It is time for those monthly confessions!!!

–I hate talking politics. If I am being  honest, I can’t stand either Trump or Clinton. But what I am going to say is this…When there is a debate or something going on, can we all agree to just focus on the issues and facts?? Can we please stop talking about what Clinton is wearing, or how her clothes fit, or if she smiled or not, or if she seems like she is in a bad mood or whatever else the fuck society is being shallow about. This isn’t a fashion show it is the run for presidency. I can’t stand how a woman cant be upset about something without someone making a comment about how she must be on her period. Or when you stand up for yourself, the first response is oh did you talk to someone about this. No asshole, I am capable of having my own opinion and speaking out about it.

–I am at that point in my pregnancy where it is obvious that I am pregnant AF  and I have all these random people coming up to me and asking me when the baby is due, what it is, what her name is, asking if they can touch my belly, whatever. I get uncomfortable sometimes because I am like…I don’t know you. Pregnancy is a weird thing at times. It is like you lose your rights to personal space and privacy.

–I am struggling between I don’t want to gain any more weight than necessary to keep the baby healthy and eat all the things because I am pregnant and I can. I will let you guess which side I let win more often than not.

–Sometimes I look at the notes I wrote for myself on my phone and I have no clue what they actually mean. Clearly I thought it was important to make a note about it, but why didn’t I go in to more detail??

–When my SEO widget tells me that the readability of my post needs improvement I get defensive. You don’t know me. I can read my post just fine, thanks.

    GIRL YES. so agree with what you said about sticking to the facts politically. I am so irritated with this election! That is crazy that people are coming up to you like that… people have no boundaries!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer October 5, 2016 at 8:10 am

    I am not super excited about Clinton, however, I agree that they need to leave her the hell alone with those comments. Men do not have to deal with that bullshit. If she doesn’t smile, she’s a bitch. If she does smile, she’s snide. Wtf. Anyway. One of my fears about pregnancy is people touching me! Why do strangers think that is okay?! Like touch me and you’ll lose your arm… ha!

  • Reply Laura October 5, 2016 at 8:50 am

    I, too, am very thankful for all the ways to eat potatoes. I mean, try to think of a way I won’t eat them — you can’t! I say eat all the foods, and then worry about it later. You only get this reason for a few more weeks, and honestly, it’s the best excuse ever. 🙂

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine October 5, 2016 at 8:58 am

    Yes yes and yes! The VP debate was ticking me off last night but I was even more ticked that This is Us was not on because of it! I feel like that racoon! My husband and I joked that while the boys have actually lost weight at college, we are the ones gaining the freshman 15, LOL! And now you’ve made me hungry for fries, ha ha happy Wednesday!

    • Reply Jennifer Massey October 5, 2016 at 10:37 pm

      I was ticked for a similar reason– Scream Queens wasn’t on.

  • Reply Sierra October 5, 2016 at 9:24 am

    I feel the same way about this election. I’m not happy or confident in either of them but comments that don’t even have a relevant point are just unnecessary. That was one of the main things I couldn’t stand about being pregnant. People are so inappropriate! And while majority of them probably don’t mean anything by it, what they fail to realize is they probably weren’t the only person to say something to you that day and by the time you get to them you’re at your breaking point. Seriously laughing at your funnies! Happy hump day 🙂

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky October 5, 2016 at 9:47 am

    jesus i’m a horrible link host…i did not do a post because i thought today was tuesday.

    but that raccoon meme hahaha!

  • Reply marie October 5, 2016 at 10:08 am

    I was so annoyed that This is Us wasn’t on last night because of the debate. I was all set to watch and really looking forward to it. So disappointed which has been the story of my life lately anyways so…That raccoon meme was hilarious, that is so me. One of the girls I work with is pregnant and she doesn’t want anyone to acknowledge it, so whenever I see her, I ‘m always like Ugh, where do I look, what do I say. I usually just look over her head and say hi. People can be so inappropriate, it’s like myob!

