15 weeks!


Honestly, it's all about the countdown to mid March for me now. My next OB appointment, my next opportunity to hear Lil G's heart, my next blood draw, and the big U/S are all within a one-week span. It's all I can do to watch the days tick down and get me closer. I feel like everything is on hold until then. I'm sitting and waiting and hoping and growing terribly impatient.

Today I wore my first maternity shirt to work. I don't think anyone knows it's a maternity shirt since I'm not really filling out the flowy stomach area, but when I look in the mirror, I look hilarious. And old. I have no clue why, but me wearing maternity wear makes me feel ancient. It's just so odd to me. But it's that or looking like an overstuffed heffer in my regular fitted clothing, and that is not happening.

Other than that, not too much is new. Headaches are a new daily occurance, and they kinda can hit the road if it was up to me. As if getting from 3 pm to 5 was hard before, now I have to do so with pain and blurry eyes. I'm still not getting the sleeping thing down yet either. I'm hoping in time I'll just be so exausted that I'll pass out, but it's yet to happen.

I'm thinking I might post another bump pic sometime this week. It's been a month, and while I'm not really huge, I can def see some changes. Instead of a puffy pouch, it's more defined now. I'll see if I can get the hubs to capture me a good shot tonight.

YAY! I always feel like the 5 markers (5/10/15/20 weeks) are huge ones- so YAY! I bet you look adorable and can't wait to see a belly pic.
Also- I think my whole life is countdowns- countdown to this appt, countdown to this milestone. It helps it seem faster.
