Wow...I can't believe I went from 13 weeks to 15 weeks since I last posted. Truly, it's been going pretty quickly since 9 or so weeks, and I hope that trend continues! I am counting down the days (35!) until I next get to see Bowser and find out if it's a Chris, Junior or Little Lara incubating in there.
This week - actually just the last couple of days - I've really felt legitimately pregnant. No symptoms or anything, but just the fact that 15 weeks feels pretty solidly into this thing, and like it's okay to be showing, and like OH MY GOD there might actually probably be a baby at the end of all this. It's an exciting feeling.
I just got back from Vegas yesterday, after spending the week with Darbi and other photographers. Let me tell you...Vegas at 29 and pregnant is a very different experience than Vegas at 22 and drunk. Not that I've been to Vegas at 22 and drunk, but I've been there at 25 and drunk, so close. But we saw some girls dancing and drinking and acting like a damn fool, and I have never felt so far away from the point in life where they are. Half of me feels like I'm about to become a teen mom statistic (though I'm 10 years past that) and half of me feel ancient (my first baby at 30?).
I'm now anxiously awaiting the next huge milestones...feeling the baby move, which hopefully should happen in the next two weeks; the 20 week ultrasound; finding out if it's a boy or girl....and holy cow, I can't wait.
