1. I never use those "toilet seat covers" that are found in women's restroom stalls. I mean IT'S TISSUE PAPER. What will it really protect you from? I think it's a conspiracy.

2. I so completely wish that I had Tammy Taylor's hair. If you do not know who Tammy Taylor is I feel sorry for you.

3. I am starting to get FREAKED OUT thinking about this baby weight I am putting on. I went through a phase in my life were I was worried about my body image, but other than that short time in my life I have never worked to lose or keep weight off. I think that is all about to change. I am BEYOND thankful for this time and amazed at how a body can grow and stretch. But HOLY MAN ALIVE how will the body go back into it's regular place? Is there a button I can push to make it do it?

4. I love how one night my husband can totally get on my nerves and we will fight about something stupid, and then the next day he will make me laugh nonstop and I will want to spend every minute with him. Marriage is fun.

5. I am thankful for authentic friendships. Transparency is a beautiful thing.

6. After my post about our current situation several people commented that my attitude is inspiring. Please know that any peace I am feeling is nothing short of the Holy Spirit working in me. Also, it is a choice. I daily have to make a choice to count my blessings and block out the lies that come from the enemy. Some days I choose not to do it and then I pay the consequences.

7. I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions for awhile, it is such a weird feeling. I also had horrible HORRIBLE gas pains this past week. I've never felt anything like that in my life. I assured my mom that the gas pains I was feeling was way worse than any measly labor pains. She had no comment.

8. I absolutely cannot handle the commercials of parent's surprising their kids with a trip to Disney World. I won't be going on a Disney trip anytime soon but I definitely plan on surprising my kids one day. I just think it will be so fun!!

9. Shopping for nursery furniture is stressful. I know what color I want, but I want to get something that is good quality and will stand the test of time. I think I have read every review on every nursery furniture on the internet.

10. I love the middle name suggestions. Some of them were names that Luke had suggested and now we are taking them seriously. TBA

Oh my gosh -- So you sit directly on the toilet seat?? I personally do the "hover" method unless I um....need to sit down. Then I just put a strip of toilet paper down. Hehehe.

I once went and ate Mexican food and drank several Mexican martinis whilst wearing a sweater belted snuggly around my middle with a big, wide belt + skinny jeans. By the time the check came, I thought I had appendicitis - I was bawling the pain was so bad - I had to have a friend practically drag me to the car and call Evan for me (who was studying for the bar at the time and thought I was just tipsy and being overly dramatic).

We were about to go to the hospital when it happened... the fart/belch combo heard round the world (thank goodness Evan didn't believe me when I said I was dying and chose to stay at the library). Turns out one shouldn't cut off circulation to the digestive tract when gorging on chips and guac and tequila.

All that is to say... GAS CAN HURT REALLY, REALLY BAD! I totally believe you!

Kate said...

Also, I never hover or use the seat protectors. You cannot catch a cold via your bum-cheeks, true fact!

Erin said...

I think you may have opened up a whole can of worms with that toilet seat admission. ;-) The thing that really weirds me out is the automatic plastic sleeve that is sometimes on public toilets. How are we supposed to know they're clean?

Oh, and I totally get you with those Disney commercials. I saw the one where the parents tell the kids they're leaving on a plane that day to go to Disney. How fun!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

It's so weird that you have to put the cover of the seat... therefore basically touching it with your hand.

Blah, my ass wants to chance it. Better my butt than my hands!!

Hope your gas starts feeling better soon. I feel your pain. Not really, but kinda. I had some bad Mexican last week.

(Kidding.)

Katie @ Modern-Day Family said...

those disney commercials get me too! I get all weepy eyed. I made Erik watch them too but of course he wasn't as amused. I think it would be SO much fun to surprise! Those kids are so stinking excited!!

Mrs. Haid said...

I can't believe how bodies can change, either. Most of my stretch marks were on my back hips though, which really surprised me. But really, your uterus becomes like a watermelon, so there has to be extra skin to cover it, right?

I love those Disney things, too.

I stressed about nursery furniture, too. Now I think it was a little waste of time. Your child will probably chew the crib rails, and you'll have to cover them up or just have bite marks. The convertible crib we got is great, but I don't know if it was the most important thing anymore. Also, I found a Pottery Barn-ish chair on Walmart.com - and a year and a half later, it is in great condition. We now wish we had gotten a glider, but at the time thought gliders were for grannies. Its a nice chair, though. Just really large!

California Wife said...

I completely agree about those Disney commercials, I tear up every single time!

Anonymous said...

I think you are jealous of Erin from BEB- you seem to put her and her likes down a lot.

Sweet Simplicity said...

I SO wish I had Tammy Taylor's hair. I think that every single episode. It is amazing.

Jessi said...

Oh my gosh. I am so with you on the gas pains. I seriously couldn't move for hours. Our bodies go through so much while pregnant. It is a miracle it just knows what to do. Hope the gas passes. I've had BH too. Drink lots of water and it should help.

Kirsten said...

Cute blog--just found it through blog hopping! And I agree--what is the point of tissue paper on a public toilet seat anyway?

jen mccrady said...

so i JUST started watching friday night lights, and it is amazing! i think she is the most beautiful woman, and her hair is incredible! :)

Lauren said...

Lindsay Doty said...

I am going surprise our kids to with Disney-- the commercials made me so excited last night!

the rigdons said...

you gotta watch those gas pains... they get you every time!

petrii said...

Okay, so the comments on this post are hilarious!!!

You are so sweet and cute. I love that you are soaking in every moment of your pregnancy. It is just the best. I LOVED being pregnant and I LOVE my boy (who is officially not a boy anymore, but don't tell me that. I will cry like a mom who just saw the Disney commercial where the parents told the kids they were taking them to Disney World through their Pepperoni Pizza!!!)

Okay so longggggggestttttt commenter ever will let you be =)

Have a Blessed evening,
Dawn

I'm with you on the toilet seat covers, they're way to thin. I prefer to hover or just put layers of toilet paper down :) And if it makes you feel any better - -I have been pregnant twice and everyone told me I'd never lose the weight, etc. etc. but both times it just came off in the first couple of weeks after the baby was born. And I didn't get stretch marks either. So it IS possible! But even if the weight doesn't come off or you get stretch marks, it's not the end of the world :)

Oh, and sorry, but labor pains are a bajillion times worse than gas pains...I'd recommend an epidural ;)

mrsashcake said...

Love number 5.

and also, I think toilet seat covers are worthless too. I have used them MAYBE 6 times in my life. People think I'm weird and gross for not using it but really?! I can never get it to lay right and sometimes there is just no time to hassle with it! :]

Charmed said...

The Disney commercials are my fave! I make my fiance shut up every time they come on! Our family went every 3 years (no questions asked) so we never got the "surprise" thing. We won't be having kids any time soon but I can't wait to do it with our nieces and nephews! I get just as excited as the kids!!!

Jenni said...

I love your honesty... I always see myself in you, even though I'm not preggo {at the moment}. :) Those insanely horrible gas pains? I've had them once. I literally thought I was going to die, I kid you not. ;)

Jenni said...

P.S. - But I DO use the toilet seat covers aka the "ass gasket" as my husband calls them... HA! They provide me with a lovely false sense of security! ;)

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

We're a family that vacations at Disney every year, but I so want to surprise my kids with a trip when we have kids! I think it would be even more fun for me. :)

Nicole said...

Totally giggled in the public bathroom today when I heard the woman next to me using the paper seat cover. I've also wondered what a super thin sheet of paper was going to protect you from...
