Anyone else feeling really self conscious about their belly? I know I'm bigger this time than last, and people feel the need to point it out. I feel so self conscious about my belly and HATE the comments about it. I actually understand why women in the 1800's went into confinement when they started showing! DH said I look so big. My mom told me that another girl who is due a couple weeks before me is like half my size. My SIL said I'm so not used to you with a belly as I took off my coat - even though she's seen me 3 times this week. My dad said wow, you're really showing, there's certainly no hiding it now.
I'm so sensitive about it this time around. When I was 7 months with DD my brother made a joke about a beer belly, and then I promptly managed to break the chair I was sitting on and fell flat on my *** - and that didn't bother me nearly as much as how I feel now. I feel like my belly is probably pretty cute, but for 6-7 months. Not 5. And I'm feeling awful about it! I can't help how my belly grows - I eat healthy, and I'm not fat. Would people please shut up about my belly?!?
