Why "Bigger in Japan"?

Well, my husband and I live in Obihiro, a small city on the northern island of Hokkaido in Japan. The population is about 175 000 and there really aren't very many "foreign" folks here. I have light colored hair, I'm a bit under 5'8" tall, and I am by no means a "small" or even "medium" built woman. My favorite eyeglasses are red (2nd fav are bright blue) and from what I understand I laugh often and the sound can carry for a great distance. So needless to say I'm a solidly built Canadian gal that generally sticks out in a crowd of local folks in these parts. Being pregnant and growing bigger (hence "Bigger in Japan") around the 'ol mid section is going to make me all the more noticeable! I can't wait really and plan to ham it up as much as possible!
