pregnancy update: young, pregnant, & FABULOUS!

so i realize it hasn't been a long time since my last update but it's my halfway point so i just couldn't resist myself. plus, no one has been blogging lately as often as they should so somebody has to start the trend. seriously people, i live in no-man's land- i need something to do during the day. [here's two pics to give you a frame of reference- bc honestly i'm not that big yet- the left is 18 weeks and right is 20. and ignore the weird boobage- my cup has begun to overflow with pregnant lady boobs]

current weekage: 
20 weeks [5 months!] and halfway through my pregnancy!

poundage gained:
well, it's my second update and i've already decided that i don't want to disclose this. at my last appointment, i gained a significant amount [not a double digit number but still more then i'd like]. i freaked out about this but my dr. said since i gained so little in my previous appointments, this was normal. easy for that skinny cow to say....

things i've cried over lately:
-justin & i were talking about marie osmond's newest marriage [in the vegas temple- what! what!] and he made some remark about his next marriage. well...that tipped me off. i couldn't stop. granted, justin hitting my head with a pillow didn't help either [he's of the school of thought that hitting me helps stops tear- much like hitting an alarm clock makes it stop. spoiler alert- it doesn't]
-kenny roger's song while in the walmart parking lot

food i'm stuffing my face with this week:
-laffy taffys [why oh why did they stop making seeds in the watermelon variety?!]
-route 44 strawberry limeades
[since satisfying my olive garden & krispie kremes cravings in vegas, my hunger has significantly subsided. not that i wouldn't mind more olive garden salad and some more donuts]

i was pushing out my stomach. which i tend to
do all the time now so people think i'm
pregnant and not just chubby.
highlight of this week:
wearing my first maternity outfit was pretty fun and extremely comfortable. when i was in vegas, justin abandoned me to go fishing so i took advantage of this fact and went shopping! i don't have any friends that have kids or sisters [only one and that was AGES ago] so i had no clothes to borrow. thankfully he was so tired from his trip he never asked how much i spent....and i'm not about to reveal it here in case he reads it. but let's just say, for a household with no income whatsoever, it was a lot.

last time i saw my feet:
haha! got ya! the 4th grade. i've always been a busty gal. i am looking forward to having something new to look at when i look down.

this is the culprit - see, not that skinny but def not "i'm so
big the people at walmart think i'm smuggling hoho's
and a ham under my shirt [which i am, coincidentally]".
plus it's a side profile so everyone looks better.
skinny girls i hate as of lately:
a girl from high school college jr. high church [i can't give away too many hints in case someone knows her] who was stick-skinny to begin with and now at 28ish weeks, looks like she swallowed an apple- no joke. rachel green- her pregnancy lasted a season but it felt like 5 episodes. and she was back to her skinny self immediately post-emma. and melissa from a year ago- i was looking through old pictures and thought to myself "man i miss being skinny" but let me tell you, this mama bear has never really been skinny. just skinni-er so life is just relative.

names i'd rather poke my eyeballs out then name our baby:
-justin junior, or j.j. [one my college nemesis' - we worked together and he was obsessed with me....caitlin & i pretended thought. he hid in abandoned offices to avoid work and went into the one elevator to stink it up. he had an imaginary friend named harold the hippo who lived in the anex under the stairs. and we strongly believe he attempted a rape- he didn't come to work the next day then when he did come, he had a black eye. veryyyy suspicious....]
-ja'markus [i don't care how much justin wants a tall black baby boy to play on unlv's basketball team- it's just not going to happen!]
-liam [i just feel like it's too popular]

book i'm currently reading: [not that it has any bearing on my pregnancy but fun info]
i just finished alot of new ones and awaiting the sequel to another so i'm rereading twilights. but i just finished before bossypants by tina fey- high. lar. ious. here's some quotes
"Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall BUTT [edited]...the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll BOOBS [edited]. The person closest to achieving this is Kim Kardashian, who was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling."
"Politics and prostitution have to be the only jobs where inexperience is considered a virtue. In what other profession would you brag about not knowing stuff? “I’m not one of those fancy Harvard heart surgeons. I’m just an unlicensed plumber with a dream and I’d like to cut your chest open.” The crowd cheers."
she did mention her birth story and how she didn't poop on the delivery table. apparently this is pretty common- which is beyond disgusting.

the prettiest little boy ever right?
how my life resembles a tv show this week:
finding out baby olive was a boy was quite the shock for me. i was convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt that he was a girl. but that still hasn't stopped me from admiring all the little girl clothes- mostly because there are no cute baby boy clothes. but i couldn't help myself at walmart yesterday- this shirt embodies me in four different ways. i did once dress up my little nephew in a blue dress so i have prior offenses when it comes to baby cross dressing. justin warned me never to do that to olive, but like shannon says, what happens when justin isn't around doesn't count....
[quote from season 3 of the office - the convict episode]

Pam Beesly:Aww, she's absolutely adorable.
Pam Beesly:Oh sorry. He's- he's dressed all in pink.
Hannah:That's his favorite color.
Pam Beesly:Oh. That's... fun for him.

isn't this adorable? i'm either holding it for when i have a girl or for caitlin's baby girl- so act surprised.

decisions made this week:
justin & i are both quite opinionated so i thought deciding the baby room colors would be a hassle but alas, a mother's day miracle! we both like green and grey. and this is how we want the baby's room decorated. i really hate sailboats and animals and sport themes [why is boy's decorations so ugly?]. i found these on etsy.

oh, and this is for your viewing pleasure.
Pin It!
