30 Weeks Pregnant {Cabbage}

Whoa.  I’ve hit 30 weeks.  Sounds like such a milestone, like hitting 30 years of age!  (Uh-uh…not there for another year + a month.  Whew!) (Average measurements: 15.7 inches, 2.75 pounds) House update:  Still, very stressful!  We heard that the current tenant who is supposed to be moving out in February, said that she’s not moving and a friend is coming in and taking over the rent.  UGH!  Then, we were told that now she is moving some time this {Read More}

The Christmas Baby Scare of 2011!

Our Christmas morning started out as expected and planned…almost.  We were excited that this holiday had finally come, and for what the rest of the day had in store for us.  We had no idea just how eventful the day would turn out to be! I woke up with some slight cramping and discomfort on my right side, a few inches below my belly button where I imagine my uterus is still hanging out.  I wasn’t in pain so I just dismissed {Read More}

23 Weeks Pregnant {Large Mango}

 My Large Mango and I have reached 23 weeks on Friday, December 23rd! (Average measurements: 11.4 inches, 1 pound) I mentioned in last week’s update that I may have to take off my engagement ring due to chubby sausage fingers…well…it’s still on. It’s snug, but I’ve managed another week with it :) I’m not sick, but as I’ve read for pregnant women, I have a chronic stuffy nose!  I breathe louder than normal and have to constantly blow my nose. The time {Read More}

22 Weeks Pregnant {Spaghetti Squash}

Another week has passed for my “Spaghetti Squash” and me…22 and counting! (Average measurements: 11 inches, 15 ounces) Mommy and Daddy (still so new referring to ourselves as parents) went to our first Christmas party “with child”…and at the same time, our last Christmas party without a child. I attended another beautiful baby shower where 6 of us ladies were expecting!  I joked that if I hadn’t been pregnant, I probably would have gone home after the shower and cried myself to {Read More}

The Kick-back Baby

We had another appointment with the Doc with the fancy equipment, following up on something he saw in our baby at our last appointment.  As predicted, the “condition” cleared up and was nothing to worry about.  I wasn’t concerned, but Daddy needed the reassurance that everything was OK.  Sleep soundly now, my dear. Mia had another fabulous photo taken of her, and AGAIN, she’s sittin’ pretty with her hands behind her head. We’re calling her “the kick-back baby”.  She just {Read More}

21 Weeks Pregnant {Banana}

Today, the little banana and I have reached our 21st week together. (Average measurements: 10.5 inches, 12.7 ounces)   I attended my 1st baby shower, pregnant.  I admit that in the past, although I have enjoyed the few showers I’ve been to, I was a bit envious of the expectant mother’s position.  I longingly hoped to one day be in her shoes, to be “showered” with so much love and thoughtfulness and to be so close to bringing another life into {Read More}
