How far along? 12 weeks? I'm really bad at keeping track of this....I'm around 3 months, I know that.
Alexa, I did this in Cooper Black just for you ;)
I did not color coordinate these outfits, I guess you can tell how diverse my wardrobe is!
Side bar: all these photos online of these chicks with baby bellies....they have NO BUTT! My butt might end up bigger than my belly. I hope not- but the size of that bootay makes the belly look so small!
Total weight gain/loss: 1.5 gain
Maternity Clothes? I didn't have any until my Sister-in-law brought me her hand-me-downs. Now that I have a pair of elastic jeans I'm in love! They don't fit snug yet, but I can see the advantage. Buffet anyone?? I will say my yoga pants are too tight around the belly now. Very uncomfortable and depressing.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep? Going good. We just got back from our honeymoon with hard beds, so adjusting to our soft bed makes sleeping much easier.
Best moment this week: Telling HIS family. It was J's God-son's birthday party so the entire family was together. The kids were outside playing and all the adults were inside. I'm not joking - there was no adult supervision out there. Two of the kids are over 10, so that counts as supervision right? Anyways, J said "We have an announcement to make" and he held everyone's anxious attention as he said "Rachel's pregnant". Cue the screams and hugs and questions and stories. It was fun. Very overwhelming, as most things with his family are (there are just so many people!) but definitely a room full of love. Can't beat that.
Miss Anything? caffeine. I need a vacation from my vacation and I didn't get one. Trying to catch up on sleep for now.
Your baby is the size of a lime
Food cravings: Not really, the more I read the more I realize a healthy diet is a better craving than any piece of junk food. Most of the time I just crave food. I'm hungry all the time. This is my first week of weight gain.
Anything making your queasy or sick? Nope and still no sickness. Thanks be to God!
Symptoms: Sciatic Nerve pain is back! Lovely...Also sneezing a lot, headaches and congestion. It might just be the change in environments from Jamaica to Dallas to West Texas.
Have you started to show yet? Hooters are falling out everywhere! And just this week I got a huge bump. I'm sure it's nothing compared to what is coming. But Hubby did good when I said "Look at this belly!" and he just smiled.
Labor signs: none
Belly button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on - well I forgot to put them on, AGAIN.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy. Not looking forward to it being out in the open with everyone asking me a million questions a day. Facebook official, workplace official, ayayaya (I already got a text from my in-law asking how I was feeling).
Looking forward to: Clearing out my closet of definite 'Not for 6+ months' clothes. It was getting too crowded in there anyways.
