Just for kicks and giggles...

Have you seen these little pregnancy questionnaires that some fill out on a regular basis?  I was thinking that it would give me a little laugh to do one of my own. 

How far along:  11 months, 2 weeks.  A little overdue, wouldn't you say? 
Total weight gain/loss: probably a few pounds gained...I may have eaten a whole box of Cosmic brownies...but I did also go running this week so I'd call it all about even.  
Maternity clothes: Well I did buy a maxi dress at Ross that could possibly be passed as a maternity dress...but it is so super cute and comfortable. 
Sleep:  like a baby.  Except I would love a new mattress. 
Best moment this week: one that is coming - an awesome date night on Saturday to celebrate Richard being done, DONE!, with his first full time clinical.  Now the summer can really start! 
Movement:  my stomach may have gurgled this morning...
Food cravings:  always chocolate.  Always.  I had some cramps yesterday and needed comfort food.  I came back with milk duds, cosmic brownies, and ice cream bars.  Oh and some strawberries and asparagus to balance it all out. 
What I miss:  our baby.  Hopefully he or she is coming so soon! 
What I'm looking forward to:  The day our sweet birthmomma contacts us and tells us she wants to place her baby with us!  The day when our baby is placed in our arms!  The day we get to bring our baby home!  The day we get to be sealed to our baby!  The day we get to play and kiss and hug our baby! 
Milestones:  We have to have our home study updated next week....not so sure that is a milestone though...
Realization of the Week:  I'm going back to work in a few short weeks.  I really thought THIS would be the year I would be home with the cutest little baby ever.  But alas I am heading back to work.  I guess I will just have to made do playing with/teaching the cutest kindergarteners ever!  I have slowly started to work on some kindergarten things for this year and it has been fun to think of some new ideas!  They are my babies for now and I hope they are getting excited for a fun year in kindergarten!  


  1. I haven't ever seen one of these! Kind of cute. Yeah, I think the labor of your "pregnancy" is a LOT harder than the labor that goes on in a hospital! Keeping you in my prayers!

  2. Such a cute idea! I loved how you filled it out, so cute. I wish you all the best:-) and will keep my eyes out for you. Oh and I was wondering you YW camp went? Let me know, would love to hear about it!

  3. LOVE THIS!!! i saw on a blog where this adoptive mother compared paperwork and the waiting to labor and delivery. we are all going through a "pregnancy".

    the last paragraph...i have a fear we will be doing the same. hang on! this WILL happen for y'all. for us. i can't wait to see you post that y'all have been chosen!

    {and thank you SO much for sharing our button. we plan to add buttons to our blog, too. you will be one of them. :) }
