recently i'm... [34]

I told my mom that I was going to announce our pregnancy by posting this picture with the caption:
"Yo, I peed on this."
Well, I ended up deciding that pictures of Bo with the sonogram were far cuter.
And a little more reader-friendly.

Don't worry - this is NOT becoming a pregnancy blog.
I do just want to address a few questions that I've gotten, and that will be that.
To make it more interesting, I'm including pictures of Bo.

How have you been feeling?
Overall, I've been feeling pretty well. 
Since about week 5 or 6 of my pregnancy, I've had morning sickness about 5 mornings a week.
I've thrown up more in the past 2 months than my entire life.
However, the majority of the time, I feel fine in the afternoon & evening. 
So, I really can't complain!
How far along are you? When is your due date?
I'm 14 weeks today! Happy 2nd trimester! My due date is October 21.
When did you find out you were pregnant?
March 2nd.
We were in Michigan that weekend for a wedding, and I had been feeling a little queasy a few days in a row.
Well, that morning (the 2nd), I ended up throwing up at our friends' house before we left,
and I was extremely suspicious... but then Bo threw up about 10 minutes later,
so I thought maybe we just had a bug.
Still, when we got home, I stopped and bought a test - just in case.
Are you finding out the gender? Are you sharing names?
As of now, we do not plan to find out. We'll see if we have the resolve to stick it out.
We are not going to share names.
Does Bo understand that he's going to be a big brother?
I have no idea how much he understands.
When I ask, "What are you going to be?" he answers, "A big brother!"
And then I ask, "What's in mommy's tummy?" and he says, "A baby."
Then, he'll usually ask if he can see the baby and try to lift my shirt.
 Okay, I think those are the questions we've received most frequently.
Let me know if there's anything you're dying to know.

OH - cravings. I have not had any yet.
However, the saddest news is that mini Cadbury eggs have tasted gross to me,
and if you know me at all, you know that forgoing this Easter treat
is maybe the greatest sacrifice a parent has ever made for their child.


  1. Congratulations!!! So happy for you and your growing fam :):)

  2. This is so, so exciting! I loved being pregnant- apart from the nausea and exhaustion of first trimester- and hope you have a wonderful experience! I also hope you have energy to keep blogging because I love reading what you write! :)

  3. Forgoing this Easter treat is maybe the greatest sacrifice a parent has ever made for their child" Ha! Love it!

    1. Ha! It's half a joke and half sheer desperation.
