Yesterday, a far-away friend asked if I was showing yet. I carefully examined my belly, and decided that while I've gained a few pounds, and have had to retire several pairs of trousers, I didn't think that a stranger, even one seeing me naked, would realize that I was pregnant. Fat, yes, but not pregnant.
As if to mock my hubris, today a big belly suddenly popped out. I am now showing. Just like that. Pregnancy is very strange.
