Boobie-do: A woman whose stomach sticks out farther than her boobies do (via urban dictionary)

I am officially a boobie-do... and for the first time in my life, I can say that with pride!

Though I've always been on the heavier side, I have been blessed/cursed with an ample "rack", so achieving boobie-do status would require a lot of cheetos on my part.

For a while, I was really close to being a boobie-do pre-pregnancy, so I had to train myself to walk around with my gut sucked in constantly, while I tried to remediate the weight gain.

It is SUCH a relief not to have to worry about this anymore, though I must say it has been quite an adjustment learning to just let it all hang out...

The weirdest part of it all is that I haven't gained a single pound from this pregnancy so far! I've actually lost over 10 lbs (which none of you probably believe from the pictures.. but ask the doctor, it's true!). I know most of the weight loss has to do the morning sickness I've been experiencing (yes... I'm STILL running to the bathroom after meals) and I'm sure I'll be gaining all of it back soon enough, but what I'm wondering is why I seem to be getting lighter, when my belly is obviously getting larger! The doctors say baby is perfectly healthy, so I'm definitely not going to complain. (I've read articles about other women losing 40 lbs during their pregnancy -- sign me up for that, please!)

Anyway, the point I'm making is that I am super happy to embrace my boobie-do, as it's a constant reminder that baby is growing and is that much closer to entering this crazy world of ours.
