Baby’s TV Debut (weeks 15/16)

I received a phone call on a Wednesday from Keith Kaiser with WDRB in the Morning.  He heard I was pregnant and wanted to do a special on exercising while pregnant. It’s always fun to work with Keith.  And, although I had looked forward to sleeping in the next day, I woke up before the crack of dawn to meet him at my studio at 4:30am. Yes, you read that right, 4:30am.  We filmed several different segments and were on at various times between 5:00-8:30am.  It was my national debut of the baby bump and I can say baby did a pretty good job.

Although bump is starting to show, most people that notice it tell me I have the “cutest little baby bump”.  While it looks huge to me, everyone else says it’s all belly and all in the front.

I actually went to the doctor and she noticed my belly button sticking out.  She said that usually shouldn’t start to happen until the 20 week mark.  However, when she measured me, I measured correctly.  SO…. we discovered that I have a short torso.  What does that mean in baby terms?  It means that all of my baby weight and baby will go straight out from my stomach.  I don’t have much room to grow sideways.  That’s why when I am showing so early.  This makes me believe that I will be directing traffic with my stomach and he/she will have her own seat on a plane.

As long as the baby is healthy, I am happy.  We are supposed to find out the sex on Friday the 13th (yikes)!  Wish us luck!
