Belly distention fears...

OK. I know this is silly, but when I was pregnant with my first, I had a lot of fears surrounding the growth of my belly.

3rd pregnancy, hopefully 2nd baby. I feel the same way. I will admit though that it is more about appearance. I want to feel cute and prego like "all" of those women. I was also less than pleased with the appearance of my belly. Looking back though, I really didn't look all that bad with my first. I need to get it in my head that I will probably look close to the same way. I'm probably not going to be happy with my appearance. I just need to enjoy it. This could be my last. I also have this weird fear of a growing belly when it comes to all the awkward inbetween stages. You know? The stages where people can't tell you look pregnant. You just look bloated. Blah. I want to wear a sign that says .. I'm not bloated... I'm pregnant.
