    Yup, spent the day at work being very uncomfortable as my maternity trousers are now feeling very tight around the thighs. My mum also kindly pointed out that my legs were looking chunky at Christmas! Thanks mum! Hoping it wont take long to loose once baby is here, if not I'm going to need a whole new wardrobe! Can't wait to go for a jog!

    i haven't noticed weight anywhere else apart from my thighs!!! (obvs bump) but yeah its really common for fat stores to build on thighs..... not sure why but it does, should be easy enough to lose after birth though :)

    I'm sure no one else can even tell (you looked great in your bumpy pic - no thunder thighs there!) and it's offset by the bump. I swear I have put a stone on my chin... it's really turning into a double one, I keep straining my neck trying to stop it from looking too bad. Why am I fat storing in my chin?!? :rofl:

    I have never been so relieved than when I read this! I honestly thought it was just me who had put on weight on my thighs!
    I've got a massive bump and thighs but no weight anywhere else, thank you feel so much better now x x

    I think I remember reading that it naturally stores in the thighs and lower back in prep for breast feeding - mine have been rubbing together for weeks - no impressed :(
