Pregnant Confessions

Father forgive me, for...

1. In the past 3 months my children have eaten enough cold cereal to feed a small 3rd world country for a year.
2. I managed to put off packing my hospital bag by deciding it was suddenly VERY important that we re-decorate the bathroom.
3. I made my husband knock on my neighbor's door at 9pm to borrow a drill for the bathroom re-do (It was THAT important).
4. I ate 9 Klondike ice cream cones in one day... all by myself.
5. 4 times now I've promised the nurse that I would leave a pee sample before I left the office... and I never did.
6. I skipped church last Sunday (but it was worth it as I managed to accumulate 1 1/2 hours of sleep during that time.
7. I have eaten lunch meat, feta cheese, shellfish, and lots of other No-No foods. BUT I didn't color my hair like I wanted to, so I'm hoping that counts for something.
8. I have decided to adopt the DVD player as a family member to rationalize the amount of time my youngest child spends with it.
9. Showers have become optional for me.
10. I just licked chocolate off my keyboard (it fell off my Drumstick ice cream cone).

Oh, girl you crack me up! The DVD one is my fave. I should have the same rule. Except I'm not pregnant, lol.

Tirzah said...

Ah, the joys of pregnancy. You can get away with all of those things!

I have such a hard time sitting in church for 3 hours!

Magirk said...

Hahahahahaha :D

When I was 7 months pregnant with the twins, I would tell the nurses, 'Here's the little bit of pee I could reach, if you want any more, I purposely didn't flush the toilet yet, you're welcome to go fishing for more.'

And uh, I need me some of that Drumstick stuff.... (an actual one for myself, not the dribble from your computer!) ;-)

Amber M. said...

Too, too funny. I'm with you...there is a whole seperate set of rules that apply during the lovliness of pregnancy.

Erika said...

Oh...is #9 wrong? I've been doing that for at least the last 9 months...

Shimmy Mom said...

LOL, Oh I think we've all done similar things while pregnant. But thank you for letting me laugh about them.
Have a great day!

Amy Y said...

I had a tiny glass of plum wine the other day... shhhhh :)

MiaKatia said...

Oh man I just laughed! How did the redecorate turn out?

LaDonnaMobile said...

OKay, that is the funniest blog posting I have ever read . . . probably because I can so totally relate! You rock! :)

Misty said...

I am laughing so hard I have to pee. Pee in the bathroom before it runs down my leg - thanks motherhood. You are a treasure.

The Girl Next Door said...

These are awesome confessions! Somehow I lost track of your blog and am catching up - sadly just about the time you will take your break. I hope Baby comes all safe and sound. Your kids' father's day photo is adorable! All of them!! Good luck...think I'll go eat another bowl of chocolate chip with whipped cream and sprinkles. Damned, that's why I stopped reading your blog....

Rachel said...

Thanks for the laugh! I can totally relate - and yes, you get a totally different set of rules (or excuses?) for pregnancy!

Seriously though... get that bag packed! You're gonna mentally will this baby out quick!

:)

Lisa said...

You are hilarious!!

Lisa said...

You and me babe...but I'm still only 25 weeks. I have a ways to go. Good luck this week.

WomensDaily said...

I think you set a record with eating Klondike cones!

Cynthia said...

Hi! I came across your blog recently, and I enjoy reading it. Great post...I'm glad to be reminded I'm not the only one! My 3rd is 7 months old, and showers are still optional for me!

Victoria said...

Love it! love it! love it! you crazy knocked up hussy.

Amy said...

You are hysterical! I love your humor!

Richelle said...

You are too funny! But totally justified. I hope this last little while goes well for you (and that you get your bag packed before you have to go to the hospital!).

Laura said...

I'm so there too.

Mine for the day:

Father, forgive me for not commenting on any of the posts I read... I'm just too dang lazy.

Sonja said...

Forgiven.

:)

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

You licked chocolate off the keyboard? That sounds totally reasonable to me :)

The Lazy Organizer said...

You deserve all that and more. I won't tell you how many Creamies I've eaten in the last two days. I have to sneak them when the kids are outside and then hide the evidence.

Jeanette said...

You are too funny!
After my baby was born my son started calling the DVD player mommy because he was spending more time with it than me...
So do you eat the lunch meat, feta and shellfish all at once? :-)

Michal said...

just tell yourself it could be so much worse. of course, that's almost always true, but it helps me feel better about myself somedays. for instance, at least your kids are eating cold cereal. that's better than some things--or going hungry! and when you licked up that little bit of melted chocolate goodness, i'm sure that you were just doing your part to keep a clean house!:)

Shannon said...

In all that you have going on, you still have time to make us laugh! Thanks ( :

I'll be thinking of you in the coming days and hoping for a healthy happy baby and easy (if there can be such a thing) delivery!

God Bless!

natals said...

Not much to say that hasn't been said! funny, funny stuff. Congrats on the baby!

Family Adventure said...

I lick chocolate ice cream off my keyboard all the time. It's too good to waste :)

So...this post was from Monday...hmmm...ANY NEWS?!?!?!?

And *that's* why we love you. And, are you telling me there's something wrong with consuming only cold-cereal? No way!
