Just another random Friday post...

I'm not going to lie...this week has not been easy by any respect.  With T gone since Sunday (coming home tomorrow...finally!) and not being able to even have a phone conversation with him for two straight's been kind of lonely around the T and Nain household.  I'm way too early along in the pregnancy to be feeling the baby moving around in there, so it feels like it's just me in this big house. 
It isn't to say I haven't done my best to keep busy this week.  I've tried my hardest to stick to my motivation monday goal, and I've gotten three critiques done this week (only four more to go!  ha), and I haven't really had the chance to write.  My hope was to do that last night until nausea came back.  Just when I thought the whole pregnancy nausea had passed and was finally get comfortable....nope!  Not so much. 
And this whole pregnancy-induced nausea has made me notice something about evening television.  They have a disturbing number of fast food commercials on during TV shows in the evening.  Seriously.  I'm constantly hitting mute or having to turn to another channel.  It's like every other commercial is advertising some kind of gross-looking food.  Of course, any kind of food looks a little gross to me these days, but I really don't need to see a Taco Bell advertisement before bed when I'm trying my best to calm my stomach down while laying on the couch in the fetal position.  Screw you, Taco Bell. 
Speaking more on the pregnancy end, this past weekend, my mother took me maternity clothes shopping.  Can I just say how difficult it is to find these sections in department stores?  Seriously.  In Kohls we walked the entire store before asking a sales person where they were, and she pointed us to the baby clothing.  And right next to it were two racks of clothes.  A whole two racks.  We found some cute stuff, but it was slim pickins out there.  Slim pickins.  And they don't make petite maternity clothes.  I'm a short girl.  I can't wear normal length pants or I'll end up walking on them.  And sewing is so not my forte, so it's been tough finding some comfy pants. 
And is it too early to be feeling this big?  I'm only 13 1/2 weeks, but my normal clothes aren't comfortable at all.  I was hoping I could hold off on buying maternity stuff until at least week 16 or so.  But that's just not working for me.  So maternity clothes, it is!
So  damn, this post has turned into quite the bitch fest.  Sorry about that, guys!  I'll be back to my normal, cheery self around 4:00 p.m. tomorrow when my other half arrives home.   Until then, don't forget...I'm doing a Q&A vlog next week, so leave me all your questions!  Chloe has already hit me with 12 questions, but I would love more!  So stop by yesterday's post and add your own...have a great weekend!


  1. I know you are thrilled to see T tomorrow! Try Target for maternity...they are pretty cute but I don't know about a petite section there!

  2. It is going to be great to hear how your pregnancy is going. I always find that fascinating for some reason... I hope T gets home soon! :)

  3. I am kicking myself for not catching up on your blog sooner. Congrats Nain! You will be a great mom.

    My sister-in-law just recently had a baby (2 weeks ago!) and she just got one of those elastic bands you put on your pants to hold them up without having to button themup. She also mainly shopped for larger sizes in the woman section instead of the maternity section. Maybe those tips will help :-)

  4. Sometimes, you just have to bitch! ;) And if maternity clothes are more comfy, I say - go for it!
