After almost two years of trying, and 14 weeks of pregnancy, I think I can finally accept the fact that I am really pregnant. Though I am already ready to feel 100% “normal” again, I would not trade the feeling in for anything in the world. As I look at my stomach, I often wonder are my eyes playing tricks on me or is it getting bigger. Well it is still getting rounder and rounder. I do foresee purchasing a body pillow in the near future, because I have to barricade myself in the bed each night for comfort. Though I want the $60.00 pillow, luckily I am too cheap to buy it and a $12.00 pillow will have to suffice. As July 29 slowly approaches, we are getting so excited about finding out the sex of the baby. We are so excited that we have already planned our day following the appointment. Our first stop will be at Buy Buy Baby then Babies R US!!!! Of course we will be going out to get some good food as well. I’m thinking Texas Roadhouse or Surin West.
How far: 14 weeks
Sleeping: I don’t even want to go there. As I type, it is 5:25 am and I have been awake since 3:50 am and have to be at work at 8:00am. I would sleep better if I didn’t have to pee every 2-3 hours and I am just appalled by the amount of pee that comes out when I go. I always think “you woke me up for this” or “this could have waited until it was time to get up”. I often remind myself that what I am experiencing is nothing; the worse is yet to come.
Weight: Gained 3 pounds
Cravings/Aversions: Okay I have been eating green beans like they are going out of style! Green beans, tomatoes, and onions have been so good to me. We went to Mobile this weekend and I was able to indulge in some seafood that was absolutely delicious. I ate butterfly shrimp two days in a row and crawfish. The crawfish were so spicy that I just knew that I would pay for it later, but everything turned out fine. Needless to say, I did not eat BBQ, but I did get some to-go and froze it for later on.
I am very ashamed of the fact that I ate an entire box of butter toffee Crunch n’ Munch in one day.
