11 Confessions

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
These are always fun to read and with my out of control hormones right now I've got a lot to say!




1. I haven't cooked a healthy dinner since I got pregnant. First it was the nausea and food aversions, now it's the exhaustion and lack of motivation. I hate to think how much money I've spent on take out in these past 5 months. 


2. I'm started to get really annoyed when people ask to see my bump and then I show them and their response is "Oh. Well it'll get bigger!" Um no shit! It's like people think the moment you find out you're pregnant you just magically look 37 weeks overnight. I feel like I have to justify myself and then that makes me even more mad. I'm realizing people are always going to have a comment about how you look pregnant and you're either going to be too big or too small in their eyes. But as long as I'm happy with how I look, that's all that matters.


3. I'm so over my job right now and would be gone if I wasn't pregnant. I hate that because I've only been there for a year and I loved it at first but it's changed a lot. I haven't even been looking for new jobs because I know no one would want to hire the pregnant girl!


4. Sometimes I start to tear up when I think about how Theo and I are Pixie's world. When we're at work all day she's just sitting by that door waiting for us to come home. She's our first baby and we just love her so much. Everyone keeps asking me how I think she's going to do with the baby and I really don't know. I gotta be honest, I'm pretty worried she's going to step on him on her way to scarf down her food! Nothing comes between my girl and her food.


5. I've started to buy baby clothes but in the back of my mind I think I'm going to jinx myself. I know, what a horrible way of thinking. I guess because everything has gone really well so far I'm worried the second half of pregnancy won't be as easy. I hate not having control over all of this!


6. I get jealous of people who know how to do yard work because I have no idea what to do. Which is funny because my mom is fantastic in the yard. Everything we ever plant just dies so I give up. I do love fresh flowers in my house and can keep those alive for weeks. 


7. I had so many plans to eat healthy and all organic while being pregnant but instead I think I've eaten the most unhealthiest foods in my life. I know being pregnant isn't a pass to eat all you want but it sure makes it easy when deciding if you want seconds on dessert or not!


8. We've started to tell friends and family the name we've picked out for the baby and I'm starting to regret telling people so soon. Although most people are polite there just has to be those few who choose to tell us what they really think of the name.  I've always had the mentality of even if I don't like the name someone has picked out I don't have to use it so what do I care. Just say "that's cute!" or nod your head but telling us you think our kid will get beat up if we name him that is just mean. Keep your rude opinions to yourself. 


9. Lately I've been having the hardest time finishing one book. I'm reading three books on my Kindle but instead I should finish one before buying another. I tend to get excited about anything new and then don't follow through with it.


10. I could sit on the couch with the TV on and play around on my phone for hours. I start looking up one thing, then that brings up another topic, and before I know it 2 hours has passed. Not good when it's your only day off and the house needs to be cleaned!


11. Tomorrow is our anatomy ultrasound scan with the high risk doctor and I'm pretty nervous about it. I just hope our baby boy is healthy and everything looks good. 



Alright, now it's your turn. Tell me some of your confessions!

  1. You'd be surprised about folks hiring pregnant ladies - I moved to a different state in the beginning of my pregnancy and decided to get a part time teaching job so I wouldn't just be sitting home growing a belly (which would've been wonderful too in hindsight haha) i was offered four different jobs and it wasn't a issue to any of them!

  3. I know what you mean about Pixie. I worry about my dog when I finally get pregnant too. He's my baby and really doesnt know any better when it comes to getting excited because mommy and daddy are home or its food time. You just gotta watch both of them and hope for the best! And sorry to hear youre not happy with your job right now. I really hope that gets better or you find something else! Good luck tomorrow!

  4. Zack and I were randomly talking about baby names we liked a couple years ago in front his family. I was shocked at the rude comment made by his mother when I said the name I've always loved for a girl, and her and I have a pretty good relationship too! I learned right then and there that when we have kids I'm keeping my mouth shut about EVERYTHING because apparently other people don't know how to! Ugh. So I really feel for you, some people have no tact. Really sorry to hear how unhappy you are with your job too, I hope thing get better for you!

  6. I can't wait to hear which name you chose for your little boy! I am sure it's perfect. I can't believe some people have the audacity to hate on someone else's name choice! I would lose it. Maybe that's why so many people wait to share it!

