The morning sickness hit, and hit hard. I've been sick for three weeks now. Lots of throwing up, lots of "feeling yucky", lots of not eating anything but toast and crackers (i'm so sick of toast & crackers). Yesterday I reached the point of feeling "Okay, I'm so sick that I can't even be excited or enjoy this pregnancy so far." I'm ready for the sickness to go away so that I can pay attention to what matters most.

I should also say that even though my husband's job has kept him away from home quite a bit, and busy and stressed out. He's done amazing at trying to take care of me.

We found out today that lemon drops help a ton with the sick feeling. I'm on a couple different meds to help with how severe the sickness is. But the lemon drops seem to be doing the trick today. PRAISE THE LORD FOR THE BRACHS COMPANY FOR MAKING LEMON DROPS! And for my sweet husband for taking care of me when he can. :) He's cute.

St. Patricks Day! = Ultrasound!

We had our first ultrasound on St. Patricks Day! 8:45 a.m. was check in at NRMC. We were able to visibly see our baby, and hear it's beautiful heartbeat. God truely is the ultimate creator! The sound was the most amazing sound I have ever heard in my entire life. It gave me such peace (even though I cried - happy tears) to hear that little heartbeat and to know that this time around there is greater hope. :)

The ultrasound also showed that I was about 5 days farther along than what we thought. :) I'll be ten weeks this Friday!

Week 6

Today is the first day that I felt I needed to take crackers to work to snack on throughout the morning and then late in the afternoon. I'm hoping that this sick feeling stays pretty mild, that would be nice. Here's to the start of week 6!! :) So far so good, still praying!
