Baby on the Run: Week 23

Baby on the Run, Week 21! That rhymes! How exciting! It was during Week 21 that I decided I popped. I also decided this during Week 20. And Week 18. And definitely Week 16. And I was positive I had popped — […]

When I woke up last Tuesday and my apps told me I was 20 weeks and therefore, theoretically, halfway through this pregnancy, I felt a little sad! I’m sure that will change in the late weeks when I’m truck-sized and […]

Baby on the Run: Weeks 15 & 16

Week 14 was exciting! (For me. I realize none of this is probably very exciting for anyone else. Maybe a little for Brian. And my mom. Hi, Mom!) Highlights from Week 14 included another visit with our midwife (and seeing […]
