My expansive gut

I guess your belly grows a lot faster with triplets than it does with one baby. Somebody asked me today if I was 5 or 6 months along. She was shocked when I told her I was only 10 weeks. I explained that it was triplets so things were progressing much quicker than average.

Vivian also told me on Sunday that my belly had grown "a lot" in just two weeks. She hadn't seen me the week before. She said she needed to start planning a baby shower before I'm huge and end up on bed rest. She's already thinking I'm going to be a whale.

Kibby asked me if I was pushing it out, and I explained that I wish I was. I can't even suck it in if I try.

We had a shower for Jamie on Saturday, and I was there lugging around my fat gut and nausea. Amanda is also pregnant and is several months along, and I think my stomach is the same size as hers. We had a great time at the shower, but I kept thinking whenever Jamie opened a gift that we were going to need three of those. It's so overwhelming!

The picture above was taken at the end of the day. By belly's size seems to peak out in the evening. I usually wake up and feel like I'm a little bloated, but as the day progresses, my tummy grows and grows. By the time I go to sleep at night, it feels like it's going to burst.

As far as my pregnancy sickness goes, I still have my bad days and a few semi-good days. Yesterday, I went on a burrito eating spree. I had one from Moe's for lunch, and I asked Billy to pick up one from Willy's on his way home from work. By the time I ate the last bite of the one last night, I knew the burrito streak had ended. I've overdosed on yet another food. What will it be next? By the way, before I got pregnant, I probably ate a burrito 3 or 4 times per year.

I have to get up another post because I have new baby pictures from our appointment with our perinatal specialist. I just scanned them in this morning. I asked Billy to do it last night, but he was very busy playing Rock Band and must have forgotten. He did take some time out to take the picture above so I can't complain too much. He gets mad whenever I post negative information about him on the blog so I have to balance it with something nice.;)
