Pregnancy Watch 6 months

I was wondering why I had the song “Love Shack” stuck in my head and I finally figured out why. It’s because every time I look in the mirror, I say to myself “You’re as big as a whale!” and then I guess I just sing the rest… ” I got me a car as big as a whale…We’re heading on down to the Love Shack!” Maybe that’s just funny to me.

Anyway, I do feel really big. Not like I’m moaning and complaining about gaining too much weight (though I do that too). I just feel like I’m much bigger than other pregnant woman at my stage. I went to a baby shower this last weekend and the girl it was being held for was half my size! She’s due in four weeks.

I guess everybody carries their babies differently and apparently little miss thing is sticking it all out in front. Sometimes I can feel bony parts pushing on my belly button. I think she’s in there doing hand stands horizontally from my back to my front. I don’t seem to carry much weight in the sides and everybody tells me I don’t look huge. I just look big in the front. Even my maternity pants are starting to get tight.

It’s very strange this whole pregnancy thing.
