Early pregnancy, feeling frumpy!

I'm 11 weeks pregnant with baby 2, still about a stone over my ideal weight before falling pregnant this time! I'm feeling bloated, spotty, and generally yuck about my appearance.

Any suggestions for ways to cheer myself up and look a bit more presentable? I'm about a size 10/12, tall, and not much spare cash smile

Im feeling the same rockchick pre-pregnancy with dd i was a nice slim 10, could wear ANYTHING and feel great about my body...
Now (as you know) i have a 6 mo and am 13 wks pg. Didnt have chance to get back to my pre pg size and im now a wobbly, chunky 14.
Dont feel great about myself and not been out of my maternity clothes much!
Im going to treat myself to a haircut and having my nails and eyebrows done next week to help me feel abit better about myself. I also feel great after a nice soak in the bath with a face mask and a bit of lavender oil smile
Painting my toenails and straightening my long curly hair makes me feel momentarily gorgeous.
Just wait until youre a bit further along and youll feel gorgeous cause youll have a lovely bump to hide behind grin
I cant wait to look pg and not just chubby!
