On a brighter note...

On a much brighter note, for those of you who don't know (and actually read my blog).....We're pregnant! It's hard to be too bummed out about the winter with such good news growing in my belly. I keep meaning to post about it but, as usual, I've been a big, fat, blog slacker. Maybe this new endeavor will keep me busy with stuff to blog about:) This Thursday begins my 11th week of pregnancy, nearing the end of the first trimester. I'm already starting to feel a little bit better. The morning, afternoon and evening sickness now seems to be diminishing to mostly just evening sickness and a few waves of nausea throughout the day. I can finally look at vegetables again. Weirdest thing, there isn't a vegetable that I've met that I don't love; but for some reason, everything green and crunchy has completely grossed me out for the past month. Go figure. Pregnancy is WEIRD. All of the sudden, wham!?! You turn into some nutty, hormonally challenged wack-job who cries all the time and hates vegetables. Who knew?

We waited to tell people for awhile because of some early complications but everything is looking really great! We've had two ultrasounds and everything looked good. The last ultrasound was at 8 weeks and we got to see and hear the heart beating at both, which was amazing. I'll post the 8-monther. See if you can figure out which body parts are which:) Some days, I still cant believe I'm actually pregnant. It's so wonderful and overwhelming and cool and scary all at once!


  1. It is an exciting time for you, with lots and lots of bodily changes for both you and your tiny baby...he/she is growing rapidly, and you are providing the loving environment for that to happen. I'm so glad you're finally feeling better; however, in the meantime, there are some vegetables who are feeling very lonely....;o)

  2. I can see a head, a spine, and a wee armlet. Awwwwww.

  3. Sarah you look so adorable with your new little tummy!!!! You are a beautiful mommy!!!I'm so glad your mom can get in on such a special doctors apt...Can't wait to hear if you have a boy or girl!
