A glimpse at the crazy lady

So, I finally went and got a haircut.  The last time I had a haircut was in January.  Since then, I've just trimmed it myself, and I was beyond hating it by now.  I'm loving the new cut, but wondering if I should've gone a little shorter... especially with my tendency to wait too long between cuts.  What do you think?


Next up... the big ultrasound is coming up.  I'm 19 weeks today, and my ultrasound is next Friday.  I'm sort of hoping for a particular gender, but more out of rational convenience than really wishing for one or the other.  :)  I'll let you know. 

Last up, just a fun photo I created in photoshop today.  The very front picture was me at 8 weeks.  I felt like I was showing at that point (well bloating, but still, I was beginning to LOOK different).  The final bit of belly you see is my belly today.  Baby seems to be getting big, and I'm finally beginning to feel little kicks. 





I'm trying to enjoy the flutters and the relative easiness of the second trimester... especially since I intend for this to be our last pregnancy.  LOL.  Its nice to have a bit of energy back, but I wish there was a break from the insane pregnancy hormones too!  I still feel like I'm struggling a bit much with those.  For example, my birthday was about a week ago.  We had family in town and they surprised me with a new closet shelving system for my workspace.  Benson spent most of the day installing it, then we all went out to dinner at a restaurant.  Overall, it was really a good day.  I had even gone on a date with Benson earlier in the month  to a "They Might Be Giants" concert.  So, I really had no reason to complain.  However, ON my birthday, there was no birthday cake, and no singing.  I thought I was totally fine with it...  until 2 days later.  I totally bawled like a baby to my husband about poor me and my lack of cake.  My good husband caught my ridiculous pregnant "hint" and bought a cake and sang to me with the kids the next night.  What a good man.  :)  I instantly felt a hundred times better.  If it isn't obvious, I tend to just blow everything out of proportion lately.  A birthday cake was an easy fix, but worrying about the future is a whole different ball game.  I won't go there today... then you'd see what a real nutcase of a pregnant lady I can be!  Just enjoy your little laugh at my expense, and I'll hopefully be back on Friday with some news!  (Pray for uncrossed legs!  LOL!)
