Back in the Swing of Things

I'm so glad that Bryson has posted about some of the poems from the Concert he's conducting this coming week, otherwise there wouldn't have been a post for a long time. But I do have a reason why I've been absent to the blogging world.

I've been gaining some weight...okay quite a bit of weight....

Then pair that with my cravings for fruit popsicles, and cool ranch doritos and that can only mean one thing....We're pregnant!!!! That's right folks, in 5 months time there will be a new little Mortensen. :) We are so excited. I'm due the end of May and I'm about 16 weeks and feeling great! My aversions to food are mostly gone which is so nice, and I have energy again. Morning sickness wasn't terrible, mostly just nauseous days spent on the couch. My next doctor's appointment is at about 18 weeks and right before Christmas so there's a chance we might find out what we're having. If not we have to wait till we get home. But that's okay. We're just so excited to have this little one in our lives!!


Me at 16 weeks. I have realized that when you're short there's no where for the baby to go but out, so I started to show early.

  11. Congrats! The funny thing is that the baby is less than a pound right now...I'm 20 weeks and my doctor compared it to an avocado, 14 oz. Why do we look so pregnant if the baby is so small?
