You Say "Baby", I Say "Tapeworm"

Last week I was feeling pretty good after my doctor's appointment. Bun was doing well and it turned out that despite the fact that I look bigger, I actually weigh less than I did at the same point in my first pregnancy. And then this week I turned into a human consumption machine. Seriously, I can't stop eating.

A small consolation is that Motherhood Maternity came out with these new jeans that have some sort of lycra built into the band that somehow makes my belly look smaller, higher and even more beautiful. All for $16.95. Does life get better than that? And no, I won't post pictures, you have to take my word for it.

Because, really, right now I look better naked than I look in clothes. How often do you hear someone say that? In maternity clothes I get all of these funky bulges and lumps where the various layers cross over each other. Whoever designed "low rider" pants - for pregnant woman or really anyone - should be shot. In the back. As they try to run away. Because they can't get very far. Because the freaking things will keep falling down...

Honestly, I love my pregnant belly. I love being pregnant. I feel ripe and womanly and feminine and (most days, from the neck down) beautiful. But maybe that is because my face is obscured by some type of frosted carbohydrate...

You're supposed to eat! I totally just saw an ad for those jeans in a magazine the other day and was like, when I get preggers again I am SO getting those.

Gosh - I wish they had those jeans when I was pregnant. I loved this entry - you really made me chuckle and I needed that today. I loved being pregnant too! (No not going to do it again any time soon). Glad to hear you are feeling well.
