Remember that time I had a blog? And I posted fairly regularly because I was a frosty box and loved to complain and tell you all about my lady parts?

Well, I started a new job and then got knocked up and slept every minute I wasn't consumed with either of those things. Which meant that I didn't really have time to blog. This baby baking business is hard work.

But I am doing pretty well so far. See for yourself:

I really hope Baby Joe grows into her/his large head soon. Head on the left, little baby body on the right, nubby arms on the side. SO. STINKIN. CUTE. to watch on the screen. I was able to trick my new Dr into giving me an ultrasound because I called about the pains I was having in my abdomen and was basically freaking out over nothing. No one really explained that the first trimester can be PAINFUL. Barfy, sleepy, yes. Painful sharp pains that are painful? No mention of that at all friends. Now that I know they're normal, I'm okay with it. When I thought it was the end of the world? Not okay.

I would post belly pictures, but really right now it's just food and not baby joe. I really just look fat right now. Which is starting to be a problem when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. My fat pants are starting to be my skinny pants. I went to Target the other day and bought a BeBand, which I guess is the Target version of the BellaBand. I really like the fact that I can go to work with my pants unbuttoned! I bought a pair of maternity khakis and I may start wearing them next week, but only because they are so comfy, not because I really need to yet.

My new job is fabulous so far. I haven't done any of the actual job yet, but I love it so far. I should be starting the actual work next month. Just in time to go on vacation to Disney! Everything is really falling into place. If only I could stopping feeling like I am constantly going vom all over my desk. I keep telling myself that it should (fingers toes and eyes crossed) be over soon. I'll be 12 weeks on Tuesday and that's usually around the time when the barf subsides.

My favorite part about all of this so far has been working at the movies. I think the theater I work at is more excited than I am. I also have been getting my best advice from the teen moms I work with. They really have a unique insight into pregnancy which I never fully appreciated until now. The rest of my coworkers have been so accommodating, to the point that it's comical. I'm not even showing yet, and they're letting me sit down on the job and giving me extra breaks. I wish they would pay me my full-time job salary, because I love that job!

So that's where I am right now. I promise as soon as I look more pregnant and less tubby I will post a belly pic. Does anyone know where I can find warm weather maternity clothes now for my trip next month? Everything is winter wear still!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Awwwww!! Isn't it crazy how fast they get to where they actually look like babies?? Love it!! And yes, they really should put the word out there that the first trimester is pretty darn uncomfortable!!

Can I just say, YAY for extra ultrasounds and good results, and YAY for actually LIKING a job! And HUGE YAY for DISNEY!

I just got a whole bunch of stuff at Old Navy for summer stuff, they also have online stuff with a bigger selection, I'm guessing Gap online has summer stuff now too!

Again, just YAY for everything right now, seriously. Well, except that we both just look fat, no where near pregnant, just fat. Oh well, everyone who judges can suck it.
