GRAPEFRUIT INDEED

I've lost six pounds since I found out I was pregnant.  I haven't had much appetite, and for years I've been accustomed to eating big meals with my husband.  But I can't figure out where the six pounds has been lost from...

Normally if I stand sideways in the mirror, I can suck my tummy in and look pretty skinny.  But since my uterus is now supposedly the size of a grapefruit, my gut simply doesn't suck in anymore.

I just made myself dizzy and nearly passed out trying to suck my tummy in.  Heh.

I guess I can kinda start to notice that I'm pregnant.

1 Geez, I never thought of it maybe that's my problem, I'm pregnant too.

2 It's contagious, Tim! The Internet has unexpected side effects. Call the CDC!

3 Gee, I sure hope that's not why I'm so round in the middle!

4 My first trimester, I felt fat and ungainly.  I told my sister-in-law (who has had four children) that I already felt like a house.  She laughed and said that if I felt like a house in the first trimester, I'd feel like a whole city by the third.

I actually felt cute and round by the end of the second trimester, and a little weebly during the third.  When I had to go on the gestational diabetes diet, I lost five pounds, even while Pie was growing.  I didn't feel like a city: I felt like a bubble.

An early word of warning (because YOU WILL MAKE IT THERE): Don't eat too much at Thanksgiving.  I'm serious.  Don't even fill your plate.  I just took a little of everything, had one plate of food and some dessert, and -- I am not kidding -- my belly grew a whole size.  There just isn't room in the tummy when Baby is that big.
