I have the opposite problem. No one seems to realize that I am pregnant. I am having some hip and pelvic discomfort so I waddle around like half the time and people say things like, "are you okay, you are walking funny". Then I say, "well, I'm pregnant, so...." and then they give the shocked, "oh, really? you don't look pregnant!" I think I look pregnant of course, but apparently everyone else just thinks I just have a really fat stomach I don't know what else to do to make it more clear. I waddle around and wear maternity clothes, yet it's not obvious to anyone. This happened with Ds too, I am overweight and I carry really tucked in, so I guess it is hard to tell. And then I get a lot of comments of, "oh, that is great that you aren't showing yet!" Which is so confusing to me. Why is that "great"? Are pregnant women so disgusting to look at that you would rather I not look pregnant when I am? Or do you actually think not showing that much yet = not feeling any symptoms of pregnancy. Hello, the baby is still just as big and weighs the same amount as every other 7 month pregnant woman's fetus does! I feel far worse this pregnancy than I did with Ds and am having a lot of discomfort in the pelvic area because baby dropped right down into it this time. I didn't feel this way with Ds until the last week, and I still have 3 months to go!
I am not "huge" but am pretty small, if I wear a baggy shirt/outerwear people wonder pregnant/fat. I think I look like I have a hugo stomach and sure as hell feel like it! Especailly with all the sciatic pain.
I still have a huge baby in there thank you I just happen to be quite long from hip to ribs which makes shirt buying highly inconvenient but apparently means I can "hide my condition" longer then most. grr. I hurt, I have a 31wk baby in my belly thank you jerkwads.
