I am so glad to have made it to the second trimester. For me, it IS true what most people told me-that the 2nd is much better than the first. In many ways, I was still very blessed to have a "relatively" easy first trimester. No actual morning sickness (as in coming back up--my worst fear!), but I did have some nausea, major migraines, aches and pains, and indescribable exhaustion. I'm feeling pretty good now...getting my appetite back, headaches are minimal, and not AS tired as I was just a month ago.

Something that is crazy to me, is the comments people make to you when you are out in public. I was at a birthday party last night one of our friends' grandfathers and had many people ask me things like how far along I am, when I'm due, stuff like that--no big deal. I was really shocked when people say things like, "Oh, you look much bigger than you are!" or "That is one big bump!" Gee...thanks. Cue kind of awkward moment.

spring break

I am more ready for spring break this year than I have ever been in my career or at least a LONG time. One thing I can say for sure; is that I am certainly blessed in the first place by just having a career where I get a spring break! This will be the first year in a number of years I haven't taken a fun trip somewhere, but with baby on the brain...I think it is a small sacrifice to make. I would like to take a trip to Dallas to see family and friends, but it is almost too hard to NOT spend money and we are really working hard to save. Did I mention I really need to find a good pair of maternity jeans? Boo. I will have to cave soon and bite the bullet.

14 weeks prego

believe me

I didn't know something the size of a peach could literally cause so much back pain. At the rate I'm going, I'll need a scooter to get me from point A to point B for the next 6 months. Other than that, I'm pretty lucky in that I have felt generally pretty good. Our monster child is growing like a weed. It's actually pretty scary when a co-worker/friend comes up to you in the hall and says, "You better pray for a c-section."
Jesus, help me.
I'm on an anti-maternity clothes ban. So far, I'm doing pretty good. Anyone you know made it through their pregnancy without buying maternity clothes?
dress: old navy (clearance...score!)
jacket: gap
boots: dillards

Blessings, y'all.
