The last few months have incited a lot of change for us. For those that don't know, I am 5 months pregnant and apparently I finally look pregnant instead of just gaining weight or sporting a "bloated belly" as I have heard it described. Of course, I love the comments that, "Hey, pregnancy looks good on you!" What pregnant woman doesn't like to hear that? And I have a wonderful husband who constantly reminds me how beautiful he finds me.
It has been funny to watch people's behavior though. At work people walk by me and as they say hello their eyes go from my face to my belly back to my face, unsure if they should say anything. And at church people are still wary of saying anything in case they are wrong. The last few weeks I have begun to understand what women feel when they are prego. I feel like suddenly my abs disappeared one day and I have a hard time getting out of the sofa, and I'm not even that big, or at the end of my work day my tail bone hurts, sleeping is getting to be a challenge, and I'm in the lovely transitionary period where most maternity clothes are still a little too big, but my regular clothes are getting too small. However, despite all of these new things, we are simply blessed that this baby is growing healthy and strong.
