Defining Moments

As a pregnant woman, there have only been a few times that I've felt like my appearance was normal, much less sexy. Two of my most defining non-sexy moments occured in the last week.

When I was shopping for maternity clothes, the realization that I was not only shopping for "large" and "stretchy" clothing but that I was better suited to look in the petite maternity section was one of those moments. Shopping for clothing that would fit my short and wide body was definitely a self-esteem booster.

Then, this afternoon, Dennis told me that I "look sexy for a pregnant woman". I know he was trying to be sweet and I appreciate that, but I consider this to be another defining (non)sexy moment. Isn't sexy pregnant woman an oxymoron?

To top it all off, I am posting a picture of my belly at 22 weeks. You've gotta love the tag hanging out from the back of the pants. At least the lighting makes me look tan but I can't tell much difference from the 16 week photo shoot.

I think my exact quote was "you're a sexy little pregnant thing." And, you've never been hotter.
