What is wrong with people?

Okay so today I'm standing behind the front desk in the office and a patient walks in, this is the conversation that follows:

patient: " Oh, your pregnant."
Me: " yes, I 'm due in about 4 weeks."
Patient: " I didn't realize, you are usually sitting down. I thought your face was just chubby, you know, because bigger girls have chubby faces."
Me: " Well, Thanks."

I couldn't believe that somebody just said that to me. Whether I was pregnant or not, who says something like to another person? It's amazing that some people don't think before they open their mouths.

People think that just because I'm pregnant it gives them the right to say things about how big I am. It's one thing for my husband or close friends to say something, I know they are joking. But for people that either don't know me or don't know me very well to say things, it just makes me so mad. Don't call me fatty, ask me if I'm having twins, or call me any of the other names you might think is okay, ITS NOT OKAY!!!!!!!

Question and answer

Question: Who said "If I were a septic tank?"

answer: My husband on his thought process to help locate my brothers Septic Tank.

Question: Who no longer fits into the seats at Taco Bell and feels like a big fat cow?

answer: Paula the pregnant one. Nothing could make you feel fatter than going into Taco Bell only to discover that you no longer fit into the seats without your stomach being pushed back into itself.....I had to sit in the handicap spot, where the seat is unattached and actually pulls out. YIKES!!!

There is nothing better in life right now than my daily hour nap. I don't think I'd make it through the day without it. Around 2-3 pm, my preggo hormones kick in and I feel like somebody slipped me the date rape drug ( Although that may very well be my husband). My eyes become really heavy and I drop where ever I happen to be. Okay not literally, as today I was at the grocery store when it hit, and can't you just see me snoozing in the meat section?

Men are so funny!

I think its so funny that my husband is so excited over getting a new trash can! It cracks me up that the little things in life make him so happy!

I just hope the little gifts Ella will be leaving him will make him just as happy!!!

Week by Week Belly shots

I thought this would be fun to see how I've grown over the last 32 weeks:

12 weeks

14 weeks

16 weeks18 weeks20 weeks22 weeks24 weeks
26 weeks 28 weeks
30 weeks 32 weeks

Getting ready!!

I know babies are expensive, but I didn't realize how much would be spent before she even gets here. I've got lists all over the house of stuff that we need to buy. I've got a full page of items that need to be packed for the hospital or bought. I'm slowly getting them check off. We got the rocker ordered and still need to buy the other pack n play (for downstairs) and a swing.

We only have 7 weeks left.....maybe she will be early. I've started packing my bag just in case, I don't want to have to send Mike back home to pack things...(scary thought)!!

Last night we picked up a white bookshelf and got that put together. I have to still put up a closet organizer.

Taking Responsibility for your own action....I don't think so!!!

So here's the newest thing: Intermittent Explosive Disorder. This is what the "Experts" are now calling the disorder that causes people to have road rage. Give me a freaking break! What ever happened to taking responsibility for ones own actions? I can see it now, some guy is going to be unable to control his self, get pissed off, cause some person to drive off the road, over a bridge and kill them and the guy will get off because he has IED disorder!

What has happened to our society that every one has to blame someone else for their actions? Lets start suing our parents for our genes, " Sorry Mom and Dad, I'm suing you because its all your fault that you passed these faulty genes on to me." I get so tired of people blaming everyone else for their problems.

Painting is done....Landscaping is not....

YEAH!!! The loft and living room are finished!! I'm so excited. I'v been waiting for this for years, here are the finished walls:



Landscaping is still not finished in front, although most of the bricks are in place, its just a matter of now getting dirt, rock, plastic and plants. Hopefully it will be done by this weekend.

I'm gettin bigger and bigger every day: Here I am at 30 weeks.

I'ts amazing to me that your body can stretch the way it does, so far I've been lucky and I haven't gotten one stretch mark (Knock on Wood). Ella is due in 8 weeks and I'm just about ready to be done with being pregnant. My feet are "SWOLLEN" ( some of you get this) and my belly is starting to get in the way of simple everyday things: Shaving my legs has become a circus act. Putting lotion on my feet and legs, almost impossible. Getting out of bed......rolling over in bed......
