I had a girl’s day out this weekend with one of my closest friends. We haven’t been out in over 9 months because she was finishing up her MBA. We had lunch and went shopping. I had a $250 gift certificate to Pea in the Pod from Mark. Well 3 pants and 1 top later I spent all the money. That store is so expensive but the clothes are very cute and comfy. They have these secret belly pants which are much more comfortable then other full panel pants. If it weren’t for the gift certificate I probably wouldn’t have shopped there.
Our little shopping excursion took about 2 hours. We got back to my Toyota Prius and I left it running. We got in and the car was warm and the lights were on. I was like OMG I left my car running for 2 hours. We laughed so hard and I made her promise never to tell Mark. He would make fun of me for months. I had the car keys in my purse so I don’t think it would have gotten stolen but still. I felt like the biggest dump A**. She said “I heard your brain shrinks 10% when you’re pregnant.” I said “Well mine must have shrunk 50% after that dumb move.” To my credit my Prius is REALLY quiet and you don’t hear it running unless you’re driving.
We started week 18 yesterday and listened to pumpkin with our handy Doppler. I poked my belly a little bit to get it moving. Mark didn’t like that. “Stop it, how would you feel if someone was poking you in the head. Leave it alone.” Lord someone is getting protective of this little person.
