I posted a picture of me from the side, because at the time i had the early pregnancy bloat, before the morning sickness caused me to LOSE 15 lbs.... and wrote:
"Guys, I should probably let the cat out of the bag and stop being smug and mysterious because several folks have asked. Yes, I am. I'm only 5 weeks but I'm #$(*&$ing showing already so i figured I'd say something before it became painfully obvious that no, i'm not fat, I'm incubating. :P
Luckily, I truly had the stomach flu the week of Thanksgiving and one of my friends who is an MD wrote "stomach flu my heiny, you're knocked up" and my response was something like HAHAHAH what would make you think that? with a private message immediately sent saying "HOW THE HELL DO YOU KNOW". So I was initially HOPING that the true stomach flu would be an explanation for the exhaustion and barfiness.... that I could hide until I was about 12 weeks. No. After she wrote that, I got a flurry of private messages and public postings saying stuff like "WELL??????"
