Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

So I am sitting here in the living room and I keep smelling bananas. It has been driving me crazy for the past hour! Finally I realized that it was the 2 bananas in my kitchen. They are just now ripe so there is no reason for the to "smell". And they are about 25 feet away from me so I am surprised that I can smell that at all. I feel like a bloodhound!!! I can smell odors (good and bad) before I even enter a house. I went to my mom's house the other day and I could tell what she was cooking almost as soon as I got out of the car.

Other than this and most foods tasting different I have no other symptoms. I was worried about it before but now I am just enjoying it. There is 8 months for me to be ill, so I will take advantage of this time that I am feeling well.

I have begun purchasing maternity clothing. Yes, I know that it is early, but plus size maternity is a little more difficult to find and quite expensive. So far I have purchased 2 skirts from Ebay and a top from a resale shop. Not a lot, but enough to make me feel like I have accomplished something. Hopefully I have twins and will start to show within the next two months!!! Less than 2 weeks to go before we know how many!!!! WOO!


  1. I could smell the guy 2 doors down when he was smoking on his deck.

  2. Exciting, exciting!!! Thanks for the describing the smells! Too funny! As someone who's never been pregnant, I love to hear these stories! :)



I love comments! They make me feel important.
