Alright I took my first uncomfortable pregnancy pictures (e.g. with my shirt pulled up and an obvious focus on my midsection) today. Here they are for all you family members and friends dying to see if I've changed.
I will venture to say that from these pics, you don't think I've changed a bit. Oh contraire, mi amigo. Although I haven't gained any weight, Besido is moving my insides around so much that I have gained two inches in my waist at my belly button. Needless to say, this somewhat limits the clothes that fit me well. I finally bought a belly band this weekend to help smooth things out and hold up my pants when I can't keep them buttoned. I also found a tactic today that worked well using a hairband to hook my pants button to the button hole while still leaving expansion room. And after I've had dinner and a glass of milk? There's no hope. The belly puffs out to Timbuktu and I'm left with a wardrobe consisting of t-shirts and sweatpants. I can't wait for the day when everyone (especially at work) knows I'm pregnant and I can just let it puff out as far as it wants. Ahh, just a little while longer.
But anyways, I hope you enjoyed the uncomfortable-but-I-know-I'll-want-to-have-them-someday pics. :)
