i never thought i'd wear elastic waistbands while still under the age of 60...

...but i sure LOVE the way they feel! that's right, i got my first maternity clothes yesterday. my mom in law took me shopping and bought me 2 new outfits. the best part is that the pants have adjustable ties so that i can wear them now without having them fall off. i am SO happy to chuck my old work pants that pinch my tummy into the back of my closet. ahhh! expandible comfort. the other thing i'm really excited about right now is that it seems my nausea has magically disappeared just as i'd hoped! i've not felt queasy for about one week now and, though my energy level is still quite low, i can actually open my eyes when josh kisses me goodbye at 6am. the only thing still bugging me is my stupid siatic nerve. it only starts to pinch when i'm at work, which is wonderful because then i get to limp around like a complete arse in front of a bunch of strangers.

i had a regular customer ask me yesterday if i was expecting. i looked at him cynically and said, "who told you?" he claimed that no one told him, he only guessed because my face looked "different". i chose to interpret the word "different" as "glowing" instead of "chubby".

i have a ton of pictures from this past weekend that i'd like to post, but they will have to wait as i will be late for work if i don't finish this up. they will be posted shortly, i promise.

There are so many cool places to get maternity clothes from now. Those banded pants are the best.

Yes, you are glowing!

Heidi... I LOVED maternity clothes... they were so darn comfortable I'd wear them all the time, no just kidding... you do get sick of them after awhile. But I got all this great stuff from a Motherhood and Mimi Maternity outlet that were soooo comfortable and didn't make me look like a house and I loved them. Enjoy the elastic waistbands and your excuse for wearing them. =)
