I think I'm pregnant! That's what the test says. I was locked out of the apartment after work so I went to the bar downstairs to wait for Adam to get home (I ordered seltzer and edamamme). I couldn't stand the waiting though, so I went and got a pregnancy test and took it in the bathroom! It turned positive in like five seconds! When Adam finally go home I walked and told him, "I think I'm pregnant." We both had the same reaction -– "interesting." I think I'm in denial.

It's official! I went to see my doctor today, and I am officially pregnant! He gave me a picture of the sonogram. You can't really see anything except a little sac where the baby will grow. I don't really feel any different, but I am going to go through all the junk in our house and keep nothing but healthy food!

I'm eight weeks pregnant, and I feel like crap. It's like I have a hangover that won't go away. I am nauseous all the time (all day, everyday) and all I want to eat is pizza or salty carbs. I really wanted to be healthy and eat tons of veggies for the baby, but all I want is junk food -– and lots of it. I've been a vegetarian for about two years and now I want chicken and milk (real milk, from a cow and not an almond). We are heading to California next week and I'm dreading the flight and the airplane food. I think I'm going to have to bring food on the plane and also my coffee for café con leche. If I don't have café con leche in the morning then poor Adam's going to have a miserable time on our vacation.

It's a girl! I am so happy. I would have been happy with a boy, but I think deep down I really wanted a girl. I told Adam to get ready for headbands and tutus! I've been dying to buy the baby something but wanted to wait until we knew what it was. So after our appointment I made him stop a children's shop on Madison and we bought her a hat! My winter coat is starting to get really snug –- and by snug I mean that I can get it around my belly or my boobs. I really don't want to buy a new coat, but I also can't get through the next two months wearing Adam's coat. It's just not cute. On a happier note, I am starting to feel less sick!

I am 27 weeks. Crazy! We just got back from a weeks vacation in Turks and Caicos. It was SO nice. Adam and I had the best time together. It was so nice to sit in the warm sun and do nothing! The first day we were there I didn't feel her moving at all so I started to get sort of worried. But by day two she was back to her usual kicking around. And no more nausea! We walked on the beach everyday, and I think we might have had lobster at almost every meal. Adam surprised me and set up a ceremony to renew our wedding vows. It was beautiful. He even secretly bought me a white dress and snuck it on the plane. I still can't believe it. I feel so lucky.
