It’s amazing how far technology comes along each year.  I can take a quick picture, connect it to the pregnancy app, and make a “collage” on my phone. Pretty cool. Here’s 13-19 weeks, missing 15 weeks.

and here we are at 18 weeks, wow, I think the Christmas month got me onto some bad habits and I look huge in this picture!


My SIL’s baby shower was today so I actually look half decent and my hair is down! whew!
This weekend I had to put away all of my too short workout shirts and tank tops and actually bring up the maternity bin to see what was in there. Tops are starting to be too short. And I have one of those stretchy tight maternity tank tops that I have started to wear under everything – Love it! The jeans are bettona jeggings (elastic, leggings) from Athleta. Love them!!
Otherwise with it being winter, I have been getting by with oversized hoodies and stretchy leggings or athletic pants which I wear daily anyways!


Geez that mirror is dirty sorry!
