'Podge Post

Some quirks of this pregnancy that didn't occur with BB:
  • I can't stand the smell or thought of coffee
  • I hate all things mint (thank God for cinnamon toothpaste!)
  • I think cheese tastes like block salt (or what I imagine block salt to taste like)
  • I gag every time I open the refrigerator or pantry. There's just something about seeing all of that food together...
  • I find that all men (DH, my dad, etc.) smell repulsive. Thankfully, this doesn't include BB. I can't really describe the smell other than it's offensive. It's not quite BO, and it's only men. Hopefully this will be a short-lived first trimester thing. Has anyone else ever had this problem, or heard of it?
On the homeschool front, we still haven't resumed our normal school routine. Part of this is due to the fact that DH is still using the schoolroom as a workstation for the kid's bath remodel (which is essentially done except for some touch-up paint). But also because I plan on homeschooling during the summer and taking an extended break once the baby comes in August. DH and I had planned on BB attending a once-weekly co-op class next year, but with the baby due August 26, we're not so sure now. The co-op we are interested in has Open House in March, so we'll find out more about it then.


  1. what, what, WHAT?!?!?!?!
    you're pregnant!!!!!
    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. i am SO very happy for you! so, so, so very happy.
    i am smiling like a crazy woman over here :)

    now, i had to laugh about your quirks this time around... since for me and this pregnancy i can't get enough mint, have LOVED the smell of coffee, have eaten a ton of cheese and rejoice every time i open the pantry/fridge. sadly, my weight gain has certainly reflected this :)

    i'll be praying for you. for your family, your pregnancy, your labor (eek!) and for your new little joy growing away.

    oh happy day!

  2. well mrs heather well i was pregnant i would have rather hated the smell of coffee and men but i didnt i couldnt stand the smell od doritos and i no this is gonna sound gross but i could smell a women period before she had it so thank god u cant smell that and you hate the smell of men and coffee and things in a fridge. good luck with the new baby on the way
