Pregnancy Cravings - Nectarines, Milk & Apples

Thankfully my Taco Bell chicken chalupa craving has subsided making way for more healthier cravings of fruits such as juicy nectarines, apple slices with peanut butter and organic MILK just to name a few that I am eating & drinking uncontrollably now!

Nectarine here...

Nectarine GONE!

Been eating pretty good with a few bad days here and there and really starting to dig & crave a healthier way of eating more and more each day! Like to stay up later then my man and munch on nectarines (which are so juicy I need to eat them like a rabid dog over the sink) and apples at night instead of chips or sugary cereals like I did when I wasn't pregnant.

Managing to eat a healthy breakfast everyday of a granola bar or cliff bar with a banana and a cup of coffee for quite some time & it's just become the norm for me now. My bomb ass owl mug I got at a Michaels arts & craft store is a big inspiration for my tie dye Retro Owl designs listed in my Etsy shop.

Yummy

Weird Dreams

This pregnacy side effect was a bit weird to comprehend or even believe when I heard about it but low and behold I am experiencing it in full technicolor! 

I didn't bother writing down all my weird dreams at first just telling my man about the oddness when I had woke. Now I'm finally writing some of them down to share with ya'll cause dang, some are really zany lol!

Dream #1
First one I remember was Jason & I drove my red 99 VW beetle to the movie theater for a date night which ended up being anything but that. We were watching the movie which was so lame and very off and the whole theater was like WTF?! Then some people came out into the audience and were sitting by people and fucking with them. Like a girl came and sat by people by us and was trying to get one of us to give her a hickey. I tried to shake it off and just thought damn some people are wanked! Then another dude came out and was trying to get us to smoke weed outta a pipe in the theater! Ahhh I took it away and went to my car to hide the pipe in the wheel well. It was so crazy, lol. Finally the film crew came out and told us this was all a prank, the odd movie playing, slutty girl and dope smoker tricks which were being filmed for a documentary on how people react. WTF is right and why did I hide a weed pipe in my car. That's just stupid...

Dream #2
Jason and I were trapped in a room in a house we shared with my friend Amelia and her husband. Who trapped us I have no idea but we couldn't get out at all and had been in there for a few days. I had had a newborn baby at the time and things were getting low so Jason was once again trying to find a way out and finally did! He told me to stay in the room while he managed to get Amelia and her husband Dave out of their rooms, then the two guys went off to make sure the house was free of our kidnapper/trapper. Sadly they got murdered and Amelia & I were so sad and freaked the hell out! She decided to run for it and got killed as well while I took the baby and ran the other way getting outside to my 18 wheeler. Yep I drove an 18 wheeler for some reason lol. I was having a hard time getting into the semi with the baby and everything and saw the killer coming for me FAST! To my amazement Woody Harrelson came to my rescue and got me in the semi safe and sound while killing the killer. Then we drove off into the sunset. He was my hero <3

Dream #3
I had been an invisible witness to multiple murders in a trailer court. It's like I was right there with them when they were killing people in their own trailer but they couldn't see me. Every room was filthy and crowded and some had dead bodies in them like they were stocking up or something. To be perfectly honest I've been watching a lot of horror movies and started watching Criminal Minds from season 1 so it doesn't surprise me to have these messed up dreams but dang they seem so real! lol Maybe I should lay off the horror flicks and such....

Dream #4
While attending a school of some sort I was having issues with the woman in charge and she was treating me very unfair at times. Everyone else could take the elevator to top floors but I only was allowed to take the loooong stairs which was tiring holding books and shit. Then one day outside while playing catch a ball hit a dudes head and part of his skull came off unveiling a monster face underneath, he died and we buried him in a deep hole that was being dug to put a post in. That was that, no questions asked, no cops or ambulance called, nothing. I was wigged out and decided to break free from the school that night by jumping a tall fence. I got away and ran like the dickens into the country. After a few miles of running I saw cop lights by the fence I jumped and figured they realized I got free so I kept running more until I got into a small town. Out of the blue the cops caught up to me but I hid in a house nearby. Looking out the window I saw a truck crash into another car and the truck driver died, then an alien came out from the sky to the scene. Without being seen I snuck into the dead truck drivers vehicle and drove off to another town and went through a drive-thru to get some dinner. Yep that was that. WTF?!

The dreams are so intense that I often find myself drooling on my pillow when awakening!

Telling The Parents


 So the day had come to finally give Jason's Mom and Dad the big news and we made it pretty special to them in a big way!

His Mom had retired not to long ago and his Dad had just retired as well so we made a cute little retirement card for them to share the big news over dinner. Took forever to get the perfect wording and had it all laid out on my print shop program, but I couldn't print it out straight or centered on the greeting card for the life of me. Uggggh I seriously wasted around 6 cards trying to do it, ahhhhh. It was pissing me off soooo much I just had to give up after the printer ran out of ink. No lie! Looking back it's funny now but I was so fuming mad that I couldn't even print out a simple front and inside - word only mind you - card for them. 

Front

Ended up hand writing it and STILL was screwing it up, like 3 more times! Dang nab musta been nervous. Finally I got a decent one with no misspelled words or lack of space for the rest of a word...then to top the card off we put the profile ultrasound picture it it for them!

Inside news!

I thought it was clever as heck and something to remember always, wish I would of got a pic of his Moms reaction. Doh. Needless to say they were excited for this is gonna be their first grandchild!

Feeling Movements in Me Belly

One part I know I loved with my first pregnancy and have been looking forward to is feeling the amazing movements of the baby inside me & finally the day has come! 

Wee baby foot thats starting to thump me belly!

Feels like gas and weird butterflies flying around in your tummy or perhaps a fish doing flip flops in there lol. Amazing feeling, and makes this pregnancy even more real then it ever has been so far. The ultrasound was a kick into reality of what is to be but feeling the movements is a soon to be everyday reminder, along with an expanding belly! Makes me forget about the crappy morning sickness I'd been going through the first trimester +

Still haven't officially announced our pregnancy to all, I'm not sure why I'm putting it off and making everyone wait for this exciting news. Making some tie dye tees to snap a fun & memorable photo announcement for that in July. I need to get busy like NOW, just been so t-i-r-e-d still!

First OB/GYN Appointment & Ultrasound - 18 Weeks Pregnant

I had to re-schedule my first official OB appointment last month to TODAY! It's been making me so nervous waiting an extra month to go to the doctor since I have clearly put it off for many many months. Bad girl. Had some issues with my insurance that had been holding me back & what a pain that all became. 

Was super nervous and totally forgot what I was in store for so things went semi smoothly. First off I could not pee in that cup much. Spaced the peeing in a cup part out completely even tho you do it each darn OB visit. Derrrrr. Note taken for next time, hydrate up! Weighed in at 200 lbs. (Normally I weight 190 - 195) Only met a few nurses today, will be meeting my actual Doctor next time. Had to go through all the "Fun" girl check-up stuff, STD testing and get my blood drawn which for some reason I was a wee bit scared of but ended up not feeling a thing luckily. To top it off & to my surprise...

I got my first ultrasound done too! 





The face & profile pics are so scary honestly...Yikes!
Looks similar to Gages ultrasound back in 1995.
