Road to Mommyhood

I'm pregnant with my first child, and I'm super excited about it. I want to blog about my ideas, thoughts, random questions, and also keeping up with cute fashions with an ever expanding waist line.
I love Yankee Candles fall and winter scents. This is my 3rd candle since Sept.

Has anyone used a co-sleeper? I’m really thinking about buying one for the first few months until we can transition him to his crib. I think it might be easier on me for breastfeeding. Also, I just like the idea that he’ll be so close at night. 
Anyone tried it? Thoughts? Opinions?

Heartburn/Indegestion

…is rampant these days. I feel like EVERYTHING gives me indegestion or heartburn. Pizza = EVIL, Decaf coffee= Satan!, Chinese Food = FML.

Your Fashion Has Limits When You’re Pregnant?

I think one of the most unfashionable times in my life has to be a tie between 4th grade when I had this terrible, unfortunate permed mullet and now with pregnancy. Granted in the 4th grade I didn’t know that LA Gears, Umbro shorts & NKOTB tshirts were not going to be cool 1 year down the road, but I feel like I have no options when it comes to maternity clothing. Well, I would if I was extremely well off and had the $$ to drop on designer duds, but I’m not, and I wouldn’t even if I could. I am rather picky about what I wear actually. Also not good for a pregnant Mom to be. I should just be happy to wear what everyone else is wearing from Old Navy, Gap, Motherhood, Target & A Pea In The Pod, but I’m not, and aside from a few “awww, fuck it’s”, I won’t. I have purchased some maxi dresses from Forever21, and I do love me some TopShop & Dorothy Perkins Maternity, my ever expanding waste line makes the dresses I loved 4 weeks ago all of a sudden seem too small. I like the vintage outfits, and I guess women before 1980 just didn’t wear anything at all. I cannot imagine what the hell they wore actually because I haven’t seen one photo or even been able to find a used maternity dress on Ebay from that era. I mean, I have seen the smocks, but was that it? 

I would like to know if any of you have found some super cute places to shop. I’m in my 3rd trimester now, and I am about ready to start my maternity leave from work. I just really am not going to invest anymore $$ into work attire, nor do I want to spend a lot more $$ on maternity anything. 

Anonymous asked: i think your the rude one. u may have said "rude" stuff to a pregnant women and now u may not because you're pregnant. u were on the opposite side of not being pregnant too before,

Sure, I’ll be rude here. Learn grammar and punctuation before you try to anonymously insult someone.  

How to Piss off a pregnant woman

Walmart Cashier Lady: “oh, how much longer?”

Me: “um…about 11 weeks.”

WCL: “Wow. Is it twins?”

Me: “No, but have you been told that you’re very rude?”

Scenario 2

My Dad: “Someone asked about you the other day”

Me: “Oh?”

My Dad: “yeah, I told them that you were married, fat & pregnant now”

Me: “WTF is wrong with you!?!”

Maybe I’m just a little sensitive these days, but in both those instances my feelings were really hurt. 1. It’s rude to assume that a woman is having twins just cause she’s pregnant and looks big to YOU. 2nd, I’m not fucking fat. When I found out I was pregnant I weighed 122 lbs; I’m 5’5”. 28 weeks later I’m just at 145lbs. So, fuck you Dad for telling someone I’m “fat and pregnant”. 

People can be so goddamn insensitive. 

Happy Mother’s Day

….to all the wonderful lovely Mother’s out there. I hope you have a fantastic day!
