Does anyone remember my post about buying clothes for my imaginary children back in February? I'm happy to share with you that I no longer have to use my imagination! I can just look down at my expanding belly for a reminder that this child is real. (And so is the chub!). I'm in the 15th week which puts our due date in the third week of June. It's been an extremely easy pregnancy so far which, of course, I feel lucky about, but it also makes the whole thing seem a bit surreal. But also thrilling.
I hit a milestone last week by breaking down and buying my first official maternity garment - a comfy pair of Liz Lange cords from Target which made the 6 hour car ride home for the holidays much more comfortable. I'm in that in-between stage of not really showing, but having gained enough weight that most of my clothes are snug. At least now that we've begun telling people I can feel less self-conscious about the weight and my baggier wardrobe.
As I said, I've had very few symptoms of prenancy (zero morning sickness - hooray!) with the exception of being tired - a lot. It's like I have narcolepsy. I hit a certain point in the day and I just absolutely need a nap. Which, working a full-time job, isn't always possible! I keep hearing that I'm going to feel more energetic now that I'm in the 2nd trimester, but show me the money!!
As you may have noticed from my radio silence, I haven't been at the sewing machine in months (with the sole exception of making two draft dodgers for a friend that I forgot to photograph). But I'm hoping this will change as I have all kinds of plans for making baby clothes and blankets and whatever else strikes my fancy. Stay tuned...!
