My skirts tight...I know you didn't ask, but I'm telling you. So are my shirts...I always carry high and they are starting to get tight in all areas. Seems early really...but not that I'm surprised. It's baby #5 and all. I showed earlier and earlier w/each one...I guess this one is no different. 9 weeks and I don't look it. Makes me realize how big I'm gonna get before too long and the comments will start
"OHHH how far along?"
"___ # weeks"
" OHHH you're huge...are you sure there's 1 in there"
"well this is #5 so I showed sooner"
You see this scenerio happened w/baby #4...I wanted to start and lie about when I was due so I didn't get those reactions!
This is where I get tickled at 1st time Mom's. It was 14 yrs ago for me so I don't remember how I acted...but I do know the maternity clothes were hideous back then and I wasn't in a hurry to wear them!
I'll read blogs of girls having their first and they are taking pics of their bellies at 5 weeks on....I hate to tell them but nothing will happen for a long while. That reminds me of my neighbor who ran down to show me her belly at 6 weeks pregnant w/her first. I just smiled thinking to myself...ummm that was there before you got pregnant. But I kept my mouth shut like a good girl.
Why on earth are they wanting to show so early? Do they realize you are pregnant for 40 weeks? That's a long time really and trust me you will start to show and then some! By the end you will wish you were able to see your feet let alone walk w/o waddling! Sit back...enjoy your slow growing belly and relax.
To my neighbor who is 20 weeks and the same size as me ...settle....No reason to be jealous! Ha ha. I've got so many weeks ahead of me it's not funny!
On a foodie note...
I lost my favorite recipe for my Bacon Broccoli Quiche. It made 2 pies and was the best thing I've ever eaten. it's been years since I've made it and sadly my memory has so many recipes floating in it I can't pull it from my memory bank! I'd been reading every recipe online, but none sound like mine. I found one that looks good...it calls for whipping cream instead of milk...? I've never made one like that.
I can see the recipe card in my head...it has a tiny picture of the quiche I cut from the magazine on it. WHERE ARE YOU RECIPE??? I'M CRAVIN YA
