Uh, say whaaaaat? I'm halfway done with my pregnancy?
It feels like we were just finding out about Baby O! Well, I did find out about her at 9 weeks, so maybe why this seems like it's been so quick. I actually started feeling her kick this week! Greg felt her for the first time on Friday night. It's very slight. I don't know how to explain it.
I don't feel halfway pregnant. I've been so blessed to not be sick at all, except for being extremely congested and snoring at night (which is getting better). The pregnancy heartburn is starting to kick in, which is highly inconvenient in the middle of yoga class whilst doing a downward-facing dog. My body feels heavier, and -- NEVER in my life did I ever think I would say this! -- my boobs are getting way too big. I'm awkwardly pudgy in the middle, but not super pregnant looking. I think it depends on the clothes I wear.
And don't get me started on clothes. Getting dressed has every day has been a nightmare. I don't quite know how to do it. 2 weeks ago, everything stopped fitting, pants-wise. I've got a pair of shorts (those pictured above), two skirts, a heck of a lot of yoga pants, leggings, and dresses to get me through this transitional stage. I bought a few more dresses that will grow with me and can be dressed up for work. I love dresses anyway, so this is a win-win situation for me. I am going to go out and finally buy pants right before school starts in case I get bigger.
We also successfully registered, with the help of my BFF, Katie! Previously, Greg and I went to register, just the two of us, and we had no idea what we were doing. We walked around with that scanner thinga-majig going, "Well, there's about 504389274834 different types of bottles. Which one are we supposed to scan?" It was quite amusing. Luckily, Katie came to our rescue and helped us finish this past weekend.
One more thing. I'd like to mention how awesome my blog friends are. I got a nice little surprise from Amber in the mail this weekend.
|Can we say adorable? She knows me too well - cupcakes and kitties!!|
So, I guess this is what halfway there feels like. I haven't even started thinking about the upcoming school year or anything else of significant importance, aside from my baby. How am I going to do this when she finally graces the world with her presence?!
