I give up. My clothes literally do not fit. I haven't gained weight...and my pants simply will not button. I really didn't think that this happened so early in pregnancy. My pants will close in the morning (standing) but when I sit, it is terribly uncomfortable and by the end of the day trying to close them is just laughable. I started wearing my Bella Band yesterday. I have thrown my hands up. It's funny...I still feel like a fraud wearing it. I feel like a "faker." Damn you IF for screwing up my mind.
With that being said, I hope I didn't jinx this pregnancy, but I went ahead and ordered 2 maternity dresses today. I have a really important banquet to go to with DH in 3 weeks (I'll be 9 weeks at that point) and not one of my dresses that I own fits. So after polling some of my message board girls (who have all assured me that tight pants are perfectly normal for 6 weeks along) I decided that rather than buy a dress that is one size bigger for this party, to just go ahead and get a maternity dress that I will continue to wear. After DH's vote, I ordered these two. I am hoping that they will cover my belly (which looks like puffy fat belly) and will eventually be able to show off a nice round bump.
I feel strangely ok ordering these dresses because I am confident that this pregnancy is going to be just fine. I am not afraid of having a miscarriage at the moment and being afraid won't change the outcome.
As a side note, I am terrified that I am flying this week. I have done tons of reading and everything I have found says flying absolutely does not increase the risk of miscarriage. I hope that is true!!!!!
