15 Weeks!

Thanks for all of the nice comments on my last post, ladies! It's so nice to know that, even after being absent for a week or so, this community is always ready to jump right back in where you left off. I love it!

So, here's the Week 15 recap:

Best Moment of the Week: Telling people at work I am expecting. My co-workers couldn't believe I waited 15 weeks to tell them! I am SO glad I did. I was with a smaller group of women yesterday over lunch - people I work with, but not my immediate team - and one had brought her 7-week old in for lunch. As I was holding her, I said, "I get to have one of you in my life in a few months!" The room fell silent, and I kept talking to the baby. "Yes, August 13 is the big day... I wonder if my baby will be a little girl like you, or a little boy?" The shrieking from the women was priceless.

Entertaining Question/Comment of the Week: One of my co-workers said, "You have the perfect tri-fecta of good things happening right now: baby, house, promotion." I couldn't agree more. I did venture out to say, "It's been a long road, trying to have this little one, and we couldn't be more blessed."

Obsessions: Wondering when I am going to be fully "showing." Sure, my belly is growing... Mr. D and I can totally both tell that. But I can't wait for the full on baby belly. I'm at that super-weird point of not-big-enough-to-tell, but looks-like-she-gained-some-pounds.

What I am Most Looking Forward to This Week: Starting my new job on Monday. Finally wearing my first pair of maternity pants to work... it's time to ditch the rubber-binder solution and jump right in.

What I Miss the Most: I kind of miss deli turkey sandwiches. Mr. D makes turkey sandwiches for his lunch, and it looks really good. I am not a fan of warmed-up deli meat, so I guess I'll steer clear. Oh, well.

Symptoms: Boobs are HUGE and nipples are getting WAY darker. It is the craziest thing I've ever seen. I really can not imagine them getting any bigger, but I think I am in for it...
