Top Ten Signs that I'm Prego

10. I have absolutely no interest in chocolate

9. After ordering food at a restaurant, once the food arrives I’ve decided that what I ordered was disgusting and I want something else.

8. I’ve started writing touchy feely blog posts

7. I think 6pm should be universally accepted as bedtime.

6. The first question I ask when walking into a building is ‘where’s the bathroom?’

5. My husband is constantly reminding me that I'm lucky he's so patient.

4. Even my fat clothes don’t fit.

3. I warn those that choose to sit next to me on an airplane that there is a 50/50 chance I’ll have to use the barf bag.

2. My mouth tastes like a foot.

1. I well up with tears watching commercials for America's Got Talent (and I don't even like the show)

Melissa said...

Wonderful! I hope you feel well. Babies are just heavenly... so are 2 year olds and 5 and 7 and 9 year olds. :)

Steve said...

Hmmm, must be something in the air going around b/c you aren't the first or second woman in my life to "be stricken".......

Cameron said...

Wow, I think I've used the "you're lucky I'm so patient" line a few times myself.


Will & Natalie Giddens said...

WOW! I'm so excited for you and the hubs! I can't wait to hear your take on pregnancy as you progress. Some women love being pregnant and really get that whole "glow" thing going, but not me. Yea!

crazy4danes said...

Holy crap!!! What?!? Is it true?! I am happy for you, and totally relate to your symptoms! :D I hope you enjoy being pregnant...I really did! We must get together soon!!! :) Hope you do OK with this heat!

brent said...

Congrats to you and Brent! This is GREAT news! The list...hilarious. Thanks for sharing the news! Hopefully the next few months won't be as bad as tasting feet all the time and crying during 'America's Got Talent'.

Hilary said...

Hooray! I am so excited for you! Fun way to break the news. Good luck with the puking..It is all worth it! I can't wait to hear all about the journey.

Jolly said...

Time to celebrate! I am so so so happy for you! Now...for a list of books to read, just ask...I have many recommendations...mainly that I got from my sister Sally. ;-) And she is really a smart mom.

cropstar said...

Thank you for doing your patriotic duty and bringing another non-democrat into the world.

Seriously though- CONGRATS!!

Kristen said...

Yahoo! Congratulations!

Ben & Kimberly McEvoy said...

Kory I am so happy for you and also I feel like am I am goign to throw up.

Pregnancy is a time in my life i would rather blot out. When I see pregnant women walking around I get sick. besides that I am thrilled for you.

You will have to keep us updated.
I pray you will not have bad symptoms.


Daisy Paige said...

Congratulations! Hope you have an 'easy' pregnancy! (I promise-promise that some women really do. I'd probably spend my life pregnant if it didn't make my breasts so big!)

ChelMo said...

Congrats! We're very excited for you!!

I think it is so awesome for you both. I can not wait to tell the is killing me to keep this a secret til family reunion.
I hope people are not annoying you by giving their friendly advice especailly about eating crackers for feeling pucky! I was soooooooo tired of hearing that suggestion. It never worked for me. Next you will here everyones labor and delivery stories. lol

davers said...

Prego! Horray!! This will be the first of what ... 12? (just kidding)

He he he ... "prego". I was banned from using that term when I got married.

Congrats! Hopefully the yucky part will be short lived and you can enjoy the "glowing" part.

Della Hill said...

Hooray for You!
It sounds like Brent finally gave in. Way to go on winning that battle.
The other good news is that you don't have to hear people ask "So when are you going to have a baby?" anymore and have to suffer their sympathetic looks any longer.
You should check out my pic blog (Della's Pics; link from my blog or profile) to see some very helpful -and entertaining- hints and tips for expectant mothers.
I'm thrilled for you.

Robin said...

Yay! you will be a great mom!

Salt H2O said...

Thanks for all the well wishes! They were fun ot read. I think I'm through the miserable part- I'm still tired 24-7 and I do vomit frequently but I'll take that over the naseua any day! That's the worst.

I'm due January 15th, I'm hoping (like most moms) that the baby comes early- December 31st would be ideal for tax purposes.

I don't have a glow, I don't look pregnant, just like I've let myself go.

The funniest is when I told a client of mine that hasn't seen me in a few months that I was pregnant. Her response,
"I thought you were getting a bit chunky"

Ben & Kimberly McEvoy said...

promise me you will punch any strangers that rub your belly. I was so shocked by my well wishers I never reacted quick enough.

we like to wait until the birth to find out the gender so I had loads of wacky people telling me to "pee in the toilet and if its green it s a boy", or "if it hurts when we have sex its a girl". "oh you are so big it must be a boy", the baby is so high it has got to be a girl.
seriously where do people come up with this stuff?

If you have it Jan 6th that's my birthday, I consider it a national holiday.

Heather & Dave said...

WOW! Congratulations! You'll be amazing parents and that will be ONE CUTE kiddo. Can't wait to hear if it's a baby boy or girl. Keep us posted & hopefully you feel better soon!

About the whole kids = happiness thing. In my opinion, it's about getting breaks when you need them. So try to live by family, or really nice friends, or have lots of money to hire exceptionally trustworthy nannies every so often. Might sound bad, but it's my opinion that you love your children and appreciate them best when you get occasional breathers.

I am so happy for you. I think you have so much to offer your future children.

Allie said...

Yea for babies.

I've always found it amusing that having a baby only has to sound like a good idea for little while, and then it's too late to go back.

(I don't like being pregnant, but I love new babies!)

No chocolate... Must mean you're having a boy. :)

3- You haven't slept through a full night without getting up to pee every hour
2- You are so big people have begun asking if you're having twins
