Sprout | Maternity Clothes Update

Lately, I've been growing more and more.  Since about 11 weeks or less I was wearing maternity pants because it was just more comfortable.  I sit all day at my job and having my regular jeans dig into my stomach was just not comfortable for me.  I knew that I had purchased 3 pairs of pants to wear, so I just started wearing them.

Now, don't get me wrong, they don't all fit me.  I have to wear that bella band thing from Target to keep things up, but it's better than my regular jeans.  I do have my "fat jeans/comfy jeans" that I can still fit into and I do wear them from time to time.  Usually when I do, I end up wearing the bella band thing with them and undoing the top button 1/2 through the day for comfort.  It's working.

Aside from that, I've only purchase a few new tops.  Not maternity, per say.  Just a size bigger for comfort and for room to grow.  I did, however, buy my first maternity top the other day and it was on clearance so I just did it.  It's a cotton turtle neck with some of that bunching on the sides for growth.  It's great and will be great as I continue to grow.

It's been a little strange to watch my body.  I still haven't gained a lot of weight, just about 3 pounds at this point now but my weight and body shape has change.  Clothes sit differently on me and things don't fit like that used to.  It makes me feel like I'm gaining weight, but between the scale at work and the one at the dr.'s office, they both indicate about a 2 - 3 lb gain, so far.  It's just strange.

Anyway, just wanted to update you on that part of this pregnancy.

Pregnancy does change your whole body. Every new curve is worth it though. :) You are half way there!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
