I am loving lemony foods lately!  How appropriate since I'm now 14 weeks along (minus a day) and baby is the size of a lemon! Bump pic!

Weight gain is +2 lbs and it's now obvious I'm pregnant. People at work who I haven't even told are randomly congratulating me now once they catch sight of my stomach so I guess there's no longer a question. Good thing this isn't a food baby or I'd be pissed!

Annoyance of the week: My coworker (who I strongly suspect may be a hoarder) has been trying to give me all her old baby stuff.  Now, that might sound like a nice thing except for the fact that her youngest child is NINE.  She has had this shit laying around her house for NINE YEARS and keeps trying to pass it off on me like it's a present that I should be excited about. Umm, thanks but no, I do not want your used, decade-old changing pad! Or the ugly giraffe poster that was hanging in the kid's room that is now yellowed and curled up on the sides.  I'm not sure if she thinks she's being nice or if she's finally getting around to some loooong overdue spring cleaning, but either way, I really don't know what to do.  I don't want to insult her but.... NO! I do not want your ancient recycled shit! You know who does though?  The garbage man.

Awesomeness of the week: Morning sickness has been letting up considerably!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
That was a pretty rough 1st trimester. I am thrilled that it is now over and I am loving 2nd tri so far!!  I'm feeling better, I have some more energy, I'm sleeping better, AND I have a cute bump forming! Plus, not having to suck in my stomach is fun :-)

My next appt with my midwife is this Tuesday!  I'm looking forward to hearing the heartbeat again but besides that I really am not sure what else we'll be doing...guess I'll find out on Tues!


  1. Woohoo lemons! I craved lemonade pretty much my whole pregnancy :)

    Glad your bump is becoming distinguished! I hated that in between stage where it isn't obvious whether it is baby vs fat

    1. I'm drinking lemonade as I type this! Nantucket Nectars - I like the tart kind!

  2. Yay for morning sickness letting up! Your bump is too cute, btw! I love it!

  3. Woo hoo for morning sickness finally letting up for you!! You are so freakin' cute, look at your beautiful little bump! Lots of love, as always, to you and Petey Nugget! <3

  4. You are so effing cute. I just can't with your bump right now.

    WTF with your coworker?!?! I would not know how to handle that AT ALL.

    So so happy you're starting to feel better!!

  5. I'm so happy to hear that the second trimester is treating you better! You look great (I love your outfit too)! I am really surprised that you don't want an ancient recycled changing pad though :P

  6. Aww, cute bump! Cute bathroom too, by the way. Why wouldn't you want a crinkly yellowing poster of giraffe? LOL I mean, you must be pretty special to her if she's been encountering pregnant women all these years and finally decided to pass the stuff along to you :P Also, glad to hear the morning sickness is easing up :)

  7. yay for morning sickness getting better! I really don't understand your co-worker, lol...I can't imagine forcing stuff on someone, I mean it'd be one thing to ASK you if you would like some of her old things, but just randomly giving it to you without even letting you look through it to choose?? weird. Just tell her you're not sure what you'll need yet & decline her little "gifts", lol. :p

  8. Hahaha, you girls kill me :-)

  9. Love that little lemon :) Sorry about the annoying coworker. Sounds like she should donate the stuff to good will! I'm so happy to hear the morning sickness is easing up!
