Why was I so quiet…

…for the past 4 months? We’re expecting! I know it is the norm for people to share the news at 12 weeks/3 months, but I just wasn’t quite ready. Growing a baby is rather nerve-wracking business! I’m no good at keeping my own secrets (others’ secrets? They’ll never drag it out of me!) I guess because I have shared so much of my life for so long. It was easier for me to just hide out until I was ready.

The belly is always bigger at night...

Things are going well, but it is still hard to wrap my mind around the fact that there is someone living inside of me. Kind of trippy. With each new milestone, it gets more real. We’ve heard the heartbeat twice now. Amazing! And seeing the baby dancing around at 12 weeks on the ultrasound screen was one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Can they just install a window in my belly? I’m starting to show, and so it was time to come out of hiding. That has made it quite real. I am excited for my belly to grow – I think pregnancy bellies are adorable. I’m trying not to get too worked up about the big ultrasound at the end of the month because then it will just be too hard to wait!

Clothing is starting to be a problem. I’ve grown boobs, plus my mini belly, and so my shirts are getting too short. I often just leave my jeans undone or held closed with a rubber band. I am still a couple weeks from being able to fit in maternity stuff, but I have my eye on some cute tops and sweaters. I’m a tiny gal, so hopefully I can buy some non-maternity stretchy tunics or short dresses to wear as tops.

I am definitely at the stage where I can see myself growing every day. Fun times!
