life lately

Sigh. I really did mean it when I said I was going to post more. I'll get back into it-- I promise! Since it's been awhile since I've done a substantive post, I figured I'd do a "life lately" sort of post in bullet form. Baby steps, people :)

  • The veganism thing has sort of died for the time being. I'm not even that sorry, because I have a good reason. It's because...
  • I'm pregnant! FINALLY! Today marks 9 weeks-- I have my first ultrasound on Thursday and I'm so excited about it.
  • Pregnancy is not being kind to me. I have all the sick. Which is why I'm eating whatever I can eat right now (which is hardly anything). No shame.
  • I've also been missing a lot of work... oops?
  • C has been an absolute gem through all of this. Seriously, he wins like Husband of the Year or something. I feel bad for him a lot (which leads to a lot of crazy-pregnant-lady tears).
  • We had to cancel our trip to Mexico. Yes, we were supposed to be in Mexico while it was like negative eleventy billion degrees here. That would have been lovely. You know, except for the fact that I would have had to stay in the hotel room the entire time puking.
  • Things I've learned thus far:
    • The reason you salivate so much right before you vomit is to protect your teeth from the stomach acid.
    • Apparently this little parasite isn't officially a fetus until 9 weeks. I have a fetus now! Also, C does NOT like it when I call the baby a parasite. (the truth hurts)
    • It is possible to have severe morning sickness without having HG. For some reason I was living in this fantasy world where it was like a binary propostition-- either not-that-bad or total-HG. Not so.
    • Related: anti-emetics are no magic bullet.
We're SO excited that Baby B is finally on his/her way, and I, for one, will be even more excited when the first trimester is over! Hopefully the puking will stop at that point!!! Lots more updates to come-- this little guy (or girl) is going to change a lot of things around here.


  1. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I am so excited it's blog-official! Can't wait for #partyinthemidwest in a few weeks. Love you!

  3. Ahhh CONGRATULATIONS, Marcie!!! So, so happy for you guys! Not so much for the puking, but you know ;)

  4. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!!!! Marcie. So happy for you!! Screw veganism. haha jk. So sorry you have been sick but seriously yay and congrats and I am so unbelievably happy for you. now we really need to go to ikea ;)

  5. CONGRATSSSSSS!!!! in most cases, puking stops at 2nd trimester aka the magical semester. you feel like ass 1st and half of 3rd so god grants us 3 whole months of bliss during the 2nd tri. you sleep like a champ, feel like a champ and look like a champ (that pregnancy glow kicks in). then it all turns to shit when you go into labor and shoot a human out of a hole not meant to be stretched that big LOL

    in all seriousness congrats !!!!
