Why I Haven't Been Blogging...


So, turns out I have found myself in an "Emily Kmetko" way.  Surprise!

All of the barfing and extreme fatigue had put a tiny damper in my ability to blog.  Or really, my ability to do anything but lay miserably on the couch.  Some people will have you believe that being knocked up is a wonderful and magical time.  They're lying.  Suffice it to say I haven't been landing any jaegers to my stomach in the past two months.  Assholes. 

That said, the miserable portion is more or less over for me, at least for now.  I am now entering the fat, happy, and hopefully bloggy stage.  This only strengthens my resolve to push the Spanny Tampson/ Uncle Tim ticket for the next FIG elections, because as it stands now, my offspring will be a mere five months short of being eligible for the 2028 Games.  Unacceptable!

So thanks for understanding, friends.  If anyone has a lead on some baby Mag 7 team finals onesies, please let me know.  Until then, I'll be hanging my Dougie posters in the nursery. TIA!

  6. I hear you, Spanny. I didn't love being pregnant either, and I never actually barfed. I DID however, develop a crazy condition called cholestasis in my third trimester that led to crazy itching (it was so much worse than it sounds) and, eventually, inducing labor three weeks early. And if you're on the fence at all about the epidural, GET THE EPIDURAL. It was wonderful.

  7. Congrats on the new future AA champ! Assuming that whole ineligible by 5 months thing is cleared up prior to 2028.

  8. Congrats! I always get angry when I think about how I would've been 20 days too young to compete in 2000. Never mind the fact that I never made it past level 5. So I definitely feel for you child. But Olympian or not, I'm positive your kid is going to be hilarious and awesome.

  10. Congrats spanny! You and are probably due right around the same time too. I also just left the nausea and headache-y fatigue stage. I told my level 5s last night night and they started picking out names.

  14. Congrats Spanny! That is great news, and the barbie picture at the beginning of this post is awesome. And yes, the first trimester BLOWS! Glad you're starting to feel more human again. :)

    I am a little dismayed to learn from this post that my own soon to be born child will be just two months short of being eligible for the 2028 Olympics, which as you said is unacceptable! I really think you and Uncle Tim should start campaigning for the next FIG elections NOW. :)

  15. Does the 2028 reference mean the mini-Spanny is expected to be a girl? None of my business, of course, but if you end up with a boy, he would be a great age for 2032. Congratulations and wishing you all the best.

  17. Congrats! I am due with my 2nd in May. One of my first thoughts after finding out was "darn, missed the gymnastics cutoff!". I firmly believe that 1st trimesters exist so that at any other point in the kid's life that seems hard on you, you can just remember that it is way better than the 1st trimester! When my 1st was a newborn I just kept thinking how much more energy I had then during the 1st trimester of death despite sleeping way less.
