Belly Belly Belly

There are three types of preggo bellies. Some pregnant women look like they just ate a big meal, all the way until 40 weeks. The second type look like they're smuggling a small ball under their shirts. And then there are some women who have bellies that actually look like a baby could fit in their bellies. I fall under the 3rd category! And while I thought most women did also and that the 1st two categories were few and far between, apparently I was wrong. Seems like every pregnant woman I know is much smaller than me!

And the general public seems to think so too! I'm to the point where I get asked if I'm due any day now. Unfortunately I've been asked that for the last 4 weeks too. I've had to explain that no, I have a good two months or a month and a half, or a month left! 2 weeks ago I was even asked if I was overdue! I'm convinced that the average person doesn't know what the average 9 month pregnant woman looks like!! At least that's what I tell myself to make myself feel better! Thankfully my good friend Rebecca also had a significant belly and was only a few weeks ahead of me. So we got to endure the comments and wide-eyed looks together! We're just convinced we have more intestines than other women.

Actually I love having a big belly. It makes picturing a real baby in there much easier and it gives me more to rub! =D Really the only downside is trying to find shirts that cover the whole belly and not just part way down. Cuz it's no fun having a breeze make your belly cold!

yup, there's definitely a baby in there! I love how you could really see the progression, it was a much better effect than just still pictures next to each other :) Can't wait to meet her!
