Getting round

While I LOVE the end result of pregnancy and holding my beautiful babies, I still dread getting big and round. I am such a self conscious pregnant woman!! :) While most people notice the little basketball in my belly, and that "pregnancy glow," I instead get focused on the water retention and the clothes that don't fit.
If I'm honest, I've really done remarkably well keeping the weight gain to a minimum. I've been exercising every day and watching my diet. Despite my efforts it always seems that before my belly really gets round, my face shows off the pregnancy roundness first. :) I love the irony!!
Ah well, the good part is that I'm doing well, eating well, and the baby is growing strong and healthy-- thats worth all the facial and belly roundness in the world!! (just don't look for too many more pregnancy pictures)
16 weeks (4 months) and just starting to show

22 weeks (5 1/2 months) and obviously pregnant

Despite how you feel, you look so cute Kath! I gained the same amount with each pregnancy (a little over 40lbs) no matter how much I tried to eat right an exercise. It was like my body had surplus fat ratio it needed to meet. Thankfully it all comes back off in the end.

Beautiful Kathryn....I'm praying that I can look as good as you when I'm pregnant!

Honestly, I'm only a couple weeks ahead of you and I am WAY bigger than you. Great job on the exercising and eating healthy. I do try but don't do so well....not good.
