Spilling the Beans

If you’ve been reading this blog for the last few months (yay!!! I love you!( then you probably have a few questions, the most predominant being “where are all the new recipes!?”

Once I can walk into the kitchen without doubling over I promise to have this blog swimming in recipes. I guess I should start at the beginning huh? Funny story… Right before Christmas last year I decided it was time to partake in a little experiment involving a pricey plastic stick and the contents of my bladder.  Fun stuff.  Those of you wondering why I had “the plague” for the past three months are suddenly seeing light bulbs, huh?  Oh yes, I’m SUPER pregnant. I say super, because when I saw the ultrasound of the little guy/gal, it promptly broke out in a frenzied wave and then rolled over to face the camera. Such a ham!  The second that little pipsqueak waved at me I was a goner.

the plague? really jenn? 

Haha welllll what else was I supposed to call fabulously unyielding 24-hour morning sickness? I really did believe I was turning into a full-fledged zombie at times.  Though I may have been a bit dramatic each time I rolled over in bed screaming “BRAIIIINS!” at Paul. I’ll clearly do anything for a laugh.For the first few months nearly all I could eat was saltines and the plainest of carbohydrates. Anything that didn’t taste like cardboard made me turn ten shades of green, and the simple act of cooking and experimenting in the kitchen? Downright impossible.

I probably looked a lot like a kicked puppy during this time. I’ll spare you the not-so-fun details. I tried every herbal, homeopathic remedy under the sun as well as the meds the doctor put me on for hyperemesis, but nothing worked. Nearly passing out in a Whole Foods was a cue that maybe a little bit of bed rest was in order. Blogging, as you kids already know, went on the back burner and I’m eternally grateful for those of you who stuck around and continued to check in on me.  You’re seriously the best!  Also, biggest thanks ever to the womb raider and the bestie for taking care of me while I channel pregnant zombie barbie.

I wrote this post a few weeks ago in hopes that by the time I was ready to reveal that my oven had been bunned, I would be past all the queasiness and the fun times spent with my head in the toilet.  Turns out every pregnancy really is different.  Mine is just *extra* fun with hyperemesis gravidarum that has followed me into the second trimester.  Luckily I can somewhat tolerate most of the whole foods that I couldn’t bear to look at previously…  I just feel as if someone poisoned me after I eat it.  Unless it’s bagels.  I can eat my weight in pumpernickel.  Feel free to show up on my doorstep with some.

how did this all go down?

Um…  Well, when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much…  Hah!  You know the drill!  Paul and I were super lucky and learned the news at the same time.  Ironically out of the billions of tests I’d probably taken over the last year and a half it was the one he was actually present for that came out positive.  We got a bit misty and proceeded to spin and dance around like maniacs.

I let my 5 year old niece break the news to the rest of the family.  Leave it to me to find amusement in telling a secret to a preschooler and then waiting to see how long it takes for her to crack and spill the beans.  She held out surprisingly long!

Though stage-whispering, “Aunt Jenn, you’re going to get REALLY fluffy!” across the dinner table is bound to raise suspicions.

Hellooooo stretchy pants!  I’m currently 14 weeks pregnant and due in August.

Here goes nothing!

so… what does that mean for Peas & Crayons?

Zip.  Zilch.  Zero.  Nada!  I’m a determined little blogger and I will continue to only write blog posts about the things I personally want to read.  Expect more veggie-loaded recipes, the occasional baking endeavor, meal planning, What I Ate Wednesday party shenanigans, and hopefully more artsy fartsy and DIY posts as well.  That’s my shtick and I’m sticking to it!

Of course the little clementine will get a mention here and there, especially if a recipe results from a weird craving or something cracks me up about the whole pregnancy process.  Like the fact that my friends are taking bets on my boobs reaching Jenny McCarthy-sized proportions now that I’m with child.  Though I think they’re really just waiting for me to go for a run and knock myself out with one of these puppies.  So yeah, P&C will be a lot more of the same song and dance.  Well, hopefully with a LOT more recipes once my “plague” dials down the intensity.  Bring on the veggies!

All jokes and quips aside, thank you so so much for all your love and support.  It means the absolute world to me.

