Out of the closet

Well, we are now out of all available closets -- out to the family, out at work, out to our friends. I think, given that I'm pretty much fully in maternity clothes, that we're out to the rest of the world too. It feels great and totally weird at the same time.

Oh, and I guess I'm out to the blog world as well. I think it was time to change the title, no?

This Thursday will be 15 weeks. We have our regular OB appointment, and then we wait for our 18 week anatomy scan. I'm reallly excited to find out what flavor of baby we're having....because then that means it's time to shop!

I'm still feeling sick off-and-on, and have been having some killer headaches and back pain. I've always had a tender lower back, but the last couple of days have been pretty brutal. I've been reluctant to take anything, even Tylenol, since I've managed not to so far, but I think I'm going to have to talk to the OB this week and figure out a way to manage the pain.

Happy ICLW week to everyone, and my apologies for being a horrible blogger/commenter lately.....I'm still on the road, but will hopefully return to some semblance of normalcy later this week.

Congrats on coming out, and on the 15 weeks!

I've had lower back troubles for a long time, and am concerned about how to deal with it when my pg time comes. I used to see a very earthy unconventional Chiropractor who put me on an ice pack regimen. Just a towel and an icepack against my bare skin on my lower back while sitting. I know it sounds awful, and trust me it takes getting used to, but you may come to love it! I know I did.

Anyway, hope it clears up soon.

congratulations on the new title and being out of the closet. I know it's a little weird, but enjoy it. It's your time to shine and be a normal pregnant woman. :)

My migraines get so much worse during pregnancy. My OB gave me a 'script for vicodin. Believe it or not, narcotics are safe during pregnancy (as long as you don't abuse them) but motrin isn't. I always thought that was weird.

Huge congrats on your pregnancy and I hope it's smooth sailing.
