The Past Tense of “Tweet” Is?

Sometimes a joke is just too easy.

Five Weeks

My little baby is 5 weeks old today. I can’t wait to start “feeling” pregnant. Not too much has changed. I’m still extremely tired, and I’m still constipated thanks to the lovely progesterone shots. I’ve also been getting dizzy the last couple of days, which my IVF coordinator says also is from the progesterone.

Last night, I had my first major food aversion/nausea. We went to our Kiwanis club meeting to announce our pregnancy. Everyone brings dinner to the meeting, and one woman brought spaghetti for her and her daughters. The meat sauce totally made my stomach lurch, and that and the smell of soap kept me nauseous throughout the night.

I’m actually kind of looking forward to having morning sickness. It will let me know my baby’s still alive and growing in there. I don’t know if last night counts as that or if it was just random nausea from food smells. I’m just counting down the days to our first u/s so I can see my baby’s heart beating.

A Budding ’24’ Fan

I told Joe that the baby is taking a break from growing to watch “24” tonight. He said, “The following non-growing takes place between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. Non-growing occurs in real time.” Haha. I really hope our baby appreciates our sense of humor!

The Birthday Celebration, Parts 2 and 3

My BFP was the highlight of my birthday, but the rest of the celebration was pretty great as well. On my birthday, I had my first beta, bought a cute little Braves onesie for the baby and went out to eat with Joe. We always go to Provinos because it’s one of my favorite restaurans *and* you eat free on your birthday. It was fabulous.

That morning, Joe took me to Wes-Man’s for my birthday breakfast tradition, but this year I wasn’t able to get my name on the truck because it had rained the day before and overnight. I was kind of bummed, but there’s always next year.

On Friday, I got my birthday cake from Joe. We were too stuffed the night before to enjoy it. He and AJ sang to me, as they do every year.



Today, we headed down to Joe’s parents’ for the final installment of the birthday celebration. We had a yummy lunch of teryaki chicken, black bean burgers (for me!), red potatoes and green beans. And, Joe’s mom made a peanut butter pie for my “birthday pie”. Yum! They gave me a cute cat frame and Sex and the City, Season 1. Now, I just need a picture of all three of my furbabies together. 🙂


I have been dreading turning 29, but it’s turning out to be the best year ever.
