Thank you for all of the responses
I never in a million years would have thought that I would be THIS person, posting here. The one people are praying for. It helps to know that there are others out there who have an idea of what I am going through...

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm 25 weeks and starting to really look pregnant. I know people notice and I dread the day when someone asks me how far along I am, if it's a boy or girl, etc. This is terrible, but part of me wishes it would happen sooner than later so I can be done being pregnant. I don't want the attention and the belly and the looks and questions...
