I’m Not (just) Fat, I’m Pregnant!

After trying for over four years to get pregnant, I wanted to announce it to the world.  I couldn’t wait to join the club of knowing looks, motherly-advice from strangers, and cute maternity fashions…[insert tire screech here].  The club does not exist! Cute maternity clothes?  For a plus-size gal?  As elusive as a unicorn…
