Laura
Hi. Welcome to Big Fat Positive with Shanna and Laura. This week on the show we've got our weekly check ins. We've got internet insanity where we talked about explosions and bears and forest fires. Oh my! And we have our BFPs and BFNs for the week. Let's get to it.

Hi everyone. Welcome to the show. Hello. Hello. So we start our show every week with our weekly check in. Shanna Tell me what's going on this weekend what we are you in your pregnancy now?

Shanna
I'm 28. I can't believe it. Definitely in that third trimester now I don't think there's any question about it. I don't know... there's not too much going on. I have started thinking about - a friend asked me about what I want to do about a baby shower. Oh yeah. Cuz you know, this is my second kid, and the first one is a girl, and this one's a girl and I just have been like, I don't know I don't know. I'm not one to be like everyone come celebrate me. Give me presents. So I'm

Not 100% comfortable with the idea but also at the same time, like it's been kind of a long road to get to where I am just getting pregnant, you know, was kind of tricky for me. Yeah. I in a sense, I just want to have like a celebration like something fun, like getting some people together and just celebrating. So I think we might do a sprinkle. Have you heard of sprinkles?

Laura
I think I've heard of sprinkles. But I can also deduce what a sprinkle means. A shower is a full-on people bringing you a ton of gifts and it's a big party. I'm guessing a sprinkle is a little bit of a shower. Yeah, I think so.

Shanna
I think it's just like a smaller in scale, and I don't know, just like sprinkle me with loves Oh. Presents um, because you know the first time around. Yeah, you have to I just put everything on my registry so I didn't have anything for a baby. And now like I have so much stuff that I can reuse for my second but there's still some things that I can't, like... I don't know what... washcloths... baby washcloths and like little towels, they kind of just get worn out and they aren't soft anymore. So that kind of stuff. I would love to get new and some other things that my daughter still using, like her little noise machine, and I'll need some some new things. And if people are feeling so inclined, they can buy them for me. But yeah, I don't know. I still feel like so weird about maybe I'm just too stressed out and thinking about a zillion other things nervous about like having a sprinkle thrown for me. And like, I'm like, Are people going to come there? Are they going to think I'm just like grubbing for presents?

Laura
Yeah, because I have a similar inclination. I don't for someone who like does, you know, performing and stand up and storytelling. I don't like being the center of attention strangely, and like I felt the same way about my wedding. I had a moment where it was like to even want to have a wedding. Either way. We want to be the center of attention. But first of all you deserve not just a sprinkle but a shower. You deserve a deluge of love from people. And yeah and you know, I think it'll be really fun and everyone wants to get together to celebrate. Especially if you don't make it fucking annoying, you know?

Shanna
Well I'll try not to. I have to say I personally am not into really into baby shower games and crafts and stuff like what else is there left to do? I guess eat and drink like I'll supply or we will supply the host will supply yummy things to imbibe but other than that, I don't know what what do we do? What do we do at this thing, Laura? Man Yeah, okay.

Laura
Talk. I mean, like part of it is also that it's an opportunity for you to get together with your friends before things get crazy right? Oh yeah. True. So I'm all for you just having a hangout, like no one needs activities. I did do a baby shower, Keri's baby shower, who we interviewed a few weeks ago. Our pharmacist friend and the only game they played was it was like a quiz. Like they give it out sheets. And it was like, can you answer these questions about common Nursery Rhymes like, you know, in Hickory Dickory Doc, The mouse went up what you know, or whatever it is. I don't, that could be wrong, because I'm really bad at nursery rhymes, although, apparently it was better than most people because I want a bottle of wine.

Shanna
Oh, not well, not really relevant to your life situation yet. Yeah, because you're paying you you're choosing not to drink. It's not Yeah, I'm choosing not to drink. That's very true. That's just a callback to last episode. I think the answer to that is clock for it. Yeah. hundred dollars. Alex.

Laura
Yeah, I think you're correct. Based on just my memory. I think that's correct. But, you know, and they got more difficult and there were some obscure ones, but that was kind of fun, because, you know, it's kind of a bunch of nerds at a party. To You know, we all we all like getting graded. I don't know about you. I love getting a grade. So yeah, I do like taking a quiz I have to say.

Shanna
So anyway, that's what's on my mind. What about you? Where are you this week?

