15 Weeks, a.k.a too big for my britches...


Yes, literally, too big for my normal pants. Saturday I stepped out in maternity pants for the first time, and while they sure are comfy, it felt kinda weird. I mean, yes, I am pregnant, but in my head I don't look like a "pregnant woman." So somehow wearing maternity clothes just feels odd. But damn they's comfortable. I tried to brave it back into normal pants for work today, and an hour into the morning I was about ready to run out to Target for replacements. But hey, I was wearing a long shirt and no one would notice if I unbuttoned the top button, heheh.

So here is me at 15 weeks. I find it kinda entertaining how the feeling of my tummy changes during the day - sometimes it feels rock hard and other times it's like a bowl full of jelly.

Overall I'm feeling pretty good lately, though I feel heartburn-kinda discomfort at some point most days. Guess that's what happens when your stomach is shoved up into your rib cage.

And you know they say that our partners can gain weight and have other symptoms during the pregnancy. Take a look for yourself and see how this has effected poor Byron.

Oh, I remember the first time I put on maternity pants. It was a little odd, sure, but OH MY GOD was it comfortable after squeezing into regular pants a few days too long. Overall, I really loved my maternity clothes. Comfy, stretchy. Of course, by the end, they couldn't quite contain the enormousness of my whole belly, but still. :-)

Yep, since I have now lost all identity of my own (as all mothers are supposed to, right?) it only seems appropriate to picture me headless. That, and my hair was a mess.
