my day...or at least a close approximation of it so far

6:45 am My alarm goes off.

6:46 am The cat goes off because he wants his breakfast RIGHT NOW!

6:47-6:59 am Attempt to decide what to wear to work although it is an exercise in futility due to the fact that I am over 4 months preggers now and have about 6 things that I can wear to work. Come next week, my "fat girl" jeans that lurk in the back of every woman's closet will no longer fit bringing the number to 5.

7:00 am Watch the news on Good Morning America.

7:10 am Watch the local weather.

7:15 am Get up, shuffle in to bathroom to pee, wash my face, put in my contacts, pee again.

7:30 am Pull jeans out of dryer that I washed last night because they are what I'll be living in for the next week. See above.

7:35 am Shave legs which is becoming a challenge because when I bend over I can't breathe so well even this early in the game.

7:48 am Pee. Again.

7:50 am Put on make up.

7:55 am Fix hair.

8:04 am Pee.

8:05 am Eat breakfast. A lovely bowl of Fruity Cheerios. Good for me and baby.

8:15 am Give milk dregs from cereal bowl to cat.

8:16 am Pee.

8:18 am Brush teeth.

8:20 am Leave for work.

8:30 am Get to work.

8:31 am Pee.

The next five and a half hours are filled with Museum type things interspersed with a trip to the bathroom to pee every 30 minutes or so.

Well! Talk about a dramatic shift in moods yesterday. I was having a shitty Sunday night and Monday morning. I was pissed that 97% of my clothes don't fit and that I have to spend A LOT of time planning what I'm going to wear even if it's just to go to the grocery store because NOTHING FITS! And to top it all off I had a HUGE headache and felt like crap and didn't have the energy to do the things that I normally do that allows us not to live in a pigpen. Dishes in the sink, the floor needed vacuuming, presents to wrap, the towels needed to be done and there were no grocery's. And hubs was out of commission because he was sick. I just felt like emotional shit yesterday. And THEN I felt the baby move at 6:45pm last night. OH MY GOD! That is the biggest adrenaline rush I've ever had. It was so cool! It felt like bubbles popping in my stomach. It sounds stupid, because I've had about 6 positive pregnancy tests, and I SAW the baby move on the ultrasound and have heard the baby's heartbeat like 3 times now but this makes it so real. And no. I'm not going soft.

i'm not nuts....i'm "glowing"

My best friend in the world because she says she puts up with all my crazy shit tagged me with this today. But I contend that it's not crazy it's "glowing". I mean, anyone could want a cookie one minute and then decide 2 minutes later that they don't. Really!

things i can no longer least for another 6 months

In no particular order....

1. Drink (although I don't really drink).
2. Smoke ( and I don't smoke).
3. Wear either of my two favorite dresses...the brown taffeta Banana Republic that's so very practical because it has pockets and my black and white B. Moss.
4. Curl up into a tight little ball as I watch a movie on my sofa with my afghan and cat. Sort of impedes that whole breathing thing a little.
5. Listen to opera. Especially La Bohem.
6. Stay awake past 9:15 pm.
7. Eat cottage cheese. Or look at cottage cheese. Or smell cottage cheese. Or even think about cottage cheese. In fact I'm done with cottage cheese all together.
8. Sleep on my stomach.
9. Clean the litter box (not really missing this one).
10. And by next week, button my jeans.
