Win/win in my book

Thanks for the big welcome back. I promise to not disappear any time soon. As also promised, I've got some belly pictures to share but not until the end. First I want to talk about baby girl clothes.

I have been wistfully looking at and admiring baby girl clothes for EIGHT YEARS. It's been eight years since the immaculate conception of Simon. (Dad, if you are reading- it was my first time. I swear.) Now that the opportunity is finally present and it is socially acceptable for me to actually purchase said baby girl clothes, I can't make the jump. I can't buy anything. And trust me, I've been looking. I've been watching online and visiting stores. I've even joined Zulily.com (Anybody want a referral link?!)

I think it's a mixture of disbelief and fear. It might not be true. (Kinda like those first pee tests I took eight years ago except it was more like PLEASE, God, don't be true.) The sono could have been wrong. Things could not work out in my favor.

Anybody else have this problem? Clearly a sign that I truly am the one with issues?

It must be noted, much to Matt's dismay, that I'm not having any trouble buying cloth diapers. As my stash grows, I will share pictures and tips. So far, I've only bought a few used Goodmama newborns and some used FuzziBunz. Today, though, I managed to score this delightful, wonderful, pretty floral, new in package, poop catcher: 
Wine Country on OBV sideview 
 
I know. It's almost too beautiful to catch poop. I only accomplished this because another GoodMama on Facebook, who I don't even know, grabbed it off Spot's Corner for me. She remembered that I was in search of one and sent me a message with an offer. Her unexpected, gracious act of kindness made my day. 
 
In other baby girl news, I had an appointment today with the nurse practitioner. Baby girl's heartbeat was around 150 beats per minute and my blood pressure was great. I also have been feeling pretty good and it's been at least a week since I've thrown up. It's progress, so I'll take it. Consequently, I have even managed to gain TWELVE pounds so far.

I am ashamed.  
23 weeks
 
The good news is that although I've gained weight, my uterus is measuring more like 22 weeks. (I should be more like 23 or almost 24 weeks.) So we scheduled another sonogram in four weeks. 

Which means I have all the more time to obsess about baby clothes and buy more diapers.

EDIT: I was thinking about my weight gain the other day. I started this pregnancy at 135 lbs and I currently weigh 143 lbs. So that would be 8 lb weight gain thus far. Apparently nurse can't subtract and I'm too stupid to notice.

7 lbs away from my highest weight ever. This isn't looking great.
