Well, I don’t know if it’s my belly that seems to be sticking out a wee bit more today, or the awesome pair or maternity trousers Im wearing to work for the first time, but Im getting the sense that I finally look pregnant!
First, my good friend and colleague exclaimed, “wow, you’re really showing!” as soon as I walked into her office this morning.
Then I met a friend for lunch who has been out of the country since before I got pregnant. I planned to tell her sometime during our time together, but the moment I walked up, her eyes lit up and she began rubbing my belly.
Not everyone in my 25-person office knows I’m pregnant….yet. After lunch, I walked to the bathroom and a woman I work with stopped me in the hall, looked down at my belly and simply said, “Oh my gosh!”
Finally, moments later my boss who has known for a long time stopped in her tracks, started vigorously pointing at my belly and just smiled.
I still don’t totally see it – I kinda still just feel fat – but I’ve wanted to ‘look’ pregnant for so long now, and it seems to finally be happening. The congratulations are rolling in and it feels so good! People are excited for us. And it makes me all the more excited too!
I think I’ll try for my first belly pic soon! Stay tuned…
