Long Awaited and Much Requested

Back in December I took one of these - mostly to prove to Oliver that I was indeed pregnant. He kept asking how I knew, I just did. December 5th was a day to remember - I was five weeks and a few days.
On that day we looked like this (for the record Oliver still looks like that).
Then after 15 weeks I looked like this...yeah YOU can't tell, but I could.
Then at 20 weeks more people could tell.
Since some people thought I was just getting fat and since I was feeling fat, I hacked off all my hair. It was so people would stop focusing on my weight/waist/whatever, and have a conversation about something else. I work in an engineering office - they aren't known for being subtle, sensitive, tactful or politically correct. It was supposed to make me feel better and beautiful and it mostly worked. But then, ask anyone who knows me, I LOVE CHANGE!

So then at 29 weeks I looked like this.

So cute! I always think OTHER pregnant women are cute. I'm glad you've documented your growing belly...I don't think I've taken ANY belly pictures this time. Oh well...I'll get one at the hospital before giving birth. You look great!

You are so great to take pictures. I avoided them like the plague!! You are getting SO CLOSE. And you are cute. I knew with both of mine, well before a pregnancy test was taken; for different reasons though.
