Yes, It's Scary

Keely asked for me to tell her what being pregnant is like, because it sounds scary. Well, it scary. But it's also crazy, wonderful, annoying, surprising, and a lot of other adjectives. 

The first part was kind of like having PMS and the flu at the same time. I was bloated, moody, achy, tired, nauseous, etc. and I hated it. It was gross. 

Now, I feel fine. I've grown a full bra size, so my shoulders hurt sometimes with the weight of my newfound C-cups, and I still get tired easily. But my appetite is back, and I feel like myself again and not some demon-woman who wants to scream and kick puppies and stuff. 

And the best / weirdest part is the little tumor growing below my belly button. It's really bizarre. I've lost 8 pounds since getting pregnant, but the little lump keeps getting bigger! And it's really hard - like when you eat way too much and have a "food baby," but lower down. 

I had a doctor's appointment last Friday; Baby's heart rate was 156 bpm and everything looks right on track. My next appointment is May 15th, and that's when we'll find out whether Baby is a boy or a girl! Yay! May 15th is also the lat day of finals, so if anyone possesses time-warping powers, I'd like to fast forward to that day, please!
