May 2012

I’ve been trying to take advantage of the extra day off to finish up some lingering things around the apartment that need to be done before we go on vacation in June. Last night I *finally* finished the snowflake afghan I’ve been working on in fits and spurts for almost a year now. It’s going […]

10 weeks

by Chelsea Myers on May 25, 2012

1/4 of the way through this thing!  Here’s hoping that I’m actually going to be able to enjoy (most of) the remaining 3/4. 10 weeks looks the same as 9 and 8 weeks except a little more blurry.  I’m up 1lb from last week (2lbs total) due to an abundance of ice cream-related social events, […]


I promise

by Chelsea Myers on May 21, 2012

Let me tell you, I have read a lot of blogs dealing with pregnancy.  A lot.  And I know how obnoxious they can be.  Therefore as my loyal blog readers, I hereby promise that I will try not to commit any of the most egregious sins I’ve seen. I promise never to show a picture of […]


9 weeks

by Chelsea Myers on May 21, 2012

Nice farmer’s tan, eh?  Guess I could have used a little more sunblock when we went to the track meet last weekend.  Things are and feel pretty much the same as last week, which makes sense because the baby has only moved up in fruit sizes from raspberry to green olive/grape. I’ve been feeling less […]


8 weeks

The official 8 weeks picture (taken on Saturday, May 12): Weight: 131 lbs. I probably look totally normal to everyone else, but I feel really thick through the middle.  Part of that in this picture is that I’d just gotten back from running and guzzled a lot of water and eaten breakfast right before it […]


But in case I do, here’s a snapshot of life at 8 weeks pregnant. I’m sitting at work at 3pm on Friday with no deadlines looming over me.  My head hurts.  My stomach hurts.  I’m counting the seconds until I can take more anti-nausea medication (FYI, it’s 7200).  I want to go home and lay […]


Cuatro de Mayo

by Chelsea Myers on May 4, 2012

So it’s been awhile since  I wrote an actual blog post.  The turtle thinks that’s unacceptable. Harumph. We actually have been doing a few fun/different things, but I’ve been lazy about taking photos and no photos = lame (-er than usual) blog posts. Last weekend our church had it’s yearly PR event called Love Madison […]
