'Size 18 and falling!' - congratulations.

Carrying a baby is a revelation when it comes to weight. When I put Jo Anna down, or take her out of the sling, I think 'ghod, that's better' and she's only 9lbs...

*Now* she's only nine pounds. Just wait...

And I'm only really a size 18 in the bust. When I buy anything with sleeves or that has to go down over my hips it gets a bit bigger. Still, it's cool.
