…jinxed…my appetite has skyrocketed. I’m hungry and thirsty ALL the time. I had to leave work to go get a bacon egg and cheese biscuit, hashbrowns, cinnamon rolls, and orange juice because I was starving. This was all after my routine bowl of strawberry oatmeal that usually holds me over until morning snack time. Along with some unmentionable joys of pregnancy 🙂
Crazy Cravings: Hamburgers. Lemonade. Pickles. FINALLY back to my beloved pickles! Has anyone else literally salivated when standing in front of the pickle section? I went to the store Tuesday night and set all the food out on the counter before putting away. Nate got home and looked at it all and said “Oh wow. Did a pregnant girl go shopping?” 3 jars of pickles, salsa, hot sauce, apple juice, chips, honey. Definitely ate a whole jar of Claussen’s sandwich slices…sorry boo.
Highlights: We’ve decided on our names! But we are keeping them both a secret 🙂
Then Sunday night, I felt the kicks! So awesome, it felt like Christmas morning. Right now the kicks are cute, but they will probably become not so cute once the baby gets bigger and stronger. I’m glad to know the baby is growing strong and doing alright in there!
The anatomy scan on Wednesday. It is always great to see an ultrasound of the little one. It was moving around, waving it’s arm, and rolling around (I knew I was feeling that!). But when you have an extremely full bladder that the nurse and receptionist refuse to let you empty, and someone is mashing on it for 30 minutes…what kind of mood would you be in? To make matters worse, when I could finally use the restroom, the nurse insisted on pointing out ALL the features of EVERY ultrasound picture print out. I was really trying to care, but I didn’t, I was about to pee on their floor. While listening to “see this foot print, that is a foot. See those 2 dots, those are the eyes and the head around it.” I hear someone go into the one bathroom for some weird test that was going to take a while. I about cried. And about slapped the nurse and receptionist. I think they stuttered a bit when they asked me if I could make it to the next floor without wetting myself. Obviously I’m venting just a bit about Wednesday and I think Nate will remember more about me being pissed about my bladder than the anatomy scan haha!
Nate and I made burp cloths…can’t have too many!
