15 Weeks

15 Weeks!

Hello.  It's the husband and father-to-be with another update.   Our little apple (I got the fruit right this time) is about 4 inches long!  Nicole is still struggling with morning sickness (which I now understand is a complete misnomer-- it should be "all the time sickness") and general fatigue.  The books I read all say this should be on the wane but not yet for us.  Hopefully soon?

Anyway, we told Nicole's extended family at Thanksgiving about our apple.  We surprised them.  Nicole said she wanted to have a "family picture" that I would take.  When everyone was posed I counted down and said "Everyone say 'Nicole is Pregnant'"! (instead of "cheese").  Most of her family was shocked and Nicole's 91 year old grandmother put her hands on her head and said "Oh my God!".  Then she told me: "It's about time."  

The Holidays are approaching so that's more announcements to make.  Spreading good cheer indeed!


  1. What a great way to tell everyone your wonderful news! And on Thanksgiving too!

    Nicole, I just want to thank you for all of your sweet remarks on my blog. You are such a good person and so kind. I am so glad that your pregnancy is going so well. You will be bringing home your rainbow baby! You deserve all of the happiness in the world.

    Morning sickness is rough - I had it for nearly the entire time I was pregnant with my son. It just means that everything is going as it should. I know you look at it as a blessing, and you know it will all be worth it once you lay eyes on your sweet angel. Sending you lots of hugs - hope you get to feeling better soon!

    1. Mel -- Thanks so much for your kind words, and for being a regular reader! You are so sweet and I feel so lucky to be able to follow your story and have you follow mine! It definitely helps sharing feelings with people who have been there and understand!

  2. SO glad to hear everything is going well! Yay for being well out of the first trimester! Are you going to find out gender? My morning sickness disappeared at 15 weeks...hopefully yours lets up soon. That must be miserable. Keep updating us. I can't wait to see some ultrasound pictures!
