Can't stop looking at my tummy

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I work from home so it's even worse b/c I can pull my shirt up without anyone seeing me. I feel like I'm always looking at my stomach in the mirror the past couple of days. I'm still so amazed that I'm pregnant and now I'm starting to show a little so I've become obsessed with seeing the difference in my stomach. Is anybody else like this?

Oh yeah, just wait, it gets worse!

By about 7 months I'm always feeling it, resting my hands on it, etc. A pregnant belly (especially when it's your own) is just so dang awesome!!

I went into Hobby Lobby yesterday and caught myself going down the isle with all the mirrors. HONESTLY, I didn't do it on purpose. I've already caught myself resting my hands on my belly, people look at me funny bc I'm not THAT big. I do look like I'm about 3 1/2 months(and I'm only 8 weeks.) It's just a motherly thing, no matter how big or small you are, you're going to have those instincts.


My daughter(6 YO) see's people looking at my belly and starts rubbing/kissing it. She's marking her territory. It's too cute.

I'm obsessed with my belly too! I definitly have a bump which is strange but I LOVE IT! I rub it and hold it.

DH did his first tummy kissing last night - it was very sweet.

The only thing is that I have to keep reminding myself to stop sucking in. It's something I've been doing since I was like 10 years old. Now its okay for me to have a belly!

I pat mine a lot, even though there's not a ton to pat. I'm always feeling it too. It feels harder at night and I'll lay in bed with my hands on it. I talk to my stomach too, which weirds my husband out. He asked when I was going to start reading to it, totally joking. I said in a few weeks and he just looked shocked. Silly man.

I keep looking at my belly in mirrors too - at work in the lifts if I'm on my own! And I do like rubbing it. DH has started talking to it now and again as well - nothing beyond 'hellooooooo' so far though

I keep feeling my belly too...I keep checking to see where the top of my uterus is when I'm lying in bed. I definitely look thicker.

I am always looking at mine and it's an instinctive thing to put my hands on my belly. With DS, I didn't show for so long, and I was desperate to look pregnant... we went to Disney for Christmas when I was about 22 weeks and one of the ride operators (one of the few I was able to go on lol) said he knew I was pregnant because my hands were always on my belly . This time I am showing a lot sooner but I think I just look fat. I can't wait for the next month or so to pass!
