Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, September 29

Shoes: Vera Wang for Kohls, Jeans: UO, Sweater: c/o Chicwish, Glasses: UO
Awkward
- The poor, awkward, soon-to-be father who was left alone in the waiting room with me.  
"Soooooooo .... you're pregnant too." 
"Um, yep. Yep I am." 
"Good ... that's good."
Please, almighty clipboard. Please let my name be next. 
- Leaning forward and having my belly easily rest on my legs. The best way to feel ginormous and sweet relief at the same time.
- Baby Registries. Here people! Buy me stuff! I kind of despise them.
- Sitting at a desk all day causes burning shins and swollen ankles. Funny, I thought that was from walking. Welcome to the lose-lose portion of pregnancy!
- Walking full-speed ahead towards the check-out line at Walmart. Clearly, not browsing for anything. One of the associates stops, looks at me and says "OK, I found it. The mango salsa is on aisle 9." Of course I'm thinking this guy is kind of a nutbag ... but I say, "Great. Thanks". Only to realize the woman behind me says thanks too. And the nutbag-turned-not-nutbag-but-actually-a-helpful-associate gives me the "your poor brain must've up and died" look.
Actually ... yes.
- The fact that I KNEW I'd be producing milk at some point. But having a "what the CRAP is going on down there?!" moment, pretty much every time it happens.

Awesome
- Women who don't tell me their birthing horror stories. I love it when they don't tell me those.
- Giving someone the stare-down until they give me their seat. My bump is passive aggressive.
- Running out of my favorite body-saver Shea butter and being pleasantly surprised by the fact that I don't have to order it online and wait 7-10 days anymore. They have a store! yay! I don't live in Idaho! yay!
- Root beer? Since when?
- Waking up in the middle of the night as per usual. And then hearing the rain outside the window. Sleep is somehow always easier after that.
- Actually having good stuff to make packing his lunch that much easier. It's the simple things.
- The weekend. Where whole afternoons can be spent in bed talking. And talking and talking. So glad I didn't marry somebody boring.

Alison said...

Hilarious, as always. And I may have said this before, but I seriously need a pair of red jeans/pants/trousers/whatever. As long as they're red. You look great :)

Rissy said...

it's good that you're a nicer person than me, because I would have come up with so many witty (not at all nice) responses for that guy in the waiting room... ok fine, I wouldn't have said them.

I a little bit am craving mango salsa now.

I promise not to tell you any birthing stories... because I don't even know one : )

MG said...

You are seriously such an adorable preggo! I love it.

meg @ a is for awesome said...

I thought standing would be horrible, too... but I actually prefer it over sitting at a desk, as well! My tailbone hurts from all the weight pushing down on my bootie... I pray that you do not experience that! And uh, please enlighten us, are those maternity pants and if not, how are you still wearing them? Belly band? Rubberband trick? It's mind boggling.

Nastassja said...

Great post, again! love those red skinnies too. you're AWESOME!

Ashley Blossom said...

CONGRATULATIONS! You found a sweater with a unique pattern that (when looking at the front) doesn't show you're pregnant and all. However, when you turn, we see your "passive-aggressive" baby bump!!! :) Love it.

ashleygreenwood said...

I don't know why people feel like they need to share their prego horror stories! Not helpful! Also, milk...weird! You are a bay making machine! Praying for you and your little babe!!

I am SO TIRED of people telling me birthing horror stories! ENOUGH already! This isn't good for a pregnant woman's mojo!!!

Kati said...

haha I remember the first time I started leaking a little, it was over night so the next morning it had dried, and started to peal off, and I was so scared because I thought it was my nipple falling off! buwahaha. imagine hubbys horror when he hears me yell from the bathroom"my nipple s fallin off!"

theolivetree said...

The plus side to baby registry's are that you can get a discount on all that isn't purchased...so just tell your self that is why you do it :)

brittany said...

You are so cute! Can't even tell you are pregnant until you turn to the side!
You should have just gone and grabbed some mango salsa with a look like 'thanks for the tip! you were right to think that I look like the type of girl who would want mango salsa!'

jen said...

I agree with you about the registry, but recommend you embrace it. People are going to buy you stuff like it or not, so make it easy for them and assure you get what you really need/want.

dailydoily said...

