I wanted to preface this by saying that I am overjoyed at being pregnant. I am going to do my level best to relish this pregnancy as it will be my last. I have in the past, and know others that are currently struggling with infertility. This post is not meant to bemoan pregnancy or throw it in the faces of those who would love to be pregnant. This is post is merely to vent my silly vents about being pregnant. This is not meant to offend in any way.
1) I have been waiting for the special edition flavor of Timothy's Winter Carnival coffee since February. It is a yummy blend of caramel, custard, and creme brulee. It is my absolute favorite flavor in the world. I ordered it as soon as it came in stock and made a cup of it today. My stupid pregnancy nose HATES the smell of this coffee! I hadn't been drinking my coffee lately as my stomach has been getting a little nauseous at times. I was hoping that my wonderful flavored coffee would be an exception but alas, it is not. So now, I have 4 boxes of special edition coffee that I ordinarily love, that I currently can't stomach. I am a sad panda.
2) I am having some crazy vivid dreams. I rarely remember my dreams but lately I am remembering them every night. The latest was that some employees at Old Navy accused me of shoplifting as part of a scam to steal my iphone. I woke up so agitated, I was a bear all morning. The dreams all seems to be random and very vivid. It's weird.
Now, share your own random, silly pregnancy vents.
Ugh... Being constipated! I couldn't wear button pants all last week from the horrific bloating! Horrifying. I have no pregnant belly at all yet but I was so bloated I didn't even want to go out in public. Two gallons of apple juice later, I'm finally finding some relief!
Never knowing what my energy level will be. Sometimes I feel like I can go do a 90 minute workout. Sometimes I feel like I can't walk from bed to the couch. And there's no predictiblity in which will happen and when!
I can't stand coffee too and I love it. Everything I ate during the two weeks of pregnancy now I hate. Nothing sounds appetizing and I only if I am lucky a 2 hour break from nausea.

LOL about the coffee, but only because I've BTDT. When I was first pg with DS1, I had cravings for Andy Capp hot fries. So my DH bought me a huge box of them at Sam's club. Well, it did not take long for me to develop an aversion to them, and they ended up going out of date and thrown away. At least the coffee you can freeze until after you have the baby.

I had a dream where I had an ultrasound and they found 5 babies. With my last pregnancy I had a dream near the beginning that it was a boy - and it turned out to be right. Hopefully this dream isn't nearly as accurate.
And the bloating....Ugh. I forgot how awful it is. I get sick when I'm hungry. So I eat. Then my stomach hurts because it's so full of bloating.
I really do love being pregnant after the first few months. I keep reminding myself of that.
Aaaaagghhhh! I've been really unorganized and loopy lately. After my 3rd trip home today to pick up something I forgot, I decided to clean out my purse and get more organized. I found $45 in Kohl's Cash, and of course it expired yesterday! I will admit to some tears at that point.
My vent of the day is the overall yucky feeling. The other day after supper out of no where I just started vomiting. Disgusting. Yesterday my stomach was seriously upset to the point I spent the morning and afternoon on the toilet. Today I just feel queasy and just downright yucky feeling. This is no good given I have a ton of papers to grade. I really wish humans had a one month gestation period
