I figured it was high time I post some belly pictures on the blog. People keep asking me if I am showing yet, and my answer has been no. But after taking, and especially editing, these pictures, by golly, I think I am showing! Maybe not really to a stranger, but definitely to someone who knows me!
What luck that I wore the exact same color for these pictures. Oops! I suppose it is a good fall color. The 12 week picture was taken in the afternoon, and the 13 week picture was taken tonight. I need to try to remember to take a belly picture in the morning hours, because I do get bigger as the day goes by.
Tonight we did a little maternity shopping. I got a belly band that everyone seems to be talking about.
This is the belly band over a pair of my regular jeans that I have been using a pony tail holder to keep closed. The belly band works much better! I don't have to worry about them coming undone, and it hides the bumps of the unfastened jeans.
Same, but from the front.
I also got a pair of maternity jeans! I love them!
One of the best side effects of pregnancy so far is thicker, stronger hair!
Here is an awkward picture of my back as proof.
Some of my other side effects are stuffy nose, headaches, and nausea. The nausea is finally starting to subside. I just have to remember to eat more often. The hair on my legs seems to be growing crazy fast! It is also nice and hairy around my belly button. I am tempted to shave or pluck, but I am controlling myself. I know it will go away after the baby comes, and shaving or plucking would just make it worse.
I have been sitting here trying to think of my other pregnancy symptoms and I am coming up blank. Which reminded me, pregnancy brain. It is real and I have it.
Think my face is "filling out" any?
p.s. when I asked Matt what I was forgetting he said "irritability." Thanks babe...
