I'm with everyone on the body insecurity. This being my third I thought I knew what was going to happen. I didn't start showing with either of my kids until about 6 months (DD) and around 5 months (DS) and it wasn't a slow gradual build it was like once second there really wasn't anything then hello bump! And it was pretty obvious that it was a pregnancy bump. This time I started showing a lot earlier (like around 2 months I noticed a difference) which makes sense with this being my third but since it started earlier on it just started to look like I had put on weight. I've always been on the skinnier side so looking like I put on weight really made me self conscious. All of my co-workers and family obviously knew what was going on but being out in public I felt uncomfortable. While I still fit into all of my normal clothing I still don't feel comfortable. Glad to know I'm not alone and not just being terribly vain about feeling uncomfortable with my body image.
@sarahhedger7 I never actually "picked" a pediatrician the first time around, I hadn't even thought about it as a FTM so I went with the office the hospital recommended which is about 10 minutes from my house (the hospital itself is about 30 minutes from my house) so unfortunately I'm not a big source of information on interviewing pediatricians. I do know that if you don't like the office you can always change it so I wasn't too concerned with the first appointment because I knew that if I didn't like them I could always go with another office. I was very lucky and I love all the drs at this practice and their scheduling is great, they have later days so working moms can make appointments for after they're done with work.
@chasingroygbiv all the walls in our bouse are true white. I think once you get decor in there and have furniture, it doesn’t feel like a padded room or unfinished or anything. I think, given the theme of your room, you’re going to really appreciate those white walls so everything still feels pulled together and not messy.
