Why am I not surprised?

I’m sick. 

We made it home from Boston on Tuesday. I didn’t think it was THAT cold, but luckily, I was able to find a coat. I woke up yesterday feeling some kind of crap-tastic. I’m not sure if it’s the change in weather or the germs from the plane, but it sucks. I’ve practically lived on the couch for the last couple days.

I think I’m starting to feel better though. Fingers crossed.

I’ll give a full report on our weekend when I’m feeling better.

Countdown to baby: 90 days…


No Sleep Till….

I got NO sleep last night. And, by no sleep I mean, MAYBE an hour and a half. I didn’t fall asleep until around 5:45 this morning. I know that because I was playing on my phone the whole time.

Today was pretty uneventful.

I packed for Boston for both myself and Devin. Packing for short trips is more difficult for me, I want to pack everything! It’s going to be pretty cold, especially Monday; I don’t have a coat that fits me in this stage of pregnancy. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to find one once we get there.

I polished off the rest of the sugar cookies. Gross, I know.

I made a menu and grocery list for when we get back on Tuesday. It may sound strange, but I love meal planning. Our biggest problem is eating out pretty frequently, when eating at home would be the healthiest thing for us. I’ve been really lazy lately with the cooking, so when we get back from Boston we’re getting back on the wagon. I’m also promising (myself, AGAIN) to start exercising.

If you’re interested here is what we’re going to be eating when we get back. I’ve included links to the websites that I find these delicious recipes on (I’m not particularly creative myself). We always have leftovers for lunch the next day, it makes life so much simpler.

We just dropped the puppies off at the puppy hotel. I didn’t expect to be so sad about it. I’m sitting here now, wondering if they miss us, if they’re crying. 😦

I’m off to try to get some sleep. Our day starts at 3:45 a.m. tomorrow. It’s going to be a long one.

Countdown to baby: 96 days…


I shouldn’t be allowed to bake. 

I made sugar cookies today and have eaten about 8 of them so far. The same thing happened about a month ago when I made peanut butter cookies. I can’t stop eating them! Gah.

I don’t take my gestational diabetes test until the 31st, so maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something; eat the sugar while you can!! In all seriousness, sugar is all I’ve been craving for the last three weeks or so. It makes me feel gross, but it’s all I want!

Other than cookies, all I did today was laundry in preparation for Boston. 

Life is pretty boring right now.

Countdown to baby: 97 days


I’ve kind of been a slacker. The baby must be having a growth spurt because I am really tired this week. It started on Sunday, napping most of the day (it didn’t help that the weather was crap). Yesterday, I fell asleep about an hour after waking up and slept an additional 4 hours. 

26 weeks today. Only 14 to go. Seems like it’s taking forever and going too quickly at the same time.

On Saturday we were supposed to attend a Cloth Diapering class, but didn’t make it on time and I refuse to show up late (I think it’s rude and disrespectful). So, we are just going to wing it. 

We started our stash with a Bummis Organic Cotton Diaper Kit. I’m still hesitant about this kit because I wanted to get a variety of brands and styles, but Devin got sold on it so we’ll keep it. Cloth Diapering is my new obsession. It’s bordering on unhealthy, it occupies most of my day; researching various brands and styles of diapers to try to decide what else I want to add to my stash.

There is SO much information available it is OVERWHELMING and exciting at the same time. Google is my BFF and worst enemy right now. 

We have a last minute trip to Boston this weekend. Devin has to go for a work thing on Monday and I’m going to visit with my family that lives in Connecticut. We leave on Saturday and won’t get back until Tuesday afternoon. 

I don’t have a maternity jacket. I’m going to freeze.

Countdown to baby: 98 days…(holy shit balls that seems soon)
