Wow, You’re BIG. You Don’t Look Normal.

My Chicken has a way of going around with Chicken feet hanging out of her beak.

What she meant was “Wow, you really are pregnant. You don’t normally look like this.”
I love the Chicken and her blunders. It’s quite endearing. And after nine years, I get what she means even if it doesn’t quite come out the way she meant.
She’s thrilled with the tiny bump and is in awe of my changing body. She’s also already mourning the loss of my preggo tits and they’ve only just begun to grow.

So yes bloggers, I’ve apparently got a bit of a belly. But only at night really. In the morning it looks nothing like the belly I have at night.
So there are belly shots coming…but I take them all in the morning!

    Too funny! I can’t wait to see the photos, from this point forward you are going to grow exponentially every week. It is really amazing how fast you will see changes. As for the boobs, they may hang around longer if you decide to breastfeed, although it is more of a “look but don’t touch” situation or they will leak!

    I know exactly what you mean. At night it’s this purty and round and kind of firm belly, but then it relaxes to semi-normlacy overnight. Weird.

    How about taking your belly shots at night, just for fun? Would love to see! I know you’ll be cute as a bug.

    I was the same way until about 2 weeks ago. Now the belly is always there. Congrats on 2nd trimester, lady!

    great commentary from Chicken – just think it’s going to get bigger and better and she is going to have all kinds of things to say as you progress. Waiting on belly shots!

    Chicken is so sweet! I had to wear bigger pants at night. It is crazy how it would grow during the day.

    Hey Puffer, I’m just catching up on your last couple of weeks and was sorry to hear that telling the relatives didn’t go as planned. I know how frustrating that can be!
    Thanks for posting the great u/s pictures–so exciting!

    Can’t wait to see the belly shot. Pretty funny that you are only showing a little so far — I wonder when that will change.
