Reasons I know I'm pregnant

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


  • Weird, crazy, strange dreams. Like, I don't even want to talk about them, they're that weird. I just want to put an all-encompassing "I'm sorry" out there to all my friends, family and acquaintances that have made appearances in my dreams and killed someone, been killed, cheated on their spouses or walked out on jobs. It's not my fault, I swear. I wake up feeling horrified and burdened... which is quickly replaced by my realization that I have to go to the bathroom. Again.

  • I have to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME. And I imagine it just gets worse as my baby starts weighing more than just a couple ounces. Ugh. I have been trying to avoid any liquid for up to two hours before I go to bed. It's bad.

  • I'm not really showing yet, but my stomach feels different. I can't explain it, it just does. It's firm, like I just did a thousand sit-ups, and I definitely did no such thing.

  • I started bawling on the phone last night with my husband, for no good reason. Once I got off the phone, I started laughing hysterically at myself. I'm pretty sure if you would have been in the car with me, you would have jumped out of the moving vehicle.

  • I was shredding some freshly boiled chicken on Sunday and nearly threw up. For those of you keeping track, I no longer eat boiled chicken.

  • I went to the store at 9am, though, for Triscuits and cheese. And came back with six boxes of various assortments of Triscuits, Special K Chips and mini rice cakes.

  • Nausea is pretty much GONE. Praise the Lord. Seriously.

  1. love it! i am totally with you on strange dreams - i had one last night where we were sending stella off to another planet on top of a flying saucer with her stuffed dinosaur, because we thought it was what she wanted, then at the last second she reached out crying and wanted back down - then i woke up feeling like a shitty mom, haha! <-see, so weird!
