Slowly but surely

I’ve found that the two most common questions asked of pregnant women are “How are you feeling?” and “How far along are you?” To the first, I have been able to respond... great! I have been blessed with an uneventful pregnancy (so far) and haven’t had to deal with any of the more uncomfortable aspects of the beginning of pregnancy (morning sickness, food aversions, etc.) To the second question, I always respond in weeks (which seems to be the common method of keeping track of time in pregnancy) and am usually met with the response, “Really? You don’t look like you are that far along!” What do you say to that? Anyway, I know it won’t last...

I helped throw a shower for my friend Alisha (she is due May 26th) and was convinced to take this picture for posterity. My friend Nicole, who took the picture, laughed as she was taking it and told me to stick out my belly more! That was two weeks ago... I haven’t taken another picture yet, but trust me when I say that I am definitely showing more now! Perhaps I will take another picture soon to show my progress... the biggest problem now is finding clothes to wear! (I went to Destination Maternity a few days ago in search of inexpensive maternity clothes. The full story will have to wait for another blog entry, but for now suffice it to say that I had the only male sales attendant in the store wait on me...I ended up taking about 20 items into the dressing room and only picked out 2 of them myself! Not the most successful shopping experience I’ve ever had...)
