[[MORE]]How Far along? 31 weeks Size of the fetus? Approximately 16.25 in. and over 3.3lbs. (But we’ll see what the doctor says today at my appointment) Any new symptoms? Heartburn seems to be gone for now. My back hurts still but that’s because of my huge boobs. I’ve been getting a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions and they’ve been absolutely ZERO fun. I’m trying...
A Haiku about pregnant hormones.
hypmama: momma-marine: FUCK YOU I’M PISSED OFF I really want some chocolate I need sex also. OH MY GOD HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
It was a great, relaxing weekend. We slept in, played some Minecraft, went swimming, saw a movie, cuddled with our pets, etc. etc. Until last night… Hubz hasn’t really drank alcohol since I got pregnant, but because of yesterday’s holiday, he indulged. He was sad and reminiscing about his military days (which were only about 6 months ago) and sipping on a couple of mixed...
Did not sleep well
Last night, I was very, very tired. My little sister turned 19 (God, I feel so old) and we had a big fancy dinner out for her. I went home and basically collapsed in bed with my feet propped up to calm the swelling. Apparently, Hubz said that I was moaning in my sleep all night. I’m guessing that I had some Braxton Hicks, which kill my lower back. I woke up around 1 am and removed my...
I'm never watching a youtube video again
I just watched a Hypnobirthing delivery on YouTube. This bitch just calmly caught her baby in her arms…like breathed hard for a couple of seconds and then, BOOM. BABY.

What's sexier? Cellulite or Stretch Marks?
skinnystina: babydubs2012: Stretch marks ON cellulite! My legs are so sexy that it’s not even funny. This^ im a sexy bitch.
I just want some cheesy bread and buffalo wings. Goddamn pregnancy cravings.
Ekphrastic Poetry Reading
Last night, 6 poets, myself included, got to do a ekphrastic poetry reading to Penny McElroy’s collage art. Ekphrastic poetry is poetry written in response to art pieces. It was a great experience for all and an amazing creative exercise. Not only was Penny’s art multilayered and story-telling in itself, she allowed us all to write poems on her work without meeting most of us....

This is exactly what I've been trying to say →
My fetus has a penis. I have no way of knowing where he’ll fall on the gender spectrum. While me and Hubz are cis-female and cis-male, we know that that is not how it is for some people or will necessarily be for our children. I wish more people were educated about that.
Asking for permission
Our 4 year wedding anniversary is creeping up on us. It’s only a few weeks before my due date. While reflecting on the last 4 years of marriage and catching up (read: Facebook stalking) with some friends who are in the process of getting engaged/engaged/married, I wanted to write about why Hubz didn’t ask my parents (specifically my father) for permission or “my hand” in...
Hubz came into bed late last night, around 3am. (Playing Minecraft which I completely understand since I stay up reading so often). He leans over to rub my belly and fetus gives him a quick earthquake like shudder against his hand. Then, Hubz whispers, “He’s awake.” And I groan and whisper back, “I know.” Does he not realize that I feel every little bump, kick,...

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
Last night was terrible. I felt terrible. It was a stressful day at work and all I wanted to do was collapse and go to bed for a few weeks. I had nasty Braxton Hicks contractions (false labor) which gave me migraine-like headaches, nausea, dizziness and weird lower back spasms. I felt like death. Part of me wanted to write something last night like “Feel like crap. lol blog it!” I...
I put up that “Republicans: In our Vaginas” video on my Facebook. Hubz’s family is REALLY conservative. Like, I’m probably the only liberal person that they are forced to interact with. So, immediately, they react like ‘MERICA! and wanna fight me. Truly, I thought the video was funny and appropriate for a lot of my young female and male feminist Facebook friends....
Glorious foot rub
Is glorious. Thank god for a good Hubz.
