Honest post. I just had a complete meltdown. 😫

I am only 11 weeks pregnant today and I was just getting ready for lunch with my parents and none of my pants would button...which led to me literally being so angry but all I could do was fall to the floor and cry. I am finding myself comparing myself to everyone else at their 11 week mark and I feel like I shouldn’t already be too big to button my pants. I know comparison is a horrible, cruel, thief of joy, but I am human and it’s hard. I also know that I’m making a baby, and that is a beautiful miracle, but real talk...this part is hard for me. I don’t have a pregnant belly, just a bloated big belly that looks like I’ve been hitting the donuts too hard (and I’ve actually been eating really healthily) My fiancé..bless his heart has been so sweet and trying to comfort me but it’s just getting to me today. Has anyone else struggled with this?? I know I’m being dramatic, and my hormones are HOLY HELL..on another level, but it’s not fun having to wear yoga pants to lunch because nothing else fits. You know?? I feel like once I actually have a belly that looks like I’m pregnant it will be easier for me, and I’ll totally embrace it. However the in between...that’s what’s getting me. So proud of all of you, and love getting to see yalls posts and comments!! Sending so much love and kindness your way!! 🖤

I feel hideous and cannot convince myself otherwise. I hate seeing the teeny tiny maternity models in adds. Why not me!?! I know better than this but my rational self has seemingly disappeared.

I definitely couldn’t button my jeans at 11 weeks! Just put on a pair of leggings, take a deep breath, and remember you’re pregnant 🤰 of course you can’t button your pants! Sending ❤️

I can totally relate to how you're feeling. I couldn't fit into my jeans from 8 weeks. I was holding them together at the button with a hair bobble. It was so stressful because I'd agreed with myself that I wouldn't buy any maternity clothes until 12 weeks just in case anything happened. By 10 weeks even the hair bobble was no match for the bloat. I was living between 2 pairs of sweatpants. My husband helped me to realise that being comfortable and confident in what I was wearing was more important than planning for the worst case scenario. My first pair of maternity jeans were like a gift from heaven! It was just so nice to wear them!! Im 15 weeks now, I've not put on any weight (actually 2 pounds down thanks to nausea) yet but still can't fit into most of my pre-pregnancy wardrobe. I've got a basic maternity wardrobe now from h&m and ebay. There's not a single item I regret buying. I know it can feel too early to wear maternity but honestly, take the plunge. It really will make the world of difference x
