On Whether I Am Eating Enough

MBH thinks my low energy may be caused by not eating enough. I think it is because I am GROWING A NEW PERSON. K: “I ate a ton yesterday. Yogurt for breakfast, hummus & carrots as a snack, a big salad for lunch, and two black bean burritos for dinner. Plus a Twix bar, which…

The Royal Baby

Is a boy! Which kind of now makes me hope we are having a girl… so they can get married someday. 🙂 If Carole Middleton can make it happen, so can I. UPDATE: MBH has pointed out if we have a boy, there’s still a chance that they could get married. Here’s how that went:…

What to Expect, Part Two

Talking about how my skin is more prone to breakouts now… MBH: “Do you think it’s the pregnancy hormones?” K: “I don’t think so. I think it’s the suntan lotion.” MBH: “What did your baby book say?” K: “I don’t know. I only read the chapter for where I’m at now.” MBH: “It’s ‘what to…

Last Night’s Reality

MBH rode his bike over the bridge near our house to meet some friends for a night out, which always makes me nervous because its dark, and drinking is involved, and the bike lane is narrow, and I worry. At some point, I woke up to find him home and standing over me. “I love…

Last Night’s Dream

I don’t dream like normal people. In continued crazy dream news, last night’s was that my taxi was running late for the airport. And so instead, I accepted an offer from an arms dealer, who then flew me across the country with a jet pack. It did not hurt that he looked like Alex Pettyfer,…

What To Expect

Caved and rented “What to Expect when You’re Expecting” from the local library. The most awesome thing about it? The section for future dads. Oh, your wife is crazy/exhausted/in the mood/not in the mood? Deal with it. She’s growing a person.

Baby Books

Wondering if I can get by with reading zero books on pregnancy. How hard can it be? Teens on TV go the whole nine months without ever knowing what’s happening and their babies come out just fine… Right?

An Ode to Ginger Ale

Never in my life did I imagine there would be a drink that I craved more than coffee or wine. But ginger ale has become a complete necessity to life as I know now it. It is a magic elixir, one that settles even the worst of nausea as soon as one sip. When the…

Maybe Baby: Week 9

Today CL figured out that the hospital I chose to deliver this Maybe Baby through, the one that’s entirely across town, just happens to be next to my favorite mexican restaurant, which serves my favorite chips & salsa in the world. Believe me when I say this was not entirely a coincidence. The universe works…

So This is Fun

I am probably less than six weeks along with “Maybe Baby” and already the waistbands of my jeans don’t fit. What I would like this to mean: that I am closer to getting to do a real announcement for (actual) baby! What this probably means: that I probably shouldn’t have been wearing skinny jeans in…
