Getting along...

I wish I felt more up to documenting day by day how I’m feeling.I just haven’t had the energy.I’ve been a bit better lately than I was – throwing up on average just once or twice a day now instead of upwards of 5 or 6 times.Hey, whatever progress I can make!I have moments through the day now where I don’t feel even a hint of nausea, although for the most part I’m still in a stage where I’d say 90-95% of the time I feel at least a hint of nausea.Often fairly strong.Luckily the first trimester will be over soon and I should gain a bit more energy and feel healthier.I’m soooo looking forward to that time!!!!!I’m starting to show already.I have a definite baby bump happening.When my parents were over a few days ago, they took me out to a maternity store and I got a whole bunch of tops and 3 pairs of capris.I’m so excited about my new wardrobe!I feel so good in my pregnancy clothes, which might sound strange but it’s true.They’re so comfortable, I almost wonder why women don’t wear materni…

I could go for a big piece of cake right now...I'd probably throw it up, but it'd be worth it =P

Morning sickness and feeling like I’ve run a marathon just walking from the bedroom to the bathroom has left me feeling somewhat bored with my life at the moment.But I know that soon enough I’ll dream of being able to laze around feeling ‘bored’ so I might as well suck it up!If I could get past the ill feelings I get when I eat (and when I don’t) (despite being on a morning sickness pill that’s supposed to help with that!) I would definitely be on top of the world…I’ll get there, I just wish it would be sooner rather than later.As in, right now would be lovely – please and thank you!For all of you out there ‘dreaming’ of being pregnant – make sure you want to be in this position more than anything else in the world before you go ahead and do it because OH MY GOD it sucks the life right out of you and takes up every ounce of energy you have and then some.I thought we were ‘ready’ for this but no one could have ever prepared me for what I’m going through!Luckily I am ecstatic to see the…

Ok, ok, enough with the secrecy already!

I’m tired of remaining silent about the biggest thing ever to happen to me in my life.I’m pregnant!But I’m still in the early days, which is why I was choosing to remain silent…I was hoping to make it to the 3 month mark before saying anything but I couldn’t take it anymore!I am at 9 weeks and 2 days, so just into the 10th week.According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting, our little one is the size of a small prune!Awww!We are ecstatic.We got pregnant on our very first try, so it really feels like it was ‘meant to be.’And we really couldn’t be happier about it!Our due date, I found out today, is December 15th.So it looks like we’re going to be getting the best (early) Christmas present ever!I’ve been doing well but I’ve been VERY sick.Started a few weeks back, feels like forever already.It’s very debilitating.I am so sick and so so very tired.I eat, I throw up, I sleep.That’s pretty much my life lately!If anything, it has got progressively worse over the past few weeks.I found o…

Adventures with T&K

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long not only to post in general, but to post about HANGING OUT WITH TRISTA AND KYLE during their Vancouver adventures! I was feeling sick and then last week came down with a terrible cold and I’m just getting over it now, so that’s my excuse…Otherwise I would have written ages ago…I swear…So yeah…I met Trista and Kyle while James was still in Nanaimo and we went for nachos and dessert at the Seawall restaurant.It was fun meeting up and seeing each other ‘in the flesh.’It felt like we were just getting together again as old friends, it didn’t feel awkward as a first meeting at all.It pays to know people online first and then hang out!It was funny, realizing all the little things we already knew about each other.I’d start saying something or Trista would and the other would say, ‘Oh yes, I already know this from your blog!’Haha.One memorable moment from the restaurant: When a piece of the dessert pastry went flying and made a true phyllo sound (whate…

Trista and Kyle are here!

It seems almost surreal, meeting people from 'blogland.' I've met a few people from the internet before but never bloggers! It's so funny because it's like we know so many little random things about each other already, even though we only just 'met' for the first time!

I was a bit under the weather today BUT pulled myself together in time to go out for nachos and dessert at this seawall restaurant/lounge place that I really like. I hope they enjoyed it too, they seemed to! I'm really glad we were able to get together, I felt like we got along right off the bat. I probably sound really sappy but it was refreshing getting together with people that seem to really 'get' me. I'm usually quite private and quiet but because so many of my thoughts are plastered on my blog, I'm a bit more of an open book to those who read about me! Well maybe not an open book but as close as I could get!

This is just a quick post, but more to come...we'r…
