I'm at that stage where I don't quite look pregnant but most definitely "feel" bigger than normal. My regular jeans are tight and the maternity pants are a little big bit lots more comfortable than my regular jeans!! I invested in a "be band" where I can still wear my regular pants, I just unbutton the top button.
I got to see a sweet friend this weekend who is due a few days before me. I am so blessed to share this time with her and talk to some one who is going through the same thing I am. We both just feel "fat", but understand there is a baby growing inside of us and are elated at the thought of that. We are ready to both feel and look pregnant.
