Well, where has Monday gone? I had a very busy day at work today, but I had to show you my very first maternity-wear purchase!! For mother's day, my parents got me a gift card to The Baby Bump on Magazine Street for a pair of maternity jeans. So off we went on Saturday to score a pair. Well, about six pairs later, I think we concluded that the baby doesn't live in my tummy, but instead (s)he lives in my bum. It was a challenge to figure out what the best fit was when I don't know how my body will change over the next few months.
So we put the jeans on the back burner (I think I'm going to re-visit the issue later on in the summer), and I found a pair of Olian white linen wide leg pants that are as comfortable as they are stylish! I imagine wearing them with tank tops and light weight sweaters and espadrilles wedges. Oh la la!!! Aren't they fabulous?
I'll be fourteen weeks this Wednesday, and I have my second doctor's appointment. I was just so nervous at my last visit. I couldn't wait for the doctor to tell us that everything looked perfect. The moment the image of the baby came up on the screen, my heart grew. It was just so amazing to finally see the baby and to hear the heartbeat. I thought I'd be prepared for that moment, but it took my breath away. To realize that there was a baby sharing in my every breath was so incredibly special. While I still have six weeks before we get to see the baby again, I am so looking forward to hearing the heartbeat and knowing that all is right in there.
