Yipes! Sorry for not posting in almost a week! How inconsiderate of me.
I am now 18 weeks pregnant, which is two weeks away from being halfway through. Honestly, time has seemed to slow down considerably. Nothing is happening! Its the same everyday! I feel like I've been pregnant for a very long time, which is pretty unfortunate for me because I still have a long way to go.
However, the belly is growing. I know no one believes me. I know it doesn't seem like my belly is big, but to me it really is. I look kind of ridiculous, like an overgrown child. My skinny arms and legs stick out from my strangely round Buddha belly. And it really is like a Buddha belly, people rub it all the time. Possibly in hopes of good luck? At least strangers aren't doing it yet.
Yesterday when I was at work one of the preschool girls walked up to me and said "You look like you're having a baby!" She didn't know I am pregnant, so it was funny. Kids can get away with lots of things that would get most adults in trouble.
Further evidence that the belly continues to expand, I had some painful ligament stretching going on the last few days. The ligaments that hold up my uterus went into revolt as they were forced to hold up a bell pepper sized person. It was very painful and I whined alot. Apparently my ligaments respond to stress in the same way the rest of me does: Like a big fat baby who is spoiled rotten and will probably start to cry soon.
It's almost Thanksgiving! In honor of the holiday I plan on eating until it becomes embarassing for everyone around me.
