You have been growing in me for seven weeks now, and boy (or girl) can I tell! I’m much more tired then I used to be. Normally, your Dad and I would go to bed around midnight, but now I’ll be lucky if I make it to 10:30. And getting through the work day is an even larger struggle, by 2:00 pm I have droopy eyes and am dreaming of a nap. Although I haven’t gotten sick yet, I feel like I’m hung-over all day. I feel nauseous almost all day long and really don’t like to stand, so I sit or lay whenever possible, even for silly things like brushing my teeth or blow-drying my hair. It takes too much energy to stand and I usually feel like I’ll pass out. Most food sounds disgusting, except for greasy food like McDonalds MMMM! If it wasn’t so bad for us, I could eat it everyday! Although most food sounds gross, I’m hungry ALL the time! And if I eat every two hours or so, it helps with the nausea. So even though most foods sound nasty, I’m working hard to eat some healthy things everyday.
We haven’t told anyone you’re going to be around yet, but we want to make sure that you will be for sure. But let me tell you, it hasn’t been easy. We are so excited its hard not to tell people, especially your Grandma B! I want to surprise her and tell her of your arrival in a special way, lets hope I can make it! Your dad made me a promise that if I don’t say anything for 3 more weeks, he would start a special project for me for mother’s day, so I’m going to do my best. Let’s hope you inherit your dad’s genes of keeping secrets because I am certainly not very good at it.
That’s all for now! We love you very much and can’t wait to meet you!
