199 Days to Go!

Wow, we are under 200 days today – 199 to go – and it won’t be long before we are in the second trimester, which is amazing because on one hand, part of me is still getting used to the idea that I’m pregnant – while on the other hand it consumes me.  We’re fashioning an announcement for facebook/email to those who don’t know yet (or, to let those who do know that the secret is ‘out.’)

We took some belly shots this weekend which we’ll share soon. I did have a moment of panic when I looked and thought “oh-my-god-I-look-so-fat” – but that’s old stuff, and it’s ok. I know this is not “fat” per se; I know that my body will not be the same afterwards; I know that I am not naturally a very thin person; I know I am not 20, etc.. And, I know this phase of pregnancy *everyone* feels like they just look kinda fat and pudgy. So, I’m talking myself off the ledge. Scale says no real weight change – I seem to bounce around 1-2 lbs more than the day I got the positive test on December 16th. So, things are moving around – according to the books, my uterus is now the size of a grapefruit (up from a small fist). And it is/will be kinda fun to ‘look pregnant’ – it is a very exciting time. Even though we’re still “early” it does feel like I’ve been pregnant a long time already! Definitely trying to enjoy the journey…
