Does anyone else feel thicker in the midsection? I'm still in normal pants but I swear when I look in the mirror after a shower I look "thicker" (i.e. where did those love handles and muffin top come from?) and it's depressing. I know the baby is only the size of a prune, so... ugh.

You are still probably experiencing a lot of bloat. Eventually that bloat will be replaced by baby. I know I can't wait for that time!

Usually when I'm bloated it's concentrated to the front of my tummy, but this just looks flabby all over!

I feel like I'm thicker for sure. I'm a very thin person and was borderline underweight before I got pregnant. I am filling out my pants VERY well now lol

The bloat is evil! I'm hoping I pop soon because I was just super bloated FOREVER with my first. I felt totally fat and didn't feel like I looked pregnant at all! Hormones and bloat are not a good combination haha

Yes! And it bums me out too and like she said hormones make it worse... I talked to my cousin about it (she has 3 this is my first), she said think of it as one of the many sacrifices I will make for my child... I still feel fat, but I keep telling myself it's ok, you're creating a life, but man what I wouldn't give to have my normal summer body right now, especially with my vacation around the corner... I feel your pain sister! Lol

I'm bloated as well! I just look like I've gained 10lbs (or so to me). It's not fun.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my siggy!
