Disneyland : Through the Eyes of a Pregnant Woman

So I have to admit I hate being referred to, or referring to myself as a woman. I have never liked that word for some reason? I would prefer lady or even girl, no im not 8 but yes science has told me I am a girl so why not use it. But for this title I thought it appropriate to use woman, im still sort of in limbo I suppose. Im only 20, well 21 in a few weeks (and yes I already wish I could go back in time, being younger you dream about your future but never imagine yourself actually getting older) and I obviously feel that there is a certain level of maturity that comes with being pregnant. Yes im choosing to go the adoption route which some may see as me not taking responsibility for my actions, whatever! and im still really young. At the same time I think im being completely responsible and dealing with my actions to the best of my knowledge and feelings. More or less what im getting at is although I dont like the word woman or women, Im growing up faster than I can count. You never really see that so I think its kind of neat that through this waiting process I am able to see the subtle changes it has on me.
Again with my tangents! Blerg, sorry!
So went to Disneyland and had an absolute blast, yes I had a blast even though I couldnt go on the big rides. Funny thing when I went in to my doc apt the other day he told me i couldve gone on splash mountain because it doesnt really have an affect because your sitting by yourself. I have no idea how scientifically or medically it made sense but I was like oh well probably wouldnt have gone on it anyway. Not a big fan of splash mountain, though not opposed to it. Anyway went on Autotopia and afterwards my cousin was like did you see the no pregnant people sign? Obviously I had not, but no one stopped me my first thought was really out of all the rides at Disneyland they decide that Autotopia is possibly dangerous? Probably shouldnt have gone on Peter Pan in that case, I mean it does and a little dip and is a bit jerky! I was perplexed.
Well I know I made my last post a picture post, but do you really expect me to go to Disneyland and not take pictures? So im posting a bunch or random pictures, possibly a video if I can figure out how to make it work. This is my disclaimer. In my last post I put up pictures of family members and might have mentioned names, im sorry if this made you uncomfortable (no one has told me it had but just in case) for lack of a better word. So im putting up more pictures and I will try not to use names, if I do put up pictures of your siblings, parents, children, spouse, or someone you think may not want there picture up and Ill take it down I have no problem with that. I wouldnt want to put anyone in danger ya know. Just let me know! 
Tarzan tree house, I remember the Swiss Family Robinson tree seemed way more fun, but maybe that because im older now and dont appreciate fake wholes in trees?

Arent both of these girls gorgeous? I think so, they both have breathtaking jealous! 
Monsters Inc. ride. how I got them to take a picture is beyond me
Monsters Inc. ride again, the glow in the dark ones are so fun
Part of the gang waiting in line for Midway Mania the Toy Story ride at California Adventure.....BEST RIDE EVER! I beat my guy cousin the first time, BOOYAH!
Disney's version of a rave! Haha they called it the Glow Fest, actually pretty cool very bright, fun music. Although they were selling beer in the middle of the street which is something I've never seen Disney do, but I think they were trying to target the older crowd although I'd say it was more or a teen ish thing? 
High light of California Adventure, their new World of Color performance. It was absolutely incredible! Completely and utterly puts the Bellagio to shame! I like it better than Fantasmic over at Disneyland and that could possibly be because I've seen Fantasmic 5+ times. Anyway just incredible if you go, do not pass this up although dont stand near the front. Afterwards we walked up to the front and the whole area was completely soaked!
This one is sweet because it looks like the water is swirling the air
This one is cool because its so clear (my camera has issues sometimes) and yes its on water
You can really see the laser in this one
You cant have a Disney show without a little/a lot of fire, we were pretty far back and could feel the heat from the blasts!
So I hope this video of the show worked, its pretty spectacular!
I tried to lighten this the best I could sorry
Sad day, its the last day and somehow we still had energy to keep going
Sometimes it amazes me how long my hair is, although I need a cut badly. Unfortunately for me I choose to leave my hair stylist in Utah hahahah!
On a few of the bigger rides I would watch the littlies because it made sense if someone had to sit out anyway why not watch them ya know? I was perfectly ok with it got some weird looks since im pregnant and look really young and than it looks like I also had another kid, it was amusing! Besides I'd be proud if my kid was this adorable! So ya I had fun playing peek-a-boo and keeping occupied while waiting.
My FAVORITE part of Disneyland! besides my favorite rides which are Peter Pan, Pirates, and Indiana Jones. I love walking down main street seeing all the people walking and smelling the wonderful smells! 
So as a pregnant person I learned California Adventure has nicer bathrooms, but at Disneyland if you want a nice one its sort of behind Autotopia next to the imaginears building inventing building thing. Worth walking to! Best place for cold water is at the Critter Country food place? Its next to Pooh Bear across from splash mountain, but you have to go to the bottom level drinking fountain. It was ridiculously cold I was impressed. In California Adventure the best bathroom is sort of over by the Bug Life Land but in the eating court next to it, its right next to the only chinese food place in the park! Funny thing about this whole being pregnant at Disneyland was the first day was the worst. Like killer! We got there at probably 1030 11ish and didnt leave until the park closed. I did have an awful sleep the night before which im sure played a part in it, but I know that at 930 I wanted to cry I was so exhausted and my feet hurt. So I said maybe we'll get a wheel chair for tomorrow or something. So the next day I wore my flip flops first instead of wearing my tennis shoes than switching to flip flops and I never changed out of my flip flops, I swear by Rainbows expensive, but so worth it I have 2 pair 1 I've had since my sophmore year of high school and one thats about 2 years old. I wear them constantly! BUY SOME! its worth the 40 bucks youll spend. After the second day we took a break day and went back on saturday which again I was fine and my feet hurt less the last day than they did at the end of the first and second day? myabe my body just needed to adapt? im not sure but I thought It was crazy. I was so glad to go back to Disneyland and make new memories since the last time I went was with mr. irresponsible (thats what I know call him I think it fits well :D) and who better to go with than my immediate family, and my extended family who love Disneyland, it was fun finding some of the hidden mickeys and all! I seriously cannot wait to go back already. I know I talk about Disneyland often but its because I have yet to have a bad experience I mean yes I have memories that hurt now because of life choices and all but all in all each time I go its a blast! Now I want to go Christmas time to Disneyland, been to DisneyWorld Christmas time, but I prefer Disneyland (everything is closer I dont have to go to 3 different parks to go on the rides I like) so I cant wait to see what it looks like! When I go ill let everyone know so you can all come with me:D This is worlds longest post and im not going to apologize because it makes me "high happy" writing it, so ill apologize if you didnt get to read it all because its too long;D Thanks for reading!
