There is very happy baby news today. My good friends Amy and Joe now have a beautiful baby girl Ashley Michele! Congratulations Amy and Joe and I can't wait to meet little Ashley!
With that news I feel inspired to update my blog :)
I am happy to report that I *think* I am starting to feel some relief from my first trimester ickiness (I made that word up). I am finding that I don't have to eat quite as often in order to feel human and have some more energy. I was able to start walking and doing my pregnancy workout DVD's again.....ok I only did it twice but its a start!
I had my first adventure with maternity clothes shopping. It sounds strange but I am actually looking forward to "showing." I don't look obviously pregnant yet but I have seen others who are just as far along and clearly pregnant...I'm jealous! I'm probably going to look back at this post in a few months and scream :) I've heard that maternity fashion is quite expensive so I took the opportunity to stop at the Wrentham Outlets on the way home from a conference in Falmouth.
I was fairly impressed with the selections out there. I was able to find some cute outfits for the summer that I could even start wearing now. The nice thing is that they will grow with me. I had particular fun with wearing the "baby to be" prostesis which mimics what you will look like at 7 months pregnant. It was fun to see what the clothes will look like in the near future.
My next doctor appointment is coming up in a few weeks, I dont think it will be anything more than a simple exam and blood work but the one after that will be the BIG ultrasound!! :) I really can't wait......
In the meantime I will be grateful that I am feeling better and will be able to enjoy my upcoming summer trips and time off
