If you haven't checked out her blog yet then you totally should run over right now! She is one of my IVF buddies and I'm happy to say that on her second attempt she became a success. She is currently 12 weeks pregnant with an adorable cupcake that I swear is a girl, we have about six more weeks until we find out... ok, until she finds out. I've just been rooting for her for so long the "we" came out naturally =)
Thank you Ashley for allowing me to post on your awesome blog!!!!
And to the rest of my readers... if you are still around and not too upset with me... and happen to read that post you will find out why I've been MIA. I have about 5 different posts I've working on over the past 2 weeks that are unfinished because I forget (very quickly) what my point was.... not to mention that my work hours, gestational diabetes cooking/eating schedule, exhaustion and lack of sleep have been getting in the way. Forgive me? Please! With
Happy 4th of July!!!
Edited to add the guest post:
I would like to start by thanking Ashley for letting me confuse her readers with my thoughts. And at the same time apologize for it.
If you happen to check out my blog, you will notice the lack of posts. The reason for that is simple: pregnancy brain. I have a serious case of it and all I can pray for is for it not to be something permanent, because if it is I feel really bad for my kids. Most of my days are wasted because the only acitivities in me head are brain farts. Don't feel bad for me though, I'm so oblivious to it that it makes me a happy camper. In fact, I think you would all benefit of an hour or two a day of pure brain fart acitivity. Try it first, thank me later.
The biggest issue I've had with this condition is that it has made me forget that I'm pregnant. Ironic right? After months of wondering why I haven't had the "holy crap, I'm pregnant" moment, I finally realized that the culprit is pregnancy brain. I've probably had the realization a few times but how would I know if I can't remember? I'm going crazy, I've found myself going to put toilet paper rolls in the refrigerator, ordering lunch and immediately begin to wonder what I'll be eating, I also happened to put on 2 bras once, one black & one beige and nope I didn't notice the clash of colors. And, and, AND if that wasn't shameful enough, I've given pregnancy brain to my poor husband Jeff. Two days ago he found himself pouring orange juice into the sink instead of his glass. Now, who keeps who sane?
I also can't seem to form a sentence correctly. My ability to talk has been taken over by mumbling, and I may or may not forget what I'm mumbling about in the middle of a conversation... or sometimes even in the beginning... all I know is I'm surely not impressing anyone. Awesome.
Oh, and Ashley? Darling, I hope you don't get as bad as me. I mean, you are already showing some signs of losing some brain activity by allowing me to guest post here, but I'm sure your readers will forgive you. And please don't fear, even if you do get a lil pregnancy stupidity, trust me, all you need is to do 3 sets of brain farts a day and you'll be none-the-wiser.
