another one on the list

There are so many things I can't do now that I am pregnant.....can't drink, can't have caffeine, can't even go to a concert.

Can't sleep, really - at least not for more than a couple hours.  Baby-on-the-bladder is nature's way of preparing a mommy for the needs of a newborn baby.

And now, as of today, I officially can't do my own pedicure. 

I tried really hard - with near disastrous results.

It was kind funny, really - or must have looked pretty funny, anyway.  Especially the part where I grabbed my foot with my left hand to finish polishing the pinky-toe, then realized I was HOLDING onto my freshly polished big toe (OOPS)

The good news is that I now have a really great excuse to go to the nail salon for pedicures for at least the next 4 or 5 months. 



  1. This post reminded me of how my husband used to paint my nails when I was huge and pregnant. Such a sweet thought. Good luck...

  2. Wait....can't go to a concert?? Why?? And this new "can't" added to the list could turn into a great just means you get to spoil yourself at the spa a little more often! Let someone else do it for you!

  3. Alicia that is so sweet! :)

    Gretchen, technically you CAN go to rock concerts while pregnant - but it is not recommended because of the high decibel noise level. We had tix to see U2 in June. When we found out hubby would be deployed, he told me he would be OK with me taking a friend and going without him, but the dr talked me out of it.
    And yes, I will definitely be getting a spa pedicure at least once a month for the rest of the pregnancy. :)
