Hello girls... have a new screen name...I'm EMILYVORPE. Due July 18th.
My husband is soooo very.... lovely with his words. We looked at a rental home 2 weeks ago and I purposely hid my belly under a sweatshirt. When I asked hubby how they didnt still see the big bump, hubby said "well, after 4 kids, they probably think you are...fluffier. Some people just let themselves BALLOON up to 200 pounds...." And here I am, 23 pounds away and 18 weeks left to gain it... I'm like...great...I'll have BALLOOONED!
Today, I asked him how my shorts looked. I've never worn maternity shorts and was 20 pounds overweight to begin with, so I'm self conscious. He said.... "well, you look pregnant!" And I was like "a simple they look good or bad would do...." and he said "it's not like you can hide it....you cant fit a size small into a 3x....so you cant hide your belly to look like a small..." :(
My belly already looks to be about 8 months, its very stressing. How big can I possibly get???? And how many more comments does hubby think I can handle?!
Your DH sounds like a real charmer. Have you told him how his comments make you feel? I've had to bring my DH back to reality a few times when he crosses the line with his comments. He now knows better.
