Is it too big? Is it too little?...Ok. Pretty much...is it too big?
When I was pregnant with Barclay, I used to google "8 weeks pregnant"...or "25 weeks pregnant"...and then click images and view all the bellys out there and compare mine. I wanted to look pregnant the minute I got a positive pregnancy test...but my wise younger sister kept reminding me how big my baby actually was:-( I think around 15 weeks my mom finally told me, that I was barely starting to show.
It's so hard to FEEL so pregnant, and be consumed by all these thoughts of your baby...only to look completely normal on the outside.
I am just 7 weeks yesterday and I feel already like I'm getting quite a bump! I've heard when you have a second baby, you show earlier...but I mean...as I've stated before...my baby is the size of a tic tac.
But then I think about the uterus is bigger...and the muscles...but basically I'm just trying to make excuses that I have a bump that was there before I got pregnant. Yes. I'm admitting my baby bump is mostly pre pregnancy softness with a tiny tic tac in it.
But I want to look pregnant! I have pulled out my maternity clothes and have lined them up on my bed, excitedly getting to know my whole new wardrobe...my old friends.
And why wouldn't you want to wear paneled pants and flowy shirts that accentuted your best curves anyhow? They're so comfortable and it's the only clothes I don't put on reminding myself to suck in!
The only thing keeping me from sticking my belly out and rubbing it like I'm 6 months pregnant is you people out in the word who will whisper behind my back..."Doesn't she know that baby is the size of a tic tac?"
