I asked my husband to take a bump photo. He assured me that it was great. And that’s the face I was making. My double chins and I no longer trust him.
It’s happening, guys. Random people are starting to make comments about the tummy. Lots of folks asking if it’s my first, and a few really sweet comments. But mostly it’s stuff like, “Well enjoy the first year because after that it’s terrible.” Or “You have no idea what you’re in for.” And I always just sort of smile noncommitally and move on, but I really want to let those people have it! Listen, I know that a kid is going to be the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and that every moment will be an exhausting challenge. But who says you can’t find joy in that? And why would you go around spreading misery about your children when you could celebrate instead? And why in the world would you say these things to a complete stranger? Deal with your issues on your own time, bro. You guys know my philosophy — life is what you make it. And my plan is to keep that mindset going for as long as I humanly can.
Rant over! What else, let’s see… Getting up and down is becoming a little cumbersome, but I try to pretend that it’s not. Ha. Gotta hang on to that mobility for as long as possible. I can still touch my toes, so I consider this week a win! Here’s more. xoxo
EATING everything bagels with onion cream cheese. Oh. My. Lord.
DRINKING Diet Pepsi with one ton of ice and I ain’t sorry about it.
READING Baby Wise. Any moms out there read it? Yeesh. It’s a little intense. They’re like, “You could do things this way or you could do things that way. But if you did things that way you would be stupid and a horrible mother. So do things this way.”
WANTING to sit directly in front of the air conditioning vent at all times. I’m. Hot.
SLEEPING okay! I found this magical pillow combination that involves a Bump Nest, which is the best pillow in all the land. Pregnant or not.
WEARING whatever doesn’t make me sweat or look like an egg.
FEELING a little wobbly in my heart. Anything nice makes me bizarrely emotional.
LOVING that I’m not having pregnancy headaches any more! There were a few weeks there where every day I would get these splitting headaches. And one day recently I realized that they were just… gone. Major.
