I'm 34/35 weeks depending on who you ask, and I've started to have a lot of anxiety about not looking pregnant to strangers. I have said before I'm pretty much over the "Omg, I have a B belly!" Thing, I don't think it's going away although it's getting bigger/more pregnant looking, it still has an indent over my belly button. I see tons of women obsess about this on the internet and I was thinking that I was just beyond that and it was just vanity/attention seeking. I have never had a stranger ask me about my pregnancy without some other clue that I'm pregnant.
But then I started to realize that if I am out alone (and in the AZ heat, this is more of a concern for me) and if I were to fall/falnt or have something else happen, since people don't seem to recognize me as pregnant even at 34 weeks, no one would know and they wouldn't know to check on the baby or to take extra care with my well-being, or if I were to go into labor or something. :(
This seriously scares me even though I know it's super unlikely. I've been staying in most days anyway because it's seriously insanely hot (highs 109-111), but this is just one more reason I don't feel like I should be going anywhere and it's another reason that I think that it kind of sucks being fat and pregnant. :(
I hope I can stop worrying about this so much, but I don't know if that will really change how secure I feel being out alone.
