If you've watched my snaps this morning you'll know I haven't been feeling great. Today is the first day I've felt any negativity being pregnant. I love being pregnant, don't get me wrong, but today I just feel fat!!! The past couple of days I've been going through my wardrobe and each day everything seems to feel a little tighter. It's so disheartening but also very uncomfortable to feel this way.
I am still at the stage where I don't really look pregnant. I look chubby and as if I've put on a few pounds. I can't wait until I actually get a bump and am able to wear maternity jeans. I've started wearing maternity leggings from H&M which are so comfortable.
I know some of you are probably feeling this way too. I know so many of you all are pregnant too and at some point might get to this stage where you just don't feel comfortable in your skin. I've spent so long trying to keep my weight down and know having it creep back up is something I wasn't ready for.
I say to friends, family and Chris that I don't feel great and that I feel fat and I get the same answer, Yes but your pregnant. Sometimes its hard to except that your body is going to change in such a short space of time. Coming to terms with your new body and embracing it is probably the biggest thing I have to face during this change.
I suppose this is me just venting my feelings and hoping that some of you are feeling this way too. I hate talking negative about the whole experience because I wouldn't change a thing and I love being pregnant but when you can't find anything to wear it just gets to me.
I hope this helps some of you to know your not alone.
