I really meant to post something last week but time just got away from me...as it does so often these days! As of last Friday I am 10 weeks pregnant and starting to feel a little better. The morning sickness isn't constant anymore which is great but I'm still a little limited on what I can eat. The baby really doesn't like fried foods...which is great but that just happens to be what I'm craving! Other then being extremely tired still I feel pretty good.
I had a doctors appointment Monday and so far things look good. They drew blood and I didn't hear back from them so that is good news. We didn't listen for a heartbeat yet but will at my next appointment on the 11th. I was shocked last week when all of a sudden I popped out! I'm still not 100% obvious pregnant but I'm getting there fast this time around.
The best thing in the last week is that I'm about certain I have felt the baby moving for a few days. At first I just figured it was gas bubbles because I was much further along with Jaelynn when I started feeling movement. But last night I laid down in bed after being on the go for the better part of the evening and felt it right away. It could still just be gas but it sure does feel like the first little flutters of life!
Jaelynn is doing great! She is happy that the weather is finally taking a turn for the better and we are able to spend more time outside. We've been having the eating issues again but I'm starting to think the girl just doesn't like plain meat. So I guess I'm going to have to get more creative. Jaelynn just shocks me every day with the things that she says and her little personality. I can't believe in about 6 weeks she is going to be 3!! We had the following conversation the other day while she was going potty:
"Momma...I'm going to go to school soon."
"You are right Jaelynn, in a few months you will be in preschool."
"Will you cry Momma?"
"I will probably cry a little sweetie. But only because you going to school means my baby is growing up."
"Will the baby cry momma?"
"The baby might cry."
"Do you think Grandma M will cry?"
"I'm sure she will. But it just means we are happy sissy."
"Ok...well don't worry momma. I won't be gone long."
I have to remind myself sometimes that she isn't 5!! She also knows her birthday will be here soon and that she will be 3. She can't wait to have cake! Time sure does fly by. It is hard to believe that 3 years ago I was huge and pregnant and couldn't imagine what life was going to be like with a baby. And now, almost 3 years later, I couldn't imagine my life without her!!
