19 weeks


Tomorrow I will be 19 weeks pregnant! Almost half way there! Last week we had an ultrasound. Everything looked great. It was so exciting to see our baby. I know this sounds weird, but I was afraid it wouldn’t be as exciting as the first time seeing Gabrielle. But, I was very wrong. It was just as exciting. Maybe even more to see Gabrielle’s brother or sister. 🙂

We didn’t find out the sex of the baby. In every picture they gave us, Jared says he can see a penis in every single one. 🙂 Even though that is what we both think this baby is, we will be completely happy either way.

This week I wasn’t feeling well. I was getting shaky and light-headed. I went to the doctor and found out I have low blood sugar. She told me to eat more protein and complex carbs. Let me tell you, I feel like a new woman! I feel like I did when I was pregnant last time, which is wonderful!


Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011


2010 was a pretty boring year in the Hartsock household. What I mean is, there was no bad drama or things to report (2009 was the year for that). Which in retrospect is a great year! So, I guess I shouldn’t say it was completely boring. We did get to see our baby girl grow before our very eyes. Our little “blob” of a baby has turned into a walking, semi-talking, smart little toddler. It is pretty amazing that a year ago she was 4 months old. I was dreading coming back to work. Now she is a very mobile, know it all diva (I say that in a loving way), who thinks the world revolves around her (which it does). 🙂 Another great thing this year is finding out we are going to have our 2nd baby!  But, goodbye 2010!

Hello, 2011. I am hoping you will be a great year. We are very excited because this year Baby Hartsock #2 will be making his/her entrance in the world, making Gabrielle a big sister! It will be a little stressful, but SO much fun! I don’t know what else 2011 will bring, but I am pretty excited to find out!
