1st Trimester

Baby Can Zumba

4 1/2 weeks: 12 1/2 weeks: There’s a legit baby in there 🙂 It was so crazy to go to today’s ultrasound and see a REAL baby. No lentil, no little bean… a baby. And my experience with today’s ultrasound compared to the one I had almost a month ago: night and day. No cold…

June 26: Trying to detour Worry City

So the entire time I’ve been pregnant, people have been commenting on how “chill” I’ve been about the whole thing. I’ve been eating what I’ve been craving, rolling with the morning sickness and fatigue (which is starting to go away!), stopped reading baby books and websites 24/7 and am trying to relax a little more.…

Preg Fashion

I’ve been having a bit of a fashion dilemma lately. My bump looks more like I ate a foot-long (on NON gluten-free bread haha) and maybe a few donuts. People may wonder if there might be a baby in there, but it definitely isn’t to the point where it’s obvious. In this in betweener limbo…

June 20: Nausea tips

I have a love-hate relationship with morning sickness. I love it because it makes me feel like something is actually happening, but on the other hand, it’s not exactly fun to feel like you’re going to lose your lunch at any second of the day. I’ve only actually gotten sick a handful of times and…

June 16: A weird amazing dream

I have a lot of crazy dreams, but usually have the most bizarre ones over the full moon. The past week, it was a full, gorgeous moon and I had my first baby-related dream. I was sleeping in a room somewhere that looked like a hospital, but not quite. It had the same sanitary florescent…

Things that helped me

This post was originally posted last Wednesday and like my other family posts, was unedited at the time of posting. I didn’t do the best job phrasing a couple of things, but here is the new edited version- all of the info is still here 🙂 While the Pilot was deployed, I really wanted to…

June 12: Belly Rubs

I’ve definitely been warned about other people touching my belly, since the word is out that we’re expecting a little one. The thing is, I kind of love it. Like really love it. Maybe it’s because the only people to touch my stomach so far have been close family and friends (not randoms at the…

The Birth Team

I think it goes without saying that by far the scariest part of pregnancy is the birth itself. When you’ve never experienced it and always hear horror stories from other people, it’s easy to let the fear overcome you. When we first decided we wanted to start trying last spring, the Pilot was deployed a…

Let’s talk about stretch cream

I can’t believe I still haven’t written about how I told my mom about the little nugget, since it really is an interesting/random story. It was about 4 days after I found out and the Pilot and I decided it would be a good idea to tell the madre since she was here, he was…

June 3: The sweetest sound

Today I finally had my ultrasound! I was a WRECK leading up to it because I was so anxious to find out if everything was ok. 9 weeks is a long time to wonder, ya know? I texted Sabrina and Beth each about 20 times and they were so lovely and encouraging- I needed it,…

May 20: Success and fail

Hi friends! Long time, no update over here. There really hasn’t been too much to report, besides the usual things and trying to hide the fact that all I want is eggs and toast on the blog, but today I had my first prenatal appointment. It was both a success and a fail. I had…
