Do YOU Ever Feel Like This?

 This morning as I relaxed on my bus ride, feeling pretty smug because I made it to the stop in record time and was relatively pulled-together for a 17-week pregnant person running late to work, I vainly reflected on my satisfaction with my new maternity outfit.   But then, bummer: I looked down over my growing stomach and found four dried leaves and two pieces of a straw wrapper.  Where the heck did those even come from?  And have I gotten so big that trash can actually be spread across my body without me knowing it?  If that’s what’s happening in front I can only imagine what’s happening in back.  Oh well, out of sight; out of mind.

    welcome to motherhood and learning that full length mirrors are not part of the plan from here on in.

    maybe your tummy is developing its own gravitational pull? It might come in handy in the future when it’s difficult to bend over and pick stuff up.,.
