Someday I want to share these journal entries with my child when he/she gets older, so I thought I'd go ahead and answer a ton of questions that I found on some surveys. Then later I'll give a real update about the doctor's appointment.

Then I found this short one:
1. What's the one thing you would change about pregnancy? I would have timed it differently so I wouldn't be pregnant during summer! Also, I wish I could take away the exhaustion.

2. What was the most surprising symptom? How tired I got. It was frustrating.

3. What's something every pregnant woman should know? The first trimester won't last forever and it DOES get better once you're out of it.

4. What's the funniest thing that's happened to you while you're pregnant? Explaining to Veronica (my 9 year old niece) how babies are made. We turned her world upside down. She couldn't believe that I did that with Cody.

5. What is the one thing that annoyed you the most during pregnancy? So far, just the weight gain and not fitting into my favorite jeans or any of my favorite clothes anymore. You would think that knowing the source of the weight gain would make it easier, but it really doesn't. The mirror is my enemy. And of course, dealing with wedding plans.

6. What's the one thing you couldn't get enough of? Dill pickles. Lots and lots of them.

7. What is the one piece of advice every pregnant woman should have? Not all prenatal vitamins are the same- some really do make you sicker than others (or more constipated!). Also, when you feel tired, take naps, they actually do help and you'll save yourself a lot of bad moods and possibly some moodswings.
