Wordful Wednesday – Shrimpie

To see more Wordful Wednesday entries, check out Angie’s Blog…

So, I’ve been MIA again for awhile. I have a good excuse, I promise! Actually, I have a whole list of excuses that have been halting me from blogging and just from doing whatever…This list was created about 3 weeks ago on a piece of paper. I’m better for the most part, but here are my excuses in no particular order (some maybe TMI, but…oh wells):

  • So tired and sleepy.
  • Don’t feel like doing anything except laying/lounging on the couch.
  • Always hungry, but can’t always eat because I’m not tasting for anything/nothing tastes good.
  • Everything leaves a weird taste/aftertaste – even water.
  • I get heartburn w/everything.
  • Crazy bout of flatulence/”blocked” bowels…OH JOY! (told you some stuff was TMI)…
  • Always nauseous/gagging…some things that make me gag:
    • drinking water
    • smelling food cooking (frying, rice cooking, anything)
    • tomato sauce…yes, spaghetti was a once a week dinner at our house, but not anymore
    • smelling cigarettes/smoke
    • smelling our dish detergent (we don’t have a dishwasher so I haven’t been able to wash dishes…poor pDaddy.)
    • taking a shower
    • brushing my teeth

    So what, prey tell, had me in this bad of shape from Mid-January to early March (and even a little now)? If you haven’t been able to deduce what was causing all that, I present to you, Shrimpie:

    Shrimpie @ 12w3d

    shrimpie 12w3d

    That was taken on Friday, 03.12.2010 when Shrimpie was 12weeks and 3days. At this point, we are at 13weeks and 1 day. We are due on 09.21.2010. Another September baby just like Razz πŸ™‚ Beans and Razz are ecstatic and already rub my protruding belly saying “Hi Shrimpie” and “I love you Shrimpie”.

    I’m feeling better than that list above (which I created on 02.24.10(and yes, my name is Stephanie, nice to meet ya!). That list was how I was feeling from 6-10/11 weeks. I’m not over all of those things yet – I still gag when brushing my teeth, taking a shower and just at random times. I still can’t wash the dishes and I haven’t been able to bathe the girls b/c that makes me gag too. Poor pDaddy has really had to step up his game and he has. I couldn’t even help him shovel all that crazy snow from February’s storms. Anyway, I am better even though I still don’t like the smell of certain things, but at least I can drink water now and am not as exhausted – I’ll take what I can get!

    In other news – we finally get to leave for Disney tomorrow. We were supposed to go in the middle of February, but our flight got cancelled due to one (of many) snowstorms. I was acting upset about that, but was deep down relieved. Can you imagine me at that time going to Disney? I would have been miserable at the “happiest place on earth”! Anyway, I hope I don’t get sick on the plane and can handle all the walking. Though I haven’t gained too much weight as reflected on the scale, I’m already showing. I look like I’m about 6 months instead of 3 months pregnant…

    Here’s to a long hot summer and a happy, healthy baby come September πŸ™‚

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ Yes, Disney bound tomorrow! I hope I don’t get sick on the plane and can keep up w/all the walking…

      Anywho, this will leave me very prego come July so another BlogHer conference that I’m not going to be at. I really was considering this year b/c of your encouragement and it’s so close to home, but…I don’t think I can handle NYC in the middle of summer and I’ll be waddling everywhere not able to keep up w/everyone and everything! I thought about still going anyway to attend the conferences and meet whomever I could that wouldn’t mind my waddling, but then, I heard it was sold out. So, guess it wasn’t really meant to be yet.

  1. Congratulations honey!!! I am so happy for you! Thankfully, getting sick on the plane isn’t a horrible things…most flight attendants are very nice, and Disney will be fantastic to you as well!!

  2. Well, look at you! Growing something are we? Well it is Spring! lol I’m your latest follow. I want to stick around and see what happens. Happy WW & St. Patty’s Day!
