8 weeks or so...

I am 8 weeks or so now. This picture was taken a week ago at 7 weeks. And I'm already showing. Crazy huh? And so not fair! I just hate moving into those maternity clothes and leaving my closet behind. Because I was (and am) feeling so sick, the doctor on Wednesday did an ultrasound to make sure there was only one in there (I wasn't so sick feeling with my other two kids). Rest assured, there is only one with a big strong heartbeat. The doc prescribed Zofran so I can get back to the land of the living. It only seems to work about 50% of the time and then only for the first 2 to 3 hours after taking it. But I have to wait 8 hours for another dose. Maybe a black shirt would have worked much better for this picture, but that would have involved finding one in the massive piles of laundry on my floor. See those deep circles under my eyes.....I was so not in the mood.I popped out very quickly with Ainsley too, but luckily I slowed down to normal size after about 4 months. Here is a picture of me a week before she is due and one hour before my scheduled c-section with her. See! Normal size. So I'm not too worried. I feel humongous, but don't look it too much. The main problem with feeling sick is the state of my house. After about 3pm, I feel like I can't cope and spend the rest of the day on the couch or in bed. Making dinner is pure torture. Poor poor Tone. He comes home from being gone for a few days to find a messy (OK, disastrous) house and no dinner and the kids going crazy. He said I needed to ORDER the doctor to give me something. Haha. Just one more month....just one more month of this.....I hope.

  4. You should know how upset I am that you're coming when I'll be gone. I want to see your bump. My magic touch would probably take the illness way. Just sayin.
