37 weeks…  If our baby were a goose…

37 weeks… If our baby were a goose…

She’d be fully cooked this week.  Somehow, 33 weeks and roughly the same amount of pounds since discovering that this little girl was on the way, we have arrived at full term.  About 1/2 of the babies in our group prenatal class for July have arrived happily and healthily, and i’m looking around the apartment … Continue reading

32 weeks… Shakedown Breakdown.

32 weeks… Shakedown Breakdown.

She’s busy blinking, looking around, grabbing things, making faces, practicing his breathing, peeing and listening to everything around her—pretty much exactly what she’ll be doing for the first three months of her life, sans the adoring audience and the flashing camera.” -from 3D Pregnancy … Continue reading

22 Weeks… Snoogles and Stretchmarks

This week, I tried to be good.  Very good.  No poutine, No donuts…  We did go to The Olive Garden for lunch on Sunday, but that doesn’t really count because a) it was Ken’s treat and b) it was a post-Church outing.  I think there’s some kind of special dispensation for that or something.

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
