About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Pregnancy can do this to you

  • 7: The number of bathroom breaks I've had today and it's not even 11am yet. The cruel irony? I am CRAVING cold ice water. I am talking from the depths of the deepest well on Earth.
  • The unsuspecting Meijer employee dared to remark that it "must be spring because people are wearing their flip flops." I immediately shot back, "Well, these are the only shoes I fit in right now." Ugh. I bet he's sorry he asked.
  • I looked back at my 15 week pregnancy photo and thought, "damn I look skinny!"
  • 4: The number of black stretchy yoga pants I own. They are in constant rotation at work and on the weekends.
  • You overtest baby toys and gear to make sure your own baby won't hurt themselves. Do babies have the same strength as a 25 year-old woman or a 27 year-old man? I don't think so. But it puts my mind at ease.
  • You are envious at all women in high heels. All women.
  • You start noticing people's ankles and staring...wishing....
  • You start to wonder if your internal organs will ever be the same again.

I'm not pregnant and stare and wish for other people's ankles. haha. I will bring you the biggest bottle of ice cold water I can find next time we get together and I won't utter a word about bathroom breaks. :)

I totally understand. I have a feeling this will be my last week in heels, it depresses me :( But just think, you are almost there, almost ready to meet little Sophie! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

I hear ya on the water...sometimes I feel like I can't drink enough. And then the peeing...it's a cruel joke
