what a weekend

Friday was great…HOT but great…we went to a wedding, and the reception was outside, around the pool – YIKES! If you remember Friday was like 105 degrees holy moly. It was fun, lots of dancing, really good food, but it was HOT! And this pregnant girl could feel herself expanding like a hot air balloon.lol.
Saturday was a really fun day because it started off getting to see our baby boy! No I did not go into labor! We went to Invision Ultrasound in Folsom. I love going over there. Cynthia, the owner of Invision, is so cool and relaxed and takes her time to find the best positions to see you baby. I freaking love her! And the best part was little dude is growing and changing so much since the last time we saw him.
can you tell that’s a baby? lol…that’s him! He has his hands behind his head like in total chill-ax mode and it looks like little bubbles are coming out of his mouth. Such a thrill to see him! To see more about Invision Ultrasound and other pics of babies in the womb check out invisionultrasound.com !
Anyway so we were super stoked after we left and headed over to California Pizza Kitchen…love some CPK! We get their Greek Pizza…it’s so refreshing on hot days but still fills ya up!
Ok so Sunday rolls around and I am heading over to Whole Foods in Roseville. I am stopped at the light, first one in line, and just chilling there when WHAM! I hear a pop! I look behind me to see this women slam into me and the guy behind her slammed into her…so it was like a total chain reaction. LUCKILY there wasn’t a scratch on my car…but their cars were a different story…honestly I don’t know what made that guy push on the gas at a STOP LIGHT but who knows…I was a little frazzled to say the least but so thankful we were ok.
When I first got pregnant I read about this seat cover that tilts your forward so your seat belt isn’t across your baby bump. I also read up on exactly HOW to wear your seatbelt in case of an accident…I always make sure it’s low and across my hips and never across the bump. Many car manuals have a section about seat belts and how to wear them if you are pregnant. Check it out if you haven’t.
Anyway eventually I did manage to get my groceries, in case you were wondering. I also decided I deserve a treat. Whole Foods had a sale on these chocolate covered banana Popsicles- I am gonna go have one now. Much love and be safe!!!!

Hey Kelly,

It is so exciting to see that ultrasound. It is amazing what a woman’s body is capable of doing! I hope all is well. I love reading your blog and hearing your experiences while pregnant. It reminds all of us pregnant women that we aren’t alone.

I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I am 10 1/2 weeks pregnant and now all of my clothes are fitting tight and uncomfortable… more my pants/bottoms than tops right now. It is too early for me to be wearing maternity clothes and I don’t want to spend a fortune on maternity clothes anyway. Do you have any advice or ideas on comfortable clothing for this early stage of pregnancy. I still need to be able to wear it to work (office job) and lood presentable. =)

Thanks a lot. Sorry I didn’t e-mail, but I couldn’t find your e-mail address.
