What's a happenin'

I am almost thirteen weeks - thank heavens!!  I have had enough of the nausea and mind numbing fatigue.  I think I am on the upslope now.

In the meantime, Mike is recovering from back surgery  - he is doing really well.  We are going to post some pictures of the events that lead up to the surgery.  Let's just say that for a while he lived like a slug - he didn't leave the ground very often.  Now however, he can walk and sit and eat at the dinner table with us.  Which is a big step forward.  When Mike went to the ortho surgeon the doc told him that he had one big a** extrusion.  Basically his option was to live in constant pain or get the surgery.  There was no contest.  Now Mike can't lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk and I think he is relishing this - it means he doesn't have to take out the garbage (a point of contention in our marriage).  I am not enjoying this new chore AT ALL because of my newly acquired sense of smell.

Oh well, I will live with it for now.  As long as he can lift the baby when it comes - that's what really matters. The garbage chore will be returned to him soon enough.


  1. YOU'RE EXPECTING!!! I am so happy for you--we are a week apart! Congratulations!

  2. Beautiful pictures, and what wonderful baby news!!! I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Ha, I love it. Mike and I constantly bicker about the garbage too.
    I love the family pictures, they are great!
