16 weeks

A co-worker asked me flat out on Tuesday if I was pregnant. I blundered through some (entirely unconvincing, I'm sure) denial. I think I even tried the line "Are you saying I look fat?" but this co-worker didn't have the grace to be embarrassed. Of course, she was really just making a statement of fact about my belly. So good thing Christmas is soon, because I don't know how much longer I could keep this a secret!
I was really bummed yesterday. For lunch I got beef vindaloo and naan from Royal India, which I luuuurrrrve. And it gave me killer heartburn for the entire rest of the day. So I guess my dear beef vindaloo is out for some time. I'll just eat lots of naan. Ha ha
We leave tonight for Dh's parents! Yay for Christmas!
My belly continues to pop out more and more, though all my maternity pants remain too large. And I moved up another cup size.

Pictures! We need pictures of that growing belly (and boobies too I guess)!!

Try raw almonds to releive heartburn. They really worked for me when I first started getting it, but now unfortunately I've moved on to Tums.

Books I'd recommend:
Birthing from Within by Pam England
The Water Birth Book by Janet Balaskas (even if you are not having a water birth it is full to the brim with very helpful useful information)

Happy Holidays!
