I'm NOT going crazy

People keep telling me that my belly really isn't THAT big. They are all crazy. I am huge! I can barely reach my feet (I'm wearing sandals today so that I don't have to attempt to tie shoes) and my maternity clothes are already feeling quite snug and I still have 48 days to go! (Wow, when that doesn't seem like very long all of a sudden.) Anyway, I just want you all to know that I'm not going crazy. I measured my "waist" (let's be honest, you don't get to have a waist when your pregnant) about 2 weeks before Tyler was born. It was 38 inches. I'm already at 41 1/2 inches! I shudder to think of the stretch marks that await me. The really unfortunate news (for me) is that the baby is about to go through a growth spurt getting all fat and cute before it comes out. Good news for the baby, bad news for my skin. Maybe I should cut back on the chocolate cake and stick to fruits and vegetables. That would probably help with the weight gain too :-)

Jim said he doesn't think it looks so big! I think it's adorable! Can't wait to see you guys!

Yeah, but where is the fun in cutting out chocolate, cookies, ice cream, and cake? Granted I haven't seen "the belly" in person, but if it really means that babe is going to come out all cute and fat, it's TOTALLY worth it!
