As I was relaxing, watching TV, I saw pregnant women EVERYWHERE, on every channel! For some reason, I started freaking out about my own stomach expanding out like that! It's really starting to scare me. Even though I'm being irrational, some looked in pain and so disfigured! I always thought that pregnant women were beautiful, but now I'm starting to be scared of what *I* will look like in a few months. Am I going crazy or am I just scared about being pregnant in general?? I really hope I'm not the only one that's ever felt like this before. I really hope I snap out of it soon. Any advice?

I'm not too worried about how I'll look - I'm scared about the whole "life change" thing! I mean, I'll have to be totally responsible for a tiny little baby - how I raise this child will affect their lives! GULP.

Try to keep in mind that one of the most exciting moments of pregnancy is when you feel the baby move for the first time!! As your belly grows you can put a flash light up to it and the baby will follow and sometimes kick out at it. It's an exciting time and there are many benefits to the big belly :)

Yorkie- I feel the same way. I think I'm affraid of the fact that I just don't have any control over my own body anymore. Some days I'm soo excited and can't wait until I start showing, and other days I'm terrified...So don't worry, your not alone!!

Thank you so much for your response, everyone! SuzieQ - Don't I know how you're feeling! I'm 21 and in school, YIKES! I'm sure we'll do a great job raising our babies =) I'm so glad to know I'm not alone. I'm excited to get a real belly, too. Now, I just look/feel pudgy...

I am surprised how vain i am being. I always thought pg women were beautiful too, and now i just keep hoping that i dont get fat. isnt that terrible! I want the pg belly, but I just want people to know that Im pg and that its not just a pot belly hehehe. its silly, really, im ecstatic about the baby, so much that it really doesnt seem real. sometimes i do feel like my body is not in my hands anymore and that if something went wrong that i would have absolutely no control. that is a scary feeling. but im sure everything will be great for all of us :)

Since we're kind of on the subject - how is everyone's tummy doing now and how far along are you? I'm 9w5d and in the mornings, my stomach is a bit bloated, nothing noticable to anyone else. Then, by 6pm, my belly is sooo bloated! I show my dh and ask if I'm losing my mind or what?! I know it's just bloating, but I can't believe how much I get!!!

SuzieQ- When is your due date? I'm about exactly as far along as you are. My Due date is Oct 2nd. So far I'm just bloated too, I've gained a lot of weight this trimester too because of trying to keep food in my stomach so I don't feel sick. So, its hard to tell if the bloating is actually bloating, the baby, or just extra fat haha.

I'm almost 5 weeks. I just look pudgy. At first I was REALLY bloated, but it went away after a while. ::sigh:: I want people to know im preggo, not pudgy! hhaha

Preggosause, I'm due oct 1, but that's based on a normal 28 day cycle. I have longer cycles 34 days, so I'm not sure if it will change. When are you due? I haven't weighed myself for almost two weeks, so I don't know if I've gained weight. I've been snacking a lot, and when I get hungry - I HAVE to eat! It's like my hunger is overwhelming! :)

SuzieQ- I'm Due Oct.2nd...I totally know what you mean about the hunger thing! I wake up in the middle of the night STARVING, and I HAVE to eat or I start to feel really sick. Its really annoying actually. I've never experienced hunger like this!
