Matching family tshirts (and the first bump picture!)

We got these matching tshirts for Christmas from Dave’s uncle. He’s an artist and designed this cyclist logo for when the Tour de France came through Cambridge (where he lives), for a project called Peloton d’Art where 22 different sculptures using the logo outline (sort of like the cows on other cities) were diplayed around the city. It comes in different versions, Dave and I have the basic white on black one, but Milo got the one with the world champion jersey. You can buy mugs, prints, cards and tshirts with the design at Woosh Cambridge. It’s just men’s cuts for the tshirts just now just now. They’re thinking about whether/how to offer the ladies and kids ones, maybe just as custom orders, and would appreciate feedback!

Also, I guess this is the first bump picture on the blog! I’m bloody huge already, I’m pretty sure last time you weren’t really able to tell at all until about week 20. This is week 14 and I’ve been showing since week 6 pretty much. I don’t totally understand it, I know everyone says you show earlier second time cos your stomach muscles are gone, but I had actually gone a bit ab-exercise crazy before I got pregnant and they were the strongest they’ve ever been, I could hold the plank for a minute no problem and navasana pretty much indefinitely. Oh well, who knows! I don’t mind now I’m not trying to hide it any more – although it would be nice to get away without stretch marks again this time.

    It’s all weird being pregnant – second time round my bump was about 4 weeks ahead of bump no 1. Third time was about the same as no 2, until the end (cos I was pregnant for an extra 10 days to 40+ 16!!)

    I don’t think it’s really to do with muscle strength – it feels more like muscle memory – your body has been pregnant before so it more readily stretches and curves and gives way!

      Aahh, 40 plus 16! I thought later pregnancies were meant to be quicker! I guess you never know!

    Love the t-shirts! I also showed really early with No.2 but got no extra stretch marks, no room for any more after No.1 I think šŸ™‚

      Thank you! I’m remaining hopeful!
