Hey friend!!! Glad you finally made your way over

I started looking at mat clothing last weekend... Pants aren't overly painful... though half of them seem to add an extra month or two to my pregnancy. I HATE 95% of the tops. The drapey look is just not what i"m looking for... maybe when I actually have a big belly. Right now... NO.

And then there's a matter of a coat... it's hovering around freezing and snowing here. The midweight fall coats the maternity stores here have are just not going to cut it... not now and most definatly not in January.

I swear the next person who says anything along the lines of "oh just buy a few sizes up/plus size who cares what it looks like" is going to die. I CARE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. I already feel fat and icky why on earth would i want to get clothing that make look me worse too.

I shop at target and.consignment shops. I found some super cute things at a local resale place.

Yay for hb!! Feel better soon!

Yesterday I spent 6 hours in the emergency room. The morning sickness got out of hand again and I got dehydrated and couldn't keep anything down. It took them 9 tries by 3 different nurses to get the IV in. I'm covered in bruises today, but feeling much better!!
So, so sorry. Hope the weekend is better!

Afm: insomnia. It 445am. Been awake since 215.
Had an appt today. Bp was 104\68 & hr was 144bpm!
& I found out I get an u/s for free! Thought if I wanted a 20w scan I'd pay out of pocket $450. Nov 19th!!!

15w and feeling okay.
