Reality Check(s)

If you were to ask me 9 weeks ago what I thought it would feel like to be pregnant, I would probably say this,"Probably doesn't feel any different, just hungrier and fatter."  

Ask me that question NOW and here's my answer,"Definitely feels like poo."

Before I was preggo I never associated the crappy symptoms with the cute little belly that comes along.  I just automatically assumed that I would feel the same, just a little more hungry, maybe a little bit tired.  Never in my life did I imagine that my body would turn into some kind of creature that has a mind of it's own..and frankly, makes me feel like sh!t...24/7.  Point is..I hate being pregnant. 

So, until I get to feeling better I am guessing there's going to be a whollllle lotta complainin' going on round here.  So for everyone's sake (especially Adams) let's hope this little butterbean starts acting right, because at this rate it's gettin' a spankin' as soon as he/she is born!

Speaking of Adam, bless his little heart.  He has been SO good to me! I literally have been completely useless around this house.  I eat breakfast and leave it sitting on the counter.  I take a shower and leave my clothes on the floor.  But I can do that, because I'm knocked up and all.  I come home and he has it all cleaned up.  Love that kid.  What's even more impressive is how good he takes care of me while I'm hugging the toilet.  I know, I KNOW he hates puke.  But I also hate it, especially when I'm the one that doing the puking.  I still cry like a little baby when I do, too.  I have strict rules when it comes down to it.  The lights must be off, because I don't want to look at it, the sink water must be on because I don't want to hear it, and I must have one hand on the flusher with the other holding a wash cloth to my forehead. I mean, that's not asking too much is it? Didn't think so.  Ya'll probably don't want me to go into detail about all of my barfing adventures so I will spare you, but just know that Adam is a Saint for taking care of me right now!

Right now I am 8 weeks (give or take a few days) and due July 25th. It seems so far away but I know it will come sneaking up on us! We are very very excited and just know that even though I will probably complain for the next few months, I can't wait to be a Mom!
