How many are in there?

Well, we had our 1st doctor's appt. yesterday. It took a little longer than 2hrs! We met with the accounting department, Lisa got stuck with a needle again (what a trooper), met with Dr. Holland, got lots of paperwork, waited alot, and had an ultrasound. Dr. Holland and his staff seem very nice. It's a little awkward having to explain our unique situation to everyone, but they'll catch on. LOL! The Doc said that everything looked great, and we are right on schedule. Our due date is November 3rd. During the us we saw this tiny little flutter. It was the heartbeat! We also got to hear it! So cool! I can't believe this is really happening. I got to see our little shrimp in there. 7 months can't get here fast enough! I am so excited for this journey. Thank you God, for sending me an angel named Lisa! Good stuff...

I'm feeling HOT, HOT, HOT... NOT!

So far things have been going great.  No real nausea, just a little queasy here and there, but by in large doing great!  That was until Tuesday morning, Mardi Gras!  We were getting ready to leave for the day of festivities and took my morning meds/vitamins (on an empty stomach, which I know better) as usual and as we were getting into the car, it hit me like a ton of bricks!  Mrs. Morning Sickness has officially snuck up on me!   Well I figured I would try and put her to bed and decided the next morning that I was going to make sure I ate something b/f taking my meds!  It worked! YAY!  Until yesterday morning!  I was running out the door to get the kids to school and I popped my meds in my mouth and out the door I went.  Arrived at school to attend a field trip with Hayden when she tried to sneak up on me again, well I shut her up with food!  Gottcha Again!  Or so I thought!  Everything was going smoothly, we made pizza's at our local pizza place.  I loaded my up with ham, pineapple and tons of bellpeppers!  Delicious!  We left the pizza place and I had to make a pit stop at the hospital for more blood work... which btw, she was brutal!  I have never had my blood drawn so aggressively.  Anyway, we made our way back to the house cause this pregnancy is taking every bit of energy out of me. So I needed a nap.  As I crawled into bed with Hayden, I drifted off to sleep only to be awakened by the most horrible pain in my back and upper abdomen!  It was killing me! I tried to doze back off but it was very painful!  It was GAS!  Stupid bellpeppers!  I had to go get Alexis from school and take her to the dermatologist but I was in severe pain.  After I picked her up I decided to stop at the drug store to get some GasX.  As we were sitting in the Dr. office, I was pacing!  Needless to say the GasX did not a dang thing!  Then all of a sudden Ms. Morning Sickness decided to say hello!  All I could do was run to the nearest bathroom!  They must have thought I was a crazy woman running through the halls of the office looking for a bathroom, probably as green as those bellpeppers I put on my pizza earlier!  Well lets just say I was so glad she stopped by, cause I felt such relief!  No more pain!  Thank you Mrs. Morning Sickness!  Nice to meet you!
