As my boobs get heavier, my stomach grows pointer, my back gets sorer (is that a word? if not tough, I’m using it) and my feet and thighs get fatter I’m beginning to once again despise the effects of pregnancy, not BEING pregnant, but everything that comes along with it.
My mind gets dimmer, which leads me to wonder why I decided to open my Etsy shop at this point and time. So over the past week I’ve finally had the urge to create a few logos, designs, and jewelry creations for my online Etsy shop. You can visit it here at http://www.etsy.com/shop/thaliahawaii.
Oh, so here’s a new side effect, my vision officially sucks. I cannot spend more than about 20 minutes in the sun without sun glasses on. If I do, I am officially blind for another 20 minutes once I step indoors. Now, I know this happens to people who are not pregnant, it’s happened to me before, however, I feel like the effects are 500 billion times GREATER than if I weren’t pregnant.
We also FINALLY finished registering for our baby shower. Who knew that there were so many different kinds of bottles! Slow flow nipples, fast flow nippes, curved bottles, glass bottles, straight bottles, disposables, plastic bottles, and don’t you dare give me a bottle that has BPA! (WTF is BPA?) I feel like I’m already a failure at motherhood, and the baby isn’t even here. What do you even put on a registry to begin with? I know the big stuff but after that do I really have to list EVERY KIND of onesie available on the market? Do I list the 5 different playards I want hoping that you’ll pick one I like or just list the one playard that I like hoping I don’t end up with 6 because target doesn’t delete from the registry once it has been bought. Can you say overwhelmed? No wonder it took me 3 months to finish that dang thing.
Here’s another thing, I went from being the laziest organized person on the planet to becoming the busy bee that needs to keep moving constantly. I can no longer sit down to watch a 5 hour marathon of Charmed or The Big Bang Theory because I get antsy and start to see or think about all the things that need to get done before my little one arrives. And really, it’s things that should have been done LONG before I was pregnant as an every day chore, but being the laziest person ever I just never did it.
Remember I told ya’ll we found out what we’re having a few months ago? Maybe it was only a month ago? My brain is fried and my perception of time is drastically skewed. Anywho, Fiance didn’t want me to share what we were having at the time, but, I think it’s safe to say what we’re having now, considering everyone pretty much knows, and my registry is done, and my baby shower is next month. So here it goes, I’ll leave you with this picture:
It’s a…..Hopefully you can figure it out. 🙂
