True Confessions of a 15 Week Pregnant Lady

Red= True confessions
Blue=Inner voice arguing with true confessions

I should be exercising and watching what I eat.
Nah, you'll be as big as a house in the end anyway. It doesn't matter.

Wow. I am getting pretty big.
You got big before and then lost even more weight than when you started. You'll do it again.

I hate that I get so wide. I wish I was a cute pregnant person.
That's how you are. You can't change that.

I hate to even weigh in at the doctor's office. I am afraid she will yell.
She has never yelled in the past. You'll be fine.

I have had three pregnancies before. Why do I care so much this time?
You haven't been this pregnant in a long time. You were too tired to care the last time.

It is so hard to let go of control of my body.
You are creating a baby. It is amazing. Let go.

This is me at about 38 weeks during my last full-term pregnancy in March of 2004

Stephanie took the words right out of my mouth. You are SO cute Indy. Very few people feel very cute at 15 weeks. Trust me, you are beautiful. This is the time when you are beautiful no matter what . . . like being a bride, but better.

You look great pregnant, and I'm sure you will look just as great this time!!

All right, girlfriend. First of all, when I first saw this photo, I thought it was you now. Saying that, I was shocked at how you didn't even look prego at last nights meeting. I thought you were covering it up with your sweater and then when you got home - BAM! you took this photo. Goes to show you that one needs to read every last line before jumping to conclusions. You look amazing at 15 weeks! You'll look amazing at 25 weeks and even more amazing at 40 weeks. You're a beautiful person both inside and out.
