Exponential Growth

Do you see that belly, right there? That is a 34 week pregnant belly in size, at only 30 weeks of pregnancy. I weigh less than I weighed with Brigid, and yet...34 week belly. This is impressive, no?

And did I mention the part where I am going to be a bridesmaid in the wedding of one of my lovely former roommates from college on November 3rd? I'm going to see her this weekend for her bridal shower, and I am FULLY expecting her to take one look at me and say, 'Nope. I take it back. You're out.' Not that she would, or anything, but...holy aesthetic destroyer, batman. I am going to request that I stand behind EVERYONE during that photo session...

Another Week

Last week was a week, and I didn't get around to posting anything at all because I was too busy dealing with doctors and croup and 'roid rage in a two-year old, but I'm determined to make up for it this week.


And just to start things off right today, I went into Hobby Lobby with a list of two things that I needed, and left $70 lighter. Today? I'm counting that as a win.

Happy Monday!

That's better...

Today, my friendly 'your hips are getting bigger' co-worker told me she liked my style.

She also told me she doesn't remember me getting this big, this fast with Brigid, but I'll take what I can get.

Still Trying

It is so very much easier to dress a pregnancy in the early stages than it is once you start measuring four weeks ahead of schedule, but unfortunately, sweatpants are STILL not considered office appropriate attire, despite my best lobbying attempts. So, dress I do. I usually try to add a scarf or a belt to liven things up a bit, but after being up all night with indigestion last night, I just didn't have it in me.

I just hope the bright colors distract people from the size of what's under those colors...

(Side note: Those of you willing to come help me out if I paid in tacos and taffy? You are sooooooo my kind of people!)

Eat ALL the Things

I am hereby placing a personal ad for someone to come, stand over my shoulder, and smack me in the back of the head every time I go to take a bite of something. Because the over-eating on my end is getting kind of ridiculous. I am not even really hungry, and yet, if there is food in front of me, I will eat it. What is that about?

I mean, yes. I am more hungry than normal. That is to be expected at 6+ months of pregnancy, and honestly, eating more because I am more hungry doesn't bother me in the least. What does bother me is that I can't stop, even when I've eaten to the point of being uncomfortably full. Because I know I should have stopped, and I want to have stopped, and still...I haven't actually stopped. I DO NOT LIKE THIS, AT ALL.

So. I'm hiring an assistant. Who wants in on this for the next three months or so? Atlanta is beautiful in the fall, I promise. Plus, I myself am funny, and a good driver, and my office has comfortable chairs, and I will pay you in uneaten Air Heads or Laffy Taffy or cookies or tacos or Chex Mix or whatever else you can stop me from eating.

And who could refuse an offer like that?

Vacation Shopping

Well, it was a lighter than normal haul for me this year, seeing as how NOTHING IN THE WORLD WILL EVER FIT ME AGAIN (sorry...pregnancy dramatics tend to be my new normal these days), but I still managed to snag a few things for myself while we were on vacation last week. The best part about our end-of-summer vacation is that all of the little shops around town are having their end-of-summer sales, so I was able to add to my already-too-large flip-flop and bracelet collections at 50% off.

(Notice that I focused on the two and jewelry...that fit no matter how much weight you gain? Well, shoes, jewelry, and household knick-knacks, I guess. But you don't really want to see pictures of the new lantern or creepy ceramic skull I bought for the house, do you?)

(Well, even if you do, it's too bad, because I didn't take pictures of those. Maybe tomorrow...)
