As you all can tell from the pics that I posted I am finally starting to look like i have a baby belly. Well, I guess it would have helped had you seen a before pic, but I can't find any that include my belly. But take my word for it, my belly has definitely grown! Now the rest of me has not changed and for that I am thankful. Though being thankful for the abundance of thighs and hips that I have seems wrong, at least I have not added to them. My face looks fuller, but only when I am swollen. I have a fat face anyway. Even when I was thin, and yes, there was a time that I was.....even if it was in a previous like.....I still had a round face. Just less round. And fewer chins.
Last night at church a woman asked me how much longer I had till my due date. A skinny woman. You know where this is going. When I told her 7 weeks she said "Wow! You don't even look pregnant." Her daughter says "MOM!!!!" all embarrassed. The woman goes on to say that by the 8th month most women "pop" and that I really haven't. I informed her that I had indeed "popped" but that when I sat down all of the fat redistributed itself and I look less pregnant. Her daughter snickered at her mother's discomfort. The mother tried to fix it by telling me what she meant was I looked great and that is what she meant. She might as well have skipped the whole conversation and just said that I looked fat, not pregnant. LOL
Really, I was not mad at her. She is a sweet woman and meant well. Though I will admit it made me very self conscious about my belly. More so than usual. I try to wear tops that blouse out a but when I sit down so as to hide the dent in my belly, but this top was new and I didn't check it before I put it on. Now I know better. Maybe I should just go to a maternity store and "borrow" one of their foam bumps for the next month!!! ;-)
