Don't swallow watermelon seeds

Here are a few pictures from this morning for those of you who are interesting in watching the progress of my growing belly.

First is the usual picture:

Michael then wanted to get a picture of me in front of his masterpiece:

Since my co-workers keep telling me I don't look pregnant from the back I had to get this shot to see what I think:

As for other parental type activity... we just got back from our baby CPR class.

Before leaving for class I changed from a t-shirt and shorts into a maternity shirt and skirt.

"Are you trying to look more pregnant?" Michael joked.

"Don't make fun of me. So what if I am?!" I answered.

Yes, we learned some useful things for infant and child CPR. For me, the biggest thing I took back from the class was the same old message; seems that I don't look as pregnant as some others. My feeble attempt to look more pregnant was useless. Of course, it is possible all the other ladies are 9 months pregnant with twins and triplets, I don't know for sure.

Earlier today I was talking with one of my pregnant neighbors. Her reaction to hearing when I'm due, "You're so small." To put this into perspective, this message was coming from a skinny Asian girl, who's 12 weeks behind me.

That's it, I give in, I'm waving my white flag. I am no longer going to bother telling people I'm pregnant. Instead I am just going to advice them not to swallow watermelon seeds because it obviously makes you look quite bloated. Maybe people will reply, "Holy cow, that was from swallowing a watermelon seed? You almost look pregnant."

Tomorrow is our next OB visit, we get our 32 week ultrasound. Stayed tuned, that means actual pictures of BIG Baby G instead of these boring belly shots.
