So let’s start with the reason why I have been SO lazy and have not blogged since September! Oops!!
September 12th I found out I was pregnant (even at 22 weeks this is still hard for me to comprehend) ! We have since found out we are having a girl and we are pretty set on the name Stella Marie! We are both so excited for this next chapter of our lives to begin , well in all reality it actually has already begun. Awe the lovely world of pregnancy!!
Lets just say that in the first trimester I could have slept my life away and been completely fine with it! That little girl of mine sucked out every once of energy that I had! Creating life is no joke, it’s like running two marathons back to back with no walk breaks , not that I have ever done that but I felt like I had every darn day of that first trimester. The minute I walked in the door after work I would head straight upstairs get into my pj’s and park my butt on the couch and I wouldn’t move until 8:00 rolled around and I was forced to go upstairs because I could no long keep my eyes opened! My healthy eating habits went right out the front door during this time because cooking was the last thing I wanted to do so I was always looking for something quick and we all know how that works out for us in the end! NO GOOD! I was very lucky enough to never have had any morning sickness or have any nausea, thank goodness! I have heard the horror stories!
Now that I am in my second trimester I have most of my energy back but this new thing called heartburn is pretty bad these days. I have never in my life had heartburn and boy it does not feel good! I am finally starting to look pregnant rather than chunky, ha, ha, I hope so anyways!
Here is her picture at 20 weeks, those 3D ultrasounds are AMAZING!!
My due date actually falls on my husbands birthday May 27th, how cool is that! He is super stoked!
So not to bore you with any more pregnancy stuff here are other things I have been up to lately.
A few weeks after we found out I was pregnant (I took 5 different test just to make sure it was true…and all of them came back positive so after that I realized the test were not lying to me) we took a great backpacking trip up to the Berkshires with some friends and my aunt.
Thanksgiving was very good to us, we had the most beautiful snow!!
Jed turned 10!!!!!!
He loves getting stuffed animals and destroying them in under a minute.
Christmas was very productive for me. I hand made all my gifts this year for all the girls in my family. I put together baskets filled with shampoo, lotion bars, make-up remover, chap stick and deodorant, all ingredients were 100% organic! They were a hit!!!
New Years Eve was pretty awesome too! We got together with my husbands brothers and their wives and his Dad and went out to eat at a place called Goten. It’s Japanese food hibachi style and it was AMAZING!!! We hit up a few bars after dinner and everyone was very happy they had a designated driver for the ride home, ha! Even when not drinking this group is a blast to hang out with so I had just as much fun as they did and I woke up with no hangover, win win situation for me!
Jed is really enjoying reading about what the heck this thing called pregnancy is that his mom is going through, such a good big brother he will be.
So that’s what I have been up to, and although I haven’t been keeping up with my blog I have definitely still been keeping up with all of your blogs , can you really even call me a blogger? Until next time, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
