Now that I'm 19 weeks in I feel it's time to reflect back over some personal observations I've made. Overall this pregnancy has been fairly easy. I've been lucky. I've really not suffered any morning sickness. I have gotten sick a few times but I've noticed it happens when I first get up or when I wait too long to eat. So I think all sickness is related to lack of food in my stomach.
Observation number 1: Sometimes I'm crazy. I find my moods are going from slightly annoyed to severely irate in like 2.5 seconds. This prompts me to take it out on whoever or whatever is around. Yes if I could have gotten my leg up there I would have kicked the crap out of the work restroom towel rack. It's completely unacceptable to be without paper towels after washing ones hands. I'm also finding I have an uncontrollable urge to throw things at people when they annoy me. I feel if I could just chuck my cell at them the problem would magically disappear......or I would be labeled Naomi Campbell. Some days I'm willing to take that risk.
Observation number 2: Pregnancy finally turns flat chested women into under ware models! :) By far the best part of pregnancy. I noticed that more (OK I'll be honest, actually cleavage) cleavage was popping out of my shirt and so that meant it was time to make a trip to Victoria's Secret and give it further investigation. I took a variety of sizes into the dressing room to just 'see' what was going on. As I kept trying on the next larger size it hit me....Little Miss A Cup is now a C....Oh happy day!! While I was doing my best 13 year old girl squeal in my head, I was freaking out on the outside. What does one do with giant boobs (OK when you've never made it out of the puberty bras a C cup is GIGANTIC.) So I came to the conclusion....You push them up! And push them up is what I did!!! :) If they are going to get even bigger and turn into nasty, giant baby feeders I'm going to get as much enjoyment out of these second trimester blessings as I can!! The only draw back I've found so far is getting crumbs stuck down in there. Donut and chip crumbs don't stand a chance! No one warned me of this boob hazard.
Observation number 3: When I say it's time to eat. It's time to eat! I don't mean I can wait 10 more minutes. And yes I must lie on the living room floor while you scurry around and find me a granola bar. I don't have the energy to hunt one down myself. Toss me my purse I have like 10 in there. Don't spend 10 minutes telling me I'm faking it because when you come near with said granola I might bite your hand off.
Observation number 4: Time flies so fast! Waiting for confirmation that there was an extra heartbeat inside of me took forever! Waiting for confirmation that the spotting was perfectly fine and my baby was growing took forever! I never thought 8 weeks would get here. Especially when I got a positive test at 3 weeks pregnant! Those 5 weeks were agonizing!!! But once that heartbeat was confirmed my time has flown by and soon we are going to find out what this little parasite taking all my nourishment and causing me to become a crazy psycho granola bar hunting woman is going to be! In a few short days I'm going to be half way through this pregnancy. And before you know it I'm going to be at the hospital completely overwhelmed by the task in front of me. And yes dear that's why we have to get this nursery together now! Because one short day from now I'm going to look at you and so 'OH MY GOSH WE ARE HAVING OUR BABY!!' So when that happens Mark you are going to be so thankful that I had the foresight to plan ahead for once and make you organize all those random X-Box parts and get them out of the floor of our baby's room! :)
So today I am 19 weeks and 2 days pregnant and counting down the days until I am 20 weeks and 5 days pregnant and finding out if we will be decorating the room in dinosaurs or flowers.
