There's nothing more beautiful than to be with someone where you both see a future with each other. BINGO! sounds so easy but it's hard to find...and when you do, your life changes and maybe...just maybe you add a little peanut to your duo and make a trio! hint: currently cooking due in July! :)
I always wanted kids, did I imagine myself writing a blog post about pregnancy? no...did I imagine I'd say what I'm about to say? not even close. At first, you see yourself pregnant or you find out you're pregnant, (which you'll remember for the rest of your life) and you're like, yeah I can do it! we can do this!
- 9 months? enough time.
- bump? what's the big deal, I'll work it out after.
- exercise during pregnancy? piece of cake!
- no sleep during baby? I'll snooze while peanut is cooking.
NEWSFLASH ALERT!!!!!!! I don't want to break any bubbles here...but think twice on all of these statements! pregnancy is....well, If you're one of those who loved every MINUTE of it...give me a buzz, I want to take some of your unicorn potion.
So here's a little rundown....9 months, technically 10 because it's supposed to be 40 weeks...goes by really fast! you're already in your third trimester before you even fully understand your lifetime upcoming huge responsibility...I mean HUGE!! you're going to be parents. PARENTS!!!! hello planet earth, what just happened! :P
Bump....? yes, let's talk about it...first of all, let's call them BUMPS. boobs & belly. Good morning sunshine, today you have reached an E cup with a little flavor of 25 extra pounds....l-o-v-i-n-g i-t *insert sarcastic face.* One day your face looks like elephant man and the next you're looking like Queen B ate a few too many hot dogs..no biggie!
exercise during pregnancy? Well some can, absolutely!!! others...If you're as lucky as me and threw up 12 times a day, couldn't even keep water in, missed your man with your throw up of a few inches on a day to day basis but he still loves you and holds your hair........there's no exercise!!!!!!! Luckily....like they say "don'y worry it'll pass at about 12...15 weeks" and you want to punch someone in the face...actually for some it is accurate! it shall pass and you exercise a bit as you're getting bigger, what a mind fudging experience! when was the last time you worked out to get bigger?!
wait did someone say fudge?!! -- Oh the hunger...I've never experienced something like that, and they warned me "if you think you're hungry now! wait till you breastfeed!" so I'll tell you about that when I get there. For now, when I wake up in the morning, Kyle at times turns into a delicious looking pancake, French toast....I mean I'M HUNGRY! feed the beast!
dudes, advice? read the baby books! Kyle wakes up every morning asking me, what do you need, what can I get for you? the thing is, the dad feels powerless especially if you're really sick and you're carrying the peanut so don't let him feel left out! one thing we learned as a team, as a couple is communication! tell him how you're feeling...what you need....get him involved! otherwise he'll feel really shut out...and too many things are changing...emotionally, physically, FOR THE BOTH OF YOU! we learned that hormones are communicated to the man....! haha I won't mention the times I'd look at Kyle and he'd by tearing up at an emotional scene in a random movie..."you alright there my love?" :))) and he'd reply "I don't know why I'm so emotional!!" meanwhile I'm shoving ice Cream in my mouth...well I don't know either!.... jokes!
the No sleep...I'm not there yet but I'm starting to get the weird dreams...the vivid pregnancy dreams...the other day I dreamt of of a tuna pizza...I could feel the crust...taste the cheese...to wake up to no pizza!!!!!! I'm also getting uncomfortable at nights and I know it only gets worse...so rest up princess...anytime of the day..while you can! at least that's the advice I keep getting, I ain't mad at it.
more to come!
