06.22.10 :: 13 weeks

13 weeks pregnant today.
It’s going to go too fast, isn’t it?

Thank you to whomever sent me this kit in the mail.
I love it! Totally wanted it!
I want to thank the proper person, so please tell me who you are!

Sean saw a Pillow Pets commercial this morning. He says he wants one because it’s even machine washable. I couldn’t stop laughing for like 20 minutes. The stuff that comes out of Sean’s mouth sometimes… I can’t believe how smart this kid is. He uses logic in everything and retains everything.

I started taking Dicletin, and I just couldn’t get out of bed this morning. I had to force myself out of bed. I heard that this medication can make you really tired until your body gets used to taking it. I really hope that my body adjusts soon, because I almost much prefer the nausea of the zombiness. Honestly!

This evening Jamie had ball (in the drizzling rain), and I sat on the couch and caught up on Modern Family (not sure why I watch it, it’s so bad!) and caught up a bit on Parenthood. (I’ve still got 3 more episodes to catch up on). I worked on some knitting, starting & completing the project in 4 hours. I will show you tomorrow what I whipped up. I even had JUST enough yarn to make it. Details to come tomorrow, with pictures. Promise.

Today’s Link Love:
- Love this photo.
- This dress.
- This necklace on this awesome website.
- Wish I were more talented at sewing, I’d love to make a pink/girly material nursing cover. I’m going to attempt to nurse again after I give birth.
- Love this tutorial on how to make your own playdoh!
- Love this sock animal rattle tutorial!
- Love this diaper pouch tutorial as well.
- Love that I picked lettuce from our garden and made a fresh Caesar salad. YUM!
- Love that I was cleaning up my crawl space and found another missing bag of maternity clothes, which included my fave maternity jeans that I thought went missing and was gone for good. Still missing a fave three quarter length black shirt, but I’ll find something else to replace it, because I think it’s gone for good, unfortunately. (I think I’m also done with loaning things out. I never get everything back that I loan out, so it’s not even worth it anymore. Some people just don’t take care of your stuff, as you would their stuff. If I borrow stuff, I always make sure it goes back to the person who gave it to me).

Oh my!!!! I'm so excited!!! Thank you so much!!!

Anie said...

Wow, I win something!

and something practical and quick to knit - woohoo!

I love the link to the diaper carry case.

I found nursing tops to be a very good investment, especially since moving to the country and nursing being less frequent than in Montreal. milkface.com has nice oricey tops, but the momzelle.com has great deals and very nice fitting tops and you can breastfeed very discretely.

Robyn, you look just adorable - hope you're feeling better soon!

And are you saying you don't like Modern Family? It's become one of my favourite shows, to the point where I'm afraid to drink anything while watching in case I laugh and spit it out... that and The Office...

Hope the queasies go away soon! I lost 14 pounds during first trimester this time. Decided against meds for it though because of the zombie-factor. Kept oyster crackers and ginger chews next to my bed to eat before I even sat upright and practically lived on frozen fruit bars!

Ammerins said...

Congratulations on your pregnancy! (That's what I get for not checking the blog for a while, haha...) Enjoy this super precious time!

Bea said...

What's the kit for? I couldn't figure it out from looking at the pattern photo.

Tara said...

Sorry to hear it's been a rough first trimester, robyn. Hope either the nausea or the zombieness have cleared up by now :(
