Please Excuse My Belly

I have a problem with my belly. A very distracting problem.

You see, I sit in meetings at work, or across from friends at lunch and I just feel my belly move. Not like "oh the baby is kicking me, but its a secret between it and me".

No. This is like all out "at-any-moment-an-alien-will-emerge' movement. Back and forth. Up and down. Ending with a swift kick to the ribs that could actually make me yelp out loud.

And I can't focus on anything going on, or being said because I feel like I need to apologize for the massive belly between me and the person that seemingly has a mind of its own. And I just wonder if everyone else is looking at the craziness that is taking place.

I am thinking that two things can happen:

1) My belly can get bigger so this baby has more room to do aerobics or whatever dance moves it is practicing. (I'm thinking it is already working on its Diva Doug moves...)

2) I can have the baby.

And as much as I am not jazzed about #1, I REALLY do not want #2 to happen until June 5th, or at the very minimum until I have some diapers bought and maybe a onesie or two. (not even joking--we have nothing yet.).

So if you see me, please don't laugh at my incredibly-jolly belly that seems to be moving to a dance beat that no one else can hear.

As long as the moves are more like mama, dada, auntie Becca and NOT from uncle will all be good! All sounds very normal to me - Enjoy, Love, Mom

Ha!! Your belly will get bigger, but so will Baby H. So, unfortunately, the new "belly dancing" routine you've got goin' on isn't going to get any better. If you can't already, you may even be able to actually identify the body part pushing it's way across your if you think this stage is weird, wait till you see the imprint of a foot sticking out! :)
