A Little More...

Nausea, that is. Life is so unpredictable. I was slightly more nauseous today. :( I will take that nausea, though. I had a friend today tell me that she is also in the same current state of suffering as I am. My burden suddenly feels a little lighter. A fellow sufferer with matching sentiments. I have to give that one an "Amen Brother Ben!" Yes, you may stop talking to your computer screen now, I know you are calling me a big baby. That's okay, say what you like. My friend feels my pain. :)

The Magic of Medicine

Did I forget to mention??? My OB prescribed a lovely little pill that melts on my tongue and then MAGICALLY takes away almost all of my nausea. It is called Zofran (generic - ondansetron). I almost feel normal. I went on a walk yesterday with Skot and now I am about to go on another one. :)

Cooked Food

I had some spaghetti last night. It is the first real solid meal I have eaten since Friday. The Warrs brought over pizza on Friday, which I made myself eat (it tasted good). I paid for that one. I have some mild food allergies and there was for sure something in the pizza that my body did not like. :( Tummy ache.

My New Best Friend

I love butterflies. Of course I do. I'm a girl. A week and a half ago I was at a local farmer's market and found a stand with some cutie little girls selling butterfly chrysalis'. I was intrigued, bought my chrysalis and took it home to hang it up and wait for an emerging butterfly. Here are some pictures of my sweet-boy butterfly friend. (Yes, we identified the sex).

Fetal Position

Wow. What a strange title for a post you may say to yourself. Well, it certainly has a double meaning. I've spent a lot of the past month in the fetal position due primarily to the fact that my body is trying to support one right now... a fetus, that is. YEP! We are pregnant. Yes, I know - Finally! That's what everyone is saying. We (or I, whatever) are 10 weeks along. We went to the OB on Friday and heard the heartbeat. Thank goodness! I did NOT want all this suffering to be for nothing.

Before I list my complaints I would just like to go on the record as saying that I am extremely grateful for my current status. Yay! Baby coming in February!

Now for the complaints. I'm suffering from almost constant nausea. Oh, it's so yucky. Plus, three of my favorite things have been sacrificed in the process of forming this alien fetus. First, my enjoyment of food is pretty much gone. I severely dislike ALL cooking smells. This means I eat crackers, fruit, cereal, and yogurt. That's it. Second, I now detest the smell of my sweet husband. His scent, which was my favorite, now is just, well, yuck. Poor sweet boy. Third, I haven't run in - get this - FOUR WEEKS!!! I know - NO WAY! Yikes! I actually found myself winded after climbing my stairs today. What the heck? No likey. :(

Disney Sample

Skot in "Morocco" at Epcot.
On Cinderella's carousel at the Magic Kingdom.

Ok. These are just pics from Skot's phone. I still have to go online to purchase pictures that we had taken at Disney. Sorry this is sort of lame. :)

Fallen Princesses

Snow White

I love these pictures. I ran across them on a friend-of-a-friend's blog. They were concepted and shot by Dina Goldstein. Obviously she imagined these fairy tale princesses dealing with (sort of) real world issues. I really love Princess Jasmine! She looks so tough.

I am disliking blogger again today. I tried to center the names under the pictures and every time I publish the post and click view... it looks just the same. Why? Why? Why?
