Insomnia

I have insomnia... ok, it's 8 in the morning. But Eva is still sleeping and I like to take full advantage of that when I can and catch some zzz's. My anxiety is getting the best of me this morning and Xanax is off limits when you're pregnant, so instead of drugging myself I thought blogging might be therapeutic. 

I wish I was better at this! I think about blogging a lot, but I just feel like I have other stuff I need to be doing (like pinning stuff I'll never do and checking out Facebook) and never make the time for it.

Well, I'm going to be 35 weeks pregnant tomorrow. Why did I do this to myself again? Eva needs a sibling because I think she is lonely, but there would have probably been an easier way. Then, I have a year of breastfeeding to get through. I seriously don't know which is worse. Pregnancy or nursing?

Pregnancy
They could make a reality TV show of me just trying to get up or out of bed. Beached whale!
Constant migraine
My thighs are like tree trunks
I could go on and on, but I won't

Nursing
I just bought a size G (as in ginormous) bra. And I don't even have any milk yet. Can't wait to see what happens there (not)!
Pumping, and pumping, and pumping, and pumping. They should just put me in with the dairy cows.
Bleeding nipples
 Last time nursing was a doozy. Maybe it will be better this time! 

Want to see our baby name list? You probably don't because last time I shared my name list I didn't even pick any of the names on it. This time the list is more extensive. Maybe we'll use one of these. All the girl middle names have family significance. Lyla Dawn is my favorite. Then Derrick told me the other day he can't do Dawn because one of his exes had that for a middle name. He said we could spell it different and use it. Any suggestions? Leighton Lillie is Derrick's favorite. I hate even worrying about it because what if it's a boy? If it's a boy the middle name will be Derrick.

Girl
Brianne Leila
Brielle Dawn
Isabelle Leila
Joselyn Mae
Leighton Rae or Leighton Lillie
Lyla Dawn

Boy
Daxton
Drew
Easton
Ethan
Jackson (My favorite. Is it too popular?)
Joshua

The diva is up now and I am supposed to take her baby doll potty. Guess I better get on that!

Congrats! I didn't know you were prego! PS - here is some unsolicited advice --I'm sure you don't get enough of that ;) Ask your doc for a prescription for Newman's (maybe Neuman's) Nipple cream - Only Spence's pharmacy carries it, but its amazing and worth the $30 freakin dollars for the small bottle.
