It all started in week 7

What's the worst thing about being pregnant during the first trimester? That's right, NAUSEA! Well, it hit me to the day of week 7. I have to admit, it's not as bad as it was with McKenna, and even Kambry for that matter. But, it's still there, and annoying, and I do what I can to get through the day. The mornings are always my worst, I have to keep eating to feel okay so I think I am already gaining and I don't really like that. My friend gave me her supply of Preggie pop drops and I really like them. I guess just having something handy always helps.

I am definitely staying busy though. With three other little ones running around the house I haven't been able to take naps like I wish I could. I am a little tired but not to the point of being exhausted or anything.

Kambry seems to be most excited about the baby. She is already telling me to eat so I can feed the baby and she puts her hand on my belly even though I tell her it's so small right now all she is touching is my belly fat. It's so cute though. She is determined that this one is a boy. I hope she's not disappointed if it's not though. We still haven't decided if we are going to find out the sex or not. Originally, we had planned for this one to be a surprise. I guess we still have a couple months to decide though. It's a tough decision because we do have three girls and sometimes it would be nice to know if we do have a boy on the way or another girl and can reuse all the stuff we already have. On the other hand though, it's one of life's great surprises. It will be a decision we will have to think on. For now, it's still up in the air.

I would drive everyone around me crazy if I didn't find out what we were having! Which I think is really funny because I didn't want to find out with Lauren but we did because Brian wanted to. I am so glad we did!

Congrats again. Some things I have found to help with the nausea is eating little bits frequently, ginger ale, cherry limeades from Sonic. :)

Oh, I am just so excited for you. It is such a hard decision regarding finding out the gender or being surprised - either way I cannot wait to hear! {grin}

Thats a tough choice, a surprise would be fun but I would always want to know.

I am so excited that you are having another!!

Congrats!!!! Oh my. Here I am just having nice conversations with you and didn't even realize you were pregnant. After tomorrow, boy or girl, I am sure you simply won't want twins! :)

Sorry to hear how sick you've been. That's such a terrible feeling knowing it won't go away for months. I hope yours starts to subside soon.

I would want to know if its a boy or girl but that's only because I'm so impatient :)

I am so happy for you! Sorry about the sickness though. I remember that all too well.. :) You know what always worked for me? Ice cream. And I hear ginger does wonders, ginger ale, ginger snaps. Might be worth a try.
