7 weeks today! more than halfway through my first trimester!!!!

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

sorry i have become somewhat negligent on my blogging. my life iliterally CONSUMED with being pregnant. which, up to this point, isn't much fun. i'm the most exhausted i have ever been in my life. i don't ever want to eat for fear that i will get sick. i've been living off of mashed potatoes, dry toast, phenergan, zofran, vitamins, folic acid, and canada dry...with some milk thrown in here and there. but the way i see it, i have 5 1/2 weeks before my first trimester is which point i should be golden! so if any of you moms out there have any suggestions on just how to get through the next 5 1/2 weeks, i'll gladly accept them!

but seeing as this is my first pregnancy, i thought this quiz result was quite funny:

What type of Mommy are you?

Super Ma Ma

You have everything down pat. You can do anything, fix any situation. You most likely have more than one child, ages ranging from 0-5.
How do you compare?

so yesterday i had a haircutting fiasco. i went to get my haircut once i got to augusta. i've done this before. never had a problem. but yesterday, i went and the lady was HORRIBLE!! first of all, she didnt' say 2 words to me. the time it took from sitting down in her chair to getting up was a whopping 8 minutes. she used no products or anything. and when i say it was a bad cut, it was worse than bad! literally, i looked like a teenage skateboarder high shcool boy. it was awful. i got up and walked out without paying. i was so mad.

so i called my cousin who lives here in augusta and asked for some other place to go. she gave me a number. i called. they were completely booked. but they gave me the number to a spa/salon place. i call them. (knowing my entire wad of money is now going down the drain but i REFUSE to walk around the way i was.) they were able to fit me in.

i get there. the girl looks at me and says, "what did she do???" my thoughts exactly. since the first lady cut it even shorter than it already was, there wasn't much the hair-saver could do. but she did manage to make it look more feminine. (thank you so much!!!) so now i have incredibly short hair. even short for me. i don't really like the cut much. but it's at least better than what it was from the first stupid lady.

i'm counting on my prenatals (aka - flintstone gummies and folic acid) to do their thing and make my hair grow!!!

so today i got into an accident on the way home. someone rear-ended me getting onto north druid hills. she didn't mess up my car, but she hurt hers pretty badly. and since i was looking to the left to try to merge onto ndh rd, my neck whiplashed funny. now i have a headache and my neck hurts. i called my ob/gyn just to make sure everything was okay with the baby...she said it was. whew!!!

then, once that was over and robert and i were on our way home, we were listening to the dave ramsey show. i like it when people call in and they do their "WE'RE DEBT FREE" screams....but today was special! this one family called in having paid off about 46,000 in 10 months. their boys (8 & 9) were on the phone with them when they screamed. and can i just tell you that when they did, i started crying?!? which, in turn, made me laugh because here i am crying at the dave ramsey show.

yeah. i'm pregnant.

Baby Snelson - 5 weeks, 5 days old

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Saw this today and thought it was funny.....

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?

I don't know and I couldn't care less!

today has been - by far - the worst pregnant day to this point. i feel horrible. i am absolutely wasted. in the morning and afternoon, i can barely keep my eyes open. but between 5 -9, i have a TON of energy...then i drop again. and i feel like the world's biggest witch (i'd say other words but my husband will inevitably read this). i don't mean to feel this way but i can't help it! i just feel so mean! but not at any one person in particular. just in general. luckily, anakin has been clingy and wants to cuddle at the house a lot, so that helps. (and i realize that sounds sarcastic but it isn't. it's the absolute truth!) i get some loves in during the day! i had a pb&j sandwich for lunch at the park with anakin and almost threw it up. but it tasted fine. what the heck is that? it's just crazy.

i'm ready for thursday when i get to see our baby's heartbeat and find out exactly how far along i really am and when (better ballpark figures) to expect this little person. i am also ready to ask for anti-nausea meds. zofran, phenegren, etc. any will do. just something to keep me from being, feeling, acting sick. anything. and i don't care how much it costs, either!

i found this picture while looking around on the internet. how cool is this???

Top Ten Things you should never say to a pregnant woman:

1. "Hey there, big mama!"

2. "My God, you're enormous! Are you sure you're not having twins?"

3. "Well, looks like the boob fairy has visited you!"

4. "Should you be eating that?"

5. "You shouldn't be feeling so tired/cranky/insert-symptom-here. You're not that pregnant yet."

6. "So, are you still with the father?"

7. "How do you walk without falling forward?"

8. "Are you gonna get fixed after this one?"

9. "Enjoy sleep/time to yourself/insert-any-enjoyable-activity-here now, because you'll never get any once the baby comes!"

10. From any husband or SO (or anyone else for that matter): "Yeah, this pregnancy has been really hard on me, too." Please!

alright. so for those of you who know me, you know i'm not the "crafty" type. however, i have recently acquired a sewing machine from a very generous couple at the corps and i am now addicted to finding projects to sew! i made oscar a couple beds with erin, but now i'm "flying solo!" so far i have made a purse - which came our...okay - and then this afternoon i made a pair of pants. (well, with the help of jojo.)

anyway, i am in this whole new phase of looking up things to make and how to use scrap fabrics for different types of projects. (Netty- HELP!!!) it's a wierd, new world for me!!! but hey, new things can be fun, right?!

This is in honor of Leon Kirkpatrick. (a blast from the past)

"The Fruit of the Spirit's not a coconut,
the Fruit of the Spirit's not a coconut,
if you wanna be a coconut you might as well hear it,
you can't be a Fruit of the Spirit!

The Fruits are Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control."
