I know I’m late. And before you go scrolling down looking for a pic, let me stop you. For whatever reason, my memory card is not being read by my netbook so I cannot upload my belly pic. But it’s uber showing now! I’ll post when I get back to NY and my usual computer, or figure out how to get this working.
EDITED: I’m an idiot, I just used my phone – DUH! (i’m on the netbook so I can’t tell what stuff actually looks like…forgive me if it’s huge…or tiny)
My weight is still the same which is still insane to me. I’m in fl now with my gram trying to feed me every hour on the hour so I KNOW I’ll start gaining soon. I feel SO much better tho, no barfing, only some nausea when I smell certain things but passes after the smell is gone. The super tiredness/lethargia is back in a major way, but I’d rather be sleepy than doubled over a toilet anyday! My belly is big guys! It’s really poking out. I’m totally pregnant.
I had my first encounter with a belly-rubbing stranger! Wait…let me tell you how I came to meet her first.
So i’m in a window seat on the plane… a lady comes and sits in the middle seat, then a skinny guy at the aisle. I fall asleep and am wakened by an overwhelming smell of fish and need to vomit…immediately. I rip my eye cover off and say omg is that fish? excuse me i gotta go to the bathroom.
The skinny man is already up outta his seat and 2 rows forward. His eyes were huge. I know he was scared I was gunna let loose right there haha. The evil fish-eating lady just turns and looks at me. i said i have to go to the bathroom RIGHT NOW, and i make the mistake of inhaling in her direction and almost barfed all over her (i should have…but then I’d have to smell that the whole planeride) she shifted in her seat and goes “can you hop over me” I said NO and she slowly started to pack her fish up and move out of the row.
I sped her up by pretending I was going to vomit on her. You know…making those sounds/faces lol. (and yes people were staring because i was not quiet about it. i didn’t care at all)
I got to the back of the plane and after using the bathroom just decided to stand around and wait for her fishy meal to end. That’s where I met bellyrubber. She was a really nice woman in her 50s who was just a rubbin’ and a chattin.’ I got her whole life story, and her two kids’ life stories too. She was really sweet. So sweet and seemingly well meaning that I didn’t even correct her when she said Embry’s definitely a girl since the fish smell made me sick. lol
I always thought I’d swat away random hands that would try to touch my belly. But I think I was just so happy that other people could notice I’m pregnant that I didn’t give a damn.
The flight attendants were really sweet and were cursing out the fish-bringing lady. And kept going to check and see when the coast was clear. I sat in the back with them for a good 45 minutes talking and BSing.
It was the first time I felt officially pregnant.
I’ll never take a window seat again.
