Pregnancy (2nd) 1st trimester

Early days of my 2nd pregnancy (2012-2013).
  • May 12:  I took a pregnancy test and discovered that I am about 2-3 weeks pregnant
  • May 17:  Called to make my first appointment (June 11) to see the doc and have an ultra sound.
  • May 20:  I have 8.5 days left of school and the nausiousness is starting to come in.
  • June 11:  Ezra and Dustin went to the doctor's visit, both got to see the heartbeat.  Ezra thought seeing the heartbeat was so cool, however if you ask him if mommy's having a baby he has no idea.  It really doesn't click with a 2 year old that his mommy's having a baby.
  • June 24:  Left for our trip to Florida knowing full well that once again I would not be able to partake in eating any seafood (where it's best to get).  Bummer yet again!  Maybe someday I'll make it to Florida or down south and not be pregnant, so I can eat some tasty lobster, shrimp, and scallops.
  • July 1:  Definitely feeling the pregnancy brain set in.  I have memory loss constantly.  And we have to search for a new childcare provider as our present one can not take the new Baby Boring.
  • July 9:  Baby Boring's heart rate is 158 beats per minute.
  • August 6:   Baby Boring is doing good and so is mommy.  Only about 16 weeks, but feeling a lot better and less gaggy at night.  My appetite is back up again and I'm eating a ton.
  • August 15:   Ezra is on his 3rd day of potty training and I'm gearing up to head back to school.  Lots of work to get done, good thing I'm in my second trimester otherwise I would be exhausted doing all this right now.

Recipes made from Pinterest

     Ezra helped me make Puppy Chow/Muddy Buddies today and enjoyed eating too!
  I've been making a lot of things from my Pinterest pins (now that I have time to make them).  And my big helper, Ezra, has been extra helpful in making and especially eating what I make!

Recent obsession

My recent obsession is Pinterest.
I have found many good recipes and great projects to do for my family. One of them being Dustin, my husband's, Valentine present. I'm excited to give it to him in a week. I've been waiting to give it to him since the beginning of January and have counted down the days. I will post pictures when I am able to share it with him first before the rest of world sees it too!
Speaking of which, anyone reading this should know there is 6 days and 1.75 hours 'til Valentine's day! Did you get your sweetheart anything special this year?

True Confessions

So I have a few things I will admit that I do as a Boring Mom.
  1. Sometimes I go to the bathroom just to escape.
  2. I actually enjoy drinking beverages that were once cold/hot like flat pop, warm water, and luke warm/cold hot chocolate or chai tea.
  3. I enjoy staying in my bathrobe as long as possible.
  4. I don't make fancy meals (who has the time, other than my husband).
  5. As an adult and mom, it's so hard to decide what I want for my birthday and Christmas because I would rather have things we need for our house or for our son.
  6. I am a Survivor fan and my son likes to watch it with me.
  7. I have been buying new baby stuff for the second baby we will have someday. Mainly stuff that is much better quality, that if we would have done the research prior to Ezra, we would have registered for in the first place.
