a Chinese cabbage

28 weeks
Welcome 3rd Trimester!!!!!
Some things to look forward to:
  • an EPIDURAL!!!
  • a Rhogam shot
  • Contractions
  • less sleep
  • Dr. visits every 2 weeks
  • more weight gain....
  • worse 'pubic bone' pain
  • baby showers!!
  • my wedding ring not fitting anymore...
  • a hospital tour
  • finding a pediatrician (any reccomendations?)
  • finishing the nursery!

So I'm rounding the home stretch. Don't worry, I am ready to breastfeed with my left guy, even though I am not going to be breastfeeding. My freaking crotch and back hurt like crazy, but other than that, I'm ok. Got some cute 3D pictures of his little face this week....

kind of hard to see the first one..... really close up. Anyway, I am almost feeling so much movement that it is concerning. I know they say decreased movement is bad, but gee, it feels like he is having a seizure or panic attack sometimes..... I guess he just likes the Dr Pepper.

Some Random Thoughts

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

Was learning cursive really necessary?

Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day. This hits me about 8:30 every morning lately.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

I think the freezer deserves a light as well..

I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

English Hothouse Cucumber

Whatever that is, it looks freakishly long, is Max's appx size this week. Almost 2 pounds! 6 1/2 months today!

His 'movement' got a little intense the other day. I am pretty sure he was doing a 'scissor hold' on my bladder followed by a kung fu kick/backflip. (Which sounds exactly like something Benj would do if he could....) Almost peed myself. Startled me a little. I have a miserable cold and desperately want to take Ny-Quil and Ibuprofin :(

Let me also just mention: the 'turd' picture good friend Cher thought that was my darling husband.

Benjamin Franklin and a 'turd' costume

So this Halloween/Daylight saving time season has brought to my attention yet another pet peeve or two of of mine.

Nothing worse than when you can't tell what the hell someone is dressed up as. Drives me freaking crazy. Half the time these people want you to ask and I don't even want to give them the satisfaction of that, I will just make fun of them instead. Here are a few examples:

My first guess here would be some sort of Star Trek something. The caption on the website said "turd"
This just freaking pisses me right off.

Classic "What the hell" costume. I still don't know, and I'm not sure he knows either.

I can see at least some work went into this. Evidently it is a '9'. I'd have thought maybe a Japanese cartoon thing.....!!???


This is another classic. Skier stuck in a power box? Nope, supossed to be a midget.
And finally, my favorite. The Jr. High girl who has it together in her head, but no one else really grasps it. Even when you ask her, she dives into a rant about a "gothic super hero woman who likes to read -slash- a Twilight character -slash- I wanted to die my hair purple....."

And then comes Daylight Saving Time. What is this?! Messing with my sleep! Don't get me wrong, Benajmin Franklin was a great guy, but I bet most of you haven't even thought about it really, just blindly changed the clocks like nothing was wrong and it was comepletely normal. YOU DON'T GET TO JUST CHANGE THE TIME!!! We aren't farming anymore. Yes, there are farmers, but they are smart enought to work it out. If you want more sunlight, go with the flow of the season and get up a little earlier or later. There is absolutely no need to be messing with let alone changing TIME. That is just like one day someone said, "Yeah, I don't really like Tuesdays, so 3 times a year we will just skip them." And somehow the whole world got involved and we all get screwed up in our tight schedules 2 times a year. Kinda like the whole February/"Leap" Year thing.....?! It's all a little suspicious to me.
