Pregnancy Update

It is amazing how a person can forget the difficulties of being pregnant. What sort of crazy hormone can wipe your memory that way? You would think vomiting for 3 months would stick with a person. I finally got some relief, the nurse practitioner prescribed me Reglan for the all day barfathon. I has been working pretty well. I forgot to take it Sunday night before bed, then made the mistake Monday morning of talking about making a turkey sandwich for my lunch. The dry heaving began mid-sentence. So I took a bagel, and remember to take the meds.

I am amazed how much more I can get done in a day when I am not clutching the toilet. I have managed to get my grading caught up! That in itself is a miracle. I no longer choose my meals based on what is easiest to throw up. It's like a whole new world.

We have another ultrasound on Friday, so we should get some more news on how this baby is doing. I am totally freaked out. I keep telling the baby I would like to feel a few little kicks, just to reassure me that we will not hear on Friday that we have lost this one as well. My MIL is a labor and delivery nurse, and all her OB friends said it would be unusual for their to be a problem with this baby, but I can't help it. Bud is always the voice of reason and pointed out we aren't praying for a miracle, but just average. We can totally do average, it is where we excel.

We should also be able to find out if we are having a boy or girl since I will be 17 week. It doesn't matter to me either way, but I do still have all of Maddie's clothes. Although I am sure my mom is more than willing to buy more stuff. I keep seeing cute summer baby stuff on clearance, once I know what the baby is the buying can begin. My sister in law is due in March and they chose to not find out the sex of the baby. I can't comprehend that. But they went through IVF so they felt like they wanted some sort of surprise, since the pregnancy was pretty well planned out.

And here is a picture of girl who will imitate anything her brother does:

I can't wait to find out! I like to shop the clearance racks, too!

Swistle- clearance shopping is my favorite. I love to tell Bud the original price and make him guess what I paid. He hates this game. I am using your organization method with the diaper boxes for upcoming season. Works great.
