I am a little worried...I am only 20 weeks 
& my stomach is getting HUGE!!!  
I can't even see my feet!
My ankles? 
So swollen they look alot like hers:

And all the magazines say my hair should
 be thick & lustrious, but really it is breaking off
all over & more white hairs are popping
up everyday! 

This is what I look like every morning:

(Bing Images)

But instead of being down about it I am trying to
 remain optimistic.
It really is perfect timing. 

By my calculations in about a month I
should look EXACTLY like this:

And then who will be the loved one?
See so it is not all bad.

The only worry April...
I think I will be more like this guy:
(Bing Images)

The only good thing I can think of about that is... will save me $225 because I won't
need to spring for one of these :
(loaded shopper)

And just because I am feeling EXTRA nice today I will even link you to the coffee table right HERE so you can pick one up for that someone extra special on your list.

Wow - I mean just wow! I'm refering to the table of course. YOU look marvelous!

Oh, oh, oh. I am climbing back up my chair off the floor with shrieks of laughter...the table did me in. No, Santa did and it was downhill from there. You are so funny and I seriously love you to pieces. Especially since you see your usefulness in your ever growing corpulence of beauty.

(I have always wanted to use the corpulence in a sentence yet it's meaning is not always meant nicely so I changed it in a nice way so I could use it).

Remember, CHOOSE to love me in the full knowledge that I am a geek.

P.S. I have no doubt in my mind that you are adorable pregnant and that belly is probably just perfectly sweet!

Shelley said...

Oh My Goodness, Libbie. Laughing out loud. You're awesome. :)
Can't wait to see the belly tomorrow!! :)

Nezzy said...

You are one funny pregger mama sweetie!!! Heeehehehe!!!! My sweet DIL always blossomed and people thought she was due at 4 1/2-5mo. along.

Ya'll have the most marvelously blessed day!!! :o)

MS/AC Fan said...

I just hope if you do look like that guy in April- you wear a shirt & bra! :)
Too bad I'll be with you with the sumo look in April, and I'll still have 6 weeks to go!

-stephanie- said...

Oh darn... the tables are sold out. ;o)

Love your sense of humor.

April said...

I have officially had my laugh for the day... I'm laughing with you, not at you I promise.

Oh My Goodness!

I've been away and missed the post that you are expecting! Congratulations my friend!

You are so funny and thanks for the link for the table...but no thanks...ewwwww! LOL

The Sumo Wrestler looks like someone beat his chest with a kitchen spatula...not that I know what that would look like!


Angela said...

Seriously girl..I'm WORRIED, I didn't even know you had a precious one in that belly of yours'..I was so confused when I came here and questioned what you were talking about,,than I'm like..oh my,,she's having a baby!! Yahoooo!!!

Carmel's Closet said...

Hi Funny Lady, Congratulations!
We live in a tiny house crammed to the rafters, but I think I will have to make room for a sumo wrestler table! I remember 20 weeks preggers with my daughter, your post resonates totally.
Have a lovely weekend.

clau said...

Oh my God,are you expecting???I' m so haaaaaapppppyyy what beautiful news!I'm sure you are and will be gorgeous as always!!
kisses to you my friend and congratulations!!

Shabbygalsnest said...

Hi Libby, Congratulations!!! Tnanks for stopping by my blog. Don't worry about your son and the not wanting to kiss you thing. My boys still tell me they love me and give kisses at 19 and almost 21. So there is hope it won't end for awhile! Traci

Victoria said...

This is so funny! By the way, your belly is adorable! And is that a table, or is my husband looking for something under that couch?
I just strongly advise that you don't try sneaking down the chimney to deliver toys... :)
I'm with everyone else... I really needed this today!

Marla said...

Um.....please....and I mean NOT ever buy me that table. Ever.

Ok, listen up gorgeous. You are half way through with your what, 12th kid, so your buddha belly is right on target. Ok, maybe it's as big as a target but this only means you can sit and drink coffee, then have somewhere to place your coffee cup.

