good news

I went shopping for my first maternity clothes this week. I bought two dresses and a pair of jeans.  I'm 14 weeks now and still not "showing".  Even though I don't look pregnant, none of my jeans or skirts fit over my hips anymore.  Today I wore maternity jeans for the first time.  I had to fold the big blue band over my hips and they were still falling off.  What's a girl to do?  Hopefully this awkward stage won't last for long.  
I also have to take a moment to brag about school.  I had such a high score on my humanities test that my teacher dropped my score from the curve so I wasn't the only person with an A. And last Friday my English teacher told me she wanted to publish my research paper in a journal.  This is pretty incredible considering how sick I've been and how little effort I've put into school.  Ben was amazed when I told him and said how it's unfair that all I do is come home from school and sleep and hardly ever do any homework.  It's true.  All I can say is that Heavenly Father sure has blessed me this semester.  Now that this semester is coming to a close, I look back and realize how blessed I've been to be able to make it to my classes and get my assignments done with as much ease as I have.
