Look how fast they grow!


11w5d

Since our last u/s which was at 7w2d our little blob is now a baby!  Arms waving, stretching and rolling and the whole nine yards.  We have been told the nub is a girl nub but we won't know for sure for another 8 weeks or so!  Look at 'her', I can't wait to meet our child!

Excuse me!

This morning I read that Kim Kardashian of all people had posted on Twitter about how disgusted she was at a mom nursing in a cafe where she was eating...insisting she covered up!

She added that the mom also changed the baby's diaper at the table which to be fair the cafe staff should have said something about that but Kim, to add insult to injury defended her initial comment by INSISTING that the mom should have still covered up because her sister does too!

Well Kim I guess you are the poster child for why we shouldn't feed formula!  Considering how you flaunt skin I am surprised you even had the nerve to insist other women should cover up while you can flaunt as much as you want to where you want!

Can you say pot-kettle-black?

Happy Father's Day

Just a quick Happy Father's day to all the dads out there.  Have a great day!

1 head Iceberg Lettuce
2 Types of leaf lettuce
Spinach (and lots of it!)
Kale
Beets
Cauliflower
Broccoli
1 Zucchini
2 Onions
Rhubarb
Sugar Snap Peas

My share is $15 a week and it runs through the Fall.  I can't wait to see what we will get next week.  I know we will be eating a LOT of salads this week!!

Bit controversial but I have to...

I am so tired of people who say they are at peace with their decision to not breastfeed and circumcise yet can not accept that breastfeeding is natural as are uncut foreskins!

I don't care if you don't want to breastfeed and want to cut your child but to turn around and say breastfeeding ISN'T natural and uncut penis' are ugly because that was the way they were made is INSANITY!

Does anyone else feel this way?  I'm not being mean to those that have accepted they can not for whatever reason and would love to have been able to but it REALLY really frustrates me when I hear these women whine about 'oh it hurts' and 'it so wasn't me' then turn around and tell someone that breastfeeding is not natural!

The whole circumcision thing has me thrown completely.  So many people claim it's not clean, UGLY and un-natural to have an uncut penis.  yet how many have actually STOPPED to consider that god made the penis with a foreskin and it is pure cosmetic surgery to remove it and to allow cosmetic surgery on their child how un-natural that is???

I'm sorry if offended anyone in this vent but I'm tired of being told these things over and over like they are trying to brainwash me by saying it enough times.  Guess what I didn't join the cool group in High School for a reason.

Yuck!

I really am not a big fan of the first trimester.  First you have so many unknowns and uncertainties and if you, like me have ever had any first trimester losses or beyond, you will know it is VERY stressful.  Second the nausea...oh how I hate thee.  I can't cook because smells make me nauseas, I can't eat because everything sounds disgusting.  and Third, pure exhaustion!  I can't get anything done because I am exhausted all the time!  I can deal with up every three hours better than this nonsense makes no sense exhaustion!

I am on 400mg of Prometrium for low progesterone which I am pretty sure is what exacerbates the last 2 symptoms.  I also have so much spotting this pregnancy I am plain tired and frustrated.  Oh how I wish I was in the 2nd trimester already!
