It seems I have this really insightful sister-in-law. So insightful, in fact, that even from multiple states away, she was able to pick up on the maybe not-so-subtleties of my behavior changes. Ashley's not blogging these days. Why?
OBVIOUSLY, she's pregnant.
And I wasn't going to blog about it before my family knew about it. Or at least, for heaven's sake, until I knew about it.
So there you have it, the reason that A) I haven't been blogging as much, and B) I haven't been weight-losing at all. See the deal is, we started trying to have a second baby about 5 months ago. With our first, it was immediate. Within a blink, faster than you could say, "hey maybe we should start trying for a baby", we had one. It was awesome, and I assumed, indicative of highly predictable pregnancies to come.
In April, we started trying to have a baby, and I stopped trying to be skinny. I assumed I'd be pregnant within 5 minutes and any efforts I made would be completely wasted. Also, I LOVE excuses to stop working out. And anyone who wants to tell me that you "should still work out during pregnancy!" can bite my butt. Well that was my excuse for the first few months, and after that, I guess I was just out of practice. And frustrated that things weren't working as quickly as I thought they should. Which is to say, I never knew you could feel so absolutely pissed off about having to buy a box of tampons. The more you know, huh?
Anyway, with all that said, be prepared for a new flavor around this blog, weight gain progress, giant belly pics, and tales about all the times I've cried that day. (Yesterday it was FOUR!) You know, the kind of stuff that will make you feel MUCH better, and way sexier about yourself. That is my 9 month long gift to you.
Oh, and P.S.- Do you like my drawing? I really am kind of proud of it, I'm thinking of forgetting everything else and making this a place to exhibit my art. Let me know if you'd like an original print, I can design something especially for you. We'll bang out a price later.
