6 months pregnant

I have had 3 people so far ask me if I was due any day now.

Sadly, no.

3 more months to go and yes I'm concerned about my stomach being any much bigger than it already is. But that is inevitable...so I'm in trouble.

I am well aware that I am bigger than normal- but it wasn't so pleasant when my father in law saw me for the first time this pregnancy and said, "wow...I just met this petite girl who only gained 11 lbs her whole pregnancy" Not exactly what I wanted to hear...especially since I'm pretty sure I gained 11 lbs the first week I found out I was pregnant...

This is a time in my life where randomly seeing an old boyfriend from college at the mall would be most inappropriate. I would run and hide and tell Chay to call me by some other name like Rebecca or something.

so yes three months to go...I am doing all I can to get things done around the house before the whole world stops for a newborn. And trust me, my whole world stops.

Since most of you don't see me ever...here is a picture. I figure it better be a picture where I look somewhat better than I normally do...my usual attire is Chay's big T-shirts and Chay's basketball shorts. Sundays are always a good day for picture taking.

6 months and counting...

ok - so you totally look great!!! You're so slender that you just have a cute little basketball belly. Don't people say the dumbest things to pregnant people? Why in the world do people think it's okay to comment to pregnant women on their size... that's what I can't figure out. We wouldn't just go up to anyone at church and comment on how large they are getting. sigh.... you do look great! You can make it!!!

You look so unbelievably cute! You have nothing on me! I'm afraid to know what your father-in-law would have said to me if he'd seen me at 6 months pregnant! I agree with Heather! People say the DUMBEST things to me when I'm pregnant. I blogged about it.... and there's not much you can do about it, unfortunately. I could never come up with a good response to put them in their place! Maybe you'll think of something! ;)
Seriously you look so awesome April! hang in there!

You DO look great! I don't think you look that big at all!!! Just a little basketball in your belly! :) Yes, get everything done you can now! I can't believe that taylor is already 2 months old! I feel like I have been holed up in the house for a while now, and am so excited for summer to actually get out of this house! :) Anyway, you look great! Only a few more months to go! :)

I use to get rude comments on my twin prego. It's really nobody's business if your prego, short, tiny, small, etc. Come up with a sassy reply!

Cami said...

Even in Chay's big shirts and basketball shorts, you still have that glow, and I think you look great!

Marne said...

I always wanted a basketball belly. My belly never pokes out like that, I gain weight all over so I just look plain fat, not pregnant. Kind of annoying. You do look great!

Tami said...

I swear that people do feel like they have to reply - and leave it to my dad to say something like that! So sorry! I've had people ask if I was having twins - yeah I wanted to smack the person right there. We all carry so different that it is so hard for me to hear how small everyone is when I feel so large. I think you do have a cute round little basketball. Hang in there and try not to let people's rude comments get you down. I'm going through the whole "Oh you're pregnant, I know someone that had....blah blah blah problem" they all tell me there horror stories. AND WHY!!!! So hang in there!

Your bump is so cute. Be proud of it! I'm sure that if I am pregnant again that I will be a monstronsity but I'll be proud of it. Its the end result I'm most interested in (a cute little one). Hope the next 3 months sail by so we can meet mini-Chay :) I'm sure he will have a big smile that will melt all of our hearts.

Way to go April - it's so fun to see you pregnant. I sometimes forget because I haven't seen you in a while. People do say the dumbest thing. But what about the touching? I just hate it when they touch me (unless they ask and I give them permission). The belly is off limits - once a guy patted my stomach at church. Yuck!

Hang in there, we all look forward to meeting Chay Jr.
