I can see my belly!

So for folks who haven't met me - I'm very large chested. Lets just say that looking for maternity bras is akin to finding something that would hoist the Titanic. Himself has made murmurs of maybe we should put scuba diving gear on the registry just so Hobbit can breast feed OK...
So my boobs haven't become much bigger with being preggers but they have become much heavier (which I thought was impossible). Last night while standing up himself declared OMG your belly is now bigger than your boobs. I looked down and for first time ever I could see a belly past my boobs. At nearly 33 weeks its probably about time but is quite weird. I have never seen body parts past my own personal shelf there unless lying down. All food that I inadvertently drop lands straight on my chest. I heard that women who get breast reduction surgery comment that the strangest thing about getting it is suddenly having food land on the floor instead of them.. Not happening for me for a while so I'll just keep using my Tide laundry stick for all my messes on shirts and fish for that crumb that just disappeared into my bra...
Have a Happy 4th of July folks.

I did get a chuckle out of this. I never get stains on my chest...always on my belly and I'm not even pregnant anymore.

I know there's a bra brand I've heard my more endowed friends mention. I'll see if I can find a link.

I don't know you at all, but I love your stories and the personality of yours that comes out in them! Thank you for the email, by the way. I have not had a minute to thoughtfully respond to ye yet, but I will soon. For now, I'd just like for you to know that I think you are really funny, and you remind me a bit of myself! By the way, what part of Ireland do you come from? My Mom's side of the family is from Kerry, and my Dad's side from Armagh.
