On pregnancy

Oh pregnancy, how I've missed you loved you forgotten what you were really like.

My vow to run throughout at least the first trimester was broken as soon as the morning sickness hit, and was quickly replaced by a vow to eat nachos with abandon and ignore the needs of the household.

Well, I am taking care of Logan but we have definitely been watching more tv than usual.

This time around the morning sickness has been worse, the heartburn has been better, the tiredness has been worse, the weight gain has been better (i.e. not 12 lbs in 12 weeks), and still I'm showing already.

Revenge of the Nachos.

But overall we're doing good. The evenings have been rough but the upside is I have an excuse to not cook. Logan wears his pajamas 24 hours a day which is pretty much his dream anyway so nothing wrong there. And I tell myself that Tyson appreciates the higher balance in our bank account since I only leave the house for mandatory outings and haven't had the energy to craft. Of course the overage might be going to Taco Bell...

Yep, we're getting through this.


  1. HEY!! CONGRATULATIONS! SO EXCITING. I think you're having a girl!

  2. I love this! I am so excited for you!

  3. Ahahahaha! You and me both! And I don't even feel really sick anymore...

  4. I'm showing already too. Glad I'm not the only one!!
    Very excited for you.
    I'm 13 weeks and still feeling sick. Last night I made stew and I could. not. choke. it. down! Bret loved every bite of his.

    Wouldn't trade this for anything in the world.

  5. LOVE THIS! you're so darn cute too! we'll get through this pregnancy. sounds like we're in similar boats!

  6. Congratulations, very exciting news! Hope you start feeling better soon!

  7. This, too, shall pass. I am thrilled for you. Do you need more little blankets or burp clothes or would you like to do an edge yourself. Oh I forgot, you are too sick and too tired. I will do some. We love you.
