I *feel* huge but everyone keeps telling me how small I am still and that I have such a "cute little belly". DH will sometimes do a double take if I have my belly out (I like to pull my shirt up and rub it
) and say "wow, you're so
pregnant!". But it's in a happy/giddy way, not a judgmental way so I just laugh along with him (because I feel the same!)
The midwife even told me the other day that I probably wouldn't look full term when I am (after looking me over and asking me my height), so even she thinks I'm not very big for 21+ weeks (and I assume she would know!).
I got sick early in pregnancy and lost 15 pounds. Got better, gained them all back plus 7 more (I'm gaining about a pound a week right now, so I'm happy with that). But I feel HUGE and it's not all in my belly. My butt/thighs have become ginormous and I don't fit into any of my regular pants any more - not because of the belly (I could still get away with the elastic around the button for that, I think, since I wear mostly low rise/hip hugger type pants) but because my a$$ won't fit into them! I only have one pair of non-maternity pants I can still get into and they were big and loose (by style) to begin with, sit low, and have a drawstring! And even my undies are feeling a bit snug lately!!
What I don't get is that even before I gained those extra 7 pounds on top of my usual weight, I was still feeling really big and not fitting into my regular pants any more, which I always wore at that weight, PLUS I had a belly on top of it all. What gives??
