Welcome, welcome!

A quick welcome, as I wait in the car while hubby returns The Pump (more on that later, promise) to the ICLWers!

(UPDATED) Thanks for your patience - I have been running around all over the northern part of the state getting errands done today!
WELCOME to you ICLWers! I participated for a few months over a year ago, before conceiving. And then felt as if I shouldn't participate, being a PgAL blog. And then didn't feel comfortable participating as a SAL (success-after-loss) blog...
I hope the tags from the great Stirrup-Queen's list was clear enough that if you are here, you are comfortable reading a first-time-motherhood blog...

Anyways - as you can probably figure, I got pregnant almost 9 months after coming off BCP in May 2011, only to discover a missed miscarriage at what would have been 12 weeks in May of 2012...
We were so incredibly lucky to get pregnant again a few months later (5 months and 26 days, not that I was counting or anything. HA) and now have a five-month-old little boy named Benjamin!
(Ben at birth, and Ben last month on a flight to Seattle!)

So - welcome to the Buggy List -
what started as a place to tell of things I wanted to do during the enforced TTA (trying-to-avoid) time immediately following the MMC:
(hot yoga! lots of new martinis! Big scary rollercoasters! Paddleboarding! Basically, everything you can't do while pregnant...)
And then it became a list of things to do (while pregnant) before baby comes: taking an online photography class, taking care of my skin via a visit to the dermatologist (during which they found a mole that needed to be removed!), a big bathroom remodel (for which I still have yet to post the After pictures. It was done in July... aiy!)
Now it's just craziness - hopefully good humor (wait til you see my Ode to Pump later this week! hopefully it's as humorous as I'm building it up to be anyways...) and just life: entertaining and ever after!
