12 weeks

Today, I'm 12 weeks pregnant. YAY! Although, it doesn't feel like 12 weeks, and I still sometimes wonder if it's all in my head... but, I look at the little picture of the lima bean, and tell myself, "Yep. You're having a baby!" :)

This weekend, Forrest and I drove up to DC to look at apartments. HO-O-O-OLY CRAP, why didn't someone warn us as to how many apartments there are, how much apartments cost, and how freakin' far out you have to live just to afford to live! It was a stressful weekend, as we drove around trying to find something in our price range (which... we quickly found, only finds us a ghetto hole in the wall in DC, but something more livable out in VA). Between the emotional outbursts from me (the pregnant lady with the crazy horomones), and the traffic, it's no wonder Forrest didn't go ape-sh*t crazy on me! After 2 days of driving around, we found a place, and settled on it. Right now our application is pending, and we're praying it works out. It's only 15 minutes away from the VRE, which will take him an hour to get to work. That makes me sad. An HOUR!!! But it's a great job, and he'll love it, and it'll be worth every minute of the commute for him to be happy. :)
I, on the other hand, must find a part time job up there. I'm thinking Baby Gap or something like that, just so I can get a discount!! :) hahaha... or maybe Babies R Us... again, for the discount. We'll see. :) I'd honestly rather work something like a desk job, so I'm guessing that's where I'll end up.
So, the next 2 weeks involve a whole lot of packing up boxes and sorting through junk. You can say a prayer that we don't pack ourselves up in the boxes and ship ourselves to Timbuctu. :)

Uh, didn't I warn you how far out you'd have to live? I thought I did. If not, my bad. So, where'd you look? I can probably help!

The outskirts of Washington DC holds the demographic title the lowest income bracket of the entire US. I'm sure the irony hasn't been missed by the many who live there, that the poeple who hold all the power to change that are only a fews miles down the road...

Yeah for 12 weeks! I will be 15 weeks tomorrow. I wish people could figure out I'm Pg instead of looking like I have a beer gut. You showing yet?
