I look pregnant not fat!!!

So today was a good day, once I figured out what was happening...

I met a friend of mine for breakfast this morning and I ordered a hot chocolate.  The waiter looked at me and said, "Do you crave hot chocolate a lot?"  Puzzled I responded, "No."  Then I was walking away from my afternoon meeting and this lady was just staring at me.  I felt even more awkward once I noticed she was also following me.  But as I approached my car I look over to make sure she was not going to jump me, and she had the biggest smile on her face.  I was like, weirdo!  Then I went to a walk through at a local venue and the lady at the cafe offered me a free snack.  She looked at me funny and said, "Well, you must be hungry." I can't explain to you what I was feeling, but it was one of those things that I seriously thought the stars were out of alignment or something.  Their faces are etched in my brain because they just struck me as off.  It wasn't until I went to Paradise Bakery and saw a former student of mine that I realized what was happening with these weirdo woman.  She looked at me and said, "So Amanda was right, you are having a baby."  That was when it dawned on my stupid baby brain.  I look pregnant!!!  Yay!!  My joy was even more complete when I saw our friends Karen and Bill at dinner and the first words out of their mouth was that I had a little belly.  And I believe Karen said I looked really good and fat.  I think that was a compliment...  Then I went to my mom's house after dinner and both of my sister's, including my sister's husband's Mike, were over and they all said I was looking good and pregnant.  I just had to take a moment and sigh.  I think the really awkward days are over.  I finally look more pregnant than fat.  Smile!!!  And since my husband is not home (surprise, surprise) I had to take a picture myself.  Note:  I was wearing a much cuter dress today than the pj's in the picture.  But I had to share.  Today was a big day.

That's about as big as I am, but people don't even notice! You look so cute Jenni. I look forward to sharing more of the milestones and changes with you. :0)

Cute belly. It is SO fun when everyone can tell you are pregnant. You will get random strangers wishing you well and wanting to rub your belly. It's like everyone knows there is new life and new hope with each pregnant belly.

Take it all in cause after baby Thye gets here no one will ever pay attention to you ever again! It will always be about the baby. (I know that's how it's supposed to be be, but it is kind of depressing sometimes)

Hooray! Love it!

YAY! You're growing! It's great now that you are past the "fat" stage. Now people will give you good looks when you eat rather than the "she should cut back on all that food" looks.

I love following your blog!

Thanks ladies. I actually took that picture myself too. I am going to post some with my clothes on though so you can see the little pooch. I was wearing this shirt the other day that had a buddha symbol and it was right on my belly. That was really fun because even more people noticed. I guess when you put things on your belly people don't think, "Is she, or isn't she??"
