Being Gas Powered and Other Random Things About Pregnancy

So....in case you didn't see this post...I'm pregnant. Which is why I went AWOL for several months because I was very busy having in depth conversations with my toilet and my bed. Baby45 is due in September and I am already sporting a rather large bump with a life and mind of its own.

Seriously, I am just there to fulfill his every need - more space...feel free to rearrange my rib cage, comfy pillow....please use my bladder etc etc. Obviously I am vay vay vay excited about being a mummy. Baby boy is already developing excellent taste in music - vigorous kicks to RATM and Beastie Boys, but not really to much other music. I fear I am going to give birth to a grumpy teenager in a hoodie.

Anyway don't worry I don't plan to blog solely about my pregnancy for the next 3.5 months. I'd be a terrible mommy blogger and besides, this is the best blog about parenting - why would I even bother. But seeing as my brain is fairly fried by this time on a friday, I'm hoping you'll indulge me on the odd occassion and allow me to blog about the pregnancy :)

So today's post is a bunch of things that I did not know about pregnancy. ...I'd like to add the caveat that I know I am very, very lucky to be pregnant. There are many wonderful people out there who would love to have children and for whatever reason, can't. So please be aware that the below is written with tongue firmly in cheek.....
