baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Aaand we have ourselves a case of the disappearing belly.. How far along? 17 weeks Weight Gained: Still 8 lbs.. Clearly those haven’t suddenly disappeared Symptoms: Practically none Movement: Most definitely! I kept trying to get Greg to feel it (because I could feel it on my hand when I would rest it there) but no such luck :] Food cravings: Donuts, cake, brownies. Pretty much anything loaded with sugar. I couldn’t wait to go to church, sadly because I knew […]

Oh Santa Cruz, how I miss you

date night / family days / terrific trips

I’m not sure why but I’ve been especially homesick lately. Luckily it was my best friends birthday this last weekend so I had an excuse to hit the road and rush upwards and onwards! Poor Greg had to stay home and work and work and work but he was ever so sweet and took me on a date to the magical land of Glendale before I left…. to get sushi. American pregnancy books say no no […]

Greg keeps saying, “I can’t wait till your belly is that big” to which I reply, “it is that big” and he goes into a mild state of shock or horror.. I’m not sure which. How far along? 16 weeks Weight Gained: 8 lbs.. Well, actually it was 10 lbs at the doctor yesterday but today it’s 8 so we are going with 8 ;) The doctor said “that’s a lot for most people but you should be […]

15 weeks really doesn’t sound like that long but 105 days of being pregnant sounds like forever! But then again 25 weeks left, give or take, seems like it’ll be here before we know it! Eeee! Little baby <3 <3 Have I mentioned we are excited? How far along? 15 weeks Weight Gained: 7 (!!) lbs Symptoms: Whoever said the second trimester is sooooo easy, I’d like to track down and give them a good glare down. I’ve had […]

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Klein!

They got married!! Here are some snippets from their beautiful wedding… I meant to 1) bring my nice camera and 2) take more but forgot the camera at home in my flurry to get out the door and well, Greg’s phone died and he insisted on holding onto mine to practice his speech : ) so there you have it. (His speech went great by the way : ) so glad that’s over with!)

We made it to the second trimester, people! And with a real bump to boot! Considering how many miscarrying dreams I’ve had, this is quite exciting : ) How far along? 14 weeks Weight Gained: 5.5 lbs Symptoms: I still have the skin of a teenage boy… and the fatigue has come back a bit. Naps are so, so good. I’ve had some truly horrible headaches this past week and who knew having a constantly plugged nose is […]

the daily life / wedded bliss

Wasn’t so bad : ) We had a lovely time barbecuing in our yard of weeds and hay, eating as many red white and blue dishes as we could think of, and taking lots of naps to try to forget we were not in fact plunging into the waters of a glorious lake : )  Did you know, the fourth is an excellent day to go out to eat? Greg said everywhere would be packed […]

Happy last week of the first trimester to us : ) How far along? 13 weeks Weight Gained: 5 lbs Symptoms: Everything makes me cry… luckily I’m usually alone when this happens : ) Movement: None Food cravings: I find myself wishing for cake quite often. If Nothing Bundt Cakes wasn’t over half an hour away with no traffic, I’d probably be there every day… with different wigs. Food aversions: Lettuce Sleep: Could use more Stretch marks? No Belly button in or out? […]
