    Default really bummed now.

    I just posted pics on my space of my growing belly and i'm really bummed cuz i can't tell if i'm just getting fat or if it's all in my belly. I know i should be happy that my belly is growing but it looks bloated and not just baby IYKWIM. I have been working so hard to get rid of the belly fat and now it's all getting pushed out LOL. I guess i should just be happy that the baby appears to be growing but i can't help but be a little bummed Anyone else?

    I just wanted to add that I felt this way when first pregnant. DH and I were going out for a walk one day and nothing would button or be comfortable over my belly but it didn't seem to be growing yet it just seemed like fat and I sat down on the bed and cried (hormones) because I was fat and disgusting and nothing fit. It was only a week later that I was forced to buy maternity clothes because nothing else fit at all. The maternity clothes made me feel so much better though because I was more comfortable and it was a little easier to hide it if I wanted to. I think it's normal to feel kind of depressed when you start to grow because it just feels like fat at first and it kind of sucks. Since it's your third though I bet it won't be long at all before it's obvious baby!

    That's just how it is at this stage unless you're super skinny. For me, my belly looks like it's gone through WWIII after all the kids. It's really in bad shape. Even when I look at it, I get scared from all of the stretch marks and lack of muscle tone. There's no way anyone will be able to tell I'm pregnant until I am ready to deliver. That has happened in a couple of pregnancies.

    Well I'm a week and a dayish ahead of you so maybe your pic next week will be rounder also I'm not wearing jeans to take mine ! I'm wearing yoga or sweat pants most of the time now and jeans only to work or to go out. I think my jeans also make it look more like I'm getting fatter and less like I'm growing something in there.

    even my yoga pants are too tight and cut me off mid belly now! Have you seen my space and how huge I'm getting ?! I really wanted a cute round baby belly but that's not going to happen for a few more months, I think I was 5 to 6 months with DD before it looked nice and round....

    I'll have to go check out the pics!
    I tend to get a lovely baby belly, but even with #4 it'll probably take a while. I'm thin, but I tend to carry small and low, so it won't look like anything other than a little extra gut for a while yet.

    middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo
    baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
