complete shock over the different changes. Naturally, your body is going to be different than it was before you were pregnant. Hormone fluctuations will cause your uterus to expand, your breasts to grow, your feet to enlarge, and your skin to break out. You may suffer increased fatigue and incredible food cravings. Let's not even mention varicose veins and mood swings!

Loving your body before pregnancy can help you get through the physical and emotional changes during pregnancy. Changing your body image while you are pregnant is a pretty tough thing to do, especially if it was already low to begin with. Here are some ideas to try and help you love and accept your pregnant body:

For some women, body image is a huge concern, especially during pregnancy.
