Hello, internet! I just got done with one of the most stressful weeks I’ve had in a long time. Work stress, piled on top of exam grading, piled on top of general pregnancy nuttiness, created a perfect a storm of wigging out, since around last Thursday (sorry, hus-dude). But that’s mostly over now (except one more conference paper, and a full week of work), and soon it will be glorious spring break!
This is what I wore to my stress-causing presentation on Thursday (which went very well). These aren’t maternity pants, just a pair of GAP dress pants about 2 sizes too big (pre-pregnancy) that I picked up at the thrift store. From here on out- no more (non-elastic) waistbands for the next three months!
Here I am trying on some maternity jeans from H&M’s MAMA collection, which I was loathe to buy. (So I didn’t. Thanks to my prior pregnant buddies for the hand me down maternity clothes). I am 26 and a half weeks here. I’ll be 27 weeks on Sunday, which according to whom you ask, as either the last week of the second trimester or the first week of the third. Visibly pregnant, but still pretty functional (I can still touch my toes and do most yoga poses, but sometimes I get winded easily). Luckily, Blokey has taken over a lot of household duties (something that took my stress freak out session to establish, not becaue he wasn’t willing, but because I am a bit of a control freak).
My due date is exactly 3 months from now. Little belly buddy remains super active and snacky! Time to feed him some cheese.
Hope those of you on spring break are enjoying it. Or have enjoyed it. Or will it enjoy it soon. Those of you who don’t have spring break, well, there’s always the “Spring Breakout” episode of Arrested Development to enjoy…
