We had some very exciting news on Friday. I went to my second doctor's appointment, and we were able to hear the heartbeat. It was so incredible! I've known for a while that I was pregnant, but hearing another heart, really makes it real for you. And thankfully the other good news was that once you hear the heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage goes down to like 1 or 2%. So we're very excited! And thankfully the nausea has almost completely gone away. I very rarely feel sick in the mornings anymore. And that makes it so much easier to eat what I'm supposed to, when I'm supposed to.

Well, I've been really busy this week and haven't had any time to check my mail, or write in this journal. Thankfully Donny came home alright, but sadly, the night he did, my dog Jake died. So of course we took care of that, but with all this being busy, I haven't really had time to be sick at all. Normally when I get up in the morning, I don't feel well... but not this week at all. I'm still a little crampy off and on. But this has been a really great week pregnancy wise. So now that everyone knows far more than they ever needed or wanted to know, I'm going to go clean my bathroom. Because... well do you really need a reason?

Today is actually a pretty good day so far, but then, I've only been up for a half hour. Not sick, and actually thinking about food. That's a change for me. Lately, I feel like just not eating, and I know that's just not an option. I need to pick up, and do some laundry, but I think I'll make some pancakes first.. with applesauce. And hopefully I can brush my teeth today without any problems like I had yesterday.

Today is Saturday, and it's very early. Only like 7am. I wanted to badly to sleep in, but I guess they call it morning sickness for a reason. Today is the first day of my third month, and honestly, I can't wait for it to be over. Everyone tells me that I will start to feel better after that mark, so here's hoping. I guess I ought to think about breakfast, but after you throw up, who wants to eat. I suppose I should go get ready for church instead... I'm not sure if we're going, but Steven will know.

Pregnant with Hannah

Today has been an interesting day. I woke up sick, as usual, but the frustrating thing is, no matter how hungry I am, I can never eat very much. I can't finish anything. Even a sandwich or a snack. I feel a lot like I'm not getting enough to eat, even though I am trying really hard to eat good things instead of junk. I guess the good thing is our freezer isn't working well, so I can't have my one downfall. (Ice cream) And sleep is practically impossible. I'm not comfortable, and when I am, I have to pee... or something equally annoying. I guess it will all get better as I move along. Thank God it's only one more day before I officially qualify to be in my third month. Then maybe I'll start to feel better... or so I hope. Seems like everyone wants to tell you horror stories about the people they knew that were sick the whole pregnancy. (or worse the ones who weren't sick a day) I guess that's enough griping for one day. Hopefully I'll have nicer things to say one of these days.
