I turned 32 yesterday! It was a lovely day that started out with Joaquin singing me the most adorable version of Happy Birthday. I got flowers from a student and was in a meeting where the staff sang me Happy Birthday. The evening ended with my parents, Dan and Joaquin taking me out for sushi, don't worry, I only ate the cooked stuff. It was a wonderful day and I couldn't ask for more.
I also finally took another belly picture. Here I am at 27 weeks.
I know, I know. I'm big.
It's kind of freaking me out actually. I know how big I got with Joaquin and I was hoping I could curb that a bit with diet and exercise. While I'm not gaining as much weight as I did, I am still getting pretty much just as giant! It doesn't help when people at work assume I'm due any day or ask if I'm having twins either. "Nope", I tell them, "I'm just fat, thanks!"
I'm really trying to enjoy the belly and not worry about the weight, but it's hard for a girl who has struggled with weight all of her life! I know, I know, I'm pregnant, it's supposed to happen, it's all baby, it's natural blah blah blah.
Oh well...anyway 13 more weeks to go...movin' on into the third trimester!
