I'm a 20-something new mommy who recently left my gig in the science industry to become a SAHM. I'm enjoying every second of my life here in Ohio with my husband and my sweet baby girl. Come along for the ride!
Okay. 10 weeks down. But I didn't even know I was pregnant for half that time. So in reality...time is moving very, very slowly at this point.
How Far Along: 10 weeks! The babes is a prune...which I find disgusting. Let's just skip that part, shall we?
Maternity Clothes: Here's the deal. My dearest, closest family members will undoubtedly tell you....I am cheap. I do not buy clothes. I just don't. I think clothes are cute...and I want new clothes...but when it comes to spending the money, I just can't. There are so many things that are more important to me. So this whole, "I need a new wardrobe" thing is kind of getting to me. My shirts clearly still fit (but side note...the girls hurt like nobody's business!) but the pants are a little tight. I just want to be more comfortable when I sit down, you know?
So mamas. Where should I start? Where did you go shopping for maternity clothes? What did you get? Did you get something you would grow into? I'm at a complete loss on this.
Sleep: Actually a little better. I'm still napping after work but I have been sleeping better at night. I'm just trying not to look at the clock when I wake up....just roll over and go back to sleep.
Food: I never thought I would say this, but I am so sick of eating. Yes. You are reading the right blog. I know. I don't eat a ton at one time...but I have to eat almost every hour or baby is not a happy camper. I'm still stuck on Nilla Wafers and blueberries, but I've recently added watermelon to the mix and baby is loving it. I am able to eat yogurt again...which is great! Oh, and string cheese! I LOVE me some string cheese.
And the gummy bears, of course. I did see the bottom of the bag this morning though and had a mini heart attack.
Best Moment of the Week: Hm. Can't really think of anything significant. I was kind of "outed" on Facebook by some well meaning family members congratulating me on my wall. How these people found out, I have no idea. The fact that we didn't want to tell people was completely lost on almost every single person we told. Lesson learned. So...I did make the official baby announcement on Facebook...which is a BIG step, right? Ha!
What I'm Looking Forward to: Being able to make it to the grocery store. And having a meal ready for Matt when he gets home from work. And our next appointment of course!
