Until I saw the comparison of 11 and 12 week belly pictures, I didn't think I had expanded much, but well, I have! I do not generally run around in bikini tops, but we had just taken A swimming at Gramma's house, and I was hot. I am often hot now, and not in a Sports-Illustrated-Swimsuit-Issue kind of way. More like who-turned-on-the-heat-hormonal kind of way. Not as attractive.
On the weight gain front, I am proud to say that I have gained 9 pounds or so! I never thought I would be happy about it, but all the doctors and nurses stress it to me about every 2 minutes, so I am eating when I can, and trying to get a good amount of protein, too. My thighs are starting to show it, and it is not pretty. I knew that early weight gain to build up fat stores had to go somewhere, I just hoped it would be my breasts and my belly... not so much. Today when I put on my bikini, I was saying I looked like my hips and thighs had grown (in a sad voice) and my daughter comes in and says, "Oh Mommy! You haven't grown. You are still short, so don't worry!" She always yanks me right back to what matters. In this case, baby-growing, not looking toned in a bikini.
