The weather has turned from a lovely 70 degrees to 90 degrees within seemingly a week, like it always does. I have also grown a bump in seemingly as short a time.
I feel like my belly started growing overnight; it definitely seems much bigger to me than in the past couple weeks.
I am happy in at least some ways about the belly getting bigger, although growing a big tummy is still odd. I went to the ladies’ room the other day on a break from group training, and there were three ladies walking ahead of me.
Of course when we got to the ladies’ room, there were only three stalls and they took them all. So pregnant me waited impatiently for one of these stalls to open while I had to pee so bad. Soon I think I will show enough for people to realize I’m pregnant and let me pee! Baby is hanging out doing the Riverdance on my bladder.
My week and a half off work was short-lived, but I guess it’s nice to get paid and stuff. I have financial goals – paying off the couple smallish loans I have is my dream, but if I can at least get close that would be a good thing.
Baby is the size of a chinchilla or an ear of corn.
Baby loves maple bacon tempeh.
I eat this stuff like crack. Today, I made a sandwich with tempeh bacon, colby jack cheese (Trader Joe’s cheese is the bomb), and French bread.
Baby also loves chickpea salad sandwiches, avocado, and cantaloupe. I also enjoying eating olives straight out of the can or on sandwiches.
I found this great dress at Target during their Memorial Day sale for a good deal.
It’s not a maternity dress, but I bought it one size up and feel like it will do its job. I am happy with it; it’s extremely soft and stretchy and easy to throw on while looking fairly put-together.
I spent the weekend in Virginia with my awesome mom and aunt, who sent more baby clothes and diapers home with me. I wish my mom was closer, but I love time we get to spend together. She’s the most wonderful and she’s exactly as weird as me and vice versa.
Random act of kitchen destruction:
I accidentally left our oven mitt on the oven burner, which is electric, and burnt it. Then I put it in the washer and dryer, so now it looks like this. Oops. Luckily, we have more oven mitts.
