!@(13wksUS2site.jpg popimg: “13 Weeks U/S Pic”) Alrightie – here are the pics so far. The Ultrasound picture to the left was taken at 13 weeks (11 weeks gestation) in early January. You can clearly see the head forming. To the left of the head there is a great big abyss of blackness – that’s amniotic fluid. It was really interesting to see during this weeks U/S, that the abyss if blackness has pretty much disappeared – baby now takes up the entire space – no wonder I’ve been beginning to feel baby’s movements! Unfortunately I don’t have this week’s pictures to share with you yet – I have to go back in a week from now and pick them up – Arrrgh! I wish my Dr, and the hospital were a wee bit closer to my house (they’re an hour away!)…
!@( 20weeks.jpg popimg: “20 Weeks Belly”)!@(20weeks_side.jpg:R popimg: “20 Weeks Belly Side”) If you’ve read this far you’re either a sucker for punishment, or a VERY loyal reader. So for that I must reward you – here are the 20 week pictures of my growing belly. LOL – gee aren’t you lucky – you get to see my big fat tummy!
I began this pregnancy at 125 lbs, and so far I’m up to 136lbs – not too shabby 😉 Oh yeah – and my boobs? They started out in an “A” cup. Yesterday I got measured for a new bra ’cause the one I was wearing was digging in and giving me 4 boobs…. Anyways, after trying on 6 different bras, the sales lady came to the conclusion that I’m now a “D”! A “D” 😯 OMG! She also said that since I’m only 4 1/2 months pregnant I shouldn’t buy too many of this size, ’cause she thinks I’m going to go even further – Further? Like a “DD”? Out of curiousity, I went to the maternity store and looked at their nursing bras – since I’m 34 inches around – the largest size they offer is a 34D – WTF am I going to do when it comes time to nurse? Man! To quote Jenny McCarthy:
I FEEL LIKE A PORN STAR!
I hate my belly but I love my boobs! Hopefully some of this “fullness” in the breasts will linger on long after the tummy has disappeared!
