My father asked me this when he dropped by the house this morning.
I wore a fitted t-shirt and very loose sweat pants, not really caring what I might look like to the delivery guy or family member. Looking down at my belly, I could only reply, “Well, I think I’m showing more!”
I guess to the average person I don’t look quite pregnant yet – certainly not when I wear a top loose enough to conceal any bulges. I didn’t post a progress picture last week because of this – I didn’t think the photo showed much difference from the week before. But my belly button has begun to poke out a bit, my stomach to protrude ever-so-slightly more than what was at first considered only a “beer belly.”
Some things have definitely been growing, though! To put it cutely, I read on another blog that pregnancy made you look “half Victoria’s Secret model, half college guy with a beer belly.” I’ve never been able to actually fit into my small B size bra, but I just might have to go up slightly in size if this continues!
But to truthfully answer my dad’s question, I honestly have no idea when I’m going to begin looking pregnant to the casual observer. I don’t know when my belly is going to bulge out in the way that other women’s seem to do after only 3 months or so. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I’m not really complaining, either!
The doc said I didn’t have anything to fear with regards to birthing a 10 pound baby. I’m hoping this belly is just one more confirmation of that!
