okay. so, am i allowed to give up something for Lent even though I’m Jewish?? I think it’s a fantastic concept – – I’d love to give up dessert (save for the frozen yogurt i’m allowed to have after each OB check-up). so, you heard it here first. Ali’s giving up the desserts.

i’ve now gained close to 6 pounds – all of which seems to be settling in these ginormous basoomas that i’ve acquired and have no clue what to do with. I will be hitting the bra store today to do something about it. yikes. they are massive.

i’m also now entering the in-between-y, awkward stage. Most pregnant women visit this stage for 3, maybe 4 weeks at the longest. i will be stopping here, oh, until i’m about 7 months pregnant. great. it’s the stage where your clothing no longer fits you, but you are way way too small to wear maternity. to humor myself, i stopped by Old Navy and tried on the xs maternity jeans. while certainly comfortable, as i walked towards the mirror in the dressing room, they fell to the floor. yes, it will be a LONG time before i’ll be able to wear those.

so, i’m resigned to buying bigger sizes, making me look fat, and not pregnant. why can’t i have one of those awesome pregnancy bodies where you pop this amazing belly at 8 weeks and look adorable in maternity clothes? instead, i’m blessed with the full-body pregnancy. i carry my babies everywhere but my belly it seems. in my chest, in my ass, in my thighs…you name it. but stomach? what stomach? i’ve got flab, sure, but no baby to speak of.

i think i need to get a t-shirt made. “I’m not fat. I’m pregnant.”

  1. The internet never ceases to amaze me:



    Both seem applicable to you 🙂

  2. You and I just need to give up some of our ginormous busts for Lent. ::laughs:: I know what you mean– I’ve already gained 7 pounds, and it’s ALL UP TOP. Painful and awkward. I’m finally getting a bump, but last time it took me till 7 months to pop, too. My current bump looks like a solid version of The Day After Thanksgiving.

    ::laughs:: If you get the boy and I get the girl, maybe we can just trade and no one would be the wiser. 😉

  3. I am digging my big breasts, I have to say. Sad they won’t stay after the belly is born.

    I have the same problem with clothes. So what I do is buy bigger pants from regular stores and then buy maternity style tops..the ones that really only pregnant women would wear..and that seems to complete the look.

    Congrats to you on your pregnancy! 🙂

  4. If we can please ask all of you preggo ladies to keep the “I love big breasts” chatter to a minimum. Glorifying large mammaries does nothing but help to objectify women as sex objects. It places too much pressure on females to have bodies that are simply not realistic. Objectifying women and their breasts in this way only leads to dangerous eating habits, anorexia, life threatening body-altering surgery, unrealistic expectations from the male population and the like. Very disturbing….

    (o Y o) Silly little planet… Anyone could take over the place with the right set of mammary glands.
