What I'm Loving Now

Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. I seriously can't get enough.

Hummus and Sesame chips from Costco

Avon's Thick, Creamy lotion
Colgate's Optic White Toothpaste

Doughnut Holes

Sleep, specifically with lots of pillows

Pedicures... because at this point it's impossible for me to reach my toes.

Braxton Hicks. No, really. I honestly love them.

And just for kicks, here's the original John Braxton Hicks, who coined the term:


Tiny baby cloth diapers

So True

Sometimes I just need a reminder to look outside the behavior and situations and remember what it is I'm REALLY doing.

(Another) You Might Be Pregnant If...

*You need a minimum of 4 pillows to sleep with at night.

*Painting your toes turned out to be a major feat and you now have pulled muscles you didn't even know existed.

*You have a cold and can take... nothing. So you're a coughing, sneezing, running nose (yet stuffed up at the same time... HOW does that happen??), chapped lips mess.

*You've never been so thankful that the baby returned to a breech position and is no longer kicking the life out of your lungs and ribs.

*The new pale pink paint on the walls of your daughters' (Plural! You're gonna have TWO girls!!) room makes you giddy with excitement.

*Getting up to use the restroom in the middle of the night is a major accomplishment, what with the aforementioned pillows and a back that thinks it should act like that of  a 90 year old woman, who just got in a terrible car accident.  Right after back surgery.  And wasn't wearing a seat belt.

*Your skin is so dry it's soaking up lotion like the Sahara soaks up rain.

*You may have been caught pushing around an empty stroller, just for practice.

*Your re-sized, smaller wedding ring is getting too tight, and for the first time ever in pregnancy you may have to take it off. :,(

*You've never been so thankful that maternity fashion has come a LOOOONG way since you were pregnant with your first.

*You get sick from eating honey roasted peanuts.  And yet, can't stop eating them.

*You're actually looking forward to your 28 week Rhogam shot, because it's another milestone that brings you closer to the birth of your baby.

*YOU STILL CAN'T SETTLE ON A NAME. And it's driving you absolutely bonkers.
