Learning to Waddle

It's Jessica! I've officially joined the Nieman blog. I figure its time to blog about being pregnant, since having a baby is a pretty big deal. I am finally getting to the stage where my body feels pregnant and I look like I'm joking when I walk, or waddle, as the case may be. I was trying to stay relatively hip and cool looking for as long as possible, but when the way you walk makes your toes look like frenemies who can't stand the sight of each other its difficult to maintain that image; one foot points to the east, one to the west, and my belly seems to guide the direction of my body (she's taking over already). But to be honest, I love being pregnant and I had no idea how much fun it would be to shop for baby clothes. It's like dolls all over again! Except that I won't be able to feed this one the same plastic dinner every night and put it in the closet when I'm tired of it. Other than that, I don't forsee any big differences...

Here is the best belly shot I could find of myself. I was debating putting a bare belly shot up, but I could not determine whether that was completely inappropriate or not. Any thoughts?

In this picture there is also more evidence that Dave is the best husband (see below blog for exhibit A). He made the giant happy birthday letters for me, and bought me a beautiful wedding band for my birthday.
