WELCOME TO THE NEW CONFESSIONS OF A YOUNG MARRIED COUPLE WEBSITE! Well, after months of trying to pretend we know anything at all about building a website, Chris and I have finally done it.  We have a website.  I don’t know if any of you have ever tried to take on a large, creative task with your partner before, but I’d like to make a suggestion to you – don’t do it.  Ever.  It’s bad for business and bad for your marriage.  I can’t tell you how many times Chris…

The Breaking Point

The Breaking Point

I think I have finally answered the age-old question:  How long can the husband of an expectant wife keep his sanity?  The answer would be seven and a half months. Chris is revolting against my pregnancy.  Its not a problem with me or with the Bean, I think he has just finally had his limit of fetching, caring, and empathizing.  I’ve noticed that there have been less foot rubs in the past couple weeks.  And where he used to tuck me in bed every night, helping me strategically place each…

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

I have spring fever.  Bad.  New England has the best spring ever, I think.  But waiting for it is like waiting for Christmas morning.  Some days its warm, but rainy so you can’t enjoy it.  Some days its sunny, but freezing cold so you can’t enjoy it then either.  And then there are those rare, illusive March days where the stars align and it is miraculously sunny AND warm at the same time.  And you have to go to work.  So, you sit in your office, pressed against your window,…

A Pause During Pregnancy

A Pause During Pregnancy

THINGS I MISS ABOUT MY PRE-PREGNANCY LIFE 1.  Diet Coke – I’m sure that I could have some in moderation, but I read somewhere a long time ago that they didn’t know how the sweetener in diet drinks effected babies and so I have steered clear.  But, oh how I miss them.  I think they miss me, too. 2.  My feet – I know they are still down there, but its been a while since I’ve seen them.  I hope they are doing okay. 3.  Spicy tuna rolls – I…

Ring Around My Fat Finger

Ring Around My Fat Finger

In the past few weeks my hands have started to swell pretty badly and almost every day. Its gotten to the point now where if it happens and I am still wearing my wedding and engagement rings, they get stuck. Chris keeps getting on to me saying that I need to stop wearing the rings or else he’s going to have to cut them off of me one day. I compromised and am now only wearing my wedding band. I love my wedding band.  It wasn’t actually the one I…

Bellycast as Still Life

Bellycast as Still Life

So, apparently a lot of people had trouble viewing the fourth Bellycast that I posted this weekend.  In the Bellycast, I finally unveiled the nursery.  So exciting!  So exciting that I thought I’d post pictures for anyone who wasn’t able to view the video. Here is the view from the nursery doorway.  The room is actually a very small bedroom.  Its the perfect size for a very small person.  Everything fits, but just barely, so some of the pictures are hard to see. This is the crib and the bedding…

Smarter Than I Think I Am

Smarter Than I Think I Am

Our friends, Matt and Mary, had their second baby three weeks ago so last night Chris and I ventured over to say hello and meet their newest addition.  She’s beautiful.  And she smells good.  And she slept the whole time.  All very good things for a new mom-to-be to see.  Matt and Mary told us all about the baby – how she was adjusting and how the family was doing adjusting to her.  Mary took me into the baby’s room and showed me some of the tricks of the trade…

Cuddling with a Pregnant Lady

Cuddling with a Pregnant Lady

Last night Chris and I were laying on the couch watching March Madness.   (For the record, I am number 1 in our pool right now, thankyouverymuch…   Chris is number 8, but whose counting?)   Its getting harder and harder to cuddle up together.   Actually, its been darn near impossible in the last few weeks.   My belly takes up most of the room on the couch, leaving Chris to either curl up in a ball at the far end or fend for himself on the tiny loveseat….
