Now that I’ve had children (and I’m still in my “prime”) I’m super-conscious of “looking” pregnant.  When shopping for tops (and dresses) I always have to wonder, “Does this look like a maternity top?”  “Is there even the slightest chance that someone will wonder if I’m pregnant in this?”  I’m not kidding.  Maybe it has to do with that time I was asked if I was pregnant.  And I wasn’t.  At all.  In fact, I thought I was looking rather thin that day.  Anyway, the reason why I bring this up?

Either this picture makes me look pregnant or fat.  Yay.  Haha.
p.s. I’m not pregnant.  That bakery’s been closed.

    I love the coral and navy together. I also got once asked if I was pregnant when I was not. Another friend at the wedding was visibly (like 8 months) pregnant and yet they still asked me. The day sucked a bit more!

    I've learned to never ask. Especially when I still looked pregnant those first few months after having had a baby! It's got to be the worst thing in the world for a woman to be asked if she's pregnant/when she's due when she isn't!

  5. haha..I totally know what you mean…for the longest time after my daughter was born I belted everything to show that I had a waist (might be a side effect of not having one while preggo). I think it also has to do with the fact that women are always looking for signs that a friend could be knocked up…seriously people, stop being so nosey!
    And no you don't look pregnant at all…I was

    I love your outfit! perf! I am pregnant and I'm not showing yet so its weird because my clothes are tight in some areas and its difficult to buy new clothes because I am hoping to turn to my regular size after birth.. anyways..
