I wore MATERNITY CLOTHES today!! In honor of such a momentous occasion, I took a picture, and I even took ... a BELLY SHOT!
Well, guess, what? I have lost SEVENTEEN pounds since getting pregnant, and I still gained THIS bump ...
So, NO MORE SHAME! I have a bump and it is not fat!! I'll just tell strangers that I am like 5 months along when they ask! ;)
In addition to all this excitement, Jeremy and my mom when to Babies 'R Us today ... and I got so overwhelmed that I cried. Kind of a lot.
The crib I thought I liked was WRONG WRONG WRONG in real life, and they didn't have the swing or bouncy seat I wanted to check out. I was also very underwhelmed by the car seat stroller combos. The seat does NOT seem secure in that stroller. What if we move to San Francisco and have to go downhill all the time and the seat pops out??
Anyway, it was all just too much. Like the first time I went shopping for my wedding dress and the consultant wasn't bringing me the dresses I asked for and I felt like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and left crying. The moral of the story is that I went back a few weeks later and the second dress I tried on was the one and I bought it and took it home with me and looked at it lovingly every day for 10 months until the wedding. So, the next baby shopping trip will probably be amazing. Right?
