Fruit, fruit and more fruit!

This morning I've had 2 pears, 1 orange and a bowl of strawberries... and it's only 10:30am. I can NOT get enough fruit, it's never tasted so delicious! Yummmm :)

Being pregnant is weird

Currently, I can feel my heartbeat in my butt. Also, I can't figure out if I'm hungry or full.



11 Weeks

Today I am 11 weeks pregnant and the baby is about the size of a lime. A lime! That seems so big to me! I can't believe how quickly he/she is growing! I wish I could just hold my sweet little lime, just for one minute! I love my teeny baby!

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Plain & Simple

Bladder Control... what's that?

Last night I learned something new.

For the first time I experienced how dangerous a sneeze can be for a pregnant lady! From now on, If I feel one coming on, I'm bracing myself. All you mommies out there, you know what I'm talking about!

Oooh little baby, I surrender to you. You now have full control of EVERYTHING! But I still love you so much :)

I Hate Pants!

I can't stand anything that touches my waist or belly. As soon as I get home from work everyday, the pants come off. I would live in just my undies if I could.

Lady Gaga does it, why can't I?

Since I've been knocked up...

I don't like meat very much BUT for some reason a huge juicy steak sounds yummy.

I'm hardly ever thirsty BUT I know how important drinking plenty of water is, so I force myself.

I don't crave sweets at all BUT I think about pancakes all the time.

Oops, a burp just slipped out... and I have a conference room full of people about 2 feet away from me :/ It came out of nowhere.

Also, I've come to the conclusion that pregnancy feels like you have a huge fart trapped in your belly 24/7 that never comes out, but it's just pressure from everything expanding and your belly being so tight. It's such an odd feeling! Sometimes I wish it was gas, so I could let it loose and my belly could just relax... but nope.

Anywho, sorry if that was TMI for ya.

Love is by far the most powerful thing in this world. It is the most wonderful feeling we'll ever experience. I continue to be amazed by its power. How does it run so deep? I'm not sure, but I look forward to each time I fall deeper and deeper in love with my husband. I can't wait for the overwhelming moment we'll experience when we see our sweet baby for the first time. I am already so in love, I can't imagine how I'll feel when he or she is finally here.

Anyway, I just had to get that out, I'm feeling lovey dovey this morning :)

Just Ask

Last night, before I drifted off to sleep, I said my prayers. It's pretty much been a part of my bedtime routine since I was about 3 years old, when my mom would lay in bed with me and pray with me. She said I would go on and on for minutes saying "God bless Mommy, God bless Grandma, God bless the mailman, God bless the neighbors..." and that was the extent of my "prayers". Now, I just talk to God. It's just me and him, a time for me to express my hopes, dreams, worries and fears. Sometimes it takes me 2 minutes, other times 20 minutes. Sometimes, I am so tired, I fall asleep while praying and I don't even get to finish... I try not to do that! Well, last night I asked for something I haven't asked for or even thought of asking for in a really long time. Since being pregnant, I have gone thru so many changes physically. I have been so tired and so sick, most days it's a struggle just to get the normal things done, at work and at home. I feel like I have little to no motivation for anything. I understand that my body is going thru a lot of changes and I should be taking it easy. But the fact is, I still have a job that I need to work hard at, a home that needs to be cleaned, errands that need to be done. Just because I am pregnant, I can't neglect every other aspect of my life. I realized I needed a little help. So last night I prayed for strength and motivation. Strength- to get thru the times when I'm not feeling well and motivation- to work hard and give it my all at the office and at home. Let me tell you, today has been a great day! I have felt pretty good all day and have been so motivated at work, I have gotten so much done! It feels so awesome!

Sometimes I forget that when I need a little help, all I have to do is ask. It's so simple :)

Now I have to get back to being productive!
