Hi Everyone,

A little about me...

I'm 41 and like most everyone else on here got the shock of my life a couple of weeks ago!

I think some of it probably is due to the fact that you're pregnant with #3. I'm on #4 and I started showing a bit too early for my comfort, too. I wouldn't necessarily be concerned about how you look but rather with weight gain. If you're on target for that, then appearances, while not necessarily thrilling to you, shouldn't be a huge concern.

Certainly could also be the fibroid as well, and I'm not sure you can do anything about that. I've no experience with that myself.

Try to be easy on yourself in any case. You've got quite a way to go and fixating on this aspect could drive you batty. All that matters is that you and baby are healthy.

Congrats and welcome!
