I woke up this morning and put on some face makeup. I put facial hair on and scruffed up his face with brown face makeup. He also put tooth discoloration stuff on his teeth so they are all rotting looking. It's kinda gross up close. Oh I also put black eye liner around his eyes....kinda scary to look at your husband like that.
Now he is at school and work until 5 and I am going into Roberts today at noon for a little halloween party for the employees. Tonight Allen and I are going to spend halloween together tonight passing out candy. We will probably only have our niece come by but we got a bag of candy just in case we might have more. I dont think we will but its better to be safe than sorry! :)
So that is our plan for today. Are any of you doing anything fun?

Allen: What is that?
Whitney: (her face is perking up and holding up the PJ's) Look at these cute PJ's!
Whitney: Look, it says dads most valuable player (pointing to the saying and tears start to flow!)
Allen: Are you crying? WHY?!?!?!
Whitney: I just fell in love with it and it is making me so anxious for our little boy!
Allen: You know you are going to have to put it back!
Whitney: WHY?!?!?! I love it and it is soooo soft. It's only $7.99 and we haven't boughten anything yet for our little boy. Don't make me put it down, it's going to break my heart.
Allen: Go put it back Whitney.
Whitney: Can I at least carry it around with me until we leave? (So sad and holding it close to my body again)
Allen: Sure but you look like an idiot carrying it around like that
So as we walked around I carried it with me close to my body. As we got to the cash register I looked at the lady and handed her the baby PJ's and said, "My husband is being mean and not letting me get this so we don't want it." She looked over at Allen and he said, "What? I know she is going to come back next week anyways and come get it without me knowing!" I smiled and then as we were leaving the lady said to me, "See you next week!" and she had a big smile. Hahaha...it was so funny. In the car I promised Allen I wouldn't go get it until he gave the okay for me to. So he said maybe when we get paid next I can go get it. Oh I want it so bad! It is so soft and our baby will LOVE it! I know I would! :)
This morning I was supposed to have our "BIG ULTRASOUND" appointment. It wouldn't be so big for us though since we already know the sex, so it would just be for pictures and to see the size and see how my condition is getting. Well it was at 9:30 and since we already found out the sex Allen wasn't going to come since he has work and school. Well I set my alarm last night and went to sleep. I wake up instantly when I realize it is to light outside to be the time I set me alarm for and never heard it. I quickly glance at the clock and it was 9:30 on the dot. I MISSED MY APPOINTMENT. I was supposed to be there right then. I about cried because I was so excited to see our little boy moving around again and to get more pictures. I messed up on setting my alarm! :( So I called to doctors and the next appointment they have is Tuesday at 11:30. So I will be having my appointment then! Man, I was so so so bummed. Why do we get so emotional being pregnant. Its crazy!

I seriously hate that until 20 weeks they only measure from head to their butt. Why dont they include the legs? His legs are long so they would add so much length to the measurement. I guess they only count to the butt because the legs are bent and stuff. Its awesome to know though that my baby boy is 5 1/2 inches from his head to butt...because really he is way longer than that. Its CRAZY to know I have a baby inside of me. My belly is getting big enough to were I dont know were to put my arms. Its so funny! So last night I felt this weird feeling in my stomach and I am pretty sure it was the baby, but cant be positive. I guess I wont really know its the baby until I start feeling it more often. That's twice now that I have felt something in there but I am not counting it to be the first time I felt him because i am not positive!
Today was my first day back at work. My body is KILLING me. I worked an 8 hour shift standing at a cash register all day. So doing that right after being on bed rest for 3 weeks really kills. I work 7 hours tomorrow night and then I am off for the rest of the week. It will be great to relax over the weekend.
Well things are going well in the Bennett house. We have carved our pumpkins and are so excited for the holidays. Allen's birthday is on Thanksgiving this year so that will be fun. This year Allen's family is coming up here for Christmas so that will be great! It will be nice to work and not have to ask for it off. This is my first year away from my family for Christmas so it will be different, but I am very excited at the same time to spend the holidays with the Bennett's for the first time. Allen is going to school and working really hard between 2 jobs. He is such a trooper and I am so proud of him. Besides that nothing new is going on. I am just anxiously waiting for our little boy. We have so much more to go...almost half way! :)

As promised here is my first pregnancy picture. I dont know where this baby bump came from because I swear I didn't have it a few days ago. Yesterday it seems like I woke up to a belly and then I woke up this morning and it was even BIGGER! Holy cow now I look huge. Anyways, there is my baby bump...I guess our little boy just had a growth spurt! We love him already! :) I am almost 18 weeks in this picture...

