A Silly Post

My weight gain is going really well recently: I'm up to 28.5 pounds gained, which is more than I had gained by the end of my pregnancy with Isaac! That's still less than I am "supposed" to have gained, but I'm getting closer. I had a goofy moment yesterday imagining what my friends would say if they could see  now, or even more, at the end of this pregnancy, and this silly poem popped into my head:

 "Ode to Quintuplet Pregnancy Weight Gain"

If you see me on the street, don't stop and stare
'Cause you see twice the woman there
My belly's popped, each leg's a tree,
There's extra fat all over me!
But don't feel sad or think I'm lazy,
This was deliberate - ain't that crazy?
"At least 80 pounds," the doctor said,
And I've got her orders stuck in my head.
There are "Quints on Board," my shirt will say,
So I'll smile at you and be on my way.

A snapshot of the future? (minus the really nice kitchen and pregnant belly, which in my case would just be extra skin left over from carrying the quints) I'm giving this mom a break because clearly she is on her first cup of coffee. She'll reel them all in and impose some order shortly.
