33 Weeks: What I Lost

Happy Halloween!

The above is my (happy) Jack-o-latern.  I always carve a happy one, but this year I made sure to, as to not scare Kauffman even more.  

Dan carved Margaret's most likely real name into his pumpkin, so I can't show it here.  But, if you want to know, you can just stop by and trick-or-treat at our house. :)

Pregnancy Update

The past few weeks I have lost quite a few things:

- Sleep.  Tons of it.  Dan and I have finally set up shop in the living room because the couch is the only place that I can sleep and support my belly at the same time.  Dan loves the piles of pillows and blankets on the floor.  He says it feels like camping.

-My breath.  My lung capacity is shrinking by the minute.  If I sit in the wrong position I find myself struggling to breathe.  I tried to paint my toenails last weekend and every time I bent down to paint one I had to suck in a huge breath, like I was going under water.  

- Bladder control.  No sneeze is safe.

- Flexibility.  Dan caught the below picture as I was trying to bend back and almost fell over.

- It.  Yep, I have lost it, mentally speaking.  I start start crying at almost anything and I cannot calm myself down.  I know I have said this before, but I get so frustrated with myself, because usually I am so even tempered. The following have led to a full on melt-down:

  • Planning my dad's birthday party
  • Not having the energy to play with Kauffman
  • Regretting not playing with Kauffman enough the day after he leaves
  • Finding some lost dogs on the street
  • Losing a file at work (I solved that one with Halloween candy)
  • Dan bringing home a car full of junk

-Self control.  Mainly on Halloween candy.  At the rate I am going we might have to hand out pennies instead.

Other updates:

- Dan is starting to think everything I do is hilarious.  Sitting on the stool to get ready in the morning.  Grunting as I get up from the couch.  Eating too much Halloween candy.  He says he loves that I am finally showing some vulnerability, whatever that is supposed to mean.  He has received some advice from some wonderful women and I am reaping the benefits - foot rubs, back rubs, ice water delivery, dinner, etc.  He is doing a great job.

(He is pouting in the above picture because he doesn't want to show his belly.  hehe)

- We get to tour the hospital this weekend.  I am so glad I will finally have the setting correct in my nightmares about the delivery.  Ha!


Breakfast and lunch were leftovers, but I did make something for dinner - buffalo chicken pizza.

I topped a Trader Joe's pizza crust with a sauce of hot sauce and blue cheese salad dressing.  I added shredded chicken (that I boiled for about 15 minutes), a bell pepper sliced, and 1/4 onion sliced.  I topped it all with a little cilantro and cheddar cheese.  It was delish.  

Thought for the day

Question for the day

What is your favorite thing about Halloween?  I love handing out candy - I can't wait to see all the costumes.