I jest, I jest. Libbie McGillicutty, you are an absolutely beautiful woman, with or without a bulging baby belly. Yes, as a matter of fact, I do have the gift of saying all the wrong things at just the right time. You're welcome.

Cheryl~ZanyMayd said...

Oh, I remember Wwwaaayyyy Back, when I was Preggos with My Last (son & 3rd baby) I was not due till the End of November & by July, people were asking if I was due soon.... Loved the post, Hate the Table.... LOL
btw, I was looking for yours or Kate's address & can not find it in my emails, could you send me either or both....
Thanks Lady ~ Take Care

Can do mom said...

You silly thing, you! I'm sure you're gorgeous but what's even more important is that gorgeous baby growing within.

I'll pass on the table too, just like everyone else (so far!) Wouldn't you be surprised to find it under your tree this Christmas?!

Hugs to you!

koralee said...

You make me laugh my friend....I remember those are beautiful! xoxoxo

Liz said...

LOL! I know how you feel. I gained so much weight at the beginning of my pregnancy, way more than I probably should have. But luckily, third trimester I barely gained any, I still got bigger but it was all baby! Hang in there!

Chrissy said...

OMG, OMG, OMG! I'm so excited for you! And I'm quite sure you look absolutely beautiful!

Karen said...

Laughing...don't send me that table for Christmas! But your sweet lump is adorable, I don't care what you say!

I'm excited for you! (My feet were bad, too.)

Kimberly said...

Hello! Fave! You are fun-ny girl. I could definitely see stopping by your blog for a laugh again soon. :)

Rosie said...

OH MY WORD....giggle...You Are SOOO funny...I LOVE this post, but most of all, I love you and that sweet sister...give her a BEAR HUG for me.
Yes, it would be a little piece of heaven, to see you sweet ladies ringing my door bell...someday?

thanks for the coffee table link...hmmmm...maybe I can get a couple for the shop ;D...I'll save you one...xoxo...Rosie

karen said...

Oh dear lib you do make me giggle.
But I'll take your big belly and match it.
( sat on the floor to play with river last night and had to wait for hubby to come home cause i couldn't get back up lol)
And I'll swap your swollen ankles and grey hair for itchy scalp, itchy boobs and never ending morning sickness.
It's a good job we can laugh at it all isn't it.
sending BIG (((((((hugs)))))))

NENSA MOON said...

Hahaha... this is so funny!
I love to see the sumo guys under the table... stunning!!

Thanks for the very nice post Libbie!
Have a wonderful weekend.
nensa said...

Haha! Enjoyed the post and yelped with laughter at the table picture. I looked like a beached whale when I was pregnant. I didn't see my feet for months and they are huge! Love your humour. Visiting from the LBS Tea Party

ZippyChix said...

Great pictures!! No worries, you will see your feel again in 20 more weeks...just enjoy the ride:)Let people spoil you! Stopping in from LBS tea party. Enjoying your blog.

Classic NYer said...

Wow... you have a wicked sense of humor... and I love that table!

Stopping by from LBS!

ilovemyhouse said...

Well you had me at the elephant,but it got better and better.I even showed hubbie, its soooo funny and i recognize a lot (without being pregnant, but after a delicious dinner).Have a peaceful sundaynight.

Kathy English said...

You are too funny! I like your title, being a "middle" child, but not the "middlest" sister. Visiting form Lady Blogger's Tea Party.

The table is hilarious - how on earth do you find something like that, and there's just no way you could possibly compare! Though I understand completely - Heck. My kids are over the age of 5 and I STILL can't see my feet! Don't despair, though :-) As long as the person doing the pedicure can see your feet, you'll be all right :-)

Holly said...

Oh my - that was a nice chuckle. The thought of that lovely table anywhere makes me cringe and puts a smile on my face at the same time.

Nicole said...

Love it!! I feel the same way about my size & hair (it was soo nice with Liam) - not this one :)
