One HOT mama

Like many women before me and many to follow one of the first things I did when I found out I was pregnant was google and read everything I could get my hands on and of course, sign up for my weekly updates from "The bump".
And as you know, I now have a 6 week old preemie and find these updates a little... well annoying. It's not your fault "bump" how are you suppose to know that my precious little girl couldn't wait any longer to met me and came early. When I got home from the hospital and finally checked my email, you were there and I was mad. But now I'm seeing the brighter side. Week after week as I read your updates, I'm starting to think that maybe there's a good side to missing the last 3 months, triedness, more weigh gain, pains, hot flashes, etc. Your not making it sound like much fun!
Today I would have been 33 weeks and this is what "The Bump" had to say...

Your Pregnancy: Week 33

You are one hot mama -- literally. A 20 percent metabolic rate increase throughout pregnancy can leave you begging for a cool breeze no matter what the weather is like. Distract yourself with an exercise in blind identification. Try to distinguish between baby's feet, fists, knees, and elbows -- all doing some major pushing and nudging inside of you.

So this Thanksgiving Eve, after visiting with Abby (now 3lb 3oz, by the way) and having to leave because they were getting an admission I went across the street to Target and got myself a fountain Diet Coke and enjoyed some shopping time. So 3 refills later (yes, I really did refill) I had found some good stuff.
A dress for tomorrow

I might not be literally one hot mama but who says I can't look like one.

A new Christmas movie, so funny saw it last year and they JUST released it on DVD this week.
