No, I’m not pregnant… just fat! What else is there to say?

Sleeping Like A Baby

I have a 3 year old daughter and a soon-to-be 7 month old son and only birthed large babies (my first was 9 pounds, and my second was 10 pound – both born via c-section).

  • Every day I try on a needless five outfits…and I end up not caring in the long run.
  • I’m constantly asked “What are you having?” and told “How exciting you’re expecting again!”
  • The only response I can provide is “No, I’m not pregnant… just fat.” What else is there to say?
  • Honestly I have not started to diet. I know, shameful.
  • And I do not exercise.

It took me 2 years after having my first child to become comfortable with my body again. I remind myself of this every day. In time my body will go back to its old self (aside from mass amounts of stretch marks).

I think I may need to start a separate tummy-tuck savings account.

Bobbie has a beautiful daughter and son and they are living proof that dreams come true.

someone asked me just the other day. as a matter of fact, two people asked me in the same day. I replied, I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat.

One person apologized profusely.
The other person, a cashier at my supermarket, says, “Oh I thought you were because your stomach was so big.”

Who says that to people?!!!!!

Ive been asked a hundred times and it’s been 7 years since I had my 2nd son,at the time of his birth my core muscles at the time didn’t join back together back together, I eat healthy and excersise and it still hasn’t helped. Apart from surgery (which I do not want, or could afford) I don’t know what to do, …….. Although when people have asked me “ooo are you pregnant ” I have replied ” I was” they don’t actually know what to say … !!!!! X

must be thought to are actually part of the product range of little princess mathildewith the low overheads, easy making and use of in the area available fabrics, a multitude of earthbag general contractors watch this of constructing as an easy way in order to supply short lived protection correct natural disasters. Earthbag houses are stronger as well self-sufficient as compared to the bed sheet tents that are distributed evenly to finally out of place heirs, But they are more expensive. Khalil
