I'm Still Here!

Tuesday, August 19, 2008


I would like to have an excuse. One for why I have been incapable of blogging.

But I don't. There's no excuse.

Except for the part where I've lost a total of 6 pounds, because I have yet to consistently keep food down. It's been about 9 weeks since this all began, and even water can still make me queasy at times.

I went 2 full days last week without being sick. That was awesome. And at my last doctor's appointment I had maintained my weight - instead of losing weight. That's also awesome.

But why? Why am I so very sick?

It's a cute reason. Two little arms and two little legs. And ears, can't forget the ears.

I got to see the ears last week. So did Hubby.

The ears (and all the other parts) are 13 weeks and 6 days along. That means that we should see the ears up close and in person somewhere around February 20, 2009. We don't know if they are girl ears or boy ears, yet. (And before I get the onslaught of "if you are sick, it's gotta be a girl" - please know I've HAD a girl before (in 2005), and wasn't this sick. Not even close, so I'm not confirming a gender until I see the next ultrasound.)
So, maybe I've had a little excuse. One about 3 inches long. It's not a Caterpillar yet, so to distinguish (even though they mean the same thing) we'll be using the term Larva for the wee Butterfly. Hopefully, as I begin to feel better, I'll get back into the swing of blogging. I uploaded many pictures last night that I can't wait to show everyone.
As a side note, my Mum (Cookie) is obviously thrilled. To find out why she's over the moon as it were, visit here.

That is one of the best ultrasound pictures. It is so clear. I am in love already.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! I vote for either a boy or a girl. It would be awesome to have either one. I'm glad that you are starting to feel better. One thing that I found that helped a little was cinammon tooth paste. It made brushing my teeth much less of a puking experience. I know how you feel being sick all of the time. I was sick for all nine months with both girls and it is poopie.
