Not much new going on here. I’m 23 weeks into this thing and anxious to meet the baby. I guess it would be nice if he was fully developed and we finished his nursery first, but you know what I mean. I would love to say hello.
The sudden painful hunger is pretty much the main struggle of pregnancy at this point. I’ve thought it would be nice to be hungry all the time. Wrong. It’s kind of a bummer to have to think of things to eat every hour AND not have the time to prepare them. It gets expensive going out all the time, but sometimes it’s the only way.
I feel like weight is always part of the pregnant discussion, and I kind of hate it. I was loving my hot pre-pregnancy body. I look back at pictures of myself with a waist and shake my head at how I didn’t really appreciate it.
But I really love my pregnant body, too. It’s freaking adorable. This is why it’s not a great compliment to me to say “you don’t even look pregnant.” No. I do. I get that people exist who look like me who aren’t pregnant and just carry weirdly firm stomach chub but aren’t otherwise fat. They’re out there, but here’s the thing: THEY look pregnant. Not the other way around.
Meh. Anyway, I’m in the mood for more advice. Today’s topic: baby registry items. I’ve started a registry on Amazon and Target which are easily findable if you know my name, but I admit I don’t really know what I’m doing. What registry advice to you have? What baby products do you love?
