"Your blog is a self-fulfilling prophecy." -Ginny Buckner

YEAH, I KNOW, but I was a lot more ready to have a baby BEFORE I got pregnant, OK?

So, happy Monday,'s the first day of my second trimester (allegedly), and I started it off with a--what's a good onomatopoeic indicator for vomit?--well, that's what it was, anyway. Which is NOT FAIR. This is supposed to end in week 13! And I fully, naively, expected to wake up this morning with no nausea, feeling good, if a little tired since I don't like mornings even when I'm not knocked up, and it didn't happen. What a drag.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who are now following this thing for doing so, since it means I'm actually semi-motivated to update and much more conscientious about my whining. I'm going to try my best to be productively critical of the pregnancy process, such as asking why it's at all fair that women go through all this and guys are done when the fun part's over (and, yes, Brandon is doing a bang-up job of putting up with me through this process, but it's not a requirement for the entire male species to do so).

In closing: my baby looks like this right now.

It's about the size of a Nutter Butter.


  1. Maybe you will start feeling better in the next few days. Have you had any more ultrasounds?

  2. Not yet. March is my next one and I find out what it is! Then I can start using gender specific pronouns :)
