PREGGERS?!

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Do we millennials even say this anymore? Yes, you have heard it here, folks. I am finally telling you all that I am 9 weeks and three days pregnant. I have been ill from morning sickness, which for me occurs in the evening. It makes me not want to blog or really do much of anything. This is why I have been only uploading two posts a week. I really do not have the energy for more. I have been told that morning sickness peeks at the nine to twelve week, so I still have three weeks of being sick to go. It has made me a bit lazy and I have gained almost 7lbs. I am supposed to gain 10lbs for each trimester. Honestly, my stomach isn’t all that puffy. The extra weight went all to my boobs and but. I am not joking. My boobs have doubled in size already. I really like that part. lol.

Sorry to Jen for not sending out your book from the giveaway! Morning sickness hit right about then and my dad kept putting it in the mail without postage! It will be mailed tomorrow and you will hopefully get it by the end of the week. Umm…what else??? If you have any questions for me, you can ask them. Don’t be scared. This is my first and probably only baby. I’m not even sure if I’m really ready for this, but I’m not going to abort. I believe that abortion is for really young girls, rape victims, and for severely deformed fetus that have no chance of survival. Also still borns. This is just what I believe, so please don’t attack me for my views. I am pro-choice for every woman out there. I believe you have the right to choose what happens to your body. But I got myself into this mess and it is only just to go through it.

I think I am mentally ready for a baby, but there are just so many doubts. You know? I am trying to look for a bigger apartment in a safer neighborhood, until I can afford a down payment on a house. I think in 5 years I could buy a house, but for now, I need a bigger/safer place to live. I found one place with a huge living room and a nice sized bedroom. It has a nice yard and porch as well. It is hard to afford a two bedroom with me and my disabled father. The living room basically also becomes his bedroom at night, but he doesn’t mind. I’m so glad to have such a supportive parent. I feel so lucky to have the people in my life that I do. Thanks for listening!

With Love,

Selena

  1. I know you’re probably at least slightly terrified at the idea of having a baby, but I want you to know that I am 100% supportive and proud of you for doing what you believe it the right thing to do. It won’t be the easiest thing to do but I think that while difficult it will be a positive thing. It’s so funny because I remember you being 16 or 17 and randomly saying one day that with or without a man you wanted a baby by the time you were 25. I know I didn’t have much of a reaction on Thursday (I was a bit surprised!,) if you’re happy to be having a baby then I am happy for you.

    1. Oh, Dani! I just cried! Thank you so much. This means so much to me and I was a bit nonchalant on Thursday telling you. So, I’m not surprised. lol. I found a few apartments that I am waiting to hear back from. I think I remember that, too. That’s so funny! Yes, terrified of the giving birth part 100%. I’m looking into classes that will help me be less terrified. I am happy. I mean, I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I’ll have a second one by the time I’m 35 and married (hopefully!).

      1. You won’t be 35 for over 10 years! Lol. You can always use drugs to have the actual baby. Most people who ive heard of using it are glad that they did. There’s so many options for having babies now than there was before. But that doesn’t even come until the end and once it’s over that’s it. Sort of. I’m sure you can find some books about it to make you feel better. Don’t read horror stories on the Internet! Lol. I’ll admit to doing that, and I have to stop because it freaks me out.

      2. Do you have a desk or work area at work? Maybe you should buy a box of granola bars or crackers or nuts or something to keep there because I’m guessing you will probably continue to be hungry.

      3. I brought popcorn with me! I tend to just stuff snacks into my purse and then, put them in my desk at work….or eat them….What are you doing?

      4. Contemplating what to have for breakfast currently, and planning on getting some things done around my house today. Am hoping to tackle my bathtub, and go through old socks to see which ones are not good. I’m always putting on socks with holes in them and it’s annoying. Lol

      5. It is annoying! I have to buy a couple of packs of socks, because I threw too many out and now don’t have enough pairs that match. lol. I told my dad that I would do all of the cooking and he does all of the cleaning. It was a deal.

