Sooo.. I’ve been kind of quiet lately, but as you may know, this last week has been spent on the road, as Marcus and I finally left Hawaii a week ago. I should probably add that the main reason that it’s been a challenge to update the blog is that I actually killed our laptop a few weeks ago. Yes, I’ve kept that to myself. But I’ve come to learn to accept my imperfection and can now face the world and admit what happened.
I spilled my chocolate banana protein shake all over it.
All over it.
It died instantly.
And I felt terrible. And because of pregnancy and hormones going berserk, I cried the rest of the day for it. It wasn’t pretty.
But that’s why. We still have our iPad but Marcus just started his online summer semester a few days ago and so my iPad minutes are limited.
So here I am, typing away late at night on my aunt and uncle’s computer.
So let me fill you in.
Uhm… not much has happened pregnancy’wise. Same symptoms and appetite. I guess there are two major things to report.
1. The baby is kicking! I started feeling… stuff, that wasn’t quite like gas or tummy rumbles, but more like the feeling of a bubble bursting right below your skin. It was pretty fun! I don’t think I would’ve realized if I hadn’t been paying such close attention, desperately hoping to feel something. Even now it’s very little I feel, but it’s definitely baby! I’m just excited for him to get stronger so he can give me a real nudge in the gut!
2. I realized how pregnant I look. After living in two small tiny apartments, virtually not buying any new furniture, it had been a while since I’d seen my full floor-length reflection. So you can imagine what a surprise it was when we walked into our hotel room and I stood face to face with reality. My first thought was that I look like a roman goddess in an old oil painting. Bulging here there and everywhere. Ironically, Marcus said the exact same thing just hours later. In other words… I am fatter than I’ve ever been. And it’s a weird feeling. But I kind of like it!
Sorry for the brief update. I have tons more pictures to throw on here later. So hang in there!
