Nothing much new with the pregnant lady. A few cravings but nothing weird. Some slight nausea but not too bad.
The shopping has begun though.Some of Sunday was spent looking through the maternity section for Belly Bands (some Kung Fu looking belt device used to hold your pants up so you don't have to button them. Maybe I should get one too). We also found Belly Bars which are granola bars with all of the vitamins she needs. Seems like a good idea.
It's seems like it's harder to hide the pregnancy and so more people are finding out. We went over to a friends house to watch the hockey game where all of the guys were drinking beer. The girls ( who didn't know) offered Sam drinks which she kept declining. Eventually she had to tell them. Oh well, everyone is excited for us.
We are currently in Osoyoos previewing a new resort and about to go on a wine tour. Guess I'll be drinking two shares!

Anyway, nothing much new to report today, except that our first doctors appointment has been moved forward so its now going to be this coming Thursday at Peace Arch Hospital. Today is also "Grandpa" Rick & "Great-Nana" Joan's birthday so all three of us would like to wish them each a very Happy Birthday! Have a good weekend everyone!

The symptoms have started and are coming on strong. To avoid the risk of embarrassing my wife, I won't go into detail. Well at least not the embarrassing ones. Use your imagination. We’ve found that it’s best to eat lots of small meals during the day rather than 3 big meals. I made chicken tacos last night which went over well and nothing there seemed to cause any discomfort. Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream and green onions are now on the safe list. She likes coleslaw and I don’t know if that’s her first craving or just something she likes because I’m always handed the White Spot coleslaw when we go out. There is also a mountain of fruit on our counter that we’re going to be eating constantly. So far just apples, oranges and bananas and we’ll see how those react with our new found lifestyle.
We told our parents on Sunday night and it had to be the happiest room in the world. The look on our mothers faces when they opened up the bags with bibs in them was priceless. Fortunately Rachel caught the perfect moment like a paparazzi.
Then we made the round of phone calls from
We’re trying to keep the reigns on family members for now and we’ll let the rest of our friends know after 3 months (which I think is the beginning of June). So if you’re privileged enough to be reading this blog it means you’re in the know. Consider yourself lucky and don’t post it on Facebook. Weird that you have to tell people that.
After that it was back to the Berry household for some pictures of the new grandparents and the new aunties.

Nausea is starting. So far bacon and cucumbers are on the no-go list but like some magic elixir, sparkling water relieves the pain that those foods cause. Kind of like Legend of Zelda. Sam needs a regular helping of red or blue potions.

No one knows (besides 2 sisters, a friend and a drugstore owner who sold my wife 7 pregnancy tests) but my wife Samantha Nutley is pregnant.
Don't worry they were tears of joy. We hugged while the thought of future responsibility rushed between our brains. We're both very happy, excited, nervous and anxious. My wonderful wife went home after this and confirmed the results by taking 6 more pregnancy tests. I later that night took one too. Sorry to report but I'm not having a baby.
