Yes, my friends, it’s a boy.
I was told this looks like an engagement announcement, and, now that I think about it, it totally does.
My goal was to show off my fingernails, which are painted blue (for boy!)…
…which were painted during a manicure…
…which I’m able to get for the first time ever…
…because I stopped biting my nails AND PRENATAL VITAMINS.
Prenatal vitamins are no joke. While I don’t have the thick, luxurious hair some women speak of or whatever the “pregnancy glow” is supposed to be, my fingernails are stronger than they’ve ever been. Unless I break one, I can’t bite through them any more.
So I stopped biting my nails successfully for the first time since I’ve had teeth.
Cheers to me!
(Not that I’m any good at having nails. I messed up that pretty polish approximately 10 seconds after I left the salon.)
Prenatal vitamins are important for the baby so he can get the nutrients he needs to grow to baby proportions, and, while they’re super good for me, too, it doesn’t mean they’re pleasant.
Not only are they the biggest vitamins ever, they smell and taste terrible — making all poor pregnant ladies gag.
We’re already nauseous. This is cruel.
Plus, if they’ve got DHA or if you take a separate DHA supplement, you’ll immediately barf.
I don’t take the DHA anymore…
I’ve had problems with multivitamins in the past so I switched to gummy vitamins, which do not make me gag or vomit.
Also pictured are Co Q-10, Omega-3/6/9 oil and vitamin C. Pre-pregnancy, I took two of each of these a day.
Just… I’d feel a little silly buying gummy prenatal vitamins OTC when I have a prescription for the pharmacy stuff with extra folic acid for his tiny brain and spine.
Which reminds me… I need to call the pharmacy :/
