prego belly size is in the eye of the beholder

As I was leaving a networking event early Friday morning, I was pulling out of the parking deck and preparing to pay the gate attendant. As I approached the booth, there were two women to greet me . The first was a mature, petite, plump spanish woman with a great smile and loud voice.  The second was a young black girl with a slender figure and perfect hair.  The Spanish woman peers into my window as I hand her the ticket, and she comments on my ever growing tummy, “ooooo–you have a baby in there—hmmm?”  I grinned and gave the standard, “actually it is 2” response.  She squealed with delight and Spanish love: “God bless! blessings!” <she is faking a heart attack>  The young black girl peers into my window as I reveal that I am 19 weeks along — she takes a look to see the tummy…at the exact same time, they say this:

Spanish woman: You look so small for twins! You look so fabulous!

Black girl: You are so big! I cannot believe you are going to keep growing! You will be huge by the time you deliver!

So, you be the judge — and just for statistics sake, last week I measured 23 weeks the day before I was 19 🙂
