I finally broke down and asked The Colonel to take a picture of the belly. I KNOW there's a baby in there (I can feel him rolling all over a lot of the time), but I still don't care for the pictures...so feel privileged that I'm sharing them with you! =)
But, before I do, I have to tell you that I must not look THAT pregnant based on what happened yesterday. I was at Sam's Club looking through their sports bras (I bought one, but it was WAY too small when I got it home and tried it on, so back to the store I go today!), and a lady was looking at something next to me. She dropped the package she was holding, and it landed right in front of me. I looked down at it and took a little step back so she could pick it up. But she didn't pick it up. She stepped back and looked at ME to pick it up for her! I squatted down grunting, picked it up, and handed it back to her, all the while wanting to stick my belly out farther and say, "um, hello, belly here!" I just handed it back to her and walked away. Guess I don't look THAT pregnant.
Ok, now that I told you my story, here are some belly shots.
Here's me at 19 weeks.
And now at 24 weeks, in the same outfit.
To me, I don't feel like I've gotten bigger because it's such a gradual change to me...but obviously I have!
Now, I need to ask your advice...all you working Moms out there...did you take your infant to day care? How did you choose your provider? What questions should I be asking as I start to look around? We are still trying to figure out what we're going to do for day care, and we have several options (SIL - are you still in the running to help??), but I know I need to get going on it now, because there are waiting lists. So, help me out...give me your advice...tell me what you did! Thanks!
