The Pregnancy 411

In case you missed my little announcement on the end of Journey into Motherhood, we are:

And now for the skinny on my impending non-skininess ;)

The official due date right now is Oct. 21, which is so weird because that was Maddie's original due date. It was later changed to my own birthday, Oct. 19 and she was born on Oct. 17. SOOOoooooo, we will see when this little one decides to be born. I have an ultra sound scheduled for Thursday so maybe we'll get a better idea then.

I have the feeling that I am going to "pop out" really early. I'm only 6.5 weeks and some clothes are already too tight. But I actually like showing and I like wearing maternity clothes so I look forward to showing the baby bump to the world. Strangers start smiling at you when you do. ;) And you know how it goes: with the first one, you wear your regular clothes for 5 months. With your second, you put away your regular clothes as soon as the two pink lines appear. With the third one, the maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes. Just joking of course.... although I do have a couple maternity dresses I wear in the summer whether pregnant or not. Hmmm....

In any case, I restocked this important item:

As for how I feel... well. Not good. Not good at all but thanks for asking. I feel like the biggest wimpiest woman on planet earth but I am just as sick as could be. I am so lethargic, I annoy myself. I have actually been getting up in the middle of the night because I feel so nauseated even in my sleep. I think it's way too early to start this not being able to sleep through the night business, so I'm going to have to remedy this problem some how!

I am already eating really weird things like this:


And this is very important to keeping the nausea for being too much to bear:



As are these bland crunchy little guys:


I told Seth about this baby in his Valentine's day card. ♥
We've told Maddie as well, and I'll post the video of that soon. For now, the couch is calling my name again. ;)


Love,

what was that food in the first picture. The first thing that popped out of my mouth was, ew what is that. Doesn't look appetizing to a non-preggers person, unless you really do just take bad pictures of food!!!!!!!! :D

Remember ~ call me anytime to take the little ones off your hands!!!!!!! Love ya ♥

The food is crab salad on bread, broiled. I really wanted it at first but now I can't stand it.

We'd be happy for a boy but I really would be very happy with all girls too. I think the gender topic could have it's own post!!

Congratulations, Kayte! It is so hard to be sick, though. I hope that you are able to rest (physically and emotionally) from your work or worry.

Do you have a Wegmans near you? They have the most incredible seafood pizza on Fridays. That was my first guess as to what you pictured.

Hope you're feeling better soon. I almost emailed to see how you were feeling when I saw this post.

okay, for the record! I've had her crab salad stuff (that was pictured) and it's super good! But then again, I'm a picky eater so unless it's like widely known to me, I usually say ew! But her crab salad is good!! Great, now I want some!
