I am now 13 weeks pregnant and am in that weird phase where my clothes don’t really fit, but I’m too small for maternity pants. I don’t quite look pregnant yet. Instead I just look like I have a big extra around my tummy.
Which is making me feel a bit frumpy.
Now, if you saw the pictures I posted of myself in my week 13 update I know you’ll read this and think, she’s just crazy. Because, yes, I am slim. But I’ve always believed it’s way way way more important to pay attention to how you feel, rather than how you look. And this morning while dressing for work, I felt frumpy.
I also think it’s really important to not dwell on these feelings of insecurity. Instead I stored away those pants that no longer fit and slipped on a fab skirt (with an elastic waistband – yes!), untucked my shirt, and reminded myself that I’m growing a baby.
And that my body is so fucking amazing.
