Here I am. My name is my blog. And there is a picture of my face all smiling and sweet, looking like life is perfect and I have all the answers. Who am I? Let me just get this off my chest, friends, because I have struggled, struggled, struggled through this. Why am I...

The Belly

It's official guys, I'm huge. Last Tuesday, at my weekly doctor's appointment my belly measured 44 weeks! And, ahem, I'm only 34. In the span of two weeks I gained eight pounds and my belly grew 8 cm. I've entered the stage of the freakishly abnormal belly and it...
