I'm glad you're not feeling well... only because you're pregnant!!! I'm still so thrilled for you and can't wait to hear all your updates!
Tammy!!!!! Hey girlie...thanks ! Yeah being sick is really hard for me....It drives me crazy not being able to do much.

I know you want to eat healthy but honestly getting through the first triemester is the most important thing so do what you gotta do to make it through. I lived off of Sierra Mist and carbs because I couldn't handle many fruits and veggie or much of anything else for that matter. I couldn't even handle water, that made me so sick. I would just sip on it throughout the day so I would still get some (I am normally a huge water drinker too so this sucked for me).

Yay for seeing the something on the u/s, good luck at the next appt.
Hey Dawn!! I have been taking the Zofran once a day in the morning and I feel so bad about doing it...but it is the only way I can go to work. It has gotten to the point where I cannot even drink water...which is hard for me too.

Dannee....I would have probably thought the same thing about water. Yeah, greasy is all I want...french fries and pizza. Luckily I can’t eat a lot or I would gain 50 pounds during the 1st trimester.

I love that you and Tonya and preggo together. We were preggo together as well
I love seeing all your signs and I can't wait for your next scan and you get to see and hear the heart beat. It is a sound you will never forget.
Thanks Becks!!! I know as long as I am sick the baby is great...I started laughing while I was throwing up the other day...thinking it must be a boy.

Are you getting excited about telling your mom about the baby yet (July 18, right?)
Have you told anyone besides your husband yet?
Hope that the Zofran works and that the classes go by quickly...my main problem is that I dont feel sick during the first trimester, I just feel like eating - EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!!
HUGS!!
Hey Tonya!! We are super excited about telling my mom and dad....I cannot wait...I will film it when we go next weekend. Some of my workers asked me on Friday if I was preggo...they said I have been acting different...not as much energy...I couldn’t lie and said yeah. Well within a few minutes I had text messages from people at work...apparently someone posted it on their fb page and the whole staff knew in minutes.

Hey Jacky!! Thanks...I couldn’t make it without Zofran...it is a lifesaver for me.

Thanks Jenny!!!! It was a total shock for me and it still seems so unreal sometimes.

Sorry I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve been so tired and sick all the time…but I’ve been loving it
Let’s see what has happened this week….I told work…well sorta…someone at work asked me if I was preggo b/c I wasn’t acting like my normal self…I said yes and then one of the teachers sitting at the table with us posted it on fb. So now my work knows I wanted to wait until my appointment on Monday but oh well…what is done is done.

I am only craving French fries and pizza…the good news is I can’t eat a lot b/c it makes me sick to fill my stomach too full. Water is gross and it is really hard to get it down. I am going to the store this evening to see what I can find. I hate sports drinks and I have never been a fan of fruit juices….so I will walk down the aisle and see what doesn’t make me feel sick thinking about drinking it .
I think the Zofran and lack of water is making me totally constipated. I am a very regular usually and going a few days is making me feel worse I think. I have tried some of the stool softeners my doctor recommended but nothing is working…so I really have to find a liquid I can drink.

We will be telling our families this coming weekend I changed the way I am going to tell my family. My mom’s b-day is this weekend and I am going to give her a Pandora like keychain….you can put Pandora beads on it….and I ordered beads that represented the birthstone of my dad, brother, sister-in-law, DH and myself. I will put all the beads on the keychain and give it to her and explain the beads. Then DH will say, “Honey, you forgot to give her the card” inside the card I will tape a purple bead and write "this is February’s birthstone"…and see if she catches on. Scott doesn’t want to do anything for his family other than tell them…his mom is probably going to be happy but not really excited…nothing really gets here excited.

I have an appointment on Monday…super excited to hear the heartbeat!!!!! Scott is a little pissed b/c he cannot go now….his boss called a mandatory staff meeting at 1 and my appointment is at 2. I will record everything on my phone….but I really wish he could be there.

I took my 7 week picture yesterday…I will post it later…I am going to head to the store while I am feeling okay.

Almost forgot to add: we now have a nickname for our little one....Squirt....Finding Nemo was our first movie together when we started dating. Scott bought me a little Squirt stuffed animal

Hey ladies! My computer crashed and using my ipad to post is a pain. Anyhow...I had a great visit on Monday. It was the most amazing thing ever....I got to see and hear the most beautiful thing...our baby's heartbeat it was 149.



I filmed the whole thing for DH...he was bummed he couldn't be there...but loved the video.

I had to go to the doc on Friday....on Thursday I had some yucky yellow discharge that freaked me out....my doc did a culture to see if it is an infection....I should know Monday morning.

Unfortunately we didn't make it to houston this weekend to tell family....my mom had to take care of my grandma who has been sick....she is doing better but I know my mom was tired and we will try next weekend....which is okay for me...because I have been super sick the last few days and I've been throwing up most of the day today.

I forgot to take a pic yesterday so I will take one tonight....I cannot believe it is over 8 weeks...at first time seemed to drag...but now it seems faster...weird I know.

This coming week is my last week of summer school and class...no more class until the last week of August.

I will post stats later...starting to feeling icky again

Just stopping by to check in on you. I can't believe you are 8 weeks already. So sorry you are feeling icky again, I hope that passes soon.

I'm sure it's hard keeping it from your mom, but I'm sure the extra week will be so worth the wait after you see her reaction!!

P.S. Your bean is so cute!! Yay for a heartbeat!! Isn't that the BEST sound ever!!

Thanks ladies!!! Y’all are amazing!

Well I am able to eat more I can eat brown rice, toast, and I have been able to eat ice for my water. I had DH go to Sonic and buy 4 large cups of ice...he is so cute!

July 24, 2013
  • Weight: 127
  • Waist: I lost my measuring tape
  • Mood: pretty good the last two days….It is really sinking in…I bought a book of prayers that is really helping me through the nervous and sick times.
  • Energy: energy is still super low…but I have bursts sometimes and I feel great and clean the house up a bit…and then I crash for a couple hours
  • Appetite: I have been able to keep brown rice and toast down. I have also been eating ice to get my water in….
  • Cravings: none
  • Morning sickness: Morning sickness…yeah right try all day sickness…it hits me out of nowhere…I will be feeling fine then all the sudden I’m running to the trashcan or bathroom. It seems to be a little worse between 3 – 7 lately
  • Symptoms: nauseous, tired, constipated, vomiting, my boobs are getting bigger…they feel super heavy, up until now my face has been pretty clear…but today I noticed I’m starting to break out a little.
I almost spilled the beans the other day while I was talking to my mom….I was telling her that DH was working out…then I said “yeah he will be losing weight and I will be”….almost said gaining weight but I stopped myself and said “eating healthier” way too close…
If we don’t get to see them this weekend I will have to tell her over the phone…I really want to share this news with her…she has wanted to be a grandma for soooooooooo long and her and my dad have been under a lot of stress lately taking care of my grandparents and running a business. They need some good news.

I totally forgot to take a photo at 8 weeks…I will take one tomorrow for 9 weeks….I cannot wait to see what fruit my ticker will show tomorrow.
Okay, I am off to my last class for the summer!!!!!!
