Like when you need to run down a long hallway with a low ceiling.
Or they're casting munchikins in the Wizard of Oz.
Pregnancy however is not one of those times. When you're pregnant it really stinks to be short. What stinks even more is being pregnant and having large babies. I'm not looking forward to being mistaken as a circus act who ran away.
Here's a picture of me from a formal event I went to back in late November of 2007. I believe I'm about a week and a half into my pregnancy at this point. Keep in mind my husband took the picture and he's way taller than I am so it makes me look even shorter. I'm actually 5' 4.5" tall.
I'm a nice size 4. Comfortable and in decent shape. I did a lot of running this past summer, and I eat right... I feel good about my body image.
In one month I went from my nice size 4 to a size 14! I took these pictures just about an hour ago. Yes, I'm 11 weeks along, and I'm already wearing maternity pants.
It's shameful! No matter what I do I'm going to gain about 60 lbs with my pregnancy and I'll get so big around that most of the XL maternity clothes won't fit.
My lucky sister in law, who happens to be 6 ft tall, never purchased a single maternity clothing item. She was able to wear lowcut regular jeans and the fashionable empire waist tops. I only wish!
Please don't get the impression I am upset I'm pregnant. I'm very happy to be having a baby and what that will mean to my family. And I am totally willing to sacrifice my body and sleep to get there, and I am very happy that I have the ability to get pregnant and carry a baby. I know not every women is so lucky and would give anything to be in my shoes.
Some women love how they feel when they are pregnant.
They must all be tall.
