Start at the beginning

I had a first post written. It was witty, intelligent, and thoughtful. And then somehow the iPad deleted it. The iPad is not witty, intelligent, or thoughtful. But the bottom line... You guessed it, is we're pregnant! We've made it to the 14 week mark and I'm even starting to bulge a little.

Yes, we'll find out the gender.
Yes, we are getting excited (slowly... Day by day...)
No, I haven't felt too terrible.
Yes, I told work already and they took it well!
No, we haven't decided on cloth diapers vs disposable, but I am very pleased that so many of you have asked me because it means you see me as the green person I want to be!

What other questions have you all been asking? ;-)

I don't envision myself becoming a hard-core blogging momma. Every time I start a journal for myself for a blog for the world, it tends to last a few months and then fizzle out. But I am, for some reason, trying hard not to become 'that mom' who only talks about her pregnancy or child on Facebook. Thus, I thought that for now, while my head is swimming with pregnancy related thoughts, a blog might be a good place to track them. That way those of who who care can read it and those of you who don't can skip right by without being too irritated or annoyed with me.


  1. Congratulations, Amanda!! I am so happy for you two! We cloth diaper and love it! Let me know if you ever want to talk about it.

  2. Thanks, Debbie! I'd actually love to hear your advice! Email me, okay?
