This comic popped up on my pregnancy-tracking app the other day. It struck me as particularly funny because I’m definitely guilty of checking out my stomach in the mirror lately, wondering if I’m actually showing yet or if I’m still kind of normal sized. I’m torn about it. On the one hand it’d be cool to have a belly to show off a little, like “Hey everyone, I’m pregnant! See, just look at my belly!” But I’m pretty sure they’re all thinking that I just ate a really big burrito for lunch.
On the other hand, maybe I should cherish my time not showing. I’ll have plenty of belly time and all that entails. I’ve heard rumors of unwanted touching, free advice, and backaches. I’m not sure it’s quite as glamorous as it sounds.
