That title is meant to be sung, think K-Ci and JoJo.
Welp I'm pregnant. I wanted to write a few memories down that I've had so far, partly because I feel like I'll want to remember them later and partly because my pregnancy app won't get off my back about it! I realize that for non-pregnant, non-mothers this information means nothing and is boring, so no pressure to read on.
The first person we told was the first counselor in our bishopric, wha? About 6 weeks in he asked if I would be the camp director for girls camp this year. bahaha I almost died. He started by asking if I remembered doing it two years ago and I was like, yeah!! unfortunately it's something I'll never forget. The girls had apparently requested that I be the camp director and I was like that's sweet, they must not remember what a little B I was. I said the first time I did it, it was extremely difficult and that I wasn't really excited about doing it again. That wasn't enough, so I said I don't know if I'd be able to get time off work. I only get so many days a year and many of them were already reserved, still these excuses weren't cutting it. So...I pulled out the big guns and said, there's a good chance I'd be very pregnant at that time and I don't know if I could really handle the physical demands of being the camp slave again. Boom. No more questions asked. The first counselor in the bishopric was the last person i expected to be telling our news first, but desperate times people. He said he'd keep it quiet, but I'm sure it was probably brought up in the next ward council. (Nate thinks he is staying quiet) Luckily there's not much of an overlap between our Logan life and our Home/Family life. So even if he did tell, it would have been pretty crazy if that information some how made it down to someone that we actually cared about telling.
After that the news started leaking out to pretty random people. Nate's work friends found out because one night we were playing walleyball and after about an hour, I felt terrible and we had to go. For some reason, everyone jumped straight to that conclusion. I swear I'm the only one who doesn't immediately think someone is pregnant just because they're sick. From 7-10 weeks I was so freaking tired. I didn't want to do anything and every day I got home from work and barely made it to the couch, where I laid ALL night. It was so lazy, but it's really all I could do. Nate was really good and took care of me, made me dinner and said really encouraging things like, "I can't believe you're letting that little baby push you around like that" and "The baby is the size of a grape? I ate a grape today and you don't see me whining about it!"That's how it works right?
Back in January, when we first found out that we were pregnant! We were excited but mostly didn't think it was real.
The best part about getting sick is Nate seriously takes such good care of me. This is the breakfast he made me when we got home from Daytona Beach and I was hating life.
Some bump pics, again one of the main reasons I took these is because my pregnancy app is so bossy about it. I should maybe just delete it, but then how would I know what size of fruit the baby is?
20 weeks. Halfway there! This is the only dress that still fits comfortably, and there's room to grow. I wore it to Juje's wedding. I don't think it's a maternity dress, but it would explain why I hated how I looked in it in all those wedding pictures. I'm finally to the point that the old rubber band trick on the jeans isn't cutting it. It's time to embrace the maternity pants.
Gender revealing at the Color Vibe.
-Apples have never tasted so good, it's all I ever want. Juje and I have a good theory on why, if you want to hear it sometime.
-Ice cold water.
-Snow cones. Maybe because for some stupid reason I think they'll help decrease the heartburn. Pretty sound logic if you think about it.
Apples and ice water are the only consistent cravings, the rest just come and go like regular non-pregnant cravings. That makes me sound like I'm being all healthy, but believe me, I eat all the candy and chips.
-La-A (pronounced la-dash-a) get it?
-Candice (after candice the gnome)
Those are fake names, so now when you hear the real ones, you'll like them more. But I'll only tell you the real ones in person, so I can watch your face and know how you really feel, even though I don't really care how you feel.
-Heartburn. Inferno. Fire. Ouchy. I never knew heartburn could hurt so bad.
-Weird tailbone pain.
I've been so lucky! I haven't been really that nauseous at all, never threw up and my energy has been great since about 10 weeks.
-Sleeping on my belly
-Working out without wanting to die
-The days when my boss wouldn't say, "You're eating for two" every single day.
We haven't bought one thing for this girl yet, but hopefully we'll start soon. Things are finally starting to feel real. For a while Nate and I both agreed that it felt like I would be pregnant for a while and then not, but that it wouldn't result in a baby. Now, we're starting to think that we might actually end up with a baby after all this. But she'll probably be kinda cute, so I guess it's okay.
