There she blows, round, in-the-way, and expanding by the minute. This week I was greeted with a red, itchy belly, which only added to my growing paranoia about getting stretch marks. Not to worry though, Mama is slathering up 3-5 times a day with cocoa butter and a blend of cocoa/macadamia/almond oil. Needless to say, I smell like a tropical island. Little miss is gonna come out and be really surprised when she realizes she’s in the Midwest and not somewhere exotic. I’m already getting a sense of her personality based on her movement patterns – she likes her food (like me!) and gets pushy when I haven’t had anything to eat in a while.
