DH/SO Name: Kris

EDD: Nov 5th

How far along are you? 11weeks and 2 days!!!

How are you feeling? Alot better then I was but still tired and pukey - luckily the actual :puke2: has lessened...not gone yet but I am hoping soon

Something good? I really feel like I am going to make it out of the first trimester!!!!!!! I will feel even better on Thurs when I have my ultrasound

Something bad? I puked so bad this morning before I ate that I hurt - nothing is worse then puking on an empty stomach

What are your plans for Easter? DH, DS and I will go to my parents house - about 2 1/2 hours away. My sister and family are there - I have three amazing nieces. We will spend the weekend going to church, doing easter eggs, blessing our baskets and eating and eating Smile We are Ukrainian and my mom is the traditional Baba that constantly cooks. Plus I plan to tell my oldest niece this weekend - she is 10. I will make a Big Brother T-shirt this week and DS can wear it. I am also making all the nieces and DS a T-shirt that says cousin #1, cousin #2 etc and I will make a onesie that says cousin #5 - I am so excited. I usually don't do stuff like this as I tell people early but I have been careful to keep it from my niece since I have had so many m/c.

How far along are you? I'll be 10 weeks this Wednesday!

How are you feeling? Good. Really my only symptom has been fatigue. REALLY BAD fatigue, but I'm not complaining.

Something good? My DS slept in until 10 am today!!!!!! (You may wonder why this is good. He is a BEAR about going to bed at night and I think it is time to give up his nap. It will be easier to keep him up today after his nice sleep in. Also....see the bad below.)

Something bad? DS sleeping in was also nice because our entire family was squished in to our double bed last night. DS and DD both came upstairs in the night and climbed in. DH and I were too tired to get rid of them. Eventually I went downstairs and slept in DD's bed around 4 am, but until then I got barely any sleep since I was squished up against the wall. My kids are bed hogs.

What are your plans for Easter? We will just do a small family thing (just us) on Sunday. Both my mom and MIL & FIL will be out of town that weekend so there won't be much of anyone left around here! We'll have an egg hunt in the morning and go to church as usual at 11:30 am. Perhaps I'll make a nice dinner for us too...haven't thought about it yet!

How far along are you? 8 weeks

How are you feeling? okay. Having some food ick this week, tired, sore bbs.

Something good? I had a REALLY awesome time at a great funky craft show on Saturday and sold almost $500 of tie dyes! Really pumped for some other ones I hope to do over the summer and fall. Smile

Something bad? My nephew who had a stroke a couple weeks ago is hitting a rough patch in his recovery. He's not been feeling good and has been vomiting the last few days, and he is really not progressing at this point because of that. My SIL and BIL are getting pretty discouraged, as Hunter is only 8 1/2. I am hoping he gets over this bump and has a strong recovery.

What are your plans for Easter? Um, lots of them!! DH's family gets together on Saturday for a blessing of the baskets at church then a Polish food luncheon at my SIL's house. Then the kids do an Easter Egg hunt in the yard. Sunday its brunch at my sister's with her son, husband and our dad, then down to my MIL's house for lunch with DH's family.

How are you feeling? Not so good...I caught a cold. Super sore throat, fever, and coughing till I want to throw up.

Something good? We got to see our baby on 4/14 and HR was 160bpm! Our peanut is a very active, bouncy little thing.

How far along are you?little over 8 weeks

How are you feeling? pretty good. was experiencing diarrhea for FOUR weeks and finally took some kaopectate (doc ok'd it) and it seems to be better. other than that i feel pretty ok. a little tired and every once in a while a little pukey but nothing too bad.

Something good? i have an appt today and hoping to get an u/s to see the little bean. i have to go in for a pap but i think if i pout enough he'll give me an u/s

Something bad? today is the last day with my OB Sad i'm really heartbroken about this. DH got a new job and the insurance isn't that great and this guy isn't in our plan. we just can't afford NYC docs out of pocket. he is the best though and literally wrote the book "preventing miscarriage" and i'm positive is the reason why i have my son. he is retiring from delivering in august anyway so it kind of works out and i'm going to go to a colleague of his whole is just a block away, still on park ave. still, it's going to be hard to tell him. i'm pretty sure i will cry.

What are your plans for Easter? we are going to my aunt's house in jersey. it's only about an hour away so that's easy. my dad is one of 10 kids (yep, very irish catholic, haha) and most of the family will be there. looking forward to it because usually we're with DH's crazy family for easter and i'm happy to not have to deal with that stress. if all goes well at today's appointment i think we'll tell everyone about the baby too. i'll be 9 weeks which is a little early but not too bad i don't think. plus they will all notice that i'm not drinking.
