23 weeks…  movin’ and groovin’

23 weeks… movin’ and groovin’

It’s been a week of non-stop action.  We have officially relocated to the address that we will bring our baby home to in 17 short weeks (give or take).  The move began on Thursday, when two amazing friends, Michelle and Heather showed up to spend hours loading a fairly random assortment of clothing, books, food … Continue reading

21 weeks…  And so much is still possible!

21 weeks… And so much is still possible!

21 weeks feels quite official.  We are past the halfway point and things are going remarkably well-  I even had a small child come up to me when I was at lululemon on Saturday (i’m officially at a “ta-ta tamer” point in life) and tell me that I have a “big, round belly” “no no!!“,  her … Continue reading

19 weeks… the penultimate (round 1)

19 weeks… the penultimate (round 1)

This time next week, our little blog will be emanating a vibrant glow. Finding out in just three days whether we have a male of the species, or one of the female variety on the way feels a bit surreal.  My husband is super-excited about having a little girl that we can enter into some glitz … Continue reading

Myths, Martyrs and Monsters of Pregnancy.

We’ve made it to 15 weeks!  According to the fruit-chart at thebump.com , baby is now the size of a navel orange (which, incidentally, is very different from a “naval orange”).  My first reaction to this developmental quasi-fact is shock; I find it more than a little surprising that I can have any sort of growth inside … Continue reading

were women pregnant before the internet?

were women pregnant before the internet?

The internet is a wonderful thing…  with a click of a button (or two) I can take care of banking, catch up with family members living thousands of miles away and download Adam Sandler’s classic, The Wedding Singer. Since finding out that I am expecting my first baby, the internet has taken on a whole … Continue reading

13 weeks

13 weeks

Today, I am 13 weeks pregnant.  According to the undeniably cute staff at http://www.thebump.com, I am a “peach”. So far, I have gained 10 pounds-and lost 2, for a grand total of 8.  From what I understand, none of this is directly attributable to baby, and more likely a result of my random phase of … Continue reading
