My Baby Story – Part 1

As soon as my husband and I got married we both knew immediately that we wanted a baby and started trying right away.

Within a few months I was pregnant!

The first couple of months were pretty uneventful. I was very excited, but so early in the pregnancy you don’t have a belly and there aren’t many changes yet. Minus the morning sickness. And the mid-day sickness. And the afternoon sickness. And the evening sickness. I had the WORST case of morning sickness. My stomach became instantly sensitive. If I was too hot, I was sick, certain foods made me sick, certain smells made me sick. I felt like I was sick all the time. I heard all the tricks in the book to help calm my stomach, none of which worked, but in the long run I knew it would all be worth it so I stuck with it.

I had a OBGYN that had an extremely busy office and we would have to go and wait 2 hours every time we went in for our ‘scheduled’ appointment.

Let’s just get it over with…

I’ve been thinking long and hard about what a first blog post should be about. Frankly, it’s like a first date. You don’t know me, I don’t know you. We could sit here together and share some excruciatingly boring facts about our lives. Seen any movies recently? Do you have any siblings? Where are you from? I could tell you how HAPPY I am to meet you. I could bring out all my biggest and best moves to impress you.

But I say we skip all of that. No one really likes first dates anyway.

Let’s just get it over with and move on the to the second. Skip the boring and move on to why we are really here.

Nice to meet you 🙂
