Baby A - Week 8

This week, Ben and I had the pleasure of hearing Baby A's heartbeat. I think up to that point, I really didn't think I was pregnant for real. But the moment we heard the heartbeat....Ben and I both realized: this is for real. We are going to be parents.

Food Cravings have gotten interesting, lately. Someone asked me if I was "craving Chinese food at 3am?" Well, nooooo.....but that doesn't mean I'm NOT craving weird foods.

Doughnuts - I hate them. But 2 weeks ago, I ate an entire box. It was sickening. Plus, I still hate them.
Salads and French Fries - Love this combo. In fact, I need them NOW.
Nachos - Yummy.
Spaghetti at 10pm - Why not?
Broccoli with pizza - That make the pizza healthy, right?
Blue icing in Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Milo and Miko: Our little dogs don't have a clue what is going on. Although, I have noticed Milo is getting a bit more clingy than usual. They are noticing that I have pushed them off the bed in the middle of the night, flipped out (also in the middle of the night) when they touch me or brush my stomach. The poor dogs.

In other news: My clothes are getting tighter. My nausea has left. I'm forgetting things. I had my first baby dream. My body aches. My energy is gone. My desire to sleep has increased dramatically. My lack of sleep has been over-powering. (And, I'm already begging for a body pillow.) I wake up at 2-3am from vivid weird (sometimes terrifying) dreams.

And, to top it off - I will be 6 months pregnant in my sister's wedding. If you thought measuring for a bridesmaid dress was terrifying enough...imagine measuring for one NOW for when you are 6 months. OMG.

All in all, I'm beginning to fall in love with this little squirmy child in my tummy. November needs to hurry up and get here.


  1. This is too sweet. Praying for you!

  2. You know, mellow mushroom makes pizza with broccoli and I've definitely heard of fries on your salad as a real dish! Can't wait to see you soon! :)

  3. Grrr...second attempt at comment! This post really takes me back to my early days of pregnancy! I love it! I had to buy maternity clothes at three months. It was exciting and scary. I was big as a barn. I'm not joking. People kept asking if I was having twins. Also, my cat knew something was up and would just lay his head on my stomach and stare at me. Of course, he was truly freaked out when Nathaniel was beig enough to kick and the cat could feel it. Good luck with the dogs! Go ahead and buy the body pillow! I wish I would have done it earlier rather than later! Praying you get your energy back soon and that you don't have terrifying dreams. I remember those as well. I'm so exited for you!


I (heart) comments! Thank you for making my day!
