- I am 7 months pregnant. My belly didn't start showing until the end of my sixth month. It isn't that large now... people can't believe I am 7 months... most people think that I am like 5 months or so. I started off wearing like a 3/4 or 5/6 and now I wear 7/8 or some 9/10-- depends on the brand. (My seventh month is when I've really started to bloom!) I wanted to "Bloom" earlier, too, because I think pregnant women are the cutest people... but I am happy with the rate I am going now that I am getting larger.
- Now, my friend who is a little larger than me to start with (size 9/10) has been in maternity clothes since 4 months. Her reason: she does no exercise and eats fast food and junk food 24-7!! She was in my wedding when she was 6 months and we had to order her a dress (size 24W) for the wedding. And ever since her seventh month she has had trouble with being able to walk-- she would stand up for like 10-15 minutes and her feet and hands would "go to sleep" ~ completely numb and she would have to sit right back down... she is barely able to do anything!
- So, please be careful and don't wish on yourself to "bloom" too fast or too much!
