A New Addition

Ryan and I purchased a white shag body pillow from Sams last week. It was supposed to help me sleep better at night. Unfortunetly, it was a little too fluffy for my liking. Ryan slept with it and the next morning declared, "It's like sleeping with a polar bear!"

I guess that's a good thing when you are so cold at night you have to wear a hoodie and 2 blankets.

Polar Bear (aka the pillow) is nice to have when I sit on the couch. I just wrap it around me and it adds padding and comfort. I don't think Lily likes our new addition to the family. I woke up one night to her shredding the shag with her teeth. Hopefully she gets it out of her system before the baby comes.

Other news: I have come down with the flu. Body aches, fever, chills, nausea, sore throat....it is awesome. Sometimes I have problems differentiating what is the flu and what is from the pregnancy. And actually, one good think about having the flu is that when I have the chills, I'm not freezing my poor husband out of house and home. I think he kinda likes it. The funny thing is, I was supposed to get the flu shot at work this week. That is what I get for procrastinating!

There's a Baby in There

Tonight at work I walked into a patient room and sat down on the stool. There was a 3 year old boy in there. When he saw me, his eyes widened and he leaned closer to his mom.

"Mommy!" he said in his exaggerated child whisper. "That lady's got a BIG belly"

His mom looked slightly embarrassed. I could hear her whisper back, "That's because there's a baby in there."


It was pretty funny.

7 Months
And yes there is a baby in there.

You Know You're Pregnant When...

You know you're pregnant when...

--You make your husband go to the nearest gas station in the middle of the night to buy Tums.

--You sleep in till one and still need a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day.

--You try to squeeze behind big spaces and realize you don't fit or you get stuck.

--You think your ribs will never feel the same again.

--You drop 3 cups in 24 hours. One shattering into many pieces on the floor.

--You wake up in the middle of the night with an excruciating leg cramp, only to be woken up an hour later with another leg cramp...in your other leg.

--Your husband says your gait resembles a duck.

--You sleep with 4+ pillows at night.

--When people say you're huge or you're getting bigger, it is actually a good thing.

--You have what you call "optimum sleep temperature" which involves turning down the air several degrees, cranking the fan, and freezing out your husband.

I may or may not have had personal experience with all of these things.
