There should be a rule....

That states pregnant women are allowed to consume alcohol while putting together baby gear.

I have attempted to put our swing together for the past two nights.  Both nights I did not get farther than seeing all of the pieces in the box and opening the huge instruction manual. 

Last night I even cried while looking at box because I was so overwhelmed.

Alex took the box away and said we will do it on Monday.  He then proceeded to help me get nice and comfy on the couch, brought me a big glass of water, turned on the Bachelorette, and hid in his office.

What a smart man he is. 

All I could think about was how much easier the process of setting everything up would be if I could have a glass (or 4) of a good red wine. 

Sigh.

I have officially turned into a big, swollen, hormonal mess.

Oh you poor thing. I happen to love to put stuff together, so for the most part, I was fine. But, that swing got me too. I had the worst time with putting ours together.

There have been several times where I wish I was allowed to consume alcohol.

Hang in there!!

I've been saying this for months! Not only should pregnant women be allowed to drink while setting up nursery items but they should be allowed to drink all 9 months along. Can you think of a time in your life where you needed a drink more than now? I can't.

If you lived in Armenia, the doctors would tell you that it's ok to have wine and beer. Not that I'm encouraging that in any way...
