I have a friend who is also pregnant, about 6 weeks ahead of us. This is her third pregnancy. She had some maternity pants that didn't fit her - and did fit me. Wow. The comfort difference was astounding. I couldn't believe it.
So while The Hater was still out of town I went back out Saturday night to look for maternity clothes on sale at Ross and Old Navy. I came out with a pair of khakis and jeans from Ross, both at great sale prices. Then I found two shirts (one short sleeved and one three-quarter sleeved) on clearance at Old Navy. I was super excited with these finds because I had looked at maternity clothes at the mall on Friday, and the prices were outrageous.
I can still wear most of my scrubs, but they're getting tight in the middle. Prior to now I really liked the drawstring pants, but now there's really no need for a drawstring. I can hold them up just fine on my own. Pregnancy: for people who hate to wear belts.
This week we're working on the 12th week. I figure we're 2 or 3 days into the 12th week. So far so good. No awful symptoms to report, other than fatigue, which I already knew too well.
I do have one amusing symptom that drives The Hater nuts. I have had some especially aromatic farts since before we knew that I was pregnant. I'm talking eyes-watering-clear-the-room farts. These usually happen at night, which is good for me - bad for him. It's quite possibly my favorite symptom of pregnancy because he can totally share it with me. Over and over and over.
