Yesterday marked the 14 weeks. Only 4 more weeks until we can find out if we are having a boy or girl! Wahoo! Baby G is about the size of a lemon and is most likely starting to suck his or her thumb. Pretty crazy that this little person is moving around inside of me and I can't even feel it. I can't wait until I can feel Baby G kick and move around inside of me!
Now that I've made it to trimester 2 I am starting to feel a little better. I'm still really tired, but I think the lack of energy is more from teaching than pregnancy. I've been sick a couple of times recently which is most likely due to my prenatal vitamins, so hopefully my doctor can get that figured out before too long. My nose has been stuffed up since I was about 10 weeks, so I'm pretty sure that's here to stay! Oh well, all of this will be totally worth it in the end!
My belly is starting to get a little bigger. I am still fitting into my regular clothes, which is nice! My mom said she wasn't in maternity clothes when she was pregnant with me until about 5 months..so hopefully I have a little more time in my cute normal clothes! I'm not sure if people in public think that I am pregnant or that I have started drinking a six pack on a regular basis. I look a little chubby but not really big enough that people can look at me and say, wow, she's huge!
Here are some 14 week pictures...
There is definitely a little baby bump there! I did break down this weekend and finally purchase one of these silly looking things. . .
I resisted for a while, but I figure one of these days in the future I will probably start to feel uncomfortable in my jeans, so I should probably have a back up plan just in case! I LOVE shopping. It's like a hobby to me. However, I don't think I will love shopping for maternity clothes. They are so expensive and I just can't see buying a whole new wardrobe for just 9 months. I'm going to try these bella bands for as long as possible but I know eventually I'll have to break down and buy maternity pants!
This weekend I had my first Build a Bear experience. My mom, sister and I took our friend McKenna to Build a Bear. I of course had to make a bear (or in my case, puppy) for Baby G. I figured Duane would just roll his eyes when I got home and showed him..but I think the puppy's shirt made him change his mind!
Pretty cute huh? Jill and McKenna made bears too...
What a cute place! I can't wait to take Baby G there someday! Gradma H also just had to buy the baby a couple of things while we were out. I have resisted buying anything until I find out the sex (for the record Duane bought Baby G something before I did, who would have thought!?) but this stuff was pretty cute! I can't wait until we know what Baby G is so we can go shopping! :)
If you're pregnant and need a good laugh..check out the book Belly Laughs bu Jenny McCarthy. It's pretty humorous (and slightly inappropriate) and gives expecting mama's a good laugh! If you're looking for a funny, blunt pregnancy book..this is it! :)
Thanks for listening to my pregnancy ramblings! I promise there are many more to come. Hope your weekend was great! :)
