What happens when (just two months after meeting) a Baptist preacher's son and small-town pastor's daughter surprisingly discover they've committed the ultimate faux pas? Now it's a journey of finding out what it is to love a little baby surprise and what to do about this new husband.

Belly Footprints

Sometimes I don't like this whole being prego thing.  Ok, who am I kidding?  There's a whole lot of times I don't like this prego thing.  Everyone keeps talking about a glow I'm supposed to have, but the only difference in my appearance I've noticed is horribly awful skin.  If anyone knows where I can purchase this 'glow' please let me know. 

My belly has been poking out too, and Yohan told me it was probably just bloating and when I woke up in the morning it would've gone down.  However, the ladies at the doc confirmed that it is NOT bloating.  I'm still convinced some of it is bloating since I drink about a tub-full of water a night.  And have I mentioned that I can't get full these days, no matter how often I eat.

Poor little bean - I hope he doesn't think I'm not excited about him.  I just wish I could mix up a batter throw it in the oven in the kitchen (instead of my oven) for 9 months and bake a little baby that way.  I complained to Yohan the other night as I was sitting on the toilet for the 12th time in an hour about how I wish he could have the bad skin while I was prego.  He offered to rub Crisco on his face for me, but then I'd just be stressed because we both had bad skin.

I found out something today however, that is exciting.  Apparently, I may be able to see Jr.'s foot or hand or butt when he pushes up against my belly.  What a fun thing to see!  Yohan says I will start to get more excited about being prego when I get fatter - I hope so, or someone will have to pay!

This photo is definitely exaggerated, and it will be nothing close to that defined - but still!


  1. Hey babe, you are not alone. Here's a quote from an email from an old friend:

    "I did not like being pregnant either-I never understood all those women who were like "it was the best time of my life"-YEAH RIGHT!"

    I can't wait to be able to feel Jr, but to see Jr pushing against your belly, will be insane! You'll dig it when you really show babe, besides being a super hot prego, you'll get the red carpet treatment from strangers;)

    You're doing awesome babe! Can't wait to head to the hills with you:)

    Shake N Bake, it's good as hell!

  2. I'm cathching up here Li:) With both my kids I lost over 30 pounds in the first 3 months. I was pretty sickly, SO here I am trying to walk around in stores trying not to throw up and holding my stomach. I'm sure everyone thought I was just Anorexic. I had no pity and manners from the general public until they would look at me and say..."Awww poor fat pregnant woman." That's when you get people wanting to open doors and let you cut in line. YIPPIE all the perks of being pregnant...LOL!
