My Pregnancy Weight Gain Just Makes Me Feel Fat
My husband and I found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks. For 2 to 3 whole weeks before that, I was being told by a lot of people that I was "gaining weight," which I have NO problem with, I was good for gaining weight, I wanted to fill out some more. Two days before I found out, my husband told me I looked really pregnant. And apparently, I was! I gained 6 lbs. the first 3 weeks, which, ok, isn't that much, but on me, it looked like I was 5 months preggo when I was like 8 weeks.
Now that I'm 15 weeks, I'm getting so sensitive about it. I looked at myself in the mirror today and cried. I know it's stupid; I'm just not used to it at all. Nothing fits, and hasn't for a while. I do want to keep some weight after I give birth, I just feel like I'd be more comfortable with it if it wasn't this huge belly sticking out in front of me.
And my husband isn't sensitive to it, sometimes he makes jokes about it, sometimes he just tells me not to cry, that I'm not fat I'm just pregnant. But then he talks about it with his mother and she is just as insensitive.
I just feel like a house, and I'm not even half way done yet!
