Last week, Lucas and I had what is most likely our last getaway before Emily arrives. We headed down to Fredericksburg for a few days and nights of relaxation. We shopped, slept, watched TV, ate way too much yummy food and enjoyed being together. Unfortunately, Lucas ended up having to work quite a bit more than he expected due to some circumstances back at the office, but we still had a good time. Baby Emily got lots of new cute toys and clothes. I was pretty much in heaven looking for fun girly things. Although Lucas wasn't having quite as much fun shopping as I was, he did get to pick out a little stuffed weenie dog for her. It's crazy to think that on our next vacation, our little one will be with us. I think we will make sure the grandparents are in tow for that one!
These past couple of days I have definitely begun to feel pregnant. The second trimester is supposed to be so much easier than the first one, but it hasn't been for me. I was blessed with an insanely easy first trimester, so it's quite possible that what I'm dealing with now would be bliss compared to the first trimesters of many. I don't really feel bad, but I just feel pregnant. Every once in awhile, I think I feel her moving, but since I've never done this before, I'm not totally sure if it's that or if it's all in my head. Either way, I certainly feel like there is a little something growing inside of me. I'm definitely showing, but at this point I think it's mostly just because I can no longer suck in my stomach. Good posture (not that I ever had it) is quickly going out the window! I bought some maternity jeans last week, which have been very comfortable, yet quite droopy. I'm thinking that I will be living mostly in dresses this spring and summer, which is okay by me!
I've also started Emily's Wish List on Amazon. This isn't a baby registry, but just a few things she's told me that she wants. There isn't much on there now, but I am slowly adding as she finds things she likes. Check it out if you're a doting grandparent, aunt, uncle, or friend. She will definitely thank you!
