As you may or may not be able to see, at about 12 weeks I started to show a little bit in my scrubs. Now there is definitely a little bump, and yesterday I wore a belly band for the first time. I was hoping that it would be really comfortable since I am just not ready to splurge on maternity clothes yet, but none of my pants fit anymore. However, it was definitely not comfortable, and I felt self conscious the whole time I was at church for fear of my pants falling down. I am really thankful for my sister-in-law Katie and a co-worker Tracy who each gave me some maternity clothes so that I don’t need to run out to Motherhood Maternity right away, but the time is definitely coming soon.
This was the first week that I didn’t get sick at all. Hallellujah!! Hopefully some more of that second trimester goodness will kick in soon!
I’ve had a bunch of people ask me if we have a name picked out and I feel a little bit badly when I say no, we really have no ideas. But at the same time, there’s not a whole lot of pressure since we don’t know the baby’s gender yet and still won’t for a few weeks. We are really looking forward to that next ultrasound though, and being able to give our little one their own identity.
I can’t believe this is our last year before kids!!
