|For some reason I have a line around the middle of my tummy still which adds to the "just fat" illusion. [gross]You know, the one where your pants go, that kinda separates the upper roll from the lower roll?[/gross] well that never went away, even though there is definately uterus on the top and the bottom and not much else -- it's all hard and not flabby, but there is a definate line there still. I'm hoping it at least goes away in the 8th month or so.|

Today some guy called me "fatty" and I was so upset... I feel great...physically all is well...no problems whatsoever) I think that's what has been bothering me...I look more fat than pregnant this time....
Here is my pic from last week.

Go and take those pictures!
Your baby doesn't care if you're fat or skinny, your baby loves you. He or she could have picked any mother in the world but you were the one he/she wanted -- including the body you have right now at this instant. In a few years your child is going to want to know about what is was like when you were pregnant. They're going to want to see you no matter what size you are. Do you want to tell them that you didn't take any pictures because you were ashamed of your body while it was creating him or her?
Take your pictures and rejoice in your wonderful body that is growing your baby so well. Being skinny does not make you a good person any more than being fat makes you a bad one.
