Mommy's Little Grain of Rice :)

Today while reading one of my pregnancy books, I found out that right now the baby is the size of a grain of rice. So, of course, I then had to run to the kitchen and break out a bag of Uncle Ben's to see how big (or small) that really is. Oh and just so you all don't have to do the same....ITS TINY! HAHA.

Things are going well here at home. I'm still really bored most of the time, but I'm trying to take it easy. I need to be cleaning my house but I'm still not allowed to be pushing the vacuum yet. My Dr doesn't want me doing anything until my ultrasound on the 24th (T-minus 8 days). Once we hear a heartbeat, I will be released from 'special care' and will finally be just like any old pregnant women.

My pants are starting to get snug. Trust me its not because of the baby, I mean after all its only the size of a grain of rice. Its because I'm bloated! Seriously, I have lost 2 lbs (no clue how that happened) yet my pants are even tighter. Tight pants wouldn't normally bother me all that much, but when you sit down and they cut into your stomach, its hard not to worry now that you know something is growing in there. I think I am going to start using Sierra's rubber band trick. You know where you loop the rubber band around your button then through slit and back around the button. It just gives you a extra inch or so of wiggle room. Can't beat that!

Yay for a grain of rice!!! I love how they refer to the size of our babies to the food charts!!! haha, I have been sending or drawing whatever fruit/food the baby is each week for Matt! This week we have an avocado! Mmmmm :o) I remember feeling super duper bloated!!! And you know it isn't the baby because of the size of rice deal sooo that ruber band truly does help!!! My belly just started to show a little this week so I am back to the ruberband as well!!!! :o) This is very exciting and I can't wait until the 24!!!!! Hang in their girlie :o)
