"Are you having a baby?"

Hi Baby,

You must feel very special to be getting two posts in just one day!

You should feel special; you are special :)

I just had to tell you something wonderful that happened to me tonight.

Tonight, for the first time, someone could tell I was pregnant without me telling them - it was so wonderful!

Granted, it was someone I know. I'm not quite at the point where a random stranger would have the confidence in their assumption to ask me to my face if I was pregnant.

But still.

In the past, every time I told someone I am pregnant, they would immediately look at my stomach and then say, "You are?"

But tonight, someone I haven't seen in a while (and therefore haven't told yet), saw me from across the room, came up to me, pointed to my stomach and said, "Are you having a baby?"

And I'm pretty sure I just started walking on clouds right there - I mean it, I was flying!

And then I said, "Yes, I am. Thank you for noticing!"

It was so nice for someone to see recognize notice that I am carrying you inside of me.

And I love that it won't be long now before the rest of the world - even the people who don't know me - can see it, too :)

I love you a lot a lot a lot, Baby; I can't wait to hear your heartbeat again on Monday at our next appointment!

All My Love,



  1. How lovely!

    I'm glad you wrote a post about this, so you'll remember it always.

    It won't be too much longer before it becomes obvious to a lot of people, even strangers.

    Looking forward to your next update!

  2. I loved it when I was showing enough for other people to notice. You described the feeling well!
