Happy Birthday to Me!

By January 27th, 2021110 Comments

Happy Birthday to Me!
It’s my party, I can cry if I want to…

I’m a hormonal, pregnant mess. You can ask anyone that knows me well… I am NOT a moody person. I’m usually very upbeat and positive, but lately, I’m a cry baby one minute, and a bitch the next! In the past weeks I’ve become tearful over forgotten condiments (Ihop forgot to put syrup in my to go bag!), and driven to mouth obscenities at peeps that cut me off on the road. That is so not me!

My hormones are acting a donkey and I’m having a ridiculous time controlling my emotions. I’m sure hubby is ready to run screaming from our house. Who would’ve thunk that pregnancy would have such a drastic effect on every aspect of life?! Sorry for the rant.

Anyway… I’m 27 today!!!!!! Feeling good right now… wishing I could celebrate with a glass of Riesling or a Cosmo, but alas, a glass of sparkling apple cider it is! Maybe you gorgeous curly divas can have one for me?

Later gators,

p.s. Hell hath no fury like a pregnant woman deprived of pancakes… or syrup for that matter!

p.p.s. I’m in STL and my mom remembered that I looove DQ Ice Cream Cakes. Yay!!! Is it just me, or are many of my posts about food lately? Sorry 🙂

    Happy happy birthday! Hooray for May babies! (My own birthday is on the 14th.) Pregnancy is a roller coaster ride of emotions! Your newfound moodiness is SO very normal! But one day, you and your hubby will look back and laugh about it. 🙂 Probably not until after your baby starts sleeping through the night and the two of you are no longer sleep deprived. See, what you have to look forward to?! LOL! I kid!

    Happy Birthday!! Yes, pregnancy will make you an emotional roller coaster! During my last pregnancy, we went to NY and stayed at the DoubleTree Hotel. On our last day, I went downstairs to the hotel restaurant to heat up my daughters' oatmeal. The two previous days, I was able to use the fountain milk for the coffee, however on this particular day, one of the employees told me that I could only get hot water. I stormed off back to our room and cried like a baby to my husband. I was so upset that he went to the general manager of the hotel for an apology. He was such a sweetheart about it! Now I feel like an idiot for crying like that!! Another funny story, a friend of mine was pregnant and went to the movies and a guy behind her kept kicking her seat. Instead of asking him to stop, she got up and went to the seat behind him, and started kicking his! Her husband said that he could have just melted in the floor… Moral of the story, it happens to the best of us. Hang in there!

    ¡¡Feliz Cumpleaños Nikki!! I soooo remember those crazy hormones. My hunny could say the smallest thing and it would hurt my feelings. I'd ask him how dinner tasted and he'd say, "Its alright" and I'd start to tear up lmbo…I feel your pain sis.

    Happy Birthday Nikki! As frustrating as it is, it DOES get better! I was very pregnant and on bedrest for my 30th birthday in January. In order to get out of the house for something other than a doctor's appointment,I scheduled my appointment to get a shot of RhoGam (a HUGE shot in the butt) for this day AND went to the funeral of my uncle (that I didn't know very well. Sad but I was an emotional mess too.
