It’s really interesting how pregnancy is different for everyone. This week I’ll be at the 14 week mark, and by the photos I posted, it’s so obvious how I’m showing already! Due to pregnancy related nausea & food aversion, I’ve actually lost 8lb since getting pregnant! I haven’t looked this good in a while, actually!
I have some friends who are not showing as much as I am at the same time in their pregnancy, and haven’t lost any weight, either. I also know people who are showing more than I am. My doctor says that no one should compare themselves to anyone else, as everyone is unique and things happen in different ways for different people. You can’t go by a textbook to predict what your pregnancy will be like… as they say, “your mileage may vary.”
That said, I love the fact that I am showing as early as I am! It’s really fun when people notice that you’re pregnant, and my maternity clothes are so comfortable, cute, and fun to wear. Despite the nausea, headaches, and other “malaise,” being pregnant is such a fun and happy time. I told Adrian the other day that I love feeling this way and definitely think I could go for a second one at some point… but we’ll see how I feel about that after I give birth to the first one. LOL!