Allen had a little "campout" last night with the Young Men. Well it wasn't really a campout, but whatever! The church rented a cabin up in Park City for the Priest group and they made plans for future activities. I guess they made Pizzas for dinner and breakfast burritos this morning. He got home this afternoon and I was so happy to see him! I just love when my husband comes home!
Today was such an eventful day and I am so tired. It wouldn't be eventful for the normal human being, but seeing that I've been on bedrest the past 3 weeks, doing ANYTHING wipes me out! It was our nieces third birthday party today. Man was she adorable. We just LOVE her to death. Here is a little picture of her so I can show everyone how spoiled I am for having the cutest niece around:
She is just the cutest thing around and the most perfect little girl. It sure is fun to have her in your life! She is always so happy and constantly doing the funniest things. I just love how she makes you laugh always and you cant help but smile. Whenever you walk in the room her face lights up and she gets so excited to see you. Even though her birthday was officially this past Thursday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY! WE LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH! She had a strawberry shortcake birthday party and she was just adorable!
After the birthday party we went with Allen's family to this corn maze place here in Orem. We went last year as well. It is so fun to walk around and see Abby playing. They have all sorts of stuff there and it is fun. Then Allen and I went to pick out pumpkins, but couldn't find any there that we really liked. So we drove to Albertson's and we each picked out a pumpkin to carve. The plans were to carve it tonight but I was too wiped out and started feeling sick. My stomach was KILLING me because I was walking around so much. So when we got home I took a little nap. I guess tomorrow will be pumpkin carving time....and I am going to take a picture so everyone can see me pregnant. My belly is starting to grow! WOOHOO!

I AM DYING! I just finished the third book today. Man does each book get thicker and thicker...this one was over 600 pages long. I never would have thought I would read such big books and read them so quickly, but I am ADDICTED! I could not put this book down. Oh it was so good. After reading the last paragraph of this book I just got so restless. I HAVE TO READ THE FOURTH BOOK! Allen's sister is letting me borrow it. All I have to say is I am not ready to finish reading this series. I dont want my life with Bella and Edward to end. I want to read about them forever. I think Allen is ready for me to be done so he can finally have his wife back. I have been neglecting him because the books are just so good. I am sorry honey. For any of you out there who have STILL not read these books, you have to. You wont regret it. We have a month until the movie comes out so GET ON IT SO YOU AREN'T MISSING OUT!
Okay I am done...now I am just waiting patiently! :)
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
Man these emails are starting to get shorter and shorter each week! :( Oh well. I have been really uncomfortable this week. My stomach has funny pains and I just hurt always. Poor Allen has to keep listening to me say, "MY STOMACH HURTS!" and he just replies, "What else is new?" Poor guy. When I lay down flat on my back I feel like my baby sinks into me and it just hurts. I lay on my side and my side aches. I hear from everyone that's its time to get a body pillow. I am just so uncomfortable...
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
So I finished the second book today. I wont say anything about any details of this book for the sake of those who have not read them. This book took longer for me to read. I was able to put it down. I am not saying that it wasn't interesting, it just wasn't as good as the first book. I still really enjoyed the book, so don't get me wrong, it just had its ups and downs. I have mixed feelings, a lot of frustrations, and a lot of questions. After about the first 100 pages or so I didn't want to continue reading the book. But after many people telling me that I had to continue, I did. It took a day for me to pick it back up, but once I did I was very glad. All I have to say is WHY?!?!?! Everything in this book I keep wanting to scream WHY?!?!?!?! I know that the third book is amazing and very interesting like the first (at least that's what I've heard.) I know that the third book will answer a lot of those "WHY" questions and I just need to get on it. So here I go... ECLIPSE HERE I COME!

I love love my nephew so much. My sister Ashlee had Peyton in April. He is just the sweetest little guy and so adorable. It just makes my day when she posts new pictures of him. We don't get to see him because they live in Virginia. Well she posted these pictures today and I decided to scrapblog them. Isn't he just the cutest? I love his little butt in that picture of him by the tub! :) It makes me so anxious for our little boy to get here!

