Well, shit. This is embarrassing, but my Mom thought it was hysterical (thanks, Mom!), so I decided to share it with y’all as well.
First off, does this dress make me look fat?
…or for that matter, pregnant?
Yes, my boobs are already growing ridiculously fast.
Yes, I have a condition called a pre-existing beer belly.
But, c’mon, would you assume I was pregnant based on this picture?!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond thankful that I actually am pregnant, but my husband just didn’t get how that wasn’t my focus after the following comment was made to him by a fellow parishioner before Easter services started yesterday morning.
Wow, it must be really nice working near home again, especially with a baby on the way.
Remember, I am only 5w3d in this pic – and as I not-so-patiently explained to my husband yesterday, I am definitely not showing b/c of the 2mm big baby.
C just brushed it off with a stuttered, “um, what? oh, no. nope!”… which I’m sure made the guy who said the above statement incredibly confused and embarrassed, but really, I don’t even care. I’m just thankful I wasn’t standing there when the comment was made or I’d have probably burst into tears.
Seriously – pregnant?! I wouldn’t make the assumption is the woman was 40w and bursting!
Afterwards we went to my in-law’s house for Easter dinner where I successfully put myself into a food coma to feel better about my belly and stared at the damn snow that is falling once again…
On a serious note, I am beyond thankful that things seems to be progressing normally so far for me.
*My boobs still hurt so badly I feel like they’re going to explode, and they are definitely growing. My husband is amazing, though sad that he is NOT allowed to touch.
*I’m constantly hungry. I can’t eat much at once, but I feel like grazing all.day.long.
*I sleep for the majority of the day. Whenever possible, I am napping. 🙂
These are all good things.
On the bad, horrible, devastating side of things, my friend that I blogged about here
lost the baby last weekend. We weren’t sure at first, hence the TLC day
on Saturday, but her beta was down to 9 yesterday.
Please pray for her to have the strength to jump back on this painful TTC journey.
