I am in the final days of my 2nd trimester. That is so hard to believe. It seems like only yesterday I was happy to be starting the 2nd trimester and now it's almost gone! Here are some things I have been loving/hating lately:
-Feeling the baby move. I swear it is doing Tae Bo in there sometimes.
-Brad talking to the baby. It's adorable and hilarious, because he talks to it like it is an adult. I have a feeling that he will continue to speak to it this way after it is born.
-Fruit. I gorge on fruit -- it's a little embarrassing, the sheer amount of fruit I can eat in a day.
-The "Your-Baby-is-as-Big-as-This-Vegetable" emails. This week it was a rutabaga. I'm not even sure how big that is, but I was proud.
-People being nice to me at the grocery store. I had a guy offer to carry my 20-pound bag of dog food to the car for me. I declined, but it was still a nice gesture.
-My nails, which are stronger than they have ever been in my life. I've always had weak, peely nails, but they are so hard now that they're difficult to cut.
-Sore, swollen feet. At the end of the day, my feet hurt and my toes look like mini sausages.
-The heat. Good lord, the heat. See also: sweating.
-Breaking out like a 14-year-old boy.
-People asking me if I can sense what the sex of the baby is. Dude, I don't know and I don't want to know -- that's why we are keeping it a surprise. My mother asks me this question every single time I talk to her. Every. Time.
-Pregnant lady rage. It is a real and dangerous thing.
This weekend Brad is staying in town (!) so I am hoping to go out to dinner, see Batman, and hang out with my love. We haven't seen much of each other lately and I miss it! I am also going to make a mobile with paper lanterns that I bought from a shady website. If it works like my brain thinks it will, I will share.
