17 weeks, 5 days.

If you've got an answer to this perplexing question, I'd love to hear it... hmmmm.
I'm wondering why 10 pounds can feel so big and heavy when I carry it in the form of a growing baby inside me, but when I carry a piece of 10-pound luggage at the airport it feels as if I'm hardly carrying a thing?
Just my thoughts for today.

Try carrying that luggage all day long..bathing with it, sleeping with it, climbing stairs with it, tying your shoes with it, you get the point:) There's your answer..

And then, when you're up to a 35 pound gain before birth, it actually seemed easier to carry than the newborn in that lovely handled carseat! No logic!!
You look beautiful Jody!

Good gracious, lady...you look like you ate a big lunch!:) I'm not so lucky with my pregnancy, I look like I've eaten about 20 big lunches in an hour.

I second, third and fourth everyone's "you're so cute" sentiments

Dear Anonymous~
I DO know the answer to my own question. I was just throwing it out there...having a little fun with my weight gain/pregnancy. Life is too short to always see the negative in everything. I've learned that lesson well.
Thanks for reading my blog.

Sorry, Jody ~ I was just trying to have a little fun with your question ~ hence the Hmmmmmm! I guess that was a bit difficult to decipher in writing. :o

I LOVE your blog and really I meant no offense. You look great!

God Bless!

I have a similar question: Why is it that when a person--say me for instance--thinks it should be no problem to lose 15-20 lbs--it suddenly seems like a huge task when you pick up a 20 lb turkey. =)

I hate to change the subject but do you remember a while back when I told you my daughter also like Hannah Montana, but that I was wondering if someone was trying to "trash up" her image (ala every other young girl "star") based on a recent stage performance? Well, here's more proof that someone is determined not to let this wholesome 15-year-old remain so:

Who would do that to a young lady?

Maybe cos you dont have to carry luggage around for 9 months... lol!

Jane-Jane said...

you can put the luggage down when you reach the counter, you don't take it to bed with you, or have it taking up room when you are eating!

And let me just say, I could gain 10 pounds in one week. How is it that you have only gained 10 pounds!?! You are ADORABLE!!!!

I really do think that women were not really "made" to have children. If they were, they would grow inside a detachable backpack/front pack that you could remove when you needed to rest...or when you needed to sleep...or tie your shoes....or go to the loo. And when the baby was ready to enter the world, the pack could be unzipped and hey presto!

You look fab Jody!

Love to you and your's,

Jane
