Then one day, maybe 2 weeks ago I awoke to a swelling in my stomach. Not your typically "I overindulged at Olive Garden food baby" but a real-life bump. It's been growing slowly and some days sticks out more than others, but yesterday I walked into my parents house and my mom ran straight for my belly and started rubbing it and couldn't believe I was showing. She pulled up my shirt and stared at it for a bit and smiled. Needless to say, I felt very proud....of what I do not really know, but housing a baby for 9 months does give you a chip on your shoulder. "Me woman! Me keep baby nice and warm in womb!"
