THINGS!

1. Two weeks ago I found a lump in my breast. I’m 7 months pregnant so my boobs are doing some SUPER weird shit nowadays anyway but this was distinctly different and after trying to ignore it for a few weeks I pointed it out to my OB. She felt it and told me that it did not feel normal and that I needed to have an ultrasound. I am the type of person that jumps to conclusions so basically for her to recommend further investigation made me think I was surely dying. I went for the breast ultrasound and the radiologist recommended a biopsy. He was thinking it didn’t look like cancer but it didn’t look normal and the only way to find out was to stick a needle in it and take core tissue samples. I’m not afraid of needles, but I am afraid of pain and more importantly I am very afraid of cancer. Having gone through 4 positive biopsies with my mom, I was a total wreck. Last Monday we went to the hospital, the doctors explained what they were going to do and calmed me down, then stabilized my huge pregnant self on the table while they numbed my boob with a little needle, and then used a bigger, gun-like needle (it made gunshot sounds too!) to go in an extract pieces of the tumor. I got the results the next day. It is NOT cancer. It’s a benign tumor that may shrink when I’m done nursing but if it bothers me I can get it removed after the baby. There was so much relief crying going on in my house that night. I got to call my mom and tell her that she could stop worrying and that was the best feeling in the whole world. 

2. I got a job. After a total whirlwind of a phone call out of the blue, 24 hours notice of an interview, and a very tense negotiation with a brand new HR department, I got a job while super pregnant! I start on Monday and I’m really excited to get back to this company I did my internship with in grad school and I have NOTHING to wear so I’m going to be doing so much shopping this weekend.

So that’s where I’m at guys. Other than that: I’m huge, that new John Legend song makes me cry every time I hear it, I miss wine, and I don’t think you should ever move into a place with white countertops unless you want to discover how filthy you truly are.

Real pants are no longer an option
On my way to a prenatal massage that better be worth me having just shaved my legs for the first time since November
