Ok Kara and Tina, are you happy? Seeing my Jelly Belly on the internet? This is me at 15 weeks. Apparently ladies who haven't had babies before shouldn't really be showing. But this isn't just fat anymore, something is going on down there.
I'm trying not to feel bad that my belly is larger then the books say it should be. Especially now because I just received a very fun book (thanks Indigo!), written in the 1940's that gives me an interesting look into what was acceptable with pregnancy in that era. At one point it recommends that I should keep my cigarette consumption down to only 10 a day now that I am pregnant (for new readers I don't smoke, I just find this funny). I already have trouble breathing because pregnancy increases blood level to supply more oxygen to the baby. I can't imagine what 10 smokes a day would do to those ladies back in the 1940s! They wouldn't be able to walk a flight of stairs! Anyways I'm going to take everything written in a book with a grain a salt from now on. God knows what people 60 years from now are going to say when they look back on the books we wrote about pregnancy in this day and age.
