Do You See It?

I was told twice last week that I'm getting a belly. I don't really see it. Although, I have invested in and gotten good use out of a belly band. To be fair, I think it has a lot more to do with the gallon of water my doctor is insisting I drink daily than the itty bitty baby I'm growing.

But still, I thought I better start documenting before I really start showing.

So what do you think? Do you see anything?

By the way, this picture requires a lot of explanation. I look like that because I was about to clean my house and decided I'd rather waste time playing with my camera than clean. I'm pasty and pale because it's winter and I'm fair. That's the breaks. I'm standing in the middle of an open room instead of in front of a wall or something that would give you some perspective because it was the only place I could find to set my camera up and do a decent timer shot. Jamie was at work so he couldn't help. This was in the afternoon - 2 meals, 2 snacks and 1/2 gallon of water into the day. So I admit, when I wake up in the morning the belly that might be there in this shot is not present.

Maybe there's no actual baby bump yet, but when I post another picture in a few weeks, you'll be able to look back at this one and say, "NOW I see it!"

And now I'm going to take my poor neglected puppy for a walk in this gorgeous 70 degree weather. That way when I start getting a for real bump, I'll know it's not just the extra ice cream I've been eating.

I don't see it yet. Honestly, if I took a picture of my "belly" right now and posted it next to yours and made people guess which girl was pregnant, they would all guess wrong. The good news is that you can document your belly progression and really see how you and your baby are growing. You look great - hope you're feeling great too! :-)

Ok, saying this as your sister who's seen you in much less;) I SEE IT! You were soooo super skinny at Christmas that your stomach was totally (annoyingly so much so that I hated you;) flat and now it looks like my stomach on a really, really good day, which means BABY BUMP! Since I'm trying to loose weight maybe I should take pictures and see how long it takes you to pass me:)

Love you!

I don't see it now but, I did see it when I was with you this pass weekend. By the way I was sad last night when I asked for some Mud Pie Ch. & Moose Tracks ice cream and was told by Grandma we don't have any. You are remembering the ice cream you and Tara talked Jamie into getting for the poor pregnant wife & Old grandpa. Love you!
