Thanks for asking...

Jenni had asked how my pregnancy is going...so far so good. I know I could end there, but that would be too broad of an answer. I've got some venting to do... :-)

I saw a commercial the other day on tv that really explained an aspect of pregnancy quite well. I think it was a pizza commercial and it emphasized different senses (big eyes, big nose, big ears, big mouth) and the one that hit the nail on the head was the big nose. Really!! I feel like I have superpowers and that I can smell things from a mile away. Chris and I went for a drive last night and we drove by the Camas mill which normally has quite an adverse smell, but last night I almost gagged the smell was so bad. Chris was quite polite and gentle and immedietly turned away from the stink. But he told me that it really wasn't any different than normal. Lame for me. The other day at Costco (one of my favorite places) I walked in and was kinda nauseas due to the plethora of smells...the seafood section, the coffee mill, the fresh rotiseree chicken, the sweets in the bakery...I could go on but I wont. It is kinda annoying, but at the same time it is kinda cool. Like I have a superpower or something, a talent that can be used to better this world. OK, so I've seen a couple of Heroes shows lately. But you get the point.

On another note, I am doing pretty well with my weight gain and just feeling overall pretty well. Other than the fact that I have a little bit of a cold right now, it will pass soon though. One thing that is kinda discouraging is not being able to fit into my clothes. I know it is completely natural and a normal aspect of pregnancy, but for girls, well, you know what I mean. I feel just kinda a little chubby...but I know that it's only in the stomach. It's cute though. I'll post some tummy pics pretty soon for ya'll. Thanks again for asking.

I totally know the feeling Robin, thankfully I am past that point right now! But I am at the point in my pregnancy where other really annoying and painful things seem to inflict my day :) Six more weeks and I will be on the healing end!
