I finally caved and ordered some maternity clothes and they finally arrived yesterday. I am still able to wear my normal clothes, thanks in large part to that Belly Band thing I bought at Target. But, mom and Jarred both told me I should just buy some staples for my wardrobe.
Here is a simple blue dress I bought...oh yeah, and the ever-growing bump underneath!

But for all you dietetics people out there who might be interested in the MNT during pregnancy, I'm doing just grand. For my pre-pregnancy weight, I should gain 0.8-1 pound per week, every week during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Meeting my target protein intake is semi-difficult since protein makes me want to hurl, but I'm doing my best! And no worries for those of you who witnessed my calorie-counting days - I'm not counting them to ensure I'm meeting my needs - I just know I'm on track for weight so I'm doing good! :-) And, as previously eluded to in another post, my belly still looks no different to me than it did pre-pregnancy...just to further drive the point home of anorexia and warped minds.

But, things at the internship are moving along. We are about 3/4 of the way done with Phase II so I'm learning a lot about the liver, kidneys, diabetes education, etc. Our big case study presentations are next week, with our exam on Thursday (my next doc appointment is on Thursday too!!).

Oh, and Jarred has finally felt Kinsley kick!! Just barely, but I was still excited! And he saw her kick last night - she can really make my belly jump when she's in the kicking mood!

Welp, that's all for now I suppose!

  1. Oh the fun kicks!! I think it was in the late 20/early 30 weeks that Matt could put his ear to my belly and hear Lily's heartbeat...tell Jarred to wait for that moment!
