In a society where privacy is ever so quickly dwindling 140 characters at a time and the list of taboo topics are sparse now that twerking has been added to the dictionary, you will find throughout your pregnancy that nothing is off-limits. Suddenly your growing waistline is everyone's business. Not just your mother-in-law and nosy coworkers but the strangers you encounter every day will become suddenly and disturbingly concerned about your mothering endeavors.

None of those yet. Although a coworker did look at me differently after I told him and said, "Yeah, your boobs really are much bigger already." ::rolls eyes:: I mean thanks for the compliment but....

Best, Jessie