I know, I know...some of you HATE these books because of how Stephanie Meyers writes, but most of you love it. I think everyone in the world has read the whole series except for me. Well, being on bedrest was the great time to start. I am the slowest reader in the world and I HATE reading with a passion. Surprisingly I started the book at 3:30 PM and I closed the book when I was finished at 4:00 AM. I know it took me a long time to read because I suck at reading. I absolutely LOVED the book. Even in high school when we were reading a certain book in English and required to read the book, I refused. I NEVER READ because I absolutely HATE reading. I would just read the cliff notes and call it good :) Well I am in love with these books. My sister in law Maria is letting me borrow the first three. I am going to be finished in no time...
Friday, October 17, 2008
Oh I just love it so much. I showed Allen the colors I was thinking for our nursery and he thought that it would be great. So our colors are going to be Brown, Cream, and Baby Blue. I don't want to do a theme for the room like some people do...I just like plain colors. Since our furniture is so dark we are going to just stick with cream bedding and then accent with blue and cream throughout the room. I was looking at some picture online at some baby rooms and saw the decorations for this nursery and I love it!
We cant paint in our apartment so I was thinking about maybe getting brown, cream, and light blue vinyl and cutting out polka dots to put on the main wall that the crib will be on. I wanted to bring in some colors on the walls so that it isn't just plain white and I think this is a great idea to do it. I haven't cleared it with Allen yet, so I guess he will find out when he reads this post! :) So what do you guys think?
After we did some planning at Babies R Us, Allen took me out for ice cream at Sub Zero. For those who haven't had it...it is the best ice cream in the world. You choose your base, whether you want non fat yogurt, custard, etc...and then you choose your flavor ice cream. They have seriously like 50 flavors ice cream and then you choose a topping for a mix in. The ice cream is just a liquid in front of you as they mix it together, and right in front of your eyes....THEY FREEZE IT! It is the coolest thing to see your liquid you picked out freeze in front of your eyes. I chose Chocolate fudge with skor bar pieces and it was the best ice cream I have ever tasted. We will for sure go back again. For those living in the Provo/Orem area, YOU MUST GO! So yummy. So thanks Allen for the wonderful date night. It sure was fun planning for our little boy! We love him already! :)

For those who don't know, I have a baby blog. I am using this as my pregnancy diary. Each post is kind of like a letter from us to our son explaining what is going on in our pregnancy. I write about each doctors appointment and will post every ultrasound picture as we get them. I try to talk about what the pregnancy is like for us to give you and our child an understanding of what these 9 months are like (well obviously only the good stuff...I don't want our son to know the bad stuff!)
Today I changed the background and designed a header for the top! I also added a new post! So there is a link to it in the right side column under the sections labeled "My Blogs", or you can CLICK HERE to get to it!
So our little boy is growing so big! I absolutely love getting these emails. I can't believe I am already 16 weeks. So up until 20 weeks the way they measure the baby is from head to their bum...not to their feet. Once I hit 20 weeks they start measuring from head to toe. So our baby from his head to his butt is about 4 1/2 inches right now, but really he is a lot longer than that because of his legs...I dont understand why they dont include the legs. So I wonder how big our baby really is! :) It is so much fun. Stay tuned for some pregnancy pictures. As soon as I get the energy to get ready for the day I will post a picture! :)

I have been in this awkward stage for about the last month and I just can't seem to get out of it! This awkward stage hits when your stomach tightens up and gets rock hard. Your belly grows a little bit but not a ton. You get this awkward looking gut that you can't suck in anymore because your stomach is so hard. Your normal clothes are too tight and uncomfortable, but maternity clothes are too big! You just can't find anything to wear, and you don't feel cute. You do your makeup and hair and you just feel gross. You've gained some weight but people don't know you are pregnant. It's just AWKWARD! Most women get in and out of this stage very quickly because one morning their belly just "POPS" and you start looking pregnant. I have been waiting for this pop and it just isn't happening. People keep telling me that I should be grateful that I haven't popped yet but I am not. I am so sick of this stage. I just sit around in my husband clothes because they are loose on me and I can get comfortable. I just want out of this awkward stage.
What do you do to feel better? What can you wear? How do you get comfortable? I have decided that there is no answer to that question. My sister in law Maria told me on Sunday that I probably just hide my belly differently because I am so tall. Short people tend to just stick out because there isn't anywhere for the little guy to go but straight out. For me there is more room I guess...but still I want to feel cute being pregnant. It makes sense that tall people can hide it better but I don't want to hide it anymore.
How do you get out of this stage? Any suggestions would help so please keep them coming...

