Stupid PAL brain

For some reason (PAL brain) I'm having a really hard time switiching from regular clothes to maternity clothes, not so much the pants it's more the shirts for some reason. I just have this fear that the day I actually decided to wear them something is going to happen. I know I would feel more comfortable but I keep thinking that then people would actually know I was pregnant instead of just getting fat, lol. Then if something happened, again, I'd feel like an idiot. UGH!

It's probably just me feeling nervous since I'm so close to when we lost Grey (2 more weeks). Hopefully once I get past that date I'll start feeling more confident.

sorry, I'm totally lol'ing at you not wearing maternity clothes... I have gained enough weight this past month that my pants had gotten tight, I was looking in my closet for some nice clothes for jury duty (4 days before my bfp) and I saw my maternity jeans... I pulled them out and wore them the whole week - they were so much better than my tight pants, then I found out I was pg, if my calculations are correct, I was 3w3d, I said to dh "yes, now I can wear these (showed the maternity jeans I was already wearing) and not feel bad about it" he said "hunny, I'm pretty sure you should be in maternity pants at like 3 months, not 3 weeks"... leave it to dh!!!

But I do feel you... I have pulled out all of my maternity clothes and washed them, I came across the shirt I was wearing the day Landon died, I put it back, I just don't think I can wear that one.

I'm sorry Becky. It's hard to get through those mental blocks. Maybe you can get by another week or so with your non-maternity shirts. Or, go to Walmart or somewhere cheap and get a couple shirts in a size larger if you don't want to look like you're wearing maternity. Sorry hun.

I did not have that problem. I had to wear mat clothes so fast, its all about the comfort girl.
Plus, you are pregnant!!! It really makes me feel sad that we are so afraid to embrace our pregnancies & you're worried about feeling like an idiot if god forbid something happened.
I kept my first losses secret from friends & I think it was the worst thing I could do. Sure some ppl dont give the support you need but some do. There is no reason for YOU to feel like an idiot.
Do what ya gotta do but please dont feel like an idiot!!

I think all of us can relate if it was not maturnity clothes than it was telling people or some other milestone that made it all public. ((((HUGS)))

I gave in and just wore them yesterday. OMG, I hate the pants! I spent all day pulling them up and then they fell down and then pulling them up and so on. I did feel a lot more comfortable. Yeah for that!
