Baby #2 – Nineteen Weeks

My belly doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of growth in these photos, but I swear it is! To be perfectly frank with you all, any sort of bump I had during the first few months was solely due to the fact that I was eating too much bloaty dairy.  Dairy and I have an interesting relationship. I love it, yet it tries to murder my insides. But I still eat it. All the time. Because IT’S JUST SOOOO GOOOOOOOD.

Mmmmm… cheese.

(FOCUS, Morgan.)

Anyway. The other day I got my first Oh you’re pregnant?? We thought you were just gaining a lot of weight! comment. Those are always jolly good for the soul! This person went on to say that she and a coworker were noticing how I had put on some pounds when I was walking by the other day and that they were trying to decide what was up with me. I was like, Yeah, I’m five months pregnant… remember I told you a few months ago? She apparently did not remember, and looked over at her coworker with an AHA! expression. Really? Was it that big of a mystery?

I’m really not that bugged by it, surprisingly. I had a lot of that stuff flung my way when I was pregnant before and I realize some people just don’t know what to say or how to say it. That’s coo. I’ll just keep on scarfing down cheese and chocolate, stick out my lactose-belly and hope for the best.

    I mean, it is hard to not be offensive about a pregnant woman’s weight, but really… people should just keep their mouths shut and their minds in their own business.

  2. You’re adorable! One of my peeves is when people are like…”Oh wow! You’re barely showing–I bet you don’t even feel pregnant yet!” Blech.

  3. I know that love/hate relationship all too well with cheese and other dairy… sad, so sad.
    You look great! :)

  4. I probably wouldn’t have said anything towards you either if I was wondering in the last couple of weeks, because some girls just really don’t like comments on their weight. And imagine you weren’t pregnant.. that might’ve been quite awkward for her and you..

    Anyways, you look really cute and I love your outfit! :D

  5. Well, I got those oh so wonderful comments at the end of my pregnancy of, “Wow! You are still pregnant? You look like your are miserable!” When really I felt fine other than my ankles being 10 sizes larger than usual. What do you say to someone who tells you that you look miserable? I love your posts, by-the-way, they make me chuckle. Thanks!

  6. good for you. i’m amazed at the balls on some people, discussing your weight and admitting it. Seriously.
    I’m not sure what’s worse, the part of pregnancy where people look at you and try decide if you’re fat or pregnant, or the part where people stare at you like they think you’re gonna give birth right there on the floor. Yes, I am in fact Holyshit Pregnant. The only thing that excites me more than noticing that even my crocs are suddenly getting a bit tight (what the crap, man. crocs even. That’s just cruel.) is going out in public in said crocs and having people visibly measure up whether they figure my water’s gonna break in this aisle or the next one.
    Yay, pregnancy! The miracle of life!
    I decided this morning that pregnancy hormones are like steroids. They make you grow bigger but they can give you some mighty roid rage for ‘no apparent reason’ sometimes.

  7. You are just tooooo pretty! Your the cutest pregnant person ever :)

    um…I ate oreos and milk at least once a week..and oh,boy did i pay for it..ugh.

  8. You and your lactose belly look fab! Don’t worry about what other people say, as you say, sometimes they just don’t know how to say it! I had some funny remarks when I was preggo’s too! Love the dress and belt by the way! Have a great weekend!

  9. “Remember I told you I was pregnant several months ago when you and that other one commented on my weight back then?” Who are these catty gadflies that have nothing better to do than to gossip about your size? Color me *irked.*
