Soften the blow

Two days ago, I had on one of my favorite maternity shirts, probably for the first and last time because it's short-sleeved yet it's getting colder here each day. As I was walking by the desk of one of our temporary workers, she said, "Oh, I like your shirt!" This caught me off-guard, as I've not ever really talked much with her other than saying hi when we pass in the halls or something. Needless to say, it made my day.

Then today, I was talking with one of my male co-workers and he said out of the blue, "Your hair looks good today! Did you do anything different than normal?" Of course I hadn't, but I actually had noticed myself that my hair looked good today, so it's funny that he would notice and say something...especially being a man.

Those two nice compliments have helped during a week in which I realized that my 3w5d belly shot and my 21w belly shot look--no kidding--absolutely the same. Which translates to me as, "Good grief, you looked five months pregnant even when you weren't pregnant and had just lost 15 pounds." Ouch. So, those compliments softened that blow a little.

Don't you just love unprovoked compliments?! It's not like you were showing off your shirt to someone and they felt like they had to compliment you. Makes you feel really good! I had such cute maternity shirts too, I wish my regular shirts were that cute.
I am so excited to see a baby "bump"! Good job on your weight, I think you are doing a great job!
