You guys are too nice

I just read all of your thoughtful comments from my last post. I appreciate all your kind words. I do not, however, feel like a great looking pregnant woman. I realize I could be looking much worse, but I am just eating like a horse, and I know it's not good. Example: I made Reeses peanut butter bars for a gathering here this evening. I can't tell you how many I have eaten. I am a stomach of steel when it comes to sweets, so I take a piece, then another, and another, and so on. As a result I gain weight. Now, in your mind you are all thinking, "Well you have a good excuse to eat. You are pregnant."
Women are very good about building each other up, but we tend to sell ourselves short. I am 100% guilty of that. I see others and wish, "Why can't I be as patient as her, why can't I look as good pregnant, why can't I have a better butt, etc, etc." That's pretty sad for a 32 year old. But it is what it is so there you have it.
Now, it's time for me to quit venting, and be a mom. I have an upset 3 year old who wants me to put in an Arthur video to make her feel better. Note: she doesn't want a hug, kiss, or me to dry her tears....but good old Arthur can do the trick!

I am all about finding out what reeses peanut butter bars are! Will you post the recipe?

I know exactly what you mean - about being a woman and about Arthur (haha!).
I will say, however, that you MUST eat all you want now because I am weaning myself off of junk food now and it sucks.
