We all need to remember that I’m six feet tall and this was my first pregnancy.  I had a lot of room to store a baby. I bought maternity clothes, but I didn’t really need them.  I wore some mighty ugly stretch pants to work and a polo shirt.  I remember one of the customers that came into the place I worked discovering I was pregnant, he asked when the  baby was due and I said, “Next week.”  He looked at me shocked while he told me he had no idea I was pregnant, which I thought was pretty weird since he came in nearly every week.  Basically, I just looked like I had gained a lot of weight and was a giant block.  But, have no fear, my belly popped out just fine with all the other pregnancies and there was no doubt I was carrying a baby.

And here’s the first  baby.  She weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces, she was tiny compared to her brothers.  I’d like to apologize to her right now for this photo.  I always thought it looked like a Johnson’s baby powder commercial.
