Feeling frumpy ****updated with pic from wedding*****

Postby Lany » Tue Sep 02, 2014 2:08 am

[url][/url]I know I should be grateful and everything but today I am feeling a little sad and frumpy. So much of my weight seems to have gone to my thighs and but this time around. Why couldn't I be one of those women's that just have a cute little baby bump.

Trying to find a dress to wear to a wedding on the weekend and I just feel bleh :(

Please tell me I'm not alone!!

This is my third pregnancy and all 3 times the weight has increased in my butt first! And of course, my favorite, the saddle bags!!! Just kidding I hate them! I have started wearing maternity shorts and jeans, at 14 weeks!!! not because I was showing a belly bump but because my legs and butt were so uncomfortable!!! Just keep telling yourself the reward of it all is soooooo worth it and the weight will go away and you will return to your normal self (kind of normal that is)

I hate that feeling. I gain all over my from my belly button to mid thighs and I'm very short so it shows fast. I too wish I was smaller with a nice rounded bump. I love my bump like crazy but some days I just feel look I look horrible in everything.

Oh Lany, I'm sorry!
I've gained mostly in my middle (and chest) and I feel so trampy and frumpy every day. I have boobs that need a full coverage bra but every maternity top out there seems to be on the lower cut side...maybe all those smaller chested women love to show off their new cleavage? Not sure, but I go around showing off my bras everyday, all day. I got a couple of higher cut shirts...but can't wear them every single day, can I?

Good luck finding that dress- I wish I could help in some way- maybe something like a maxi dress- to hide that bottom away? I have this dress: http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.d ... =966648022 and it would be cute with a little jacket or scarf across your shoulders.

Thanks Jamiee, that is a very cute dress you have there. I am shopping as we speak! I was meant to be doing my glucose test right now but the stupid lady didn't book my appointment and then yelled at me for no reason. Needless to say I have to rebook but I will be doing so with a different provider. Need to get it done before my next on visit in a week

This reminds me to call my midwife about the glucose test. I saw a different one last time and she didn'T mention it. I want to be prepared to do it, not surprised when I show up, you know?

Good luck shopping!

Both are cute. I like the second one...I like the neckline better (I think I would feel claustrophobic in the neck of the first one). If it's not a windy beach, go with the shorter one. If it's windy, go with the first, so your tush doesn't wind up on display. :)

I think dress #2, too! But agree with leroux about the wind issue. If it's windy, I'd go with the longer one.

Thanks for the input ladies :) I have them both packed and I'll see what the weather is like. As long as I don't look like I'm part of the wild life (particularly a beached whale) I will be happy :) decided to get my hair and makeup done as well to help feel good :)

The second one! If you are going to be on the beach you don't want that long dress dragging on the ground, and if it's hot out the shorter one will keep you cooler, plus it's super pretty and looks very nice on you!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see which you choose!
