I didn't have a single spare second yesterday for the pregnancy update so I am writing today. The pant size thing is correct. I have one pair of normal size pants I can still comfortably button. The rest of them I am only able to wear by not buttoning them, or by using the rubber band trick. It has been interesting. I did get a few items of Maternity clothing for Christmas, which I have started to incorporate into my wardrobe. I am constantly amazed at how much my body changes week to week. The last 3 weeks, the changes have been dramatic. I am now four months along and my little belly is almost to the point where people feel comfortable asking me if I'm pregnant. Mostly I just make it a point to tell people that I am up front. I can't stand the thought of them speculating in their head whether I am pregnant, or just over ate during the holidays. hehehe I don't have any "morning sickness" at all anymore...not that I had it bad to begin with. Right now I'm in that stage where I know I'm pregnant, but there's not a ton of evidence other than my expanding belly. I swear I have felt the baby move, like soft, twirling flutters...but it hasn't happened enough that I can tell for sure. So I'm just waiting...I'll be so thrilled to finally feel the baby move. I'm looking forward to my 19 week appointment, where we get to find out the baby's gender. Let's all hope baby cooperates.
Baby is now 12 centimeters long head to bum, hee. Which seemed like a lot to me until I measured it and imagined holding that tiny thing in my hands. I am decidedly glad baby is still safe in my tummy. According to ivillage, baby has started developing toenails and can suck it's thumb. Also, if I was able to get a good peek, we'd be able to tell the gender. How I wish I could peek right now! I'm so impatient!
Update on the accident...still no word whether or not our car is totaled. We did finally get a rental two days ago. Love had a CT Scan to make sure his head was ok. (The doctor thought he might have a mild concussion and wanted to check him out.) The results came back normal, so we are grateful. As for our other injuries, we are almost completely healed and feeling very blessed. Thank you all for your concern for us, it truly means a lot!
