Pregnancy is starting to trigger ED thoughts

So I am 22 weeks pregnant, and have been doing well with eating. I am getting married in a week and a half. I am super anxious about how I am going to look in my wedding dress. I just got my hair done, and I got home and my mom said she didn't like it for the wedding. I just feel a bit lost. I want to keep doing well in recovery. I want to keep eating normally. I just feel like maybe I don't know what eating normally is at the moment. I know I should follow my hunger cues, and I know that in the second trimester and on the hunger level increases. I guess I am not used to feeling hungry so often.

I guess I could use some encouragement to keep staying strong right now.

you go girl, eat what your heart and baby inside desire.........

12 more weeks to go yeh thats a way to go so keep on eating and let the dress be tailored if necessary but let your tummy do whatever it wants w/ baby inside too. Congrats on conceiving and for becoming a Bride to be Very Soon......Keep up the appetite even if it is difficult.I have read that Pregnancy is the best thing to happen to women who have lost their appetites in earlier development....


Hi. I wanted to check in and see how you are coping with things. When is the wedding? How are you doing with the pregnancy and eating and your body changing? The wedding is any day now, perhaps even tomorrow? I hope you are able to enjoy this special time in your life. Thinking of you iwanttolive
