I've been trying to take photos of myself every couple weeks to chart my 'growth.' I had Brandon take my picture over the weekend- he's me a day or two shy of 12 weeks (we were on our way to our date at the Melting Pot- yum):
And here's my picture the day after we got the positive home test (December 23rd):
It's a bit of a change, don't you think?
Just this week, I've started to not feel as sick to my stomach and I'm feeling some energy return. I actually stirred out tonight and got a new pair of pants at JC Penney's. It was a nice change of pace.
In other news, my sister passed her exam and is officially an RN! We are really proud of her. My kids are doing an amazing job at school- I'm working my tail off trying to get kiddos dismissed before the end of the school year.
Lastly, on the 'frugal' front, my friend Jeannette loaned me a rubbermaid tub FULL of summer maternity clothing, and a co-worker, Amy loaned me 2 HUGE bags full of maternity clothes. Between the 2 gals, I have over 25 shirts, 3-4 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of capris, 1 dress and 1 pair of shorts! It's such a blessing to be able to borrow clothing and save our money for the baby and my maternity leave.