Laura
Well I am at week 24, which I feel like listeners should be able to do the math at this point, considering we've been four weeks apart. The whole point is like, you know, yeah, we 24 which is exciting. Just keeps chugging along. I feel like you know, I'm getting to the point where I know that it's extremely premature if I had a baby at this point. But it's also a little reassuring to know that some babies that are born at this gestational age survive, right this is my dark my I'm just always like, Oh good. I have a somewhat viable baby like every week that goes by I'm like closer to liability.

By the way, I've had zero complications in this pregnancy, but I'm just always thinking of you know, worst case scenario, not morbid way I don't think just in like preparation will way but anyway so I don't know 24 just feels like a plausible gestational age. Not that I want him to come out right please do not come out little baby but it's not just in your head like it's an actual thing that they say that's like once you reach 24 its viability just because like maybe the lungs are a little bit more developed that I think so yeah like could survive in like the NICU at this point yes and i think there's a lot of hospitals like 24 is the cutoff where they even try to make heroic efforts to save the baby it might be 22 and some hospitals but the point is that you know they would try which I mean I really hope it's not going to happen but you know it's just I don't know why it's a super reassuring to me yeah and yeah that's pretty straightforward week. I got my glucose test and I'm still waiting on the results. So after hearing your nightmare of the three hours test I am really hoping that it goes well. Fingers crossed.

Shanna
So I guess we'll get the update next week you will get the update next week.

Laura
I yes and i i was hoping I would have it by the end of this week but they you know, they take their time I do feel like if it had been really bad they would have called me because I took it on the Wednesday and then it they said they would have it Friday or Saturday but I don't know anyway still not here. Yeah you know it's so funny everyone preps you for that glucose drink being super gross except for you You told me it tastes like liquid otter pops so yummy It was really good. everyone's problem well maybe we maybe there's different brands I don't know but I was delicious sugar water like what's wrong I don't know

Shanna
I guess all these people in LA or just used to just drinking there straight kale juice and it's just too much for them to drink otter pop liquid.

Laura
Maybe I started tend to get green in LA to make people feel like it's a healthy choice. Exactly. Your vegetable juice glucose beverage. But yeah, so that was fine. And then the the big thing I did this week was after spending every morning. Just like rifling through my drawers trying to find my maternity jeans and my maternity tops. I finally gave in and just put all my normal clothes that don't fit me anymore into a box and put it in the garage.

Shanna
Good. Good. I did that too. It really clears the clutter.

Laura
Oh my gosh. Now I know when I look at my drawer that Oh yeah, that does fit as opposed to like there's nothing sadder than like pulling out a pair of like jeans and thinking they're your maternity jeans and then looking at them and realizing you have to lean back over and get the other ones are like being like this shirt is pretty stretchy. I'm going to try that on you put it on like you have your whole midriff is show which is a look.

Shanna
It is a look. I mean you can rock it.

Laura
You think oh my god. I kind of want to be that. That lady who just like who walks around Pasadena with my bare belly showing just being like, what I'm hot.

Shanna
Yeah. And you are. And you know, people need to see the beauty that is pregnancy.

Laura
Mm hmm. Yeah. I think this is a real thing that I'm going to do it all take shares. Put it on our Instagram page. Hashtag Hot pregnant lady. Hot mama hot most. All right, but that's my week. Alrighty.

Shanna
Our next segment is internet insanity, where we talk about crazy, weird, funny, unusual things that we found on the internet related to pregnancy. Laura, have you uncovered anything noteworthy recently?

Laura
Oh, I have I have to tell. I okay. So to begin with, I just need to say that I understand pregnancy is a fraught time for people. there's so many recommendations about what you can and can't do and what you shouldn't. You shouldn't do. And it seems like everywhere you turn, you realize, like, you know, you thought you were fine eating a salami sandwich, but no, that's gonna kill your baby. You know, like, all this stuff. So.

Shanna
Dang, I ate one of those the other day. Yeah, everything's.

