Preggo's

I think pregnant people are really funny. Seriously, they crack me up. My BFF had her cute little tyke a little over two years ago. She got me edumacated about some of the things that happen when you are preggo. Like pregnant brain. For some reason, your brain goes out the window. And more people than just she has told me this. All of a sudden, you can't remember anything and you drop off midsentence leaving your listeners clueless. You can't ever decide what to eat and sometimes, you just don't know where you are. That makes me really excited to have kids...

Last night, my cousin clued me in on another thing that happens. I already knew it, I mean, my mom was pregnant all through my growing up years. I guess my cousin just reminded me. Pregnant people can't laugh too hard or too much. You hear a lot of "Oh, baby doesn't like that!" and "I gotta go!" or, "My tummy!"

I love it when preggo's say that "baby" wants this or that. "Baby is cold. It needs a blanket " or "Baby is tired. We have to go to bed." Sure blame it on the little shrimp inside you. I can't wait till I have that excuse: "I think the baby needs more cookies, and homemade ice cream... and more cereal" Pass it down!

I just figured it out, my mom was preggo for four and a half years starting from the time I was six. Of course there were a few breaks in there, but four and a half years. So I guess I know a lot of things about pregnancy. Like when your water breaks, you have time to take a shower and do your hair and put on make up before you have to go to the hospital. And everybody gets to go to Chuck-a-rama after they come and visit you and the babes. And you don't have to do the vacuuming for at least six weeks. And sometimes, if you have a mineral deficiency, you want to eat dirt. Mmm. Dirt.

I really, really can't wait for that.

It's scary how this post reflects our conversation of about 4 hours ago. . .

unm i think this one is my favorite post thus far. i cant wait to be pregnant and be able to do all of those things. hahah except eating dirt- thats a little gross. but who knows- maybe it will sound more appealing whent the time comes.

What?!?! I didn't get a vacuuming break and nobody got Chuck-a-rama. I want a redo. Okay seriously not really!

Haha, you're hilarious! I have not used the "baby wants" excuse enough this pregnancy. I have at least a few more days though- I am so making up for it! Chuck-a-rama? Really? Hmm...

The little shrimp is actually a parasite. Or a gremlin as Greg called it. Oh you crack me up you little silly. As to Kate's redo... to late. She has 2 freakin' cute kids!
