Can't Sleep

I have been up since 2am. I watched Aladdin and attempted some homework. Then I watched American Pie 2. Usually watching movies in the dark puts me to sleep super fast, I am lucky if I get out of the credits. But not today.

I went to bed super early last night because I was bored. I can't sit around and watch TV all day. To be quite honast, I thought that if I went to bed the day would end faster and I could start today with a better, less bitter attitude. Not so much. I am pissed that I woke up at 2 and can't sleep. This is ridiculous. I can sleep like nobody's business during the day but apparently, I am now a night owl and I don't like it.

In other news, my BFF is engaged!! We have been waiting for sooooo long! They have been together for 7 years. I am pretty excited to plan a wedding that someone else is going to have to pay for and have something other than my growing belly to talk about. SO YAY for her!

12 weeks!

Woohoo! Hello second trimester! Goodbye sleepy and hello energy!

Here's a pic of me at twelve weeks. I am bloated and icky but I know some of it is the kid since most of my clothes don't quite button. I have never been THAT bloated. Been wearing the belly band almost everday.

We went shopping last weekend to spend our gift cards and we only bought a couple baby things but they are so cute! We got some onsies and a blanket and some super soft and fuzzy socks! Lucky kid!

And finally-

How far along? 12 weeks yesterday.
Maternity clothes? Nope, still in the normal clothes but with belly band everyday.
Stretch marks? Nope. And I am really, REALLY trying to get it to stay this way. Obscene amounts of cocoa butter lotion are being rubbed on at least twice a say. I am prone to those little stetchies and I fear what I will look like when this is over.
Sleep: Yes. Naps are fabulous.
Food cravings: Ice cream!
Gender: 11/3 we find out!
Labor Signs: That would be scary.
Belly Button in or out? Still in, I don't think it will ever pop out. I have the most giant hole for a belly button ever.
What I miss: drinking wine with dinner, still. Running.
What I am looking forward to: Going to Meryl's house and seeing her new little one! He's only three weeks old.
Weekly Wisdom: Still nothing.

200 More Days...

...Of no wine.
...of gaining weight.
...of hoping for no stretchmarks.
...of worrying about if the baby stuff is the best/safest that our money can buy.
...of wondering if the kid will have red hair or not.
200 More Days.
We scheduled our maternity shoot with this lady out of Napa. I am not in love with her pictures but she is cheap and the only family photographer in the area that I at least sort of like. The research continues, if I find someone I like better than I will book with them. But for now we are tentatively booked with Christine Tomlinson out of Napa for February 27th at the beach. Yes, our maternity pictures are going to be at the beach! Loves it! I am pretty excited about that. And she isn't charging us travel charges because she really wants to do a maternity session out at the beach. So score for us.
I bought Organic Chocolate Milk from the store yesterday and OMG, so much better than regular Chocolate Milk. So yummy. The whole 1/2 gallon is almost gone.

Doc Appt. Numero Dos

I went to the doc yesterday. And the nurse told us it was going to be all physical, a pap and breast exam. But the doctor came in and said that I didn't need a pap since I just had one in March! Woohoo. Then she said we had some extra time, so she ran to get her doppler and we listened to the heart beat. It is a very strong washing machine at 165bpm. So we're healthy and things are looking good.

I had more bloodwork. This time I had bloodwork with a student from Empire College. It was fine, she found the vein on the first try but today I am all bruised. Ugh. WTF man. Oh well. I think I only have two more blood tests and then I will be done.

I do feel bad that Timm missed the heartbeat. We thought the appt was going to be all physical and we scheduled it for earlier in the day, a time that we knew Timm wouldn't be able to make it. And then we got to hear the heartbeat. I am sad he wasn't there. But he did say, that no matter what the nurse or doc says about the next appt, he won't be missing any of them. Awww, what a good daddy.

Who needs hair?



I am donating 7 inches of my hair in just one month. Sonoma County Hair Harvest is doing a hair raiser for breast cancer. Of course they take monetary donations as well, but as we all know, I have none of that so hair it is!

I am nervous and must begin looking for hair styles that might be cute on me with 7 less inches of hair. Eeeek.

The website with all the info is here!

11 weeks today.

How far along? 11 weeks today.
Maternity clothes? Nope, still in the normal clothes. They are fitting a little bit tighter now, which is weird since I have lost 5 pounds.
Stretch marks? Nope. And I am really, REALLY trying to get it to stay this way. Obscene amounts of cocoa butter lotion are being rubbed on at least twice a say. I am prone to those little stetchies and I fear what I will look like when this is over.
Sleep: Yes please. I sleep all the time, at any time. Except in the morning when Timm leaves for work.
Food cravings: Not so much.
Gender: Not sure yet.
Labor Signs: Nope. Thank goodness.
Belly Button in or out? Still in, obviously.
What I miss: drinking wine with dinner, or at least having the option to drink wine at dinner.
What I am looking forward to: Well, not much actually. Have a doc appt tomorrow but it is all physical. So that isn't exciting at all.
Weekly Wisdom: I have nothing.

How big is the kid you ask? Well about the size of a lime. Limes happen to be one of my favorite fruits, so that is very exciting for me.

The appetite is back for good now. So back to healthy eating and not just whatever sounds good.

We got our first baby present! My bestie gave the kid some orange and white stiped booties, mittens, and a little orange hat. Loves it!

Down...

4.5 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. And yet, I still feel fat, bloated, and yucky. Ew.

I am still not getting hungry all that often. I eat about ever 6 hours and just drink a shitton of water. The nurse chick said that was the most important anyway. I have my next appt on 9/10 and I will be meeting my actual doctor who will potentially be delivering our child. So hopefully, I will have more questions answered. If I should be concerned about my weightloss, even though I am sure it is fine.

I finally fulfilled my chinese food craving yesterday. Thank god for Silicia. I have eaten sweet and sour pork and pot stickers twice now since I found out. So interesting craving, and actually, quite an annoying craving to get considering my location. The nearest chinese food joint is 25 minutes away. Sad.