Maria (Allen's sister) invited us over for dinner tonight! That was so sweet of her since I am not supposed to be up cooking. It will be nice to have a good meal tonight because I have been dying for one. Thanks Maria we really appreciate it a lot!
I talked again with Roberts on the phone and told them what my doctor said. My doctor said that it would be okay for me to continue there after my bedrest since it isn't strenuous on my body. I thought they would fill my position in the meantime but the Lord sure is blessing Allen and I. My manager said, "Ok we will see you in 2 more weeks then!" Oh I was so happy that I didn't lose that job. So in two weeks I get to start working there again, but I am finished at The Pizza Factory. The doctor said that it wasn't good to continue there and that it could cause harm to the baby. So first comes mine and my little sons health, so I am finished. It is really sad though because it is s great job. So goodbye Pizza Factory!
Also in the previous post I posted a pic of the baby furniture I am thinking about for our little son. Tell me if you like it or not. As for nursery colors I was thinking about baby blue, brown, and cream...but Allen doesn't like it. Any other suggestions?

8 things I like a whole lot
- Anything that has to do with art. I love doing ceramics, drawing, painting, scrapbooking, etc. You get the picture. I am kinda an art nerd. I haven't been able to do much with art since I moved from Washington because I didn't have the space, nor the time. I guess since I am on bed rest now I have time! :)
- I absolutely love more than anything when Allen laughs. When you tickle him he lets out this laugh that you never hear. It is my FAVORITE. When I hear it, it just makes me day! Love ya honey!
- Craft stores. Roberts is my favorite store. I love every section of craft stores! Right now they are especially fun because they have their holiday decorations out and they are so neat!
- When the seasons change. I am always ready for the new weather and colors of each season. By the end of each season I am just so sick of the cold or heat and am ready to move on. My favorite season change is from summer to fall. I just love it so much. P.S. We are supposed to have the first snow fall today on the ground...we've had it in the mountains but not here yet!
- I love my son! I love reading updates on him each week. I love holding my hand on my stomach and knowing that he is in there. I love hearing his heart beat and I love watching him move around in my stomach in the ultrasounds. The joy and love you feel is amazing and UNBELIEVABLE. I can hardly wait to start feeling him kick and to hold him in my arms. I just love him already!
- Mexican food! I can live off of it 24/7 and be perfectly happy. Beans and rice are just so dang good!
- Naps. Well until this bed rest thing I loved them...now they just suck! But I know I will love them again once I can leave this house
- My husband! I know, I know...it's annoying hearing how much people love their husband. But I love the way he is. He makes me so happy and I couldn't imagine being without him. When he walks in the door each day from work I get so excited and just want to hug him. He is just so great!
8 words or phrases I say often
- "Are you done YET?!?!?!, I am SOOO bored!" (When Allen plays his Xbox)
- "I want cheese" (lately I just cant get enough, I love eating string cheese and those Tilamok cheddar sqaures!)
- "Is it bedtime yet?" (every night when I want to go to bed and Allen isn't finished watching tv, and everynight it ends up me going to bed by myself and him coming in hours later)
- "I love you!" (I say it a million times a day and I think it annoys Allen...haha)
- "I HATE THIS BEDREST THING" (and Allen responds always, "sorry but get used to it!"....what a stinker)
- ok thats only 5, I couldn't think of anymore.
8 things I want to do before I die
- Go skydiving but Allen wont let me
- Have lots of children/grandchildren to love and spoil!...ok I dont want to spoil my kids but I want to spoil my grandkids! :) HAHAHA!
- Probably go on a mission with Allen when we are old
- Travel around the world to some cool places
- Move away from Utah! HAHAHA. :)
- I agree with Casey on this one: Make a difference in the world…somehow. How? I do not know.
- Watch my children grow up righteously and marry into the Temple.
- Memorize what temperatures I need the oven on for each meal so that I don't have to call my mom everytime! :HAHAHA. One day I will get it mom...
8 things I've learned in my life thus far
- Everything happens for a reason and Heavenly Father has a plan for us.
- Always treat adults with respect
- You always get caught lying...so just don't do it!
- Without an education, you get nowhere in life.
- Your family will be there for you when no one else is.
- Always save your 20% off coupons from Bed, Bath & Beyond that you get in the mail, because you can use them all at once in one purchase and get all your items for 20% off! SERIOUSLY!
- Actions speak louder than words!
- Don't be afraid to give people compliments when they come into your head. You never know when they are having a bad day and you saying something nice can change everything for them.
8 places I'd love to visit
- Seattle everyday of my life!
- New York. I have been there once and it was awesome!
8 things I currently need or want
- My baby
- Food storage to protect my family
- Money. We are broke since I cant work. I need maternity clothes but we just cant go get any.
- I want to own a house so that we can do whatever we want to it and have a lawn and a garden!
- ONE good pair of shoes. I need a pair to last me through the winter and to be comfortable for me while being pregnant and on my feet.
- The money to go grocery shopping and actually get stuff to make good food.
- Something to keep me busy while on bedrest. I seriously can't do this anymore!
- I want Christmas to come sooner. This will be Allen's and my first Christmas together. I am so excited...
8 people I tag
I dont care. Whoever wants to do it can

