I’ve never before been so excited to go to the doctor in my life!  I used to dread my annual “female” visit, but now I can’t wait to go see my OB…because that is the only place I can literally see an image of my baby!  It just makes it so real when you get […]

A case of the “huff-and-puffs”…. This is Greg’s new term for me, “huff-and-puff”.  Last night, let’s just say, I was experiencing the common pregnancy symptom of irrationality.  I don’t know what caused the switch, but as soon as I got home last night from work, I was not the ususal joyful wife that my husband […]

Hint for today’s ID the PC clue:  look at the bottom right hand corner of this page for a “Pregnancy ticker” to find out my due date.     Thank you!  I have been blown away, inspired, and encouraged by your calls, emails, and gifts!  To the left in the picture are two wonderful gifts I’ve received from listeners.  Handmade […]

Picture Day!  Here’s some of the latest pics from my pregnant adventures: Me in my kitchen making my first load of bread from scratch.  I guess since my mother knows I’ll be cooking for her Grandchild, she has me in “mommy bootcamp”.  She says, “nothing but fresh and organic.”   I guess I need to move on from […]

I’m still here!  Really!  I’ve been working double shifts this week and my schedule is not normal so I haven’t had as much time to blog lately.  I have been filling in for Susan on The Morning Show from 5am-9am and then back again in my regular slot on the afternoon show from 4pm-7pm.  It’s […]

Currently Reading: Prayers for the Mother to Be                                    Who will the baby look like?                      Amanda?                  or                          Greg? I think one things for sure, the baby will like to smile! So, my usual routine in the mornings is to wake up around 7am…spend some time in prayer and like my Grandma taught me, read the […]

This morning, my mom and I took “the girls” (my dogs Indy and Inga) on a long walk.  It felt so good!  I’ve been reading that’s one of the best exercises a pregnant woman can do.  I enjoyed it so much!  It’s better then pounding your feet on a treadmill at the gym with your […]

A 3D image of a 13 week old baby   “Just as you’ll never understand the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman,  So you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does.”          Ecclesiastes 11:5 (The Message) But, isn’t it fun trying to understand, and experiencing all the good that God does […]

The time has come to start buying maternity clothes! I’m having mixed feelings about this though.  On one hand, it’s exciting to start seeing my body change to make room for baby!  On the other hand, I think of all the hard work I’ve done over the past year to loose 30 pounds and go from […]
