Swimming Lessons

So I decided to be proactive in this whole "Can't Fit Into My Clothes Anymore" thing and take some prenatal exercise classes. This week I started a round of Water Aerobics for the Pregnant and Huge Feeling Whale-Like Lady. Hooray!! I am going Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and I might even sign up for Prenatal Yoga and really rock out my body. Hooray...

Sidenote: Funnily enough, I thought I would feel better about buying a maternity swimsuit than a regular swimsuit (which I have a massive allergic reaction to each and every time~ha). I was wrong. I still had the allergic reaction which involved something like watery eyes, crying and hyperventilating.

So it is fun. The ladies are all pregnant and look all cute and fun and I just look on the chubby side (I know you are all thinking "but it is for a good reason, you are growing a little baby inside of you, it is CUTE"...I know I know I know...but it is still hard and Kyle is still getting sick of me saying "Do you think I am still cute? huh? Do you? Today more than yesterday? or less than yesterday??? huh huh huh????" Hopefully he'll make it through this whole thing still in love with me and hopefully I will make it through an evening at home without falling asleep at 8:15. We'll see.

Oh boy, there's not much fun about the gaining weight and looking weird part of pregnancy, no matter what anybody says. All those women who say they love being pregnant.....I think they're on drugs. Except maybe Angelina Jolie because she looks way hotter being pregnant with twins than I ever did. Keep it up - I think you are awesome to do some working out stuff while pregnant - it will help in the recovery side of things after little Bruce/Skeletor is born.

I really want to do water aerobics but...it is at the wrong time and only the old ladies do it. But maybe this summer i will sign up.
Sorry about the swimsuit thing...ben buys me swimsuits and then i try them on at home i think that helps...but i never enjoy the beginning of swimsuit season.

I don't know if this is encouragement or discouragement but Lisa totally sympathizes with you. She says it is hard to accept the pregnant body no matter how many times you have been pregnant. However, one word of advice: Believe your husband when he says he still thinks you are cute, because he really does.

Lisa and I like your name poll! Feel free to give us any name suggestions and vote on our name poll (sorry, we shamelessly copied your great idea).

The one time I tried water aerobics, I almost drowned due to two factors:

A) My height
B) Water displacement
