I can't believe that I forgot to post about my surprise that DH gave me!!! I'm awful because it was really, incredibly sweet. So I have been struggling with my appearance and the whole weight gain thing.....hubby tells me everyday that I'm beautiful but I feel fat and frumpy most of the time. Regular clothes don't fit and neither do maternity clothes - I mean, NO ONE told me that my excess skin was going to fill out aka my pannus. It's gross - really gross and I hate it....I love the bump that is growing up top but having 15 pounds of excess skin hanging is not a pretty sight - okay sorry - I've gone off on a Barbie tangent as usual.
So, I've been feeling pretty crummy. I go from feeling totally ugly to feeling completely undeserving of this pregnancy and guilty for not just basking in the glow of finally being pregnant. That coupled with swelling and fatigue has made me a bit teary for the most part. Well about 3 weeks ago I noticed a strange charge on the hubby's credit card - $160 to be exact. I called him and questioned it, to which he responded, I bought you a present. Now hubby occasionally brings flowers or a card but he isn't a real gift giver with the exception of birthdays, anniversary, christmas. I NEVER expected a gift from him. So he says it won't be ready for a week or so and I'm thinking dear god what has he done??? A week passes by and he is like a schoolboy. I get home from work and he has me sit on the couch with my eyes closed. Out he comes all sing songy and busting at the seams - I open my eyes and started crying immediately. He took my magazine cover and had it framed - it was beautiful and just that he thought of it meant so much to me. Of course then he starts telling me that the woman on that cover is the same person that is standing in front of him only now I'm more beautiful because I'm carrying our child - that he is so proud to be my husband......I can't remember all of it but it was one of the sweetest things anyone has ever done for me - somedays I really love that guy!
