I'm away from home...living in Georgia for a couple weeks. So I have no idea how to take a picture and upload it to this blog from my iPhone...obviously I am not exactly tech savvy. Anyway....
I woke up this morning...got dressed...and FINALLY! My belly has a baby bump! I've looked bloated and ummm well extra chubby for the past 20 weeks. Most people were shocked when I would say I was pregnant...as if my lower abdominal pooch was always extra fluffy or something. It's been round and full...I assure you. It's possible these folks were being nice :-) So I've been in this limbo of looking not exactly pregnant...but being too round to wear normal clothes (since I was 6 weeks pregnant.)
So FINALLY! I was so excited! Elated in fact! I couldn't wait to tell Tommy that my BUMP was prominent enough to be noticed as a bump!! On all of my dozens of trips to the bathroom I would smile and admire my firm round belly.
Then, one of the pathologists I had just met asked me how far along I was...in front of a group of other male pathologists. I blushed, said 5 months...and mentally was excited that I look pregnant...hahaha. Until one of these other doctors let out a huge sigh of relief and said something along the lines of: I was wondering if she was preggo, but she is in that inbetween stage where it could be a beer belly or a baby.
I was bummed. I thought I was surely past the beer belly stage.
