"I Love Lucy" Clip Followup

Well, hopefully the last post explained my abysmal posting schedule these last few weeks but I have a feeling you guys want to know a bit more :-)

I'm currently in my 11th week which means the due date is late May. It also means I am sooo close to being done with my third month and hopefully all the yuckiness that comes with it.

And there is lots of yuckiness. I was expecting some fatigue, a little nausea, minor aches and pains - ha! I'm so sick. Sick as a dog, if your dog has thrown up ~1/3 of what she has eaten over the last month. You should all be very grateful that we didn't announce the pregnancy earlier because all most posts would have read "Make the vomiting stop! I hate being pregnant! The End." which is really not what I want to say because if I have learned anything this past year, it is that life is special and I am so grateful to be pregnant and if my body can only deal with the hormones it needs now by being so sick, I'll take it. I'd like to say I'll take it without complaining but Craig knows that would be a lie. But I will try to refrain from complaining on the blog as much as possible.

Poor Craig. He's been such a great husband. I could pretty much write nothing but posts about how great he has been and still not say enough. He's taken over all shopping, cooking, laundry, cleaning and cat duties - pretty much everything. At least we are both more fatigued than normal :-)

That's about the extend of the news I have right now but I'm sure more will be coming soon. I don't want to blog to became "all about the baby!" but it is about my life (well my part at least, Craig's part is about inappropriate Halloween costumes and legalizing pot) so it might be slightly baby-centric these next few months years. If it ever gets to be too much for you, feel free to skip those posts. At least I know the grandparents will read them.

But since we will be referring to our little babe so much, we think we need a better way to reference him. So we will be stealing Tina's idea of using a fetus name and have decided to go with Nigel! (For the record, we don't know if it is a boy or a girl and even if it does turn out to be a boy, we won't actual name him Nigel, we just don't want to spend the next 6.5 months talking about/to baby it or he/she).

So look for upcoming news about baby Nigel coming to a blog near you!


  1. I want the blog to be all Nigel all the time!

    Are you going to find out the sex? All I ask is that you don't find out but not tell anyone. That's just hateful.

  2. We will not be finding out the sex. And you don't have to worry about me finding out and not telling anyone, I am awful at keeping secrets so there is no way I could pull that off.

    I've basically been avoiding talking to close friends if at all possible these last 6 weeks in order to protect my "I'm pregnant" secret. I feel so much better now that it is out in the open.

  3. I agree, you should blog freely about baby Nigel, because we're so happy for you guys and want to know how you're doing! Is Craig graduating in May? That's going to be a big month for ya'll! :)

    I'm so excited to be an aunty!!! Yay!! P.S. Make sure you don't clean the kitty litter while your pregnant!! Just a little FYI...

  5. Steph - And your Nigel's only one!

    Don't worry about the litter, I was very glad to give that chore over to Craig.

  6. How exciting! I am just 2 weeks ahead of you. Many many blessings to you and nigel and dad.
