Our New Birth Plan

Misty and I had dinner last night with Jon and Chrissie, some friends of ours since our time at Duke. Over Indian food we discussed Liza’s imminent birth and the whole concept of birth plans. Misty and I haven’t really put together a birth plan — we’re lazy, and it’s too much like work. But […]

It Turns Out, Being Pregnant Isn’t Much Fun.

This is a post that contains a bit of TMI about my personal physical situation. Don’t read the fourth paragraph if you don’t want to know the gory details.

So for the past two days, I’ve felt like crap. There just isn’t any nice way to say that. It’s how I’ve felt and I know […]

Baby Liza update (37 1/2 weeks)

I went to the doctor this morning and the baby? she is coming sooner rather than later. Everything looks good and the doctor says that when labor starts, she is ready for me to go. I would give you the details about my cervix but I’m guessing that you are probably not that interested. (If […]

My Husband Rocks!

Last weekend, I jetted off to Nashville to hang out with the gals and Stephen hung out with Eli. Today, I had a baby shower lunch to attend and a church function immediately following. So once again, Stephen was in charge of Eli pretty much all day. (Now granted this morning wasn’t that big of […]

Baby TBA update (36 1/2 weeks)

Well my appointments are now on Tuesdays instead of Thursdays so this was a very short week. But the short week came with big news. I got one of my regular nurses (I’ve not been seeing my regular nurses because they are tied to the doctor so since my doctor has been out, I’ve not […]

Baby TBA update (36 weeks)

I went to the doctor yesterday and all is well. My BP was good. The baby’s heartbeat was good. I’ve not gained any more weight, which she seemed pleased by. My regular OB comes back week after next and I am really looking forward to seeing her. It seems strange to miss your doctor but […]

Baby Shopping: Almost Better than the Actual Baby

I have a thing about bags. Some of you know this already. I try to keep it under control but it’s hard really. They call to me and ask me to take them home. I have a dollar limit that I don’t like to exceed at any given purchase and I try to only buy […]

My Little In Utero Drama Queen

Friday afternoon I was lucky enough to get a nap in. Of course, I had to sleep on my sheetless bed because I had them in the dryer, but I can’t really be that picky when the urge to sleep hits and Eli is asleep and I don’t have anything I have to accomplish for […]

Baby TBA update (35 weeks)

Yes, that’s right it’s the weekly march to the end. I go to the doctor every week from now until the baby comes. Which is saying something considering my doctor is on maternity leave. I was scheduled to see the head doctor from the practice this morning but the nurse came in and said she […]

The Vomit You Want

So everybody I know is pregnant. Ashley, Jessica, my optometrist, my dentist, and my OB/GYN (She just had her twins), another woman from our Sunday School Class (brings the current total in our class up to four), a friend from playgroup and three other moms from Eli’s Mom’s Morning Out Class. So when I say […]
