some weird things

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and here are a few things I've been doing:

>>> Running into walls. Like seriously ... running smack into walls with an arm or a leg or sometimes my entire body. I have 17 bruises to prove it. Dan laughs every time.

>>> The other day a coworker brought in leftover baby shower cupcakes (we have four pregnancies in our office right now ... August, September, November and December. If you don't believe the saying "there's something in the water" ... well, you better believe it.) So anyway, this coworker brought in cupcakes and I immediately grabbed one and DEVOURED the entire thing. Then 10 minutes later I went back to get a second one and noticed something crazy.
The cupcakes had little plastic baby bottles on them. Hmm. That's strange. I don't remember a plastic bottle. You should have seen my face while standing there, trying to comprehend this. During our next ultrasound, if the sonographer sees our baby holding a miniature bottle, we'll know why. Oh but wouldn't that be adorable?!

>>> Picture this: A coworker and I eating lunch together in our break room. There were brownies. But apparently nothing to cut the brownies with. So said coworker grabs a plastic spoon to cut the brownies with. I looked at her and said, "What are you doing? We don't have any cereal?" Guys. I meant to say "We don't have any knives?". But clearly cereal and knives sound exactly the same. Pregnancy brain much? I got some good, loooong stares for that one.

>>> This is what I took for lunch yesterday: A big bowl of peas and green beans soaked in butter and lemon pepper. And three rolls. Then I happened to find a packet of sweet and sour sauce in my desk. I was dipping my green beans in sweet and sour sauce and my roll in my peas before I realized that ... THIS IS WEIRD.

Please.
Take me back to non-pregnancy (non-crazy) land.
I'm ready.

  6. Minus the green beans and peas thing, I'm pretty sure I do all the rest in some way shape or form on a regular basis (just other things I'm not paying attention to other than mini bottles). Uh oh. Hope that doesn't mean I've been drinking the same water!

  11. Haha! Maybe their wasn't a bottle on that one cupcake you ate? If there was, that must mean that you huffed that thing down and didn't chew ;) So funny!!

  12. oh goodness gracious, you crack me up!! This just made my day. Thank you for making me laugh. :) I disagree with the others, I think there was a bottle there and I hope baby grabs it! ;) Btw, I totally remember eating strange things like that. You are not alone!

  13. Omg... I totally miss sitting across from you everyday! Now i sit across from Greg and he isn't nearly as cute! :-)

  14. Haha you are making me miss being pregnant. Such a great excuse to eat crazy and say or do stupid things... because when you do that normally, it's not as cute :)

  15. I would and have done some of these things without being pregnant. Heaven help me when I really do end up knocked up, I will probably have to be isolated from society altogether.

  16. hahahaha -- your baby is so lucky to have a mom with such a good sense of humor! You will absolutely love having a boy! My son is now 15 and I have loved every minute (well almost) of being a mom to a boy - DElightful!

  17. You're 25 weeks already! That's gone so quickly! I feel like my pregnancy has dragged and now I'm in the last few weeks it feels like its going even slower :)

    You look great by the way! Pregnancy suits you x

  20. LOL, oh my I totally understand!! And I run into things all the freaking time now. I don't know if I'm not used to my larger body or what, but goodness it is awful!

  21. Hahahaha! Mini bottle during your next ultrasound... I MUST see this! ;-)

    I'm running into things too!! Not that I have much of a preggo belly right now... but YES. Last weekend I was in the bathroom and managed to boink BOTH hips on both sides of the bathroom counter. I promptly had bruises on each leg in the exact same spot...

    ReplyDelete
  22. that sounds like something I would eat and I am not even the least bit preggers :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh...you crack me up. I would TOTALLY say the cereal thing, too. And I, unfortunately, do have pregnancy brain to blame it on.

    You just make my smile :)

  24. Hahaha! Pregnancy brain turns into mommy brain!!!

  27. hahaha! The cupcake story is hilarious - I would've thought the same thing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That cupcake story, too funny. Hey wierd pregnancy cravings lets you eat what you want and you can blame the baby, baby wanted green beans and sweet and sour sauce. I've been majorly craving olives, like eat a can a day type craving, so bad, but oh so good! And if they're really cold it makes them so much better. Husband calls me weird, I told him the baby wants them. You look great!

  29. oh and about the running into things, it's gets worse when you forget how far out your belly goes and whack the baby in the counter, table, door, then you feel bad for forgetting that you're pregnant and have a belly. Or when you try to squeeze between those two chairs and realize, yeah that's not going to happen.

  30. You got such a cute bump lady!

  31. First off...you look AMAZING. Secondly...pregnancy messes with you hardcore. I'm a health nut (for the most part), but B never lets me forget that one month during my pregnancy where I went to McDonalds for a hamburger AT LEAST once a day.

    Enjoy the weirdness...you'll miss it when it's gone. :)
