Thanksgiving Belly

I can’t BELIEVE how big I’ve gotten!! It feels like my waistline has nearly doubled in circumference over the last week.. I hardily believe this can be attributed to not one, but TWO causes: The premier suspect is the overly indulgent, gluttonous, completely delicious Thanksgiving that I enjoyed and secondly, the rapid-fire growth of my now third-trimester baby! (I can feel the turkey and numerous casseroles I consumed fighting for room with the baby.) I am finally starting to really put on weight, and while this is reassuring in many ways, as a woman, I can’t help but be a little unnerved as I watch the numbers on the scale climb. It’s just something that I think we’re so programmed to fear, that it’s sort of hard to get comfortable with, even though I know it’s perfectly good and healthy. I guess since I gained hardly at all the first two trimesters, my body has a lot of catching up to do! Here is the shot of my glorious belly. I can’t imagine growing at this rate for three more months. Good God.

The Thanksgiving belly is beautiful. Yes….you will continue to grow. Which means…Baby Gonzo is growing. What a small sacrifice to make. :)
