Overall I’ve been feeling much better than I was a few weeks ago, but just as I type this I am trying to keep my dinner down. The constant nausea is gone but I have occasional to frequent visits from the Barf Fairy and tonight it’s hitting me pretty badly. The fatigue can get pretty intense but I’m managing to keep busy.
The doctor thinks I’m crazy but at certain times when I sit in certain positions I know I can feel the baby move. Not from the outside, of course, but inside.
Although this is still early in the pregnancy I’ve already noticed that most of my pants are only truly comfortable when they are unbuttoned these days, which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the pregnancy. I didn’t start showing until about 13 weeks last time so I’m two weeks ahead of schedule. This is to be expected after you have your first because your body has conveniently stretched things out for you already.
Jeans are kind of the worst right now so I’ve been turning to these ultra-1970s polyester pants for an easy waistband solution. I have some loafer-type shoes that I also like to wear with this (they are a pale heather gray) and from the waist down I feel like my outfit must be inspired by a dapper retired man in Florida. I really love these pants so plan to see more of them in the future. My only complaint is that they are just a tad too short. Even though at 5’3″ I’m technically petite I have the legs of a much taller person. I am 80% arm and leg and have a small torso so even though I’m among the shortest of my friends I often have to buy my jeans in “long” to avoid the high water look. In every other respect these pants are the best because I love me a good wide-legged, easy-waist pant.
The shoes I’m wearing were apparently purchased at “Old Nabvy,” a super exclusive store you’ve probably never heard of before.
Anthony bought the amber necklace for me a million years ago, and I don’t remember if it was at the Scandinavian festival or a ren faire or what. It was so long ago. I’m adding a purse to these shots because I have a ton I need to use and list but mostly because I’m not a model nor can I pretend to be and holding a purse gives me something to do with my hands.
So far I’ve taken these portraits outside in our backyard and this time Isobel was playing next to me while I adjusted the tripod and tried to find the best place to stand. She’s making a cameo in some of these shots and I hope she’ll join me again in the future, but no promises.
