14 Weeks

Good lord would you look at the size of my BELLY???

Seriously, it's gigantic.  Unreal.  PS - That's my tough face.  Feels tougher than it looks.

I was looking at photos from my pregnancy with Aiden and I think the shape of my belly is different.  It's more torpedo-like this time.  I know it's not a direct comparison because one is shirts and one is skins, but here is my photo at 16 weeks (two weeks further along than I am now) with Aiden:

Whenever people see me wearing a fitted shirt at work they say, "WOW.  You are going to be HUGE."  Did you see me last time?  If that wasn't huge, then what was it?  Gah.

I know I've already mentioned it, but the nausea is way worse this time.  It is affecting my diet. Nothing ever sounds good.  The only things that ever sound remotely edible are fresh things, like fruits, vegetables and salads.  Cheese and water crackers usually make the list.  Occasionally pasta is on there as well.  It sounds a LOT like my cravings last time.

Lately, I've only needed the Zofran (anti-nausea) every third day.  It used to be every other day, if not every day.  I have hope that it will disappear completely.  Please.

We tried to get Aiden to take a photo with me and the torpedo-belly, but he refused.  Instead, he hovered in the doorway begging to look at the camera.

OMG he is so CUTE! You can't even STAND IT! I just wanna squeeze him! Even though he'd hate it, LOL!

Oh, and you look adorable, dispite the 'hard' look on your face, which lets face it, just makes us all laugh anyhow.

Haha, I saw this on facebook, and I immediately looked at your pregnancy pictures with Aiden. I just dont remember you being HUGE. I still dont think you were HUGE, your were just pregnant. I never even saw your last few pregnancy pictures until today, and I can promise that I was WAY bigger! In fact, I stopped taking photos at 33 weeks because otherwise I would have had to put the camera on the panoramic setting!
I think you look beautiful. It's kind of funny, when you aren't pregnant, you see pregnant women and you think they look so beautiful, but when you are the one pregnant - you just feel fat. So, I am going to tell you that you are beautiful. For every person that tells you your huge, just smile and say, thanks what an amazing compliment. Ughhh I seriously hate that - most pregnant women are emotional basket cases on a good day (and I am not saying that you are one of those women...but I am - hell, I am a basket case without the pregnancy hormones!) So, Once again - I think your gorgeous!

Thanks ladies!

I didn't feel fat last time, but I do this time. Only because I started showing so early. I'm sure it's partially do to all the extra skin I accumulated last time. Sorry for the visual. ;)