  7. I swear all the crazies come out when women are pregnant. And that was incredibly rude of whomever told you that your child would be beat up for the name you were thinking of! I also got a job when I was entering my third trimester, depends on where you look, but some people see pregnancy not as disability, and are willing to work with you on the maternity leave.

    And don't worry too much about how Pixie will interact with the baby, dogs are very adaptable. Both Laura from Happily Ever Parker and Christina from North Carolina Charm have big dogs and their dogs are perfectly fine with the little one. We have a cat and I'd say Sophie is more abusive to the cat than the cat is to her. She loves hugging or trying to lay on the cat.

  8. I think dogs just somehow know/sense to be more gentle with babies and kids! Brady is a W-I-L-D man but we were around kids all weekend and he was an angel with them, almost like a different dog! And so sorry to hear you aren't liking your job right now, hoping it gets better for you!

  9. i hate yard work too. lee is always like "let's go weed" and i'm all like "Can't we pay someone?" haha oops. keeping you in mind tomorrow for your scan! hoping all good things!!

  10. I can't seem to keep my outdoor plants and flowers alive either! Indoor flowers it is. I can't believe people have been rude about the name. They won't be able to say anything once he's born and is perfect! Good luck with your ultra sound!

  11. I do think dogs are incredibly adaptable, but I'm a little nervous for how this will rock Roscoes world. We actually are going to have a trainer come in and help us with a few things to get him (and us) prepared and just establish new boundaries.

    And, I can't believe you're getting ANY negative feedback on your name. It's a fantastic name and I can't believe anyone would have the guts to say otherwise!

  12. Uh, I'm not pregnant and #4 is so true for me. Just thinking about my sweet pup at home, all he wants to do is hang out with us ... seriously, I could tear up typing this. Clearly I have issues :) and pms .... cough.

  13. I missed the name!? You'll have to email me. I'm sure it's just precious and all the thought that goes into a name is so personal that I'd hope no one is that rude. Good grief! Just tell yourself at least dogs have zero sense of time; she's waiting for you, but doesn't know if it's been 20 minutes of 8 hours ;)

  14. I hate any pregnancy negativity! Especially about your bump or the name. Rude! Also, you look amazing! Feel free to indulge and enjoy this time!

  15. I know I mentioned it before but I LOVE your pregnancy updates! I swear, I have the exact same experiences and it makes me feel better to know I am not the only one! I was a really healthy eater before getting pregnant and watched my carbs and ate tons of veggies.....I swore once I was pregnant I'd be even healthier. Hahaha...I laugh at myself as I eat more carbs and have issues with most vegetables! And ditto to the lack of motivation on rare days off.....I'm a nurse as well so I find that if I am not working I just want to sit on the couch and search Amazon for cute baby stuff....what chores?! lol! Thanks again for sharing the honest truth about pregnancy!! :)

  16. Best of luck with the scan. People can be so rude, don't let them upset you. My friend wouldn't tell anyone what her baby's name was going to be because she knew some people (in her family) would make comments about it. People can be such jerks.

  17. Good luck tomorrow! I’m sure everything will be fine. I always read at least two books at a time if it makes you feel any better!

  18. Hope everything goes well today. And yes people's comments when you're pregnant are he worst - they can be so rude!

  19. Oh girl! I think you look fantastic! When we told my mom the name she asked if I was joking (repeatedly) and finally I had to say you're being so rude!

  20. Our dog was so amazing with Abby and would lie outside her room all the time. Very protective yet not jealous. I've heard bringing the blanket home from the hospital with the baby's scent on it before you come home helps but we didn't even need to do that. She just knew. We purposely haven't told a soul the name for #3 because we had a hard enough time deciding and I don't want anyone's comments to ruin it for me. People you know and don't know most definitely feel the need to interject themselves into your pregnant life! I'm shocked how many strangers ask me incredibly personal questions and feel very defensive! I was super healthy for the first 2/3 of my pregnancy and now feel so lazy that I would either way takeout or cereal every meal if I could get away with it so do enjoy it while it's just you and Theo and you don't have to worry about setting an example for your kids!
