Pictures of the Preggy Girl

Soon enough I do a little preggy fashion show. As for now, it's just me in my saggy-bottom capris. My belly does a great job of making them fall down all the time. Last I measured it was a full 12 inches bigger than when I started- that was two weeks ago. I'm sure it's bigger by now.

Pictures of Ian's Room

My mom was asking me today what Ian's room is decorated like. Well. It's kinda funny. When we bought our house a bit over a year ago- one room had murals of nature scenes on the wall. As is consistent with my personality... I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. Everything has to grow on me. Anyway- It's quite cute. I'm quite a nature girl so it feels like home.

Photos of a Tired Wife

Well, there have been repeated requests to post photos of the preggy woman. I've made several attempts. Unfortunately, she seems to find clothing exceptionally uncomfortable at the moment.

Generally speaking, it take less than 3 seconds from her arrival at home for the woman to strip to her unmentionables. This doesn't leave me much time to produce a photograph that most state legislatures wouldn't consider obscene.

I have, on numerous occasions, suggested that it would be unnecessary to fulfill such a ridiculous requirement. April, on the other hand strongly disagrees. I tried drawing a picture for the record, but as it turns out, I can't draw.

Oh well. Hopefully one of these days I'll get her to sit still long enough for the photo.

Ian's Face

Well, we had another ultrasound. In this one, you can clearly see his facial features.

All is calm. All is bright.

I guess that's how I feel. My life is probably just as busy as ever, but I just feel calm about everything. It's funny. By nature, I am typically quite an anxious person. I guess being sick for so long was good for me. Suddenly I didn't have energy to care about stuff that I normally would have worried/ cared about. Now that I'm just so grateful to be feeling better that nothing else matters. I'm starting to get on the marginally uncomfortable side- breathing, etc, etc, but I don't really care- I feel SO much better than I did for so long. I'm just grateful! Sleep- I have rarely slept well in months. But once again, it really doesn't matter. I just think it's my body learning to function productively with less sleep. Obviously, something that will be necessary in the months ahead. All-in-all, I just feel at peace. It's really nice.

My waistline is now officially 12 inches bigger than it was when I started. I look in the mirror every day and gawk at how big our little boy must be.... quite a difference from 4 millimeters. Quite proud of the boy. Way to go little guy. I have grown out of some of my early maternity clothes- the ones I thought were SOOOO huge. Life is funny. I know, I'm sorry. I keep meaning to get pictures on here. I'll have to make Dave do that soon.
