Anyone else awkwardly pregnant?

I'm 16 weeks and I haven't gained any weight yet but I've gotten puffier looking. Honestly I just look fat not pregnant.

Anyone else feel awkward and feel like you are in an in between stage?

  • While I am pregnant I should say. Or maybe it is all of the time.

  • When I was in the first part of my pregnancy, I used to cry because I just felt fat and though nobody would know I was pregnant and think I was merely overweight. I didn't realize that most people don't show until decently fat into the pregnancy. I was considered underweight for my height before I got pregnant. I think nature was trying to balance things out so that I could be in better health to support the baby.

    I used to buy shirts that basically said I was pregnant. It wasn't necessary, by any means, but it made me feel better. You could try that. :)
