This sickness is kicking my butt! I am feeling even more worn out today. The coughing just doesn't stop.
David's appt. went okay yesterday. He had to have some kind of absess (how do you spell that?) removed. He is in a lot of pain and on his way back for the doc to look it over. They may have more draining to do. <---- Makes me want to be ill just thinking about it.
I was searching baby names last night and I think I have determined that our child will have no name. Nothing is striking my fancy. I would like a name book to look at - wish I felt well enough to go out and look at some stuff.
Some new BFPs coming in on our board. I like that. We have a sort of small group of regular posters. It is nice for more people to be posting. We have lost a few to miscarriages already and that is just so sad. I cannot even imagine how hard that must be.
I noticed when I woke up this AM that my hips hurt when I walked. I thought that was pretty strange. It feels more like soreness from doing something but I didn't do much all day yesterday so I don't know! I'll have to see if it continues.
Going to go for now.
I am just ill. Am whispering to communicate and feel a lack of energy. Not sure what this means as far as work goes. I have not gone anywhere all weekend and don't plan on going out today.
David's absess is actually more serious that I had thought initially. It is really prone to spreading throughout his body and they have to keep a close eye on it. Yeah, he is taking a broad spectrum antibiotic, but we have been down that road before, right? He has to go in everyday (or have a visiting nurse at home) to re-pack the site as it is draining... EWWW. The doc said this could go on for 3-4 weeks! He may not be able to work either as he cannot sit for long periods of time, bend over, or lift things. He is taking Vicodin still but obviously cannot work on that!
WE ARE QUITE A PAIR!
DH stopped in to Borders yesterday and brought me home a baby name book! Mind you, I can't do anything but be online and read! I went through all of the girls names and didn't even find ONE name that I thought would be suitable. I liked these crazy names for girls... Bennett, Kadelyn and Kaden but I don't think I would name MY child that!
Onto the boys names today. I hope I find something!
Here are my belly shots from yesterday...
Scroll down quick if you don't want to see them!
Went to the doc today... yes, it's bronchitis and yes, I am now armed with a work excuse. He told me to take it easy and not talk. He agreed with me that unless I have a fever, no anti-biotics at this point! See, I wasn't crazy!
David just left the doc as well and he got re-packed. That is just so darn disgusting.
I received a phamplet today about being in a placenta study. I think I am going to do it... here is the link:
I am waiting for more info on the 'potential risks' and so forth. The only downside I can see would be the extra trips to . The reason I am really interested is that I get to have extra ultrasounds throughout (4 or 5)! That would be so reassuring. I left a message for the woman who is coordinating the study. I will update you all as soon as I learn more.
I have yet to embark on the boy names. I have not been in the mood to read anything for days. Okay, I am gonna run. The potty is calling and I think the bebe is hungry

My tummy is growling so this will be a short one...
I am better today. Still have lots of clogging in the head but my voice is significantly improved. I intend to go to work today. Suppose to be there at 2p but I have that phone consultation with the nurse so not sure yet how I am gonna work that one out.
Tomorrow is an exciting day because my ticker thingy will say 6wks! Yipee! So many of the gals on my board got their U/S done yesterday. I am SO jealous. Only 8 days away though!
Okay, I am off to eat multi-grain cheerios and some toast.
Bye for now.
I was just laying in bed and realized that I had yet to write today!
I had a really bad day at work so I guess I was trying to relax. The stress of my job makes me really think about priorities and stuff. I just don't need that. UGH! Tomorrow is counseling so she will get an ear full.
I am continuing to get better. Still coughing and plenty of drainage. As far as the pg. symptoms go, I am feeling like I HAVE to eat pronto a lot lately. I guess the bebe is eating all my food. I was sick to my tummy this AM but it was related to the food I had last night, not M/S.
My mom told me that she waited up last night to see the ticker change to 6wks. She waited until midnight but it still didn't change. Isn't that just cute?
I think we are planning a trip to Carter's this weekend as well as the Baby's Room store in a local town. That will be fun!
I looked at girls names today and really like the Liv-ish names. Liv, Livvie, Livia. Still haven't thought up any boys names though. Hmmm.
Okay, I wanna go back to bed plus mythbusters is on and I love that show!
Okay, yes I know, I didn't post yesterday! I was just too tired. By the time I got home and had dinner, it was close to 9 and then I plum tuckered out and fell asleep on the couch. I went up to bed and then realized I hadn't posted. I felt so guilty but was able to rationalize the situation until I really fell asleep!
Today has started off with a bang. The plumber was here and replaced our sump basin so that is good. I already did my toilet cleaning and am waiting for my mom to arrive. We are going to the Carter's outlet first and then probably shopping around until we make it to our final destination, The Baby's Room. I am looking forward to that. I have never been there but hear it is a good place to go to see lots of furniture.
I have been having trouble finding foods that sound appetizing. Last night the only thing I could even think of eating was KFC. So, off we went. MMMMMM! I had 2 chicken breasts, almost a LG container of potatoes and a small coleslaw! I could eat it again right now!
I was a bit gaggy when brushing my teeth yesterday. My nose is soooo sensitive that the smell from the toothbrush (makes my stomach turn) and having something in my mouth just does me wrong! I soaked the thing in cleaner and took it all apart (sonicare) but I don't think it completely did the job. Another thing I can't remember mentioning because my brain is on a Friday break, is that tomato sauce just makes me want to be ill. I could withstand it for pizza though b/c I love me some pizza! I used to have an aversion to it anyway if I would leave a (say lasagna) dish soaking in soapy water or something. I HATED that smell of the sauce and water, etc. So now, I think it has just amplified. HA!
Looking forward to taking pictures this Sunday. I am gonna show my hands too because I bet none of you have EVER seen my nails so long AND white. The baby wants its mommy's hands to be pretty! If that was the case then it would be dong something to help with the cuts all over my hands due to dry air!
So long for now or 'swingset' to some of you
I changed my avatar pic. Isn't she so funny?
David is off having his dressing changed yet AGAIN and I am really putting off getting ready for the day. I need to do so many things but am feeling a bit funky in my tummy today. My temp has been down .1 for 2 days and I don't really care for that too much-makes me worry.
I was talking to DH today about what we are going to do with the rooms and so forth. Obviously we have to get the bed out of the nursery but I am feeling like I want to move other stuff around. Our current living room arrangement is NOT working. When the bebe comes, I don't really want to have things like they are. I have always thought of making the bonus room a play room for big toys and so forth... I know it is really early to think about that though. Ideally, I would like to finish the basement and then move the furniture from the bonus room down there. I would like a big family room, a bathroom, and a storage room. It would be nice to have another room but I think it would make it way too choppy. I have no idea about how to go about that stuff. I don't want to fork over the mucho bucks for a contractor... I think it might be one of those things that gets put off and put off
Only 4 days until the BIG u/s! Woohoo!
My mom purchased a snoogle pillow for me to sleep with. It is really nice. Also, plug covers , hangers, and the initial M. She is waiting on the first initial! We found a little yellow fleece outfit on sale too so we had to grab that up!
Went to the furniture store and we were both disappointed. We are going to check out the other store sometime soon. I hope it is better. We looked thru magazines and decided against the lifetime cribs. Wanted white but was warned at the store that white furniture has a problem with cracking paint due to the restrictions. I think we have decided on cherry stained wood. I suppose I should let DH have a say though, right? HA!
Okay, enough for now. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
So, I need to catch up!
Sunday we had to be out of town for a b-day party and yesterday I was too tired to post. Work was stressful yesterday and that is mostly worked out. I will probably start to work 3 days a week come the summer time and then as fall progresses, cut it back to 2. That is pretty much what we can afford. I don't really know what we will do when I am off to actually have the baby. There are a lot of ways to go about cutting costs but nothing that is really what we want to do (ridding of cable/internet, etc.) I am thinking of rearranging the student loan stuff. I don't know how many more months I can defer for though. I have been paying on them for months but there is a L-O-N-G way to go! I will figure something out, I am sure.
David is still going in daily for the re-packing. He is very annoyed with this. Things still look good though.
U/S is tmw. I am glad but really nervous too. So scared that something won't be right or whatever. UGH.
Here are my pictures!
The one on the left I was attempting to suck it in and the one on the right is just normal belly.
And here are my lovely nails
And since I am at it, this is me and DH in case you are wondering...
Now to compare first shots with current:
I think I am a lot less bloated now but I haven't eaten yet today either and all the pics before were at night!
I am off to eat breakfast! Will update with u/s pics tmw.! Say a tiny prayer for us.

