I just love it.
Speaking of being pregnant..........I've started feeling the baby move! It's just the best. Especially since I haven't really felt pregnant. I've barely been sick. (Please don't hate me.) And while I definitely look pregnant, I haven't gained much weight. (Again, don't hate me.) It was the same with Spiderman and the Hulk, though I was a bit sicker with them than this one. My body just handles pregnancy well, I guess. I almost wanted to be sicker this time because "they" say you're sicker with girls.
My ultrasound was scheduled for this next Monday, but a couple of days ago I got a call from my doctor's office, saying that the ultrasound tech had a family emergency come up and wasn't going to be in the office all week. Could they push back the appointment?
Well, what could I say? No? So now I'm waiting an extra week. And I'm trying really hard not to be bitter about it. It just gives you more time to guess if it's a boy or a girl!
Some helpful hints:
- I craved fruit the entire first trimester
- Hardly sick
- Healthier skin
- Carried low with both boys, but I think it's too early to tell if I'm carrying high this time. But I've been visibly pregnant for over a month.
- Spiderman and the Hulk talk about having a baby sister all the time, and I have been very careful not to mention gender on my own.
The sun is shining today. We've officially entered fall, and sunshine makes all the difference. Cloudy and 55 is much colder than sunshine and 55. And the sun is shining today. Makes me very happy.
I'm still going to make soup for dinner tonight, though. A friend and I got together this week and did some dinner/freezer prep. I have the makings for homemade chicken noodle soup sitting in my freezer. And it lasts such a long time that I might not have to cook till Sunday dinner. Especially since Superman's not the biggest fan of homemade noodles. (He may be a zombie expert, but he's just about the pickiest eater ever.) But he gets free lunches on Friday at work, so he won't be too hungry tonight.
It's a fool proof plan, really.
gLee is rockin' my face off. Does anyone else find themselves singing along without realizing it? Last week's episode with Kristin Chenowith was fantastic. I loved the version of "Alone" she did. (I even found a version of "Witchy Woman" she sang for my halloween playlist. HIghly appropriate, no?!) I tried to make a playlist with gLee music, but it's not possible. I guess they're only doing it on iTunes for the time being. (I'm just thisclose to breaking down and getting an iTunes account because of it.) But I was able to find videos on playlist.com. I got quite a few video clips of the songs. I put the playlist at the bottom of my blog, but for someone reason, only one video ever transfers with the code. "Don't Stop Believin'" is all I can get. We've listened to that song so much that Spiderman sings along.
It's actually really cute. He'll sing, "Don't stop believing! / On and on and on and on and on / Follow the prophet / Follow the prophet / Follow the prophet / Don't go away / On and on and on and on!"
The boy loves to sing, we just need to work on keeping the song straight.
Have you heard "Say Hey!" by Michael Franti? I sang that song really loudly in the car one day and now it's our theme song and Spiderman and I sing it back and forth all day long.
He knows all the chorus and will just start singing the "I love you" part at random times during the day. Or "Hey mama! Hey mama!" It cracks me up and I love it. I wish I could record it. I probably could on my phone....I'll have to do that.
Alright. This post is much more random and rambly than my usual Friday posts. But for some reason it's been a long time since I've done random Friday post and I'm a bit out of practice. I'm not gonna list 10 random tunes because I've already talked about music and I don't have any new music to share. If you really want to see what's on my playlist, it's right up there. Be sure to click the "random" button -- I think it's the twisty arrows one. Kinda breaking Motherboard's rules, but I think she's okay with that.
Have a marvy weekend! Enjoy fall wherever you are!!
