I am 10 weeks along, not very far, but my stomach is already sticking out. Gone are the days with the first baby where you could not show for 4 or 5 months. I have had A LOT of food aversions which is a new experience for me:) and ridiculous cravings. I am the cliche pregnant lady that changes her mind every five seconds about what she is craving. "Sam I NEED a Meximelt from Taco Bell, no, Pad Thai, no, fresh bread with cheese, no, Thom Ka Gai soup..ahhhh!" I'm crazy. I woke up the other night at 2am really nausiated, but really hungry. Every food I thought about made me want to puke, but I had major fasting pains and had to eat. The only thing that sounded good was Reese's Puffs Cereal, which I probably hadn't eaten in 2 years. So heroic Sam went to the grocery store and got me a box at 2 in the morning. Once I am awake I have a really hard time falling asleep so I just stayed up eating Cereal and watching "17 Again" until I dozed off on the couch. It was a great night:)
This pregnancy has been different than my others, I am more nausiated, but still I am convinced it is a boy. With the other 3 I was sure they were girls so maybe I'm just reading my intuition wrong.
If it is a boy we already have a boy name picked out. His name would be West, which is a name in the Hirt family tree.
I have a bunch of girls names I like, but I think I have had them in my mind for so many years that I am sick of most of them. The ones that we like for now are these:
Vivian and call her Vivi(I like this one, sam isn't sold)
Violet (I used to like this, but am a little sick of it)
Dorothy call her Dot (Sam Loves this, but I am not convinced)
Zuzu (I like this because I love "It's a Wonderful Life" and I think the Zuzu's petals scene is so sweet and it makes me happy, but I also realize it is bizzare, but maybe in an amazing way. Sam isn't there....yet:)
Well there you go. My brain doesn't function correctly when I am pregnant. I have anxiety and weirdness, so I am a little sick of myself, but at least I have an excuse to be crazy instead of just being crazy for no reason, like usual.
