peanut update

Ain't she pretty?



All major organs formed, down to the teeth and fingerprints. We're at nine weeks today. After a rough first week after my positive test, I felt great. So good I thought something must be wrong and was afraid I would miscarry. But since returning from vacation...well, I feel good and pregnant now. Very nauseous, very tired. We found a midwife and I'll be calling on Monday to schedule my first official visit. I'm very sleepy right now and just waiting for John to finish reading to the boys so I can sing to them and go crash into bed, so I don't feel like I'm writing very coherently. Hopefully I'll have something intelligent to write another day. :)

Beautiful baby! Dry cooked noodles and boiled potatoes helped my nausea oh so many years ago. Hang in there Mama!

heehee....
I really have no preference. John says he would like a girl. Kain of course wants a boy, can't ever have too much testosterone for him. Maria goes back and forth. She wants a girl...but she's not so sure she wants to share her room. :) I have a feeling it's a girl. With the past two, I've gotten more attached to a certain name, and so far I've had a baby the sex of the name I've really liked. This time I really like the girl's name we've picked out, whereas we're still waivering on the boys name. We'll see!

Congratulations!!!!

Now, about that "dry cooked noodles and baked potatoes", do they have to be plain? Whatever happened to Vlassic pickles with Ben & Jerry's? Now that I can brave. But that other boiled stuff is making ME nauseous! LOL!

Best of luck and God bless,
Tom

I'm so glad all is well and that you are feeling "good and pregnant" again! I was so worried about you!
