Belly Shots

Perhaps you've been curious as to the size of my midsection as of late. I've gotten a few requests, so I guess I should oblige. It's really not that interesting. I thought I'd be a lot bigger at 4 1/2 months. It's only a matter of time, I'm sure, before it sneaks up and makes up for lost time and then some.

I think I've been feeling this kid move lately. It's hard to tell though, b/c sometimes I think it's just gas. But then I don't feel really gassy, so I think it must be the baby. It feels like he/she is pushing on my stomach to get out. Weird.

I still have to pee a lot. Usually during the night. How convenient.

I'm also really tired. Like, ridiculously tired. Exhausted. I've fallen asleep well before 10 almost every night this past week. It hits hardest around 2 in the afternoon and all I want to do is take a nap. This is especially frustrating when I'm at work. Although, I do take little cat naps in empty rooms if I get the chance...

Otherwise, I'm feeling pretty good. We find out next Friday what we're having already! I feel like this pregnancy has flown by! I can't believe we're already almost halfway there. Nuts.

The apartment purging is practically complete, and it's a good feeling. I have a super top secret project I'm working on that I want to finish so I can focus on learning how to use my new camera! And I'm still dying to read Breaking Dawn-not that I have a copy yet. Too many things to do, not enough time.

Ah, I remember being tiny like that my first pregnancy. Then, by the third or fourth, you look like that when you're ONE month pregnant!

Hey you can borrow my Breaking Dawn book when you're ready to read it. Ruth is borrowing it right now and she'll be done in the next few days.

YOU SUCK!! I swear I've got an oversized honeydew in my belly and you... well, you just have a mango!

You look great! ;)

Yeah, well that's depressing. You just look like me now. Besides that, you look adorable! I also love how the midriff suddenly goes from "slutty" to "sweet" once you are prego.

Although I think yours is cuter than mine, I think I win in the bigness category. Although I'm about 4 months ahead. Dang. It's just not valid no matter what. Enjoy it as the bigness increases!

Belly? What belly?! You are so cute! I can't wait to find out what the little Calister is.

Do find a very solid chunk of time to read Breaking Dawn. It was good to have closure.
