I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Growing Everyday

8.5 weeks pregnant and my everyday pants are officially too small!!

I would have been out of them about a week or so ago but that was unwashed. There was no way I was fitting into my jeans washed!

I'm happy. Out came all the 'fat' pants and the maternity tops. The maternity tops are a little premature, but they are just so comfortable and cute! I wore a maternity looking top and skirt to church this morning and got all the oos and ahhs that I was showing.

Can't say I didn't love it!!

I realized after going through my clothes that I am not going to wear any of my summer gear until June 2010!! Into the Bin they went. In fact, I think as I outgrow thing s I will pack them away. Not to be seen until spring 2010.

I also realized that I have given away or sold just about all my maternity gear I did not love. So...to the second hand stores I go for cute dresses and summer maternity outfits. It is my fourth and last pregnancy and I'm determined to love my clothes.....and myself.

I don't want a lot of clothes (too many choices overwhelm me anyway). Just a few cute pieces that will carry me through the season.

I was hesitant to buy a couple of in between pants (for now till April), until my friend reminded me that I will still be able to us them after the baby is born....September till at least Christmas. Thanks Val!! I've also heard some great things about the BELLA BAND... Any thoughts??

I absolutely love the bella band! It works great while pregnant, especially with the shorter maternity tops...but I am still wearing them now, even though Karrie is already 4 months. They work great with the low rise jeans, while nursing! (-:

Congrats on the pregnancy...hope everything goes good for you! Take care.
