Four Days Off and a "Bump"

Well I'm back. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to have four days off. I got to watch my hubby compete. I can't tell you how proud I am of him! His quartet came Fifth (of nine groups) and his chorus came Fourth (of 8 groups)! They got some great feedback that they can use to improve.

I went to the competition with my in-laws. It was great to spend time with them. I am very fortunate that I get along so well with them. Friday was even a decent day. I thought I'd be all melancholy, but somehow I still enjoyed myself. Ryan even remembered about Kenneth without me reminding him. I think we dealt with it in our own quiet way.

A great extra-long weekend was had by all. I didn't even mind when, at a Sunday dinner get-together with some of R's family and their friends, I was outed...

One lady (whom I adore), looked straight at me and said, "So Lindsay, when are you due". I proceeded to blush three shades of red before telling everyone October 15th. Her daugther, said, "What she's preggers? How can you tell?". She then replied, "you can just tell". Well there you have it.

There is a simple reason I think she guessed it is that I've "popped". Already. I got into the shower on Friday, looked down and went "bloody hell, where the heck did that come from?!?" I look pregnant. People who know me notice. Heck, a lady in a purse shop asked me when I was due. Do you know how awkward that question is at 11 weeks? Especially when you haven't even announced it to most people? BUT I had a feeling this would happen. I have a very short torso and the baby has no where to go but out. Straight out. I'm going to be huge.

And I don't mind.

Revel in it hon, revel.

I've just realised that you're due the same time I would have been had my last stuck around....

Glad you enjoyed your 4 days off and rub the "bump" for me!

I agree, revel in it :)

Sorry you were outed, but how wonderful to have already popped. Glad things are still looking good!

You have a belly already?!?! So far I seem to only be expanding in the butt and hips. I'm so jealous!

(But glad you're back!)

Glad you had a good weekend... and thank you for your kind words earlier today. I needed them.

btw... consider yourself nominated for the 'lemonade award' :)

That's so funny that she just guessed! Maybe you have that glow everyone keeps talking about. I am starting to see my junior bump showing through work clothes now. It used to just be visible in sweats and at home. I'm still waiting for a stranger or someone who doesn't know to notice!

Yes, never you mind the delicious baby bump!

I popped really early too with my ds. I'm long torsoed, but I carried extremely low, so it popped by about 10 weeks. I tried to hide it at work as long as I could with blazers, but most people guessed anyway.

Oh yeah, and it didn't help when I had to run out of a meeting to go hurl.

YAY for bumps! Congrats again!

Awe! I love it. I'm so happy to hear of your baby bump. Hope you continue to do well!

Congrats to the Hubby on his chorus competition!

My mom swears you can tell a woman is pregnant in their eyes, I am not convinced...

So glad this pregnancy is moving along well and I cannot wait to watch this pregnancy grow in so many wonderful ways!
