Springing into 20 Weeks

Ah! Spring is on its way and we are officially at the mid-mark of the pregnancy, 20 weeks. Even though it was only 50 degrees yesterday, the sun made it feel warmer. Invigorated, Chris and I took Stu for a walk by the river. Then, we went to Target. We needed some random staples like paper towels, lint rollers, shampoo etc. Yes sir, we are adventurous. Anyhow, as we were checking out, I spotted my FAVORITE Easter candy, Cadbury Eggs. Clearly these are seasonal items, so I decided to grab a few and throw them on the counter at checkout. 

This older woman behind me says, "Oh sweetheart, you are allowed to eat that many eggs because you are eating for two!"

Contradictory emotions surfaced at that point: 

Yay! Someone I don't even know can clearly see I'm pregnant! 


Wait, does she think I'm fat? What if I were not pregnant? Wow. She's got some nerve.

I started laughing out loud as we made our way through the parking lot to the car. I told Chris about my internal dialogue and he laughed too saying, "I bet you $5 you can't make the drive home without eating one of those eggs."

Boy was he wrong. I ate two!