So now the cat’s out of the bag… the pea’s out of the pod… and I’m out of my freaking mind.

Be a doll and bring me a bagel?

    Aww-congrats! Such great news!! Sooo happy for you!

  • That baby is going to be ridiculously good looking!! All the best and HUGE congrats!!!!

  • congrats!!!! what fantastic news!!! that nausea is rough, i was sick until 20 weeks with my little bundle the only thing i could eat was fast food. it was disgusting 😉 i had to go on pills from the doc so i feel your pain. i had a sneaking suspicion you were preggers… i think my pregger sense was tingling. i am not preggers anymore, my little man was born last week!! i shared some pics today on my blog if you want to get a snuggly baby fix 🙂 all that sickness was worth it, he is amazing. i seriously want to do nothing but snuggle and stare at him all day. so excited for you and Paul, this is truly a wonderful time and i hope you enjoy every moment!!!

  • I am just catching up on my reader, but holy moly CONGRATS!!! Sooooo sososoo happy for you!!! 😀 <3

  • I’m just reading this for the first time, CONGRATS! I have 3 children and never had a problem with food with the first 2 pregnancies. I didn’t have morning sickness ever..but the smell of food made me nauseous! We ate fast food everyday for the first 3 months..I could not cook then eat, it was terrible. Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

  • CONGRATULATIONS! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was super pregnant (with our trio), so I know all about the morning sickness, which was actually middle-of-the-night sickness that turned into most of the day for me. All I can say is this: It will go away, and you’ll barely remember it happened you feel so good in the second trimester. At least, I hope that happens for you, too. 🙂 Take care of your sweet self!

  • Just heard the news!! Congrats!! 🙂

  • Congratulations!!! I’m so happy for you both!!

  • OMG!!!! MY LITTLE FERRET IS PREGGERS!!!! I’m so happy for you and love how you broke it to your family. What an impressive little pre-schooler. Congrats times a million to you and Paul. Your baby will be beautiful and veggie loving!

  • Congrats Jenn! Enjoy every moment of it! I hope the morning sickness eases up! Ginger lollypops and Zofran got me through the first 31 weeks of my pregnancy. I also took a pregnancy yoga class that was so so wonderful! I labored in less than 6 hours and I give that class credit for it! So happy for you!! Being a mama is the most beautiful thing in the world!

  • congratulations! I haven’t been following for very long but am super excited for you! Make sure you look after yourself. I found if I got dehydrated or too hungry it made the sickness worse – all I could stomach for a long time were potato chips! Good luck and looking forward to seeing how it all goes for you x

  • CONGRATULATIONS!! That’s so exciting! I’m sorry you’ve been suffering so far, but I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end! 🙂

  • CONGRATULATIONS JENN! This is such exciting news! I practically squealed my head off when I twigged where you were going in this post 😀 It sucks that your pregnancy has thus far been marred by the plague, but fingers crossed that you’re over the worst now. Sending you loads of love & big hugs xxx

  • Huge Congratulations to you Jenn!! Such lovely news 🙂 I hope the morning sickness clears away soon and you can eat to your hearts and growing belly’s content without any more plague symptoms! <3 Big hugs to you and your family!

  • Yay! I’m a long time reader, but needed to comment and say congratulations!! 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better soon!!

  • iris

    Oh, wow, that’s exciting! Hopefully the sickness fades away, that totally sucks.

  • THRILLED for you!! So hoping this sickness wanes and you can savor every pregnant moment!! HUGS!

  • Holy buckets yay!! I was wondering what was up with the “plague” for so long! I wish I lived by you so I could bring bagels and give you a hug!

    Congratulations to you and your boy! And I really hope you start to feel better soon! <3 <3

  • Congratulations Jenn! You’re going to be awesome parents!

    xoxo

  • I KNEW IT. 🙂
    Congrats- you will be a fantastic mama!!!!

  • Congratulations!!! Such an exciting journey – your little one is so lucky to have you two as parents. So exciting!!

  • Congratulations!!!! Hope you feel better for the rest of your pregnancy

  • Congratulations! I’m sorry to hear that you are “plagued” with morning sickness though 🙁 Hopefully that will go away real soon and you’ll enjoy being pregnant even more!

