I've officially purchased maternity clothes. I did the belly band for a bit...but when I felt like I couldn't breath anymore with it on, I decided to invest in some maternity pants. They are all still too big, but I sadly know that will be changing soon. I also went through my closet and pulled all shirts that will work with a big belly. I can thank the recent trend of flowy shirts that I have more than a few options to wear. But I also got a couple true maternity shirts - you know, because I couldn't pass them up and they are supposed to be more "flattering" (though a big belly is a big belly).
My nausea has eased, though sporadically through the day it'll still hit me. I actually made dinner last night for the first time in ages! My food cravings are very unpredictable and Matt has succumbed to the fact that our grocery bill will be a smidge higher with me being pregnant. But I made my dinner menu for the week and went real grocery shopping yesterday, so it's looking up. I think this working 20 hours a week thing is also helping the situation. I'm WAY more rested now!
I'm beginning to feel like myself again and starting to enjoy this pregnancy thing. It's kinda fun to see my belly grow knowing that there is a little baby in there!
