Questions I've been hearing A LOT over the past year and a half:
"When are you Nathan going to have another baby?"
"Are you trying?" (My personal favorite.)
"Are you pregnant?"
"It's about time, don't you think?"
These questions don't offend me or anything - I just never really know what to say. Well, I have something to say now. Mostly a lot of whining. =)
In answer to your questions (in order)
1. When are we going to have another baby?
NOVEMBER 16th 2008!!!
2. Are we trying?
Um. See what I mean?? How do you answer this question???!
3. Am I pregnant?
4. It's about time...
Yes it is.
So!! Now for the details!! I am not very far along. We would normally wait another month before telling everyone but people are starting to notice me being weird and I just really want some sympathy! I'm 8 weeks and sicker than I've EVER been. EVER.
We've had our first ultrasound and if I was really cool I'd scan the picture. I'm not feeling very cool right now. =) Everything looked great with the baby! Right on schedule. Only one baby! I thought maybe I had two because my Dr. said my uterus was measuring big and because I've been so sick. If you remember, I started out with 2 on my first pregnancy.
Haha! Sorry - couldn't resist. =)
Anyway - for the past 3 weeks things have just gotten worse and worse. The first couple weeks I was just EXTREMELY nauseous 24-7 and dry heaving occasionally. Then, last weekend was actually pretty good! I was up and not feeling too bad so I thought things were looking up! Monday morning was great - Nathan and I went to Anika's parent-teacher conference and then to the ultrasound. After that we went to a burger place for lunch. That afternoon was the start of the week from HELL. I hardly got off the couch from Monday-Wednesday. I threw up everything I ate. On Thursday I got up to take Anika to school and pick her up and then it was back to the couch for me. I pretty much just stared at the wall or the TV. I haven't watched so much TV in a LONG time! I did go in to the Dr. and he gave me a vitamin B12 injection and things have been a little better yesterday and today.
I was never this sick with Anika or Kes. I think I threw up once or twice with them. I hardly ever had heartburn - I already do with this one. I'm bloated and emotional and tired. I'm not sure what's going on but I really hope I forget this experience or I won't be wanting to be pregnant again any time soon!
Nathan had spring break this past week. He got to spend it taking care of me and the girls. He has emptied my throw up bowl many times and has been so wonderful. I don't know what I would have done without him. The girls have been little angels. They play all day and fetch me things whenever I ask them to. They love to get me snacks and water and my bowl. =) It's so cute when Keslie asks me how I'm feeling. She usually says "Are you a little bit better mommy?" and Anika is so cheerful - I'll ask her to get me a drink and she says "SHORE!!" (sure). Her voice is so expressive. Nathan says she sounds like Dora. She has been saying "Come on! Vamanos!" a lot lately. =)
Anika got her kindergarten shots yesterday. 6 POKES!! Can you believe that?? Poor little thing! At least she's done until she's 11! She was so cute about it though. As we were walking in she said to the nurse "I'm here to get a pinch because I'm getting ready for kindergarten!!" It's all she can talk about! =)
Here are some little tidbits I had started to type last weekend:
My girls say such cute things all the live long day! Anika and Kes made some Binoculars today at a birthday party and Anika has been calling them cunoculars. =) Sometimes their words are SO much better than the real thing and so I just can't bring myself to correct them. A couple other things:Breftis for breakfast, I'n for I'm and now I'm totally blanking on the others.
Whenever someone (usually daddy) is doing something fun with Keslie - ie: throwing her across the room onto the couch, tossing her into the air, spinning her around, tickling her belly, etc - She immediately asks to do it again. She says "I want to do that EYE-gain!! We love the way she says it!
Anika walked in on Nathan while he was using the bathroom (he has since learned to LOCK the door!) and was taken aback by what she saw! She said "Daddy! You have a noodle hiney!!" Hahahaha!! Sorry if that was too much info but it was just too hilarious not to share!
Keslie fell off of the top bunk tonight. It freaked us out because she fell head first and landed on her head. I'm so glad she didn't get hurt too badly. She does have a pretty big bump on her noggin, though. =)
And that is the end of this boring post! Now hurry! Comment so that I have something to distract me from my misery! =)
