28 weeks…


i know it has been a VERY long time (10 weeks to be exact) since last i posted…

i am at 28 weeks this week. pretty amazing! yippes… picture of the ever expanding belly below šŸ™‚

belly last week @ 27 weeks

i have been feeling a bit better over all… but was still being plagued by almost daily bouts of the runs – it has been 7 MONTHS of being afraid to go far from the loo, ”just in case”… i just went off dairy this week (already i am off gluten for 6 years now, because i have celiac). it is sad for me to have NO cheese and NO butter and NO real ice cream – i had already been avoiding milk, guess i somehow ”knew” deep down that dairy was a problem for me šŸ˜¦

my mom is coming to visit nov 3rd for 9 days! i am SO very excited to see her and spend some time with her. it is hard that my folks live so far away.

on monday dakota and i are going to CT to get married (shot gun elopement). it is going to be a blast. next year at this time we will have a big party/celebration with all of our family and friends – and our little girl who will be 9 months old by then – but for now (next week), it will be just the two of us and the justice of the peace, a photographer and some video – so we can show it at our party next year.

we are doing well, still holding our breath a bit till we get through this and our little one is with us… the fear never completely leaves though it gets smaller and the excitement grows with each passing week.

got a sweet request to fill you all in on how we were doing, so now you all know. i have been trying to follow along on all your journeys… even though i don’t comment as much these days. my heart is still with you all.

  1. Didn’t anyone ever tell you that horizontal stripes make you look pregnant? Heh! It’s beautiful.
    I’m so sorry that you are still not feeling great. No dairy. Damn.
    But yay for getting hitched! Have a good wedding and a better marriage.

  2. I was wondering just earlier how you guys were doing. It’s good to have you check in a bit. Congrats on your upcoming nuptuals. šŸ˜€

  3. I love the picture! You look absolutely beautiful! Have fun in CT – you’ll have a great time this year and next.

    If you haven’t tried coconut milk ice cream, I highly recommend (http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/purely_decadent_Coconut_Milk.html). It’s probably not as rich as the real thing, but it’s so good and much better than the soy and rice varieties. I could eat a whole pint of chocolate peanut butter swirl or mint chip…mmm.

    Lots of love. xoxo

  4. You look absolutely fantastic! I love the idea of getting married before your daughter arrives: that is very sweet and pictures you will always cherish. I am so sad for you about the dairy issue and I hope the coconut milk ice cream is good.
