Puts a smile on my face :-)

A few days ago this closet was full of stuff.  Now the stuff is in Rubbermaid containers, ready for storage.  I love getting ready for baby!

Can this be called a pregnancy craving?

I simply HAD to have a McChicken when I was shopping at Wal Mart yesterday.  I haven't had one in years!  Normally I would order just about anything else on the menu.  I DEVOURED it!  In my car!!  I couldn't even wait to drive the 3 minutes home.

Merry Christmas!

I'm off to my sister's in a few hours.  I'll be there until after we finish shopping on the 26th.  I'll be 20 weeks on Monday...HALF WAY!!  This would feel more real if I could feel regular movement.  I distinctly felt something last Weds. when I was at the Chiropracter, laying on the table.  But since then, I'm not sure I've felt anything.  It's frustrating, but I guess I need to be patient.

I hope you all have a really great holiday!!

I'm having a...

I find out on Saturday!

The last day of school for the year is Friday.  Thank GOODNESS!  Then, to add even more excitement, I have my next ultrasound on Sat.  My sister is coming with me, which is nice, since I'm usually alone.  My friend, K, has also volunteered to come.  I can't believe I'm nearly half way through this pregnancy!  I feel so unprepared.

One of the other teachers today let me know that she overheard some students talking about my pregnancy.  How the hell did they find out so soon!!??  It turns out, some of them are 'Facebook friends' with a teacher who no longer works at my school.  So when she 'liked' my status about being preggers, it must have showed up in the kids' newsfeed or something.  Oh well, if I'm going to be open about my life on FB, it's to be expected.  But really, who the hell says 'yes' when students want to be FB friends???

Thanks to Tiara!

The lovely Tiara has given me my first blog award!  It's called the 'Cherry on Top' award.  I'm supposed to pass it along to five other bloggers, but I'm pretty sure it's made the rounds of the choice mom community, so I'll just enjoy it here.

Isn't it cute?

I'm behind

I haven't posted in a while, and now I'm behind on things I wanted to post.  First of all, my heart goes out to Paige.  We were only about 20 days apart, so I felt a special 'internet stranger' kinship with her.  Life is so unfair sometimes.  A few weeks ago some other choice mom bloggers received bad news as well.

I think I may need to distance myself from so much blog reading.  I know it's reality, but so much bad news really gets to me.  I'm so paranoid about this pregnancy.  Everything has just been too easy.

But then I think, "you can't live in fear, you need to enjoy this time and not worry so much.  There will be plenty to worry about as a mother!"

After waiting 17 weeks I finally told the admin at my school.  Then when I got home, I let the cat out of the bag on Facebook.  The response has been overwhelming!  Everyone is so happy!  It's truly amazing how fast news spreads.  My cousin's wife phoned my aunt right away, who phoned me for the story, who phoned my other aunt, who also phoned me right away.  So much LOVE!

One of my co-workers phoned and said, "your status says you're expecting.  Does that means, as in, 'expecting a package'???"  Um, no, I explained to her, didn't she see my profile picture?  I changed it to an ultrasound photo.  She was just so shocked that she didn't even notice the picture!  So cute!

Only one comment has asked about 'who the guy is'.  I love keeping people guessing!
