Holiday photo dump + 23/24 weeks

Merry belated Christmas!  Can you even believe that 2013 is almost over already?  I certainly can’t.  

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday 🙂

I thought I would share some of the pictures I took over my holiday vacation in New York because I know you guys can barely keep your hair on in anticipation of these photos.  I aim to please, people!

So, put your hair back on because here are the pictures…


ImageWe take our puzzles/parcheesi very seriously in this family


ImageImpromptu photo shoot in front of the tree


ImageIt was a full house that included 4 dogs — 2 boxers and 2 wiener dogs (above is a picture of Rocco & then me + Scooby; Otis & Buster did not make it in the photos but I don’t love them any less, promise).




ImageI made everyone stand on the porch and take pictures together.  Above are a few of the many I took.  The pictures came out less than stellar but I think everyone was over the moon about having to get off the couch and stand in the cold.  You’re welcome everyone!


ImageSince the doctor has ordered me to halt my workouts (more on that later), I decided to become one with nature and take a 2 mile walk every day in New York.  My mother-in-law informed me that I don’t “need to worry because the bears are hibernating.”  Hmmmm, maybe me and nature should not be one after all!

ImageAnother day we drove into Brooklyn (my in-laws live about a 1.5 hour drive northwest of NYC) and this was the only photo I managed to take.  Whatever.  Sue me.

In other news, I am already more than 5.5 months pregnant, HOLY SHIT BATMAN!!!  That means this baby will be here in less than 3.5 months, whoa.  Here are a couple of pictures that show me in the last couple of weeks (compare those to what I looked like at 13 weeks, what a difference, huh?)…





Anyway, everything is going along quite swimmingly save for one thing: I have placenta previa.  I won’t bore you with the details but I will say that basically my placenta is sitting low (on my cervix) which means that working out can cause some major problems for me.  This was some pretty devastating news my doctor gave me but you know what?  It certainly could be worse.  The doctor thinks that it still could move up which would allow me to have a regular ole’ vaginal delivery.  If not, I’ll probably have a C-section 3 weeks early.  Either way, I’m sure it will all work itself out 🙂

In the meantime, I will be spending all my gym-time walking on the treadmill.


Happy New Year!!!!
