I'm starting to look like a pregnant lady!

Here's my 16 week pic:

Starting to look like a convincing bump there! I'm really enjoying wearing my cute maternity clothes and rocking the bump around town. I think I'm finally moving out of the "I just look fat" phase so that's good. Nothing else much pregnancy related going on. A couple more weeks until my big u/s so I'm pretty stoked about that. Oh and my birthday is this Sunday!

Happy Mothers Day to me!

It's been a while since I posted so I figure I'd tell you about my Mother's Day weekend. The weather was really nice on Saturday and our usually plant nursery was having a sale so we got a bunch of flowers and plants for our garden (most of which I can't spell so bear with me). We moved a hydrangea out of the sun and into the shade (where it belongs, I don't know why I thought that original spot was shady), and planted a hybiscus in it's place. We also planted a lilac bush in the corner of our bulb garden. Here's a picture of the shade garden, all nice and filled in with impatiens and bagonias.

On Sunday, we were pretty beat from all the planting on Saturday and it was raining so I figured Mother's Day was a good time to shop for maternity clothes! I got a bunch of cute stuff from Motherhood Maternity and even got a gift bag with, among other things, a baby bottle. Now I have a baby bottle...whoa, I still need to figure this baby stuff out! Dan was really sweet and got me a card as well as cards from the dog and cat. I also got Mother-to-be cards from our moms. I'm glad I'm pregnant on Mother's Day, it makes it easier to take that I would have been a mother to a 3 month-old had things worked out with my first pregnancy. I am so blessed for what I have now.

OB appt and my crazy new body

I had my OB appointment today and it went really well. They were able to find the HB right away - 157 bpm, same as I was getting, so yay, I can use my doppler right! Then they weighed me and I actually lost 2 pounds since last time. How did that happen? I haven't done anything! It was so funny to have a doctor tell me I needed to eat more. I've been overweight my whole life so that's a new one...I kind of wish I got that on tape! I talked to him breifly about screening tests and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to do any. It wouldn't really change anything, I wouldn't get an amnio because of the risk and I don't want the extra stress. I will probably have my big u/s around the second week in June. I haven't scheduled it yet because you can get into there the next day so they don't schedule it that far in advance so I have to wait until next month's appt. Oh well, it's next month either way.
Ok, back to my crazy body. I've been busting out of my B-cups so I went to Walmart to get some new bras. I picked up some Cs and they were too small (!!!) So I figured, better try the Ds. I go out and pick up a couple and bring them back to the fitting room and they are C's again. Appearently, my mind and body both don't believe I would need to pick up Ds. So after actually picking some up they fit great. So here I am, ousted from the Itty Bitty Titty Committee (my Bs are itty bitty because I'm a size's a proportion thing). I'm digging this new body though. Boobs look good and I'm starting to get an official baby belly (I'll do a picture soon, I promise). Overall, things are going well on my end :-)
