Month 9 Round II

  Yes, it’s a fake fruit BUT where would I find a pumpkin in February? The final update and picture, I can’t believe how quickly time has gone by. The first several weeks were miserable but since October it’s really been smooth sailing. I can’t wait to see what this little man looks like and … More Month 9 Round II

Month 8 Round II

  It’s butternut squash month and the reality that Sam will be here in two months is becoming more and more real. He’s easy to care for now, I don’t know how I’ll manage when he’s on the outside… How far along?  32 weeks and 6 days Total weight gain/loss: 20lbs+ I’m sure and I just know it’ll … More Month 8 Round II

Month 7 Round II

An occasional round ligament pain but rarely. Ironically, Lucas’ former elusive movements have increased so I guess he still has room and is enjoying life. I … More Month 9

Month 8

This kid’s movement is consistently inconsistent and I can never tell if he’s a narcoleptic like me, chill like Danny or distressed. The fact that recognizing … More Month 8

Month 7

I’ve reached the point where my shirt kind of hangs there… the transition from second to third trimester has begun and I’m not sure I’m ready. The second trimester was a breeze. I’m still on the meds but they work so I can eat what I like (but with the luxury of no cravings). I … More Month 7

Month 6

Six months seems like forever and no time at all! I don’t want to wish time away – especially since I love the holiday season, quality time with Danny and sleep – but I can’t wait to meet our little man. It becomes more real every day and we both are anxious to hold him … More Month 6
