23 weeks

I am pregnant. I woke up with a charlie horse this week and I'm still limping around 2 days later. (If my dad is reading this, I actually read in a book that night that leg cramps are common during this stage of my pregnancy!)

Speaking of horses I have eaten like a horse this week as well. Wed. was secretary's day (or Administrative Professional's day to be PC) and the company took us to Kanpai Tokyo which is a restaurant where the chefs cook in front of you on a grill. I ate Hibachi Vegetables with rice and Jumbo shrimp then we stopped at Brusters Icecream on the way back to the office and I got a waffle cone with two scoops and I ate the whole thing! I didn't even feel full afterwards. I didn't eat very much for dinner that night though.

Other than my leg, I feel really good this week. I have a lot of energy and I haven't been having any weird mood swings either. I am starting to feel a bit awkward with my belly. I can't pick things up off of the floor or get out of my car as easily cuz my belly gets in the way. I can't imagine how it's gonna be in a couple months! Maybe I'll get used to it. Well, everyone have a good weekend!

22 weeks today

Current mood: grateful
Category: Life

Yeah!!!!! Ace is finally gone. That's all I have to say about that.

I'm 22 weeks today and everything's going well. I have to go to the Dr. tomorrow so we'll see what they say. I've gained 14 lbs so far and as far as I can tell it is all in my belly. If I gain 1 lb a week from now on (which is what my pregnancy book says you should gain) I will gain a total of 32 lbs. holy shnikeys! I'm gonna have to do some turbo jamz! (or something)

In other news, my power decided to go out this morning so luckily Matt woke up at 7:00 on his own. (we usually get up at 6:15 since we have to be at work at 7:30). I don't know why the power went out. I don't think it was windy or lightning or anything. Oh well, I was only about 15 minutes late for work (my hair was wet too since I could not blowdry it.) Hopefully the power will be back on at lunch time.

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you, I left the icecream out again this weekend. arrrggg!

Don't Tell Me.

Current mood: annoyed
I am very annoyed by people who have negative things to say about my name choices for my baby. I almost am scared every time someone asks me what I am going to name the baby for what they are going to say. Most people are nice and encouraging but there are some people (you know who you are if you are reading this) who have something negative to say about every name that I say I like. If you ask someone who is having a baby what they are naming it pretend you like every name. I don't want to know if you don't like that name. Pregnant women are very emotional and do not need a reason to cry, so don't give them one.

21 weeks today

Current mood: indescribable
Category: Life

I'm feeling the baby alot lately and my belly just keeps getting bigger. I will try to put a picture of my big belly on sometime.(if you all want me to). I think that it might be cool to get professional pictures taken of my belly maybe with Matt kissing it or something. Do you think that would be weird?

I was sad to see Bucky go last night...... mostly because he isn't Ace!!! Why do people vote for that Ace guy? grrrrrrrr (that's the sound of me growling in frustration) Bucky does live pretty close maybe I could meet him. He seems like a nice guy.....would I be a stalker if I tried to meet him? Maybe I should invite him to tea. (I would have to make him some sweet tea though) and his wife and twin brother could come too! then we could sit around and I can help him practice looking into the camera with puppy dog eyes like Ace.....I'll let y'all know how that works out.

20 Weeks today

I am 20 weeks today. I am finally at the halfway point. (that is if I carry him for the full 40 weeks.) I feel him move every day now and its so exciting every time. I just stop what Im doing and concentrate on my belly. Its kinda funny that my belly is so big that (to me) it actually makes my butt look small. It hasnt gotten any smaller it just looks that way.

I am so excited, we finally went and bought a washer and dryer last night (that was the biggest check Ive ever written in my life). They are supposed to be delivered today after 4:00.

Im glad that I dont have to go to my moms house to do laundry anymore, it was a lot nicer than the laundry-mat but its very annoying to have to take up half a day a week to do nothing but laundry, its just a lot of waiting and watching TV when I could be doing something more productive with my time.

Gas Explosion

Matt and I are finally going to get a washer and dryer. My dad came over last night and hooked up the gas so that we could get a gas dryer because supposedly their better than electric. I'll have to take my dad's word for it. I knew yesterday that he was coming over to do this for me.

This is all fine and good until.....

OK, so my friend Crystal posted yesterday that I should go to to see how I will die. I thought it might be fun....that is until I read my death prediction:

A gas leak in your home causes a major explosion, killing you in the blast.

needless to say, I was a little bit scared last night when my dad and Matt were working in the basement hooking up the GAS!!!

However, I am happy to say that I am alive and well today. Maybe I should get a house with no gas only electric. No... that would be crazy.
