Just a quick lame prego update

July 29th, 2013 by KellyJoe

So I honestly have nothing to write about in the least. I have spent the last week plus in a pregnant haze where everything is awful and I hate everything and possibly everyone who doesn’t have the exact food I want exactly when I want it or isn’t Benedict Cumberbatch (And only one of you will even get that joke). Seriously I don’t remember being this exhausted with Al but that could possibly be because I didn’t have a toddler demanding my attention and fighting me about naps and refusing to use words that I know he knows. That’s not to say that he’s not a joy, but he is a toddler and they do drain the life from you and convert it into energy for themselves.

So needless to say we haven’t done anything fun especially since Ty was gone for the last week on business (so he says) and I used all my energy trying to not fall asleep on  the couch. My mom did take me in for a while but the silly person I am instead of sleeping as much as I possibly could I stayed out late with friends and partied as a hard as a prego can by which I mean I watched movies and drug main street.

The nice thing about being so damn tired is that I’m not also sick to go with it. That seems to have entirely cleared up except when I look at meat which is the most disgusting thing on the planet right now and can only be eaten on rare occasions. I basically live off a diet of cucumber sandwiches and cottage cheese with a not so healthy heaping of green olives. Seriously if I could have that and chex cereal for every meal I would easily and I wouldn’t ever complain but unfortunately I live with two other people who expect food that isn’t considered a snack so cooking I must do. Honestly, if I didn’t have to eat I wouldn’t because eating feels like a chore and food is gross and I hate everything about it. Except goat cheese which just happens to be the nectar of the Gods but is out of my price range for regular consumption.

I don’t have much else to talk about but I’m going to better this week starting tomorrow or possibly wednesday and I have my doctors appointment on Friday so I’ll definitely have something to talk about as long as some certain someone stays on me about blogging. Seacrest out.

Camping and stuff

July 16th, 2013 by KellyJoe

Well I’m back from camping so I can update now like a PERSON.

We actually got in some sensory play which was cool. We made sidewalk paint from corn starch, water, and food coloring. It was a lot of fun as long as you don’t rub your hands or anything together or really think of how corn starch feels because honestly having that on you is one of the worst feelings EVER. It feels super nasty. To me at least, I don’t know how normal non-pregnant humans feel.


Then he got to meet himself some toad frogs which I don’t think he was sure what to think about them. He seemed to have a hard time deciding how he felt.


We went camping which Al thought was the flys thighs and that makes sense since he got to be a roaming dirt child covered in filth and fish water for a goodly amount of time. There are a ridiculous amount of pictures so I’ll only put up one and send the rest to family later when I FEEL like it.


Then of course when we got home from that and got him all showered and clean he decided to be a toddler and find some pink food coloring while my back was turned and become whatever this is.


Needless to say I was not impressed.

Then there’s just this very impressive picture.


And thats about whats going on with Al. As for me, I haven’t been as sick lately which has been nice and its mostly just at night when I do get sick. Basically all meat is disgusting, especially red, and the Achilles hurt quite consistently. Also I’m a tired grouchy butt who hates people but I’m not sure thats caused by pregnancy for sure cause I’m kind of thinking I was always that way.

Well, thats it for this week. See you next week maybe.

So I haven’t written in here in a while because I’ve been super sick for a good amount of time due to being pregnant again as most of you know so I’m sorry for the delay in things. Currently I’m not feeling sick but I am feeling very tired and very ornery so I plan to make this post more of a picdump to catch up than to actually write. As you can guess I haven’t done a whole lot of sensory play with Al because moving too much made me dry heave which sucks super hardcore. I would much rather puke than dry heave. Anyway.


This is about the only sensory play that was new that we did. It kept him busy for a decent amount of time.


Watched him eat noodles like a champ.



This handsome kid got his first hair cut. It was just a trim in the back so he stopped having a mullet. Mullets are a parents way of telling their kids they don’t love them. Remember that.


For our 5 year anniversary we all went to the aquarium which was super awesome since it wasn’t packed with obnoxious pushy kids. A lot of our pictures from it didn’t come out though since it was ridiculous dark and I was under the impression I couldn’t use flash in most of the area’s.



And since facebook kills the quality of pictures pretty bad I’ll put the announcement ones on here in case anyone wanted to steal them *coughAshleycough*.



I don’t know if the quality is really all that better on here but I would hope so.

Currently I’m 9 weeks 7 days and according to my pregnancy tracker the baby is the size of a green olive-a bunch of which I ate for lunch. I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m actually a week farther along than the doctor thinks based off my last period and how Al always measured really small but whatever whatev’s. I guess we’ll just see what happens when the kid comes out. The last couple days my morning sickness hasn’t really been all that bad and I usually only start feeling sick at night and not to the extreme I was feeling it. Mostly I just feel bone tired all the time but I’m trying to keep up on a good exercise schedule so I don’t gain a ton of weight this time around. My only major craving I’ve had is for garlic (which was the same thing I wanted with Al too) but most food puts me off. I hate the thought of eating or the knowledge that eventually I’m going to have to cook and weirdly its not because I feel sick, its because I JUST DON’T WANT TO. Which I think is fair.

My next appointment isn’t until August 2nd and thats going to be just a normal exam, and then five weeks after that is the gender scan. If you want to start taking bets on what I’m going to have feel free. I plan on doing some gender reveal pictures with Al a lot like I did the announcement pictures.

I’ll try to keep up with the blog better but its currently at the mercy of angry baby bump and this baby is definitely full of anger.