  • Congratulations! I cannot wait to see what you come up with for recipes while pregnant (I’m thinking something with pickles and peanut butter will be in the works 😀 ). I also can’t wait to see how you design the baby’s room!

  • Whoo hoo!!! I had my suspicions…but you know, I’m not one to make assumptions. Considering how sick everyone has seemed to be this winter–including me, who is most decidedly NOT pregnant, but if you know someone who might want to be a baby daddy, send him on up to VA–it would either seem that pregnancy is the new swine flu, or we are just all at “that age.”

    LOVE to you and Paul…and the baby pea. Or maybe baby crayon? Like those fat, chunky ones you use when you are two?

  • CONGRATS!!!!

  • Firstly a huge congratulations on the pregnancy!

    Secondly I know I’m a little late to the party but I just did my first ever What-I-ate-Wednesday post and wanted to thank you for the continued inspiration!

  • I would bring you a TRUCKLOAD of bagels any day love!

    “Now that the pea’s out of the pod” <-LOVE it! Love you! Love the pea…even if the little nugget is making my gal feel like warmed up poo! 😉 xoxox

  • Congratulations to expecting a little pea, Jenn! … but wouldn’t it rather be spilling the peas here then ;)?!

  • Congratulations Jenn!!! Very exciting news. I hope you have a good pregnancy 🙂

  • Huge Congratulations! This is the funniest, cutest thing I’ve read in a long time!! Amazing!!

  • Congrats! So excited for you both! 🙂

  • Congratulations!! Such wonderful news 🙂

  • YAHOO! CONGRATS!!! I was really hoping u weren’t giving up on blogging! I hope your sickness goes away soon. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • I KNEW ITTTT!!!!!!! Seriously I think I have a 6th sense for sensing blogger pregnancy. Congratulations honey! You’re going to be the greatest mommy ever!!

  • AAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Congratulations! Mazal tov a bajillion times over! What awesome news – you’re going to be a fabulous mama, and the wee one is lucky to have you as his/her mom!

  • OMG a million congrats!! SO happy for you and your little pea!!!!

  • Congrats lady!!! 🙂

  • So, so, so happy for you!!! Glad your sickness is actually something with a little present at the end. After holding your little pea in your arms, you won’t even remember all of the puking….not much of it anyway! 😉

  • Oh my gosh, how freaking exciting!!! I can honestly say that you are the nicest blogger that I read and I can think of no one who deserves this more than you right now. I can’t wait read to all about it (however much you choose to post that is…). By the title of this post I was expecting that you to say that you were done with blogging, but this is completely on the opposite spectrum. Not bad at all. Quite amazing actually! 🙂 Oh… and now “the plague” makes perfect sense. 😀

  • and a great big heartfelt (169th) congratulations to The peas and crayons family! More peas? More crayons? Baby pea? Baby crayon? No that doesn’t sound right. Anyway- best to you and hopefully you’ll be feeling better as quick as a wink. xoxo -Deirdre

  • Awww, so exciting!! So happy for you Jenn. Congrats! 🙂

  • So happy for you! I suspected a little something. 🙂

  • Jenn! OMG, congrats! I haven’t blogged in a while and was ecstatic to stop by and read about this! Super thrilled for you!

  • Congrats! With two teenagers, I can promise you many upcoming years of sheer joy, utter disgust and love like you have never felt before. Blessings on you and the pregnancy…feel free to ask me anything. Us Moms (yes, you are one now) have to stick together. 🙂

  • Congratulations! That is great news!

  • Congratulations!!!!

  • Oh congratulations! I love how you shared the news with the family. Too funny!

  • ekkkkk!! So exciting!!! Congrats you two!

  • Congrats!! beautiful news 🙂

  • Oh my goodness, how exciting!! Congratulations!! “the pea’s out of the pod”, so sweet. XOXO

  • Anna @ Your Healthy Place

    Wow congrats Jenn! That’s amazing news. Take as long a break as you need from food and recipe development – I can only imagine how tough that must be when the only thing you can stomach is bland white stuff! Nausea is never fun. I hope you feel better soon – my friend had debilitating nausea her whole first trimester and everyone assured her it would vanish in her second but it was still there…then magically, halfway through her second trimester, it vanished! So it can go at any time. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that it will go soon!

