Tunes

Last night while I watched Canada's Next Top Model, the baby was moving like crazy so I decided that I would give it his first taste of music. Yep, I put the ole headphones right on my belly. Can anyone guess what the little one's first song that he ever listened to was?? He responded by doing a backflip I think. Pretty cool.

Finally

Week 29. So far so good. The baby is growing and performing quite the acrobats - I would be surprised if it isn't going to be break dancing straight out of the womb. It's so neat now because you can actually see my stomache moving when he hoofs me. Scott really gets a kick out of being able to see it move and also being able to feel just how strong our baby already is. As far as pregnancy goes - I can definitely see why people just can't wait for it to be over though. I am finding it quite amusing how people love to comment on how I should enjoy my time now when I can still sleep cuz ya know when the baby comes.... all of that infinite wisdom. And the funny part is that some of these people who say these things don't even have children yet. Yeah thanks for the advise dumb ass, we illiterate people know nothing about babies. And do they think that sleeping now is really that great. Let me tell you the sleep issues have started already - probably to start to prepare you for what's ahead. Sore hips, jabs from the baby, back pain, heartburn.... none of these add up to a great nights sleep anymore - so if one more person tells me that I should enjoy sleeping right now I am going to go Rambo on their ass.

Anywhoooo.... on with the pics.

Hello awkward arms. This was one of the better ones where I wasn't yelling at Scott.

Self portrait yesterday.... looks huge close up doesn't it?








And the straight on shot. It looks crooked. And my belly button hasn't popped yet. I don't think it will. I have the deepest belly button ever and judging by the finger depth test, it still will stay an innie for awhile yet.

Happy hump day!

And...

Oh and I'll post more fat pics tomorrow. Ahahaha. Scott hates it when I say that I'm fat - which makes it funny to me. 29 weeks...... soon to come. This kid is growing that's for sure.

Sucker toes

So after all of the whining and complaining in Fridays post, I actually had a good weekend. Friday night was rough but started to shape up when my knight in shining armor took me for icecream to cheer me up! It worked.
Saturday we went to Winnipeg for the day. We had a leisurely drive in and then had a nice dinner date. Then I got to shop for some new duds. I actually found some preggo clothing that was cute.
These:


And this:


And this:



I also stocked up a bit on some summer chick lit reading. I can't seem to concentrate lately on anything that requires too much thought.
Yesterday was so beautiful that we took advantage of it and did a whole pile of yard work. Scott helped me with my flower beds, and basically did everything and more that I wanted to get done. I'm so lucky to have such a great hubby!

Funny pic

I think I just found the funniest picture from our wedding...


Uh... yeah.

Feeling sorry for myself

UGH. I am in a major bad mood today. I am bored with my life. The weather we have been having has kept me cooped up inside, where I am sick of cleaning and organizing. And being pregnant limits the things that I can do when the weather starts to cooperate and I'm finally able to go outside again. For instance - the yard is in major need of spraying for dandelions. Did you know that 24D ( the chemical used to spray the nasty critters) causes birth defects? So not the job for me and Pedro. And then I have a flower bed I want to dig and some vines I want to dig out. But oh yeah, I can't do that either. So basically even when it does warm up I just have to sit and watch Scott work. I AM SO BORED. I don't like sitting jobs. And I am sick of watching t.v. and hanging out inside by myself doing nothing.

So I was thinking about just heading into Winnipeg tomorrow to go to a few maternity places - basically one actually and just getting away in general. I hear that we might have snow and I can't deal with that right now. So I talk to Scott and then we have to analyze whether going to Winnipeg for a day to one maternity store is really worth it - should we just stay home and get some stuff done, which equals more of me watching Scott work. I understand that he has enough to keep himself busy with until hell freezes over but I am so bored.

UGH. I'm driving myself crazy. So the question is what do I do this weekend? Retail therapy would sure feel good right about now....

