While at Costco last weekend, a lady near one of the sample tables asked me if I was carrying twins. Maybe that would be insulting for most pregnant women who are carrying one baby, but I practically beamed at that, after having heard, “Oh, but you’re so SMALL!” for the majority of my pregnancy.
After telling her that, no, in fact, I am not having twins, the next question out of her mouth was, “So, when are you due?”
“Three weeks”, I replied.
“OH my goodness – you are one of those lucky women who doesn’t gain any weight during your pregnancy. You are ALL baby!”, she mused.
If she only knew! It must have been what I was wearing, because I’ve gained plenty of weight. 30 pounds of weight to be exact. I can feel it and see it and it does not make me very happy. But, who am I to complain? It only took 9 months and 1 week for me to look sufficiently pregnant, but I guess I finally do.
Also, Binary Boy? He’s right on target with weight. Poor guy is probably cramped in there, but the midwives guessimate that he’s going on 6.5 pounds so far.
And because I’ve been so lacking in updating the small profile photo over there, here’s the Week 37 belly shot:
Edit: Wanted to add that yesterday we finally got our blinds installed in the house and the installation guy, who used to be an EMT and had delivered three babies, asked me: “Only one baby in there”?
