I’m ready to LOOK pregnant

At my ultrasound last week, the technician bumped me up to 21 weeks. (I thought I was at 20 weeks.) That means I’m more than 5 months pregnant, but I don’t “look” pregnant.

When we tell people who don’t know us, they seem amazed. People who have known me can see that I have a gut (and enjoy pointing it out), but it looks more like a pooch than a pregnant tummy.

Most of my maternity clothes don’t fit, but then neither do my old clothes. My mom bought me a smaller pair of maternity jeans the other week and sent me some of her khakis, so I do at least have something to wear—even if it’s not pretty.

All that said, I want to be obviously pregnant. That way, the people who know me, but don’t know I’m pregnant will be able to realize that I’m not just gaining weight for the heck of it. Also, people will be nice to me when I’m just out in public. Some woman at Wal-Mart bumped me in the butt this weekend. If I had been obviously pregnant, I’ll bet she would have at least said excuse me.

Bob said I will be fussing about being obviously pregnant as soon as I really start to show. He might be right, but I’m ready for the special treatment from strangers!!

Of all the clothes I miss when pregnant, I totally miss blue jeans. And the maternity jeans just don't do the trick!

I didn't look obviously pregnant until nearly 6 mos, so even though I was gaining weight, I think a lot of people thought I was just getting chubby. I'm pretty small normally and I outgrew my sexy jeans and work pants pretty fast but settled (like you) for some semi-frumpy maternity pants.

There's an upside to all this though - now that I am in my eighth month of pregnancy, everyone and their mother feels like they need to give me advice on what to eat, and how and when. I almost wish I could hide the belly these days. Hang in there.

I think the items I miss the most are my cute fitted blazers. I had to give those up around my third month. My boobs didn't grow, but my rib cage certainly did, making buttoning anything around it practically impossible.
My husband also says I will get tired of looking pregnant--I just hope no stranger wants to rub my belly!

Well, here's a sad little story. I expect to be in that chubby stage right in time for my 10 year high school reunion. No one will know I'm pregnant, they'll just think that I've gotten chubby over the years.

During month 5 of your pregnancy you may experience occasional discomfort in your inner thighs, hips and lower abdomen called round ligament pain. This is because the ligaments that support your uterus are carrying load that is increasing. Pelvic tilt exercises helps tone your perineum and ease pregnancy aches and pains.

i'm 23 weeks pregnant and i just look pudgy!! i gained all the weight it just seems to be everywhere. My mother calls my little belly a pooch. i'm too small for maternity clothes and too big for my pants so i'm stuck with one of those belly bands (awful). i'm sick of looking fat i just want to look pregnant!
