Wanna be my friend?

OH hai!

So, I am kinda doing good. Michael swore last night I was "nesting." I guess I was? I just felt like I need to scrub the whole house down... it needed to be done. Whatever.

I gotz an odd question for you seasoned moms!

Whats up with the mucus plug? Do you remember losing it? And how long after you lost it, did you go into labor?


Man. I wish I knew people around where I live. On days like today, where I completely scrubbed the house, and there is nothing to do, I just want to hang out with someone. Unfortunately, neither my sister or I have a car today to visit. We'll have to walk to each other's house, and its over 90 degrees... and lets face it, what preggo chick wants to walk in that temperature!


So, here is a pregnant belly shot for you!

Oh, and did you know I have a HUGE back tattoo. Yep. I drew that guys! Its a tattoo I got done in honor of my daddy. The lion is because my dad was a very strong man, and very brave, especially near the end of his cancer. The flowers (birds of paradise) was my father's favorite flower. And yep, my dad was a cool man to have a favorite flower. The vine/hobbs was cause my dad loved beer and would even brew some. Miss him tons.

He would have been mad at me, if he knew I got that tattoo for him. haha.

    and the mucus plug thing...i didnt ever notice losing mine but i was induced so maybe thats why.

    I don't remember loosing my mucous plug with either of my pregnancies (which I'm not really complaining about).  It can signal that labor is in the works, but it can be a couple weeks or a couple days - in other words, it's not a predictable sign.  I hear you about being bored.  I don't have many friends and the one I do hang out with has 3 kids so it's kinda hard for us to get together as much as we'd like.  Hang in there!!  That tattoo is gorgeous!  I don't know that your dad would be mad at you for doing that.  Well, maybe at first, but then he'd get over it.

  3. Hey! Do you have a blog? I've been trying to figure that out.

  4. I know exactly how you feel about just wanting to hang out with someone. My boyfriend is around a lot, but sometimes I just want to get out and be with people other than my boyfriend...though of course I love him, but you know what I mean right? If we did live closer to each other, this problem would be fixed. I hope you find lots and lots of fun things to do to take up your time...besides cleaning your whole apartment. Why not make a video vlog? I think your make up is always so pretty. Share? :) Also, that tattoo that you drew for your father is pretty amazing. I love all of the meanings behind each item. Hope you have a fun filled day!

  7. I didn't lose my plug with my first until I was actually in labor at the hospital.  The second it came out over the course of a few days but then I was induced because of high bp.  Not very encouraging, sorry!  I remember those last few weeks quite vividly.  I just wanted it over and I didn't care how.  I kept saying I was going to get some castor oil, but I was too chicken.  How many weeks until your due date?

  8. I have 7 wks. But I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead, and I think I'm starting to lose my plug. I don't think I'll be going into labor for a few more weeks, but I can't help but get excited.

  11. first off, what the hell is a mucus plug and why are so many ladies so open about talking about losing theirs?  i am never having a kid!  i was starting to warm up to the idea (even had a dream about it last night) but ewwwwwww....really?!  2.  you look really pretty, i really wish i could rock short hair...not sure about VA but in IA we have TONS of humidity in the summer and my hair is already a frizzy mess and it's longer...it'd be straight up fro if it was short...3.  i love the story of your tatt and VERY cool that you drew that yourself, you're talented! and lastly....i moved to an area where i don't have any friends at all...and to be totally honest the girls in this town are all catty bitches...so i'm pretty much in the same boat...if i'm not cleaning i'm more than likely on the net...so we can be friends.  imma e-mail you my addy for postcards...we can totes be penpals.

  12. ... tooooo bad I'm super stoked about this postcard exchange. I've got another buddy in London... and I love her. And YES! Pregnancy is gross. I laugh when all the women talk about how beautiful it is. I feel sorry for my husband, it can't be sexy for him. A mucus plug is a plug for your cervix... thats all I'm saying doll.

  13. Man, I wish that I could just hang out with my blogger friends! At least I'll know I'll like them!

  14. I know. I'm always around my hubs... and I'm sure thats probably why we get on each other's nerves a lot.

  15. Your make up looks gorgeous!! I love pinks and golds together! & I didn't know you drew your tattoo!! I've always wondered what it meant, I love that it is symbolic of your dad. How tragic that he died at such a young age:( I wish I lived near you! I need some friendz. Oh and I work at an OB/GYN office and sorry deary but you could be preggers for a few weeks after losing the plug. Now if your water broke thats another story. I hope your doing good girl!

  16. Haha! That's sweet/funny that you got a tattoo for your dad and he would've been mad about it.  I looove your makeup today! It's so gorgeous!

  17. PLUG IT ALL BACK IN!!!  You are not going to brew a Halloween baby if it's not safely in there!  (p.s wtf is it? And why does it fall out?)
    And I love the lion dad on your back, it's probably the most well drawn and most meaningful one I have ever seen, and I love the size of it.  I see you don't do small tattoos and that's how it should be I recon.. If you are going to do it, do it right! Right?
    P.S (again) I love beer too!!! And Lions!!! And Flowers! So that's also why I love it.  
    PPS, throughout this whole comment, I've lost the page by scrolling downup/updown so many times, I'm surprised I can still type.. Lion OS is giving me grief, promise it gets better. up is down, down is up, and four finger swipe doesn't exist anymore....  MACH LAV! (that's how southerners say stuff over here)  AV A NYCE DAY DARLIN', LUK AFTA YA PLAG x

  18. HANG ON!  WOW, just found out I can scroll sideways with Lion.  coooool, like a phone, but on my lap.

  19. You can customize the gestures in Lion by going to System Preferences and then Trackpad. You can change the gestures to a four-finger swipe if you like and also change the scrolling back to normal. Just a little tid bit from your neighborly IT guy. Have fun! My tats are small and are very jailhouse/ghetto. No I have not been to prison contrary to popular belief.

  20. I feel like the mucus plug is this totally illusive magical thing that never really comes out to show itself and doctors/books just tell us about it to keep us crazy and checking for it on the daily :)

    also, i love that you still do your makeup...I'm so hot and lazy now I barely ever make an "effort". And you're tattoo is gorgeous, your dad must have been a totally Rad dude, especially to have two awesome daughters like you and Jess  <3
