Baby bump or candy bump?

I missed out on taking a 12 week belly pic so I took one this week and I'll take one again on Sunday for 16 weeks. I have a pic at 15 weeks exactly but I'm in a thong and I don't feel like posting that over the net. :) I have been indulging in a lot of candy (it's supposed to be for trick or treaters but we couldn't resist the candy isle) lately so I am assuming that has to do with my belly growing suddenly.

I spoke too soon

Well, it seems for the past couple of days I have been getting very queasy. I really hope I'm not getting morning sickness now! I can't figure it out, maybe it's just from my sinus crap going on. Or maybe it's all in my head. I had a horrible migraine 2 days ago and I thought I was going to die for about 5 hours. My friend Amanda came to the house and gave me some anti-nausea medicine. Then I remember Courtney called me and asked if I needed some Zofran...luckily I already had some. Thank you for checking on me!! I barely remember our short conversation, I know I wasn't much fun to talk to.

Other than feeling a little blah, I went to Ross to look for some stuff for Eric and I lucked out in the maternity section. I didn't even know they had one there. I found a lot of cute shirts and a few pairs of pants. They were very affordable; I hope they don't fall apart after 1 wash. I guess this is a good time in fashion to be pregnant b/c all the maternity shirts I got look like everything else in the "regular" sections. The shirts are loose and a little bunchy (is that a word?) with a band at the waist. I suffer from horrible buyers remorse so as soon as I walked out with my bags I already wanted to turn around and return most of it. After I thought for a moment I realized that even if I get too fat too quick to wear these clothes, I will be able to wear them after baby is born this spring. I felt much better.

I need to get off my butt and go buy the steam cleaner I want, but I feel so unmotivated right now. I really need a carpet steam cleaner b/c the dogs have done quite a number on the carpet. Mainly numbers 1 and 2. HA!!! I also really want one of those Shark Mops....have you seen these? It works with steam and the pads are washable. That way your floors are clean, you don't have to buy cleaner and they aren't sticky at all. I can't decide if I want one or the other...and I really want both but I don't want to spend like $350 on cleaning stuff. Oh wait, I'll just go pick some money off my money tree and pull the rest out of my ass. Right.

If I end up with any of the above listed items, I will let you know how they work out.

Hello Sweatpants!

This isn't really a surprise to the few people that probably read my blog. (ahem...Courtney and Amy) But...for those of you that casually check in on my life should be happy that I finally have interesting stuff to talk about. I'm pregnant. 14 weeks at the moment. Apparently something was in the air in June b/c 2 other friends of mine (over-achiever twin-making Courtney and _____ (not sure if I can say) all got pregnant within 2-3 weeks. February-March should be very busy next year! This was not a planned pregnancy so apparently it was just supposed to happen. I had a feeling for some odd reason and I took a test when it only showed a speck of positive. No joke, a speck. No faint line, just a dot. That's a great way to spend the next couple of days...wondering if it's just a weird dot or a positive test. I waited a day or two and then I got a very faint line. I still took a couple more tests out of disbelief. It was weird that I knew it was coming, I had been having dreams about babies. Twins actually. Courtney told me she was pregnant and I told her about my twin dream and I said I knew someone was having them. I thought it was maybe going to be me but I was wrong. Well, half-wrong.

My due date right now is March 22nd. I had a sonogram at 9 weeks and got to see the peanut (I'll try to scan the pic sometime soon). The first thing I asked the technician was "please look around and make sure there is just one." After Courtney's little surprise I got nervous b/c it CAN happen. Not that I think having twins is anything shy of a miracle, but I don't think it's fair to have your first pregnancy bring on DOUBLE EVERYTHING. Don't I get to use the first kid as a tester? Heh. I will have another sonogram between 16-20 weeks to determine my final due date. If it behaves, maybe we will find out what it will be earlier than 20 weeks. Then I can stop referring to it as an "it."

I hope I'm in the clear for saying this, but I didn't really have bad morning sickness. I felt sick ALL the time but I never actually prayed to the porcelain gods. Thank the Lord. One night I felt so horrible that I had a cold washcloth on my face and I laid on the couch for hours just trying not to puke. I got up to get some water and I let out the biggest burp ever. Of course no one was home for me to brag to. I felt much better after that. It was the most satisfying burp ever. Okay, gross. Oh, and I've had what I'm hoping is a sinus infection for the past 2 months. I hope it's that and not pregnancy rhinitis that can last for up to 6 weeks after giving birth. Excuse me? That can't be right. I have to squeeze this baby out from WHERE and on top of that I could possibly turn into this mouth-breathing hormone-racing psychotic fat woman for the next 3 seasons?! I don't think so! I can't breathe; can't take any good drugs. Tylenol is a joke...I think the bottle I bought is the one where the factory worker fell asleep and forgot to put in the shit that makes it work. Does absolutely nothing for me unless I have a very mild headache...which is very rare. Migraines have returned to my life again, but so far they havent been TOO bad. I don't sleep either...which really blows b/c I can't fall asleep breathing through my mouth. I know I will not ever sleep through the night again for the next ump-teen years so why the hell wouldn't I be allowed to sleep more than 3 hours at a time now?!?! (okay yeah, so maybe I have symptoms of bitch too)

Other than that, I'm doing pretty good. I'm starting to get excited about the future and all the tiny clothes I get to buy. I can't wear my jeans comfortably anymore. It is a sad day when you can't put on that great pair of "damn these make my ass look good jeans." I really need more stretchy clothes. I don't have the cute baby bump yet either, I just look fat. You know, like the chick who wears that t-shirt that is just a little too tight to show off her belly. A belly that looks to be the result of years of drinking way too much beer and midnight munchies. Sexy. So, until I actually feel like it's time to buy maternity clothes I will be modeling many styles of yoga and sweat pants.

Stay tuned...
