Bump Update: P is for......


Paranoia; pregnancy is nine months of pure paranoia. I had a Grandma Betty {God rest her soul} who use to convince herself if she ever called our house and we didn't pick up on the first ring that we had all been axed by the Boogie Man. I'm beginning to think Betty wasn't so crazy after all. 

Ribs, oh my! Pretty sure Baby B has a wombmate {ha ha get it?} and it inhabits my left rib. Either that or the kid is already four feet tall.

Eating mac n' cheese will never go out of style, NEVER!!!

Glow? Glow? What pregnancy glow? Instead I feel like a walking ad for Proactive. The "before" ad that is.

New craving? Strawberry milkshakes.

Admiring or hating that fact that the Duchess {whom is due the same month as me} sashayed around in a bikini a few weeks ago. I didn't even look that good pre-preggo.

Newest craving since I wrote that last sentence? Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.

Thankful. Thankful that despite all the sweating, peeing, pains, and worrying that in 17 weeks {17 weeks??? HOLY CRAP!!} we'll be able to welcome our sweet little boy into the world.

Well I think you look great! Pregnancy is the scariest, craziest, most wonderful thing. When I had kayla I was 17 and so clueless. With my 2nd daughter 10 yrs later it was a totally different experience. The worst part I have to agree is always having to pee lol! Heather

Awww.... Look at you!!! How exciting!!! :)

You're so funny, but I can't even imagine all the wild thoughts pregnant women have. I'm pretty sure my own over-analyzing and CDO (get it?) would be in full blown paranoia like you're talking about.

Hang in there, girl, the feelings of worry will never go away (hello, raising little humans and growing them up into big, responsible, self-sufficient humans is a HUGE deal) and you will never have it fully figured out, BUT that little boy will be so loved and cherished by you and D, and you will have these most amazing moments of mommyhood and complete clarity that you are doing everything as best as you can and THAT makes it all *totally* worth it. Just know that doing the best you can and doing what's best for that little fella is *exactly* what you're supposed to do. And I know you're going to handle that with absolute grace and love (even though it will not feel like that at the time).

In short... you totally got this.

Now go get some strawberry milkshakes, mac-n-cheese and cinnamon toast crunch. You're totally earning it. ;)

I know it can be rough & annoying & 'Where are all those prego pluses everyone told me about??' BUT as you said, Soon you'll be holding that little rib-kicker in your arms & your world & heart will never be the same!

Michelle Robblee said...

17 weeks?! You look amazing! Much cuter than Kate! I never looked that cute when I was pregnant. My belly took over my body and no one could even recognize me. Hang in there, things will get better!

I'd love to hear from you!
