I love all the bellies!   I've got to try and get a picture today.  This little girl has really decided that she needs more space.  Pop!  Out goes the belly.

Man, I wish my body made such beautiful baby lines! I am nearly 23 wks and I just look like I have gained weight. No cute little belly. I carried all my kids like this so I am not surprised, but it is a little frustrating that no one ever guesses I am pregnant.

Avasmom - what a great picture!

 

You all have such amazing bellies! I am 21 weeks and still haven't taken 1 picture yet Sheepish.gif. Maybe tonight I'll get DH to snap some.

Sigh.  Today I was at the grocery checkout and only had DD with me.  The cashier was like, oh she's cute, is she your only?  I explained that she had a big  brother and that she's going to be a big sister in December.  Without missing a beat, she says, "oh you're adopting?  Cool!"  I blinked a few times.  Really?!  I feel as big as a house and I don't even look preggers??  lol

oh no! Well I guess it is all good as long as no one thinks we are pregnant when we are not!

Ha, I need to take a 24 week picture...this little guy popped out EVEN MORE this week.  People are already thinking I'm due any day now. Um, no. I'm just short, with nowhere for a baby to sit except out in front!  I'm jealous of the people that can wear their regular clothes for the first 7 months!

I'm so torn.  I get comments both ways and am offended by both- lol.

In anything loose I don't look a bit pregnant.  In a regular tank I look pretty pregnant.  I have no idea how this can be.  I'm nearly 21 weeks!  I'm wondering when it will become really obvious.

 

I say to people who are very offensive, "Would you like it if I commented on your body like that?"  I say it gently because most of these people have no idea what they are doing.  But I say it anyway, so hopefully, they think next time.

Yeah.  Me, too.  I am nowhere near able to wear my regular clothes except for a few dresses that are extra roomy in the chest.  I'm up at least two cup sizes and I'm a bit taller than average so I just look really chesty.  My boobs overshadowed my belly until about eight months last time.  I guess I'm in the jealous of the women who can wear their regular clothes and also the women who look pregnant instead of fat camp.  I'd take either of those over what I've got going on right now.  Women 'friends' at work straight up grab my breasts with BOTH HANDS while saying, "Those things are HUGE" or some version of that sentiment.  Today I got, "Where are you hiding that baby?"  because at 24 plus weeks I don't have a real bump, I seriously just look like an average size ten.  I'm usually a two.  Healthy baby is all that matters, but I know I would be so much more confident if my pregnancy were obvious to the world.  I'm so tired of the focus being on how I just look 'bigger' and how huge my boobs are.  I'd even gladly allow people to grope my stomach if they'd just lay off the breasts!

innocent.gif I started wearing a belly band last Friday so in case my pants feel tight during the course of the day at work I can unbutton them, but I still wear my regular jeans buttoned.

 

I don't think it will last much longer. It was about the 23-24 week point last time when I went from "gee, maybe you should cut back on the burritos and hit the gym" to "oh, congratulations." I feel huge (in the self-conscious way, not the "I look pregnant" way) and DH acknowledges there's definitely baby popping out, but I doubt if random people I'd see at the store and even people at work would guess I'm pregnant. Until next week, that is.

26 weeks today, due Dec 27.  It's my first, so I have a hunch it will be a January baby.  We'll see!

Wow, you ladies look amazing!  I feel huge compared to you all!  Maybe it's a 4th pregnancy thing.  I'll have to snap a pic anyway!
