Week 27 – Crazy Pregnancy Dreams

Seems like not much happened with the pregnancy this week, but when I looked back to write my note, I realized the baby is getting bigger, more active, and more intrusive. haha. I’ve been having to get out of bed to pee, which I don’t appreciate, and sometimes she pushes so hard into my ribs

Week 26 – and Happy Easter!

We did our pictures today after coming home from a friend’s Easter dinner party, which was very nice. I love just getting together with friends and relaxing with some good food and great conversation. After writing this note, my husband and I settled onto the couch for a little bit of “Heroes” via Netflix instant.

25 Weeks and Counting…

I just gotta say, it’s hard to take decent photos when you’re congested and sniffly and your eyes are watering and you’re sneezing and… Yeah, when you’ve obviously spent a lovely chunk of time outside in the gorgeous weather over the weekend, and “caught” allergy symptoms out there. Stinking pollen! Also? I win the prize

The Melon

I went grocery shopping on Tuesday and bought a great-looking ripe, heavy (so theoretically juicy) cantaloupe. Wednesday I cut it in half and ate half of it. Thursday I cut up the other half and put it in my lunchbox to take to work with me. Me to husband, “I’m sorry I ate the whole

24 Weeks Pregnant

I can’t believe there’s only 16ish weeks left. Less than 4 months. Time’s a-ticking! This coming Friday I have an appointment at the hospital, and then that evening we’re having our first Bradley childbirth class with a local instructor. Still haven’t scheduled a massage though! Everything is going smoothly.

23 Weeks Pregnant

Not my favorite photos of the series, and not my favorite shirt in the world – I just had had several dark shirts in a row and wanted something brighter in the picture. haha. I feel like I’m getting huge, but I know this is only the beginning! …and I’ve been sitting here with this

22 Weeks, a little late

This weekend I went to San Francisco with girlfriends, and got back late last night, so didn’t take my 22-week pictures until today. But here they are, along with my note to Baby Girl. Does anyone have a pregnant-yoga DVD to recommend? I feel like I want to stretch and stuff, but the stretches I’m

21 Weeks Pregnant and She’s a Girl!

I don’t’ need a lot of words for this one! I’m 21 weeks “along” now and our sweet baby is doing just fine. We got to see her on Thursday, and she is measuring perfectly and all of her organs are developing well and in working order. She wiggled around a LOT during the anatomy

20 Weeks Pregnant, Tommy Emmanuel, and Primal Chicken Fingers!

Yesterday I hit 20 weeks in this pregnancy. A lot of people will say, “Wow, 20 weeks! You’re halfway through! But that’s only part true… while a pregnancy may last 40 weeks on average, for some reason (as I mentioned before) it’s measured from the first day of the last menstrual period, so for the

19 Weeks Pregnant and Happy Valentine’s Day

I guess I should’ve done something cute like dress in pink and hold a giant heart or something, but today it’s blue and just me. This is a fun project so far and it’s really making me reflect on THIS WEEK versus letting the whole “journey” blur together – I like that. About the banana

18 Weeks

Yesterday I “turned” 18 weeks “old” in my pregnancy – with the weird way that pregnancies are measured at least in the US (from the last menstrual period), that means my baby is 16 weeks along. I’m definitely out of the first trimester, though still have some lingering “effects”… sleepiness, exhaustion, food aversions… but not

I’m back! With a little surprise.

I’ve been away from the blog for more than one reason. I guess I should air them out and let you in on my life, right? 1) First there was the move, and the unpacking and settling-in. That excused me for maybe a week and a half. 2) Then my husband was away at survival
