Insecure About Stomach

This is my second baby and I hadn't lost all the little baby flab from the first preg yet. Furthermore, I put on about 4 pounds or so right before getting preg. Now I'm 16 weeks and while my clothes definetly aren't fitting very well, I just feel like I look fat and not really "showing." Has thi shappened to anyone? I had a fairly flat stomach last time and showed around 4 or 5 months. I just don't feel pregnant.

I'm in the exact same boat...except this is my 3rd. I don't FEEL pregnant. I'm starting to be a believer in those people that don't realize until they are 5-6 months along! I keep asking my hubby if I'm really pregnant!! We'll be complaining about our bellies before we know it!

I feel the same way. I was skinny when I had my first baby, but this time I was about 20 pounds heavier when I got pregnant, so I felt kind of fat already. Being pregnant just made me feel fatter, and look fatter--here I am 5 months pregnant, finally starting to really show but I still feel like I just look fat. I can see people looking at my stomach when I go out trying to figure out if I'm pregnant or just chubby, and half the time I feel like the answer is that I'm just chubby because I don't really look pregnant even to myself. I can't wait to be 7 or 8 months pregnant when there will be no mistaking it! :)

I went shppping yesterday for some comfy, cute clothes to fit my expanding belly. This weekend my husband and I are going away for the weekend to relax and have some romance. that's my advice for feeling yucky: take some time for yourself!
