Stars and maternity jeans.

Apr 21, 2010

Bennett is taking an astronomy class right now at West Liberty and got to go on a field trip over the weekend to Green Bank, WV.  It’s about five hours south of Wheeling and has a telescope down there that covers 2-acres of land.  Holy crap.  That’s a big telescope!  Unfortunately, he didn’t get to play with that one.  He did, however, get to use a 40-foot telescope that allowed him to view hydrogen gases making up part of a spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Nerd stuff…but cool nerd stuff.

I missed him all weekend but Bennett seemed to have a lot of fun down there.  (He’s never allowed to leave me again, though.)

Oh….and here’s the latest picture of my belly.  Let me tell you, I’ve really started to show!Week 22 - 2010.04.20

I never thought I’d be one of those girls that would give into the temptations of maternity clothes – but I have.  Most of my clothes have been forgiving enough but my jeans haven’t been.  Jeans just don’t stretch like I wish they would.  Who knew?  So I went shopping the other day and found a couple of pairs of maternity jeans that I don’t look horrible in.  And let me tell you what!  I LOVE maternity jeans.  LOVE them!  Seriously…why haven’t I been wearing them my entire life?  I think Bennett might have to hide them from me once little Louis is here.  Or do some sort of intervention.

Oh boy.  I’ve become a crazy pregnant person and we’ve still got four months ahead of us.  Say a little prayer for us.

    I loved my maternity jeans as well. As far as tops though, I bought a few and wore them out. Not something I needed to keep forever. (And since we lived in the desert and I worked at a mine, simple t's worked best pregnant or not!) The jeans/shorts though…. You'll wear for a few months after baby comes, even if you get your figure back immediatly!! Comfy!
