Things that no longer fit: my size 8 jeans from Old Navy. Does it matter that they didn't really fit before?
Things I crave: nothing out of the ordinary. What can I say, I've always been a lover of food...
Things I pretend to crave so that I can eat them without feeling too guilty: ice cream and Ruffles chips (with sour cream) and stuffed mushrooms (recipe tomorrow)
Pounds gained: 10 as of this morning
Pounds that are actually from making a baby: probably 2-3
Pounds that are from me being lazy and not working out and pretending to crave things like Ruffles: the other 7-8
Baby update: 19 weeks, about 6-7 inches long and not quite 1/2 a pound
Things I'm impatiently waiting for:
- the stroller that we ordered (courtesy of my very generous parents!!! Thanks Mom and Dad a.k.a. Grandma and Grandpa Bell!),
- the ultrasound tomorrow in which we find out if this baby is a boy or girl, (I keep saying "in which we find out what it is" and my husband keeps responding "Yeah, we could find out that it's an alien growing in there and not even a human.")
- a real belly so I don't just look like a fatty anymore but like an actual pregnant lady,
- our first baby shower in May because we'll be in LA with family, we'll go to Disneyland and I'll get cheesecake.
Thoughts in general: pregnancy is easy! Hahaha...jk. But seriously. Aside from being sleepy at weird times in the day and having strange and terrifying dreams, I haven't really noticed anything out of the ordinary. I'm sure that will change in the weeks to come but so far it's been nice and smooth sailing so bring it on baby!
