A bit tardy

Sorry for not updating! I've been lazy for most of the day and then taught a class this evening.

I am officially past 12 weeks. Today the nurse started by looking for baby down near my pubic bone, since that's where she found the heartbeat last week. After I started to have heart palpitations, she reminded me to take a deep breath and relax because that sucker is really little and can be hard to find. But find it she did- now to the left and a bit below my belly button. The nurse has decided it must be a girl by the heartbeat and the fact that she "hides".

So all is good. I took the good news as an opportunity to do some online shopping for clothes. Gap, Old Navy, and a couple tops on sale from Motherhood. I should be good for a while... (Why does my head always asterisk those comments with "assuming all progresses well"....?)

Yay for new clothes!!! Old Navy has the best maternity tops/dresses, and it seems like they're always on sale! Target is good for underclothes and an occasional top, but their pants SUCK. The fabric is so unforgiving that I literally can't bend over when I wear their jeans. Motherhood has the most comfortable jeans out of all three, AND they have petite sizes, which I don't know if that's an issue for you or not but I'm freakin SHORT! Enjoy the new stuff!!!

You are doing well! it's impossible to relax I know, so just take one day at the time and eventually you'll have a baby to bring home and still will feel unreal!

A friend of mine had one who hid in utero and who crossed her legs when it was time to check for gender. They suspected it was a girl. Too much of a Diva to not be a girl. Yup, she's a girl & she's lovely.
