Sorry, internets, for my serious lack of pictoral updates.

But now, they are there…in all their glory.


Ack! Stranger comment!

Category baby business, other people are morons

While grocery shopping and browsing the ice cream aisle, a fine gentleman told me:

“You’d better feed that big belly of yours!”

PLEASE PLEASE tell me I look pregnant. If I just look fat and some dude says this, I’m going to curl up and die.

This was towards the end of my shopping. Before I even got in the store I was told that I have a “fine pussy.”

I’m never going grocery shopping alone again. I think this has just become the hubs’ duty.

Another reason why I hate CJ.

Category other people are morons

This woman is a gossip columnist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune. She mostly talks about Prince (since he singled her out in a negative way in one of his songs) but also talks about other totally lame celeb gossip.

Today’s headline?

‘Idol’ winner: A thing for thongs?
Cheek floss. Is this really what an “American Idol” winner Kris Allen includes among his Club Wedd Registry at Target?

Does anyone know what a joke is anymore? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a clue who Kris Allen is really (I’m not an avid AI fan) and I don’t give a crap about what people think of him, but I’m quite sure that this was a joke. For Christ’s sake – I registered for Hannah Montana Hand Sanitizer at Babies R Us a couple weeks ago, thanks to some coaxing from my BFF Martini. No, I do not plan on feeding it to my baby, nor do I want to let the baby play with it like a toy. IT’S AN EFFING JOKE.

So sad.

I hate TMZ too. Kind of off topic, but not really.

I’ve reached a decision.

Category baby business, I am awesome

Since the labor/delivery and recovery rooms at the birthplace have DVD players in all the rooms, I’m bringing Sex & the City episodes to watch. The hubs bought me the box set for Christmas; he personally cannot stand the show. But since I will be giving birth to our child, he will be forced to watch my it, nearly my favorite show of all time.

And so, it shall be.

Suddenly labor sounds kind of fun. :)

16 weeks.

Category baby business, not so much

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 1 overall.
Maternity clothes? Still massively enjoying my recent purchases. Although, I have to say, maternity shorts selection leave much to be desired.

Stretch marks? One more has joined the small cluster on my thighs. But I’m quite sure those were there before the spawn.

Sleep: Continually lame. I can assume it’s only going to get lamer. I never sleep through the night, and wake up just about every other hour.

Best moment this week: FEELING MOVEMENT! Woo-hoo!

Movement: Uh, see above.

Food cravings: Chocolate Cake. With vanilla ice cream.

Gender: After my dream? Girl.

Labor Signs: Nooo.

Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: My shorts. All of them.

What I am looking forward to: My doc’s appt this afternoon so I can hear the heartbeat again, hopefully!

Weekly Wisdom: Sigh. Again, hug your loved ones and cherish every moment.

Milestones: M to the O to the V to the E to the M – E – N – T!

This week ended up being a lot more tragic than we ever could have imagined. A good friend of the hubs and I suffered a brain injury on Tuesday evening, and after days of surgeries, prayers and hope, he was eventually taken off life support and passed away around noon on Sunday. He had many MANY friends, and all of us were very sad this weekend, trying to take the whole situation in. I’ve teared up a few times, but when a coworker sat down, gave her condolences and asked what happened this morning, I just started to cry.

His funeral will more than likely be later this week. I just hope that this is the last of the funerals before this baby is born. I know it’s not possible, but I just get worried with all the tragedy and sadness I’ve been through since being pregnant that it’ll somehow affect the baby. Just a worried momma, I guess – I know there’s no real possibility…but it’s just scary and sad that all this has happened in such a short period of time.

We’ll miss you Kelley, but we know our baby will have yet another angel to watch over him/her.
