When I noticed that my pants were getting snug, and some wouldn't even button, I looked at my stomach and told my husband I thought I had a tumor. A short time later I caught sight of myself in the mirror as I was getting dressed. In frustration I said to myself, "This is ridiculous! I look pregnant! Why am I getting so big?" A few days later I awoke from yet another nap and the thought occurred to me, could I be pregnant? I got out of bed at once and took a test. I was in shock when it came back positive, so much so that I got the kids up from their naps and went to the lab to get blood drawn to be sure it was true. And it was. I am pregnant.
While I may look like I'm entering my third trimester, I am only 14.5 weeks pregnant. And no, it's not twins. There is only one in there! I'm discovering that there is some truth to the statement that the more children you have the earlier you start to show.