  • Congratulations! You will be a great mom! When I was pregnant with our first child my mother-in-law told me to take extra vitamin B6 and that should take care of any morning sickness. She was so right. I never had any morning sickness with either child. I am sure everyone has been telling you all kinds of helpful information. Congratulation again to you and Paul. Hope my comment gets through.

  • Congratulations Jenn!!!!

  • This world needs more Pauls and Jenns…basically Paul is hot and you are a babe. I’m all for pretty people procreating!!! Congrats lady!

  • Congrats to you and Paul!!! xoxo

  • Colleen

    I knew it!!! I said something is up and I bet that’s it. Congrats!! so happy for you guys : )

  • AHHHH a thousand congratulations!!!!!!!! SO SO happy for you 😀 😀 😀 Hope the bad symptoms go away, and looking forward to super updates!!

  • WillJogForFood

    Congrats Jenn! I’m 34 weeks along myself, and so happy you have a bun in the oven too 😉

  • Very big congrats!!

  • I’m so happy for you! I think the best part about this whole thing is that Paul was there right beside you. I’m so, so sorry you’ve been so sick, but it will definitely be worth it the moment y’all have your baby bean in your arms! Congrats again! XOXO

  • Congratulations! I am so excited for you!

  • Yayyyyyyy!! Congratulations to you! I’m so excited for you!! I’m also expecting, but I’m due in 6 more weeks! Eek! Time goes by SO quickly. Enjoy every moment! If you need to talk about anything pregnancy-related, feel free to email me anytime!! 🙂

  • Huuuuge congrats! You’re going to have so much fun! 🙂 I had the ickyness too, but’s it’s all worth it in the end. Pinky promise!

  • congrats girl! so happy for you!

  • Andrea B @ Vegvacious

    Congratulations Jenn! What amazing news!!!

    🙂 I was starting to wonder when you were a sickie for so long.

  • Wahooo congrats Jenn – that’s so exciting 😀 You’re absolutely adorable and I can’t imagine how precious your baby is going to be! Sending many warm wishes to you and your family!

  • Farrah @ Fairy healthy life

    Congratulations!!! Both of my pregnancies were horrible. Morning sickness throughout. Not fun. I hope yours doesn’t last that long.

  • Tys

    Yes, other moms get suspicious quickly! Was hoping that was your news! Big congrats!!!

  • YAY!!!!!! Huge congratulations!!!!! My first pregnancy was horrid with morning sickness, if I remember correctly, I finally felt better around the 18 week mark. Fingers crossed this part leaves you soon!

    Jen@HealthyFoodandFamily

  • Oh congratulations!!!! I wondered why you didn’t hear from you as much, but I just thought you needed a bit more space and life. 🙂 So glad to hear it’s even better news and you’re expecting!

  • Totally late reading the news, but so excited for you, girl! xoxo

  • Totally awesome Jen,,,, being a mommy sure is rad!

    So glad you finally have a bun in the oven, hehe.

    Your baby is going to be one healthy little pea, can hardly see all the ways you’ll be feeding that kiddo his fruits and veggies:)

    Hope you feel better and can stomach more than bagels soon!!!

    Hugs, Bella 🙂
    Bella’s 40 Day Challenge

  • That’s so awesome and exciting!! I was wondering when I kept reading post after post about how you ate a ton of carbs! LOL! That’s not the Jenn we were used too, but I’m glad that you were finally able to share the big news with us! I hope you get to feeling better! 🙂 CONGRATS!

  • does this mean you’ll be two peas in a crayon now? LOL. i don’t know, i’m silly.

    love YOU!

  • Ahh Jenn Congratulations! I have been following your blog regularly for the last 10 months or so and I have grown to love your quirky personality and your awesome love for veges, balance and your hubby! I feel genuinely happy for your your family and your ‘little pea’… can’t wait to hear all about your life with the new addition.

  • Jenn, congratulations!! 😀 Wow, I so didn’t see that coming. Lol. Guess it just goes to show I’m easy when it comes to being surprised. ;)I’m really glad to know that all this sickness and zombiness actually has a really awesome silver lining! 😀

  • crazybullies

    congrats!!!!!! yay! I hope you that morning sickness goes away though, i’ve heard its really no fun.

