Wiggle Worm

I had to go to the Doctor today for a follow up since I have been so sick the whole 1st trimester.  Looks like I am getting better and I may be out of the woods soon...or at least see the clearing up ahead.

Here is our little Wiggle worm...

I couldn't believe how busy she/he was!  I just hope that she/he gives mommy a rest when she gets big enough for me to feel all that movement.

Ad nauseam

Ad nauseam is a Latin term used to describe something unpleasurable which has continued "to [the point of] nausea".[1][2] For example, the sentence, "I have been so nauseous during this pregnancy...it has been to the point of ad nauseam."  At least I think I used it correctly. LOL!

Lets see...we found out I was pregnant about 10 weeks ago or so and I think I have been sick for...lets see...yea...about 10 weeks!!  Ugg...it has been pretty awful and I have felt like the being burden to Eric but he has been wonderful and has tried his best not to complain too much.

I have felt a little bit better the past few days and I am nearing the elusive 12 week mark that should end all the 1st trimester sickness, but I don't want to hold my breath.  I was not even close to being this sick with Gabe...so I don't know what to expect.  I have had to go in to the Hospital twice for dehydration and malnutrition because it was so bad...however yesterday and today I have managed to eat pretty well AND keep it all down.  Hoping all continues this way...

I have a follow up tomorrow with Dr. Banks.  He wants to make sure that I am getting enough to eat and staying hydrated.  Next week is the big 12 week appointment where we should get another ultrasound (at least we did with Gabe) and I will have a bunch of blood taken for all the genetic tests.

Hello Baby!

video
Marshall Baby #2 due in April of 2013

We are super excited to add another family member.  Eric really would like a girl...I would also love a little girl to dress up, but part of me keeps saying, "but we already have all this boy stuff."  Without trying to sound too much like a cliche we will be happy as long as the baby is healthy, happy, and doesn't cry all night!

We still haven't gone "Facebook Official" with our announcement, but I am pretty sure that everyone already knows by word of mouth...more specifically my father. :o)  He is so excited I think he stops complete strangers just so he can share the news again.

We are incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful family on both sides.  I don't know what I did in a previous life to deserve such love and support, but I am so grateful to have such wonderful parents and in-laws.  I love you guys very much.
