Let's try this again :)

Well I have attemped to blog in the past, but ended up doing like 3 and never touching it again. I am hoping that by linking these to FB, I am more successful at actually staying with it this time :)

As pretty much anyone bothering to read this knows, I am pregnant with my first kiddo. I have noticed some interesting things since I've gotten pregnant:

1. The bigger I get, the less I am treated like an adult. I thought being pregnant was all about being pampered - and believe me I have been somewhat pampered and I'm quite enjoying that aspect. However, anytime I pick up a box it's immediately taken from my hands. With all this snow and ice, anytime I get near any of it, I am warned to go slow and take my time. I know everyone's concerned with my well being (and that of Ellies') but it's starting to get to me. I feel like a little kid at times...

2. No one has touched my belly. Of course now that I am typing this I will be accosted the next time I go anywhere, but so far there has not been a single stranger come up and talk to me about my pregnancy or try to touch my belly. I know about 10 people who are currently pregnant and they say they have all gotten this at least once - some have gotten it multiple times. I'm thinking either I just look fat or there must be something about me that seems unapproachable, haha.

3. I get sick ALL the time! Now I knew from reading that my immunity system would be lowered because I was pregnant. I had heard of my pregnant friends being sick so I eve got a flu shot for the first time ever! I was not prepared for the amount of times I would be sick this year. It seems like anytime anyone with so much as a sniffle gets near me, I get sick. I have had a stomach virus twice, 3 colds, and 1 sinus infection. I am so tired of being sick, and I still have 3 more months :(

Now, it may sound like all I am doing is complaining - so far that is all I have done;) so let me list some things I have really enojyed about pregnancy:

- Feeling my baby move

- Wearing maternity pants (weird, I know, but they are super comfy!)

- Going baby shopping

- Picking out a name - Elisabeth "Ellie" Katherine

- Dreaming about what she will look like

- Dreaming about what kind of person she will turn out to be

- Bonding with my mothers, sister-in-law over motherly things

- Having conversations with Jacob about what kind of parents we will be

Well that's about all I've got for now. Below are a few pictures of me to show comparisons of my growing belly :)

24 Weeks

28 Weeks

(Can you even tell a difference?! It looks the same to me, but I swear it's bigger!)

  1. Girl, blogging is my new favorite, obsession? It's addicting! I love finding new, cute blogs to read and follow, and it's gives me a great way to get all of my random ramblings out... and only people that WANT to read them actually have to! haha. At any rate, my point is that i am looking forward to seeing more of yours!
