About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Spillin' the Beans

Well, I may as well go ahead and reveal some big news: I'm pregnant!

Originally, I was gonna wait awhile longer to unveil this giant nugget of news on the blog, but seeing as all of our family and friends now know, I figured I may as well expand the web of knowledge to include you guys: the interweb.

So, there you have it: Norah's gonna be a big sister!

I'm due May 30th, so I'm still in the first trimester and have been feeling pretty much as I did when I was preggo with Norah: pukey and tired. Some days are better than others, but most days include at least some nausea and too many days include at least some barfing.

I'll write more on how this has impacted running as of late, but for now, I'll allow you to absorb the news and flood my comments section with "congrats!" Go ahead, let the gushing commence.

Congratulations!!! How exciting!

Jrahn said...

Yay! Congrats!

I started reading your blog when I was pregnant with my Addison and you were pregnant with N....they were born seven days apart.

I'm pregnant again, also, with a baby boy who's due on January 27. I've gotta admit that the morning sickness this time around was INTENSE (and I thought it was horrible with Addie – which it was). Anecdotally, I've heard that m/s lasts longer and is more intense with the second baby. That was certainly the case for me. But the good news is that time FLIES with the second pregnancy!

Kayla said...

Wahoo! Congrats!!! Very exciting!

Christine said...

Wait up, were you pregnant toward the end of your streak? You must have been! You are even more hardcord than I thought!

Big congrats to you, Jer and Norah! Exciting news!

nicole said...

Yay! Congrats!

Someday you'll also have to start including tips on balancing mommyhood, running, and being a prof. I don't have any little ones yet, but even the tenure track and running don't always play nice together.

heathermareed said...

ahhhhhhh! SO exciting! Congratulations!!! Wow, and I was amazed by the streaking before knowing you were also growing a person, amazing. Wishing that for you the previous comment about "longer and more intense" isn't true. I also started following you last Jan when I was pregnant (my girl born 09.26) but won't be joining you with this one for at least a few more months :)

Wait, I meant to say I started following you in Jan 09 when we were both pregnant. That's why I said something about joining you "this time." Boy the past two years have FLOWN by! Best wishes, I'm excited to follow this journey with you again :)

Kelly said...

Awesome. I don't know how you streaked while pregnant (funny out of context) but wow. Congratulations. I'm due April 3rd, so excited to hear about someone else who's pregnant and such.

The Jogger Blogger said...

I'm due April 6th and I had the same title for my blog the day I revealed my big secret! It's so much fun spreading the news, isn't it?!?

Congratulations to you and hubby! So excited for you...and Nora will make a great big sister!

Jess said...

What exciting news!!!! Yay Jess!!!!

I'm really interested to hear if you're still planning to run all those races you had mentioned earlier.

Agate Lake Girl said...

I'm so glad you came out on the blog. For some reason every comment I wanted to make lately suggested at your preggo status. I skipped commenting all together for fear of accidentally spilling the beans!

Congrats again! :)

Crystal said...

I am so happy for you guys! Norah is gonna make a great big sis!

Adam said...

Yay! Now you're totally going to have to get a doublewide jogging stroller

Neese said...

congratulations Jess! Norah will be a great big sis! :)

Courtney @ I CAN DO THIS said...

Congratulations!!

Danielle said...

How exciting! Congrats!

sRod said...

I know I'm super late to this party. But congrats!!!!

I must point out though that you and my sister are pregnant at the same time again (you are three months behind her this time, vs. two months last time). This is creepy. It doesn't help that you both live and work in the same county.