Thursday, October 9, 2008
Now for the bad news...I cannot lift or do ANYTHING whatsoever for at least a week. If I do anything at all besides stay laying down, the bleeding could happen again and could cause some problems. After a week, I can do VERY minimal activity. He said I could leave the house after a week but still cant lift anything and cant be on my feet for very long. I cannot go to work at Roberts for a good 3 weeks because it is considered too strenuous on my body still. I am sure Roberts will just fill the position with someone else because thats a long time away. As for my job at The Pizza Factory, the doctor said that it would not be good for my situation to continue waitressing. There is too much walking and carrying things and it could cause harm to myself and my baby. So my waitressing days look to be over for now. I am hoping to be able to pick up shifts every once in awhile though once the baby comes so that we can get some extra income. I am really bummed because it looks like I am now going to be unemployed. I sure don't know what Allen and I are going to do, but I know the Lord will bless us. We are supposed to bring this blessed boy into this world and I know we will be blessed through our struggles. So I am on bed rest for at least three weeks, and at that point we will see if it has progressed.
So that is the update. Our baby boy is still healthy and we will know more in 3 weeks...until then, I will be BORED stiff at home. KILL ME NOW! :)
Wednesday, October 8, 2008
Since I am on bed rest I obviously can't work. The Pizza Factory has been so great about everything and I feel so grateful that my manager Hillary is helping me out. All of the servers have been so great at taking my shifts and texting me to see if I am okay or if I need anything. Thank you all so much. As of right now I asked Hillary to take me off the schedule till things get better. The hospital told me last night that with my situation it will be very dangerous for me through my whole pregnancy and I shouldn't be serving. I am going to speak to my doctor tomorrow and if he tells me I am done serving, then that's how it is going to have to be. I am really sad though because I really like my job and wanted to continue serving up until I deliver. But if it is going to be dangerous for me and the baby with the situation, then it just isn't worth it. We will see...
As for Roberts they were also so great with everything. Seeing that I just got hired and only have worked 3 shifts and they didn't even know I was pregnant, they took it great. I told them that the doctor has put me on bed rest and I am not sure when I will be able to work and that I understand if they need to hire somebody else. My manager Karen was so great and told me to relax and take it easy. She told me to describe my work duties there to the doctor and see if that will be okay for me to continue there. So tomorrow I will know so much more. If I can't do either jobs anymore through my pregnancy I will have to find a desk job where I just sit there. If anyone knows of anything let me know because I may be needing a new job. I will be SOOOO sad if I have to leave Roberts because it is seriously such a fun job. I enjoy working there and everyone is just so nice. It sure is fun to work there during the holidays because of all the decorations...it just makes me so happy.
So all day today I have just laid on the couch and watched TV in Allens clothes. I love wearing them because they are big on me and so comfortable. I am so lonely all day because I just lay there bored stiff! If anyone has any ideas on what to do....PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!
On a happier note, I am 15 weeks today. Here was my email for today:
"Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")"
Haha...I already know the sex of the baby so I am already ahead of this email. Well like I said in the previous post the hospital measured the baby in the ultrasound and our little boy is growing ahead of schedule. This means that he is BIGGER than the apple. :) They said the doctor should be moving me up ahead about a week so I will maybe find out tomorrow. I will let everyone know how everything is going and keep you all posted. Thanks so much for your concerns and love. It sure has helped a lot!

