I want you to know that this post almost didn’t happen after I got a good look at my belly. But what the heck.
This is me at 15 and a half weeks:
Next time I won’t crop out my face, but I’ll also make sure I don’t look insane.
Side story: I have a friend who had a baby boy in July 2009. We work together and I was really excited when she got pregnant. She’s one of the nicest people I know, she’s really smart, and she’s beautiful. I’d hate her if she just wasn’t so dang nice! Another reason I would hate her if I could is because she has no tummy, no pouch, nothing. Her stomach is CONCAVE. That should be reason enough alone to shoot darts out of my eyes at her when she’s not looking. So when she got pregnant, it actually took a while for her to show. One day she came over to my cubicle all excited and was all, “Look! I’m showing a little! I just have to sit down and see how my tummy has a little pouch now?!” I laughed and laughed and laughed, and when I could finally catch a breath, I said, “Honey, that’s called NORMAL. If that’s your pregnancy showing, then I’m pregnant too.”
I still laugh over that because she was so freaking adorable about it. And yes, her stomach is back to concave.
Nothing really new to tell you about this pregnancy. It’s about as symptom free as they come. I’m at 17 weeks now (almost half way there), and I haven’t started to feel the baby yet. I think that’s just cause I don’t know what it feels like. I don’t really have any cravings, and while I look like I’m showing a bit in the picture, the little pregnancy belly I have could easily be mistaken for a muffin top. I thought I gave up awkward body images when I got out of high school, but I guess not.
