Snoogle hog

I have always been a stomach sleeper. With the ever growing bump, my neck finds itself in very uncomfortable positions when, despite my best efforts, I roll onto my stomach during the night to sleep. Eventually, the bean started kicking the crap out of me and waking me up to roll over and off of it. The only other position I have really slept in is on my back. Apparently, sleeping on your back is just as bad after 20 weeks or so since it decreases blood flow to the baby.

I hate sleeping on my side. Limbs fall asleep, its just uncomfortable. A couple of my friends have told me about the magical C shaped, body length, snoogle pillow. I went ahead and bought this pillow last week in order to lodge my body into one position on my side for the night. I got a great night's sleep, on my side, and have had fantastic sleep ever since.

Zap is equally pleased with the pillow. (notice his actual bed on the floor, unused)

My Gut

Last weekend, we took Zapato to the beach for the first time. Safe to say he's a beach bum like me. Not so fun pregnancy fact, apparently my built in SPF mexican no longer makes me impervious to the sun's rays. I burned like a white girl and boy did it hurt!

Now there's no denying there's a human growing in there. I'm just getting big all over. Sigh.

BB's playlist

Of course we are already in the process of exposing our child to have a perfectly eclectic mix of music.

A couple of weeks ago we started with the following songs, Ryan and I each picked some of our faves.

1. Otis Redding- That's how strong my love is (the first song Ryan and I danced to at our wedding)
2. The Ramones- I wanna be sedated (what? I like punk. Sue me. The Sex Pistols are on another playlist)
3. Band of Horses- No one's gonna love you (more than I do)
4. Flaming lips- Do you realize?

Belly and Baby test driving

So I haven't been as diligent as I would hoped I would in keeping up with the blog, but oh well. Give me a break. I'm growing a human and getting my MBA. Here are some photos and some updates.

14 week belly

16 week belly

Currently at 19 weeks (almost halfway!!) and no picture, but I will post one by the end of the week.

More exciting than my belly: My friend Sara entrusted her adorable son to Ryan and I while her and husband Danny went out on a date. He was such a great kid, lots of fun, and a total sport about Zap stealing his toys. We got to see how the dog reacted to a crawling kiddo. Thankfully, the two were fast friends. We also got to test drive Bob! Bob, Zap and Cayden all did great with each other.

Finally, I would like to brag about my amazing husband. Not only did he stand toe to toe with this guy (more like belly to toe) in a hot dog eating contest, he finished his first screenplay today! He plans on entering into the Austin Film Fest this year. I could not be more proud of him, this was a huge feat.