I know you are all wanting to know what we are having.....soooooo......
We are having.......
!!!!!!!!!! A BOY !!!!!!!!!!
Oh we are so excited! Allen and I were both hoping for a boy so we are just so dang happy! The doctor said that I am still at high risk for miscarriage because of how my placenta lays over my cervix and there is a tare in my placenta. So I am now on bed rest until directed otherwise. This is really sad seeing that I just started my new job a few days ago and now I cant work. I sure hope they are going to be okay with anything. If you all could just keep Allen and I in your prayers that would be great. I am going to stay off my feet for awhile and pray and hope that everything goes well...

***For those who don't know about my recipe blog, there is a link to it in the right hand column under the list "My Blogs"
Conference was great this morning. I sure love Thomas S. Monson! Isn't he just so great. I do have to admit though that it is still weird to not see cute Gordon B. Hinckley with his cane and his smiles! I sure miss him! I avoided trying to eat breakfast today because I didn't feel like throwing up today. Eventually I got hungry so I made some toast, and that worked out well for me. I am going to attempt to eat Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy tonight. Wish me luck!
Also, I posted a new recipe so check it out. Stay tuned this week for some more recipes!
Saturday, October 4, 2008
I really enjoyed Dallin H. Oaks talk this morning. I think that his talk really needed to be heard. For those who didn't get to listen to it, it was about the sacrament. He talked about the reverence that should be held in the chapel and everything. Oh it was so great. I LOVED how he mentioned that we should all arrive early and sit in our seats quietly while listening to the music. It is not a time for socializing and preparing. We need to sit there reverently and prepare for the sacrament. I thought about how noisy it is ALWAYS in sacrament before it starts and how everyone walks around talking. I sure hope people listened to his talk and follow his direction. I know that if we listen to the music and prepare for the sacrament that we will get so much more out of the talks and church.
So you know how most people make a big breakfast the mornings of conference and you sit there in you PJs and eat breakfast in front of the TV...well we did that today, like always. My family has always done that and it is my favorite. Well normally we make a huge breakfast with eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, toast....EVERYTHING! There is a little bit of everything. Well with being pregnant I cant keep down hasbrowns and eggs so we had to alter the normal "conference breakfast". So I decided we would make waffles with homemade syrup, bacon, and sausage. Not huge, but stuff I can keep down. Well, I didn't keep it down. Oh I was so sad. I couldn't even enjoy my conference breakfast! I ate almost all of it and I only had a few bites left when all of a sudden I spit out my bite that was in my mouth and stood up quickly. Allen knew what was up...I was about to throw it up. I tried to drink some water and try to keep it down but I knew I wasn't going to be able to. So I ran to the bathroom and you get the picture. I was so sad! Allen came into the bathroom and stood there with me and made sure I was okay. It was so cute. I was just so glad that he came and checked on me and showed me that he loves me. I love my husband so much!
I have to work tonight at Roberts for ladies night out. I am prepared for it to be one CRAZY night tonight. I will let you know how it goes...
Thursday, October 2, 2008
For my new job I cant wear skirts, and seeing thats all I own, I had to go get some new pants. I cant wear blue jeans there so I have to wear like black pants and khakis, etc. So I thought it was pointless to go buy regular pants seeing that my belly will probably start growing more in the next few weeks. I had to get maternity pants...
I went to JCPenney's cuz I hear that's a great place to get maternity clothes. They were having a sale like always. I got a pair of khakis for $21 and they were normally $40. These pants I got are so stinkin' cute and so comfortable. Oh I love them so much. I hear there is really uncomfortable maternity pants but if you get the right ones, that they can feel really nice. Let me tell you, I wore my khakis to the Pizza Factory tonight at work, and boy do I love them. They are the most comfortable pants EVER! I LOVE MY MATERNITY PANTS! I know how dumb that sounds but they feel GREAT! I also got a pair of capris. They are black and they are really dressy...and also so comfortable. But get this....the capris were normally $35 and they were on clearance for.....drum roll please....$3.48 CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT! I was SOOOOOO stinkin' excited and Allen was proud of my purchase.
So now here I am having to wear maternity pants with such a small pregnant belly. Most girls wait forever to get them, but now I am ahead of the game. Now all I need is my baby to grow so these pants can fulfill their purpose. Oh how fun...

In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.
YAY FOR MY BABY! This last week my stomach hardened up. It now is so hard, it's crazy. It sure is very uncomfortable...
