24 Weeks...I am still amazed.

Every few months I write a post that starts with apologies for the long silences between blogs. No more apologies. Apparently, this is who I am as a blogger. Sporadic, and mildly dependable at best. I'm going to be okay with that.

But here are some updates on what's happened in the past month.

The shower game is over. I tried it out this morning for the first time in a long time, and I found that no matter how far forward I bend, my pieces are just no longer visible without the use of a mirror. Which at this point is a sight I can probably do without anyway.

I've started experiencing those coveted, random acts of kindness towards pregnant women that I was beginning to think only existed in mythology. I have to admit that upon discovering I was pregnant, I was really looking forward to this star treatment. And then kind of bummed when it didn't happen right away. But now, most people are nice. Probably because they feel sorry for my waddle. The one exception is the grocery store. Why are people always so terribly rude in the grocery store? It does not matter how much I waddle, or how much I hold my aching back as I meander down the aisle, people still shove past with nary an "excuse me." Well people, I will remember that when I'm waltzing down the aisle with two cute babies in a few months, and you want to coo at them and ask me whether they're boys or girls. Payback's a bitch.

The most exciting recent development, which probably relates to the whole kindness from strangers thing, is that my belly has become unmistakeably, hugely massive. And I love it.

The day I found out I was pregnant...

A few weeks later...
Later still...
...And later (I will need to become a better historian when these babies are born...dates, weeks, or even months might be nice...)
And just a few weeks ago...
The babies are growing.

hey! I'm just a month behind you! Expecting twins after spending most of my adult life convinced I couldn't ever bear children. My belly is finally beginning to resemble that of a pregnant woman and not of one simply full of gas and last night's dinner, so that's nice. Definitely beginning to notice random acts of kindness. Which, in turn, makes me feel a bit more kind, Also nice.

And feeling like I should borrow your first paragraph for my blog - sporadic, mildly dependable at best. I couldn't have summed up how I am feeling about my blogging any better.

I'm so glad to see you are taking a lot of photos. It will be really fun to look back on them. I think we will have to do a belly photo shoot soon with my new lens!!

FYI you should be able to get the dates of the photos by looking at the EXIF info for the originals (assuming they're digital).

Best of luck with the rest of the pregnancy!
