the bump

when our friends the mcmullins moved to pasadena, melanie was pregnant with henry. there was an eccentric older couple at our church who were always saying odd things, and one of the first sundays the mcmullins went to church, the man came up to melanie, looked at her stomach, and said: "as they say in people magazine, is that a baby bump?"

we laughed about that a lot. and now i think about it often as i'm growing my own little bump. sometimes i think i look like a girl who's eaten a few too many burritos, but once in a while i actually look pregnant. i guess.

i'm 18.5 weeks. baby wells is allegedly the size of a bell pepper.

and fyi it's been tough to get a good belly shot. i guess that's how you know i'm not really that pregnant. here are a couple to give you a general idea:




and just for reference, here's what i looked like the day we found out i was pregnant. i guess compared to this i definitely have grown a bit:

oh and by the way my latest craving is cheese. if anyone wants to make a dish of 7-layer dip and bring it to my house, i'd be eternally indebted ;)

TOTALLY cutest bump ever. Must be the cutest baby EVER too. You look great. I can't wait until you feel that first kick, and I'm so glad food sounds appealing to you now.

Cute bump! ...Even though it's still pretty microscopic. And you met my boss? Uh oh. I can only imagine. Looking forward to THAT story. :)

Lacey said...

Very cute baby bump! Why is it, that everyone in my family look so dang cute pregnant but I look like an old fat cow when I am! Am I really not apart of this family?!! HaHaHa!
You look adorable!

The Facks of Life said...

don't worry...you'll look pregnant in no time. but i do hate that weird, "i look chubby" phase every time i'm pregnant.

mostly, i love that you're almost half way through your pregnancy and still wearing the same jeans you were wearing the day you found out you were pregnant!

do you know how many people hate you for that?! :)

La La Land said...

Adorable. Can you believe you are almost half way there! Congrats and let's get together for some 7 layer dip!

Oh, and I totally know who the couple is. I didn't even have to be there and I know who it is. Love it.

Well be greatful that you're not huge yet... with your second one you will look 5 months prego when only 2-3 months. It's quite disheartening. :) Are your migraines due to pregnancy too? If I don't chug water like crazy, I'm hurting like crazy in 6-12 hours! Oh well.

You are too cute! LOVE the baby bump!! Can't wait until you're ginormous (the official term for 3rd trimester)!!!

Glad food sounds good!!

sachia said...

You are so darn cute. You are one sassy mama and I love the belt. You keep us posted on how that belly is growing because it is fun to see watch that belly grow.

I have no clue who the couple is.

Michelle said...

I love how my bump surpasses your belly by like 4 inches. :) Ah, first time motherhood bliss. :)
