My little pumpkin seed

This weekend someone asked me point blank if I am pregnant. I'm not telling anyone, but I'm also not lying about it either, so I confirmed. I suppose she will tell her husband which will bring my grand total up to 5 people who know. Unfortunately, this is a good friend who I don't talk to often and see even less frequently so I'm still lacking anyone to really talk to about it. Time will fix this, I know.

Today I have a headache. This is one of the bits of pregnancy that I was dreading. Headaches make me way less functional as a person and now there is almost nothing I can do about it. I'm having a tiny cup of coffee at the moment (1/3 coffee, 1/3 decaf, 1/3 milk) to see if I can cure it with caffeine, but I don't have particularly high hopes. Only another 250 days before I can take a pain killer again. Is that even true? Can you have pain killers while breast feeding? No clue. I've read a whole bunch about being pregnant and what to expect and what to do and not do, but I haven't begun looking into what happens when the baby comes.

I have a friend who gave birth in January 2009. She called her little baby 'poppy' for a while when she was pregnant. Super cute name and very fun, and descriptive because that was the size the baby was when they told people. I'm in the poppy seed stage now and not telling anyone. I think by the time I'm going to tell anyone it will be substantially larger, probably to the point of being pumpkin seed sized, which is cute because I'm due in October. How fun is that!? My little pumpkin seed. Yes, I stole this from my pregnancy forums, but I'm probably going to be the only one in my life pregnant and due in October, so I'm ok with that.

Days Pregnant: 33
Days to go: 247
