I Have Super Powers

Yes, you read the title right. I have recently acquired some new super powers. Sometimes they are a delight, and other times they can be quite taxing.

What Super Powers do I have? A heightened sense of smell for one, along with that comes a sensitivity for foods and a delicate palate. Oh yes, and I now have the ability to need a nap, all of the time. What? That's not a super power? Okay you caught me. I guess I'll just have to confess.


I'm Pregnant

Yep, what I thought at first was sudden surge in super-prowess turns out to be a baby. I'm due in the middle of September. 

Why do I bring this up on a writing blog? Because I now have extra motivation to get my book done. I would be working on it more if it wasn't for that dang sickness and my unlimited napping powers. Here's hoping I get something accomplished before then.

Go ahead, tell me your big news of the week. I'm dying to hear ;)

Congrats!! My son was born in mid-September :o) Definitely not fun being huge and pregnant in the summer, but the weather is usually perfect in the middle of September--great for outdoor birthdays :o) Again, congrats to you and your husband! Wishing you a smooth and uneventful pregnancy :o)

You and me, babe. The supernose is still ongoing for me. And naptimes? Definitely. Yesterday I conked out on the couch after dinner--for 2 hours! And then I still managed to fall asleep 2 hours later for bedtime.

CONGRATS!! CONGRATS!!! and GOOD LUCK!

Congratulations! That is so magical! I remember those days of heightened smell. With my second child it was really bad. To this day chicken noodle soup smells like old people to me. What can I say? I just never got over it.

Definitely a super power! Congrats girl! Enjoy your naps and work when you're awake! That's what I would do, anyway :)

Christa Desir said...

Wow! Congratulations! I've heard pregnancy is very motivating. Me, I mostly napped thru mine;)
My big news of the week is that I sold my book. But you already know that:)

Ava Jae said...

Gwen said...

Steph Schmidt said...

Eeeee congrats!!!! That's so exciting.

Laura B said...

Congrats! I saw a t-shirt that said, "I can grow humans, what's your superpower?" And definitely get that story done. It's so much easier to write when the baby is sapping your energy from the inside than when he's out and taking all your attention, keeping you up all night, wanting to be held, etc. I finished my ms less than a week before my baby was born. I'd recommend getting it done sooner.

Hi there, I'm stopping by from the Campaign!

First off, CONGRATULATIONS! I can't imagine how excited you must be. Good luck working on the book, I can only hope that when my time comes, I'm not in the middle of a huge project, because I'm praying that I won't inherit the morning sickness my mother had >_<.

Congrats!

Popping over from the campaign and agree you will have SUPER powers beyond just smell. Mommies have a sixth sense that keeps their kiddos safe and sound too :)
