Yesterday Andy and I were busy lying around doing as little as humanly possible, therefore my 14 week post comes a day late. Nugget is busy growing, although still no real signs that he/she is in there. My belly isn’t popping out yet and in fact this morning when I got dressed I looked pretty close to my pre-preggo self. Still a little extra padding, but my pants are feeling a tad loser, guess I am not as bloated today as normal. Or it could be that I went hiking with Dad, Big Butter and Dad’s Fiance (notice my progress!). Despite that, I decided to wear a maternity top this morning. Last week I finally tested out my thrift store theory and wouldn’t ya know, I made out like a bandit. MUAH HA HAAAAA! I ended up getting 6 barely used tops, pretty much all of them from Motherhood, and a kakhi skirt. It felt like a steal. I washed everything this weekend and decided today was the day to try one of them out. I definitely like not having to think about keeping my shirt down and walking past mirrors thinking I look a little stuffed-sausage-like in my regular shirts. This shirt is uber-comfy and to top it all off, I already had some accessories that went with it. So I actually look a little put together today. GASP! Could it be? A girlie victory? Well maybe it would be a true victory if I had put on some lip gloss and wore a pair of heels. We’ll call it a mini-victory.
Anyhoodles, this week Nugget is peeing…eeeeewwww! I am glad he/she is isolated in their own little bag. It would be hard for me to think about pee freely roaming around my uterus. I am just going to pretend that by “pee” baby is just pushing water out of his/her parts. Because if I admit that they are peeing, then I have to admit that they are drinking their pee. So gross. Apparently he/she is the size of a lemon. Mmmm this makes me want lemonade.
Well as this is a post for the nugg, you’ve probably guessed that they are nursery ideas. And you’re right. As cute as I find, what I call, traditional nurseries, I decided a while ago that my nursery colors are going to be red, black, and white (maybe grey too). Basically a room themed after the White Stripes, as Big Butter pointed out. As I started finding these pictures though I kind of liked the whole lime green, black and white thing should Nugget be a boy. I dunno, we’ll see. We still have 6 weeks before we know which parts Nugget has, so I am not too anxious to start decorating the room. So, for now I am just collecting images. Well kids, I have to skeedaddle. I am off to Oregon tomorrow for the grand opening of one of my buildings, don’t worry I will remember my camera (hopefully…better make a list). Oh yeah and tomorrow is my birthday. Shoot you’d think I had forgotten about that or something. Nopers, I have me a pedicure to show for the fact that the celebration has already commenced. Yep tomorrow I turn the big 22 plus the square root of 36. Yeah I am making people do math. Hey if you want to know my real age then I am going to make you work for it. So it kind of stinks to have to leave town on my birthday, but I choose to look at it another way, I am getting an all-expenses paid three-day vacation….I just have to do some work while I am there and I am leaving Andy behind. Sad face. Oh wells, I will be back for the weekend and we’ll figure out somethin’ to do together to celebrate. I hope everyone has a great week. I look forward to catching up on all of your blog posts when I get back.
