Get in my belly!

Austin Powers will always be one of my favorite movies. I know, I'm so weird. Forgive me if you don't get the title reference, but I think it's hilarious.

Anyway, I decided last night would be a good time to start documenting the belly growth. Today marks the beginning of week 14, so I think every Hump Day's post will be a "Belly Watch." So, if you find yourself getting annoyed by my bazaar written antics, at least come back on Wednesdays to witness my ginormity for yourself.

I read on Fit Pregnancy that if you are documenting the belly bump, it's best to always wear the same pants. Since I LIVE in my Victoria's Secret sweatpants, I thought I would just wear those - plus, I'm confident I will still be able to hike them over my arse in 6 months. Anyway, Joe thought they were appalling for public consumption and made me change into my "nice black pants" that "make my butt look nice." So, here you have it folks - a nice rump and a bump to boot:

I would like to give a shout-out and props to my mom, Joette, for taking brilliant care of my umbilical cord when I was a baby. As a result, I do have a really great belly button. But it's a CAVE - total 100% ridiculous innie! Seriously, if I lost 60 lbs. I think it would touch my spine. Here's why this matters: I fear that my belly button won't ever "pop" while I'm pregnant. (You know what I mean, right? If you don't, go here. And by the way, I think the women that tape theirs down are crazy! It's so cute!)

I feel like I should explain myself (and you can't judge me here, people!). In my personal opinion, women who are obviously pregnant but without the "popped" belly button just look fat. I'm sorry, they do! But the women with "popped" belly buttons look all cute and adorable and pregant, even if they are hugely, enormously pregnant. So, my fear is that I will be the fat pregnant girl with the un-popped belly button. Do you think they make prosthetics for that? I'm not kidding!

These are the things that keep me up at night. Well, that and the pee.

I hope you enjoyed the little trip I like to call "How my mind works." It's a very strange world, indeed. :) Y'all come back now, ya' hear?
