Fruit: 12 weeks.

As you move into the second trimester, baby shifts into the growth and maturation stage. After weeks in the critical development stage, almost all of baby’s systems are fully formed.

Also in my email today from the bump – Is the dizziness hitting? Want natural headache relief? – it’s quite ridiculous how predictable this pregnancy is…well, I’ve been having brain splitting headaches for 2 weeks now, and the dizziness is the worst (mostly only when going from sitting/laying down to standing). I’m actually going to call the clinic today about my headaches. I pretty much have them 12 hours out of every day. It’s really starting to suck.

Another first.

Category baby business, not so much

This is so disgusting, I had to post it. Someone has to find humor in my agony.

Pregnant ladies have gas. BAD GAS. This is no secret.

I’m sitting on the couch, watching the Twins while the hubs washes some dishes, and let out a fart.

It’s not an SBD. (Silent but deadly.) There’s an audible noise.

But it is deadly. And I suddenly want to vomit.

My own flatulence has caused me to dry heave.


I totally failed to notice…

I’m less than 200 days away now! Eee! (Still, 197 to go, but…anyway.)

So…weekend recap.

Ended up seeing Louis CK FRONT ROW on Friday night (so effing funny), and stayed out too late. (Too late meaning 11:30pm. Grandma, party of one.)

Saturday, went out for breakfast with the hubs and then went to Lowe’s and picked up some potted flowers for our house/yard. Two hanging, one tabletop and one patio rose bush. Here’s hoping I don’t kill any of them. (Yeah, right.) Then just stayed home that night, watched The Day the Earth Stood Still (F -) and then, to bed.

Sunday, slept until 8:30am (no longer capable of sleeping in on the weekends. Boo). Then went to see a friend perform in Seussical the Musical, then home, nap time, dinner, tv, bed.

Exciting, no?

Tomorrow, I’m officially 12 weeks! Yahoo!

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.
