Clothes & Rain

Well, I hate to admit it, but I had to do it. I had to make the switch from regular to maternity clothes. Compared to the other children this is really early, but already I have begun to show (as TJ so kindly pointed out to me today!) and feel HUGE for the babies’ gestational age (9 weeks today). I tried to wear my regular clothes but each day it became harder and harder to squeeze my belly into restrictive waistbands. It was nice to be able to breathe today! I guess I am a little upset because I worked really hard to lose weight for our cruise (which I did). As a reward, I bought some new outfits just before we left. I literally only wore them 2-3 times, some only once. Plus, I usually lose weight the first 3-4 months of pregnancy because of nausea; however, since I’m not feeling sick (for the most part), I have already gained 2 pounds. That’s not a good sign! Oh well, now I’ll have more incentive to lose the baby weight once I deliver so I can fit back into my semi-new clothes.

On a fun note, we went on a family bike ride after supper. It was nice and sunny, with a little breeze blowing to help keep us cool. We made it to the halfway point and turned around. About 2 minutes later, it began to pour! We were soaked by the time we got home, but the kids thought it was great and I did, too! It was fun to enjoy it with them.

*I am thankful for my children. All 6 of them.
