Some of what I'm posting now is from past weeks, but obviously couldn't post them before we broke the news. So enjoy my fun experiences from my early weeks of pregnancy.

Fun at the grocery store with morning sickness

I've never really had a good sense of smell. What with the allergies, and the breathing problems, I just don't smell things that well.

Apparently all that's changed with the onset of these hormones. I can smell EVERYTHING. I can smell coffee that's being brewed downstairs, even with our bedroom door shut. I can even tell which roast it is.

So I went to the grocery store early this morning on the way to work to pick up a few things. Remember now this is a novelty for me... I smelled the mildew on the mop they were wiping the aisles with, I smelled the yeast from the bakery, I smelled the coffee being ground three rows over, I smelled the spilt milk on the floor near the dairy case. I could smell the fish from the other side of the store. And it was all incredibly nauseating. I thought I would be sick every time I walked another 10 feet.

I think I liked it better when I couldn't smell.

And you may ask yourself, my God, what have I done?

In case it wasn't PAINFULLY obvious from my picture series...Andy and I are expecting our first little one. Sometime in the February timeframe. They say February first, we'll see how close they get. Care to start the wagers?

We're both very excited, in fact I think I'd be very hard pressed to figure out which one of us is more excited. Or to be truthful which one of us is more scared. A whole new world of fun and excitement is about to open up for us, and hopefully by the time February gets here we'll be a little closer to ready for it.

More to come on my fun experiences with pregnancy. Sorry for you folks that just aren't interested in it. I had sort of thought I wouldn't go into a lot of detail on this sort of thing, but I've thought that about a LOT of things; and this is where I've always written on what I've been experiencing in life. This definitely qualifies as a BIG brand new experience for me, so here goes.

There's an alarm that's running low on batteries here at work. So every 5 minutes a chirp goes off. It sounds like a bird call.

I want to ring that bird's neck. Or find some batteries.