Laura
It's all over, Shanna. No, but you know what I mean? Like, it's just so much anxiety provoking things around. So I understand that we're all functioning at this base level of anxiety, constantly vigilant about what is safe and what's not safe there said I found an amazing post and you know, I just I just want people to know that this is loving tease that the teasing is all in a loving sympathetic tone rather than a making fun of this woman town. But I thought it really exemplifies the bizarre anxiety that we get about every little thing. So this is in my baby center birth club. The title of the post is, is it bad to get tickled at five months pregnant? Well, yeah. And you know, I had to click the there are some headline, there are some topics on baby center that you have to click on right here. And this was one of them. So here's here's the text. My fiance's best friend was tickling my feet, because I'm like a sister to him, and I kept moving my legs a lot upwards, not to where I hit my belly, but a little bit because I'm very ticklish. Please tell me that I won't miscarry because I'm 22 weeks, three days and we have been trying for three years and are excited. I know I'm very excited about my baby boy coming soon. So I'm trying everything possible not to lose him. So...

Shanna
That's so sad. This poor lady.

Laura
It's heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time because yes, like she's on clearly really concerned. I don't think a lot of people were there 11 pages of comments, by the way, 11, 103 comments on this, and some people thought it was a joke that she was kind of trolling, but it seems clear that she really was seriously worried about it. And then there are a lot of comments, not about whether the tickling is good or bad, but questioning why her fiance's best friend was the one tickling her feet.

Shanna
Well, I have to say that is the first thing that crossed my mind.

Laura
So yeah, it's I wouldn't I don't want to judge other people's lifestyles, but it is something that is a little concerning. Like I can you imagine if Corey's best friend and best man at our wedding, Mark, was tickling my feet. so weird. I mean, it'd be weird for Corey. It'd be weird for Mark's girlfriend. Yeah, yeah, there's something very intense about tickling. Uh huh. Yeah. I mean, maybe maybe the whole like because he's like a brother to me. Which I get like my brother when we were little would tickle me. I think it would also be a little weird. I think. I don't think my brother is tickled me in my adult life.

Shanna
I don't think anyone is tickled me in my adult life. I know. I I don't recall being tickled.

Laura
You know, there's a documentary about tickling, which I haven't seen yet. I did watch that. That was one so you're not into the tickling fetish, or whatever. Tell me a little about that movie, because I really want to see it.

Shanna
Oh, I don't really remember. My mind is like a sieve. Especially when I'm pregnant. Things go in, things go out. I remember. I watched I think it was on HBO. And it was documentary about tickling. There you go.

Laura
I think I'm gonna have to watch it and report back though. This will be like a homework assignment. Yeah. But anyway, I just want to reassure everyone. I'm not a doctor, but I can feel pretty confident in saying that tickling is safe at five months pregnant, right? Probably at any point in pregnant me. Yeah. Not country indicated. Mm hmm. And yeah. Tickle away if that's your deal. Tickle man tickle. So anyway, that's. That's the crazy, crazy shit I found on the internet. What about you?

Shanna
So for various reasons. Recently, I was looking at a stock photography site, looking for images of pregnant bellies. And very quickly, I mean, like, page two or three of my search, I started seeing just multiple pictures of huge pregnant bellies completely and intricately painted. Oh, in designs and pictures and images. And I was like, what in the heck like, for instance, here is a picture of a woman's big belly. And it's like someone has painted like a zipper. Like her belly has like unzipped. And there's this cartoon baby like with sunglasses on, like, popping his head out. Like why someone so would chose to have their pregnant belly painted like that. Here's one big pregnant belly painted with like a cartoon Superman, like busting out of a brick wall.

Laura
Oh my god. So is this a theme? Like they're they're like the sort of is it trompe l'oeil, oh I can't pronounce anything in French, but like we're like it's like faking three dimensional movement or whatever

Shanna
like I feel like that's giving these these paintings way too much credit I mean it like a 2d painting but a of that like trying to suggest that and they're not all like that. I mean, like, here's one of like to fish like looking lovingly at a baby fish. Here's one of the the world all the countries and like a stork flying over. So what I'm here to say is that maternity belly painting is a is a thing. It's a thing I found companies What do this they'll come to like baby showers parties

there you go you need is an activity for your sprinkle done and done

oh my gosh So should I hire a professional or should I just have my friends paint my belly kind of.

I feel like you have a really talented group of friends. It could be like a collaborative art piece, right?

I think everyone would be real into painting my stretched skin. What do you think?

