As I'm now in my third trimester, my belly has definitely been increasing in size at a rapid pace. I personally don't mind my belly getting big. It makes it feel all the more real to me. I like to think about my baby growing bigger too. That being said, I DO mind when I see the rest of me get bigger as well.
This pregnancy, I put on weight fast. I found out I was pregnant just before Thanksgiving.
We went to my in-laws for the big day, and needless to say, I didn't exercise much self-control. I also didn't exercise to make up for it. Then as we all know, around Christmas there is so much to do, and even more delicious stuff to eat. By the time the holiday season was over, I was already up 8 pounds. And I was only 12 weeks along.
