So sad that I've already dropped the ball with the very first one!!
I had planned to post this update last week, but here it is . . . better late than never!
From the moment I get out of bed in the mornings til I go to bed at night, I am nauseous. Yes, ALL DAY.
I try to eat small meals throughout the day. I feel sick before I eat, so I know I better eat; then, I feel worse after I eat.
Food is just not my friend these days.
It won't digest. I throw up most of it. There's only a limited amount of things that I can tolerate. NOT FUN.
I'm also pretty tired. It's hard to get through the school day, then come home to cook, clean, help with homework, get the boys to & from extra-curriculars, run errands, oversee bedtime, & so on.
I take a nap every single day. And there are many nights when I'm in bed before my children!
It's also tough not to have my parenting partner (aka my hubby) here full time.
Last week was glorious because he was here on spring break & so helpful.
Sadly, I've lost him again. This time to good ole recruiting. :(
I'm hoping that the nausea & fatigue will get better (dare I say stop altogether?!) as this 1st trimester slowly comes to an end . . . PRAY!!! :)
At my last appointment, we had another ultrasound. Tim got to be there to see everything, which was so nice.
My measurements were spot on, development looked great, & genetic tests came back normal.
The nurse could hardly get the heartbeat (which was in the 160s) because this wild child wouldn't be still (I've already experienced that 2x before . . . should I be afraid?!!).
There was also lots of hand movement - 1st we saw "waving" & then it looked like the hand was on the forehead, to which the nurse replied, "DRAMA!!" Oh goodness!!
The boys, especially Tanner, are in HOG HEAVEN.
He asks constantly, "What's the baby doing?" Seriously, he keeps a check on this baby ALL DAY!
I told him that the baby can hear our voices & gets excited when they talk to my belly.
So now, he comes over to my belly all of the time & whispers "Hey baby!" & then asks if the baby is jumping & happy!! It's just the sweetest thing.
