Baby Bump

I can no longer see my feet. As of this morning, in the shower I could no longer see to tidy my bikini line properly. At church today I heard such things as, "Whoa! You've popped!" and "No more hiding that bump any longer!". My own husband spied me and the bulging tummy in the bathroom as I blew dry my hair this morning. As I was already dressed he remarked, "Well, when you cinch in your dress with the belt like that, your belly looks really huge!" Awesome. I know. Thank you very much Husband of mine. I'm not even half way through this pregnancy, unless, unless, unless - by the grace of the Above, the babies will be sufficiently cooked and pop out a few weeks early... Have I mentioned I have all my fingers and toes crossed against the possibility of a c-section? My chances are 50/50 for the time being. I've been hearing stories of women prego with twins who carried the babes the full 40 weeks and the babies each weighed in at 8 lbs once birthed! This is frightening news to my ears, my knees, the skin of my belly and my nether regions.

Megan - How are you liking Iowa and the new house?

Dear Blog Friend Sam - I am so, so happy to hear from you again...

Kristene - I have my 20 week ultrasound next week Wednesday and I can't wait!!! I want to know the genders of the babes and find out how correct our little oracle of son might be. The genders will allow me to kick the painting, sewing and knitting into high gear. More to follow.

Keep me informed! I was sort of shocked by the pics...wow..........
But I guess that's to be expected...right?

Maggie May said...

Ali, honestly, I don't think you look that huge. Not that I know anything about getting pregnant...but seriously, you just look pregnant. Don't stress. Just think of all those Hugos runnin' around in several summers. Fun!

love, M

You are even more gorgeous pregnant! That belly always seems to pouch out faster the second time around-especially with TWO babies in there! I always think, what a miracle it is how your body can accommodate and grow a life. Incredible. Very excited to watch your journey. :)

Ali,
I've been meaning to write and congratulate you...Congratulations on your twins!! How exciting! You look fantastic for expecting twins...I usually look that big at that point and I've only ever had one at a time!

We just got home from our month in the USA where we had a wonderful visit with Maggie and Millie and her brood. It was too short, as always, but better than nothing!

Again, congratulations and best wishes for a safe and healthy pregnancy.
