She's a Zube Girl...

In her Zube World...

Would you like to know what happens in Zube World? Well, why don't I tell you...

Firstly, somehow three cats without opposable thumbs will manage to open a childproof bottle of aspirin and splay said aspirin all over the floor while you are sleeping. The floor, which will happen to be scattered with little tiny tufts of hair. Black hair. White hair. Gray hair. No blonde hair to be found. And, if you happen to be a Zube Girl, you'll have to pull pieces of hair off of said aspirin so that you can eat one because you woke up late and don't have time to stop at the grocery store and buy a new bottle and it is entirely possible that the only reason you've managed to stay pregnant this long is because aspirin is preventing any clots that might harm your precious little fetus.

Secondly, you will live in one pair of pants. And have to wash them every other day. Because they are the only ones that fit you. Well, they don't actually FIT you, persay. Unless one could consider the use of a hair band looped through the buttonhole to the button to fall into the definition of 'fit'. And it will probably be this way for a little bit. Because buying maternity clothes? Scary. It means that I totally believe this will work out. Which, well, I would like to. But, ya know. It's just scary to throw money at the idea.

I'm hanging in. 12 weeks and 4 days. I have an appointment tomorrow where I hope to hell we'll hear the heartbeat. After that? I think I'll breathe just a teeny bit easier. Because then my risk of miscarriage will fall to 3 or 4%. Not that I necessarily trust that I'd be lucky enough to be on the heaping end of odds. But I'll try.

Good luck at your dr appt! Let us know about hearing that little heart beating away :)

Psychobabble said...

Best of luck. Personally, I hated spending money on maternity clothes PERIOD. I mean really? $40 for a shirt I will wear maybe two months before I blow up some more and it no longer fits?

Much love.

Good luck at your appointment tomorrow.

If all goes well (and it will!) celebrate by buying yourself a new pair of pants. Not maternity, just a bigger size of regular pants.

Rori said...

Thinking many many positive things for you.

Viki said...

I'm actually chuckling at the thought of you wearing that same pair of pants for the next six months or so, and just getting bigger and bigger rubberbands to hold them up.

hotdrwife said...

Buy up a size in pants, you'll need'em on your way down!! :)

kyknoord said...

So let me get this straight - you're prepared to kiss a hairy ass-pirin every morning?

Miss Cellania said...

Oh come on, buy yourself ONE new pair of pants. Doesn't have to be maternity, just get a larger size in a stretch fabric. It will make you more comfortable. Congratulations on passing the 12 week mark!

I did the hairband around the button thing too! And I thought I was so clever.

junebee said...

Oh, if it's aspirin doing the trick, I will SEND you some, complete with CAT FUR!

I like the hairband idea, very resourceful.

Ginamonster said...

Hee hee. I'm glad to hear you are doing good. I was getting worried.

Miss Britt said...

Congrats on making it thus far. And much luck and love on the doctor's appointment for more.

When the time comes - shop E-bay. Lots of people are out there trying to unload the maternity clothes they bought, and will never wear again.

If it hits the floor and I want it.....I will still eat it. And as far as the pants are concerned, I wear a uniform at work and I go 3-days in the same pair.

minnie said...

i have been wearing the same pants for 3 days now. i can only be grateful that no one pays attention to me at work and so no one will notice. or care. i also don't care... so it's all good. except that i miss my clothes and also am afraid to go into a real maternity clothes store (old navy doesn't count).

congratz byw!! the ultrasound pic is VERY cute! i see an arm!!!

Miss Misery said...

I just started reading, and you've already got me hooked. That ultrasound picture is adorable.
