"How far along are you?"
"I'm due April 2nd...with twins." Apparently I'm starting to look a little more pregnant than that. (Anna says I look pregnant, she was here last week, she's an expert.) I'm getting smiles and nods at the belly at the grocery store and people seem to want to help me more by carrying things to my car. A girl can't complain about that. It does make it hard to be in denial about your growing size. How come everytime I see another pregnant woman I think how beautiful and cute she looks in her maternity clothes but I'm so hard on myself?
I should also mention that baby showers are starting to be planned. Tentative dates are December 16th in Grand Rapids and January 6th in Detroit. Whay so early? Well the doctor has already told me that I should not plan to travel out of town after 28 weeks which is January 8th. No problems so far but remember our bodies really aren't built to carry two babies. Hopefully I will never have to hear the doctor say those two horrible words "bed rest". One way to keep that from happening is to take it easy and that is what I intend to do. Nap time!
