Big News!!!!

Infrequent blog posts, no craft projects, and just generally, nothing much on my end of the internet.  I have been a really crummy blogger.  I'm sorry, but I have a really good excuse.

I'm pregnant!!!!!!
I took three tests just to be sure.
Yup, preggers, knocked up, bun in the oven.  And I have to say, it has been rough.  People say you get tired when your pregnant, but I had no idea until it happened.  I'm not just tired, I'm done.  I can do nothing.  All I want to do is sleep and eat.  I actually called my midwife almost in tears because I was so tired I thought there was something wrong with me.  This is my first baby so everything is new.

It does not help that I work eight hours a day and spend another two driving to and from work.  That leaves very little time for cooking, cleaning, and shopping for groceries.  With the extra sleep time I need now, I just don't have the energy or time to craft and blog.

Anyway, I'm in the last week of my first trimester and I'm beginning to feel better.  As my midwife assured me, once I have a placenta it will help me do some of the work.  I'm counting on that.

So, on to the fun stuff.

The week I found out I took this picture:

One month later I took this one.

I'm not sure if there really is a difference.  Can you tell?

In an attempt to anticipate any questions you may have, here is my info.

I'm due on November 16, (my mother's birthday!).
I'm not going to find out the sex.
I'm planning a home birth (and very excited about it).
I have had so many crazy food cravings.  Mexican is out (most of the time) and cheese is in.  Indian is really the only kind of food I want to eat, and for desert ... rhubarb pie lots and lots of rhubarb pie.  I even froze some rhubarb in case I need some later in the summer (do you know how hard it is to find rhubarb?  It's here for a week and then it's gone.)

I would love to hear your stories about pregnancy.  The more I know the better.  So lay it on me.


  1. Congratulations. Glad you are starting to feel better and the tiredness will continue to get better.

    The pictures and blog will be nice to have as "a diary" of your pregnancy and so priceless for you to look back on.I love how the girls post a picture each month as to their "change"!! I am so excited for you.

  2. yay, congrats to you guys! so exciting! sorry, no stories coming from me!

  3. Congratulations! My son was born on November 16th which was his due date. Only 5% of babies are born on their due date. It is a great idea to take pictures of yourself, I spend a year and half pregnant and I have 2 whole pictures of me pregnant.
    Congrats again,


Make me smile and leave a comment!