Weekend in pics ( and some writing too)

How did everyone love the wonderful weather we had all weekend? We had our favorite guests from Regina for most of the long weekend and despite the crappy weather, we had a great time. It was nice to visit and catch up. Their kids are adorable and well behaved and Scott and I both thoroughly enjoyed imagining what our lives will be like in a few years.

For the most part we got hooked on Need for Speed on Playstation 2 but when the sun actually broke through on Saturday afternoon we took advantage and barbequed some awesome tenderloin steaks, had a bonfire, toasted marshmallows and even set off some fireworks later in the evening. It was a nice break from being cooped up inside the rest of the weekend.











Fire surfing....
Good times. The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, resting and playing more Need for Speed. We're kind of hooked right now.

Happy, happy, joy, joy

It's Friday, la de da. It's Friday blah, de dah. tra la la laaaa


Okay now that I've got that out of my system. It has been a long week. I ended up taking yesterday afternoon off to get some last minute things done before the weekend but when I got home I made the mistake of lying down on the couch for a few minutes and that was it. I slept pretty much all afternoon.


We've been getting ready for our visitors this weekend. Joe and Kyla are coming from Regina.
I can't wait... although I will have to be uncharacteristically sober this time.


Happy Friday to everyone!!!

27 Weeks

Drum roll please....





I don't know why we take these pictures first thing Monday morning. Definitely not my happiest of times. Plus I always look tired!! Pedro is moving like crazy now and packing a little more punch too.

We had an excellent but tiring weekend. The garage sale went well. And yesterday was spent racing around visiting the mothers. I told Scott that next year I'm spending my mother's day at home relaxing! My mom had done up a basket for the future mommy full of necessities for when baby gets here - so sweet of her.




The picture was taken after I rummaged through it all - it looked better when she gave it to me.

Randomness


Don't I look like a bitch in this pic. I thought it was funny so I'm posting it.

So things have been busy this week. We finally got our flooring installed in the hallway and bathroom. It looks awesome and I am FINALLY happy about it.








I need to put something at the end of this hall, but I don't really want something that I will continually knock over... any ideas?


We're getting ready for our garage sale on Saturday. So if anyone happens to be in Killarney please come buy our shit!
In other news, the baby seems to be doing fine as he is constantly shaking his shit around in there! I have my next doctors appointment next Wednesday where I am sure that my doc will be shocked as to how much I have grown. I'll also be doing the glucose test, which apparently involves drinking this really gross shit and then having blood drawn. Nothing else I'd rather do at 8:30 in the morning. After our garage sale I hope to get going on the nursery and also get my butt in gear on the baby quilt that I thought was such a wonderful idea to make. Once I get them done I'll post pics.

I have so many problems I don't know where to start

Has anyone ever thought about how many squares of toilet paper you use when you go to the bathroom?? Scott and I were having this conversation the other night and since then I have become obsessed with counting them when I go to the washroom. He has me thinking that I am a serious over user of the t.p. - granted that he only uses t.p. half the time as opposed to every visit like those of us of the finer sex.

Just something to ponder.

On another note but similar psycho tendency subject - I have come to the decision that I am anal. I get super anxious when I have things that need done. We have sooooo many projects around the house and yard that need done that I get overwhelmed. Add that to the fact that I can't do all of the things I used to because of the pregnancy and that makes for a very uptight Meg and a very weary Scott. I just can't be patient - everything must be done today. Or at least within the week. Probably not a great thing that we bought a fixer upper house and a yard that is in serious need of a weedwhacker. I would ideally love to live in magazine land where everything is pretty all of the time, organized, and glossy clean. These tendencies not only drive me nuts quite often but also put extra strain on our marriage some days. So the question of the day is how do you relax?? Please no booze comments cuz that's just not playing fair!

25 Weeks



I apologize for the shaggy hair. Not sure what happened this morning but man is it unruly today. I kind of like my belly right now. It definitely looks like a baby belly now but it is not so big that it is really uncomfortable yet. It just scares me to wonder how big it will get in the next 15 weeks that I have left. Yikes. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that the stretch marks stay far, far away.
