Brain Dump

It's Wednesday and usually I would link up with Life After I "Dew" for a So What! Wednesday but instead I'm going to indulge you all with a pregnant gal's brain dump!

  • James and I have picked out one girl name and one boy name and I'm so friggin' pump, I can't stand it. I just need the first week of June to come so I can share with the world what our baby's sex is and what his/her name will be.
  • I went to the dr. yesterday for my 2nd appointment and I'm pretty impressed that I've only gained 6 pounds in 14 weeks. I was sure the dr. was going to say something about it because I feel like I look like I've gained a ton but I guess not. But I've told myself to start making better decisions when it comes to meals. I mean, seriously, no one should EVER have spaghetti 6 times in 7 days. I should be ashamed of myself but I'm not. All I can think about it how when James goes out of town this weekend, I may have spaghetti for dinner both nights. PS - I also think it's strange that only when you are pregnant it's okay to share and talk about how much weight you've gained.
  • We are going to go on a babymoon the first week of July. I would love to go on a cruise but James is worried that I might need medical attention and it could be hard to come by in the middle of the ocean.
  • I am sponsoring First Name Smith in May, June and July and I'm so geeked about it. I love Kristen's blog - her words of wisdom, the number of times she drops a big ol' F-bomb here and there and her dislike of Miley. I can't stand her either. Bitch drives me nuts.
  • I've compiled a to-do list for things I want to work on around the house before Petite arrives and let me tell you, if my ass doesn't get to work like yesterday, it's never going to get done. Note to self: start tonight.
So I'm wondering, what was your weight gain like in the first trimester? Where did you and the Mister go on a babymoon to? What kind of task should I add to my to-do list? I need to make sure we are prepared!!


  1. You make me laugh and again I am SO happy for you guys!!! Go to Florida and lay on the beach all day.....just sayin

  2. We went on a cruise and had a wonderful time when I was pregnant, unless you're having a high risk pregnancy, don't sweat it!

  3. Cruises are way fun! You should definitely take time to enjoy the babymoon! Its all downhill after that (kidding... kinda)

  4. I don't think I gained much during my first trimester but that was b/c I was always so nauseous! I did gain 37 pounds overall so I made up for it later! We didn't get to take a babymoon so I'm very jealous!

  5. I gained all my weight at the very end. It was terrible! It was summer in Tennessee and blazing hot...I swear I was as swollen as an elephant!

    I've never been on a cruise, but definitely go somewhere you can relax!
