Celebrity Vent

In an interview recently, Kim Kardashian stated:

"having six kids is amazing; it’s exactly what I want," adding, "It’s what I grew up with, so I can’t imagine anything less."

Ugh. Now, I'm not picking on Kim alone, but since she's the latest to do so, she gets to be the victim of my ire.

First of all, what self respecting adult talks like that? "Six's exactly what I want". I've also heard other celebs say "oh, I want two girls and two boys", etc..." What the hell? Yeah, I would say shit like that too - when I was FIVE! Maybe it's the bitter infertile in me that thinks "yeah, good luck with that" every time I read a quote like this, but argh! It just frustrates me so much.

Also, it has to be said...what is with society's obsession with celebrity babies? And why is it that as soon as someone famous is dating someone, do they need to be asked "do you want to have children?" - Is that anyone's business, really? And, on top of that, they are expected to give an answer about adoption as well. Kimmy here is opposed to adoption. That's her prerogative, but it's none of my business. It's just distasteful to me, that's all.

....although, I know I'll be slapping down my $3.50 as soon as the Brangelina twins issue of People comes out. I hate myself.

20 week ultrasound on Friday! I can't wait!

Oh, and Kim, stop tainting Reggie please. You're going to ruin the Saints season. Thanks.

Quick and dirty update

So, I've finally realized that work is not worth getting stressed about when you're 18 weeks pregnant. There are many more important things in life. This past week and a half have been wise. It's mid-year review time, so I have numerous presentations to put together for my clients. Also, my best co-worker...the one I count on for everything, is out for her honeymoon for 2 weeks, which leaves me in a lurch, and I have 3 clients each with a problem. When it rains, it pours.

I'm slowly getting through my to-do list and not overpromising anything (which I always do) ...and trying to stay as calm as possible. We had a nice little getaway last weekend, which helped significantly with my outlook.

Anywho, saw the OB on Wednesday...was so happy to hear the little one's heartbeat, which was nice and strong. My 20 week ultrasound will be on August 1st...I can't wait! We won't be finding out the sex, which will be difficult, but I think there are so few surprises in life..this is one that I want to have. We'll see if I can actually hold out though. I think....think..I've felt a few flutters here and there, but I'm not 100% sure. It could be gas...especially with my heartburn lately.

Speaking of, that's pretty much what I've been feeling lately. H&H...heartburn and headaches. Both are making me miserable - when I feel them. It also doesn't help that we're in the middle of a heatwave today. I just want to go out and breathe fresh air, without the mugginess.

Bad Day

If I drank a fifth of vodka right now, would it really hurt the baby? Seriously?

Gah! No, I'm not actually going to do it, but man, it has been one of those days. I'm ready to throw my beloved laptop out the window and just live as a hermit for a few days. Good thing the hub and I are getting away for the weekend.

Remaining alcohol free, but still crazy!!!

Sixteen weeks. We've made it sixteen weeks. I'm still in awe of this entire process. Elating and wonderful, yes, but very frustrating as of late.

In a nutshell, I hate not knowing what's going on. My OB appointments are now a month apart, I can't feel the baby moving yet, and I have no way of knowing if every thing is ok. I feel good, and I know I'm still pregnant and all, but seriously, if I were married to crazy Tom Cruise, and he purchased an ultrasound machine for me, I would think it was the best gift in the world!

Anyone else in this situation?
