Only 20 km in diameter!

Y'all are so sweet about my belly, thank you. Yeah, I know I'm not freakishly huge for 26 weeks or anything, but I'm a lot bigger than I was with Mia at this point so I feel like the belly is just getting out of control way too soon. Of course, it doesn't help that when I observe to some people that I feel like I am roughly the size of a neutron star and that I can no longer tie my own shoes without nearly passing out because bending over that far causes the Monster Fetus to smash into my lungs thereby cutting off my air supply, well, at those times some people tend to just say "yeah, you are getting pretty big" which, while technically accurate, is not exactly what someone as increasingly rotund as myself is dying to hear. Why can't people just learn to lie? Lying is an underrated virtue, I tell you. I mean, an appropriate reply to that observation would be "No, my darling, not in the least. Why, if I didn't know for a fact I wouldn't be entirely sure that you even were pregnant. Additionally, it is only the fact that you are currently cradling your beloved and innocent daughter in your svelte and toned arms that is preventing me from coming over there and ravishing you right now." I mean really, would that be so hard?

On an unrelated note, if you are ever so foolish as to casually observe to your husband that, with a few stretches notable exception, your kid has been basically sleeping like a champ for six months now, you should be prepared to be up all night with a whining toddler. Make a note of it.

Unspoken rule in our house. Never ever ever speak of how good someone is sleeping or how well behaved they have been.

Hey, have you lost some weight?

::: blink :::

I've never seen your hair look so shiny and lustrious...you deserve a night out with the girls.

Tuesday's rule applies in my home as well.

So, the Firemen's coalition called? And they'd really like you to pose for their 2008 MILF Calende. With a bunch of really sexy firemen, of course.
David seems to have the drill down pat...and you'd think most of the time Chris would too...but it's good that he's not always as sweet as he sometimes seems, because then he wouldn't be real :P And real men are far preferable to androids. Or something. My point - Chris is a good guy, if slightly dumb male sometimes, but instead of making us single girls feel like it's hopeless to ever nab such a catch, he reminds us that the normal guys really can be that sweet. I don't know if that makes any sense at all, but I just waxed poetic on your husband, which is kind of weird, so I'm going to shut up now :P

Why doesn't that work the other way? Why can't I be like, "D. is sleeping like shit!" and then have her sleep through the night?

You look great!
I never got any nice comments when I was pregnant. I just got, "How many babies are in there?" "Wow you're HUGE!" etc. etc.

26 weeks? You look great from what I could see in the earlier picture.

I should be grandma again by this time tomorrow!!

If I ever have a husband, the first thing out of my mouth will be, "Holy Shit, I'm Gay!! When did this happen?!?!" Followed by, "We have a TODDLER?!?!? WTF!?!?!?!"

When I was near the end of my second pregnanancy, my younger brother showed up with a buddy one day on his way home from work. His only purpose for dropping buy? To show his buddy what a house I'd turned into. So what if I was 37 weeks with twins, the humiliation is the same.

What is it about pregnancy number 2? I felt like I exploded the second time around. I had to resort to maternity wear at only 10 weeks, as opposed to about 18 or 20 weeks the first time around. You should have heard me, standing in my bedroom at 10 weeks, whining at the top of my lungs when I couldn't get my pants to button - WTF?????

The good news in all this? I was back in my pre-pregnancy jeans at 10 days post-partum! There's hope for you yet!!!!

*grin*

Why, if I didn't know for a fact I wouldn't be entirely sure that you even were pregnant. Additionally, it is only the fact that you are currently cradling your beloved and innocent daughter in your svelte and toned arms that is preventing me from coming over there and ravishing you right now.

"No, my darling, not in the least. Why, if I didn't know for a fact I wouldn't be entirely sure that you even were pregnant. Additionally, it is only the fact that you are currently cradling your beloved and innocent daughter in your svelte and toned arms that is preventing me from coming over there and ravishing you right now."

So noted.

hmmm, it seems as if I have taken that mental note before. You are so svelte and uhm, okay my 2 year old is screaming the thought was lost.

Wait till you are 28 weeks! :) I can't believe we're really just 2 weeks apart. It must have been something in the tapas we ate in that cute restaurant!

People should know better, but unfortunately don't.

Would it make you feel better if I told you that someone once asked me when I was due? I don't have any children.

I think you look great, is it OK to have an internet based girl crush? :)


I think your belly looks great. I remember not showing with my first until 7 months but with the second, it popped at 4 months. They said some crap about the muscles not being as tight. As if I needed a reminder. Anyway, you look great! Show off that belly, work it and make it sexy.

Just wanted to let you know, I will be away from my usual commenting for 2 weeks. I'll be cruising the Panama Canal and I hope to be able to Blog from there. (But you never know!) Check out www.dackelprincess.com starting Tuesday for two weeks and you never know what you might find!
See you when I get back.
