Awkward Stage

So I am so happy to be in the second trimester but it also makes me nervous. Now that my symptoms have calmed down quite a bit it's hard to feel pregnant. I have a little bump and I know it's early I just thought that since this is my second pregnancy that I would show a little sooner. I just can't wait to have an obvious belly. Oh and most of all to feel this LO move.I don't have another appointment till Dec. 26th.

Anyone else find this stage rather awkward?

yep, this stage is completely awkward! i found it helpful to use a fetal doppler to get reassurance that baby was still doing well in there before i could feel him moving around so much. and the stage between having your normal waistline and having an obvious baby bump is so difficult! good luck making it through this part - the fun is all to come! :)

You know my DH pointed out to me the other day that I haven't taken any belly shots yet. I think I had at least two by now with DD. Then again I have been a lot sicker with this pregnancy then with her.

The clothes thing is annoying. I wear a lot of stretchy pants right now.

I completely understand but I don't necessarily want the belly now because then I'll be even BIGGER than I was with my son! However, my pants are starting to not fit but I'm too small for maternity so it's definitely an awkward inbetween stage. Try and relax and enjoy it. I haven't even taken a single bump picture yet as I've been too sick. ugh.

I felt awkward too!! but mine did not last too long as I started rather quickly getting all the other fun symptoms like sciatica and tightening in my belly.  At first I felt so weird like I was in a stage where people would just think i was getting chubby and tired looking lol.
