Just a few pictures

19 weeks I must have just eaten because I look way bigger here than I do a week later.

Bad picture but Jarrod was in it so I had to put it up. (20wks. half way there!)

Do the clothes make the man (or woman)??

Well, maybe not completely, but they sure do help! I finally broke down and bought some maternity clothes. I came to two conclusions. 1) I absolutely love maternity shirts. The actually make your tummy cute and are cut to compliment your growing...uh hmm...assets =). 2) I completely HATE maternity pants. Yes, they fit better than normal pants and give you some extra room in the pregnancy belly but lets be honest, they just aren't that cute.
So, today I had on my new maternity clothes and I was helping a customer and the lady asked if I had kids. I told her not yet but I was due in October. She was shocked and said I quote: "You don't look pregnant." I almost hugged her! Now, for the record I'm enjoying being pregnant and I don't even mind looking a bit prego but I was still a little traumatized from last weeks comment from that horrible horrible lady asking me if I was expecting twins. Needless to say, I'm loving my new clothes!
I've been scolded for not having enough pictures on here. I'll do what I can to get some more up...if your lucky I'll model the new wardrobe =)

Say what?

So, I just have to get it off my chest. Today at work I was helping a lady at my desk. "So when's your baby due?" she asks me. At first this caught me off guard because this was the first time that a stranger had commented on my pregnancy without me saying anything (assuming I was pregnant by looking at me.) So I replied to her and told her October. "Oh," she says "are you having just one baby, because your getting pret...." she cut her sentence short, but I knew what the end of the sentence was:...pretty big. "Nope, just one." was all I could say. "Well, it must be that your just smaller, that's why your really showing." I knew she was just trying to cover up what she had just done to a pregnant woman and her fear of being as fat as a bus.
Now, who in their right mind would say that to someone. That might almost be as bad as asking someone how far along they are when they aren't even pregnant. I'm really trying not to let it get to me. I mean, 2 weeks ago I had people telling me that I didn't even look pregnant, and now I'm having twins?!? Surely I haven't grown that much in 14 days. Well, I googled "17 week pregnant belly photos" and I'm either the same size or smaller than most of those photos. So either, this lady was crazy or she didn't do the math in her head to realize how far along I was....or at least that's what I'm telling myself.
On another note, I'm pretty sure I felt the baby move. But that will be for another day, it's time for a walk =)
