baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

This week is especially significant to me because I have been reading that if she was born now, she would have at least a chance at survival. I find that so crazy amazing! Ironically, it’s also the legal abortion cut off date in most states. Greg showed me this picture of a baby born at 24 weeks (who didn’t survive) but lived an hour and is clearly, miraculously formed. It’s so amazing to think that our […]

Greg and I have been having a morning debate on whether or not we’ve ever seen this supposed 10.5 or 11.5” grapefruit…. does she seem to be getting smaller in the fruit world?? I’ve also been trying to introduce her to a plethora of my favorite musicians with her new and developing hearing abilities. I do hope she grows up to love music as much as her parents do although hopefully she won’t turn out […]

Guess what! TWO strangers congratulated me this week. I’m an official pregnant lady now! How far along? 22 weeks Weight Gained: 14.5 lbs Symptoms: Tin soldier syndrome. At least that’s what I feel it should be called. I get up and get stuck in the bending over position. Or turn too quickly and have to wait for the rest of my body to unhinge and catch up. I think it’s probably related to the sciatic nerve but who […]

How far along? 21 weeks Weight Gained: 14 lbs… aaaand so much for the suggested one pound a week Symptoms: Sleepy Movement: Part of our birth class homework each day is to set aside time to practice deep relaxing. Oh. my. gosh. I look forward to this more than I can say. So does Little. She gets very excited about it and forgets the part about relaxing (which may just be another reason I look forward to it […]

Oh my goodness.. We’ve hit (roughly) the halfway point! Welp, that went fast! How far along? 20 weeks Weight Gained: 12.5 lbs Symptoms: Along with all the previous symptoms, we have added a numb, tingling foot to the mix and a little girl who likes to sit low and jump off that there bladder of mine, making the toilet my new, most frequently visited friend. She can move up now. An overall feeling of huge has set in, […]

How far along? 19 weeks Weight Gained: 11 lbs Symptoms: I no longer own a bra that fits :( This has elicited muffled chuckles from my husband and a lot of empathetic “oh honey’s” but really it’s quite frustrating! Looots more stretching in there… loooots more being really tired… looots of back aches.. and everything smells strongly. That’s about all though ;) Movement: Oh she’s getting stronger, that one! Greg even got to feel finally! He gasped and then got […]

Oh my, where do I start? Hallelujah! This was the first weekend that my husband didn’t have to work ONE BIT in oh I don’t know, over a month! I miss that guy so much. We had the most relaxing Saturday morning with, did I mention? no work! We went to the camera shop to see if we could get my beloved camera and lens fixed but they said it would cost as much as […]

Oh there you are, Peter! Aaaand it’s back ;) How far along? 18 weeks Weight Gained: 9 lbs Symptoms: So very tired… like very first pregnant tired. Oh and good ol pregnancy brain has kicked in. I may be feeding my dog 4x a day… I don’t know. Same with my prenatal vitamins. Did I take one today? I don’t know. Movement: Oooo! I love it! We know Little has at least one limb. Hooray! Food cravings: Still been craving […]

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 […]
