Totally agree with Maggie! That is such a cute bump. How much longer till you tell?

Long story short, my husband is worried that if they know I am preggers and he could possibly take paternity leave, they wont renew his job for the next year. Forcing him into a job he doesn't want to work.

And yes, I am pretty sure most people suspect Smile I have been totally muffin topping my jeans and trying to make it look like I have just gained ALOT of weight, but Im not sure how many people are still buying it Smile I was cornered at playgroup a couple of weeks ago by a couple ladies and asked point blank if I was pregnant. I pretended to be offended that they thought I looked preggers. Gonna have to apologize to those ladies soon.

Oh, and thanks! I feel like I am just hugely fat, but probably cause everyone is afraid to comment on the bump.

Might be able to tell as soon as tomorrow!!!!

DH is getting all his permanent medical restrictions for his job (he was injured last year) and we are hoping that they will make it so they cant send him back to his old job that he doesnt want to work. So they would have to keep him where he is (he is a govt employee so they cant lay him off or fire him).

Anyways, he finds that out today!!!! I am just waiting for him to call. If the restrictions dont go the way we are thinking, then I will have to wait another week or two.

Great baby belly! It is pretty funny that you can't tell people and are acting offended. Love it!

So what were the results?

It was a no go Sad

Never thought we would be disappointed at a lack of restrictions when this whole thing started. They probably wont let him go back to his old job, but they wont come right out and say it. His only restriction is that any transfer has to be approved by health services, which really gives his boss no guidelines at all. Crappy.

He is going to talk to his immediate boss on Monday (who ironically is one of the few people who know we are pregnant), to see what he thinks will happen. In the meantime, I am still wearing my one big sweater that hides a bit Smile

Aw, sorry it didn't go the way you'd hoped. You get to tell in 2ish weeks, no matter what, though?

Your poor thing having to keep this a secret!!! I would so crack under that pressure!!!! I hope DH gets his assignment soon so that you can start telling people. I love your baby bump you look great.

I feel so guilty. This is my 2nd pregnancy and I haven't taken a single belly picture. The 2nd child syndrome has started already!!! And I feel guilty about it all ready!!!
