20 week update!

Caution: this post may make you uncomfortable..... :)

I am officially 20 weeks pregnant- HALF WAY!
During the past few weeks, I have made some discoveries. Things that current/post-preggo women don't tell you about. I'm not sure if they are too embarrassed to share it, or if they (secretly) want you to freak out when crazy stuff starts happening. I'm thinking it may be a mixture of both.
BUT lucky for you, I am all about being open. Nothing embarrasses me....I guess being a nurse does that to you. AND they DON'T teach you about this in nursing school either. So why not share the glories? Sure, every pregnancy is different, but just in case you (too) think your nips are falling off one day, I'm here to help.

Discovery #1: Oh my gosh I just peed my pants.
At first I wasn't sure what was going on. You know that "OHH NOOOO" feeling you get when you are out somewhere (unprepared) and just KNOW you started your period?  I experienced a very similar feeling when I was sitting in class and felt a very uncomfortable yet familiar (I guess my brain still remembers what it feels like to pee in diapers) feeling. No, my whole bladder didn't give out. I didn't have a wet spot on my butt or have pee running down my leg, BUT just enough pee leaked out for me to think to myself "did I just pee my pants? Yes, I just peed my pants." It's become an every day occurrence now, and there's not a thing you can do about it....so my solution? I bought some SWEET panty liners (that I have also seen in my grandma's bathroom on many occasions). Sexy!

Discovery #2: Oh my gosh my nipples are falling off.
One night, I was in the bathroom, performing my nightly ritual of bathing myself in cocoa butter...when I just happened to catch a glimpse of my nips in the mirror.   My first thought was, "wow, they are as black as coal..." My second thought was, "....and as big as a piece of bologna" and my last thought was, "....what....what is that?!?!?" So what was it? Well, since they are black as coal, it wasn't difficult to spot the white crustations on the tip. I grabbed a washcloth and rubbed them. To my HORROR, the tip (which was in reality a giant crustation) FELL OFF and left a LARGE HOLE. I panicked. I called my mom. AKA: the boobie expert. I explained everything to her and as she held back her laughter, she assured me that my nips were NOT falling off...that the white crustation was dried boobie juice, and that the hole was my nip dilating to get ready to feed the baby.  Double sexy!

I'll just leave you with those for today. I don't want to freak anyone out. And honestly, I don't mind my pee leakage or my weird looking, crusty nips. Why? Because there's a tiny human in my uterus....and I'm madly in love with it!

We get to find out the gender this SATURDAY!

Hi there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

It's genuinely very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I just use world wide web for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date news.

I'm really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
