so dh turns to me today and goes are you sure there aren't 2 babies growing in there.... I was confused at first then he told me to go look in the mirror, OMG!!! I am huge, I don't feel bloated either, so then I step on the scale, I have only gained 2 pounds so far. i knew my pants were getting tight hence the maternity jeans I am wearing the the 2nd pic. I feel huge right now...the doc did say the baby was growing at the rate it should, even though my meds casue slow gestational growth rate...I just have a feeling this is going to be a big baby ahhhh!!! So here are some pics so you can see the difference 3 weeks makes
at 8 weeks...
That is how my stomach looks now from 2 past pg's and no follow up sit-ups. lol
You look great. That really is partially bloat. Just wait another couple of weeks and you will start to feel your tummy get really hard. Then you will start feeling little butterfly movements!
The maternity pants look great on you too.
I was happy. You know what? I was anorexic my freshman year of college, so I understand the fear of being big. It was good for me when I finally started looking pregnant and not just chunky. I started wearing maternity shirts at 19 weeks...not that I really needed them, just because I looked more pregnant in them. Maternity pants, however, started much earlier. I probably would have started wearing them about where you are if I had had the money to buy some. I stuck it out to about 14 weeks and it was SO NICE to get into something that didn't cut across the gut (and make me feel even more sick than I was!)
