Week 18: We are not naming our child, Felicia.

Thank you guys so much for all your wonderful thoughts and comments. I really appreciate them all, and it contributes to my sanity, also letting me know i'm really not as crazy as I think I am.

So again, Thank you.

With the upcoming gender reveal, which we should know a gender by  January 14th pending our child cooperates.. We have been looking up names for both genders. We are somewhat traditional when it comes to names because I am one of the those people who thinks a name sets your child up for success.

You really get to know your significant other when coming up with names.. You also figure out which people you really hate. I used to just laugh at this, but it's totally and completely true.

We have laughed our asses off at some names. For example, Matt with a serious face, asked me,        "what about the name Felicia for a girl?".... UH.. NO. I don't want me child to look up any Urban dictionary and see what they have to say about her, #byefelicia


OR 



Needless to say, we're still trying to come up with something... wish us luck, we will not be one of those parents that already have the name picked by the time we know the gender. 

We're definitely better at coming up with pet names. What does that say about us? lol. 

Sorry little peapod, your parents are slackers, unorganized, and slightly neurotic, but at least we care, right?! (and your mother uses way too many commas.)

BUMP PIC! Little peapod decided to do a growth spurt this week for sure, he/she is the size of a mango!





Weird Pregnancy side effects this week: 
  • My nose is super stuffy, and I have random nose bleeds. Boogers. I have a lot of them. PRETTY MUCH ALL THE TIME.I can chalk that up to my blood supply increased quite a bit! Clearly, I need to be upping my drinking H2O game! I have a Neti pot but hate to put stuff up my nose. It's a losing battle, I guess i'll endure those boogers a little while longer.
  • Itching. I have been lathering myself with lotion and I still itch a lot. I will resort to Benadryl at night sometimes. I've really only started to notice it this week. Oh and in my earliest week of pregnancy, my legs itched something fierce, so weird. It was one of the very first symptoms I ever felt. 
  • OH THE FORGETFULNESS. This is quite unfortunate for a newer nurse. Thankfully everyone at work has been super nice to me about it. 
  • I'm COLD all the time. So weird. I've always been super hot natured and now I feel like I can never get warm enough. I slept with socks on the other night, who does that?!
  • I am probably going to carry higher rather than lower in the pregnancy because sometime I feel out of breath walking around, not to the extreme but its something I definitely notice.  
Cravings: Frozen yogurt, with lots of fruit. I craved this for two days, not even Jamba Juice could quell this craving. I also crave roasted garlic. Like the cloves. I went to Fogo de Chao (Brazillian steakhouse) and their salad bar had these roasted garlic cloves and I must have eaten two large spoonfuls. ** no worries, I will not be eating this much garlic everyday ** Why am I so strange? I'm making all things garlic this week.

*** side note: Garlic has so many health benefits. Typically when you have a craving, your body is trying to tell you something, you might be deficient or need more nutrients. Garlic cloves have lots of vitamin C, iron, potassium, fiber, and B vitamins. ***

It's safe to say i'll be having dragon breath this week, sorry Matt it's for the Peapod.

Aversions: Eggs. Tomatoes.

Sleep: is starting to get uncomfortable. I'm sure it's way to early for this.

I cannot wait to know what we are having, I'm ready to bond with names and buy all the fun stuff!
