This first trimester with baby deuce is a bit more challenging than it was with Noah. This time around I am SICK. Lay in bed, eat crackers, stay in sweats, don't-wanna-leave-the-house sick. If I don't eat I feel bad and if I eat too much I feel bad and heck, if I eat just right I feel bad! I am surviving on diet ditto's - which are a knockoff of sprite/7-up. I don't normally drink soda but I've been drinking at least two of these a day. The weird part? They have to be room temperature, preferably almost flat, and I drink them with a straw.... crazy, I know!
Darren has been wonderful, of course. He helps so much with Noah and around the house. I don't know what I would do if I had one of those "it's your job, woman" type of husbands! Darren is the type that will cheerfully say "Why don't Noah and I go to the grocery store? do you have a list?" giving me some much needed time to veg. Even though I am so DONE just laying around. I am very bored - but just the thought of leaving the house wears me out... It's like having the stomach flu, but for weeks instead of days. Ugh.
Here are some pics for your enjoyment... A few are from when we went to visit great grandma and grandpa in portland, and a few from when my amazingly talented and brilliant photographer/clinical-psychologist extraordinaire friend came to visit us before she heads off to get her doctorate in chicago. We had a great time with "kekky" (Kelly) :)
