Pregnancy Reflections, Volume 2

Now that I've been rocking this pregnancy for about 5 months, I thought it was about time for another update. Here are some random thoughts.

-I've started to do things differently because I have no abs. For example I've totally changed the way I get out of the car, get up from the couch and get out of bed. I mean, it isn't like I had brag-worthy abs before, but now they are pathetically non-existent.

-People who know I'm pregnant smile at me and look at my belly. And depending on the shirt I'm wearing strangers either smile or stare. I think I might still be a little bit in that awkward, "Is she pregnant or just chubby?" phase. I'll be glad when that's over.

-Shopping in maternity stores is hilarious. Women checking out women...their bellies, that is. It is hilarious. I love that when I notice a pregnant lady checking out my belly I can read her mind. I know she is totally comparing our sizes. I guess it is the pregnant version of a guys locker room.

-Pardon my french, but where the hell am I supposed to buy underwear? Target doesn't have it, Walmart doesn't have it. I mean, I don't really want to fork over $14.99 for 3 pair at Motherhood Maternity. I live in the 16th poorest city in the nation, you would think they would have options that were cheap. I'm talking Hanes Her Way cheap, my friends. Am I just supposed to go commando?

-It is physically impossible to wash my hands at the sink without covering my shirt belly in water. Ridiculous.

-It is also physically impossible to eat pretty much anything without spilling on myself in a telltale track down the center of my shirt. Awesome.

-I feel the baby, her name is Vera, a lot now. She is pretty active around 3:30 in the afternoon and 10:30 at night. And when she isn't, I worry. And I know I shouldn't worry, but I still do.

-Marc felt Vera for the first time on Father's Day. Aw! :)

-Cheese is the best thing ever made. I love it. A lot.

That is it for now. I'll add more as I think of it. Thanks for reading!

The New Addition

Here are the newest additions to the Anderson household. Don't you love them! I found them on Craigslist for only $75 as a pair. AND the sweet owner dropped them off at our house for free and even sent me these great photos. I think they will be perfect for a nursery for our sweet little girl!

The dresser and wardrobe are going to get a fabulous makeover and I just can't wait to get started! Does anyone have an electric hand sander we could borrow? :)
