"Not fat, just pregnant"

I'm very tempted to buy that t-shirt. I'm in my least favorite pregnancy phase right now. My waist is gone, my belly is round but not in a cute pregnant way - more like a "too big lunch" or "you're getting chunky" kinda way. Most of my regular pants/shorts don't fit but my maternity clothes look goofy. It's just awkward because you feel every bit pregnant but it's just not obvious to the world and a little hard on the self esteem. Yes, even the 3rd time around - more so because you round out rather quickly but I swear if I hear any "twins?" comments, I will scream or cry...not really...I'll just try to laugh it off. And yes every pregnancy someone (close to me) will make the comment. Never say this to a pregnant woman ... unless maybe, maybe it is known she's had fertility treatments.

hey, do you know about the bella bands? They are for the in between stages of your jeans getting too tight and maternity clothes being too big. I had a couple and I wore them all them time. And, I'm sure you look great!