Awe :) I like the last awesome. My husband is m.i.a. on the weekends during the day.

"My bumps is passive aggressive" bet the baby would love to hear that about him once he gets older, you are so funny!

Kelly said...

Surprisingly, from the front you don't even look pregnant.. You look great in these photos - I especially love the sweater.

sandra said...

I live in Idaho and that is totally true. I have been going nuts for 4 months of living here. Online Shopping for me is not fun.

Unknown said...

Root Beer! I know! I didn't like root beer at all before I was pregnant, then BAM! Couldn't get enough....Also, crunchy cheetos mixed in with cottage cheese is surprisingly delicious! :)

L-sonia said...

admirable sweater!!!!

ally lewis said...

you look stunning pregnant! i have been dying for a pair of red jeans and you look just about perfect in those!

marvelousme said...

I SO know what you mean about birthing horror stories! Imagine these women wanting to tell someone who isn't even pregnant, isn't even married, and isn't even an adult! Like me. Why do they think I CARE?!?!

All I can think is "look, people. Just because you think your experience was beautiful, doesn't mean the whole entire world has to agree with you. Especially when they are under-age. Just sayin...."

Kristal said...

Your boots are adorable and you look pretty as ever! I feel like I just read your Thursday post! Time flies but I love the Awkward and Awesome stories of yours! Have a great day!

Made my week, as per usual. And look at you being all adorable and stuff! My goodness.

Pamela said...

So don't have a baby registry, right?

Tara said...

Love this so much. Glad I found you.

Rain outside is best.
We have no food in our house cause we just moved to LA, just got a refrigerator last week, oh....and are sort of poor. :)
I love your bump.

The end. For today.

Gertrude said...

Love the Thursday posts! You look adorable :) x

Elizabeth Benfield said...

im keeping the "stare down for a seat" in my rolodex to save for when im pregnant ... its great!

also, i love the sweater and how the print brings out "the passive aggressive bump"

Sydney said...

Lovin the red pants! I'm going thrifting soon in pure longing for colored pants for work.
And the walls in your (i'm assuming) house remind me so much of our own. Random, I know. You have good taste! ;)

The Egg said...

those shoes are from kohls?! gotta get me some!

you look adorable as always : )

the egg out west.

Jenessa said...

Sydney, I love your blog, and you are the cutest most stylish pregnant woman ever! When that time comes for me...I know where I will be looking for outfit inspiration. Of course I won't wait till then.
You're awesome! :)

thinkpriddy said...

This is the best feature:) You are gorgeous and sooo funny!

Lea said...

you are so freaking adorable!!! How are you still wearing regular pants???

I agree, the task of doing a baby registry is so overwhelming! My husband and I went to start ours over the weekend. We tried out the different strollers they had in store, and omgoodness, why are they so complicated?! I thought my hubby was going to break them trying to fold/unfold them. Needless to say, we didn't get our registry started and just walked out of there completely overwhelmed.

Rachel said...

LOVE that sweater and red together! Holy hotness.

Haley K said...

First, you are looking fantastic! LOVE the navajo-ish print sweater with the red pants and boots...and the specs, digging' it :) And that bump, and cute as ever.

and hhahahaHA! that story of you at walmart with the mango salsa incident...thanks for making me laugh :) I may have just done the same thing. And I hope those darn shin pains go away soon :( But *cheers* to packing lunch for the hubs...brownie points I tell ya ;)

Andrea said...

Haha I totally do the whole answering-someone-who-isn't-even-talking-to-you-thing all.the.time! ...and I'm not pregnant. Love your pants and boots! Adorable

Check out the saweet GIVEAWAY!!!

Jenny Lynne said...

I just have to say 2 things. You are my fave blogger ever. Seriously. And second you are a perfect example that being pregant doe snot mean you have to give up style. I have a feeling you will be a fashionable mom too. :o) Congrats and much love.
Jenny Lynne.

Gabrielle said...

So agree about the registrys, I managed to totally avoid a baby shower, which was all good by me!

You will have a great birth. Ignore the horror stories. So pleased to see you are doing hypnobirthing. I did it too and it was great. So much easier to accept the pain and stay calm when you know it is there to help you and it is part of your body working to birth your baby, not something to be afraid of or fight against (which just makes it seem more painful). I also labored in a birthing pool, which was so great for relaxing me, and the hypnobirthing breathing exercises and relaxation exercises gave me something to focus on through each contraction. Enjoy your birthing experience :)

Gabrielle said...

