Week 16 brought Mother's Day! I have to say, I was a bit sentimental and spent the day imagining what life will feel like a year from now. Mr. Fix-It and I spent a lot of time driving between family's homes, and all I could think about having a car seat behind me! I really can't wait to meet this little one.
I've still been feeling great, and I'm starting to wonder when I'll really feel pregnant. You know that bizarro show "I didn't know I was pregnant"? At 16 weeks, I could make an argument for those women. I feel completely like myself and don't have any strange symptoms, cravings, or feelings. Sure, I'd probably have noticed that I'm awfully thirsty lately, but that would also easily explain the frequent bathroom trips. Oh, and the belly. It's definitely growing, but not huge. In plenty of outfits when I'm not standing sideways it really isn't obvious. Call me crazy, but I'm still looking forward to feeling like I've officially "popped". I'll report back when it happens. So, anyway, I'm starting to understand how people could go a while and not realize that they were pregnant. However, getting to the point where you're actually popping out a kid is a totally different story. THAT is crazy town. How do you not know!?
This week also brought a major milestone. I finally told work about the baby! I'm normally not such a weirdo - 16 weeks seems awfully long to wait to share - but the reality is that I was feeling anxious about anything going wrong and still wanted some privacy. Telling family is one thing, work felt like another. Granted, we'd already share the news with facebook and the blog, so logic was clearly failing me. Everyone was excited and supportive, and the next phase meant planning with clients. But that's a different post for a different day. Or not. You know, HIPAA and all.
