A Burgeoning Bulge

So I was standing in front of our stove making dinner a few nights ago, and caught my reflection in the kitchen window out of the corner of my eye. Brandon probably thought I cut or burnt myself when I ran into the tv room screaming! I discovered that I am starting to form a bit of a pot belly. I haven't really noticed any of these "changes" so far, because I'll admit, I'm not in tip top shape in the first place. There's been a bit of a belly there for the past few years, and really I thought that the belly I will form over the next 6 months would be very VERY gradual. It's all of a sudden just popped out a bit, and gotten tighter, and it's kinda hard to get used to.

I know, I know... What did I expect right? I knew it would happen, don't get me wrong, it's just another adjustment that will take a bit of time. I've actually moved on from the "Oh my Gosh!!!" stage, into the "This is kinda neat.." stage, and hopefully I will soon hit somesort of "I like having a shelf to eat off of in bed!" stage.

We have another doctor's appointment on Thursday(14 week mark). They want to make sure that I'm maintaining my weight, and hopefully gaining a little. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Just wait until you make the big "pop" from pleasantly pregnant to obnoxiously large. Its a doozy.

Hi there, "Preggo." I just received your e-mail about you & Brandon expecting a few days ago. I bought a new computer & with it came AOL, so I've been taking advantage of it. I've also been a bit lazy about getting my previous e-mail account icon on this new computer so I can access it. Well, hello...duh, I found out I can actually access my old e-mail account via the internet. It doesn't take a 6 yr. degree to figure this out. Anyway, I'm so excited for you both. Don't worry about the murals. Those can wait for whenever you feel up to it. And, you think your bulge came quickly this time? You just wait until your 2nd, 3rd, or maybe 4th child...YIKES! Have Brandon kiss your belly for me (Oh, stop... nothing kinky...just a sweet "Hello" kiss). I love you both! Love, Holly
