I have a problem

I have a problem and it is so small, yet owns my thoughts. I haven't bought this problem for like 5 years and a month ago I broke down because they were on sell. A month later they are still on sell so I bought them again. Curse you chewy chocolate chip cookies. I remember when I was younger I would eat a whole sleeve of these cookies. Well Chips Ahoy has gotten creative and instead of 2 sleeves has broken it up into 4 smaller sleeves. So eating 1 out of the 4 sleeves on the way home from the grocery store isn't really that bad. The cookies are so small and light, it's almost like you need 10 to get the taste of 1 cookie. Maybe 1 out of 4 sleeves isn't bad but when you end up eating the full 4 sleeves all to yourself it becomes a problem. These last 3 weeks of pregnancy I feel like I am going to gain as much weight as I have the first 37 weeks. I didn't really have a sweet tooth during pregnancy and now I think it's coming back. My goal is once this baby is out I'm going off sugar, not just candy this time but all sugar. Well see how that goes because sometimes I just need it. If I want to fit back into my jeans though and not wear maternity clothes forever I better get my butt in gear. I was going to wait until after the baby but I feel like I can't control my sugar cravings and maybe I should just start now to soften the blow. For some reason whenever I go off candy it's always right before Halloween which is totally dumb but maybe this time I can stay off instead of restarting each year. So as I sit here with my milk and last sleeve of cookies, I well take my last bit and not buy them again no matter what kind of deal is going on.

Pregnancy & Me

  • It's boiling down to the last 3 weeks before this little boy comes out and I am ready to be comfortable again. Pregnancy started out quit simple and still is pretty simple just a little more uncomfortable. Joe and I went to Lion King last night and it was amazing. I didn't think being pregnant would be too big of a deal but sitting for more than 2 1/2 hours while being 9 months pregnant wasn't the easiest thing. I did bring a pillow which helped and I'm pretty sure our little guy loved the music because he literally did not stop moving the whole time. Mostly breaking my ribs but I guess motherhood has already started and the happiness begins.
  • - for the first 7 months pregnancy didn't really phase me
  • - starting in month 8 pregnancy has gotten the best of me
  • -i miss being able to sit forward without grunting
  • - while driving in shot gun I have resorted to changing the radio with my toes or have found a pointer just so I don't have to lean forward

- my clothes break down have always been into effect but are now getting worse. I only have 1 pair of jeans to wear but it's too stinkin hot to wear them. Last night I had an outfit on but had to change the last second due to my ankles being too fat to wear leggings. So yes I resorted back to my jeans and decided to sweat it out.

- my throat burns everyday especially when I'm trying to get my 2 hours of sleep before i have to get up to pee.

- So yes pregnancy has it's sucky moments but is so exciting. In the end all the suckiness goes away and then I can be comfortable and so happy with our little family.

- Every time I see a new baby it doesn't make sense that has been growing inside a person. They come out with their own faces. I'm excited for the next 3 weeks and can't wait for baby no name to come out. Babies/ kids are super expensive and Joe has been in desperate need for a vacation but he is being a good sport about it. I guess he kinda understands why we can't go on a cruise right now. He is still hoping though to go on a big vacay in January or something ridiculous like that(without the kid). Maybe once the little guy comes he'll understand, until then I'll just smile and say ok.

- I don't have really any stretch marks besides this one that is going to be the end of me. Every time I see that little guy I think of a rap song and I quote, " Them stretch marks on your hips is just bungee cords bringin you back when you dip". So that's all I have to say about that

- Yes random post but at leat I posted. 3 weeks and counting...
