Knocked Up!

Posted by: Maggie

Well, I’ve accomplished # 25 on my 30 by 30 list! Unfortunately, that means I’ll have to drop a few others off my list, because I probably shouldn’t go wine tasting while pregnant.

We are thrilled! Eleanor is very excited to be a big sister! She already has some names picked out: Greece, Squeaky, and Eurenka. We’ll keep them in mind, but we have a few others we’re thinking of.

This sonogram was at 8 weeks. I’m 9 weeks now, and definitely feeling it. Although, I’m feeling much better than I did with Eleanor. The last time around the morning sickness was terrible, I was throwing up everyday and feeling constantly nauseous. I lost 10 pounds and was hospitalized for dehydration three times. This time around I’m pretty much constantly nauseous, but I’ve only thrown up once and I’m not nearly as miserable. Thank goodness! I don’t know how I would have handled taking care of Eleanor from the bathroom floor.

I am completely exhausted all the time though. I have almost no energy. I’m taking 10am naps, and then lying on the couch while Eleanor watches tv all afternoon. It’s some pretty fantastic parenting. I don’t think she minds so much, except that she keeps asking if I’m going to be sick forever.

I’m planning on doing a weekly photo and pregnancy update for you all. So I’ll have that first update for you later today or tomorrow, depending on my energy level!

    Greece is starting to grow on me. Maybe we can do like a country names theme. Macedonia? Mauritania? Turkey?

  2. Congratulations darling! I like Squeaky as a name too.

    Fantastic news!!! Eleanor is going to be a great big sister. Can’t wait for weekly updates. You’ll get your energy back soon. During my first 14 weeks of pregnancy with Keira, I laid on the couch and put on as many movies as Kaitlyn would stand to watch. I would bribe her with food to watch a movie and be quiet. I’m a good parent, too! Can’t wait to watch your adorable family grow. Congrats.

  4. Yay! Congratulations! And I can definitely imagine Squeaky catching on as a nickname…I do love little baby squeaks!

  5. Congratulations Maggie!!!! That is wonderful news! yay!

    I am so pleased for the three of you. When you are not feeling well just remember you are growing a miracle.

    So happy for you guys! I know this has been a long time coming and you are great parents. Eleanor will be a great big sister. I guess all that “TV watching” is finally paying off, huh?

    How about Geneva or Rio? The list can seriously be endless. So excited for you all. BTW TV is fine as long as it is always Disney!:)

  9. WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO Congrats to you all!!! I can’t wait to meet Eurenka!
