EDIT EDIT EDIT!!!! How far along do I look?

Ok here's the truth. I'm not pregnant. I have stage 4 endometriosis and PCOS. I'm on my period and having a horrible flare up. I posted the other night about my kids missing halloween bc of my flare up and this is a pic of what I suffer through every period. I'm normally a nice healthy size 7-9 with almost no overhang. All of my organs in my lower abcavity are covered with endometriosis.

I posted this to get perspective bc strangers comment all the time and its awkward to explain I'm not pregnant. They say I look ready to pop, so I was wondering if it was really that bad and I've just grown used to it.

Did anyone have any doubt at all that I was pregnant?

Thanks I'm sorry too mama. Do you swell like that? If so how do you handle it?

Yes! I know personally I can feel it moving through my body. (The sick feeling). It also makes my hip bones very sensitive.


Quoting Anonymous:

That is correct. Although in some cases, such as mine, it's severe sickening diarrhea to the point of passing out and throwing up, dehydration, shakes, weakness, sudden fever, the whole works. The most accurate description is it feels like poison coursing Through every vein n your body at once.




Quoting Erica705:

The way I've understood it is that it starts in the uterine tissue and can spread. Most commonly to your rectum and closer areas. However it can spread to your stomach, intestines and even lungs. It often causes digestion problems because it squeezes your intestines so food and waste can't pass through.






Quoting Anonymous:

Its still not an extremely researched disease. I don't totally understand it all myself. I geuss it just progresses and spreads.








Quoting unsuspected:

I've never heard of endometriosis being any where other than the uterus. I know I could Google, but I'm lazy. Can you please explain?

I do swell. Not quite as bad, but definitely bad enough to be asked if I'm pregnant constantly. It depends on my mood as to how I handle it. Sometimes I just tell them the truth. Other times I make up a date and move on.

Mine too. I have to wear maternity jeans or a maternity sling bc I can't button my tight jeans. Its awful. And a seatbelt...oh I'd probably rather die in a carcrash than put that thing on around my hips and belly.

I was actually the same way about the hip part, now I wear super loose pants and no belt. I know exactly what you mean about the seatbelt.

Same here. I feel bad lying but I just can't explain this shit 20 times a day. Its hard to believe so people think I'm a liar just because.
