Here's Your Sign

I've decided lately that in order to explain many things, I need a sign, stamped to my forehead, printed on my shirt, something that says "I'M PREGNANT" This would explain so many things to so many people.... For instance:

* The contraption of string or rubber bands I have rigged together is to help hold my pants closed. It's not that I'm in denial over gaining weight, refusing to buy up a size, it's because my regular clothes don't fit, and maternity is still too big.

* I'm not a begger digging through the trash can in aisle 2 of the grocery store, I simply got too close to the seafood department and felt the need to dry heave for just a little while before finishing my shopping.

* Anywhere between the hours of roughly 2pm and 6pm everyday, I nap - if you call and I don't answer, I still love you. I'm just really exhausted and most likely nauseous.

* I'm pretty much late for everything right now, just a by product of the morning sickness.

* If we are having a conversation and I become suddenly quiet, it's because I'm fighting the urge to vomit or dry heave, bear with me, it will pass momentarily.

* Eating dinner twice is completely normal for someone in my "condition".

* Although showering does not come everyday, I'm not "letting myself go." Cute ponytails are always stylish, right?

So there you have it! I'M PREGNANT!

You go ahead and "do" pregnant. Everybody else be damned. And, I hope the nausea eases soon.

"Letting yourself go" and wearing a "cute ponytail" are only excuses for pregnancy? Sheesh! I must not have gotten the memo. I thought it was excusable from the time you got pregnant until your last child leaves the home...
