The past two weeks have been my…
…First time sick and pregnant. Not fun, not fun at all. I sounded like a congested chain smoker for about two weeks. I kept Kleenex out of bankruptcy. I drooled at the forbidden ibuprofen sitting in our medicine cabinet. I sucked on cough drops like they were lifesavers (they were, actually). I also have the best, sweetest husband in the world.
…First big baby purchase. No, we did not purchase a fat baby, we found a car seat on craigslist for a fraction of the cost new. Did you know that car seats have expiration dates? Apparently they get moldy or smelly or something after a few years, but thankfully I knew this ahead of time…so for all you concerned parents out there, I did make sure it was legit. If it is possible to anthropomorphize a website, I am stalking craigslist these days for other such sweet Southern California steals.
…First braxton hicks contraction. I’ve actually wondered for about a week if I was getting them occasionally, but today I had one that was unmistakable. It was kind of fun, bizarrely enough. I know, I know, I will look back on that statement in a few months and laugh. But right now they remind me that baby is in there.
