9 weeks today! Transformers 2?

3 more weeks and I'll be in my second trimester. I can relax a little bit more. Hopefully I'll get my energy back and be able to eat without gagging. I've had a few moments the last few days were I've felt semi-normal. I hope that's my body getting used to the hormones and preparation for 2nd trimester. We'll see!
In other news... Marvin and I went to see Transformers 2 with his brothers and another couple. We were all looking forward to it. We were all very impressed with the amazing special effects.... Unfortunately we were all turned off to the vulgar humor and smutty language. What a shame! It is definetly not a family movie. We will not be adding it to our DVD collection. I should have researched this movie before seeing it. I use a website called plugged in. They give an overview on, positive elements, spiritual elements, sexual content, and profanity. If you haven't seen Transformers 2 yet, please research it before you make a decision to go or not. Here's a link to the site I use...

January 30th, 2010!!!!!

I just got home from my 1st OB visit. He put my official due date at January 30th, 2010 (you got your wish Alana). I'm so excited!
I told him that my eyesight has been getting kind of blurry when I read subtitles on the TV. He said it's only going to get worse. =) He told me to get a new prescription 6 months after the baby is born.
I asked him if I needed another ultrasound. He said everything looks really good. I won't need one for now.
I go back on July 23rd. I'll be 12 weeks then. He said we should be able to hear the heartbeat then, but don't freak out if we don't. He'll get an ultrasound if we don't hear it. But he's pretty sure we'll hear it.
They took a bunch of blood for the regular blood tests and that was it.
I'm still super sick and tired. Everything is still looking really good.

5 minutes at a time....

I am taking it 5 minutes at a time. I find it very hard to get things done lately. I'm so sick all day long and SOOOOOO tired. I have huge dark circles under my eyes, they look like black eyes. Yuck! But it is all worth it!
I haven't had the desire or the stomach to cook anything. Before the all day sickness I would cook a nice fresh healthy meal 4 times a week. Now... maybe once. I went to the store today and bought a lot of frozen meals. I wanted to make sure I had something to give Marvin when I'm having a tough time.
I try to eat at least one huge salad everyday. With like 5 serving of veggies... huge! It totally turns my stomach, but I eat it for my health and the baby's. I wash all the veggies when I first get them, that way all I have to do is quickly throw everything in a bowl and eat it before I can gag.
I sleep like 10 hours a night. A lot of nights I've been tossing and turning, so it's not a sound sleep. Marvin said I've recently started to talk in my sleep. It might have to do with the extremely strange things I've been dreaming about. My dreams are so bizarre. They aren't scary or related to babies in any way... just very peculiar. I should try to write them down when I first wake up. I always forget. I'll try tomorrow morning.
I'm so grateful Marvin works so hard so I can stay home. I know I would be fine if I had to work while I was pregnant, but I'm glad I can rest. Many women have told me, rest all you can, because the next pregnancy you won't be able to rest at all.
My Mom gave me great advice. She told me to take situations 5 minutes at a time. Like unloading the dishwasher or getting some laundry done. It works.
Speaking of laundry, I better get the whites out of the dryer. 5 minutes....... I can do it! =)

We are pregnant again! =)

We are pregnant again! This is an ultrasound we had 2 weeks ago (when I was 5w 6d). You can see the baby on the right side of the gestational sac. I saw and heard the heartbeat. It was amazing! We feel better about this pregnancy... mostly because I have been so sick! Much more sick then the last one. My hcg levels are super high and we've already heard the heartbeat. We are being very positive, but still cautious. So far so good. We will keep our blog updated on my progress. We have a feeling this one is going to stick around, and we still are praying very diligently that the Lord's will be done. =) We are due January 31st, 2010, unless they change the due date. I'll be 8 weeks on Saturday. I'll be a little more relaxed in 4 weeks. Here's to a Healthy and Happy pregnancy! 7 more months to go! =)