And, so excited to see you have a midwife. We are from NZ and everyone gets a midwife there (for free too!), you only see a doctor if you have medical complications with your pregnancy or birth.

Arianna said...

I look forward to this post every Thursday.. You are beautiful! I'm so excited for you and your husband :)

Vasilieva said...

love love love that black and white sweater, you look absolutely stunning

32 weeks!
"Women who don't tell me their birthing horror stories" ha ha...
I have a wonderful one, no horror, just hapiness and pure life.

Jessica said...

i hate it when people tell me their birth horror stories, i'm already a worrier I don't need to worry about anything else!
I agree with the registry thing, I totally feel like i'm asking my friends to buy me things, but if you don't your bound to get yellow onsies with poo bear all over them!
I can't wait for your baby to arrive! I'm due in 2.5 weeks! So excited to meet our little guy too!

Just Me said...

You don't even look preggo in the first picture! Cute sweater and LOVE the red jeans.

K2tlin said...

I totally forgot that you have a baby coming when I was looking at the first picture of this post. You work miracles with your clothes, woman!

Anywho, lovely as always :)

Lila Tueller said...

Looks like you pretty much nailed it for lots of folks out there in blogworld. I've been where you are 7, count 'em...7 times. You look really cute pregnant, as you have been told a gazillion times I'm sure. Consider yourself one of the lucky few!!
Good luck with it...and that cut little bump, it's gonna get a whole lot bigger.

Lila Tueller said...

I meant "cute" little bump. It's probably not so "cut" anymore! haha

Alayna said...

you are absolutely adorable! this is my favorite outfit you've posted. perfect.

Yay for these posts, they are my favorite! And, I can totally relate to the order online dilemma, Jackson Hole Wyoming really makes you become a pro at online shopping. Ask me any store and I will tell you their shipping/return policy's & better yet - who offers free shipping!

Sierra said...

Rain on the roof is awesome :)
Those horror stories can be pretty scary... I love your shoes! I wish I could get my hair to do that...it's way to frizzy and thick. Thanks for being so funny :) Sierra

Your "Awkward and Awesome Thursday"'s are my favorite!

Ashley said...

I hate all registries. But my reasons are probably weirder than yours....

I love the color scheme in your place!

Erin said...

Nothing worse than a horror story right before you deliver.

People please!!!

And those shoes are killer. I must have.

Eden and Brandon said...

I was looking through your blog (which I discovered via a pin on pinterest) and I freakin' love it. The first thing I noticed was how modest and classy you dress. Then I saw that you are LDS. I also work as a secretary, went to byui, love fashion AND want to go back to school to study graphic design! You are my inspiration! It is nice to see someone with similar interests and values who is living the life they want. Your blog has motivated me to stick with my goals. Thanks!

You seriously rock pregnancy! Not at all surprised, missie! I am a tad jealous you can still wear your non- preggo pants at this point...but trying to be happy for you!:)You look lovely! I hope I get to meetup with you before I move from the DC area...We leave in a couple months.

If I was your neighbor, I'd have you over for White Chocolate Gingerbread bars and I'd tell you my wonderful, magical birth stories again and again...have I said it already? I loved pregnancy, I loved birth and I can't wait for your little one to arrive...you two will be such great parents :)

The milk...it's pretty crazy to make liquid gold, isn't it?!?! :)

Linka said...

You look great! Your bump fits that sweater perfectly. And yea the with holding of horror birth stories is pretty awesome, too bad I did not get that experience.

Kailee said...

I'm sitting in a quiet computer lab and just burst out laughing at the awkward grocery store moment. SO FUNNY! That just made my day and I'll probably be laughing about it for the next week now. ;) Don't worry I do things like that ALL the time, so it makes me feel better that you do too ha.

What a stunning outfit- I love the red pants combined with the tribal inspired top! I've never seen such a stylish maternity outfit! I was cracking up about the awkward Walmart story- that's like when someone waves to you and you wave back only to realize it's to someone behind you...

Loved your comment about staring people down hard for a seat to sit on. But really? You're pregnant! People should be offering their seats FOR you!
