The sweet life

Today I received my first pregnancy comment from a stranger. He looked at my belly and hesitantly asked, "Sooooo...when are you due?" followed by "Is this your first?" then "Boy or girl?" He seemed very happy for me. Sweet guy.

I was wearing this shirt I bought at Hot Topic shortly after I found out I was pregnant. It's from a kid's show called Yo Gabba Gabba. (Love this Talk Soup clip, btw.) Even though this isn't a maternity tee, I think it's very appropriate given the circumstances.

There's a party in my tummy
By the way, when I asked Brent to take a pic of my shirt, I didn't realize he was including me from the neck up. I wouldn't have been messing with my hair and probably would have smiled had I known. Didn't want you to think I was purposely trying to give you all bedroom eyes.

This morning I fasted for three hours in preparation for my glucose screening. When it came time to finally drink this bottle of liquid, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it tasted EXACTLY. LIKE. HAWAIIAN. PUNCH! My mother-in-law jokingly offered to add some tequila and lime to it for me before she took me to get my blood drawn. Mmm... probably wouldn't have been half-bad blended with some ice. Glucose Slurpees for everyone!

Fruit punch
I had my MIL take me to the doctor's instead of Brent because it was going to be a simple blood draw, but I still wanted someone to drive me. I had heard that some women have very adverse reactions to the test -- including nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, etc. -- and I wanted to be prepared in the event that I couldn't drive myself back. I felt fine after drinking the liquid and getting my blood drawn. The nurse didn't exactly use kid gloves when taking my blood, so now I have a gnarly bruise on my arm. I should find out the results Monday morning.

My MIL and I grabbed some lunch on the way home. By the time I finished eating, I started to feel the sugar crash. I headed home and proceeded to nap for two and a half hours! I woke up at one point in a pool of drool (sorry, TMI) and in that nap haze where you have to figure out what time and even what day it is. I was happy to remember that it was only Friday evening.

Weekend, here I come!

"Malls are just awful and humiliating. They’re just store after store of these horrible salespeople making a big fuss out of an adult shopping in a junior’s section. There are petite adults who are sort of … smaller, who need to wear … maybe a kids’ size 10." - Angela, The Office

  1. I love Nathaniel. Best. Dancer. Ever.

    Which, of course, means that he would've gotten the boot on SYTYCD.

  2. I hate that feeling when you wake up and you don't know if it's am or pm or what day it is. Hmm, actually that describes me every morning. Have a great weekend.

  6. Oh, and now that we've all seen the results...what were your opinions on SYTYCD this week??? I had no doubt Comfort would go home, but I definitely thought Mark was getting the boot. As much as I liked him, he isn't half as good as Twitch, Joshua, or Will. I was so upset.

  9. Love the shirt! So cute.

    I can't believe you've only just gotten your first pregnancy comment. I think I got my first one at like 18 weeks. Eeek! Now people ask me if I have twins. I swear to effing god.

    My glucose drink was also not bad at all! It was like a bubbly orange soda. Had it on ice and it was no biggie. I hope you pass!

  11. Hi there! :) I'm Lisanne ~ an online friend of Cady's. Found your blog through hers. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Is this your first? Love the T-shirt! :) I'm going to add you to my list of links. I'm an editor, too! :) I had orange Sunkist-flavored glucose drink with both of my pregnancies. Blech.

  12. That is a great T-shirt. Sometimes I crash for two hours too (did yesterday in fact) and don't have the pregnancy card to play. I love naps but don't like nap haze.

  14. Best wishes on the glucose test... I totally failed my first one and had to suffer through the 3 hour one... which I passed with flying colors, and I was pissed for waisting that time!

  15. Cute shirt! Aren't naps the greatest?

  16. So much better than that purple crap I had to drink. And so much cooler that you could drink it at home and go in. I had to do all of that at the doctor's office and wait. Took forever.

  19. "Glucose Slurpees" LOL!!!


    Heh, heh, get used to not knowing what time it is. Or what day it is, for that matter.

    Love the shirt, Nanette!
    I encourage my son to eat his food by telling him the food wants to go to the party in his tummy.
