thanks for all the positive comments about my letter. I highly recommend everyone write one, it just felt great. I must have started about 5 different posts the last few days and was really struggling with them but then this one just came pouring out of me. Only took a few minutes to write. And I felt so much better afterwards. When I posted mine, there was only 24 letters there...hopefully we can really increase that number.
In p-word updates, I'm 12w3d. Some people say I'm out of the first trimester. I'm waiting for the actual end of it, but I have to admit that I'm starting to feel more secure with all this. I've got tons of growing pains and feel the round ligament pain on my right side at least a few times a day. Not feeling better just yet though. In fact, my 24 hr round the clock nausea has gotten worse in the last 2 weeks.
I've started to sport a pretty serious bump, way too much the B.ella Band. I caved and went m-clothes shopping this weekend...and actually wore the jeans right out of the store. They were just so much more comfortable then having the zipper digging into my stomach and the back riding down. One question though...why the hell are those clothes so much freaking money? They've got such a monopoly going on it's crazy. I went with my soon to be SIL whom I just love and one of her other bridesmaids who just had a baby, I thought she'd have some good advice. First we went out to lunch and when she saw me she talked up my cute little bump and how I was definitely ready for the m-clothes. For once, I actually enjoyed it. But then, while we were eating, she asked how far along I was. When I said 12w, she spat out her food and asked if I was having twins. When I tensely said no, she said she would have put me at 20 weeks, not 12. I didn't even know what to say. Maybe I'll get brave enough to post a pic, but there is no way it's a 20 week belly. Plus I saw her when she was 21 weeks and she was a f-ing house! She was helpful when we went shopping, but I just could not believe that comment!
Now everyone go write your letter!
