Baby 7.0 – Messing With My Programming
Baby 7.0 is wreaking some havoc up in my belly. I am sick most of the time and when I am not sick I am overwhelmingly tired. It is amazing how I forget from pregnancy to pregnancy how yucky this 1st trimester is.
I have also started to notice my pregnant brain acting up. For me it is forgetfulness and blurtfulness. If you don’t know what blurtfulness is then let me explain.
Blurtfulness is when you just say things that make very little sense or have odd timing. I usually don’t get really bad (or good?) at this until the end of my pregnancy but it happens a little here and there throughout.
One of my worst examples of this was a few pregnancies ago. We were at a church outing/picnic thing and singing worship songs at the end of the day and in the river I saw dolphins. In middle of worship I blurted our “Dolphins!”. Everybody stopped singing but instead of looking at the dolphins that I was so excitedly pointing out they all just stared at me.
That is what I call blurtfulness and it afflicts me with every pregnancy. It is very embarrassing. Blessed I was that my belly was protruding such that sympathy was a given. I was due the next day. But still. Embarrassing.
I’ve grown to accept the forgetfulness but the blurtfulness will always irritate me. You may start noticing a little gooberness in my posts. I know what your thinking. Yes, I mean in addition to my normal gooberness.
My cravings for Coke have begun and I only want to eat peanut M&Ms. Those two things aren’t helping my morning sickness so I have had to supplement with tortilla chips, graham crackers and oatmeal. Not mixed together though. That would be gross.