  • Congratulations Jenn! I’m glad to hear you’re not actually dying – and this is super exciting news! 🙂

  • Congratulations! So exciting! As a woman who’s been pregnant A LOT, I feel your pain girl! Hang in there! Hoping that you can find more to eat than some bagels real soon. Happy dance for you!

  • Congratulations! That is so exciting 🙂 I think bagels could bring anyone out of zombieland… seriously

  • I throw up for 18-20 weeks 24 hours a day while pregnant and nothing, absolutely nothing, helps! Which is my only reservation about trying for a 3rd baby right now, I’m not ready to feel like I’m on the brink of death again just quite yet! Although since my husband just got home from deployment, im thinking a deployment baby may be in our near future, hopefully :). Congrats and you’ll feel better soon. Its totally worth it or else i’m crazy for wanting to do it a 3rd time!

    • ahhhhh oh no – you too!? It’s less than fun that’s for sure but it gives me hope if you and a few of my close friends keep toughing it out over and over again that it must be worth it! =) Good luck on deciding when to have baby numero tres! You’ll have to keep me posted! <3

  • Congrats! Parenthood is oh such a beautiful thing and you’ll be one cool mom 🙂

  • Yay, Jenn! What happy news! Congratulations to you and Paul!

  • I’m dancing for you!! I’m so so excited to hear. A million congratulations to you and the other Paul. 🙂 (Meaning not mine. Hope that didn’t get too confusing there. Haha.)

  • Congratulations, wohooo! It is such a blessing how much life and joy we bloggers can share with each other. I cannot wait for miniature you popping out in August and breathing new life into peas and crayons!

  • I freaking knew it! 🙂 I was going to ask you but i didn’t want to oust you in your comments section in the blog. Congratulations and I hope you begin to feel like a person again soon. BRAAAAAAAAINS.

  • Congratulations!!

  • OMG! I am SO SO SO SO SO (can I add a few more SO’s in there?) happy for you! CONGRATS!

    I had noticed you were sick for a while and there seems to have been a baby boom in the blog world lately, so I’ve been wondering if you were in fact pregnant. I was right! 😉

    And August 11th is a fabulous day for little J (or P) to arrive. Just throwing it out there 😉

    • eeeeee thanks Sabrina!!!! I’ll see if the little vampire wants to cooperate in August, I have a feeling he/she is a bit of a rebel! lol

  • YAY! You spilled the beans! (Or spilled the peas??) I have been thinking about you lots and hoping that you are feeling better. I’m sorry to hear that the morning sickness still hasn’t passed. I hope you feel better soon! I’m so super duper happy for you! <3 <3 <3

    • lol yes I suppose I did spill the peas. and the crayons. and my cookies. =) I loved our chat the other day and thank you so so much for the support darling! xo

  • Congrats Jenn!!!!!! I didn’t see this coming at all, but couldn’t be happier for you and your family!!

  • WOOOOOOOOO SO crazy happy for you!!!!

  • Congratulations!!! Very happy for you guys 🙂 I hope you feel better soon! I’m currently 36 weeks pregnant and it has not always been a smooth ride either. I normally love food (healthy food at that), but pregnancy put a spin on that! All I have wanted at times (if anything) are muffins, bagels and cereal! Go figure. I hope you feel better soon. Remember to drink lots of water – that is key! BTW – my freezer is stocked full with some of your lovely recipes for after the baby comes so thank you 🙂

    • eeeee thank you!!!! Congrats on 36 weeks! I promise to stay hydrated and I’m so excited you made a bunch of the recipes! I’m starting to contemplate a deep freezer so I can do the same! <3

  • Congratulations! So excited for you!!!

  • Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I’m so excited for you! Congratulations! <3

  • Squeeeee!!! Congrats! I’m sorry about the plague, but I’m soooo happy for you and your fam.

  • !!!! Omigosh! Congratulations, love! I totally didn’t see this one coming, but I’m super happy for you! Err… well… not super happy that you’re not feeling all that great, but the little bundle will be more than worth it. Squee! Congrats again!!

