Progress pics and pregnancy update...weeks 15 to date

I figured it would be interesting to document my progress pictures from when I started taking pictures of my pregnancy to date.
I have heard some interesting comments from folks as well and will post them whenever their received :-).

I am FINALLY starting to look pregnant @ 6-months! I did start wearing my maternity clothes at 20-weeks cause they were just more comfortable than my regular clothes.

Week 24. I popped last week! YAY!!!

 Now, you're all caught up. I'll post more progress pics as the weeks go by. Still don't have the fully rounded belly yet but I have had 3-people congratulate me since last week so I am guessing they can finally tell its not just fat but actually baby :-).

Comments I have received so far:
If you've been following my blog, you'd know that I have received some really interesting comments since J and I are an interracial couple.
Since getting pregnant, I have received the following comments from random people! I have found that getting pregnant invites ALL SORTS of people to make comments that just make you go "hmmm...that's different."

- Comment #1: " didn't wait long did you?" My response to that is that we were 10-months married when we got pregnant. But seriously, is it ANYONE's business how long I waited? I am no spring chicken afterall :-).

- Comment #2: "Chop chop...what are you waiting for? You're not getting any younger!" I wish I could attribute this to my mom who prayed for a baby before the end of the year but that would be unfair. This was from the same lady who said I married J to have light skinned babies. I gave her a look and didn't bother to tell her I was already 5-months pregnant when she made that comment.

- Comment #3: "Wow...the ladies are growing!" Really? I didn't notice! I assumed my bras shrunk in the dryer! For the record, I know women can talk about other women's boobs but it is never OK to mention that its growing. Its OK to say "they look perkier" :-).

- Comment #4: "You're carrying low and on your hips! You must be having a boy!" I didn't realize folks still believe in the old wives tales! For one thing, 3 sonograms (I know its not 100% proof) have said girl. And for another, it is NOT nice to imply that my hips are getting wider!

- Comment #5: "Auntie! You're still pregnant??? Geez, I want to meet my cousin!" This comment was just too too cute and I can attribute it to my nephew. It was my favorite of all. He is just so excited and when I showed him the sonogram pics, he knew EXACTLY what he was looking at! I was quite impressed and know he'll be a great older cousin come Fall.

Thoughts/random questions:
Moms out there (or moms to be), how long did it take you to start "showing"?

Has anyone made any silly comments worth sharing regarding your weight or how you look?


  1. People really have nerve! It's amazing!

    1. Yup. But I TRY to smile through it all because for the most part, I don't think they mean any harm.

  2. So cute!! Congrats on having your belly pop out!

  3. Congrat's. Glad I found your blog. Is this your first?

  4. I usually start showing around 20 weeks. But I have been 9 months with a lab coat on and people didn't know I was pregnant.
    Usually the ones that make comments about my weight are my family. They usually tell me my butt and hips are getting big.

    1. Oh wow! That IS impressive. I hope I am also like that with the next baby. Did you have a lot of morning sickness with yours? I didn't so I was kinda surprised that I didn't really start putting on weight until well into my second trimester.

      Gotta love family. My dad said the same thing to me when I visited them last time. " got bigger but its OK since you're pregnant." Good thing I love that man :-).

    2. I have morning sickness with all my babies. With the first till 7 months, the 2nd for the whole 9 months. And now I still have morning, really all day sickness.

    3. Oh no! I hope it doesn't last the full 9-months this time.
      Why do they call it morning sickness when it lasts all day for most people? I never understood that either.
      I hope it goes away soon and you can start enjoying your pregnancy!

  5. The Comments are endless aren't they..I think we were married seven months:-)

    1. Congratulations on your pending arrival! You're almost there. Has it been an easy pregnancy for you?

      Yeah...the comments do shock me sometimes.

  6. How exciting, Congratulations!!!
    I am laughing at the comments :). People are funny like that.

    1. They sure are. In hind sight, they are funny.
