Week 15 ~ Popcorn Ants, Fried Alligator and Exponential Growth
I awoke early Saturday morning with a start and the question "What the ----?" on my lips. Someone was popping popcorn inside my belly. I lay still for a few moments trying to figure out what exactly I was feeling. Was Bump blowing bubbles in my tummy? Did the ants in his ant farm escape and try to trek across my uterus? No, it was just Bump moving around. I was finally feeling his activity and he (or she) is a bouncy creature. Jeff lay asleep oblivious despite my random escape of giggles. I decided to get up and get moving. It was going to be a long day as we had a party that night to host.
The party was fun and I tried to spend as much time as I could visiting with friends instead of playing the perfect host. I found myself answering the same questions over again; the one of if we were going to find out the sex of Bump being the most frequently asked. Yes, we will find out the sex of Bump on May 14th. Overall it was a lovely party filled with Fried Alligator, Boudin, Gumbo and Jambalaya!
I slept most of the day after the party. And when I awoke, I found that my breasts had grown once again. Seriously, they grew while I was sleeping. I have spent close $120 on bras these last few months. I have to buy a new one at least once a month and it appears the one I bought two weeks ago is already fitting too snugly. I haven't had to buy any maternity wear yet. I figured I can extend the lifetime of my pants through the duration of my pregnancy by buying those Belly Bands. My tummy's growth is nothing compared to the speed of growth of my breasts which seems to be increasing at an exponential rate. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm going to give birth out my nipple rather than that special place where Mother Nature intended.
