23 weeks and sadly, still dont look pregnant. Anyone else? - Page 2

post #21 of 26
yeah, i hate those bewildered looks from people who you kind of know but don't really "know" (ya know? ha ha), who are all wondering if you're actually pregnant or just getting pudgy. hello, people? see these cheek bones? i'm not fat- it's a baby for gosh sakes!

i also find myself sticking my gut out in public, just to make sure people are sure i'm truly pregnant when they look at me. it's so silly, and afterward, i feel so dumb for needing strangers to believe i'm not just heavy.

Boy, how I envy anyone that doesnt show...I had that bump you all are talking about right when I had just missed my period...

now at 22 weeks people think that I should pop now...oh the comments are killing me so I have just decided that staying at home is what I have to do from now on...cuz i am sooo sensitive that anyone says anything and I am teary eyed.... granted this is pregnancy #5 but people have no mercy...so thank whatever it is that you thank that you aren't showing yet.

But i do remember for my first pregnancy i started wearing maternity clothes before i even hit two months hopng that i would show...lolol

i just wanted to add that at 21 weeks i don't really look pregnant...today a friend of mine (who is a guy and always likes to say things to piss me off) said, "i don't even think you are pregnant...you just look like your fat self." which i'm not fat, but i think he meant i just look pudgy. i wanted to throw him out of the car. i do worry that people who don't know i'm pregnant just think that i am gaining weight. i really don't care i just wish it was obvious that i was pregnant. so i know how you feel.

Yes, that is the thing. I just want it to be obvious. I want to walk into a store and for people to know.

i feel like this sometimes.. i think i look pregnant but im not skinny to begin with so some people probably do think im just big and fat..

but in a few months we are all going to be complaining that we are HUGE.. trust me!

I thought I was showing, got all excited when I "popped" and everything. But apparently I only show to myself and those who know me and see me every day, and also towards the end of the day. Others just think I'm overweight, even people I see about once a week or even once every couple of weeks don't realize I'm pregnant until I mention it. I'm actually down four pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight right now but I have a bump, people just think it is fat since I'm not in any way a size two. I was feeling pretty down about it until I remembered that with my first I started out at a size three (sigh) and at this point people didn't know what to make of me either. I'm 5'3 but I have wide hips so I guess the baby kind of hides in there. :

I've bought a few maternity clothes and I definitely look less pregnant in them. I was wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes until then and look more pregnant in them. I still wear some of them when I want to look obviously pregnant (and I guess the fact that they still fit, though they have some stretch, should show me that I'm not really showing that much yet).
