Feeling Bleh

This baby and I do NOT agree on food.  Here's a rundown of what he/she does not like:  pizza, mcdonalds (i really don't either), salad, mexican food, hamburger meat.

Carlos did okay with sushi on Saturday and we've enjoyed a steak and sweet baked potato with no problems.

I'm so tired of eating TUMS............

Weekend Wrap Up

I've noticed lately that I can't remember simple words.  I know what I want to say, but I can't remember the word I want to use...so frustrating.

The constant baseball schedule coupled with pregnancy has me exhausted.  The weekends are no longer for catching up around the house, laundry, cleaning, organizing...wait, I don't do that stuff.  Honestly, it's no longer resting and feeling like I have a weekend, instead it's baseball, baseball and more baseball.  Quite frankly, had I anticipated this kind of schedule, I would have given it a second thought.  Too late now?  So, D had a tournament this past weekend.  It was their dad's weekend.  I decided to bow out and give their dad the details and cross my fingers that he would show up.  When this has happened in the past, D stays with my sister & brother in law (also coach of the team).  Lo & behold, his dad never showed up.  Dennis and I spent the day together, had lunch, went to Babies R Us, looked at a discount furniture store for a dresser for the baby.  Really spent some bonding time together.  It was great, but I felt terrible for not being at the baseball field.  D stayed the night Sat. night too (they had early games) and I picked him up as soon as he got back yesterday.  So much for time away from the baseball fields.

So....back to Babies R Us.  To sum up this experience, hilarious would be an understatement.  Den has my kids, but when he got us, Rylan was 4, hardly an infant.  This is all new to him.  We look at pack n' plays, I suggest one that has a place for a newborn so we can use this beside our bed if need be.  Moving on to strollers, he's shocked at the $200 minimum price tag.  He wonders why we can't use the $20 umbrella stroller.  I tell him we can hold off on high chairs for a while.  We mosey around, I think mostly he was in shock.  When we get to the baby beds, he said, "we already looked at beds".  Me, "no honey, that was a pack n play, those are more for naps, they have a cardboard bottom, the beds have real mattresses".  Next we move to bottles.  For some reason, this is a real issue for me.  I've always used playtex bottles with the drop-ins.  However, this time around, I see the expense associated with the constant need of more drop ins. I like the sanitary part of it and minimal washing, but the expense....?  On our way to the bottles, we pass the formula.  I mention that I might "pump" but I'm not sure.  After seeing the price tag on the formula, he is insistent that I should produce enough milk to feed the baby.  Pumps...the good ones....$300!  My poor hubby love was in sticker shock.  That was enough for one day.

Prego Pains

The last few weeks I've been dealing with extreme indigestion.  It doesn't matter what I eat, I get it. TUMS are my friend right now.  I have a big ole bottle in my purse.

I've also been having hip pains when I lay down at night.  I have to put a small pillow under my hips to keep them from hurting.

This week, I've noticed my feet are swelling, or maybe my shoes are shrinking.  When I got home last night, those strappy shoes I wore all day had left permanent imprints on my feet.  Luckily, I have the greatest husband ever who gave me an awesome foot rub to help relieve the pain. 

The temps have dropped and I am so grateful.  I slept like a baby last night...first time in a long time.  Ahhhh, how I love my sleep

Pink - Pink Everywhere

Subconsciously, I think if I surround myself with pink, maybe I have a better chance of having a girl!  Ha.  Yes, I'm aware of how absurd that sounds.  11 days until the sonogram. 

M had a baseball tournament in Waco last weekend.  Luckily, the weather was bearable and the seating covered.  This weekend....notsomuch.  It's back in the 100's. 

I've been collecting tons of recipes via pinterest (new obsession) and elsewhere.  I LOVE crock pot cooking during the fall.  For some reason, most of my crockpot recipes seem like cool/cold weather food.  I need to organize them all so I can actually get back to meal planning.  With our weekends so busy with ball, I haven't really gone to the store for "meals", I just buy things that I know I can throw something together. 

Countdown to the 26th

I had a dr. appointment yesterday. Initially, I was struck with fear on dr. days but I'm passed that now and excited to hear my little thump, thump. Den had to go out of town so the first "real" appointment...the one that makes you realize there IS a baby growing in there...he missed. I was kinda bummed and I'm sure he was too, but there are more to come. The big one is to come. September 26th. We will find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I cannot wait. I did a little shopping with my mom over the weekend and as soon as I find out...I'm stocking up on summer clothing. JCP had clothes for $1.97 up to $4.97--cute stuff!
