Craving today...

Raisinets. Oh my goodness. Thankfully enough The Husband went out around 1:30 to get me two boxes of Raisinets. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate. I ate half the box of dark chocolate before I had to hide it away in my desk.

You want me to put that WHERE?!

So after perusing for maternity clothes, Jeremy asks me if I needed to buy special undies for preggos. I thought about it a second and thought a size up might just work. Maybe some of those fancy granny undies that are totally hideous (but you know must be oh SO comfortable). But OH NO. has THONGS in their maternity section. Please, I ask of you, what the HELL does a pregnant lady want a thong for?! Not only is every part of you uncomfortable, do we have to also go down there as well? God knows that the dreaded "panty line" is pretty much a non-existent problem at this point, since 1. I don't really care what my butt looks like at this point, I know it's getting bigger and honestly, no one is looking at my butt and 2. Maternity clothes just aren't meant to be "clingy" considering all the stretch that they have in them. Once I've worn my maternity jeans once, they're all baggy and stretched out. So really, thongs are just not needed!

Seriously, get the grannie pants. I'm sure your butt and your baby will thank you.

17 Weeks!

Here is my first belly shot. Please note, I just ate dinner. :)
It seems that I went from "barely showing" to "Yep, she's pregnant" in the course of two weeks. How crazy! My halfway point is almost upon me. Somehow, I can't imagine what I'm going to look like in 18 more weeks.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Pregnancy Log 11.21.07

Managed to eat half of a meatloaf sandwich and fries for lunch. Feel a bit ill. Will try making ill feeling go away by eating two Mint Milano cookies. Have been chastized for "trying" to fit in my regular jeans. Still think they look fine on me, just a wee bit tight in the belly. Managed to make "frien-emies" at swim class. Note to self, when a fellow preggo divulges how sick she's been feeling due to morning sickness- keep cake-hole closed about your own experiences. Only seems to piss people off when you say that you didn't throw up. Will embellish morning sickness next time confronted with the same situation.

Over and out.

Belly Bump

Today my mom and sister took me to go maternity clothes shopping at Bellevue Square. I do admit that I've been avoiding these types of stores, with the exception of browsing and purchasing a few necessities at GAP online. (Give a girl a break, frankly some of those maternity stores SCARE ME! Honestly, does everything have to have a big fat bow on your chest?) But today was a lot of fun, Alyssa and Emily came along as well and made sure that "I looked pretty." They also provided a ton of comic relief, trying on the fake bellies in the maternity store. Apparently these bellies are supposed to make you look like you've got three more months on you. That scared the CRAP out of me.

In other news, there is nothing more satisfying than going into Target and finding EXACTLY what you've been searching for for two weeks. Yes, that's right, I found the cat santa hat. All I can say is, keep an eye out for the Calkins Christmas card this year.

I know I'm a big whiner but I really have to say how heavy my heart is when I hear there is snow in the mountains. I don't know why I even check the snow reports, but I just can't help it. Snow just dumped at Whistler. I just hope that next year I'll be able to get out there again. (Hopefully I'll be able to fit into my snowboard boots still!)

On a happier note, Project Runway starts tomorrow!! Woooheeee!

Lesson Learned

So let me just say this. If you go to Target and see something like- oh say- a Santa Hat for cats... GET IT. Don't hesitate and think "oh do I really need this??" because the answer is YES. YES YOU DO NEED IT. Don't hesitate and try and go back and get it the next day because you'll end up driving around to two different Targets and still won't find it.

Regret is a terrible thing, even if it's over something as stupid as a Santa Hat for cats.

Feels a lot like Pop Rocks!

I started to feel the kiddo moving around this week. At first I wasn't sure what I was feeling so I started to pay a little more attention. So far it's been a lot more consistent so I am pretty sure it's the kiddo. It feels a little like Pop Rocks in my lower stomach, just not as crazy as Pop Rocks. It's been pretty exciting and a little more real to finally feel the kiddo- especially since the only thing I've got going for me now is pants that don't fit and I'm banned from all things I really miss. Like real coffee, red wine and good sushi.

Our next check up is in four weeks, and we get our next ultrasound. That should be pretty exciting, as our first ultrasound was pretty amazing.
