While You Were BlogHer-ing…


…we went and got married again.

We Went And Got Married Again.
It was a perfect day, preceded by weeks of utter exhaustion and chaos. We have new respect for wedding planners who uses wedding favor candles for the best weddings: this was the most low-key party ever to be thrown outside of a parental backyard, and it nearly killed us. But it did not. The food was good (and the caterer’s partner, a dentist, fixed our bridesmaid’s broken tooth that morning), we didn’t run out of wine (even if the champagne was served not at all when we’d intended), and, after an Indian friend bustled me off to a corner to pin me in more appropriately, the sari ended up being the perfect choice for glamorously concealing my lost waist.
Today is our real first OB appointment (not to be confused with the “holy shit, I’m panicking” appointment two weeks ago). Exciting, but terrifying. I’m convinced, now that we’ve told a few close friends and the parents and the aunts and uncles who were in town for the wedding, that the universe will take it all back. Hubris is a particular fear of mine, you understand.
It’s also that the two weeks since the panic appointment are by far the longest I’ve gone without seeing a doctor in months. It is very difficult to believe that my body could know what to do without constant intervention, and knowing how little useful intervention exists at this stage of the game does not help.
(What also doesn’t help is the light brown spotting I’ve had most days in between these appointments. It has never become any of the things the nurse told me to call back about — heavy, red, very crampy — but it is hard to be sanguine about it.)
(My God, what a terrible pun. Apologies.)

  1. You are both simply stunning 🙂 I loved the flowers in your hair 🙂 congrats!

  2. Congratulations. Sounds wonderful. You look fabulous!
    Speedy & I also got married again recently (first time, for us, legally; second time for family & friends.) CRAZINESS– the planning and doing, but so wonderul to have those memories & photos.
    Glad to hear everything is going ok. I [heart] terrible puns, especially smart ones 😉 I spotted on & off until my 11th week. everything is still so far so good.

  3. Congratulations! It looks like it was lovely.

  4. Congrats! It sounds like everything turned out perfectly–and now you can settle in and enjoy the pregnancy. The sari was a gorgeous choice, btw.

  5. Beautiful! Sounds like a perfect day 🙂
    Hoping everything is going well and that your spotting is just one of those annoying things that mean nothing bad. Lots of love to you!

  6. Been wondering about you two. Congrats! Sounds pretty great.

  7. Nice news!
    I had a good deal of brown bleeding all the way through with Harry, and they could never quite pin down which uterus it was from. Not necessarily something to worry about.

  8. Congratulations! You both look wonderful!

  9. Congrats! Loved reading about the wedding. I fucking hate the spotting, but it really is okay. I have had a number of brown tinges when I wipe lately (not making it onto my underwear but still there nonetheless). I've almost gotten to the point where I don't notice it. (Almost). Can't wait to hear about today's appointment.

    (PS: Did you really think our waists would disappear so quickly? I'm already popped and that is bat-shit insane I tell you.)

  10. Congratulations! I love weddings *happy sigh*. You both look wonderful! Love the flowers and the sari.

    Spotting, eh, pregnancy hormones do all sorts of WEIRD to a cervix. And you have two. So. Fingers crossed all is well at the OB appointment.

  11. Congrats! Looks lovely!

  12. Beautiful! I love the sari. What a great idea for a wedding dress. I think all the chaos and stress is hard to avoid unless you elope. 🙂

  13. Beautiful! Congrats. Again. 🙂

  14. Congrats to you both! Sounds like a lovely event.

  15. Oh you both look gorgeous! It looks like a beautiful ceremony 🙂 Congratulations!

  16. Congrats! It sounds like a beautiful day.
