Half way done!

Wow. It is hard to think that in a few days, I will officially be halfway through this pregnancy. Only 20 more weeks to go? I can't believe how fast it has flown by. In just 7 weeks I'll be in the third trimester. Yikes. Overall, this pregnancy gig has been a piece of cake. Besides the occasional bout of nausea, I feel grrrrrrrrreat!

Over the last week or so I've began to think that the baby is zapping all of my brain power. A few days ago I was in the back of the house and Jerad was in the kitchen looking for corn chips. He asked me if I knew where they were and I told him something to the effect of "where they go." AKA the food cupboard. He kept saying that he couldn't find them and I was getting more and more annoyed because he can never find ANYTHING. Um.... turns out I had put them away in the fridge. oops.

The next night I was looking for my favorite candle that gets moved room to room. Except I couldn't remember what a "candle" was called, so I asked where the "thing that you catch on fire and smells good" was. Niiiice.

My hygiene is improving because I keep forgetting that I've washed it and reapplying shampoo 3 times, I keep accidentally putting soap on my tooth brush, and I forget I've put on deodorant so I do it again. I am def squeaky clean lately.

Yesterday afternoon while at work I had to run out to my car to grab something. It was raining so I grabbed it, then made a mad dash back to the door. Its one of those doors where you have to enter a combo to get in, like this:

Now... I have to enter this combo every day. Multiple times. My fingers usually just do it without me even thinking about it. Not so much yesterday. I entered the combo, and it beeped at me because it was wrong. Huh. I did it again. Still wrong. I started trying all sorts of other things I thought it "might be." After about 11 attempts, while standing in the rain, I gave up and had to walk all the way around the building. My.brain.is.gone.

I've started having to get up to go to the bathroom again in the middle of the night. Sometimes twice. usually it takes me awhile to fall asleep. It seems like the second I do fall asleep, the 6am alarm is going off and its time for me to get up and get ready for work. Oh well, in another 20 weeks I'll be woken up all throughout the night so I might as well get used to it right?

One of my favorite things so far about being pregnant (besides the fact that we'll have a baby in a few short months of course), is my parents. My mom is SO excited. As is my dad. As soon as we told them my dad went out and picked a bunch of pomegranates, broccoli, and parsley to send us home with because its "good for the baby." I think my mom is looking forward to finding out the sex even more than we are if that's possible. They bought and delivered maternity clothes which was such a blessing because I can't fit into any of my old pants. My dad has called me a few times just because, which is something he didn't do before. He had a hernia surgery a few days ago and I went by to bring him some fresh squeezed carrot juice and see how he was feeling. My mom couldn't wait to tell me that they told all the nurses at the surgery center that they were going to be grandparents soon. Its soo adorable to see them so excited, I can't wait until we actually have the baby!

i remember when i used to be doing something at work, stop to grab a pen and literally forget what i had just been doing three seconds before. or when i would have a question for someone walk in and nearly cry because i had no fucking clue what i was doing there. and dude putting stuff in the fridge. i was sooo all over that, along with that came putting cold stuff in the pantry to get ruined..i also found my phone in the pantry once
