    And you're a lil bit taller than me!!! I thought I was 5'3".....but when I went for my first preggy check-up, they measured my height and I'm 5'2". I was so crushed about that lost inch :(

  3. That was long. who makes these kind of questionnaires anyway?

    Good though, enjoyed reading. I saw that ur last post had 60+ comments! Yes, some were by you, but u must be feeling good!

  4. Winnie: Cooool....take your time;-P

    Shalom: An old lady once told me tht when a girl is married she puts on another inch, then when she has her 1st child, she grows another inch but after tht its all downhill;-D
