Practice Makes Perfect!

I told you we were going to try the Bjorn out on the cat.

I am sure that she will be so happy when the baby arrives so we'll stop pestering her.

14 Weeks

I think I am in trouble when I start to feel like it's been FOREVER since I found out I was pregnant and it's only been 14 weeks. CRAP.

I don't really have much to show for it right now except for some pants that can't button all the way, constipation and the need to eat apple pie for dinner and breakfast. I guess it could be worse, huh?

I finally finished The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy and frankly, I'm a little terrified. Even the lady who was checking me out at the grocery store told me "They don't call it the Ring of Fire for nuthin'". UMMMMM- WHAT?! Yeah I think I may reconsider my decision to go sans epidural. Let's just say I'm keeping that option open.

Today Jeremy's sister gave us a Baby Bjorn and Jeremy is very excited to try it out on the cat. We'll see if she fits.

First Rule of Pregnant Lady Club...

You don't talk about Pregnant Lady Club. Second rule of P.L.C- don't let the Preggo go to the store after a workout and/or hungry.

Yesterday I spent the entire 45 minutes on the treadmill thinking about food. After a brief stretch and cool down, I stopped in at the grocery store for some milk. I left with 6 bags of frozen fruit, a bag of Babybel cheese, a box of Triscuits, strawberry ice cream, green tea, spinach and a bunch of other items that I am not sure why I grabbed them. I didn't make it out of the parking lot without ripping into the box of Triscuits and cheese. Oh well, when a girl has to eat...

Even though I didn't experience a lot of morning sickness in the last couple months (just a little bit of nausea) I'm finding out that there are a lot of foods that don't sit well with me after I've eaten them. So far on The List is:

-Anything deep fried (except French Fries)
-Vietnamese foods
-Chocolate (too much of it that is...)

Candy Beans almost made the list today when I started to over indulge at work. It was a stressful day and I wanted to rip my hair out. I shoved candy beans in my face instead.

Four Words.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.


Today I went home a little early from work and fell asleep for about an hour and a half. It was crazy, in that 90 minutes I had the most vivid dreams. I dreamt about a pink cat, a fire in my neighbor's garage and calling an ambulance for an old co-worker. It was indeed a power nap. I definitely needed it since lately I haven't been able to sleep through the night without getting up to use the bathroom or having to switch positions from side to side. I blame the kiddo.

Wednesday will mark my 13th week- pretty crazy to think how the last couple weeks have gone by so fast. I'm not really "showing" per se, although pants and tops are getting pretty tight. A friend of mine asked me if I had a "Baby Bump" yet, and I think it's more of "Baby Fat" than anything else. Could have something to do with the peanut butter and chocolate... hmmm.

What a crazy couple of months!

So it's been hard to blog lately for fear I would spill the beans. However, the beans have already been spilled to most everyone so I'm pretty sure I can go back to posting!
Yes it has been confirmed that Jeremy and I are expecting a little rugrat of our own April 30, 2008. Honestly, it is terrifying and exciting all at the same time. So far I've been fairly lucky in the pregnancy department- although this evening I decided that eating a whole Hershey's bar dipped in peanut butter was a good idea. I'm paying for my bright idea right about now, feeling a tad gross. :) I'll rethink my dessert choices next time.

I love this first picture of our little kiddo- it's clear that he/she is flipping us off. I think we'll have our hands full come May.
