12 Weeks

Wow. Wednesday I will be at 13 weeks in the ole pregnancy. And sometimes I think to myself, am I really pregnant? Other than feeling tired and extremely hungry all the time (is that really a change, though? I can't really say) I haven't felt super prego.

Anyhoo, luckily one of my coworkers gave me a gift today and I can't wait to share it with all of you. It is a book titled "Pregnant & Beautiful", published in 1985 and must have Rivaled What to Expect When You're Expecting in its day....The opening Paragraph reads as such:

It's satisfying to see a radiant woman who looks as lovely when she's pregnant as when she is not pregnant. Does she look better because she feels better, or does so look great because she keeps herself looking nice and feels good about herself? Experience has shown that any woman who keeps up her appearance feels better......This book is designed to help you choose fitness over flab and beauty over blahness during your pregnancy.

Luckily, the book will teach me such things as What Colors to Wear, What Textures to Wear, Beauty During Pregnancy, How to Apply My Makeup and Do My Hair, which are all things that have been BURNING questions in my soul. How can I be more attractive? Thank goodness I have this bbok to assist me....and you....

Too bad I don't have a scanner at work. Just you wait....

Wow! 13 weeks...you are coming along. What a find of a book. I think that you are going to really rely on that book as you are trying to decide what to wear and how to look when pregnant. Hehehe! Cannot wait to hear more.

Dangit, I missed out! I'm sorry I didn't have this for any of my pgs; my makeup routine suffered horribly.

that's funny. I can't wait to see what other "words of wisdom" come out of this book. :-)
