Belly Shot...

I have a really cute baby belly right now.  I look like I’m about 5 months pregnant.  The problem is that I’m only 2 months pregnant...

It turns out I’m pregnant with Blue’s baby and dexamethasone's baby.

I can't believe I'm posting a picture of my fat belly on the internet...

I hate taking dex.  It was OK when I took it with Lupron but as soon as I cut the Lupron the side effects have gotten worse.  I wake up hungry every day.  I eat a meal, take my last bite and find that I’m still hungry.  I’m hungry when I’m sleeping.  I’m hungry when I’m nauseous.  I’m hungry ALL THE TIME!

Before, the nausea kicked in I could control the hunger but since I started feeling sick all the time I can’t.  The only thing that makes me feel better is to eat, so I just keep eating.

They say steroids make you really bloated too, so maybe I'll hold out some hope that my belly will magically disapear when I stop the dex in just 13 more days!

I really hope this is a dex problem and not just a pregnancy thing.  If it’s a pregnancy thing I’ll be the size of a whale by the time the baby gets here…


  1. You are beautiful. That is all.

  2. Sorry to share this but having had 3 natural pregnancies, I can confirm it's a pregnancy thing. But it does ease up after the first trimester, thats when most of the growth happens. So, this is normal and dont feel too bad about it. You look great!

  3. You are gorgeous (and I mean that in a totally non-creepy way)! I have to concur with the comment above. I think it is a pregnancy thing. I used to feel the same thing...hunger and nausea at the same time, and I wasn't on dexamethasone during the first trimester. Now that my appetite is back, I am in a constant state of feeling hungry or feeling overly full...sometimes at the same time. If it makes you feel better, you look right on track for two months (if the bumps on my friends and prenatal-yoga buddies are anything to go by). I am a chubby girl, so I can't really offer a comparison. But your belly looks exactly like theirs at two months.

  4. Lol, I agree w/ SIF!!

    And if someone ever stumbles upon that photo w/out reading your blog post... well they are going to be really curious as to who Dex is and how this happened, lol.

  5. LOL! Cool pic!!
    You look beautiful :D

  6. Sooo adorable!!!!
