Five Question Friday and other nonsensical information

Let me start with an apology. I have been utter shite at commenting back and reading other blogs this week. If you feel neglected - you are in good company. I haven't been online much and I hope to catch up with all of you soon. I went to bed at 8pm last night after two days of not getting nearly enough sleep for a preggo lady. Those ten hours I got were divine and I feel fricken amazing now. The heat down here has been unbearable and mix that in with a lack of sleep and you get one tired lady. I have already given my dad strict instructions to not be outside at all today because it is supposed to be disgusting out. Poor Joey doesn't have a choice. Wednesday he came home and passed out around 5pm then slept until 6 the next morning - that's how badly the heat wiped him out. I am actually hoping for a tropical storm to give us a break.

Thursday meant 14 weeks for Jellybean and me. Here's the obligatory belly shot. I had to use hubby's camera so the quality kind of sucks. Sorry bout that.

I feel very preggo lately. My back pain has returned with a vengeance. Here's a cute update I pulled off a message board I belong to -

How far along are you? 14 weeks!!!

Total weight gain/loss? I think I'm still around 6lbs or so

Waist measurement (if you want to share!) I have no idea - its bigger lol. I don't know what it was before either though

Upcoming Appointments? 8/10 OB, 8/18 anatomy scan

Are you in Maternity clothes? A few shirts and I really need to find some pants that will fit me comfortably

How are you sleeping? Like crap and I'm not getting enough sleep either. Makes me super crabby.

Food cravings? comfort food lately, mashed potatoes with gravy, chicken pot pie, etc

Food Aversions? overly sweet things - like if my ice tea is too sweet

Pregnancy symptoms? Fatigue, a little nausea at times, peeing, bloating, I could go on....

Weekly BOOO HOOOO? My dad's bp dropped suddenly yesterday and he hasn't been feeling too hot with this heat. I'm trying to convince him to file for disability but now I know where my stubbornness came from!

Weekly WHOO HOOO? I'm actually starting to look pregnant!

Have you picked out a theme for the nursery? We went back to Classic Winnie the Pooh since someone is giving us all her bedding and stuff.

What irritating advice/comments have you already gotten this pregnancy? Sleep now. You won't get to later! (Really, you don't say!) You think you have a bump now? Just wait. (Yea, I was assuming it would grow...)

Now on to 5QF -

My Little Life

Mama M over at My Little Life hosts 5QF so go visit her and join in the fun!

1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?

I'm messy - especially now that I'm pregnant. I flail, pull covers on and off, look for comfortable positions, adjust pillows, etc. The animals start fleeing the bed for safety. the worst part is Joey is the same. Its a common occurrence in our home to hear sorry muttered through out the night as we mistakenly (or sometimes on purpose if someone is snoring loudly!!) kick, punch and elbow each other.

2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more ________________.

Social. We are so busy with work and our house that we rarely get to hang out. I'm hoping to change that soon as we search for a church and get out more.

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?

How overwhelming owning your own house can be at times. We have lists miles long of what we would like to do and a serious lack of funds to do it with!

4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?

I've had lots of great finds from furniture to decorations. I can't think of a best thing at the moment but I know that I'll be adding to my collection soon. I'm hoping to find a sectional on craigslist soon.

5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?
I just ate some doughnuts and a cold glass of milk so right now- nothing. For lunch I want comfort food again. I totally see mashed potatoes in my future!
