And so it begins...

Oh, Baby,

You are making me feel so giant!

Today, for the first time, I literally had trouble buttoning and zippering my jeans.

Now, I realize that this new expansion isn't because you are big enough to make my tummy big yet; I realize that it's because of bloating and fluid retention and such.

But it doesn't make it any less uncomfortable to have a hard time fitting into my jeans.

I have NEVER had to work so hard to button my jeans as I did today.

And I know it's only going to get worse...but technically better, not worse, because it'll be better when my expansion is because you're getting bigger instead of because of bloating.

I am really looking forward to seeing my tummy grow along with you :)

The weird thing, too, is that my clothes are all getting really tight, so when I went to my prenatal appointment, I assumed that that would mean that I have gained at least a few pounds.


I actually lost about five pounds.

I have absolutely NO idea how that is possible.

You daddy is constantly shoving food down my throat (lovingly, of course).

I feel like I'm eating non-stop.

I know the whole "not gaining weight" thing won't last for long, though...and honestly, I can't wait for my weight to go the opposite way.

Yet another tangible sign that you, Baby, are growing and thriving inside of me.

So don't worry about that fact that you are the reason my jeans are so tight.

I don't mind at all :)

I love you with all of my heart, Baby!

  1. How exciting! Even though it's just baby bloat, and not the actual baby, it's fun to have some sort of physical "proof" that you are pregnant.

    I went for a long time using a rubber band to loop through the button hole and around the button on my pants. It worked like a charm for awhile... but before you know it you will be needing maternity clothes!

    Hope everything is going well - I'm so happy and excited for you! I'm especially excited to read about your ultrasound results! I have my big ultrasound next Monday, where we find out if its a boy or girl.

    There is nothing like seeing your baby for the first time - nothing. I can't wait for you to experience that for yourself!
