15 Weeks

WOW, the weeks are really zooming by! I can’t believe I’m already at 15!

Some highlights of my fun little pregnant life:

  • A shopping trip last Saturday with my lovely Mom (yes, she has a myspace) for maternity clothes. Destination Maternity in Riverpark has some adorable things — I was surprised! I picked up the pink top and jeans I’m wearing in the picture, another hot pink top, and a white camisole. Those should get me through this paycheck… then I’m going back for a dress. Or two. Or three.
  • Baby Gable is now the size of a teaspoon, or about 4.5 inches. Precious!
  • I felt some movement the other night before bed, then again the next night. You hear all these women saying how the flutters feel like ‘butterflies’, but I’d say it’s more like someone’s finger tapping. Like, when you’re doing that impatient, finger-tapping-on-the-table-thing… only inside your uterus. haha
  • The date has been set for the BIG ULTRASOUND — June 19th, at 8:00am. You all have no idea how excited I am to find out what this little baby is! And following Lisa’s example, I’m going to give you all an opportunity to get your predictions in before the big day. :)

And Shea, to answer your question about where I’m taking these pictures…

I sit at work some days and having nothing to do but think about being pregnant and how freaking huge my tummy is getting. So then I take a little trip to our ghetto bathroom and snap a low-quality cell phone picture to share with the world. Why I don’t wait for Justin to take a good one with his expensive camera, I don’t know. Maybe I should start… these make me look pasty.

P.S. Why don’t they have Fun Mum in America!? I want this top SO BAD, but with shipping it comes out to about $80.00. Le sigh.

13 Weeks

Another awkward facial expression (how depressed do I look? I promise I’m a happy person!), ginormous boobies and an almost-13-week baby bump for your enjoyment. Or maybe just for mine… that’s cool too.

Anyone have stylish/affordable maternity outfit suggestions? My wardrobe is dwindling… I can’t fit into my small-mediums anymore!! :(

Edit:

I was just told that my cheeks are looking chubbier than normal.  Thanks, lady.

12 Weeks

What better way to celebrate the 3 month mark than to buy yourself a pair of stretchy maternity pants? These things don’t even have a zipper… they’re basically pregnant lady pull-ups. I’m just keepin’ it classy.

I figure my bump is about 90% gas, 10% baby at this point, but it’s far better to walk around in these puppies than suffocate my uterus. I actually don’t think I could have handled it for another minute, anyway.

I feel legit. :)

P.S. Could I have made a more hideous face?  I think not.

Note to Justin: I realize I’ve spent about $23,000 this week, but these were on sale. When you have a full-on Lemon Baby in your stomach, come back and tell me that I don’t need these. J/K, I love you.
