Here I am at 14.5 weeks. I have never been one to take pictures of myself pregnant, but looking back I wish I did so that I could compare.
I think there are a few reasons that I didn't:
a. I was so sick that taking pictures was the last thing I wanted to do
b. I was one of the first of my friends to have a baby so I didn't really see other belly pictures
c. I was a bit self conscious of my growing tummy
With Ariel I did take one picture at the hospital in the gown.
This time I have been taking a picture every week.
I feel like I look pretty good for being 14 weeks with baby #3. Like the girls, this baby is high, which is nice because I am still wearing my own jeans comfortably.
It is sort of difficult to take a picture of yourself without it being blurry and making sure you get what you want. I added the pillow since the black shirt made it a bit hard to see.
I really started showing this week. It was also obvious to my students. I had one girl (2nd grade) sort of joke and say, "Are you having a baby?" I told her I was and it took her awhile to believe me. Then I had another little girl (1st grade) ask me. Then she asked me again, then again. I'm pretty sure on Monday she will ask me a few more times.
I am anticipating a lot of tummy rubbing in my near future. I am perfectly fine with this as I had lots of kids rubbing my tummy with the girls.
It is really fun when they ask how the baby gets out. Sometimes I make up a story about something silly or I tell them to ask their mama.
I have been feeling better (as in not throwing up every single day), but I am still nausous about 100% of the time. Once in awhile I will still get sick, but its maybe once a week or so. I think it happens when the baby is growing. This is just my theory, but I like it.
We are excited to find out if it is a boy or a girl.
As far as naming goes we have a boy name, but the girl name is a bit of a challenge for us. We also have Annabelle's opinion to consider. I was telling her some names and she said to me, "I just don't like the way your mind works." It may take awhile to find a name the three of us like. I'm sure if James and I pick one that Annabelle doesn't like we will be able to change her mind.
