Nursery, Phase 2: Furniture!

Baby G’s nursery is almost ready for him. Last time I updated, it was freshly painted. Over the past month, we’ve added in a crib, glider, and dresser. All we need now is to decorate a little bit more and add bedding, even though of course, he won’t be using any blankets or bedding for […]

3 Years Down

Jay and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary last Tuesday, April 29. Since Jay was working until 8 p.m. that night and it wasn’t like we could just go out and get a drink after he got off work to celebrate, we decided to do something the weekend before it. Jay surprised me by booking […]

Happy Easter to all my friends out there who celebrated it today. I hope it was a great day for you. Jay and I had a very low key Easter here in Raleigh and as much as I missed seeing family today, it was a really great day. The past two Easters have been a bit […]

Back during my 20 week appointment, the ultrasound tech discovered that I had a marginal placenta previa, which basically […]

29 Weeks!

[Note: I wrote this blog entry on March 29 & 30 when I was 29 weeks, but I suck lately at timely blogging and didn’t go back to put the pictures in to finish the post until this morning (April 2). Everything still describes 29 weeks, even though I’m now technically closer to 30 weeks. […]

21 Weeks!

Well, we made it to 21 weeks.  I remember back in October, after the ultrasound dated the pregnancy, when I counted out the weeks and put them in my calendar.  20 weeks seemed so far away, and now we’ve surpassed that milestone.  Jay and I went to Baby G’s 20 week check-up last Thursday morning […]

Baby G is a…

…BOY!!!! We’re very excited that we’re going to have a son!  I had a feeling it was a boy from the very first day I found out I was pregnant.  And although this wasn’t an actual doctor’s appointment (it’s an elective ultrasound clinic, so there were only technicians), the woman who conducted our session said […]
