I love maternity clothes. The second line on the EPT test turned up and Liv and I were in a dressing room at Macy's while I tried on maternity clothes. I get a Tip A Day on email from a pregnancy site. It's usually a day or week too late but it's amazingly close to something I've been experiencing. This was at the bottom of today's tip:
What’s your favorite must-have pregnancy accessory? Is it a favorite piece of maternity wear? A super-cozy body pillow? We’ll help you find great accessories to help make the rest of your pregnancy easier and more fun!
I think my favorite pregnancy accessory is my necklace that says Due in March. I get compliments every time I wear it (yesterday it was Christian's pediatrician who went on and on about it and even said he mentioned it to his wife after the first time he saw me wear it. I love it. I only have a couple more months to wear it and then I'll tuck it away with my favorite maternity things or maybe I'll put it with an ultrasound picture.
This pregnancy is drawing to a close. Last night I would have said it can't come fast enough as I was on all fours in the living room trying to get some relief. But today I'm just happy and content with this little being right where it is.
Its Baby Book, black and white flying cow and black crib skirt came in the mail today.
Slowly but surely we're becoming more and more prepared for his or her arrival.
I love quotes and inspirational sayings. Liv has/had a notebook with sayings all over it. I just loved it. I've wanted to make one for a couple years. I've been reading a lot lately and I have post its all over. Here's my latest list of quotes I have recently enjoyed.
*A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one. - Mary Kay Ash
* Children tend to imitate the food choices and eating practices of people they admire, both adults and peers.
Frequent punishment promotes only immediate compliance not lasting changes in behavior.
Our job is to teach the students we have.
Not the ones we would like to have.
Not the ones we used to have.
Those we have right now.
All of them.
And my all time personal favorite which I continue to come across every so often:
People will forget what you said.
People will forget what you did.
But people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
I've been waiting for January 22 for a couple months. The New Kids on the Block were announcing some big news. Luckily they announced it on The View during the only time throughout the day I could actually have the TV on.
They are going on tour this summer and they're releasing a single next week and an album in April.
They were very quiet through 2012. As I was hoping they would be while I grow this human being in my womb. However, they're back in action in 2013. I'm am beyond thrilled. Not only are they performing in Minneapolis in July they are with my #2 band of all time 98 Degrees. They performed with them this summer and I looked into going to Philadelphia even though I was pregnant.
Apparently it went well, because they're set to put on a major tour this summer. It will start with Boys II Men, then 98 Degrees with NKOTB as the main act.
I am beyond thrilled. I will have some major motivation to lose this baby weight this spring.
