A bit of a vent...

I don't know which end of the spectrum I would want to be stuck on...some women keep hearing "Wow, you're due in March? You're HUGE! Do you think you'll make it that long?" Then there's other women that keep hearing "Wow, you're still so small!" Right now, I'd rather be hearing the happy medium of, "You look great!" and "Keep up the good work!" But instead, I'm one of the women that keeps hearing "You're still so tiny! Are you even wearing maternity clothes yet?" Yes. Thank you. I am. I was a size 4/6 before I got pregnant, so my clothes didn't really fit at all right away. I was wearing my pants with a belly band because I couldn't button them by the time I was 11 or 12 weeks. I didn't buy any new maternity clothes (well, pants anyways) until I was about 20 weeks or so. I had gotten a few items at the Salvation Army, and then bought a few more pairs of pants new because I couldn't find my size in dress pants at S.A. Granted, I'm pretty sure I could get away with just buying much larger jeans and such than I normally wear, and size large shirts and things, but I like the way maternity clothes actually make me look pregnant, and not just fat. Yes, I can still fit into about half of my pre-pregnancy things (mostly shirts...). I just wish people would stop and think about how their words may affect the person hearing them

That's all. :-) I feel better!

Glad you got that off your chest. No strangers know I'm pregnant so I'm on the opposite side, wishing someone would say that I look like I'm going to explode. Oh well. Enjoy your holiday!
