11 weeks 4 days

...and getting SO CLOSE to the end of the first trimester! THANK GOODNESS!

I had to drive to VA for work the past two days which severely affects my normal work day routine and thus, my ability to function. I had to be up by 4am each day, get ready, and then drive 2 hours to make it there by 7am. After the 8 hour day, I then fought traffic for 3 hours to get home and crash in bed by 7:30 when, yes, it's still light out. Whew... it's not easy normally, but being pregnant and tired and hungry makes it even worse. Let's just say I'm happy to be back to my normal routine today :)

Also my pants REALLY don't fit anymore. I don't get it cause I only weigh 124 lbs, which is 4-5 lbs more than I weighed before getting pregnant and doesn't seem like a lot of weight gain, but somehow my stomach just looks SO bloated. The internet says my uterus is now the size of a grapefruit and baby is the size of a lime - lots of fruit going on inside me right now - so I guess that's why. But still, I wasn't expecting to have such a hard time with clothes already. I can't believe I'm admitting this on the internet, but I literally drove the whole way home from VA yesterday with my pants pulled down because it was that uncomfortable. Don't judge, it's a 3 hour drive people!!! Sigh... I've had 2 pairs of maternity pants in my "cart" online for like 2 weeks but haven't committed to paying the $50 for them yet... I'm thinking I just need to pull the trigger on that. 

Good news is I'm taking off Friday for Kyle's birthday which means 4 DAY WEEKEND!! Super excited to have some time to relax and have fun! Also, it will make the last few days before our next appointment go quickly!

Can't wait to hear that baby's heartbeat again! :)
