Pregnancy Perk #3

As previously mentioned, I'm a squishy type girl.  This is something I have been self-conscious about most of my life.  I've been working on it slowly but surely.  Then I was blessed with pregnancy, and i am no longer working on it.  And yet, there is something really cool going on.  You see, I am showing freakishly early.  Yes, I am aware that it could be bloat, or water weight.  Whatever it is, I look pregnant.  Normally, squishy girls take longer to show, and for some strange reason, that's not the case with me.

I've always been the type to kind of avoid looking in the mirror when I get out of the shower.  I wasn't happy with what I saw, so I just didn't look.  The other day, I decided to take a glance, and this is what I found:  I felt beautiful.  Here I am, looking larger than I ever have in my life, and yet, I feel pretty.  Right now, it's not some horrible thing that I need to try to get rid of.  It's something that I have wanted for months.  Well, years really.  I just knew I needed to get married first.  Sunday is Mother's Day, and though I haven't yet met my baby, I am a Mom!  I am a mom, with a beautiful pregnant looking body.  Pretty much life is rockin' my knee-highs!

This post made me so happy! Maybe you're showing so soon 'cause your baby is sitting right out front! That's how Berick was! I'm glad you feel beautiful 'cause the rest of us already knew it! I agree with the previous comment though that you should start putting up the belly pics!

This is totally unrelated to your post and totally related to your comment: I can see where you wouldn't get into it. I think I was in a super schmultzy mood so it hit me a little harder (in case you couldn't tell from my post), and so ... yeah. But I think if they would've made it longer and more in depth (as far as relationships go, not the controlling political parts), I probably would've loved it that much more. I dunno. :) But that's funny that ... Hod? Um... this is awkward... Your hubby :) likes it :) Miss you! I hear you're in my mom's RS, so I'm probably going to have to visit... unless you're moving out soon... which would suck.
