NOW are you showing? I dare say YES! I’ve been attributing any extra bump to bloating etc etc but it’s undeniable. It’s a wee bump, but it IS a bump, and it’s present even when I’m NOT bloated (which-- truth be told-- isn’t very often). As Lowell would say, “You’re not bloated. It’s not gas pains. You’re PREGNANT! There’s a LEMON in your UTERUS for crying out loud!” (I may have done a little bit of ad-libbing there). In fact, I think it’s time to start including profile shots. Good-bye abs!
Any cravings? I’m loving cinnamon raisin toast (with BUTTER), grilled cheese sandwiches (again, BUTTER), green grapes, oranges, and popsicles. I also admit that there have been a FEW stops at Booster Juice. I’m pretty sure it’s the pregnant population that keeps BJ in business during the cold winter months. I’m also loving chocolate but trying OH SO HARD (and not so successfully) to control myself.
How are you feeling? Still low blood pressure (i.e., dizziness) and a little nausea/aversion stuff, but I really think the second trimester energy boost is starting to kick in (thank heavens). Now I can go back down to ONE nap per day (I WISH I was kidding).
How's my maternity clothing situation looking? Well, a little grim. Am I accepting donations? Why yes I am- how sweet of you to inquire! If you have XS or S maternity clothes that you'd like to temporarily donate to my pregnant cause... CONTACT ME (but no pressure). I've already purchased a few items (and frequented the thrift store!). There is so much more out there that I'd LOVE to invest in for myself (maternity clothes these days are CUTE), but I just can't justify it for less than 6 months (well, more LOWELL can't justify it for 6 months. I'm a girl... I can justify pretty much anything.)
