Still Pregnant, and That’s Okay

Still Pregnant, and That’s Okay

Yes, I’m still pregnant. I’ve actually been getting that a lot, that whole sad head nod, sympathetic tsk-noises, people asking me if I just want the baby out already thing. And honestly? Things aren’t really so bad. I’ve definitely not yet had any of those […]

So much to do!

So much to do!

The heat is on. The heat of less-than-5-weeks-until-the-due-date, anyway. And the due date is just a reference point, not a hard-and-fast rule! ARGLE BARGLE! We’ve got soooo much to do and so little time to do it! The main project we’re trying to get accomplished […]

BONAFIDE!

BONAFIDE!

I received this quaint little piece of paper in the mail yesterday. I received my diploma from Kirkwood late last week, but that was a little anti-climactic compared to this guy. I was telling Kevin last night that I’m sort of amazed that I was […]

Garage sale haul!

Garage sale haul!

  This weekend was pretty righteous, as far as garage sale hauls go. I managed to swindle my way into getting a bunch of stuff that’s pretty awesome (and cute to boot!) for not very much money. Setting out with $40 and my pal Alicia […]

Weighty matters

Weighty matters

Somebody made a comment on a pregnancy/motherhood message board that I read today that really resonated with me: I don’t so much trust my body, though. It’s hard to be fat and pregnant and not feel that the other shoe is bound to drop at […]

OMG, SHOES (Pt. II)

OMG, SHOES (Pt. II)

Baby’s first pair of shoes! It’s probably a little premature, but come on! We found these at a garage sale today for 50¢, so basically we had to buy them. The same garage sale had baby Keens, but I figured we should stop at one […]

Let the swelling begin!

Let the swelling begin!

Oh, pregnancy. You’re killing me! So, I’ve started to swell. I’d say that it really started in my hands, or at least my right hand, my mousing hand. In healthcare, we call it “dependent edema”, which means you start retaining water in places that sit […]

Thirty-one Weeks and Ready to Party

Thirty-one Weeks and Ready to Party

Aaaaaaand, five weeks later I finally decide to update again. HI! I’m 31 weeks pregnant now (that’s one week shy of 8 months, for you laypeople who don’t tick your pregnancies down by week). As of a week and a half ago, I have finished […]

Pregnancy Pains

Pregnancy Pains

Well, I’m now 26 weeks along. Maybe it’s about time I started writing about this whole pregnancy thing. I’ve gotten to that point in my pregnancy where I can’t sleep on my back any longer. I mean, technically I was supposed to stop lying on […]

World = Rocked

World = Rocked

I guess I announced this elsewhere, but I might as well keep most of the baby talk over here. I’m 21 weeks along now, and also in the middle of my final semester of nursing school. Needless to say, I’m kinda busy. I want to […]
