Groundhog Day


So I (or rather E&M) are now just over 9 weeks pregnant and things are going well. I’m still nauseous 95% of the time and throwing up every other day but it’s all good, totally worth it! So I’m basically stuck in my own personal ground hog day.
Basically my weekdays consist of:

6:20am – Get up, take the dog out, feed the kids, take dog out, get coffee and Caleb’s breakfast ready, take dog out, get dressed and do make-up, take dog out.
7:25am – take boys to school
8am-5pm – Work
5:20pm – Pick boys up from school
5:30pm – 8pm – Dinner, walk and feed the dog, bath, boys to bed.
8pm – 10:30pm – Caleb tiling while I do dishes and then relax and try not throw up 😉

Weekends are pretty much the same except throw in the boys and I in the dining room while poor Caleb tiles 🙂 I must admit the lounge looks amazing though, and he’s almost done, hopefully we should have the house back to normal this weekend!

I still have to upload belly pictures and the first scan, I am so behind on that! Excited though, our new dishwasher is arriving on Saturday, no more hand washing 🙂 And I just signed up for the Summer Switch Witch on the BPAL forum. Basically you get assigned a persona and you send them gifts and cards anonymously and in return someone send stuff to you too. I love it and I can’t wait till I’m matched with my witchee. If you love perfume you have to check out Black Phoenix (link is at the bottom of my blog) they sell AMAZING perfume blends.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up but I’m feeling a little better, not 100% but certainly not as nauseous as I’ve been, trying to stay positive but I don’t want to say it out loud incase the nauseous comes back ha ha!


8 Weeks along and behind :)

6/5/13 Hi everyone … so the last 2 weeks have been crazy busy with Dr’s appointments, morning sickness and a new puppy (what were we thinking?). I went for a follow up appointment with my Dr last week and everything looked good, even got to hear the heart beat which I managed to video record for E&M so they could hear it! I love hearing the heart beat, it makes it seem so real! Morning sickness is kicking my butt though! Yesterday I caved and got my Dr to prescribe Zofran for me (to help suppress the nauseous) it’s sort of been helping ha ha. So according to my Dr and from when the transfer was (and the age of the embryo at the time) we are exactly 7 weeks 2 days pregnant. So about 4 or 5 days off from what we originally thought. E&M came down for today’s appointment which was great. They got to see their little baby U/S and hear the heartbeat! They then took me out for lunch which was so sweet of them. They kept apologizing for me feeling sick 🙂 it just comes with the territory!

6/11/13 Instead of writing a separate post I thought I would just add on to this one. I am now 8 weeks pregnant and this little raspberry is doing numbers on my poor stomach! I threw up at work for the first time today, luckily no one heard me (I hope) if they did I feel so sorry for them. I am not the quietest of people when I throw up, it’s loud, disgusting and really gross! But I guess it helps me work out what this little bean doesn’t like, this morning? A smoothie from Publix! Things at home are crazy with Sam (the puppy) and Caleb tiling our living room. It should be done by this weekend which will give us our space back. We also have to go shopping for a new dishwasher this weekend (cannot wait!) doing the dishes every night is very tedious! Father’s day is coming up this weekend. I have a few things up my sleeve but am going to head over to Pinterest to see if they have any other cute ideas. I have belly and a U/S picture that I’ll post tonight!Elle xx
