15 weeks

Ok, not quite.  But tomorrow will officially be 15 weeks.  And boy, have I really popped.  There is no hiding this belly.  Now, maybe it’s the fact that I’m in a maternity dress in this pic, but man, I look way more than 14w4d here:


That said, I love it! 🙂  I’m actually starting to “feel” pregnant.  And there’s certainly no denying it when I look in the mirror.  Or the scale.  So far, I’m up about 10 pounds or so – and that’s with eating pretty healthy and walking 3-4 times a week.  I sure hope I can keep that up or I’ll be a cow pretty soon!!

I broke down and finally went maternity clothes shopping this past weekend and I’m glad I did.  As you can probably see, there’s no way I’m getting my butt into regular clothes these days.  I can still get away with some of my sweats and yoga pants, but mostly, I’m in maternity clothes or dresses full time.   But this weekend, I hit the mother-load at Motherhood!!  I got some really great stuff for pretty decent prices.  The dress in the pic was a Motherhood find on the clearance rack for about $15.

So all is well and progressing just fine.  I do want to give a huge shout-out to fellow blogger The Road To Motherhood.  Please stop over and congratulate her on her pregnancy!!  She, like me, struggled with infertility but is now on her path to parenthood.  I wish all the best!

13 weeks!!

Oy!  I knew I was going to be a bad blogger – lol.  I’ve been lax on the posting.  I’m just so dang tired when I get home.  Even going to the grocery store wears me out enough to require a nap afterwards.

But all in all, quiet at this point is a good thing.  I can’t believe I’m starting the second tri already – whew!  My nausea has pretty much subsided, though I have found that if I get too hungry or tired, it starts up again so I just have to watch that and make sure I’m eating every couple of hours.

We had our latest appointment this past Monday at 12w3d which included our NT scan.  From what the doc could see, all looks good, but we are still awaiting the results of my bloodwork for official word.  The u/s this week was absolutely amazing!!  He/she actually looks like a baby now.  The blob has morphed!  She was moving all over the place and bouncing around during the u/s.  At one point, she even threw up a hand and we could see all the little outstretched fingers.  I’m in LOVE! 🙂

I can’t wait to get the NT results back for true relief, but I was pretty encouraged by the doc’s comments.  I was so worried about this test.  Of course, now I’ve got my eyes on the 20 week u/s – yet another thing to be worried about!

But in the meantime, I’m beginning the daunting task of trying to learn about all things baby.  I’ve bought Baby Bargains, as recommended by some good friends.  It really is a great resource and huge help, especially to a first timer.

I promise to update again soon – and I have to catch up on all of my blogger friends posts too.  For now, I leave you with this…