Laura
I mean, I'm down I'm up for whatever to be I mean I will also most likely be there I assume I'm getting invited here sprinkle Yes. So you know we could do side by side competing we could have two teams Oh, turn it into competition

Shanna
like each team paint so different half of my stomach

Laura
Yeah, or like we should get a theme and like whoever interprets the theme better,

Shanna
man, so many possibilities, so many possibilities. Oh my god here. Okay. So I just have to point this out. And I'll link to this this woman's belly painting page. An example she has is a pregnant woman with like a crop top or big belly sticking out. A big pot of oozing honey is painted on her stomach it says honey like you know poo bears like a bucket and there is an actual brown bear in the photo standing next to her look looks like it's licking the honey jar

Laura
wait like a that's not painted on her stomach there's a bear

Shanna
no there's an actual bear standing next to her looking at the painted a honey jar on her pregnant stomach. God I hope that's Photoshop because I do not think that's recommended during pregnancy. So proximity to wild animals maul you to death.

Maybe she wrote in about it to her Birth Club and they gave her the. Okay. Who knows?

Laura
Dear baby center, I diligently avoided soft cheeses, deli meats and all alcohol. But I'm wondering is it cool to stand next to a wild animal that might kill me? It's for my pregnancy photo shoot. I think the real impact if it's for your pregnancy photoshoot Go right ahead. This is ridiculous.

Shanna
I have to link this where you guys I have to send this to you.

Laura
Yes, you really do that. It's like that kind of reminds me of in the news recently. There was that guy? I think it was in Arizona who started a massive forest fire during his gender reveal party. Did you see that?

Shanna
No, I missed that. What? Oh, my God.

Laura
So he got this thing that was marketed specifically for gender reveals is like a box that contains like explosives, which again, not a great idea, right? But you're supposed to stand far away from it and when You shoot it with the gun from a distance....

Shanna
Oh my god. Arizona keeping it classy. I'm from Arizona, by the way.

Laura
Yeah. Shanna has to talk as much as she wants on Arizona because she's from there. So, and you you lived there till you were in your 20s. Right? So, yeah, you did your time. So it was I'm pretty sure it was Arizona, Arizona and New Mexico. It was like it's one of the because I know because he was a he, I think is a US border patrol guy. And this was in his off time but so he put the explosive box you shoot it and then when it gets shot, it's supposed to explode with like pink or blue smoke, right, which already is like there's just a lot of things that aren't great ideas but he started a massive forest fire from us like mass uh, you know what I'm gonna you're gonna you're typing because I am going to look this up. forest fire gender reveal. Let's see. border patrol agent pleads guilty to starting why. Live in gender reveal gone wrong. He has to pay $8 million. Whoa. What city? Was that in? Let's see.

Shanna
So it was maybe Tucson?

Laura
It was Tucson. Like it's got to be Tucson.

Shanna
That's so sad because there's really not much forest left in Tucson. Like there's some like beautiful mountains that there and I think what they already had a big fire and wow. Oh. wildfire, or maybe it wasn't forest. Maybe it was just like desert wildfire.

Laura
You know what this, I guess happened in April 2017. I guess it was just in the news because he was he pleaded guilty. Like his trial was recently. Wow. But yeah, it was in 2017. And it burned more than 45,000 acres. Oh, no. Yeah.

Shanna
So what was it a boy or a girl?

Laura
The most important question.Oh my gosh. You know, this article does not say the final line of this art pieces. The baby's gender was not immediately clear.

Shanna
Yeah, because the smoke is black. Yeah, yeah.

Laura
Oh, man. So, okay, people don't do that. Don't, don't,

Shanna
Maybe balloons coming out of a closed box will be just fine.

Laura
Or, you know, opening envelope and tell people or maybe just, you know, believe that gender is a social construct. And it's not that important to have a big party around it. What do you think about that?

Shanna
I think it would probably save you $8 million, $8 million. Poor guy he was just trying to have a good time. Oh, and and back to the belly painting. I was going to say, you know how like I was describing a couple of those as like a like babies or Superman bursting out of bellies. It reminds me of a Halloween costume I've saw online and I bring this up because Halloween is coming up.

Laura
Halloween is coming up.

