Natural bean.

March 27, 2011

I’m now at a more comfortable place in this pregnancy. I’m starting to show, which in terms that I’m more familiar with- starting to get fat. Urghhh. Beautiful I am not. At least not yet.

Finding out that I was pregnant was just one of those things. Flossing made me gag and drinking water tasted “funny”. Put two and two together and you have… a pregnancy?! Impossible! After all the needles, the doctors, the tears? After the months of looking toward adoption, the fighting, the strain on our marriage? After over three years, praying and trying anything that anyone would recommend? A trip to Mexico (a lovely place, really) and some tequila, ok… lot’s of tequila was all that happened.

We got pregnant.

This bean wasn’t made for us, but rather by us, a concept that had been long-abandoned.



Travelling bean.

March 5, 2011

My husband and I planned a trip over to Ireland and the UK this past week. We saw it as, perhaps, a¬†final chance to really travel without a child. It has been the best trip of our relationship so far. We tried new pubs, saw professional rugby matches and spent quality time with people who are important in our lives. It really put everything in perspective. Time flies, we are already in our mid thirties and spent the past few years wishing and hoping for a baby, we forgot to stop and smell the flowers, taste the beer and see the rugby. The good news is that there’s still time for that. Well … about 7 more months to be exact.

I’m so thankful for this incredible trip together, just the two of us- and our little bean.
