I'm 13 weeks and 1 whole day today! I feel the greatest sense of accomplishment with each week that I complete. My body is changing and I couldn't be prouder of it. Every day I have to move more of my clothes into the "later" section because my belly is growing and there is no stopping it. While it is very exciting to see my belly pop out further and further by the minute, I'm having serious issues people! I have NO clothes to wear. Just last week I was able to get away with the belly band over unbuttoned jeans, but now? It's kind of uncomfortable and I feel the need for real maternity clothes coming on.
This weekend I shopped, A LOT. What did I find? After days of going through many stores, racks and several malls, I found two dresses. TWO DRESSES. One at Banana Republic and this one from Express. I didn't realize how frustrating this would be. The gap where I was shopping didn't have maternity (sigh), neither did the old navy. I'm considering ordering online because I am desperate for a good fitting pair of jeans. Any advice on how their maternity sizes run?
My Baby: The size of a peach! How cute. My little one is forming teeth and vocal cords that I'm sure will come in handy later when he/she needs Daddy's attention. The vocal cords, not the teeth.
Weight: Up 2 pounds as of Thursday so that may have changed.
Symptoms: I have been quite the slacker lately when it comes to my blog. Actually I have been quite the slacker when it comes to just about everything. I think a lot of my readers totally get how tired growing a person can make you feel. While the nausea definitely seems to be fading, the one thing I cannot shake is fatigue. I seriously give my alarm clock a dirty look every morning. That thing is my enemey.
Overall though, it has been a pretty good week and I'm looking forward to the rest of my pregnancy transformation.
