As my body grows…

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

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. 🙂

Dressing My Bump: Comfy Womfy!

I promise you, I am growing bigger by the minute.  I am now up to 130lbs (moooo).  I find myself wearing the same clothes over and over again and it is becoming harder and harder to look cute and pregnant…not just pregnant.

My boobs are the size of small countries and my feet are turning into boats.  My grandma warned me about salt and sugar and that I would balloon up, once again I should have listened to her. The sugar part is not so hard really, I’m not a big sweets eater (okay, sometimes I am, my vice is super dense chocolate cake/brownies) it’s the SALT!  Man I love salt.  French Fries, Shoyu rice, chips, pickles, you name it, I’ll probably eat it.

Did I mention how big my boobs were? Okay, Fiance would not approve of me talking about my boobs and I will not disclose exactly how big they are but I’ll tell you this, they are heavy, sore, and heavy.  These bad boys are making it very hard to get dressed in the morning.

Yesterday I didn’t post a dressing my bump post because I was busy making cake pops, and I didn’t go out until much late in the day to go have an early dindin with my bestie.  So here it is…a what I wore…yesterday edition!

It’s not much to look at and it’s really simple but SO COMFY!  This shirt is from Nordstrom Rack, and it’s so uber soft I could wear it all day, every day!  The shorts are from my last post about Cinnamon Girls Sale, again so comfy!  And flats, well, who doesn’t love flats? Actually I’d rather walk around barefoot, like a native, imua! (I kid, I kid…I don’t like walking around barefoot at all, unless it’s sand, but even then I’m kind of sketch about it)

Shirt: Kische – Nordstrom Rack (clearance!)    Shorts: Cinnamon Girl   Shoes:  Abound – Nordstrom Rack (Clearance!)

PG Brain and Cake Pop MADNESS!

My PG brain is getting worse…I mixed up dates and I forgot to show up at my best friends brothers birthday extravaganza! Super bummers because I haven’t seen her in almost a month. I also forgot that I had a doctor’s appointment again today. I must be going a little nuts too because I’m really starting to get into all this pretend play with my niece.  Today, like usual she had me playing beauty shop with her, now that I think about it, maybe I’m just into it because I haven’t been to one in about 6 months.  It also takes me much longer to function in the mornings…actually, it takes me longer to function all day.

Remember I talked about making 200 something cakepops  for a friends wedding and didn’t know how to make the color burgundy?  Well, turns out that I don’t need to know how to make burgundy because she wanted white, so that piece of information is getting stored in the part of my brain that houses useless information, yea that’s my whole brain.

Anyway, I started the long process yesterday with baking the cakes and what did I do? Burn the bottoms. YES! I love complications, makes my brain work harder, I said NEVER!  Thank goodness most of the cake was salvageable and hopefully I won’t have to bake an additional cake.  I decided to split the process up over 7 days because my PG brain just cannot handle all of this thinking.  2 cakes, lunch, 3 naps, and a massage later I have 100 cakeballs ready for dipping.  Tomorrow I conquer the remaining 200.  Thank goodness for donuts and soda ( yea sue me, I am still drinking soda, don’t judge me).

OH YEA! And guess what? we’re HALFWAY THROUGH! We made 20 weeks on Saturday and per today’s visit, baby is up past my belly button and I’ve gained a whopping 9 lbs. total? I think, really don’t trust my math at this point. (119 down to 116 up to 122 and now 128)  I may even forget how far along I am at this point.

Love Hate, Awesome New Side Effects, and Happy 4th of July

As if it weren’t bad enough being bloated, constipated, and nauseated, my allergies have my nostrils stuffed rendering me a mouth breather for the rest of the pregnancy. Which is not all bad, considering I have super-sonic smell-o-vision on the rare occasion I can breathe through my nose.  Awesome.  In addition I have also added pregnancy gingivitis and back pain to my list of side effects.  What does this all mean?! It means I’m having a typical pregnancy. Fabtastic.

I went in for my monthly OB visit on Monday.  At first I didn’t like my doctor but I think he’s growing on me.  While sitting in the waiting area with the Fiance, phone glued in hand, I browsed through Honolulu Magazine’s, Best Doctor’s of 2012 issue.  Come to find out, my doctor was voted as one of the best in Honolulu. Dope. Once we were in the exam room, waiting for the doc, my fiance tells me that I should be fatter and gaining more weight.  Wait, hold on, say whaaaatttt? Honey, I love you, but shut up. While I am not as big as I thought I would be around now, I am definitely NOT complaining. Let me paint the picture, Pre-pregnancy I was 119, after the first couple months I was 115 (thanks to my good friend nausea), I am now 122. My Fiance thought I should be like 130! Bitch PLEASE! Brought this up with doc, he sided with me, and now, well, I love my doctor.

4th of July is awesome in Hawai’i.  4th of July WAS awesome in Hawai’i, until all novelty fireworks were banned in O’ahu last year.  Bummers.  I PROMISE YOU, you have not experienced 4th of July, Chinese New Year, or New Years Eve until you have experienced it in Hawai’i.  Not to fret, you still can if you visit Maui, Big Island, or Kaua’i, apparently they can still pop fireworks, just not us folks on O’ahu. Super bummers.  So, now that we can’t light things on fire and watch them blow up, what do we do?  Most people head to the beach and watch the firework shows off the shores of O’ahu.  Boring, considering that you can do that every friday, weather permitting. However! If you still want to watch some fireworks here are a list of shows happening around O’ahu.
