Pregnancy- 15 weeks

Somehow this baby has been named "Baby X". Not sure how or why but that's what Chuck and I refer to shim as. (Shim being she/him- it's just easier).

I realize that I am very behind on my pregnancy posts. There are a variety of reasons for this but they're all just excuses so I won't bother.

So here are a couple belly pics:
13 weeks

14 weeks

Two things about those pictures:
   1. I'm wearing the same shirt. My "it's a 110 degrees outside" wardrobe consists of tank tops. Apparently I should buy some more colors.
   2. I can't believe I already have a belly.Trust me, I know that I will be getting MUCH bigger, but sometimes I see my reflection and I'm still surprised that I'm pregnant and that I look pregnant. The problem is that no stranger would say "hey, that girl's pregnant"... I just have a belly that makes me look fat. Oh well. That will change. 

And finally, my 15-week picture!
This belly might also be influenced by the fact that I had just eaten a huge dinner.

I officially cannot wear my jeans anymore. Luckily (I suppose it's lucky??), I have worn so many different sizes in the past 2-ish years that I'm still not in maternity clothes, just in the next size up. 

My next Midwife appointment is Tuesday, so I'm excited about that. I just joined the Y (running when it's 110 outside is no fun), and would also like to start doing some weighlifting. But since I haven't lifted weights since we left Alaska (no joke!) I wanted to check with her before starting. Running is still going well... I'm doing 3 miles a day and generally doing some other form of cardio as well, either walking the dogs or doing the elliptical at the gym. I am determined not to gain as much weight as I did when I was pregnant with Jade.

And that is all! Hopefully my next pregnancy post will contain just one belly pic and not be quite so random!
