Men seldom make passes at girls who… are 37 weeks pregnant*

in Does this baby make me look fat?

Your body retains extra fluid throughout pregnancy. This causes the cornea (the outer layer of your eye) to get about 3 percent thicker, a change that may become apparent by the 10th week of pregnancy and persist until about six weeks after delivery. Intraocular pressure (pressure of fluid within your eyeball) decreases about 10 percent during pregnancy. These two events, in combination, may cause slightly blurred vision.

If you wear contact lenses, particularly hard lenses, you may find them uncomfortable because of these changes.

Guess who hasn’t been able to wear her contacts (which, coincidentally, are hard lenses) since Ski Weekend, back in February? Cute as I may be with four eyes, my patience with this, like so many things, is wearing thin.

Hi Jen just wanted to wish you a happy mother’s day. Hopefully we will both be having babies sometime in the next week. I don’t know about you but I am done! LOL.
