    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    ...if one of my co-workers asked me if I was pregnant without having an obvious pregnant belly, but today I almost hoped someone would ask. At least then I wouldn't feel self-conscious about my expanding waistline. I will be 8 weeks as of tomorrow and between the pregnancy, getting off of a stimulant medication for ADD and quitting smoking, I've definitely put on a few pounds. By a few, I mean 5 -7 lbs, but I'm only 5' 2". I know it's all for the best but, wow, I just feel fat! It's definitely time to invest in a few looser fitting shirts!!

    That sounds like me, minus 2 inches on the height. Lol. But I just feel fat. I'm only 10 weeks, and pregnant with my first. But I already feel huge. and it doesn't help that the girls at work are already rubbing my belly! They say it feels hard, I just think it feels like fat. Lol

    Thanks ladies! It's so nice to know there are others out there going through the same thing. Especially since it's still the first trimester and we're being selective about with whom we share the great news.

    Lol, It sounds rediculous, but I'm kind of ready to get big! The only symptoms I've had is that my boobs hurt like crazy! Which clearly no one else can tell that, Lol! But at times, I feel like people think I'm lying about it or something cause I haven't been sick or anything! So if they think they're seeing a baby belly, even though I'm just seeing fat! Then I guess I'll be okay. haha.
