Today I weighed in at 101.2. I weighed myself yesterday, but I forgot to write it down and don’t remember what it was. I read that during pregnancy the blood in your body increases and it is flowing toward your placenta and that may cause you to lose some short term memory due to lack of blood flow to the brain. So if for some reason I am not remembering everything like I usually do, that’s why. I have had the strongest craving for salt. You know that beer salt that normal people would just use to put a couple of shakes in their beers? Well I have been eating that like it were candy or something. I love the lime salt. Today my mom probably saved me from a salt overload and took to me to lunch at Eddie’s Taco House. I had three cheese enchiladas. I didn’t eat the beans or rice, I gave it to Justin. Your daddy never lets food go to waste.
In other news Justin got a new job today. He said that he did a great job in the interview and that he was confident and was able to answer every question that they asked perfectly. I am really proud of him. He will always do what he has to do, to care of his family. Also I showed Justin this picture today and he laughed his butt off! So glad that I can still make him smile over little things.
I told my dad today that I am pregnant. I didn’t think that he would be as excited or thrilled, but he surprised me. He told both me and Justin “Congratulations!” It was probably the most heartfelt response so far. Most people have been excited, but he was really excited. My dad has never been the perfect dad, but I don’t feel that holding a grudge forever is the right thing to do. People make mistakes and if you love them and they are important to you, it is important to forgive them and move past it. On the other hand it is also important to not be naive and gullible. Regardless you should always try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I just hope that my dad gets his life together and everything works out for him.
I talked to Amanda today as well. She sent me a text that said, “Hey preggers, how u feeling?” She is and always will be my best friend. I just wish she were here, I would totally drag her to the appointment with us! I told her that she should get pregnant too! She said hahaha you’re funny. So I am going to take that as a maybe.
This is me and Amanda when I still worked at Chuy's!
Our first OB doctor’s appointment is tomorrow at 10:30. I hope I remember to ask him what I can do to sleep better at night. Before I was pregnant it was nothing for me to fall asleep within a matter of minutes. Now I fall asleep, but I don’t stay asleep. And I love my sleep. Although I guess I am not alone in this because Justin didn’t sleep good last night either due to heart burn. Poor guy, he should see someone about that.
Well that’s all I got for now. I will write more soon.
