Week 10...WHOA whos boobs are these??

Photo By WhyBuckWhy

So here we are at week ten, only three more weeks until I am out of the first trimester.
The nausea has started to fade away (thank god) although it rears its ugly head sometimes after dinner, but usually only lasts like 10 minutes. My tummy hasn’t gotten any bigger, but I am already in maternity pants because my hips thickened and I can’t button my pants. In other words, my ass got bigger lol.

I realized the other day that I have the breasts of Pamela Anderson after her first implants……Ok there not THAT big, but these are surely not my boobs! However, I will take them while they are on loan to me J

The one thing I learned that you DO NOT talk to people about is breast feeding. I honestly wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and so I asked a few people what they did, that wasn’t a good idea; I got some really strong criticism. Which sort of ticked me off; because I’m like, hey how can YOU criticize me for what I choose for my child?
What really gets me are people whose opinion I DON’T ask for. The ones (some whom I don’t even know well enough) saying, “Well you ARE going to breast feed right?”
When this comment was first made to me I actually kind of retreated a bit and would say,”ummm uhhh well I guess I mean umm” but now when I hear it I just strike back with “actually I don’t plan on it” or “I still have to discuss what options are best for me with my doctor” Screw it, it’s not their business.


This week should be a fun time, new years eve we are going over to my friend Julia’s to ring in the new year, I cannot wait to have some of her traditional Seipie that she makes for New Years…..mmmmmmmm. It’s like a seven layer pot pie. Tas-ty!
(ok is It just me or did that sound really dirty?)

Then New Years Day my mom and dad are coming to my house for the traditional pork and sauerkraut mmmmmmmmM!!! The rest of the week will probably be spent continuing to strip the paper in the nursery.

Hope you all had a great Christmas!! And a wonderful new year! Mrs. Munster , I want to see some new year’s picks of you having fun with your new camera!!

I am glad you are not feeling so sick anymore. Yay for the boobies =) I have a couple of friends that just had babies and they are going through the same breast feeding stuff. It's like everyone is a darn expert. I agree, you should do what is right for you. Well, I know, I will be well coached by you, Michelle, and Kristal by the time it's my turn. What are the plans for the nursery? xoxo

I think people are quite hot on the discussion on breast feeding. Well, it's best for the baby but there can be some complications on the way. You just have to see how things go.

Awww I didn't know you had a blog! How cute! I loved the mommy videos. (your mom is so funny!) I didn't breastfeed and Lex is perfect, but you do what you feel most comfortable with. Happy New Year! I'm so happy to be able to talk to you again!
