It’s March 22nd and I am five months into my pregnancy. I still fit in my pre-pregnancy jeans (yay!), but had to buy some maternity shorts and leggings.
Because most of my shirts tend to be somewhat loose, I can walk around and people can’t tell if I am pregnant or not. They might as well do a double-take.
If I wear tight shirts I do look like I have a tummy, but it doesn’t look like a tummy a five-month pregnant woman would carry. Than again, this is my first one. I don’t know what they should look like.
For all I know, they might just think that tummy is there because I like to eat or I am just gaining weight (lol)
I look in the mirror and can’t help but laugh.
“I look like if I am just in my first trimester,” I tell Mark.
When people ask me how far along am I and I answer, the usual response is “You don’t look like your five months!”
I smile. I know that.
I have asked my OB and he tells me that every woman is different but as long as the baby is healthy and growing that’s all that matters.
Oh, did I mentioned that I haven’t really gained weight either? I tend to go up-and-down.
Sure, maybe I am not showing as much.
Some say I’ll start really showing when I am 6 or 7 months, might as well place bets on this (lol). Others say I should eat more.
But as long as my baby is growing and it’s healthy that is all that matter.
I guess it depends. Some women want to look pregnant. Maybe I do too.
But for now, I am happy just the way I look :).
What about you? Did size mattered? Did they criticized you about it?
