Holy moly, what is wrong with me lately?! I’ve had this horrible attitude for the past week or so. I’ve been negative about most things (except the days that I have coffee) and I have been a complete smart-a** to just about everyone (coffee normally enhances this). I mean, it’s nice to finally tell some people what I think of them and not care, but I know that soon this will go away and I will care because I could really hurt somebody being this way. Blah! I have chosen to have my coffee every other day though. That way I can get some positive days in, even though I’m mean (but really, it’s only if someone says something stupid, like, just think before you speak people!), and then I get a break from being mean too. It’s been working out nicely for me while I cope with the new (and hopefully, temporary) me.
So, I spent about 2 hours really privatizing my facebook page last night. Part of the reason is because of the above mentioned problem, but mostly, I don’t want the whole wide world to know what’s going on my life, but I do want some people, like my close friends, people I talk to on FB, family, and Oki friends (well, most of them), to know what is going on in my life! So I put most people on my friends list on what is called a “limited profile”. That way they have access to my page and can still stalk me to an certain extent. They can’t see most of my photo albums and a few choice people (don’t worry, no one who reads this blog) cannot see my wall. I slept much better last night, for some reason. So if you find you are someone who has limited access to my profile, do not take offense, I am only trying to protect you from the wrath of pregnant Amber (and any future belly pictures I might post), and also, I just want to make my life a little more private. Oh and if you find that you cannot see all of my photo albums, it may not be because you are on the limited profile, but I made those private for only me to see. I mean, I had almost 1,000 pictures and who in the world would ever want to go through all of those?
You know what? Now that I think of it, I’m pretty positive most, if not all, of my readers have not been put on the limited profile, so really I just wasted 3 minutes typing that whole last paragraph! Anyway, pregnancy is just like normal life, for me anyway. Well, besides this weird mood I’ve been in and the food restrictions which I have thrown out the window for the most part. I have good reason for that though. WE ARE THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT PUTS SO MANY RESTRICTIONS ON PREGNANT WOMEN!!! I swear, America has made pregnancy into a 9 month disability or something. Nobody else does this to their pregnant women..NOBODY!! And guess who has the lowest IMR? Places like Singapore, Japan, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden..places that don’t treat their pregnant women like they have a disease. In fact, the US is around number 50 on that list!! 50!!!! So, I have been enjoying my turkey sandwiches, my coffee, my soft-serve ice cream and (GASP!) my sushi. I didn’t say I was eating a whole slab of raw tuna, so don’t freak out, but yes, I have been eating raw sushi about once every 2 weeks. I have not been brave enough to enjoy a glass of wine every night like millions of pregnant women in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD do, but I might have one…once a month or something.
Well, I’m done for the day. Judge me if you want. I’d rather spend my time enjoying the sunshine and the delicious cup of columbian coffee.
