weekday wardrobe: we be bumpin'
Whew! The cat is finally out of the bag, and I couldn’t be more relieved. First, let me thank you all for your congratulations and well wishes. I have been DYING to tell you guys for weeks, especially because updates were becoming so rare--I didn’t want you guys to think I wasn’t interested in blogging anymore. I struggled with fatigue and morning sickness (mainly because for me, it was 24-hour sickness), so I’ve pretty much been confined to the couch for the last two-and-a-half months. Every time I thought the nausea was subsiding, it would come back with a vengeance, so I was in pretty bad shape for my birthday…and Micah’s birthday…and The Boyfriend’s birthday. I’ve finally turned the corner, though (knock on wood) and I’m excited about getting back to words & wardrobes.
So let’s talk details: I’ve just entered the second trimester—I’m 14 weeks along, to be exact. I’m going to admit that trying to convert weeks into months confuses the hell out of me, but I think 14 weeks equates to 3-and-a-half months (or maybe I’m entering my fourth month. See?! I have absolutely no clue about weeks-to-months conversions!) The baby is due at the beginning of April and we’re scheduled to find out in early November if this belly is Team Testosterone or Team Estrogen (The Boyfriend is thinking ‘snips and snails’ but my instincts, aforementioned debilitating nausea, and the unsightly acne that has suddenly taken up residence on my face are SCREAMING ‘sugar and spice’).
I’m telling you, people, it’s excitement all around these parts. From The Boyfriend to the soon-to-be grandparents and siblings to the proud mama typing these words, April can’t come fast enough. I’m so glad to finally be able to let you guys in on this exciting chapter of my life, but rest assured, I won’t be bore you with too much baby talk…or at least I’ll try really hard not to. I mean, have you seen how cute some of those onesies are?!
