Ok so maybe I haven't quite dedicated myself to blogging on a continual basis yet. I'll get better, I promise.

I wanted to blog about my pregnancy experiences but so far not much has happened. We did get to hear the heartbeat for the first time on July 1st. That was pretty exciting, except I felt like I couldn't breathe. I didn't want to make any sounds within my body so that we could just focus on the sound of the baby, instead of my lungs if I had breathed. haha. It was very nice to have concrete evidence that there is something growing in there, instead of the two pink lines I saw on a stick was back in May.

I haven't really been sick at all. I have experienced nausea, and I did throw up twice, but in the grand scheme of things I know I shouldn't complain.

I do have one complaint however, and I don't know how many people will be reading this blog, but it's something I wish I could say to everyone. Stop commenting about my weight!!! I'm so tired of people inferring that I am not doing my part in eating enough for the baby. I am taking vitamins. I am eating about 7 times a day. I buy fruits and veggies, and I am trying to eat smart. And I sneak in all those cookies and ice creams and desserts that I feel every pregnant woman gets to indulge in. I am not starving my child! I want this child to be as healthy as possible.

And stop telling me how not-pregnant I look. Trust me, I know. I wish I had a cute little belly, but you know what, this is my first child and you usually don't start showing until 4 months with your first. I'm only 3 and a half months. My baby weighs like an ounce or something..... I'm sorry that my stomach isn't huge like everyone would like it to be, but geez, seriously, what do you want me to do about it? This is nature. It makes me so mad. I always hoped that when I got pregnant it would be the one time in my life that people would get off my back about my weight, but no, it's just making things worse. The next time someone says, "Oh my gosh you're so skinny, put on some weight" I will seriously consider saying "Oh my gosh, you're so fat, why don't you lose some weight"..... because when you think about it, it's equally as insulting...... only people don't think about it. I would never in a million years tell someone they are fat, so why does everyone, family, friends and strangers alike feel like they have the right to say something to me?!

Ok, I'm done venting.
