I'm pretty sure my fingernails are actually talons: week 11/12

Well Hello Everyone!

I'm blogging to you from week 11! This little peapod is size of a lime! Woooooooo! He/she is probably having a blast in there, because the amounts i'm having to pee is at an all time high.

Cravings: SUSHI. Don't worry I'm not even thinking about eating it, except all the cooked stuff. I'm still in love with mushrooms this week. I've pretty much put them in everything i've been cooking. Maybe my body is trying to tell me something? I officially like Tomatoes again. I have a love for Salt and vinegar chips. OMG. A little obsessed. Still loving pickles like it's my job.

Aversions: I don't like eating beef or chicken right now, well I can eat chicken in small amounts, but beef is definitely out.

EMOTIONS: I think this category should be here from here on out. I don't know if its the hormones, probably, but I turned on ABC family the other day and The Notebook was on. I was so stoked. I love this movie. I didn't even get through the next five minutes and I was a crying mess. LIKE BIG CROCODILE TEARS. Ridiculous. Oh and for that matter, I think any Nicolas Sparks book is out, someone always dies at the end. I have no idea how I'm going to get through the last Hunger Games movie, Good luck Matt!

For next 6.5 months I want to apologize in advance for random mood swings and lashing out at random people. I nearly lost my shit on this poor defenseless check out person at the grocery store. He clearly didn't know how slow he was going because the cashier was already ringing up items for the next person in line. So I started to help him, by shoving all my shit into bags, he said that he would rather me not do this. HOLD THE HELL UP.  Y'ALL IT TOOK ME EVERYTHING IN MY BEING TO NOT SCREAM AT HIM. If looks could kill that boy would have been dead, TWICE.

Sleep/Dreams: I'm trying to train myself to sleep on my side and not on my stomach or back, It's not working out too well. I have been having crazy dreams that i'm crushing my baby, and realize that I have a cat laying on top of me when I wake up (Lou Kitty likes to lay across me to stay warm, that cat is at least 18 lbs...we will work on that one.)

Preggo thoughts:
  • At this point I'm so tired of keeping this pregnancy a secret!!! I want everyone to know!
  • Fingernails grow so freaking fast. 
  • I have ADD. I cannot focus on anything. Pregnancy brain is real, i've given so many preggos crap about it over the years. I feel that this is major payback. (specifically Tami and Ashleigh, Sorry y'all. 
Week 12!!!

I'm convinced Baby Coates loves doing crunches. I just can't get over there being something in my stomach other than food. I can't wait to feel like this little person kick, just look at those legs! It's so crazy to think this little person is just the size of a plum!

Peapod is saying hello here, and to thank you for coming to the blog. 

Ok so we had a photoshoot this past week to check out tests for Spina Bifida. Let me tell you, sleep before this test was almost non-existent. I still don't know the results, but the office told me no news is good news and it's been almost 7 days. Plus, during this appointment I got to stare at this little blessing. I couldn't believe my eyes, that this little baby was moving all around. There was little cooperation from my child, it almost took an hour and half for a good picture for the NT scan! Looks like I have a strong willed child on my hands, imagine that?!

Cravings: BUFFALO WINGS with no blue cheese dressing, which I love.. I actually have been craving spicy things this week. My baby will come out of the womb asking for salsa, I just know it. Dill pickles, black olives, salt and vinegar chips, PUMPKIN PIE. 

Aversions: NONE. I couldn't believe it. I actually overcame my fear of eating curry last week and thought it was wonderful again, probably because it was so spicy! 

Emotions: Emotions this week have been in more control this week. I read in my baby book that the placenta is more formed this week so the hormone load is supposed to even out. 

Sleep: It has been much better this week. I think i'm now getting the hang of this pillow thing. 

In other news: 
uhhhh.. sorry I forgot a 12 week belly pic... Preggo brain is totally real, y'all. Plus, Thanksgiving was this week. Best week ever. 

Shout outs are in order: so our friends came into town for Thanksgiving and are actually moving back to Texas as we speak, but they pretty much rocked our Thanksgiving this year! 

Tirah cleaned ALOT and pretty much saved the day(s). and Troy smoked our beautiful turkey. Watson the Corgi looked cute and contributed to keeping the cats in line.  Thanksgiving would not have been as awesome this year without you. 

Much love to Tia Tirah and Uncle Billy (not Uncle Touchy, you weirdo) and I am super jealous you moved back to the motherland and neglected to take me with you.