  • Reply Katie Elizabeth October 5, 2016 at 10:13 am

    I find this election kind of terrifying – I don’t really like either of them and I have NO idea who I’m going to vote for in just a couple of weeks… it’s scary that the future of our country will be in the hands of one of those two! Out of ALL the options!!!

  • Reply Teh Megan October 5, 2016 at 10:41 am

    -Our conversation made the blog! Obviously I agree about the politics thing.
    -I feel exactly the same way about food right now and I’m not pregnant. Since I’m not working out right now, I am trying to limit what I eat. But at the same time, right now all I want is more toasted marshmallows (I figured this was better than listing out all the stuff I actually wanted so you didn’t get cravings for items mentioned).

  • Reply Rebecca Jo October 5, 2016 at 10:46 am

    Ahhh – I’m all the person who is a spider bodyguard. I hate when people kill them.
    I have to learn to contain myself. I’m always one of those people who want to ask questions about pregnancy & touch a belly. Its good luck afterwall 😉
    I get so sick of the double standards for Clinton… I will be so glad when this election is over.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo October 5, 2016 at 10:46 am

    after all – not afterwall. what the heck

  • Reply Tania // Run to Radiance October 5, 2016 at 10:47 am

    I hate when people remark on what Clinton is wearing too. This isn’t the academy awards, people!

    Girl, treat YO SELF. Eat all the things! 😛

  • Reply carly October 5, 2016 at 11:39 am

    Admittedly, I can’t remember any of the previous presidential debates, but this year it seems to just be about personal attacks vs focusing on any issues, which makes me sad. That raccoon meme is hilarious!

  • Reply mandie October 5, 2016 at 11:44 am

    I typically do no watch any of the debates but I was at my grandparents’ last night & they had it on – it hurt my ear holes. Ha, ha! They wouldn’t answer the question given & they would talk over each other…it was like I was sixteen again & watching The Real World. Ugh!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista October 5, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Haha YES the candidates suck, but the media is overhyping everything but the actual issues which should come as no surprise. And I feel you on all the pregnancy questions, the amount of times people have asked when I’m due, if the nursery is ready, if it’s a boy or a girl, what her name is, etc… is driving me batty! It’s like they’ve never seen a pregnant person before 😛

  • Reply Stephanie October 5, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    I love the raccoon one!! Pregnancy is strange, it seems to do strange things to you. I’ve experienced the opposite. Hate kids, could not care less how someone’s pregnancy is going or what they’re naming it, definitely no interest in touching the belly, and pregnant women seem very offended by this. They start offering up info I have no interest in. Not like I say anything negative, I just don’t acknowledge the pregnancy at all, unless I’m giving them my seat on a train. No idea why they get so mad, so if you have any insight from the other side, please share!

  • Reply Dani October 5, 2016 at 12:38 pm

    The only thing I like about election years is Twitter and watching the debates (Presidential not VP- I don’t really care about them). But all the crap about who’s sniffling and who’s coughing and what they’re wearing is ridiculous. Um, I hate random strangers approaching me for any reason, so touching and asking details like that would be out of the question. I didn’t even want to touch my friends’ bellies when they were asking me to- it’s just so weird and I don’t know- personal or something. Love the raccoon one, though I’m not sure if I’m more raccoon or sloth lol.

  • Reply kristen October 5, 2016 at 12:39 pm

    omg yes to all the potatoes! sorry i didn’t link up today, life is a bit crazy right now (with the might be selling the house thing).
    i kinda cant wait to be pregnant so i can eat all the things. and then half of me is like i’m gonna be so healthy for my baby but the real me knows that’s not true.
    also seriously yes with the old person inside me that wants everyone to be quiet.
    oh yeah i can’t wait for weird people to be weird with me when i am pregnant because i am the rudest bitch out there. hahaha. they are never gonna ask to touch another person’s belly ever again.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native October 5, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    I would never dream of going up to a pregnant woman and asking to touch her belly! I’m scared if/when I’m pregnant in the future that someone will ask me that on the wrong day and have to deal with some wrath…

    That raccoon meme is TOO accurate. Same with the spider one.

