Baby News

Our baby has recently grown from a lime:

To a peach:

We could not be prouder of our little fruit:)

Here are some thoughts on Morning Sickness:

Okay, 1. I knew people get sick and I even knew morning sickness could be anytime of the day, not just in the morning, but I had NO idea it was so overwhelmingly life-altering!  Oh my gosh.  I have so much more respect for the billions of women that have done this before me.

2.  I got Zofran.  I LOVE Zofran.  (I highly recommend it to others going through MS.  I can eat at least twice what I was eating pre-Zofran.)

3.  It's slowly getting better, but I can't wait until I can cook and bake and enjoy my favorites again!

4.  I propose the following for my future first trimesters:  Catheters and Feeding tubes.

 With the catheter, I would get a LOT more sleep!!  With the feeding tube, the constant flow of calories would keep the nausea in check, and I would not have to try and figure out all day what sounds edible and how to obtain it.  Brilliant, right?  ;)


  1. Yuck to the catheters and feeding tubes. Just be sure to consume lots of oatmeal, prunes and the like with with Zofran.

  2. I lived on Zofran for my entire first pregnancy - the ENTIRE pregnancy, as in I ate more zofran than actual food - but the liquid IV form is best. (Hopefully you haven't had to have it in an iv)

    Pregnancy is one of those things that you never really "get" until you get it. But for some reason, most of us get excited when we get it again. It's very strange.

  3. I love your little peach! I'm so sorry to hear you've been feeling so sick, though. You're going to be one amazing momma!

  4. Oh my gosh CONGRATULATIONS!! You are going to be such a cute mommy :) Love your comments about the cath and the feeding tube...I feel a little CFC in those comments and it warms my heart :)

  5. Tessa!! I'm so happy that you found my blog. Congratulations on being pregnant. That is so exciting! I hope that you are all doing well!

  6. Oh Tessa, I just love you! Congrats on your peach.... And best wishes beyond all best wishes that you feel all better soon!!! I think the catheter and feeding tube are brilliant.

  7. Tessa maybe you should market this. btw you're hilarious.
