I'm just assuming I'm 3 weeks. My last period was December 9th but my cycles are alot longer, I get my period every 40ish days. I took my first early home pregnancy test a week and a day ago and it had a faint pink line. Since then I've taken two more and each time the pregnancy line has gotten darker. I'm not really telling anyone, just in case something happens.
Thank you. I elected to not wear one after all. I do look puffy and boated. I wish there was a girdle for my face, people have been comenting on my cheeks. lol.
I read somewhere that i shouldn't wear one because the baby is stretching and there needs to be room. But there are some type of maternity girdles but those arent worn till I'm comfortable with myself.
I'm not really feeling much of anything just irritable and most foods don't make me want it. But, I don't get all queasy or anything like that. With my first pregnancy (daughter 5 years old now) I felt all those symptoms, I was sick of everything. If my body wasnt craving it it was coming out.
Please do not wear a girdle while you are pregnant! A lot of people say it was not the cause of this and it is not my fault, but i do believe so. I was 19 and pregnant with my second child. I was embarassed and ashamed and tried to hide my pregnancy with a girdle up until i was 4 and a half months pregnant. My son was born with one of his hands webbed like and grew short stubs for fingers on that hand. The other hand was developed perfect as well as everything else. I have 2 other children who are perfectly fine which i never wore a girdle.
I can not help but to think and blame myself for his development.
Anyone thinking of or wearing a girdle i wouldnt chance it...
I wear one at work cause im on my feet all day long my doctor said it was fine until I get big then I should wear a baby support band. People generally think its bad because they think it will "smoosh" your baby which is not true its the same with sleeping on your tummy
