Married Life


"Dude. Check this out. I'm already showing! Check out my belly. It's, like, sticking out."

"Nah. Your belly always sticks out like that."

Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. 

"What? Did I say something wrong?"

Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.

"What? No! Come here. I'm sorry... It's just that... well, you don't exactly have the flattest stomach in the world..."

Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.

Happy Valentine's Day indeed! Thanks for the laugh. And if it makes you feel any better, I was showing approximately two minutes into my second pregnancy.

Laura | 3:52 AM

Hope you had a great v-Day!

Yep, with each preg you show earlier and more!!!

Hope you are feeling OK.

Sharon | 4:59 AM

Happy VD to you!
Um, he's such a romantic...haha.
If it's any consolation, I'm 16 weeks along with my 2nd and, while I'm not huge yet, I did have a little gut going pretty early on.
HUGE congrats, btw!

Fairly Odd Mother | 5:11 AM

Oh Hal, Hal, Hal, Hal. . .I can just see the 'deer in headlights' look he gave you when he realized he had said something wrong!

Deep Fried Yankee | 5:27 AM

My rationale is that you'd only be showing so early IF your stomach was flat :)

It's me with the flabby chunka belly that no one will know until, well, a couple more weeks.

heh.

"Chirp chirp"- love it.

During a very gossipy conversation with my boyfriend about whether his work colleagues (who work in fashion) are all really skinny:

"so-and-so is quite thin, she's probably about your size. But she goes running every day so she's quite thin, if she didn't she would probably be- um- (freezes in horror at own stupid self) "

Frosty silence (indeed, chirp chirp)

"my size?"

Shannon | 5:34 AM

nods head furiously.

loves the chirps too.. chirp chirp indeed.

mrs. q. | 6:19 AM

Wait until AFTER #2 comes out. My once super flat belly is well, er, doughy? Congrats. I hope the belly button hangs in there.

Alyssa | 7:33 AM

HeHeHe...well, you know, they say right around the time you find out you're pregnant that water weight and bloat starts to build around the belly due to hormones. ;)

ImpostorMom | 7:41 AM

haha, insert foot in mouth.

GoMommy | 7:41 AM

Yeah...I think something to that effect has come out of every married mans mouth at some point or another. Bless their little pea-brained hearts!
Hope you had an awesome Valentine's Day with your boys (and didn't beat down the husband too bad!)

nydancer226 | 8:34 AM

Oh dear...I see by all the chirps that you gave him the appropriate response to those darling comments. I definitely saw a belly this time around right after my + test. Congrats again!

Misfit Hausfrau | 9:34 AM

All I did was go to Seattle for a couple of days and LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED?! Congrats!

mfk | 10:08 AM

hahaha... yeah I think every guy has said something along those lines at one point.

once I was in a bathrobe that came all the way up my neck (very fluffy and poofy), and my boyfriend said, "you look like Jabba the Hutt."

CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP... "no, I meant because you have no neck! not because you're fat! wait, I mean..." yeah.

toyfoto | 10:50 AM

Can you trade HIM in for a bird that sings but doesn't speak?

Anonymous | 11:07 AM

HEY - Anyone who can still wear low cut pants that appear to have a 2 inch zipper hardly looks preggers.

Don't worry about it Rebecca...You look great!

foodiemama | 4:02 PM

kill him, hehe...you always look great! i am so excited for you.

GIRL'S GONE CHILD | 4:20 PM

That cricket, she's alllllllllways a chirpin.... Forever and ever, amen.

Kim Hosey | 4:41 PM

I love it. He sounds like my husband.

In the dressing room:
Me: Does this dress make me look fat?
Him: No more than usual.
Me: ...
Him: What?

In the bedroom:
Me: I just don't want to be exactly like your mom, you know?
Him: (In a come hither tone while making moves) Definitely not my mom.
Me: That's your line? "Definitely not my mom?"
Him: It's a compliment. Hey, where are you going?

Happy Valentine's to you and yours. I'm loving your blog.

PunditMom | 5:31 PM

HA!

Jaelithe | 3:14 PM

Tell me he at least quoted Pulp Fiction later to save face.

the weirdgirl | 9:21 PM

Ouch. Don't you love how they always try to fix things after a blunder like that? It's almost cute.

OK, not really.

David | 10:27 AM

So...............

..........that was bad, right?

I may need to write that down.....

;-)

kittenpie | 1:40 PM

Hal. Dude. Nooooooooo.

(And I'm showing bizarrely early this time, too. It's frightening.)

ufos8mycat | 5:24 PM

Sounds like your husband and I have the same big mouth! Chirp Chirp Chirp

Althea | 5:42 AM

As I read this a bird started chirping right outside my window.
No shit.
