This pregnancy was a bit of a suprise (I was on birth control pills). So I guess I wasn't prepared for the onset of early weight gain as much as I was in the past. I'm 8 wks and put on 4-5 lbs already! I actually love love love pregnant bellies and maternity wear. I have about 3 big bins of maternity clothes in the attic from my past pregnancies! But I find myself being disappointed last week. I had to use the belly band with my new pants because they were too tight buttoned. (I lost 10 lbs in the summer and was enjoying my size 4 figure and just bought a few new dress pants the week before my BFP.) I feel guilty thinking all of this. I have never been vain or actually even cared about fashion. But I was at the point where my "last child" (haha) was turning 2 and I was tired of dressing like a "mom" and started shopping for more trendy clothes for myself! And then I got pregnant with #4. I do feel completely blessed to have another chance to bring a beautiful baby into this world but I'm disappointed about the timing. I definitely know pregnant = weight gain, especially with this being #4, but I guess I was hoping to keep in my new clothes just a bit longer...maybe it's just the hormones. Anyone else greiving the loss of your pre-preg clothes and not quite ready for maternity pants?
dont be too hard on yourself. I felt like that with my dd and I know hormones had alot to do with it. this time i'm almost 10lbs bigger then last time and I'm scared to put on two much wieght. There is always something we find to worry about.
