A healthy eggplant am I, shiny and beautiful, soaking up the sun, perfect in my taut roundness.<br><br>
Sounds silly, but it's working for me! I came up with it yesterday, when I got out of the shower, looked at my profile in the mirror, and suddenly thought, "I can't do this today!" I felt so heavy and overburdened and stretched. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> But I had to get to work and forced myself to keep moving. As consolation, I put on my favorite, dark purple, very soft maternity outfit, and looking in the mirror again suddenly thought "eggplant". Why, I am just the right shape and texture after all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

EB ~ aw! you're my latest hero! I'm not pg yet, but will no doubt remember this post of your's when my glorious/challenging/anxious/miraculous pg days come to me & dp (gods & goddesses willing). Thats such a cool analogy btw. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Just fyi, these days, when i glance in the mirror sideways, I'm inclined to go grab a towel to stuff under my clothing, just to keep my hopes up! Guess its the the "grass is always greener" thang in action, eh?!<br><br>
Happy eggplant days to you mama!

My partner and I sometimes tell each other stories in bed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> so yesterday I said, "Once upon a time, there was a sexy eggplant..." He said, "...and a very confused farmer...uh...let's have a different story." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">
