Default What about my symptoms eh?

Im beginning to think I DO NOT HAVE ALS .

Why do you ask ? Well I consulted Dr Google, known the world over as having something to say about everything.

My Symptoms

I have swollen purple feet and ankles.
My clothes don't fit me anymore
Mood Swings - Zero to bastard in 2 seconds flat
Hungry at all times of day and night, yup 10pm last night was Cheeze Whiz night - Yes I know if you add one more chemical you have plastic. It didn't matter.
My tummy is growing outwards, my oversized t-shirts leave 2 inches of skin showing including butt crack.
I cried all damn day when my friend died.

And what the diagnosis?

I'M PREGNANT

How do I explain that to Wanda?

Well I guess Congratulations are in order! Can't wait to meet the little bundle of joy.

Possible Baby names: Resident S.A. Junior if it's a boy and Glenda if it's a girl. Are you going to want to know ahead of time or will you wait and be surprised?

Glen, Aren't you a little old to be a first time mom?... maybe you should get a tattoo of an eye, or something thought/conversation provoking that can wink at people when your mid-drift is doing the peep show.

Thanks for the congrats , but I am getting worried.

I think it might be a baby elephant.
I looked down and saw its trunk.

Nothing is normal for me.

Yes, for the ladies only, you may throw me in the shower, but must prepare to get wet & soapy.

Thanks Glen - that was one of the best laughs I had in a long time! I knew where it was going but still had to read it to the end!

(Hey I do ultrasound - can I scan you - together we can sell the pics to the Globe or Enquirer and make lots of $$)