So, yeah- I am paranoid. I have these really great u/s pics from yesterday on a disk from the u/s tech but I can't edit them to get my full name off so I will have to show you the scanned in ones which aren't nearly as good.
HB was 132! The appt. was really good. They gave me a prescription for some other kind of prenatal vitamin which I have yet to fill. DH was over the moon at the appt. and acting really goofy. Enough to start to get on my nerves. It is funny how calm I am about the whole thing and he is SO over the top. I just keep thinking about how long I have to go and such. It was a very cool experience though!
I have to go back to work today which is kind of a bummer. There is SO much to be done here. We have been sorting stuff to sell at a garage sale in a few months and that has me hopeful! DH is back into picking up cans for the summer mos. He is hoping to save enough to buy some ham radio things that he needs since his old configuration from the S10 won't work in our new truck. I say Yeah, I know, I am mean-
One awesome thing I will say is that DH wanted to start writing in a journal to the bebe last night. He let me read the first entry and it is just too darn cute!
I took DH to the furniture store yesterday. He too was not impressed. I am looking forward to actually going somewhere that has what we are looking for. Whatever that is!
Have a good day! The sun is out!

I guess I don't feel so guilty about not writing anymore?
Not too much to update. I am starving right now but have to wait a few more minutes. I am suppose to take one of my medications on an empty stomach and then wait an hour to eat. This is ALWAYS a problem.
Yesterday I had to get up earlier than usual to let the drywaller in to work on our warrantied cracks, nail pops and such. So, by the time that he left, I felt VERY tired. I ended up napping for an hour or so before DH got home. Then I felt cranky. You just can't win. I had a better night of sleep last night- I slept on my stomach which is SO much better than either of my sides.
Had a few waves of the weird throat feeling yesterday that leads to the naseousness. One time my eyes teared up- you know that must have been close. I did whatever I could do to think about ANYTHING else and it seemed to do the trick. I don't know why my throat and upper chest area are so sensitive like that. T-shirt collars drive me crazy. Maybe that means that the bebe will be some kind of crazy kid who likes to be naked ALL the time.
Have to turn in our taxes today. We are having a friends' preparer do them because they are cheap. And the reason they are cheap is because they are some hole in the wall office that allows smoking in their offices. This is obviously a problem for me because I don't want to smell like smoke ALL day and I don't want to breathe that into my bebe. Unfortunately this means that DH will go in for me and that means that he has to go out of town with me even though he would much rather do his own thing at home. Makes me feel bad!
I am hoping that any day one of my friends will tell me that she is pregnant with her first. Her husband doesn't want kids right now, to my knowledge, but they are far away so I don't know if she has been able to change his mind yet! DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE? GET BUSY ON THIS! I can't wait for you to be parents! Oh the joys of taking an infant to Fudds, right? Happy Birthday, young lady!
Have a fantastic day!
