Is she or isn't she?

The dreaded don't ever say "Congratulations" to a woman unless she tells you she is pregnant first!

It's even harder to know during the early stages when let's face it, you just look bloated, or like me you came into this game an "overachiever".  I mean really, I was trying to get a head start by having my fat stores for breast feeding already in place :)

Admittedly, when you are already a little fluffy particularly being poochalicious in the belly region you hope that someday you might actually look pregnant and not a bigger version of yourself.  But you secretly harbor insecurity and let's face it as women, our weight seems to be popular discourse for public conversation and I have noticed almost more so during pregnancy.  Poor Jessica Simpson!  She was tore up in the media and I thought she was adorable.  Rock on girl friend for not hiding away.  I hope I look half that cute, minus the heels.

But we all can't wait to "show",  to have some physical evidence (other than the gray shade to our face and bags under our eyes from nausea and not sleeping well) of the alien that has taken up residence inside of us.

Needless to say when I got dressed this morning I was excited to look in the mirror and realize that it kind of (look really hard) looks like a baby bump!!!  I am so excited.  So, since everyone has been asking for pics I thought I would share.  I made my friend that was with me at my work meeting take this pic before we went in.  Thanks, Marti!!!

Viola, the baby bump has arrived!  :)


  1. Gah I love it!!! I was just going to ask about one. You look beautiful! And not nauseated, which is also good. ;P Yay!!!! I can't wait for this behbeh to get here!!!!

  2. I was still wearing regular pants (albeit a larger size) until 24 weeks, so I know what it's like to be looking like you've eaten too many donuts for breakfast instead of actually pregnant. It's a very awkward time for maternity clothes too, as most are designed to flatter a larger bump, but regular shirts are too short and regular pants don't fit right at the waist. Bleh. Long camisoles and belly bands are your friends. I'm glad you're starting to feel better--hopefully you'll have a bit more energy soon. I'm so excited for you!
