Well today I finally had a welcomed relief from all the unpacking and rearranging. I woke up late, bummed around watching TV, and then got ready to start the day . I had to call a few places and ask some questions about bills (sidenote: that is another thing that sucks about Adam being gone... dealing with all the financial stuff alone) and then I went by mom's office to ask if she needed anything when I went to Wal-Mart. As soon as I walked in the door everyone said hello and then immediately, almost in choral unison, "let's see that bump!" It was so cool to have people look at my stomach and get all excited. I know some women are all weird about people touching their stomachs and stuff, but I don't think that will be me. I say, the more rubs the merrier! I think of myself as the little Buddha (not the skinny Thai one, the fat Chinese one. Did you know that there are two?? Valuable trivia for you.) Well, not exactly yet, I still only have a little pooch; but looking ahead to the big buldge. I mean, let's face it, big bellies call to be rubbed! And speaking as someone who had NEVER felt a pregnant belly until a few days ago when I had dinner with Tassie and saw Lori, I know some people are in the same boat and are just curious. I mean there is a little miracle in there! Who doesn't want to be as close as possible to that?

So after my first experience with pregnancy fame I had to go to Wal-Mart to stock mom and dad's house with Jessica food. At this point, there are only a few foods that I really feel like eating so to avoid starvation, I had to stock up. For the first time in my entire life I bought chocolate ice cream. Has anyone ever had this stuff??!! Okay, I am just thinking about what I said and realize it is slightly insane. Don't judge, but I do not recall ever having REALLY eaten chocolate ice cream. It's a fantastic little gift from heaven! Had some after dinner tonight and felt mucho happy.

In addition to my newfound belly booster, I also purchased something today called "The Belly Book". I went to Books-A-Million to get some daddy books for Adam and saw it on the shelf (off topic slighty, but I have to share... Adam is one of the most sensitive and compasionate men I have ever met. Lately, when we have been talking, he just doesn't know what to say or how to react to my moods. He, somewhat worriedly, asked me recently if there was anything he could do. He said he just didn't understand what I was going through and he wanted to learn more. He asked if I could pick up some information for expectant dads so that he might be able to be more sympathetic to what I was going through and better ways to comfort me... I know, all of you girls are "awwwing" right now. If you're not, then you're just jealous...hahaha As for the boys, don't think he is gay. I mean if you are bashing him, I am willing to bet you are single. I'm right aren't I? Obviously sensitivity goes a long way.) ANYWAY, after that long tangent, my belly book. It is this keepsake in which you record everything about your pregnancy. It has places to write, post pictures, and answer questions. I thought, what a great thing for baby Martin to look back on one day. I remember asking my mom questions about her pregnancy and she could only remember the big stuff. This will allow me, and whoever else is interested, a glimpse into everything I experienced while pregnant. I was a happy camper leaving the bookstore; much accomplished.

After the bookstore I went on to Movie Gallery to find some entertainment for tonight. I ended up with Mall Cop, Bride Wars, and Taken. I watched Mall Cop earlier this evening and just finished Taken. Wow, Taken was super good. After watching that movie and constantly hearing all the other crazy stuff that occurs in our world, I don't know if I will ever be able to let our baby/child/teenager out of my sight! This risks never end! Its sad isn't it? That people have to be so scared all the time....

Well, docotor's appointment tomorrow! YAY for ultrasounds! From all that I have read and researched, Baby Martin should actually look like a baby now! I will be sure to post the sonogram to facebook once I get home. Let's hope all is well! More infor tomorrow! :)
