Turns out I’m feeling so much better! All it took was realizing just how beautiful it is to stand on the scale and discover that I’ve already gained seventeen pounds! I can’t wait to shop for panties that have more square footage than a pool cover!

Recovering from all that exhausting sobriety
Eat Your Heart Out, Trading Spaces
Dude. All I’m saying is, google is forever. I’m just saying there could come a day when an almost 6 ft tall, grown-ass pregnant woman wearing a pink tutu, a tiara and carrying a magic wand, might….just might, cringe a little bit, when this gets shown at her 70th birthday party. I’m just saying. But in the meantime, you are awfully cute. ‘sides, when you’re seventy, you’ll be all what-was-my-name-again??? anyways. So party on.
My suggestion for a name – Amelia.
freakish but so cute
OH MY GOD HEATHER.
hmm .. indeed dooce is looking rather pink lately
Freaking Awesome! You are absolutly glowing, or maybe you’ve had too much fairy dust.
I almost peed my pants thats so amusing!
It’s almost worth entertaining the idea of getting pregnant again so I too can have a Tutu/tiara belly shot. You Rock!
That is the Best. Thing. Ever!
You are such a nut…my kind of nut, of course.
I can’t even explain how much I needed to see those photos today!! LMAO!! Priceless!
you one craaazy lady!
But I so love that tummy. It’s beautiful!!
love the second photo! totally made my day!
Love the new haircut!
I assume that Leta was in charge of the creative direction for this photo shoot.
I was not expecting to see that today. Thank you for putting a little joy back into the winter.
Also, yay for giant asses!
You have a little crazy in your eyes! I’m glad you’re feeling better!
I love these pictures! And they are even more funny when I think about your previous Week photos. Very silly and very awesome!
Glad you’re feeling more… chipper. This is the first shot where I can tell you’re definitely pregnant. The others all just look like my everyday buddhabelly.
Those pictures are hysterical! And by hysterical,I of course, mean disturbing. Lucky for you, crazy is hereditary! You look awesome!
Oh my goodness, those pictures just made my day! You’re too funny.
Okay, those are great pictures! I busted a gut here at my desk.
Although I have to ask, what Miss Leta said when she saw that you were using her fairy princess props.
You look fabulous!
You stole the costume from my sister-in-law! She did that exact idea at around 32 weeks for Halloween! You look great, on the computer.
that is the fucking funniest photo i have ever seen in my life.
and p.s: i gained a pound a week for the entire 40 weeks when i was preggers. and i threw up for 3 months. and i’m 5’4″. so suck it up, sista.
I am guessing you will not be showing this to Leta until she is 45 and has completed many years of therapy.
We think this look directly references the little known “20 week crazy pocket window” where your hormones inexplicably make you giddy and full of glee. No worries, this too shall pass…
(Although we really dig it on you)
Joy and Janet
Did Leta dress you this morning?
Whoa, you have the crazy eye in these pictures! I wonder if it’s pregnancy or the tutu that causes the manic gleam.
Now… when do we see Chuck in the tutu?
The. Greatest. Photos. Ever.
Was this Leta’s idea? She must have been thrilled that you were in something pink and sort of related to a princess costume.
These pictures are great and you look great! 17 pounds… Psssh. That’s a “food baby”!
Wow, if pregnancy energizes me to that point of ecstasy (tutu included), I might have to give those hormones a try. I hope these photos end up in the new baby book.
Oh my GOD! those pictures absolutely made my day. I assume it is false excitement since pregnancy is hell, but the previous pics were so forlorn, so I say bring on the false enthusiasm! Huzzah!
What? 17 pounds? Where the heck are you storing those? Cuz you look great!
I think you look great. I would have killed to look that good pregnant!
Ok, this could possibly be your best post ever! Hilarious!
L… Leta? Is that you? Have you temporarily possessed your mother’s body, young lady?
Best post ever!
LMFAO! Looks like someone got into Leta’s princess toys. This made my day!
Whoa-you’re a beautiful mama with a great sense of humor– goodgrief w/ your height you hardly look prego!By the way your daughters room looks Fabulous.I found your site(thru-thepioneerwoman) yesturday I’ll keep reading! no more magazines — blogs are bettter.
The hub + I have – two boys and two girls….our baby is four +a 1/2-
Wow I hardly remember 20 weeks!
Oh.My.F’ing.god!!! How hilarious! The sun BETTER start shining soon or else you’re gonna loose it… oh wait.. you already have! LOL
Okay, I knew you were funny. But this is just freaking hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!
Gorgeous but…that’s going to haunt me in my dreams. Forever.
aww man, you’re only doing this to appease the anonymous peepers who think the world is full of butterflies, unicorns or flying pigs.
And these people choose to berate you on YOUR blog for not smiling in your pictures (screw them) and they don’t realize that you can do whatever you’d like on YOUR blog… great pic, a little odd, but funny…
I can honestly say that this is the first smile that has appeared on my face today. Thank you for that.
You Rock. That is all.
17 pounds? Whatever. I’d like to know where they are. I’ve never had kids, AND I’m tall–and I think my babyless belly could probably give yours a run for the money. Not that I really want to give anything a run, hence the belly. You’re too cute.
Your pictures rock! I will be laughing all day after seeing them.
OMG love the sarcasm! I can’t stand it! It’s an art and you are the master. In your face haters!
This post made my morning. Good luck finding pool cover sized panties, though. I’e already snagged most of them up to cover my 24-week pregnant ass.
