This belly is officially getting too big. I just had to go to the washroom -- really bad of course because that's always the case -- and the tie on my shorts got a knot and I couldn't get them undone. The bigger problem is that I couldn't see past my belly to get the knot undone. ACK. If there's a will there's a way. I got them undone and just in the nick of time!
Here's the bella at 6 months! Mark took this in Chicago. Here's what I've learned so far:
Don't drink any liquids if you know you won't be near a washroom any time soon
Don't drink any liquids if you're going to bed and don't want to wake up 4 times a night
People will let you get away with more things when you're pregnant -- they feel sorry for you. For example, I went to a Cubs game and wanted to bring my water bottle in and they said no because it could harm someone if I threw it. I said "Do you think a pregnant person would throw a bottle at someone?" They believed me -- little do they know pregnant people have raging hormones.
It sometimes feels like your baby is kicking you in the va-jj. This feeling is evermore present when your bladder is full
People will always be smaller or bigger than you no matter when they are due. I just found out a woman in my yoga class is due 3 days before me with TWINS and she's waaay smaller than me. And that's ok.
I think that's all I've learned so far. ;) I'm sure more will come...
