"N" is for Nesting and other crazy pregnancy stuff..

The letter of the day is "N" for "Nesting". 

Brought to you by pregnancy.  

Nesting Instinct

"Around the fifth month of pregnancy, the "nesting" instinct can set in. This is an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world."

This little tidbit comes from parenting weekly.

And all I can say is "Wowza" it's a doozey!    I can't tell you where my cell phone, keys, wallet, fork, or any other object I need is but holy hell can I clean!   It's truly remarkable, and it makes me really, really mad!  

Trust me, there is so much more I'd rather be doing than detail cleaning the cracks of my stove top/ oven/ door glass at 1:30 a.m.   But yet there I am scrubbing away like a mad woman...  Because apparently, newborn babies will need a spotlessly clean stove.  

My mind is fried, any intellectual thought process is gone and I am a cleaning, crying, round, chubby little mad woman.  

But enough of the "NESTING" talk today was a sad, sad day.   I've been mourning the loss of a dear friend.   We'll just call him 'Mr. French Onion Dip'

I lost it.  I just lost it.   I cried, for lack of a better term "like a baby".  Why you ask?  Oh because I found my bag of much needed potato chips in the fridge and my to die for French onion chip dip in my chip cabinet.     I can't even get mad at anyone since I'm certain I did it.   I think after a good thaw the chips will be fine but leaving my chip dip in the cabinet above a light fixture for 10 hours may have proved too much to think there's a chance of survival.  

I'm still clearly upset about this, but too lazy to go buy more tonight, so I've been reading this in attempt to understand my silly self a little better  Understanding your hormones during pregnancy.

This is one quote (in case you have no interest in the article). " Pregnancy is apt to turn any formerly sane and seemingly competent woman into a rather unpredictable creature; and with good reason! The culprits, it seems, are our hormones."   

Seems legit to me.   I have always been sane....   At least a little. 

Shut up.

The aptitude of your toning division relies absolutely on the status of your gel pads, so you am about to take profitable care of them and supplant them mutually new ones back they’re hand me down up. It is advisable that when you decision, you further include 2 to 3 sets of gel pads so you merit to act with regard to the belt for longer periods of time.
