Belly Watch 2008

Well, it appears that the focus is now completlely on my abdomen. I'm noticing it's the first thing people at work look at when they see me - better than my chest, I guess. I was even standing in the kitchen at work today waiting on my lunch in the microwave when a woman who works in my college told me I was showing. (It totally depends what I wear.) I know it's all good hearted, but it's weird just feeling like everyone is looking at your stomach.

And yes, I guess I do think I am showing a little today. I'm wearing my regular pants with my brand new WHITE Bella Band b/c they do not zip up all the way now and a slim sweater over top. So thanks to the band, it looks like I have a nice and shapely, rounding belly. (But let me tell you, that's the band doing it's work b/c my stomach is NOT that firm underneath.) So I guess it's just a facade.

So maybe it's time for a belly shot, although I assure you I will not be doing any that expose the skin on my actual belly. You'll have to settle for clothed ones.

Let the belly shots begin! I wish I would have done weekly shots with both girls, that's one thing I didn't do! Well that and a belly mol - oh and I didn't do a 4-D sono! Ok so it seems there's a lot I didn't do! ;)

I didn't do ANY belly shots with Caroline and I regreted it, so I did a few with Bryce which is probably what I'll do this time.

As for the 4D - I always SAID I was going to do it and then when push comes to shove, I don't end up wanting to spend that much money. But as luck would have it, there's a 4D u/s place across the street from my office!!! Sooo, if the baby does not share it's gender with us at the anatomy u/s in a few weeks, I have decided I will spend the $90 for the brief 4D u/s. :)

Belly shots, belly shots, belly shots on-line!!!

Obscure reference to "The Office". I wonder if you'll get it.
