Left: Just after rubbing her face in the thyme bush, her latest and greatest way of scratching her face (which leads to the most hilarious sneeze we’ve ever seen). Right: the weird stare she gives when she’s on the couch, making you feel awkward. Dang – next week is March, y’all! It will be Spring in less than a month…

Keeping it Light Approaching the second ultrasound in a couple days that will finally hopefully mark our graduation from the fertility clinic, I’m making a diligent attempt to be positive. The hormones really raged this past week, causing bouts of weepiness and terror that made me question everything in my body, while my exhaustion has hit at crazy moments, including…

Reality Checks So this weekend we reach the 8 week mark. Whoa. While we were out this week running errands, we had to (seriously, had to, I have a serious aversion to this place) run in to Target to get an LED bulb and passed the baby section on the way. Since we’ve picked out everything on our registry via…

TGIF, y’all. So glad it’ll be back into the low 80s tomorrow. I’m wilting. Oh. My. Gawd. This is so rad. Turn your bike into a cargo bike, and back again. Still way expensive, but dang it’s so cool. Yep, Trump picked his running mate, and he’s – as anticipated – a hate-filled scary racist, sexist, homophobic sonofabitch. We need…

Week in Pictures

A wee bit of nesting going on, as we slowly transition our dining room / office into an office / baby quarters. There is a room already in the basement for the kiddo (2 of our house’s 3 bedrooms are in the basement) but no way are we hauling our tired arses up and down the stairs in the early…

My 4 Day Evolution So I had the mistaken impression that I’d just have one ultrasound and as long as we saw a heartbeat we’d “graduate” from our fertility doctor and head down the Midwife Highway. I obviously heard wrong as my doc definitely wanted me to come back in 2 weeks following our first ultrasound. And when he said…

Embracing Minimalism So being a hyper excited first time pregnant gal, I do admit I started looking at Baby Stuff. Being a minimalist, however, and having a few friends out there who’ve also kept it simple in this area, there actually weren’t a ton of things that I felt were truly, truly essential. So I played around on Pinterest for…

Is it Real? Who the hell knows. I’ve gotten onto the Glow Nurture App to log my symptoms, weight, meds, water consumption, etc. While I’ve yet to throw up, for a solid 7 days I had rampant case of what rhymes with Santa Maria. So that was a joy. Fortunately that mellowed out. I’m sleeping like the dead for the…

Cautiously Optimistic Well, I gotta say, in the week following what I like to call our “For Real BFP” (2nd beta), I’ve actually been really chill. Not thinking at all about the ultrasound other than wishing it would hurry up and get here so we can hopefully hear a beating heart and exhale a teensy bit more! It really has…
