I knew that I shouldn't have talked about it so much. But it was a common first question from anyone that knew. And it's not that I was bragging, because I really wasn't. Not at all. I was actually really surprised, especially given my [digestive] history. So I should have known it was coming. And it did. In full force this week. Yes, my friends, the vomiting has ensued. Bleh. Everything I eat just comes right back up. And in a very violent way. I did not expect this to start in week 10 but here we are, and it's okay. Obviously all for a very good cause. I had heard some nonsense that the vomiting doesn't actually make you feel better when pregnant, but that was a lie. I actually have welcomed it because it does make me feel better. So, um...thank you?There. I talked about vomit for a whole paragraph. And that was the first and perhaps, but not likely, the last time I do it.
I'm wearing a bella band today. Uh, I don't like it. Sorry but wearing something that is sorta tight around your stomach when you're already not feeling well doesn't really feel that comfortable. I keep messing with it. And it lands at a weird place that is very unflattering to my hips and thighs. And I don't need any help making that area look unflattering :) Oh well. It is better than the rubber band thing so I'll deal. And I don't feel like I have to pee 24/7 because I've pushed my tight waistband down to where it presses on my bladder, so that's good. I bought maternity pants last night, and I'm buying a few more things today online. Not that I necessarily need them yet (well yes, I do need the work pants actually) but I have that 30% off Gap coupon that I'm sure everyone and their mom has. Even Lee got one and he never shops at the Gap. Anyway, I'm going to take advantage of the 30% off while I can. And it's an excuse to buy stuff :)
Today is my mom's birthday! Yes, Friday the 13th! Actually it's on a Friday fairly often. I mean, at least once every 7 years, right? Anyway. We are randomly going to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar. My dad picked it, haha. Whatever I don't care. The menu is weird though. Or maybe it's not and I just didn't see anything I liked and thought that was weird. Anyway, Lee is really excited and he's been talking about it for like 3 days about how he's excited to go there. We're simple people.
Other than that, I don't know what we're doing this weekend. Lee's friend is in town so he will be with the guys pretty much all day Saturday. I want to put up the Christmas tree but I am almost 100% sure that will not happen. I keep telling myself that I will sweep and mop the floors and clean my neglected bathroom, but in reality I'm not sure it will happen. When we told my parents that I was pregnant, we started talking about how it was hard on Lee because I couldn't cook anymore. Hell, I couldn't even go in the kitchen. I still can't open the fridge. Anyway, I pretty much (used to) cook dinner every single night so poor Lee. He was confused! Haha. The man cannot cook to save his life. Well, I should say he will not cook. So in an effort to keep him from eating hamburger helper and frozen corn dogs every night (yes, that's what he will eat when there is nothing presented to him) my dad said that he would make some stuff and bring it over for Lee (he is spoiled in my opinion). AND, my dad also mentioned cleaning the house for me. Uh, yes please!! Well, he has been bringing Lee a casserole of some sort once a week, but he hasn't made one more mention of cleaning the house for me!!! What's the problem?! I'm growing a human being in my body and Lee's just living his normal life and he's the one that gets special treatment? That is very unfair! ;)
I hope today goes by fast! This week has lasted 100 years!
