5 things you should probably know - thing 1

Also known as "5 Things You Would Know By Now If I Ever Freaking Blogged." I'm breaking this into 5 posts because, well, then maybe you'll get 5 posts out of me this year. So let's get to it.

Thing 1: There's a bun in my oven. I'm due September 10. It's a BOY, which has me all sorts of freaked out. You've probably picked all this up from Facebook or something, but it's still worth mentioning here, right? What you may have not picked up from Facebook (because I haven't really shared them) are these fun facts about this pregnancy:

  • I'm craving sweet things (SPRINKLES CUPCAKES ALL DAY LONG PLEASE) and also cheeseburgers.
  • I've gained 17 pounds so far (25 weeks), which is perfectly normal as far as I know; however, I feel like I've gained about 40 pounds, which is neither normal nor enjoyable. I just want to have more than 2 outfits that I feel good in, okay?!
  • It took much longer to really start feeling movement from this baby than from either of the girls, but now the little guy has become quite a mover AND a shaker. And also a bladder kicker and/or puncher and/or head-butt-er.
  • Let's get real here -- I'm quite the grumpy prego lady this time around. I'm serious, sometimes I go out to run errands and end up feeling like THE ENTIRE WORLD hates my guts and wants to make my life as miserable as possible. And I just want to slap em all. And then I realize that maybe the problem is me, not them, and I start to feel guilty and I buy myself a Milky Way Midnight for some reason.
Here's what I look like right about now:

Feel all caught up on my pregnant state? You're welcome.


  1. Yay! I was so happy to see that you had blogged! I think it is about time Sprinkles expanded so we can have one a little closer. Love that cute belly bump!

    1. A closer Sprinkles = my heart's utmost desire. It wouldn't hurt if they were a little cheaper too...you know, as long as we're dreaming. :)

  2. I agree--yay for a blog! I've never had a Sprinkles cupcake and I'm thinking now is not the time to start. :) I did have a burger the other day though and felt so nasty afterwards. I felt kicks earlier this time around too. It's like we're opposites. Except I too hate the world. But only when I have to do errands. At Walmart. And swim lessons. Kill me now!

    1. I'm officially buying you a cupcake the next time I go (which, let's face it, will probably be rather soon). Want to come use our pool again this year to get some swim practice in? You're more than welcome -- anytime!

  3. Love this! Can't wait to see this boy!


Your turn.
