Stevie Wonder

I love the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin. I've seen it a million times and it always makes me laugh. I love Steve Carrell and am a huge Office fan. And he is so perfectly awkward in this movie. Anyway, there is a scene where they are playing poker and sharing sex stories and he tries to make one up, without much success. They want more details so they ask him to describe the woman's boobs and then go on to describe different types of nipples. As seen here. Just a little warning....there is graphic language in the clip. One of the types they describe are the "bumpy-braille nipples" and you can hear Seth Rogen call them "Stevie Wonders."

I now own a pair of those.

I swear, I have a short story, written in braille, on my nipples.

I know it's normal in pregnancy but it still surprised me nonetheless. There hasn't been much else to report other than that. My fatigue has started to improve and my tummy is getting a little bigger. I can't fit into most of my clothes anymore, unless they were a little big to begin with or if they are stretchy. I'm starting to get a little heartburn after eating certain foods but antacids solve that problem.

Everyone at work now knows I'm pregnant. I announced it at the staff meeting this past Monday. It feels good to have it out in the open now. I was so nervous about announcing it though! My heart was beating a mile a minute, like I was about to give a speech or something. I just really hate talking in front of large groups. But everyone was happy for me.

Quite a few "stars," and I'm being quite liberal with that word, have announced they are pregnant recently, which is kind of neat.

Anna Duggar (she married the oldest of the 19 Duggar that show!) is due after me, in mid-June. I was impressed that she was so open and honest about her recent miscarriage. Kudos to her.

Pink just announced she is pregnant. I couldn't find anything about when she is due but they seem to believe it's a girl so I'm going to guess April or May?

Mariah Carey shared the news (which wasn't much of surprise if you've seen recent pictures of her...hello boobies!) that she was pregnant. She didn't say when she was due but I'd guess March or April?

And last, but not least, Skeletor....errr, I mean Rachel Zoe. I've never watched her show, nor do I really know anything about her but seriously? This woman? I can see her sternum for crying out loud! How is she even able to menstruate? I seriously hope she decides to eat for the baby's sake.

And finally, I have an appointment with the perinatologist (high risk OB) tomorrow morning. I've heard really good things about this doctor from some of the ladies I babysit for, including the fact that he is super handsome. ;) We are having some first trimester screenings done, including the nuchal translucency test. I believe that will include a detailed ultrasound. I really cannot wait to see what our baby looks like now. I will be sure to post the details tomorrow.
