6 Week Countdown: things start getting ridiculous

The other day my nephew came up and slapped my belly and laughed hysterically and when I asked him "what's in there?" he said "a ball!" and thought it was really funny that I was hiding a big ball under my shirt!
And a tip for myself, and possibly other pregnant women, do not shop for clothing in the last 2 months of your pregnancy. You don't make good choices. You buy things because "oh, it's only $6! and it should cover my belly for a few more weeks! And since it's not maternity, I could wear it easily for a couple months after the baby is born!" Then you show it to your 4 year old to get her fashion stamp of approval. That $6 would have been better spent on lunch at Chic-Fil-A. Luckily I had a moment of clarity when I put it on this morning and it's going in the DI box. (but I had to take a picture of myself to laugh at first)

I'm not sure I should tell you this because it's kind of embarrassing, but whoever took those pictures cut off a teeny bit of your head.

Funny post.

Ha! Yes, it is interresting that while ordinarily, I wouldn't want a picture of anything BUT my face out there, when pregnant, I don't want to put my face in the pictures! hmmm...

I thought the patchwork shirt was cute, and when I saw the picture before I read your words I thought she is adorable...look at those thin arms, and cute clothes! You are darling...even when you're pregnant!

Ya I like that shirt too... if I wasn't about to pop I'd have you send it here instead of DI! You look way good by the way.

You're darling. If you were wearing a burlap sack, you'd be adorable. I can't wait to meet Baby Charlie!
