11th Week

March 14, 2008

It’s been a long time since my last post. Sorry about that. Most of the time I’ve been sitting on my couch watching T.V. trying not to throw up.

As the 12th week approaches, I am slowly feeling better, intermittent with only a few bouts of sickness. My stomach is getting bigger and I can’t wear any of my jeans.

Updates:Two days ago I went to a pregnant modeling agency.

The next day I went to an audition for the CW show, Gossip Girl. I felt so nauseous and the casting office was warm to the point that made me sweat profusely. I’ve noticed that my nerves come on a bit stronger now that I’m pregnant. My heart pounds much faster and my breathing even becomes a bit labored.

I went into the casting room and did my audition. I felt out of sorts and horrible. My words felt rushed, I felt completely uncomfortable and I saw the casting director scribble furiously on my headshot. I imagined it said: “NO NO NO NO!”. As I left the office, I chucked the script into the trash and wondered if this was the beginning of the end of my acting career while I’m pregnant. When I got home, I got the call from the manager that I had a call back! WHAT?

10:00 AM

This morning, bright and early I headed to Silvercup Studios in Long Island City. I did my scene. The director, producer and CD giggled a little at one point, which I thought was cool. But again, I have no sense of how I did. I also wonder if people are spotting my growing belly. Either way, I honestly felt I did the best I could and prepped the best I could. So we’ll see.

11:00 AM

Headed into Manhattan where I auditioned for a play. I wasn’t as nearly nervous and hadn’t even had a chance to prep for this. They called me in about 4 or 5 times, partly because they probably were interested in me and partly probably because they needed my character for the other actors. Again, we’ll see. Afterwards I went by one of my managers and dropped of headshots.


Headed to a go-see for a financial company. Ran into a fellow actor, DS, who I adore. The casting assistant took my picture and headed home. Took a nap.

Today I’m not feeling too great but mentally I feel good about my work today.
