Here I am at 15 weeks now. I put on a maternity T-shirt for the first time today and WHAMMO! I suddenly look pregnant. If I had only known back in 2005 to bust out with the maternity shirts early! Then I wouldn't have looked as though I'd just returned from a kegger and eaten a pizza buffet on the way out.

Bring on the Bulbous
They say you "show" more quickly with your second and subsequent pregnancies. I am starting to believe them. I think you just never actually get your flat stomach back after the first and spend the next two years sucking it in. Then, when you hear you're pregnant again, you just take a deep breath and let it all hang out. But, let's compare anyway, shall we? Here I am at 15 weeks with Becca. Everyone made total fun of me for this picture. I turned around after it was snapped to find everyone laughing. At a poor pregnant woman! John swears I was just "pushing it out" because I desperately wanted to look pregnant. It was at John's sister's wedding (Hi Amy and Matt!) and I thought I was HUGE. That is so hilarious seeing how huge I actually did become by the end of the pregnancy. (I won't post the photos of my cankles.) But, I had just spent 20 minutes sobbing because I couldn't find anything to wear. I would not normally wear a T-shirt to someone's rehearsal dinner, but it was the only thing that fit!
