Today I had an epiphany. I realized that (as this is my first pregnancy) every day I will be the biggest I have ever been in my life. Every day my baby (and therefore my belly) will grow. Maybe sometimes by an immeasurable amount and maybe sometimes by a lot. But isn't that a crazy thought??

The last few days I feel like my stomach has doubled in size, and it's such an awe-inspriring process. I find myself obsessing and comparing my belly to other people's when they were as far along as me (especially my sister as I have tons of belly pictures of her). I wonder if I am bigger or smaller, if my baby is 'sitting' higher or lower. It really consumes my thoughts 75% of the time (realistically probably more). I'm reading 'The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy', which is so hilarious, and the author says the same thing - pregnancy consumes you. I always figured it would be something amazing and wonderful but never THIS amazing or THIS wonderful. I probably sound really sappy, but I think if you've been there, you'd agree, and if you haven't, you will agree one day.

Hopefully I'm not boring anyone with my pregnancy ramblings, because I imagine there will be lots more rambling and epiphanies to come over the remaining 6+ months of this pregnancy!

P.S. - In case anyone was curious, still no Baby Tallent!! And congrats to Christina and Todd on your pregnancy! Is it just me or is everyone I know pregnant??
