I think I'm going to explode!

I really don't think there's any more room for me to grow. My skin has reached it's stretching capacity. If my belly gets any bigger I WILL tip over. I purchased a "maternity support belt" today. It's quite the contraption, I've never had so much Velcro on my body before. I've always made fun of those things and here I am wearing one. I must say sorry for making fun of them though. It really does hold me up better, I'm grateful for anything that keeps me from tipping over. I had 3 people today ask me if I was "about to pop", not a record day but it's up there. The day's I work in the office I get a lot of that. I love the shocked, eyes bugging out look when I tell them...no,no, I still have 7 weeks (this has been going on for 2 months now), next comes the usual reply..."are you having twins?"...my reply..."no this is my 4Th, I'm just huge"...usual reply..."4?"...again the shocked, eyes bugging out look. I guess in the world today saying I have 4 kids is just like saying I have 10. I can see their minds working, they're either thinking she must have started as a teenager or she must be crazy. I know because they'll either say, "you must have your hands full" (translation = your crazy) or "how old are you?" (translation = I'm nosy and I want to know how old you were when you had your first). I've never had to say my age so often in my life. I turned 30 not even a month ago and I swear I've said "I'm 30" at least 20 times since then. Who would have thought once you turned OLD (30 was the cutoff for old age in my mind as a child) you would have to constantly declare your old age to the world over and over again. Oh well, at least I still look 20 according to all the nosy ladies out there that seem to think I had my first child at the age of 14. How else could I have 4 by the age of 20? Oh wait didn't I mention, I'M 30!
