And then last night, after some bedroom activities, I passed my full length mirror and stopped to examine my very bloated tummy.  My husband said "you are just bloated and not pregnant right?"  LOL.  Most people would probably be mad.  It was actually very funny.  And considering the days of bloat I was starting to get worried.  I have had to take so many Pg tests over the years by just about every doctor I had ever seen.  But, I happen to have an over the counter test at home and took it just to make sure.  (I had a weird period last month so I started to get worried).  Luckily I am not but I never thought I'd hear my husband say "youre not pregnant right" lol!

Well... :)... It's good to get a good laugh out of things, isn't it? Better to laugh than to cry, I say... //^_^\\
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

LOL I have the same prob at the moment. My tummy is sticking out a mile that I look pregnant. At times I think it is funny but I still wish it would go away because other times I feel fat. I also took a pregnancy test last week just in case but deep down I knew I wouldnt be.

I was just thinking we could get away with parking in those "expectant mothers" parking spots they have now - nobody would be able to argue with my belly the way it is! (Don't worry -I wouldn't cheat on the spot as I know how hard it is for people who need them)...but I could get away with it -easily...lol!!!

In the past, I've had people offer me a seat on the bus - so, you see, there are some benefits to our condition!

Okay, thanks for bringing this up. I often feel like I look like I'm expecting. I'm not obese but get very bloated depending on my situation. I'm learning to live with it, but it's not fun. Your not alone. We are past the pregnancy stage, vasectomy took care of this so we always know it Crohns.
