|This is really how big the baby is... it's not any reference to Nebraska.|
Baby has been hanging out up near my navel more now that my uterus is stretching in 'segments.' I had no idea that happened. O.o
I'm hungry, hungry, hungry. Sometimes I surprise myself at how much I can eat at one time and how much I cannot; my stomach is still fickle and I still am plagued by morning sickness. Instead of sickness 20x/day it's now down to about 5-7x/week. I'll take it.
I'm exhausted a lot but I am driven by making things and getting things for the baby. I was so hungry yesterday when I came home that I did have a quick handful of cheerios but I was so blindly distracted by my pattern cutting for the baby's new Raider's hoodie (in progress!) that I didn't remember to eat and got sick. I'm crazy. I know.
My appointment is today at my doctor's office. I'll send out a quick update later!
Did you know there is such a thing as "maternity underwear?"
It's looks exactly how you probably think it looks.
And I refuse to wear them. Good thing, too. Because you know what? The sexy, regular-sized panties they sell at VS on the round tables fit the best! I know: who'd have thought?
I'd been steering clear of my stock of pretty undies after my belly started to grow and morning sickness hit me at 9 weeks. I don't know if that's when I started to feel not-so-pretty but I didn't "allow" myself to even try them until last week (when I started to look pretty to myself again despite Shawn's constant reassurance and compliments). Nothing else fit, so I figured they wouldn't as well.
Lemme tell you: Victoria's Secret is your friend when you are pregnant. The panties sit under the belly and they stay up. Bulk is truly not the answer, here!
Sooo... I might be going shopping for next week after all...