      6. As you know me and my mom are the only ones who do any cleaning, so living in a house with 4 other people who don’t clean up after themselves is very frustrating! I feel like I’m always trying to get that tub clean! It’s annoying.

      7. I know! I feel like you are cleaning that tub every week. I hear you say it at least two to three times a month. They should really pitch in a little. I mean, it’s really not that hard to do the dishes or the laundry or at least fold the clothes and keep your own room clean.

      8. It really isn’t. It would be much easier for everyone if everyone did a little bit. And you would think they’d at least want to help for my mothers sake. I really don’t mind cleaning, I just wish I wasn’t the only one doing it. But this tub is the worst. I want to get it clean and out some sort of polish on it so it won’t get dirty so fast. My other siblings like to leave the soap bar resting almost directly in the shower stream, and it not only dirties that area of the tub but it wastes soap.

      9. All that scum as well is really hard to get off from the soap. It becomes a chore when you are the only one doing it. I do little things like vacuum and wash the floors and fold the laundry and do my own laundry and organize. I love to organize.

      10. You have a TON of hair products. I will be buying some new book shelves that I will set up in the living room to make space in my bedroom. One of the apartments came back and they don’t allow animals…I sent out two other requests though, so hopefully a bite!

      11. I really do. And a lot of them are actually in my closet. In trying to use up all of the smaller ones. Hopefully you will find another one. Someone has to take pets!!

      12. Exactly! I have a small amount of hair stuff to use up, but still. They really add up and some products last years because you only need so much.

      13. seriously. I have a small bottle of hairspray, but I never use hair spray. And hair serum lasts forever. I feel like after a few months I’m going to cancel either one or both of my subscription boxes because it just keeps adding up!

      14. Lol. So many sample sizes really add up. My pregnancy box should be shipping out soon. I’m excited to see what is inside. I already cancelled Naturebox.

      15. they have a box for that? I shouldn’t be surprised. lol. I’m thinking i might send out for the trial for nature box, but i don’t think i would actually pay the $20 for it. I want to try pop sugar or something but it’s so much pricier.

      16. OMG! Pop Sugar is 40 dollars, which is so crazy! I would spend the 2 to get the Nature box sampler. It was worth it. Yes, they have many boxes for expectant mothers and this 19 USD box was the cheapest one.

      17. I know. I really want it but until I’m making a lot more money I cannot swing that. What do they send in a baby box? Supplies or is it reading material? or something else completely?

      18. I think it’s a mix of everything from what I read. There are snacks, baby toys, and books. Also, lots of coupons! I might just buy a box from Pop Sugar after the fact if I like what is inside.

      19. I laughed at the expense of starting out buying things new for a baby: 4K. I plan on buying everything used, except the mattress and there are some people at work who have baby furniture still. They might give it to me for cheap. Also, I found out that my insurance pays for an electric breast milk pump, so that is 300 less out of my pocket!

      20. Good idea! The Salvation Army is a good place to check for things like that. The one I usually go to in Brooklyn has days where all the clothes are 50% off. I think Wednesday? But they have different deals all the time.

      21. There are a lot of little shops that sell 2nd hand stuff as well. Vintage shops, I think they are called or consignments. There are some cute baby cribs/changingtables at Walmart for surprisingly cheap prices.

      22. Walmart is probably the best idea. I sometimes wander through the baby section at Target and they’re prices are a bit higher. They do sell all natural products though!

      23. All natural? Were you looking at food? I am def getting some safe baby bottles, maybe made of glass just to be safe. I don’t like the thought of BPA plastic bottles. I think glass is the best way to go or BPA free plastic. We should go baby shopping next month or so together. It would be fun. My dad just gets overwhelmed and wants to leave. lol

  2. Congratulations! Hopes, dreams, and opportunities await you. I know there may be hard times, but you seem like someone who can handle them and give your child a great amount of love. Congrats.
