I don't REALLY care, but it's not great for morale.
NEVER GET INTO THE DRESSING ROOMS! i can't believe how horrible those lights and mirrors make me look! i now buy things, take them home, and return. i really don't have the emotional energy to see my lumps and bumps under those lights. i also live in a house w/ one full-size mirror behind a door in the kids room (the girls love it), so 99% of the time, i don't have to see my full lumpiness!!!
Went shopping w/ hubby yesterday w/ husband and kept getting glimpses of myself in mirrors and windows and such, and was like 'wow- i'm REALLY pregnant!' HA!
i've been blessed though, everyone around here is like '8 weeks? that's, like, wow. you're almost done!'-- love being around people who have had kids!!!
that said, i'm getting the flushed hormones. for the month before i deliver, i have bright red puffy cheeks. i don't get cold, and my face is always red and i look sleepy and puffy and just blech. i'm pretending that i don't look that way, b/c i don't feel that way, but i saw some face pics and was horrified at how RED my face was!
