I've always heard about it: those months during pregnancy where your belly starts to puff out and clothes don't fit right, but you don't really have that "oh, she's pregnant" belly. I guess I'm in that stage right now, although (awesomeness!) I am still in my regular clothes at 4.5 months! I've gained 10 pounds, which is a little hard to accept when I really stop to think about it, but most of the time, MOST of the time, I think, "They call this the FAT stage????"
Dude, I've BEEN fat! This ain't it!
Seriously! Yeah, I have moments when I look down at this growing hump in my midsection and wonder where my flat stomach went, but my goodness! Maybe I would feel differently if I'd always had a thin figure. Maybe I'd be freaking out as the pounds crept on for the first time in my life. But that's not the case, and even at the point I am at right now, 4.5 months pregnant, I am still 50 pounds less than I was last April. PLUS there's a baby in there, so how can you be upset about that?
(The baby is starting to make itself known! I've been feeling little fluttery feelings for the last week or two, but this was the first week that I felt a tap-tap-tap low in my abdomen. Very cool! We will find out what we're having in two weeks, and I am sooo excited! Can't wait to know for sure!)
P.S. - that devil cat of ours is still here. Andy shampooed all the carpeting and she's been good about the litter box since. But, she's developed a weird thing where she'll growl and hiss at me whenever I come out of the bathroom, even if I was just brushing my teeth and not heading directly toward her. Maybe she's freaking out about the pregnancy? Not sure, because she's fine with me the rest of the time. I'm actually feeling a little guilty but I almost hope she screws up royally one last time -- I don't want to get rid of her but I really don't want her around either. We'll see...!
