34 Weeks, 2 Days

Oh, wait. This isn't me. Sorry, Mr. Cool, but turnabout is fair play. You'll note Mr. Cool is barely showing, although he has joined me in shorter hair.
Pregnancy play clothes--these are my favorite jeans. I am a fan of the "secret fit belly," which is a pantyhose-like panel that pulls all the way up over the bump. For the first time, I don't have a gap in my jeans. I think this is a technology that could be applied to non-maternity clothing. When I look at myself in the mirror, I don't feel like I look this ginormous. I know in reality, I'm not huge. I've been excellent with my weight gain. It's just a tricky area for a chubby person who has always worked to hide weight to flaunt it.
Pregnancy work clothes--I made it to 4 1/2 months before I had to start wearing maternity clothes, which was awesome. Since then, I've made it through the school year with two pairs of slacks and twelve tops. Surprisingly, none of my students have commented on my small wardrobe. I like to think they are distracted by increasing girth. Mama Cool has sewed me three tops, but I'll save that fashion show for later!

So, there you are, my few fans, pregnant Amanda pictures. I hope you enjoyed.