Shanna
Yeah, and as pregnant people, I guess we have to have special costumes that accommodate our ginormous stomachs. But it's like, like, you dress it. Have you seen this? It's like you just like, I don't know. Like so on doll appendages to your stomach to make it baby is like bursting from your stomach. Yes.

Laura
I love it. I kind of love it. I mean, mostly because I I'm not into like the cutesy I've never been into like the super cutesy Halloween costumes. I'm always a fan of like, really gory Halloween costumes doesn't like is Halloween I'm sure that will change next year since I will have a small child and probably having a lot of blood on my face is not gonna be appealing to what a 10 month old but I kind of like that but you know what's funny is I had seen that because I've been doing a little research trying to figure out what to do for Halloween and I still don't know and I'm we're both going to a friend's house right? Are you You're you depending on how you feel right. But we are going to our friends Allison's house in theory. And so I was like, Oh, you know what? Like, how often Am I going to be like hugely pregnant on Halloween? I should take advantage of it and do something really funny. And I saw that one I thought was funny. And then Corey took it a step further. And he's like, Oh, no, I have an idea. What have you just have like a baby dangling between your legs hanging from an umbilical cord. And I was like, too far Corey, and he doesn't understand why you think that's not okay.

Shanna
But the appendages busting out of your stomach are okay. I feel like because one is pure fantasy. And one could like just straight up happen.

Laura
Yes. Thank you. Yeah. Yeah, it's too real.

Shanna
Like, like, that's actually how it comes out. I know they don't burst out like your, your belly button. Like the the alien alien.

Laura
Yeah, yeah. No, they don't do that. So it's so don't no one's actually, actually going to think like, oh, that baby's coming out with all of its appendages punched through her stomach. And, you know, but I don't know. It feels a little little disrespectful to the universe to be like, yeah, I'm just going to show up with a baby hang dangling between my legs. Yeah, I don't. Yeah.

Shanna
Now, if you showed up with a baby dangling between his legs, that could be funny. That could be funny.

Laura
You know, then I have seen painted on Halloween costumes, but I i nixed those immediately. Because I don't want to walk around with my stomach exposed all night. Yeah, totally. No. Also, like, how do you get to the party without those seatbelt? rubbing the paint off? No, it's not a good it's not a good option. Do you have any ideas? Are you going to do anything?

Shanna
I'm probably actually not going to do anything because I am a party pooper my life overwhelming me. I can barely like figure out lunch. And also I think with Steve I might go to dinner that night as a date night. My mom's in town, and she's going to babysit. And so I think we're going to do like a belated anniversary dinner. And then go to the Halloween party. So I'm not going to show up with baby appendages to my dinner, I don't think. But last year was the last time I was praying. I was really fun. I just had a T shirt of a chihuahua face. Yeah. So my belly like poked out. It was like the dog snout. And my dog is a Chihuahua. And so we both had like matching bandanas and I brought my dog to the party and I dressed up as my dog. And it was super cute.

Laura
It was super cute. I was there I was very cute. will have to put a picture would you be cool putting a picture on our Instagram? Yeah, sure. Yeah, totally. Yeah. Easy. That was a very cute and I feel like also you've come to parties in the past like with like the cute little cat ears and just like put three little eyeliner lines on your cheeks and call it a day. And that's been really cute too.

Shanna
So I am the literal laziest when it comes to Halloween. I love the theory but I can never get my shit together. So That's why I don't think it's going to happen for me this year I just

Laura
yeah I don't think I'm gonna have time to get anything elaborate together but I would like the theater major and me just really wants to put something crazy together maybe I should go is beyond say remember when she did that crazy photo shoot like the flowing gown so that's gonna be really hard but beautiful I know but I could be beyond say for a day yes well I want to show well we'll see when when it happens we will post it on the Instagram oh yeah

so we close out every show with our bf PS or BFS our big fat positives or big fat negatives for the week Shauna What do you have for us this week bf and get to

Shanna
you know what's hard as hell these days. What giving a urine sample at the doctor Oh really? Oh my God, your belly, my belly. I'm not speaking for all people but my belly is just in the way it's too hard I can't see anything anymore so I just have to like put the cup and aim like even aim hope for the best

Laura
they're already awkward because I feel that toilets are never designed properly to like really get a good a goal anyway yeah so I can totally see how that's a problem I haven't reached that point yet and you have to give one I don't know about you I have to give one every single time I go to the doctor

Shanna
oh yeah every single time and it's just it's hard the bigger your stomach gets the harder it is like this last time I was just like I don't know if anything's going in the cup Let's hope so. I did make it it did good did succeed.

