The midwife I'm seeing was kind of freaked out that I"m overweight, (I'm not supposed to gain any weight during the pregnancy, and if I lose at the beginning that's fine too.) So I have been weighing myself weekly just to see how I'm doing. This week I lost 5 pounds. Not bad. LOL If only I could lose weight that easily when I'm not pregnant. I feel like I'm eating constantly. Although since the morning sickness seems to have passed, I'm able to eat much healthier.

My body shape is definitely changing more quickly with this pregnancy. I'm 12 weeks and already growing out of most of my regular pants. That didn't happen until 4 months or so with Amelia. I went to Motherhood Maternity's site this morning and ordered some pants. I don't seem to have as many maternity pants as I remember having. Although I know last time I got a lot farther before I had to wear maternity stuff.

I got these (isn't that waist band flattering? I just LOVE maternity clothes.) Especially since I think they are rediculously overpriced, and ebay has gotten a lot more expensive as well.

I'm sure these ones have just as cute of a waist band as the ones above.

I did get some cute tops, thank goodness a bunch of my newer shirts from Old Navy are long, I can probably wear them most of the way through the pregnancy. I'm hoping for another miracle with this baby. With Amelia I lost 33 pounds from the day I had her to my 6 week check up. I weighed less than I did when I got pregnant.

I think I will like this shirt, I will have to wait until it gets here before I decide for sure.

There was something else I was going to blog about, but I can't remember what it was...

Congrats on thr weight loss! Good for you!

I like your new maternity clothes. I actually find them so comfy! I got lots at Old Navy Maternity. The style of summer shirts actually is very maternity like, so I have bought lots of non-maternity shirts that will accomodate my ever growing belly!

Cute stuff! If I weren't so tall, I'd offer you some of my maternity clothes. Most women aren't 5'10" though and my old clothes would swallow most women. I had such cute stuff, I hate them sitting around. Guess I'll just have to have another baby, huh? Yeah, right!

Ughh, my word verification is a mile long. Hate it when that happens.

I like the jeans, it looks cute. I love the fact that they make maternity clothes cute now-- not like 10 or 20 years ago.

Cute maternity clothes Steph. I hardly wore maternity clothes with my last pregnancy since I didn't really show until I was almost 8 months!! LOL. Glad you are feeling better and your morning sickness has eased up. Take care.
