I'm 15 weeks into my 2nd pregnancy and I'm finding this time around really hard with all the changes to my body.
It's probably so petty but I've already started to get stretch marks which I didn't get at all in my first pregnancy and I have put more weight on this time. I'm so disgusted in myself that I can't look in the mirror, I'm embarrassed of my bump and I won't let my husband see me naked. I change in our en-suite because I don't want him to see how gross I look.
I know the majority of women call their stretch marks tiger stripes, badges of honour etc. but I honestly think it's repulsive and makes me feel sick to look at myself. Plus, I'm only going to get bigger.
I know there are so many women who are trying to get pregnant out there so I'm sorry if I sound ungrateful but I lost my independence and my identity when I became a Mum and now on top of that I'm losing the one thing I have left and that's being confident and happy with my body. It's making me resent this new chapter in my life and I don't know what to do.
