I have always looked pregnant very early. With Emma, at 8 weeks, I had to tell my coworkers because it was getting obvious. And over the summer, I had a lady ask me how far along I was -- at FIVE weeks. And I do realize that our little baby is kidney bean sized right now, but my tummy is much bigger than that!
This is the conversation I had yesterday at the maternity store:
Lady: Oh, how far along are you?
Me: (embellishing) 8 weeks.
Lady's Pregnant Daughter: (sticking her head out of a dressing room) Oh, you are so little and cute and I'm so big!!! And I'm just 29 weeks.
Me: Oh, you look great! You are supposed to be getting bigger!
Lady's Pregnant Daughter: But look at you!
Me: I am only 8 weeks pregnant!
Lady's Pregnant Daughter: WHAT?!?!?!?! EIGHT WEEKS?!?!?! I thought you said eight months!!! Are you sure?
Me: Yup. Pretty sure about this.
Translation -- Being 8 months pregnant was feasible, but being only 8 weeks pregnant was jaw-dropping. ;) Really??
Now maybe you understand why I need maternity pants at 8 weeks!
