Happy Earth Day!!
(it is today, right?)
On your day mother earth, I present you with... itty bitty baby peas!
I'm sorry, I'm typing this as I watch American Idol, and seriously? Could Ryan Seacrest be more awkward? He's pretty much the worst deliverer of bad news ever.
Anyway, I lost my train of thought. Was it something about babies perhaps? Hey speaking of babies, let's talk about MY baby and how weird pregnancy is. I never tire of comparing it to a total body alien invasion and/or parasite. A parasite that's making me fatter instead of skinny.
I have totally been able to feel the baby move which has been awesome and super comforting, but wow. It's already stronger than I thought it would be and I'm thinking if it's kicking me this much now... how the heck is it gonna feel in four months!?
And another thing. Sometimes it freaks me out thinking of a little person inside my body. I don't know what gender I've got in there yet but I get slightly more freaked out when I think of it being a boy for some reason. What if I have a tiny naked squirmy little boy living inside me? Does that not seem weird to anyone else?
Oh, and speaking of naked... I've always thought pregnant people were so cute and adorable with their little bellies and all. But it seems like whenever you tell a pregnant person that they are so cute, they sort of give you a little laugh and a look like, "yeah sure, I only weigh 30 lbs more than I ever have IN MY LIFE." (I have not gained that much weight yet by the way) And I never understood why they wouldn't feel super adorable.
Well now I know. It's because they see themselves in the buff.
And now I don't think pregnancy is quite as cute.
But alas, it is a beautiful thing and I love my little nugget, boy or girl.
Oh speaking of boy or girl, I have my ultrasound on May 5th! In less than 2 weeks I shall know what I'm having! Assuming the little one decides to cooperate of course. I should put a poll on my sidebar... Yes. I think I will do that.
Go vote friends! Predict my baby's gender. Maybe your vote will change the inevitable outcome. Seems almost as probable as when you vote for president huh?
What? Ok, it's clearly time for me to go to bed.
