But it's just browsing!

I've been browsing cribs..and bedding..and car seats..and maternity clothes. Orion's all "it's WAY too early for maternity clothes, babe" and "you can't go around picking out bedding when we don't even know the sex of the baby"..sure I can! A set for a boy..and a set for a girl. Ya know..have my bases covered. Look, I'm excited and if I want to browse products..I can. Things have gotten way cuter in the 2 years I haven't been pregnant!

He was a little upset that I'd told my blog..and Myspace..and Facebook already. I can't help it. I'm not one of those girls that can keep it in..hold a secret like that. When I find out..I tell everyone. And I know I probably shouldn't..I should wait until the coast is clear or whatever..but seriously, when it comes to babies..when is the coast ever clear? It's not. So I celebrate and I browse.

My goal though, is to gain as little weight as possible. Continue working out (non-strenuous because I totally fell on my belly while attempting push ups yesterday and it scared the bejeebus out of me like whoah) and eating as healthily as I already am and maybe even more so and this time...this time I'll take my prenatals EVERY DAY! I already have a big box of em..and this time they're the kind you only take 1 of a day instead of 4 (which is why I rarely ever did..but bad excuse. There are always other options.)! So.

Calix bought a huge shark kite yesterday and wants to go to the park to fly it. I'm way tired..but I'm trying. Trying to get my act together and at least dressed so little man can go have fun. It's supposed to be windy today..perfect kite skies!

Now, Orion..come rub my back and my hips because dude...dude.

I was totally the same way! I immediately started looking at bedding and furniture, and I told everyone as soon as we found out. Hey, it's a girl thing. Our hubbies don't have to understand it. They just have to put up with it!

Other than being tired, how are you feeling?

I think you're going to do great with your weight gain. Did you breast feed? I weighed myself 2 weeks after I had Corbin and I was below my pre-pregnancy weight. Everyone told me it was because I breast fed. I don't know how that works though?

Other than being tired, my lower back hurts, and I'm nauseous. I've been pretty good about not vomiting with the other vomiting. But I also know every pregnancy is different so who knows.

And I did breastfeed..both boys. Calix not nearly as long as I would have liked because they didn't even let me try till after he came home at 2 1/2 weeks old and I was barely producing anything anyway..and with Maddox, it was until he was 3 months old. I also stopped because I wasn't producing much then, either. I dropped every last ounce I gained with Maddox..and then some..fairly quickly. It's a total breastfeeding perk. All of those nutrients for baby..weight shed for you. Pshh..awesome.

Go walking every day! You'll feel good and you'll probably just lose weight, even though the baby is growing. Did you get a pedometer yet? Go browse for that. Love you.