Laura
Good I mean I guess you're in a bathroom so you can always wash your hands you just it's just meant to prep you for getting paid on all the time when you when you have a kid

Shanna
Yeah, yeah, exactly. I mean, I'm also stressed and like if I'd missed the cup, they're not gonna have anything to test nine. What do I do then? Let as if I'm not gonna have to pee again and 15 minutes. That's a stupid fear. I don't know.

Yeah that is I was gonna I was confused at first because I was like urine sample urine sample all day like five minutes I can give a urine but I see the mechanics of it is a little tricky. Yeah you know I have to say that so sometimes that my doctor they give me like the more sturdy cup that has like the screw top but other times I think they're just testing protein or something. They're not doing a full year analysis. So they just give me like a like a normal like plastic cup.

like a mouthwash cup?

Laura
Yeah, yeah, I write my name on the side of it. And I have to say like, I have so much fear coming out of that bathroom like and going around the corners of the nurse's station that someone's going to come around the corner real fast and just like hit you. Open Cup it's really yeah the most anxiety provoking there

Shanna
I feel weird that you have to walk around the office with an open cup of your year and I just have always just left mine in the bathroom or they have like a door like a little door like a put it on a shelf you just walk around with your

Laura
I mean it's like five steps you know it's like literally

Shanna
it's five steps too many

Laura
it's a really nice bathroom though it's very large nicely appointed but yeah I have to carefully I like look I do that the you know when you're in the shower when you're in the grocery store and you are like you have a big car of stuff and you're like rushing and then you like come to the end of an island. You have to like really like look both ways before going as Yeah, it's like that. I have to like look both ways. Make sure there's not some doctor nurse whipping around the corner.

You need like a traffic director for that. Anyway, what about You BFP or BFN?

I have a BFP, which is an update from last week which is that my my pubic synthesis pain Mm hmm. Oh I was pausing so you could laugh at the word pubic synthesis you know what I really tickled by it

Shanna
I have grown grown up since last week.

Laura
Oh, I have you know, I'm I'm very impressed at your maturity thing. But it's, it's, it's a bit better. It's not gone. But it's getting much better. And I think it's because I'm doing a couple things. I found a bunch of like physical therapy style exercises I can do on YouTube, specifically this one with the yoga block where you like squeeze the yoga block which means your knees while lying down and that's really been helping and just keeping an eye on like how much activity I'm doing and not overdoing it. And that's been helping but what's really been helping and is a super sexy development. In my pregnancy that I am now regularly icing my groin. oh yeah oh yeah yeah I in Corey has even been nice enough to get me my ice packs wearing them over so I can sit cross legged with a ice pack of migraine. But I gotta say, like, you know, we think we've talked about this before. How pregnancy is just like an effort in dripping. You are just, like, constantly strips you of any sort of pretense of modesty or whatever, right? It's just, yeah, it just chips away. And this is just another chip away of like, you know, I can't imagine when we were first dating. If I would be like, Hey, Hey, babe, I'm just gonna sit here and put an ice pack on my growing in front of you. I eat ice cream and, like, watch the crown on Netflix. But, uh. You know, marriage and time and all the other indignities you know Know you know he's been in the room He's great. He goes to every single doctors appointment with me which is so sweet of him I now and so, you know the the at the beginning when you're getting like the trans vaginal ultrasound you know he's there is like the doctor is sticking that wand up my vagina you know like yeah it just you get thrown into the deep end and the nice thing is that he is totally cool with all of it and not at all weird so it was she shouldn't be I mean, no one should be weird about it, but it's just nice that he just totally rolling with the punches and does not have any pretense of thinking that his wife is going to be some kind of sexy goddess forever.

Shanna
Just wait till you you get the group be strep test at about 30 weeks. Make sure he's in the room for that one. That's what happens. swab your butt crack your rectum to make sure you don't have group b strep before you give birth, okay, but you know, all this stuff really just gets everybody ready for the final act, which is pushing a baby out of your body, which is going to just be more dramatic than any of it.
