Sick of Being Sick

This morning was not very much fun. As soon as I woke up, I got sick. Not so much fun. I have been doing a lot of searching for bedroom furniture for the nursery. I found a really great set on craigslist that seems to be a really good deal. I think Mom and Dad might go take a look at it for me today or tomorrow. It is out in Lake Nona, which is near Orlando. Please pray that my morning sickness will suddenly disappear so that I can get back to feeling like a normal person again. Well, as normal as a pregnant lady can feel.

On a happier note, I made banana bread last night for the first time. I am so proud! My mom's banana bread has always been a favorite of mine and I never knew how easy it was to make! I used a different recipe, but I am sure it is similar to hers. It was so delicious. I wish you could taste it, but this picture will have to do. Try not to drool all over your keyboard.

Ideas for Baby Room

I know we still have a lot of time, but I would rather be prepared than caught off guard. As of today, I am in love with an owl theme for the baby's room. Check out my inspirations below:

I am really in love with this idea. The only question is to paint, or buy decals? I am no fantastic artist. I think we could probably paint the tree without a problem. I would then just have to buy owl decals. I am thinking the tree would go over the changing table and have one branch coming out of the wall that would be above the crib. Lots to think about. I am going to try to see how many DIY projects I can come up with for owls before I go spending a whole bunch of $$ that we don't have.

Baby Bean!

Got to see the bean today! Our little one was so active, bouncing up and down like crazy! The tech asked what I ate this morning because he sure liked it! Well, I guess our bean is a fan Chick Fil A. They said everything looks healthy and I will have another appointment at 16 weeks. We can opt to do a 4D sono to find out the sex, but we will have to pay extra. We may just wait until 20 weeks and find out for free. Either way, we are so blessed and so excited.

12!!! End of 1st Trimester...are you Serious!?

I can hardly believe it! It has been 3 months already? I am a little scared when I think about the incredible amount of stuff we have to do. I still haven't even announced the news to everyone! I am trying to rest in the Lord and know that He has us in the palm of His hand. Please pray that we find the right path we are supposed to be on. I don't want to worry, but it is hard not to be a little overwhelmed with everything. I have a SONO appointment tomorrow and will be posting the picture so stay tuned!

11 weeks and counting

It feels like 11 weeks is so much further along than 8 weeks! I think I am going to be amazed at how time flies over the next 7 months. I told my sweet best friends the news yesterday. Both were excited and can't wait to be 'Aunties.' I told my co-workers the news today. We have a morning meeting everyday and that is when I told them. They all clapped. HAHA. They were very excited. Supposedly some of them were 'suspecting.' They have been wondering why I have been munching on saltines and oyster crackers. I have been on A LOT lately. I have been reading specifically about cloth diapers. I am seriously considering doing this. It seems so much more economical. You can reuse them and even use them for a second child. Trent wasn't super excited about the idea, but he hasn't been doing any research. They are adorable too!! It's like the diaper becomes a fashion statement. Maybe that is why I like them. Man! If only I knew how to sew. I could make these puppies myself. Women are making some serious cash of these hot commodities.

Home Sweet Home

We got back from Illinois yesterday. We got to tell Trina our news in person. She was so happy for us. I really wish we lived closer so that the full experience could be shared. She wants me to take monthly pictures of my belly. HA. She will probably be the only one I will let see those! She is going to be a wonderful Aunt. Our trip was anything but uneventful. Trina threw a surpise birthday party for her boyfriend, Ryan. It was kind of hectic getting all of that together. On Sunday, Deb had to have emergency gallbladder surgery. It had to be removed bofore it burst! Praise the Lord the surgery went well and she is now at home recovering. It was wonderful to see everyone and to stay in the house Trent grew up in one last time.

Morning sickness is in full swing. I have thrown up the past 3 mornings in a row. (Sorry if that is TMI) I think if it happens again tomorrow I will call my doctor for some Zofran. I will fill the prescription and probably only take if absolutely necessary. I was planning on telling my boss today, but he was off! One of my event managers goes on vacation tomorrow, so I guess I will have to wait to tell her when she gets back on Monday. I am slowly telling everyone else. I think one phone call a day is all I can handle. Trent told me I should host a webinar to tell everyone at once...not a bad idea.

I felt great!....for about 2 hours.

My nausea has been really quite terrible. I didn't go to sleep until 3:30 Monday morning because it was so bad. I bought sea-bands which really seem to work amazingly well. I went to put them on today at work, but one is missing! You have to wear a band on each wrist in order for them to be effective. I am so bummed that I lost one. At $11.99 they were not cheap, so I really hate to buy another pair. I am praying that it dropped out of my purse at home or in my car. I also bought ginger gum which has really seemed to help. It is such a terrible feeling knowing that I need to eat and not being able to swallow anything without gagging.

Mom, Dad, David and Linzy came to Tampa last night to eat at TJ's restaurant, Pelagia. It was a birthday celebration for mom/congratulations to me. It was really good to see my mom and dad. I haven't seen them since around the end of January! I felt really great at dinner. I actually ate a whole bowl of ravioli, bread, some salad and a few appetizers. It was parobably the most I have eaten in one sitting since I ate a California Roll over the weekend. I felt great during dinner but then was back to feeling terrible again by the time I got home and started getting into bed. This morning I have felt very crummy. I wish I had my other sea-band!

Rabbit Rabbit Grandma!

This is no April Fool's joke! I caved. I decided to tell my family this morning. It is mom's birthday and so I knew this would be a special day to tell her the news. Many of you may know that my mom and I have been saying 'Rabbit Rabbit' to each other on the first day of the month since I was old enough to talk. It is a game she played with one of her best friends when she was little and it just got passed on to me. On the first day of every month, the goal is to be the first person to say, 'Rabbit Rabbit.' Several of my friends have been drawn into the game through the years and now it is just sort of tradition. I called mom this morning and we both said "Rabbit Rabbit!" at the same time. (she thinks she won) My Rabbit Rabbit had a 'grandma' attached to the end. She didn't quite get it at first. I had to go on to say, "This time next year, I will have to buy you a happy birthday grandma card." Finally I hear, "Are you serious??" I then got to tell my brother and then my dad. I guess it is pretty heavy news because all 3 kind of had to digest what I just told them. My mom woke my dad out of a sound sleep. He will probably go back to sleep and wake up and think it was a dream. Everyone seemed excited and I can't wait to see them in person for hugs.
