My a nut shell

My days and weeks and hours for that matter are filled with moments that many people would not be proud of yet I am. With a 9 month pregnant body and baby I have learned to laugh at the little things....and cry at the little things. Ha ha ha I thought that you would enjoy how I make it through the day and my little triumphs that I overcome:)

1. After working 6.5 hours a day, do i come home and clean or make dinner? No I have taken to the habit of lying on the couch, of course changing positions ever 2 min to be comfortable, and watching my newly found favorite show "Say Yes to the Dress". I am a sue me.

2. Much to Clayton's protest I have gotten used to and rather like the feeling of no makeup. I can rub my eyes whenever I want to:) Sadly this must end with the birth of our child. I need to have pride in my personal appearance. ha.

3. This is one that I am most proud of..... if I can make it through the day without laughing, coughing, sneezing and not peeing my pants at the same time that is a victory.

4. I tend to be rather emotional lately. I never thought I would get the pregnancy crazy gene well according to Clayton it is in full force. You can never really know what is going to come out, for me I find it rather exciting like a play. Clayton is not so excited.

5. I am quickly starting to grow out of my maternity clothes. HA HA HA Pretty soon I am not going to have anything to wear. Baby you better come soon.

6. In regards to #5 I have become prone to wearing the same thing every day when I get home from work. A nice pair of bright pink sweat pants with a dinosaur on them. Clayton hates them, I think he is embarrassed to be seen with me in public when I refuse to change for a Walmart run. What is wrong with my lovely pink sweats and a now skin tight white BYU hoodie? I think I just answered my own question.

7. I am always hungry. I think I have eaten us out of house and home. Every week when I go to the Doctor I am certain she is going to turn to me and give me the "obese talk". I know it is coming one of these days, I see the look she gives me when I get on the scale. judgment. and I thought the Doctors office was a judge free zone.

8. I think I might be in denial. I have packed the baby's hospital bag, yet for some reason I can't pack my own. I am really starting to believe that the baby is just going to show up one day, brought to me by a stork of course, and it will all be over. Then of course there are the times when I think about going to have a sit in at the hospital and refuse to leave until I have a baby. I am guessing this has something to do with #4.

9. Sleep? What exactly is sleep because I have yet to see you in the past nine months. The sad part is, is that once I am comfortable enough to sleep--presently--it is time for my nine thousandth trip to the bathroom. It is a vicious cycle. sleep, potty, eat, sleep, potty, eat. I have become the adult form of my soon to be born baby.

10. With everyone of these numbers and "issues" I have developed with having a baby and being pregnant I have become increasingly more and more grateful for my incredible husband. He is my everything. He takes care of me and loves me even though I have bladder control issues ha ha ha. He is the rock of my life and honestly I would never, could never do this with out him. He is the most amazing man and is the most amazing father. I love you baby cakes.

So all of you baby wishers, 2 trimesterers, and everyone in between this is what you have to look forward to. Honestly I would not change a thing. He is mine and I get to carry him for nine months and for forever. Sometimes you just need a little reminder;)
