Pregnancy Update

Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes, readers. Big B and I are very excited. :)

I found out a few weeks ago; I’m not very far along, only about 7 weeks. Thing #2 is only the size of a blueberry, and consequently, makes eating blueberries impossible. I was going to try to wait till I was out of my first trimester to tell everybody, but let’s be honest, I’ve been consumed with thoughts of my pregnancy, and of being sick due to the pregnancy, and I haven’t had anything else to blog about as a result. My chances of miscarrying are quite slim now, (about 5%) so I figure I’m pretty safe.

We’re excited to finally be pregnant again, but I’m thinking it’s kind of lame how sick I feel. With Cade, I swear it wasn’t quite so intense all the time. My morning sickness is worse; I pee like Seabiscuit, and don’t even get me started on how badly my breasticles hurt. SERIOUSLY if you even look at them in a hostile way they will start to ache. Be gentle with them, Big B sure has to haha.

Also, I cry a lot more, and tend to lose it when small children crap their pants. And I’m hungry. Like, ravenous. This is an entirely good thing, I realize. I am partaking, don’t you worry.

No one else can tell yet, but I can totally tell I’m getting a baby bump – Brandon can too. My tummy isn’t quite so flat…it’s getting a bit rounded, and I’m shocked at how fast it’s coming and also I was looking at maternity clothes online and wanted to puke and/or cry because I can’t believe I’m going to have to start sporting said clothes in the near future. I’m going to look tent-like. But I’m ready, it’ll be good. Right? I'm not fat, I'm pregnant!

So there it is. If anybody knows where I can buy long maternity jeans, give me a holler. I need at least a 35 ½” inseam, and for real freaking out because I can’t find any that’ll fit my stems. I might have to pull a Juno and have my mom sew an elastic band into my jeans. Just kidding, I’d never ruin my beautiful designer jeans in that manner!!

P.S. I just threw up my blueberry muffin poptarts. DO NOT PARTAKE OF BLUEBERRY POPTARTS while you are pregnant. Gross. And I even had to do it at the public bathroom at work and get my face all close to the toilet and stuff…icky icky. And it was blue. I mean my vomit. Crap. Now I’m hungry again. Suck what should I eat? The vending machines? Take out? Will my boss let me leave to procure food before I turn into Momzilla and eat HIM? The dilemmas, the dilemmas…moan groan lament wail gnash teeth cry. Sigh.

Wow. You are really feeling it! I hope the throw-up feelings go away soon. My friend who was throwing up so much had really bad electrolytes b/c of it, and her doc put her on some pregnancy-safe anti-nausea meds. If it's bad enough, I'm sure you could look into that.

When you mentioned blueberry muffin poptarts I laughed cuz while I was reading this I was actually eating a blueberry pop tart (not sure what the muffin thing is though). I liked it. But prob. not if I was prego. T and I will start soon. Keep us posted on what's going on, it's funny reading your posts!

I've heard ginger tea helps with nausea but I could never stomach it. If it gets too bad you can always get the fenigrin (sp?) shots. I am so excited for you, and maybe a teeny bit jealous! I want to be prego too, only with out the vomiting part. Good luck!

Congrats!! I'd try Old Navy for pants they have long. But def try them on cause I swear every pair has a diff inseam (and DONT dry them!) Also I found a random pair at Kohls that was long enough. And I have heard that store A Pea in a Pod in Gateway has super cute long designer jeans. I was too cheap to justify spending 100$ on jeans that I'd wear for a few months! Good luck :)

I giggled when you said, 'What should I eat? The vending machines?' because I had a mental image of someone trying to eat a vending machine.

Congrats!

Motherhood has some great pants - and they are L-O-N-G! Wish I would have saved mine - they would have fit you perfectly.

Brie, that it the cutest and sweetest pic of C. Oh he will love that someday. BTW i can't even think about your blueberry pop tart so.... I had to read it all real quick! Love to you.

My brain isn't functioning normally tonight so for now, i send hugs and a note to let you know I was here :) xox

CookieGirl said...

This is all so exciting, Brie. Can't wait to follow along with your story!! Congrats a million times. xoxo

Yeah!!! So fun. I think you have longer legs than me. I did find a really cute pair of jeans at Motherhood...BUT...even though I may be slightly taller, I have a freakishly long torso, with not so long of legs. You could at least try there. I am lucky I was prego all through the hot, humid summer cause the thought of wearing jeans made me wanna puke! My tall sister-in-law found hers at gap, but I never could! Good luck!!

Mister Cade looks so big in this picture! Has he outgrown his Cars boots yet? I'm guessing yes!

Hey, congrats! Sorry I completely missed the announcement, and sort of the update, but yay! Boo on the sick though. Hope you feel better soon.
