Is it possible to start growing a baby belly at 13 weeks? I don't really think so, but yesterday and today have found me ridiculously uncomfortable in my regular shirts. I haven't gained any weight yet, but I feel like I should be unearthing my giant container of pregnancy clothes. I look at my stomach and wonder if it's actually bigger or if it's just my imagination. I just feel bigger all over.
I remember when I was pregnant with Thomas and Anna that there was a long period where I couldn't wear maternity clothes, but all of my regular clothes felt uncomfortable and awkward. Is there a fashion remedy for this?
Nothing brings back the painful and uncomfortable feelings of puberty like pregnancy. Your whole body morphs beyond your control and you barely understand the things that are happening to you. You just hope that it will all work out alright and that you'll end up looking more like Molly Ringwald and less like whomever played her unpopular, unattractive friend in her movies. I guess that no matter how grown up you become, there's still an insecure 13 year old who lives on, desperately hoping she gets her braces removed before her first kiss.
