19 Weeks!


Well, I’m now a little over 19 weeks preggo now and I feel great.  Sure I’m tired all the time…but I can do stuff on the weekends other than lay on the couch all day whining to my husband about how sick I feel.  I consider this a huge improvement! Around 9pm I lose all energy and have to drag myself to bed, but until then I’m in pretty good shape.

Anyway, I realized I hadn’t taken or posted any belly pictures so I figured I’d do that today.  Sean and I went to Larriland Farms in Woodbine, MD Sunday to pick out pumpkins.  This place is awesome! There was a hay bale maze, hayrides, a beautiful lake, cute goats you can pet, and lots of tasty treats.  We sampled some sweet potato fries and a piece of pumpkin pie and sipped on fresh lemonade.  It was fantastic!  And it was really warm out too! Almost too warm…but a nice treat for so late in the fall! I couldn’t have asked for a better day! I can’t wait until we have a little one that we can bring here to pick apples and pumpkins in the fall and berries and peaches in the spring/summer!

19 weeks preggo...look at that belly!

yeah....we're dorks!

It's a ???

We went and had our “determine the sex of the baby” ultrasound yesterday….and received the ultrasound tech’s MOST DIFFICULT BABY OF THE DAY award.  Apparently the bebbe was laying in the most inconvenient position.  We were there for an hour and a half. 

We still need to go back in 2 weeks because they were not able to see the spine, 1 of the kidneys, and a bunch of other stuff.  They also were only able to get one good look at the parts that tell you if it’s a boy and a girl.  They gave us a 90% sure that it’s a ------ but until they have a few different angles they can’t be sure.  I figure 90% is pretty good odds that it’s a  ------, but I’m not going to announce it to the interwebs just yet.  We told our families what they said it is, but before I alert the masses, I figured we’d better be sure.  So, keep posted for the official announcement on November 4th!



Registry Panic

So...just for funsies I decided to start a registry on Babies R Us a few minutes ago.  You know...just kind of get it started to see what kinds of things we will need when the baby comes in March.  I know I wrote about this earlier in a silly post about all the insane stuff people buy that they don't need. But after looking at the registry site and all the stuff they suggest plus all the other stuff that is out there - I'll admit it.  I'm pretty terrified.  How the heck are you supposed to A. know what you need and B. know what to do with half of the crap once you get it?  Holy crap you guys, I'm having a bit of a panic attack right now.  How the heck are you supposed to know about this stuff?  I didn't grow up around kids, and the one little guy I watch on occasion (big ups to Wiz!) comes with a small bag of the essentials.  I never had to tend to sick babies, and I never had to pick out what type of diapers, bottles, strollers, car seats, etc that are the best. I know we have a while to go before the little one gets here - but how do you even get a clue between now and then to even fathom what to do with all this stuff?

It's times like this when I miss my mom the most.  I know it would have been a long time since she had kids, and it's just as easy to ask my sisters or a friend...but there is something different about asking mom, ya know?  Like I don't want to impose on my friends or family, I don't want to freak out to them about all the fears I have about not having a frickin' clue about what I'm doing.  I know my mom would have been able to calm me in these times.

I know I'm having a minor freak out and it will pass...all in all my emotions have been pretty level considering the hormones that are raging in my body...but I'm missing my mom and freaking out and am terrified that I won't know what to do.

I just miss my mommy.

Being Pregnant is sometimes terrifying

It's crazy how every little thing your body does freaks you out when your preggers. Any kind of change can send you into a whirlwind of fear that something crazy bad is happening. I have never been so conscious about what I eat, what I drink, my bodily functions, every pain and every noise that comes from my body. I take better care of myself than I ever did before - it's pretty crazy. Now that I am responsible for someone other than myself, I make sure to drink milk and eat veggies and get lots of sleep. I just want this little baby inside me to have the best chance at a healthy and good life...and if I can somehow spearhead that with being good to myself than so be it!

Mia's Morning Routine

Every morning my eh-hem...simple dog, Mia, must take this red blanket and push it into a ball.  It takes anywhere from 10 seconds to over a minute.  This happens every single morning.  Sometimes she finally settles on it, and others....she walks away from the ball and flops down at the foot of the bed.  It's a good thing she's cute because the poor girl is dumb as a box of rocks.

Behold....Mia in all her silly glory!

When Stink Bugs Attack!

I am not a fan of bugs...AT ALL! I try to avoid any place that has bugs or where bugs may be able to "get me."  One of the hubs favorite stories about me is when I got so scared of a cricket I jumped onto the couch and tooted VERY LOUDLY because I got so scared!  It took him 5 minutes to stop laughing hysterically in order to get rid of the creepy bug! (Not funny!....ok well kind of).

Anyway, this year there is an explosion of stink bugs in the area.  Apparently these little jerks have been around for about 10 years - but I had never seen one until I moved to our house in the burbs.  They are ugly, nasty and disgusting bugs.  I hate them! What makes it worse is that they are everywhere! They definitely like it in our house and take every opportunity to come in and join the party.  They are NOT invited!  I probably scream "BUG!" to Sean about 10 times a night - so that he can come to my rescue with a piece of TP.  It would be bad enough if this was the only issue.  But it's not...

Apparently these little effers have a vendetta against me for some reason.  It's like they know my biggest fear is having bugs on me while i'm sleeping because that is EXACTLY what has happened multiple times in the last 7 days!

The first time it happened, it was around 2am and I was sleeping peacefully.  I was laying on my side with my arm outside the blankets when I was awoken to a little tickle on my arm.  I went to scratch it and FELT SOMETHING! I brushed my arm, shot out of bed, turned on the light and yelled THERE WAS A BUG ON ME!! (just writing this sent shivers up my spine!)

worst fear realized!

Sean woke up and looked at me like I was nuts..but then saw the stink-jerk climbing on the bed.  He grabbed a tissue, got the bug, and rolled back over to go to sleep.  I just sat there staring at him like...wtf?  That's it?  No worries...I'll be snoring in 2 minutes?  Hmph.  I could barely sleep the rest of the night and kept imagining that every piece of hair that brushed across my face was bug.

The next day, I was taking a shower and was rinsing the bad night memories out of my hair when I look down on the ground of the shower stall and there is a effin stink bug wriggling around on it's back on the floor! WHERE DID IT COME FROM?  Was it in my hair? Oh god....NO! I swear, every time I see a bug in a place it shouldn't be that creepy scary music from Halloween plays in my head! So I jumped out of the shower with all the suds in my hair and used the shower sprayer to wash that bitch down the drain.  Ugh...I figured I should be good on the whole bug attacks for a while, right?  WRONG!

Since all of these bug assaults, Sean has been doing "bug check" in our room every night before I go to sleep. He'll look behind the curtains and generally any weird place a bug would hide.  We found 2 last night creeping before I went to sleep.  I figured we got them all and nestled down for the night.  So I'm laying there mere seconds from slumber when I hear this "ticka ticka" noise.  I decided to turn on the light just to check it out.  I'm probably being paranoid but...ya know.  So I turn on the light and look and what did I see?!?!

About to climb into my hair!!

a MOTHER EFFIN STINK BUG RIGHT NEXT TO MY PILLOW! So I jumped out of bed and screamed "BUGGGGG!!" for Sean to come upstairs and get it.  Needless to say I had another horrible nights sleep last night.  I seriously think I need to invest in a turban and ear plugs so that they don't crawl into my hair or ear and lay eggs!  And maybe a SARS mask too so they can't crawl into my mouth...and maybe some sort of plastic bubble to sleep in.

I have some major problems....
