23 Weeks

I find it very difficult to pose for these shots? Did anyone else feel this way about documenting the growth progress or is it just me?

Yeah, this look about says it all.

Wearin' it proudly.

22 Weeks

I'm quite behind. This photo was taken 3 weeks ago and I'm wearing the same shirt as I type and finding it significantly smaller on me. In this case, that is a good thing...

So last night I got up and peed 3 times. And I still have 4 months to go! I'm SO not ok with this.

Week 20 and sort of 21

The past weeks have flown by without me documenting my growing girth so here are a few random shots. They're all I have for weeks 20 and 21.

I "needed" grapenuts so I here I am Sunday evening, grinding and toasting!

You can kinda see the expansion in this one...which could of course it could be due to that massive piece of Cream puff cake that I'm shoveling down but that's hardly the point. And ps. you should make this recipe. It's delicious!

People keep telling me that I'm showing but they tack "but surely you haven't gained any weight!" I am here to tell you that that is garbage.

If I haven't gained any weight then why the frick are my clothes so uncomfortable!? Seriously. I've had a few meltdowns in the past week because I stand in front of my closet and see nothing but "tight," "short," and "won't go past my hips," ...so if you see me wearing Justin's sweats and t-shirts, wisely don't say a word. I'm still squeezing into a few regular pants but the baby kicks and kicks when I wear them so I can't help but feel like I'm squishing it! I intend to mosey in to town this week to find just one pair of pants that are black, stretchy, and can be worn with anything. Surely, surely they exist somewhere in my size.

Speaking of my size. I have very kindly been lent and given a number of maternity items for which I am very grateful...but this maternity body so far doesn't seem to made for maternity clothes. What is with that? Everything either slides down or creeps up...all the better to expose those parts of me that have expanded significantly to make room for baby and its aquatic home. Actually, I'm not sure why the derier is expanding, there's no baby in there as far as I know.

I'm thinking that maternity wear from days gone by don't look so bad.

Imagine how comfy this would be...minus the collar. You could hide a full grown person under there! Actually several, one in each sleeve!

I Needa Spaace

I guess this is why we're buying a new house... I took this picture yesterday while doing homework; check out THIS relaxing little abode.

Take note that the (very comfy...thanks Dustin and Christy) brown chair is in fact in the center of the living-room. About two feet in front of the TV. We can't even get to the loveseat behind it. or the sliding door behind the loveseat. Laundry, guitar, napping husband...all pretty much on top of each other.

Zoom out a little further and we have a bag of clothes that don't fit, a baby toy that has no place to go, and homework on the kitchen table. It's not the end of the world to have a child in a small space but I am SO thankful that we have the opportunity to move into something larger before accumulating baby paraphernalia!

By the by, want to know what my husband is doing today at this very minute?
