As of today I'm 25 weeks, and these pictures were taken about midway through week 24:
I'm pretty sure the papaya from week 22 was bigger than this cantaloupe...
...But my belly is way bigger than it was 2 weeks ago!!
Sharing a shot from the front this week to illustrate how different I look from this angle.
This is why most of my maternity clothes are still too big. ;-)
Glen and I spent Saturday afternoon weeding through and organizing the storage spaces in the house so we can start to make more progress in the office-to-nursery conversion, and I've started gradually moving my jewelry stuff into the bottom section of the secretary desk.
I'm amazed by how much of my supplies fit in there! Once I finish moving the rest of my supplies into the desk, I might have to do a post about how to fit an entire small business into a single desk, because aside the display supplies I use for shows (table, risers, tent, and a Rubbermaid container of tablecloths and jewelry stands), all of my office supplies and raw materials should all find homes!
Speaking of the jewelry business, my first show is this Saturday! Eek! It's going to be a busy week, but *slightly* less busy than expected, since my band rehearsal for tomorrow evening got cancelled. I still need to fill in some gaps in my finished inventory - I desperately need to have more earrings on hand, and I still have an entirely new style of necklaces that I'd like to have available in a few different colors by that time. If I have time, I also want to try out a new idea for added my logo to the gift boxes as well.
On top of that, I have a childbirth class at the hospital Tuesday night, an appointment with my OB after work on Wednesday followed immediately by a movie night at a friend's house (I will be bringing jewelry making supplies to the latter!), my usual Thursday night library shift, and a wedding on Friday. And of course, putting in my 40-hour week at my day job. Needless to say, I'll be spending most of Sunday napping!
