Apparently something happened this week and I have shifted from "Is she pregnant or fat? I better just stare at her wild eyed and not comment since I can't really tell" to "Whoa she's pregnant. I better ask when she's due so if she goes into labor while I'm ringing her up I'll know what's going on." I don't know if it's because I finally caved and bought real maternity shirts or because holy crap I'm huge, but every day strangers have approached me to ask when I'm due.
I will admit that it's nice to finally know that people aren't looking and wondering if I've ever heard of the 30 Day Shred but at the same time it is very unsettling to have random people approach me to talk when I'm shopping at Target. Thankfully no one has gone for the stomach touch yet because seriously, friends only! And even letting friends do that took awhile for me to become comfortable with.
I think part of the reason that these questions and comments have caught me so off guard is because I am having a hard time seeing how big I'm getting. I mean, I know I'm big and I routinely walk around the house mooing at jparks, but knowing just how much I've grown week to week is a challenge. Thank god I don't wear pants with stretchy waistbands when I'm not pregnant because I would probably weigh 400 pounds and not even realize it.
Anyway, I'm tired since I skipped my nap today (woe is me) so let's just give the people want they want: evidence of my fatness
