I must be showing!!

The first stranger asked me how far along I am. Yay! The people in my office were noticing, but they see me everyday so it wasnt a big deal. I went maternity shopping and bought too much this weekend. I will post a new belly pic on friday after my 17 week appt. So crazy how fast time is flying.

Yep, you know you're really starting to show when strangers feel comfortable asking! Can't wait to see the pic! I bet you look adorable.

Get ready for the weird and very personal comments from strangers. I sort of wish people would start noticing, that way I would feel less fat, haha, but then deep down I really hate and get tired of all the comments. Especially when I get so huge, everyone is convinced that baby is going to be born while I'm in the store!!

Ha! I had heading down to the cafe and someone asked me on the elevator in the hospital when I was due.. I told them I had just had my baby the day before. The ride was super silent the final 3-4 floors. :biglaugh:

Congrats on being noticed, Elizabeth! Smile Can't wait to see the pics! Biggrin

I love reaching the stage where it is clearly a baby bump and not just too much to eat. And in my case I carry weight on my stomach so pregnancy is the only time I don't feel like I have to hide my belly but can flaunt it, lol!

It's fun, but I could do without the, "are you sure there's only one in there?" comments.

Adriana, I was asked that once too but I was still pretty fat so I wasn't too mad haha.

This exactly! I feel so beautiful when pregnant because it hides my flaws!
