Well my bump is coming along! I recently ordered a Maternity Belly Button Ring. I didn't even know they existed until my friend told me about them. She had to take her normal ring out and didn't get a maternity one in time so her hole closed up and she had to re-pierce it after the baby was born. Yikes! Glad I was warned. In other news, I finally got to see a podiatrist today. My arches collapsed starting about 6 months ago after running at least 3 miles a day in those Vibram 5-Finger shoes. I've been in a lot of pain, but my doc said it could have been worse. He couldn't do an X-Ray since I'm preggers, but he said he's seen all sorts of stress fractures in foot bones & other problems caused by those damn shoes. He said to stick to Asics or New Balance. Sadly, I'll probably never get my arches back. :( I loved my Vibrams at first until I learned the hard way they aren't for everyone! Especially people with high arches. Next time I go to Tripler (the army hospital here) it will be for my baby's anatomy ultrasound (ojalá)! Only 3 weeks away! Time is dragging by, I can't wait to find out already!
