meet my belly.
this was taken this morning as i was getting ready for work. and no, it's not an optical illusion...i'm really that big.
you must be saying, by god! why is this poor girl still going to work?? she has to be due any day, and if not, atleast in the next week or two!
and that's when i laugh and tell you:
no, my friend. i still have another glorious 3 months to go! i'm not due until may
4th! how silly you are for thinking that i must be due so much sooner!!
but seriously, this is just stupid. i mean, come on. am i housing a freaking sumo wrestler in there? two nights ago, we had to go to best buy to get johnboy a new phone. while there, there was a woman who was wrangling a toddler and two school aged-children. she looked at me and asked the obligatory "when are you due" question. when i told her may 4th, she gave me the "oh my god" face and let me know that i was going to be HUGE by the end.
well, no shit, sherlock.
the sales associate tried to make me feel better by saying that looking straight on, she couldn't tell i was pregnant. but when i turned to the side, whoa!
i was really hoping that waddling would come to be my form of transportation much later in the pregnancy. i know i'm in the third trimester, but i was hoping i could hold off my penguin-like saunter until atleast mid march.
other momma's to be, or new moms, is it strange that i almost refuse to wear maternity clothes? i have 2 pair of maternity jeans that i wear, but i much prefer to wear my regular jeans...and as for tops, i have like one maternity t-shirt and a couple of tanks, but everything else that i wear is just my normal clothing...just tighter than it used to be.
oh well. it works.
EDITED TO ADD:
aaaah!!! they sell ugly dolls at melody's choices!!!!! do you know how excited i am about this!? yay!!!
