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.
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!
Aahh.. My husband told me I used to look skinny but now I look "too wide" the other day and repeated it again.. so that does not help either
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!
Today I was not able to zip my winter coat... So angry!
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!
