I am pregnant.

I know.  You’ve known this for a while.  And so have I…but here’s the thing.  Friday P and I were at Hom.egoo.ds and he had to use the bathroom (I swear, he uses it as often as I do these days. However, his needs stems from a newfound infatuation with potties (thank you, newly potty-trained son)  soap dispensers and the ever popular debate “Handdryer v papertowel”…though he calls handdryer machines “leafblowers.”)  Digression over.  Anyhow.  There is a semi-full length mirror in this particular bathroom…and I saw my profile for a second.  And I saw that I was pregnant.  Really, truly, no-one-mistakes-me-for-a-bloated-person pregnant.  (I get that this seems silly.  I have looked pregnant for quite a while, and every day do see my person when I get dressed.  But there was something about that moment, about the angle, about…something…) I just stopped and stared at that person for a few seconds…because I remember so vividly the days/weeks/months/years I was convinced I wasn’t going to see that again.  And it was so strange…to be like, yup, there I am…pregnant.  A little boy will be coming around sometime in the next 7 weeks or so.  And he’s in there.  Growing, elbowing, smashing, pressing, contorting…getting ready to come and join our crazy family…

  1. I am so in love with the mirror and have been for the last few months. Its amazing to see our bellies grow and know we have our little guys in there and they will join our crazy familes soon. For us we waited 12 years and let me tell you when people ask when are you do I get excited every time. Thinking of you and so so so happy for you girl. xoxo

  3. I am 22 weeks with twins and still think I look bloated sometimes. Am I on crack? Do other people see me this way? I’m glad I’m not the only one who sometimes gasps when she catches sight of her pregnant belly :)
