Aw I'm sorry you feel that way! I haven't fit in my winter coat for about a month now. My mom made me a preggo coat!

It's easy to just feel fat, because our bodies are changing and growing, but remember you are growing a little person in there! We are all different and all have different bellies. I'm on my third pregnancy, and my body sure shows it! haha! But I also have something beautiful to show for it, my son, and my baby-to-be.

Girl I feel ya. My belly is round but still rolly so I just look like a really fat preggo. Oh, well- Embrace it! I am working hard for this little boy and I am proud of my big , if not perfectly round, body. Also, my coat hasn't fit since Nov. I just layer what I can.

My dress coat doesn't button anymore either. I hate wearing coats in general so I refuse to buy a pregnancy coat. My casual coat still fits so I can always switch to that.

And I'm a proud member of is that fluff or is that a bump club! Hang in there, girl. In a couple more weeks, it will be a clear bump and you will rock it beautifully!!

If my DH said that, he'd get smacked... LOL! Men!

I don't often post bumps because of all the fluff, but I do need to update mine.

Your husband needs a muzzle. No offense.

I think no matter what body shape you have, it is easy to feel "fat" when you have a baby bump! I'm on the slimmer side and while I love my little bump and am even anxious for it to get bigger, when I glimpse at my body in the mirror sometimes it is just shocking! I feel huge and unattractive. Yet, I really do think that pregnant women look beautiful!

Oooh...them's fightin' words. Obviously your husband has not learned how to talk to a pregnant woman!
Don't listen to him...often men speak without thinking at all. Us women understand better how a comment like that would go round and round our heads for days, weeks, and months, so we're usually careful about what we say to other women about their looks. Men they just blurt out what's on their mind sometimes without a second thought and then don't even remember that they said it if you tell them about it later on!

If there were "the least sensitive" award in the universe, it'll go to my husband. Sometimes I am surprised I am still married to him.

I stopped being able to button my winter coat before I was pregnant! lol! Those wool coats don't have any kind of give. I bought a new maternity coat from Target.com for $29 about 3 weeks ago. LOVE IT!

Soon enough, all of our bumps will be ginormous and out of control, and we will all be complaining. Don't worry!

I had a male student (an 11th grader) who hadn't seen me since before Christmas break come up to me and yell, "Mrs!! You got real fat in your belly!!" All I could do was laugh. Poor fool! He has a lot of learning to do. I told him no to say the word "fat" to any woman EVER, then I hugged him because he's my favorite student from that year!
