Saturday the baby reached 15 weeks and the size of an apple. You'd never know it was still that small by my growing midsection. I am starting to show in earnest now, which is actually really cool. Now I don't feel like I have to wear a bunch of layers to hide the extra pounds I've put on - I can show my cute little bump proudly. And I'm finally doing it with some maternity style. I found a couple of shirts on sale at Kohl's on Friday evening. It was disappointing to walk into the dressing room with 6 or 7 shirts and walk out with only 2, but I guess that's just life. I found absolutely nothing at Target either. Disappointing, but hopefully That will change soon.
I know last week I was a little freaked about my maternity pants, but after mixing them in with my regular pants throughout the week, I am convinced that pants with no waistband are the secret to happiness. They're a little difficult at moments (especially in combination with the Bella Band), but overall they are super comfy. Plus the extra layers are good since it's roughly the same temperature at my desk as it is outside right now. I'm curious to see how I'll feel about the "secret fit" belly when I'm 8 months pregnant in June.
Other than the new clothing adventures, I don't have a whole lot to report on the baby front. I'm still feeling pretty good, and looking forward to the first flutters of movement I'll hopefully be feeling in the next few weeks.
In other news we have rearranged our living room for the first time in the nearly 3 years we've been in our house. It was definitely a nice change. We're currently shopping for a chair to increase the seating capacity of our living room, hoping this will make us a bit more apt to entertain post-baby. Other than that we are just looking forward to our trip to State College this weekend; it's going to be cold, but I relish any chance to get away even for a night. Those things will be coming to an end, at least for a while, soon enough.
