Feeling Better and Telling People

December 31st, 2008

So the past 2 days I have been feeling better.  After a pep talk from personal trainer, Andy, I am also eating much better.  It must be the magic fix, eating healthy food that is.  So yesterday I ate about every 1.5 hours and I made sure to have fruits and veggies with protein.  I [...]

More Morning Sickness

December 29th, 2008

Well tomorrow is the first day of week 7!  Yeah!  That means I could only have at the best 5 more weeks of this nauseous feeling.  Everyday I get up and feel pretty sick.  I then get a spurt of energy and try to get stuff done.  Today I cleaned 2 bathrooms and the kitchen [...]

The Word is Out

December 25th, 2008

The word is out to our families.  Lots of excitement and well-wishing.  Now we can start telling some of our friends.  We’ll start with our closest friends and eventually start telling other people.  Like Sarah said, we’re not real secretive about stuff.  Well, she’s not.  I at least know how to keep a secret. I [...]

Today’s the day!

December 24th, 2008

Today we’re going to start telling our family about Sarah.  This evening we’re going to tell her parents and brother.  Tomorrow we’re going to tell my family. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope that everybody has positive reactions and there’s no negativity.  I think that everybody will be excited, but I worry that [...]

The Master List

December 21st, 2008

Sarah’s really been working on coming up with names for Baby Stemen.  She’s been keeping a “master list” of the names that we both agree are possibilities.  Unfortunately, she treats the list like it’s a crucial document that’s necessary for the kid’s survival. Also of unfortune is that she’ll ask me about names that I [...]

Happy Birthday Aaron!

December 21st, 2008

Today is Aaron’s birthday.  We just finished eating birthday waffles. He is holding his cat now and pretending it is a baby.  Nothing unusual today except for the Aaron’s morning sickness.  Oh wait, that was due to having fun until 2 am with his friends last night.  I didn’t have morning sickness.  Thank goodness.  I [...]

I just need to be held

December 18th, 2008

Mood swings.  Yes, they exist.  Today I just want to curl up and relax.  Oh wait that is what I have wanted to do all week.  The fatigue is intense and I have to go to the bathroom about 100 times a day.  Fortunately I have new pajamas and sweats for my extra time relaxing.  [...]

So this is it!

December 15th, 2008

So, Aaron and I tried to have a baby last month and it worked!  Here is the story about how I found out.  Probably not as funny as Aaron’s but even so, it was a good time.  So I was in Chicago for a Search Engine Marketing Conference.  Thanks to my personal trainer, Andy, I [...]

On Sunday, December 7, Sarah went to Chicago for some boring conference related to things that she does of which I know and understand very little.  She called me the following Tuesday while I was at work.  She usually only calls me in the evenings, unless she’s bored. For that reason, I was a little [...]
