steam of consciousness!

So today I'm 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I'll be doing a pregnancy update tomorrow, because tomorrow morning is my first appointment! I'm excited, scared, anxious, nervous, and really really looking forward to meeting my midwife. I've always dreamed of having a midwife, so it's like a dream come true!

Last night, I did not sleep well at all. I always toss & turn all night long and sleep very lightly. But last night was unusually worse. I woke up this morning & felt pretty bad. And then I had my first experience with morning sickness! Which is fine - it's pain with a purpose!

We laid around the entire day today. We watched a movie, watched tv, talked, and enjoyed the day.

I have exciting news: We're getting an UPPAbaby stroller! Can you even believe it? I found one on CraigsList (every mommy's DREAM!) for less than 1/3 of the retail price. Unbelievable!

I'm pretty sure we're going to pick it up on Wednesday. Exciting! If you've never used CraigsList, I highly recommend you check it out. There are tons of baby products on sale. And let me tell you -- a lot of parents never even open some things out of the box. And then they sell them extremely cheap. It's great! I plan on getting a lot of our things from CraigsList. It's just smart to save money.

Hopefully our appointment tomorrow goes well. I can't wait to tell you all about it!


  1. "Pain with a purpose." Love that!

    And yay for your stroller! Craigslist only really works when you live somewhere like you do. Seriously. Type in "gDiapers" or some other great baby product (like that stroller) and search in EVERY region that pops up for KY. There's nothing. NOTHING. But I'm glad you're in a good location and found that stroller for such a steal! Can't wait to see pictures of it! :D

    And I TOTALLY can't wait for your update tomorrow, yippee for your appointment!

  2. um, brittney, for some reason, your comment isn't showing up. i *know* i accepted it.. i don't know what is going on! UGH!! :(

    anyway, to reply to you.. i totally agree!! a lot of times, i'll search the craigstlist around home, and there is never anything. it's ridiculous!! people in KY just do not use products like this. WHY?! i do not understand!! ugh :( i wish you lived over here.. there's tons of stuff! but i've yet to see any gdiapers! i look all the time!!!

  3. um, ok, now it showed up. blogger is being really weird. oops! :)

  4. I'm so excited to hear about your appointment tomorrow!! Is Mark able to go with you?
    Great post by the way! :)

  5. Hehe, that happened to one of your comments on our blog the other day. I was like, "I KNOW I APPROVED IT!" And it didn't show up until the next day. How annoying.

    And who knows, maybe we *will* be living there in a few months! ;) :D
