One of my blog followers requested a belly photo. I'll be honest, even at almost 16 weeks here I'm still not showing. All my clothes still fit and everything. I was big before I got pregnant, so I'm assuming it'll be awhile still before anyone can notice anything. That aside, I can tell my fat is starting to redistribute, because it's starting to feel different. When I stand it's harder, when I sit it's all flab again. My injections are getting harder to do in my belly for some reason. Some clothing is starting to feel uncomfortable because of how it sits on my belly, not just from the bruises anymore but rather because of my weird fat redistribution process. I'm favoring stretchy clothes for comfort right now, but I can still wear my old jeans just fine too.
I'm sure my old clothes will fit for awhile longer, not just because I'm a bigger girl, but also because before this last cycle I lost 25lbs (3 inches off my waist!) from jogging and calorie counting- I never updated my wardrobe, and none of the weight has came back because I haven't gained a single pound yet (since I am a big girl, I don't think my OB will be too concerned- the less weight I gain in pregnancy, the better) But since my clothes were a little roomier beforehand, I can stretch them a bit longer.
I think my uterus is starting to give me a bit of a pregnancy belly though, I noticed some of my shirts that had extra room are starting to fit snugger in the midsection. But still not anything anyone would notice. Being a bigger girl, it complicates the idea of a defined pregnancy bump, because honestly... I know all women who get pregnant say that they just look fat, but most of them have a defined bump. I just look like I ate too much this week. My husband can't see any difference at all, if it wasn't for my shirts starting to get snugger... I probably wouldn't have either.
But, for the sake of my follower (and because I love her, lol) I'll post two for comparison. They're a little blurry. The first one is from 14wks, and the second one is from today (15wks5days). Not really much to see, sorry!