  • Reply emelia October 5, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    Oh yea I’m soooo over the political commercials. I put notes in my phone too…all the time. And yes, half of them are while I’m laying in bed at night so I don’t know what they mean either. Glad I’m not alone 😉

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders October 5, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    Haha! I hate the readability widget too! Just because I use bullets or numbers in my post doesn’t mean it’s not readable! And I think that when we decide to start a family that I’ll be dying to eat all the things too! You don’t have any other opportunity to really do that except when you’re pregnant.

  • Reply Audrey October 5, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    Hell yes to point no. 1! And I know that people are bent out of shape about her reaction to her husband infidelity, but we elect men ALL THE TIME that have cheated or gotten divorced (multiple times) or date inappropriately. I hate the political female standard. Ridiculous.

    Ew. Tell people to back off! You have privacy and pregnancy rights! And eat all that food 😉 You deserve it!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm October 5, 2016 at 3:34 pm

    Ohhh yes, I had the same big pregnancy struggle as you. I went into it thinking I was going to be really careful about what I ate, but then I gave into the cravings and hunger a liiiittle too much. As long as the baby (and YOU) are both healthy though, that’s the biggest and most important thing!

  • Reply cara October 5, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Hahaha I’m the same way with the SEO tracker on my blog. Even when I think it’s the bomb dot com, they’re like “needs improvement”. Also, I completely hear you on the losing personal space when you’re pregnant. I never have liked people touching my stomach, like pretty much the only ones who were allowed were my husband and 2 year old at the time. Everyone else it was just weird/awkward. Side note, are you doing confessions on a specific day during the month now? I love linking up with you and Kathy, but thought you guys stopped for awhile.

  • Reply Jackie October 5, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    People invading the privacy of pregnant women is a huge pet peeve of mine. Just because someone is pregnant does not give a stranger the right to ask personal questions or touch someone you don’t know.

  • Reply texerinsydney October 5, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    I don’t even know what a SEO widget is, so you’re a step ahead of me. ha!
    I love the raccoon meme.
    I’m pretty sure I’d be the biggest pregnant woman ever and eat all the food.

  • Reply Ericka @ A Quiet Girl's Musings... October 5, 2016 at 8:51 pm

    Oh, I’m so over this election and these candidates. I completely agree about how we as woman can’t be upset about something without our periods being brought into consideration. I mean, really… Are we just not allowed to be upset because we’re upset?

  • Reply Biana October 5, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    Oh man the raccoon e-card – TRUTH girl!! Haha the inner person wanting everyone to be quiet – that is me to the max!! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 5, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    You and I both agree the debate with just cringing! Ugh that must suck with everyone and their mother wanting to get in your personal pregnancy space. I don’t think I’d mind my very close family and friends but beyond that, it’s definitely not appropriate for people to touch your belly and ask semi-personal questions.

  • Reply Katie @ It's just too late for all that.... October 6, 2016 at 9:43 am

    I’ve never been pregnant, but I think it’s crazy how random strangers just come up and start touching you. It’s one thing for family/friends to put their hand on your belly or something (with permission, of course), but random strangers? No.

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World October 7, 2016 at 11:33 am

    I will never understand why random strangers all of a sudden think it’s ok to invade someone’s space just because they’re pregnant. I’ve never been pregnant but I have no idea how I’d react.

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! October 8, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    Lol I also get super defensive of the SEO Readability! I always think, “Seriously, just deal with the passive voice!”

  • Reply Amy Getz October 12, 2016 at 10:02 am

    Yes to people bashing such trivial physical details about anyone . . . it’s so not about what a person looks like that matters. I keep trying to instill this in my children! I know you don’t want to gain too much weight . . . you look amazing btw . . . but do give in to some of your cravings now because losing weight will be on the forefront of your brain after she’s born. Love all the funnies – but the raccoon is perhaps my spirit animal. That’s sad. LOL!
