‘Are you sure you are only carrying 1 baby in there??’ My dear friend E. fired at me while trying to grasp the hugeness of what has become of my once normal sized belly. Even her husband came and said ‘oh look, she has a small belly‘. Once I uncovered the ‘small’ belly from my over-sized scarf he immediately corrected himself OH, NO, YOUR BELLY IS HUGE!.

It is.

Evidence pic no.1:


Evidence pic no.2:


Even N. stared at the weight scale this morning and commented: ‘Have you only gained 4 kilos? How did you do that with THAT HUGE BELLY? 

I get it.

It looks kind of alien-ish. And funny. And completely and utterly out of proportion.

Truth of the matter is I don’t really care about it now. But I do wonder HOW this will transform into anything remotely NORMAL once the baby has actually left the premises. Oh well. I ll get over it. I always do.

Enough about THE BELLY now. I have some good news I wanted to share with you.


After 21 weeks it has finally kicked in. The anticipation. The joy. The awe of yet another miracle of life. Yes, I am still freaking out about the not so great things of adjusting your life to the needs of a newborn, but I am actually happy.

I can’t wait to meet him.

I am sure this had something to do with it:


me: honey come and look I have a pic of your brother. This is the nose, the lips, his hands and part of his tummy
Yiannis: he kinda looks like a monster

I hope you are doing all well

Until next time

    Tatu, you look gorgeous! I won’t send you a picture with me and my belly pregnant with twins 😉 This body-image thing is really not very healthy (I just had a nutrition talk this morning at school and I can tell you that these kind of images can really be detrimental, for yourself and for those around you… but this is another story). Anyways, I really am so glad that you’re feeling well and that you can enjoy your pregnancy! You’re really doing a stellar job there and I’m sure your little one knows this already. – Keep on growing, please, because this means that you give your baby all the place he needs! Your body is really precious and fantastic! Alles alles Gute weiterhin!!! xxx
