Why Some Women Can't Wait

to tell everyone they are having a baby, that is.  It really isn't because I just can't wait to share the news.  (Though it is partly because Hans can't wait to share the news.)  It isn't even that I get sick, tired and cranky, even though I do.  It is simply because of this...

This is just sad.  I am a day away from 12 weeks in this photo.  Yep, only 3 months!  I have a friend who is further along than I am, is having twins and already has three kids and she isn't showing this much.  This is why we tell people right away.  I think I was in the best pre-pregnancy shape before Gus and therefore didn't start showing until about 15 weeks.  However, this isn't the starting to show phase.  This is the "Wow, you're pregnant!" phase.  This is about the time when people ask how far along I am and when I answer, the next question is, "Are you having twins?"  My only source of comfort in this is that I've only gained two pounds.

So, here's to another 6 months...oh, it's depressing just typing the number 6.  And here's to another big baby.

Katie, you look great! very healthy with a cute little bump. I started showing early with Maren and certainly gained more than 2 pounds in the first trimester. Hope you are feeling better, and six months will go by quickly!
