Feeling down

I am totally in need of love today.

And chocolate.

Anything that makes me feel happy and comforted, really.

Had a horrid day yesterday. My emotions ranged from content to upset, to angry, then bothered, uncertain, sad, agitated and even meh.

Sometimes I just feel like I can't do right. I try. I really do. But something I do makes one person unhappy. Another person takes what I'm saying the wrong way. Things are disorganized, and when I try to help organize, I'm told not to get "all worked up".

It's just sucky.

Recently, there have been people who tell me I'm looking "big" for how far along I am in my pregnancy. News to me. I thought I was normal. Someone told me they should lend me their fat jeans, because the thighs are bigger, just like mine are. Someone smirked at me while telling me to calm down. My husband agreed with me when I said maybe I needed to be more positive. (Sometimes you just want them to say the "right" thing, you know?)

Anyway - woe is me, blah, blah, blah.

I know I really shouldn't be complaining. But it just seems that every once in a while, I can't help but be human and let the little things all pile up and get me down.

Which is why I need chocolate today. Mass quantities of it, please.

And yes, I know I'm an emotional eater. But just for today? It's okay.


  1. First of all, I was just thinking how great you look pregnant and I know you worry about weight gain - and all I see is baby bump! Secondly, you need to spoil yourself while you're waiting for your little girl to show up and turn your life upside down. Bring on the chocolate!!

  2. I totally agree with your Mom. I think you look wonderful and your bump is looking absolutely normal for this stage of the pregnancy. Emotions can play havoc sometimes; but it seems like chocolate is a good fix--keep it coming. One for Heather and for the wee girl.
