Week 17: Bumps, Mums, & Muffins.

I’m going to cheat a little for week 17 and just share this post because I think it sums up so so much.

AND A BUMP-DATE!!

Oh and chicken wings. Week 17 is all about an unhealthy obsession with chicken wings. And J finds this so amusing because I usually hate chicken and I’ve not really wanted any meat or seafood the whole pregnancy but oh my chicken wings. Those are a whole different category completely. 🙂

peace, love, and chicken grease,

Week 15: Sinking In.

Ahhh!! Look at that belly!! ♥♥♥

This week, it’s really started to sink in and become real that I’m going to be a mama. It’s weird and crazy and so very surreal.

Baby bump 13 weeks

I recently discovered that I have the start of a baby bump!?!? *extremelyexcitedsqueal*

My throat started getting itchy and scratchy and sore around Tuesday, the tell-tale signs of an infection starting to set in and I don’t think you’ve ever seen a girl so frantically swish salt water and make neti pots but alas, here I am, full blown tonsillitis, a stuffy nose, an earache and making peace with the crud trying to make a home in my lungs.

I finally caved and picked up some pregnancy-safe antibiotics (Zinnat) and antiseptic rinse (Thymol) from the doctor.

I physically don’t feel good but I will take it any day over emotionally not feeling good and I am so grateful this week, the hormones aren’t going crazy.

Week 10: A Whole Lot of Nothing

When you want a pastry but you're not sure which one baby will agree with so you take a bite of each to gauge his/her reaction. :)

I need sunshine.

I need to get out and freeze in an air-conditioned mall and walk my favorite grocery store picking and smelling and touching produce.

But I’m still in a lot of pain so the times we’ve attempted an excursion to see the outside world has been a miserable fail.

No scans this week and no major updates except nausea.

Lots of nausea.

Holy batman nausea.
