What to do...

So I'm kind of having a panic moment today. Each day I feel like my belly may be growing a little, but sometimes it's hard to tell. Actually, I still have days I wake up and I feel like I don't look as big as I think I should, and it makes me worried. I'm ashamed to admit it, because it's completely ridiculous to gauge if everything is alright based on the size of your belly.

Today was like any other day. I actually felt like maybe I had grown slightly (I mean, I am 17 weeks today). Where did my panic moment come in? Well, I am a bridesmaid in my youngest sister's wedding next Saturday. I was fitted for my dress BEFORE I found out I was pregnant. So I tried on the dress a couple months ago, and it was actually kind of loose in the bodice (it's strapless, fitted at the top, and then bells out). I figured, what a perfect dress to wear when you're pregnant because the fitted portion is above your belly. Little did I know.

I had my mom send me the dress last week because I thought I might need to have it altered because it was too big. I finally got around to trying it on today, and let's just say it was a bit of a struggle to get it zipped. The good news is we did get it zipped (finally). The bad news is it is a little bit difficult to breath. I can just imagine being at the front of the church, struggling to breath, in 3 inch heels. Can't wait. It has always been a huge fear of mine to pass out in a wedding...hopefully that fear will not be realized.


  1. It's crazy how you don't think you're getting that big until you try on clothes that used to fit. I'm glad you can still squeeze yourself into it and I hope that you maintain consciousness for the wedding!!!

  2. No worries my friend! Everyone grows differently!!! Please post a belly picture soon! And, good luck with the whole wedding weekend and your dress. :)

  3. Oh Erica! I can't imagine! You will be fine though. Hopefully this pastor isn't long winded! Give Lacey a hug for me--so exciting!
