Oh well, I'll just have to continue to keep my eyes peeled, and I always have the Target desk as a backup! I'm leaning toward something that is more of an espresso or dark walnut finish, to better match the furniture in the living room, so I guess it's okay that I missed out on the first desk, since it was more of a dark cherry.
And on the bright side, I do have some belly pictures to share! I'm actually 18 weeks today, but these pictures were from 16 1/2 weeks, when baby was the size of an avocado, so we decided to include the avocado as a point of reference. As for Elvis, I'm not sure whether he really wanted to be part of this photo shoot or whether he just wanted to eat the avocado...
|I still just sort of look like I need to lay off the ice cream for awhile. :-P|
|Elvis is such a polite little gentleman. :-)|
|I'm pretty sure this picture was taken mere seconds after Elvis licked the avocado.|
|Avocados are so cute. This week baby is the size of a sweet potato. Not nearly as cute. ;-)|
I still fit into all my regular clothes, which is kind of a source of mixed feelings at this point. On one hand, it's great that I haven't had to spend any money on maternity clothes (and thanks to some wonderful friends who will be lending me some maternity clothes, hopefully I won't have to spend very much at all!), which is great for our bank account. But apart from faint little flutters here and there, I haven't really felt the baby move, so that combined with a very sloooowly growing belly doesn't do much for my natural state of being a chronic worrier. ;-)
I've been trying my best to remember that my own mother's belly didn't really pop when she was pregnant with me until she was about 5 months along, and she didn't feel me move until almost that point either, so it's probably just genetics. I need to relax and be grateful that I seem to have inherited good pregnancy genes. :-P
To the other mamas out there - when did you "pop"? When did you feel that first real kick?