    • Haha really!? Yeah I’m with ya on being excited for the baby and less than thrilled about the hyperemesis! Thanks Amanda! <3

  • I KNEW it! 🙂 Yay!!! Congrats girl! So excited for you!

  • Omigod yes! Congrats! I knew something was fishy due to the lack of veggies on this super green blog. I really hope the little one decides to stop making you feel like death sometime soon.
    BTW – nyc, best place to be in bagel love. You should totally treat yourself to a visit when you feel up to it!

    • Thank you Thank you! Girl if I could fund a trip to NYC right now I’d go in a heartbeat, clutching my air sickness bag all the way! lol

  • Awwww, congrats to you and P! I’m so happy for you both, how exciting, it’s going to be the cutest little pea ever! xoxo

  • Woohoo! Congratulations!!!

  • YAY!!! COngratulations! I am so happy for you & Paul!

  • I knew it!! I was getting suspicious lol. Congratulations!!!

  • I give this baby another 10 mins before I give it another nickname. <3 you, and the tiny alien-parasite-womb creature.

    • I called it gut-puncher earlier. The kid will have no less than 10000 nicknames by birth and many more after. Thx betch

  • Congratulations! I love your method for spreading the good news. Leave it to a kid to actually do what they’re supposed to do the one time you don’t want them to! Typical 🙂

  • Ah I’m soo excited for you guys!! I’m having flashbacks to when you were the very first person that I told I was pregnant because I had no energy to blog! Does that mean we can get some vegetarian baby recipes? 🙂

    • haha awww I was just thinking of that too! I need your # again so we can text! and heck yes vegetarian baby recipes! I’ve got a little way to go before this monster is unleashed though!

  • I knew it as soon as I read the title of the post! Huge congratulations to you and your hubs!!

  • Congrats!! I’m so impressed you kept blogging about food! Seriously, I could barely read your blog during my first trimester. Sooo many food aversions. Anywho, congrats again mama!

    • Thanks Elisa =) I cut my blogging down so much I was certain everyone was going to forget about me. As it is I miss my kitchen so so much!

  • OMG!!!! How did I now guess that when you were so sick?! Congratulations!!!

    I’m sorry you’re so ill… but that’s obviously because you are royalty like Kate middleton. 😉

    • Dude I SO thought you had figured it out already! Ohmygosh is Kate still sick? I can feel her pain.. its no bueno having hyperemesis

  • Congrats : )

  • Congrats!! So exciting 🙂

  • Congrats Jenn and Paul!

  • Yay! So excited for you.

  • Congratulations!! You two are going to have such a beautiful baby. I’m so happy for you guys!

  • Congrats!!!!!!! xoxox

  • Congrats! I am thrilled to hear it, but hate hearing you have been so sick! I hope that goes away super fast! Very happy for you guys!

  • Ahh, congrats! What amazing news!

  • CONGRATULATIONS! That’s amazing. I’m so happy for you. Post a pic of the bump soon? 😀

  • Yay!! Congrats Jen! I am so excited for you 🙂 Looking forward to the many updates of your little clementine

  • Congratulations! August babies are the best! 😉
    Hope food gets nicer to you soon! My August-baby had me sick for 20weeks and then suddenly I felt better and could really enjoy being pregnant! Yay!
    Looking forward to your happy updates on the little one! ♥

  • I called it first! The first time you mentioned “plague” I thought, she’s totally with child. Then the mention of carbs later on and I was 100% positive. I was even thinking this same EXACT thought yesterday, ” Hmmm, Jenn mentioned plague before Christmas so she’s probably close to her 2nd trimester about now. Wonder when she’ll spill the beans? Or maybe she’ll just pop it out and be like *surprise*.”
    Congrats!!! Babies are awesome and I’m sure he/she/it will be gorgeous!

  • Congrats that is very exciting!

  • YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • AHHH! Jenn!! Congrats to you and P! 🙂 You two are ridic adorbs and will make beautiful, ridic adorbs babies! And you will, of course, be a super mom with healthy eats and be even more super! So so happy for you both! <3

  • Ahhhh I knew it but I was waiting for you to tell us all 🙂 congrats my friend, I’m so happy you are finally feeling better!

  • Congrats, what lovely news!

  • Huge congratulations! So excited and happy for you!
