Bump Watch - 16 Weeks

The shadow makes it a little hard to see, but I'm getting a belly! It's just little and cute right now. I'm really trying not to overeat just because I'm pregnant so my total weight gain so far is 2 pounds. I have an appointment with my OB on Thursday.

In other news, I have bid off on another job. I'm not too excited about it because I'll be working with cranky customers face to face. After talking to Russ about it, I decided I couldn't pass it up. My boss mentioned it to me and said that her boss had asked her if I would be interested. She also said, in a nutshell, that it was mine if I wanted it. I will be getting a .50 raise immediately and then another $1.00 raise 6 months after that. $1.50 raise within 6 months. I think I would be crazy not to take it. I hope it isn't going to be as stressful as I think it is. I have a hard time with disconnecting my work life and my personal life. I also have a hard time not taking things personally. We'll just have to see and I'll just have to work on my personality a bit. All in all, I'm excited about getting out of the basement and away from the drama that is created there....and also about the money.

That's it for now, folks! Have a great Halloween!

Congrats on the new job. I hope it goes well for you.

You look great girl. You remind me of me a lot. I didn't really show till about 20 weeks. The big baby belly will come soon enough. Ok, so you don't want to overeat and gain too much, but don't be too hard on yourself.
