Other than a way to add something mildly productive to my day, a blog will also be a super handy way for me to pass information on pregnancy and baby on to my friends - precisely 0% of whom are currently close to being at the "let's make babies!" stage of their respective relationships.
Folks, I am the guinea pig and I would like to share my internet-garnered knowledge and my to-the-minute experiences with my close friends.
Attempt number one at writing such a blog was started during the 2ww. For those who do not speak baby-message-board, that means "the two week wait." Aka, the time in between when you have sex and when a pregnancy test will come out positive. If you know me well, you can understand when I say that the first postings on that one were obsessive, extremely over-detailed (when is it ever okay to let anyone other than your doctor know when you may have conceived?!), and very convoluted.
Attempt number two was doomed from the get-go. I had read that morning sickness started at 6 weeks. So at five weeks I decided it was a GREAT time to start a baby blog combined with a cooking blog! Four days and three posts later morning sickness and nausea struck. I LOVE to cook and bake when I'm not 6 - 18 weeks pregnant. When I'm 6 - 18 weeks pregnant I would MURDER you if you suggested I get in the kitchen. 24-7 nausea and revulsion to the vast majority of food products makes for a less than optimal food blogger. Needless to say this blog attempt #2 died an untimely yet necessary death.
So here we are at attempt-at-a-blog number three. Third time's a charm.
And now here is a picture from last week:
