pregnancy bloat

bloat /bloʊt/ –verb (used with object)
1. to expand or distend, as with air, water, etc.; cause to swell

this HAS to be the least attractive pregnancy symptom. i'm so bloated that i already look at least 6 months preggers. i had to buy some maternity pants b/c my jeans were just cutting into me, not fun when added to morning sickness.

here are a couple of pregnancy pics. the first (in black & pink) was when i was 9 months pregnant with Mia. the second (in blue) i took 5 min ago...4 weeks preggers.

notice my lovely belly cast, from our first pregnancy, in the background. in order for that to have worked, Daryl had to rub me down with Vaseline...one of the perks for him....and me :)

I love your belly cast!!! I have one too from when I was pregnant with R. Oh, the Vaseline...what a mess that was!

You are looking great, Mama!

Ok, you did NOT have that tummy when I saw you on Monday! You got a pillow under there?
