Much like R. Kelly…

*note – this post originally was on this blog while I was “secret blogging” over on my pregnancy blog. in case you’re confused.

…I’ve been trapped in the closet the past couple of months.

Unlike R. Kelly, I have not been peeing on 15 year olds.

Anyway, this is my weird and lame attempt at spilling the beans, letting the cat out of the bag, blah blah blah.

I, your trusty blogger friend, am pregnant.

Indeed, dramatic prairie dog, indeed.

I’m just about 2 months along…so…7 more to go. I’m not huge yet…thank you very much, and have not thrown up once. (Knock on wood.)

I’m due November 10th.

If you’re really wanting to know more, (and I mean way WAY more…) I’ve been keeping a blog on the side so I can bitch and gripe about my knockedupedness.

So, yeah! That’s that. Enjoy, discuss, leave hate messages, you know…whatever.

Cleaning makes me sick.

It’s true.

I’ve only really cleaned twice since being knocked up. Once last Thursday, and again last night. Both evenings of cleaning involved vacuuming and laundry, and both resulted in me feeling like ASS the next day, with a backache, headache, and even a little nausea.

Granted, when I clean… I really clean. (Also, I had no choice with the super cleaning, our house was a PIT – it’s been since before Mexico (which was almost TWO MONTHS AGO) that I had actually cleaned.)

So, today…I pay for it. However, our bedroom and bathroom are spotless, and a couple loads of laundry have been done.

There’s something about knowing it’s going to be warm out that makes me want to clean. Like, open windows = vacuumed rug. I don’t totally understand, but whatevs. I’m glad the house is clean.

Also, ain’t it a bitch that while it WILL be warm today and tomorrow, the weekend forecast is for absolute suckage. Lamesauce. Looks like I’ll be holed up at home…which is fine. I still have to tackle the guest room and the (finished) attic…which is going to absolutely suck. I’ve been piling crap on the stairs leading up to the attic for months…and as a whole, there’s just stuff everywhere up there. So…maybe a rainy Saturday is what I need to get it done.

I think I’ll start doing these now.

Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming — setting up a significantly more attractive future. (Yes, let’s work on the attractive future. Mommy & Daddy are too good looking to have a wonky baby.) :)

11 weeks.

How far along? 11 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +/- 0, still. I fluctuate a bit, but still hovering around the same.
Maternity clothes? Maternity capris only. I had to send back the green dress from ON because it was too big (and I would never grow into it). :( Now I have to find a dress to wear for a wedding in less than 2 months!

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: It varies. Some nights are good, others not so much. Trying to train myself to sleep on my left side, but always end up on my back.

Best moment this week: It was WARM! Yesss. And I actually vaccummed. Even better.

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: PB&J, Cocoa Krispies, pickles.

Gender: Who knows.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out?
What I miss: This week, I missed beer again. It was nice out, and we were sitting on our patio. That usually equals a beer.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the first trimester screening set up. Still waiting for the call back from the hospital on that one.

Weekly Wisdom:
Sinus headaches are a beeetch. Get Sudafed on them ASAP when they strike.
Milestones: Being so close to the 2nd Tri, I can TASTE it.

Another "first."

Roughly 5 minutes ago, I experienced the beginnings of one of my first unprovoked “hot flashes” of pregnancy. It sounds like they usually come on in the second trimester, but I’m working through one right now. I’ve had a few hot flashes earlier, but most were during exercise or activity. Fun!

I also contacted our insurance and verified that they do cover the first trimester screening, so I called my clinic and began the process of setting one up. I’m already nervous. Typical. I’m sure everything is fine though. It’ll get set up anytime between tomorrow and May 5th (hopefully on a Friday so the hubs can come and see smudge again).

Other than that, the Mr. just called to inform me he just purchased Guitar Hero: Metallica, so I know what we’ll be doing tonight. (That and taking a belly pic!)
