Dreams, Big Comments, Sick, and My Birthday!

Last night I dreamed that I forgot to breastfeed the baby.  Talk about craziness.  My dreams are so random and vivid when I remember them.  I can still see myself holding the baby in the house I grew up in with my Mom and Stepdad.  I had been using a breast pump (which was uncomfortable in the dream) but had never actually fed the baby.  I also had to give someone else some of my milk because they were sick.  (??) Dreams aren't supposed to make sense, but this one was weird!

There's a Moe's Southwest Grill two doors down from the store I work in.  Jen is out sick with the flu (please pray for her because she's SICK), so it was easier for me to grab a burrito and just eat at the store in case we got busy.  Well, I went in to grab my lunch and one of the girls in there acted excited to see me.  She was glad to see that I was still pregnant, but then started commenting on my size.  She asked me if I was carrying twins and then said that I was so big to be almost 21 weeks.  Insert crying here.  I told my boss what she said and I won't repeat his comment here because it wasn't nice.  He made me feel much better and again told me that I looked great.  We had a customer in the store at that time and she was appalled that someone would comment on my size like that.  I've always been consumed with my appearance, but knew that it would be different once I was pregnant.  Yes, I have obviously gained weight-mostly in my stomach.  It just hurt my feelings that someone could be so rude and say something so ugly.  (She also used to ask me every time I went to Moe's if I was pregnant yet).  I guess you shouldn't be surprised at the stuff that some people say.

Speaking of people being sick, Brandon's sick.  He's not felt well for over a week now, but he's going to go to the doctor tomorrow.  He woke up in a coughing fit late Tuesday night and ended up sleeping on the couch.  He didn't even come to bed last night because he doesn't want to get me sick.

Only 3 more days until my BIRTHDAY! =)  I will be turning 27.  We're not doing anything too special, but I requested going out to dinner Saturday night.  We have church on my actual birthday and are helping in the nursery during the second service.  Then we have a meeting that afternoon for everyone who helps with the kids, so my day is already planned.  This year, I only asked for items for Ellie.  It's so funny that I've always loved getting presents, but now I get more excited at opening packages for her!


  1. Wow I don't think you look big at all. I mean you look like most woman do at 20 weeks.

    Hope Brandon feels better after seeing the doctor and getting some meds.

  2. You look terrific, IMO. I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

  3. You look great for your stage of pregnancy. Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

  4. That's so shitful of someone to comment about your size in such a way. No class! Every photo you have put up has shown a gradual change, and certainly nothing that would warrant a comment like you got about having twins! You look great!

    You've got so many things to look forward to, and your birthday sounds like it'll be a fun one :-)
