So at night, when I’m just about to fall asleep or think I am, I get these great ideas for post and then I wake up and have nothing. What is that all about? If all my best ideas come late at night, I’m in some serious trouble!
I mentioned before that I thought having a preggo belly would mean instant camaraderie with other moms-to-be and that didn’t happen. Patty reminded me that as women, we are mostly catty, especially when it comes to things like weight. So instead of getting the look of knowing kindness, I was getting the ole stink eye as bellies were compared! Which is funny, because while I did compare bellies it was never with the stink eye, this is not to say I can’t be catty, because meow, I sure can, but I guess I just expected it to be different? It must be the false sense of everyone and their mother’s being happy because you are pregnant…even if they don’t know you, but it seems this is mostly online and not out in the real world. Strange, isn’t it? (Family doesn’t count…they are always happy!!)
I turn 17 weeks today and am anxiously waiting to feel baby move. There are times I think maybe I felt something, but it happens so quickly that I can’t be sure. Hubby and I have spent time poking and prodding only to not feel a thing and probably annoying baby at the same time. Poor thing...but this is probably the easiest poking and prodding he/she will receive.
I started doing a baby registry and have to admit, I was more excited about my wedding registry than this one. I mean how hard could it be picking out things for a baby? Yeah, well it’s actually a lot harder than I thought because you have to research. Thanks to recalls and crappy workmanship of certain items you have to be sure you get something that isn’t dripping in toxic paint or going to break apart as soon as you take it out of its packaging. This research is not fun and I’ve seriously thought about paying someone to do the research, brining me the results and then I can have fun adding the items to the registry. This shouldn’t be stressing me out, right? And yet every time I pull up the list I can’t help but feel my eyes glaze over and my mind go blank.
