Pregnancy 101

So there are many things that one learns during pregnancy. What foods to avoid, the amount of caffeine allowed, symptoms of gas, etc, etc.
What do they leave out? Well let me tell you!
From a simple cough drop to vicks vapor rub - yup, there's the warning!
God forbid you actually catch a cold and need something to help!

As you might have guessed, yes I have said head cold and had to wallow in it for 1 1/2 days until I could call DR and find out what is okay to take. It was so insane it was funny, I kid you not, everything has a pregnancy warning. I could hardly believe it! I would've been laughing my ass off if it weren't for the hacking cough that would've ensued because I'd shaken loose the congestion in my head.

Anyway, that's my vent! Other than that, I'm enjoying being pregnant. For the most part, anyway. I don't think anyone enjoys gaining weight, only sleeping on their side at night or the gas that creeps up whether you eat one cookie or an entire 4 course dinner. (gurgle on gas bubble, gurgle on)

The Minister of Silly Walks

Hump Day Fun

and go to mewing.net. because law school made laura do this.

It's all about intimidation! Grrr!

I'm so loving Attorney Wrangler! The funniest stuff if posted whether it be some quiz (see above) or the job. I know about as much legalese as a bird knows about hockey, but it just gives me a good laugh.

It's A...

Baby H is a boy! J and I are very excited and are now working out names. If you were a fly on the wall you'd get a good laugh at some of the ones we've come up with. We've decided to not tell anyone else, though, when we do decide. They get to know the gender, they have to wait for a name. Plus, I don't want to hear comments about the name we choose. People can have NO TACT WHATSOEVER and be quite rude when it comes to stuff like that and frankly, I'd probably smack the person who makes a snarky comment.
So, in addition to finding real names for Baby H, we're also working on fake names to give everyone else. LOL! Being fans of Monty Python, we thought of Minister of Silly Walks and another one that's like 25 names all together. Don't ask me to write it because I can't remember a single one of them! This should be fun!

As for me, well, I'm still adjusting. I still don't look like I'm pregnant. Seriously, it looks like I've eaten a big dinner and that's about it. I keep seeing all of these other pregnant women w/the cute bellies and I long for that soooo much. It's like, if I'm going to be gaining weight and all then I want the belly to go with it. Of course, in a few months I'll be cursing myself because then I probably will have a huge belly! It's a catch 22.
The other reason for wanting a belly is so that I can wear maternity tops and not look foolish! Tis the season for holiday parties, etc and it's getting more difficult to find tops/sweaters to wear. If I go with just a size larger than I wore pre-pg then the bottom is too short and my quasi belly pokes out. If I go in maternity top, the bottom hangs down and looks like a clown suit!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I wanted to be pg for quite a while (in comparison to some, of course) and earlier this year thought it would never happen. I'm soooooo very grateful to be pg and have everything go smoothly so far. It's just an adjustment that has its bumps.
Clothing companies would make a killing in creating "transitional" clothing for pg ladies. Sure there's some stuff out there, but it's mainly pants/jeans. Find me a top/sweater that isn't full blown maternity and I'd go ape over that! Give me twenty!

sofa king

I love stumbling across new slang. The one I read today read:
"sofa king stupid" (courtesy of wwdn-see links)
I've been trying to figure out when/where I can use it. I don't know why I like it other than it makes me laugh a little.
