My secret...

Is that I am pregnant :-) I am currently 10 weeks along. It was so hard to keep a secret, especially since I found out when I was 8 dpo. But because of the miscarriage last time, I just wanted to hold on to my secret until I got an ultrasound. But, there he/she is!! I am elated!

This is a reason that I haven't posted lately about food, because I have had severe food aversions. I have been really nauseated since week 4, and then last week, I began throwing up every day. It was terrible. I didn't have that trouble with Jeanne, so I didn't know how to handle it. I could cook some days, but couldn't eat it. And whatever was in the fridge looked terrible when I packed my lunch the next day. So for a while, I mostly ate Ramen noodles and Chef Boyardee! This past week was better, then today was not a good day. I could tell as soon as I woke up if it would be good or bad.

I can't stop looking at the ultrasound. It is so amazing!! It makes it even harder to understand how someone could choose to end the life of a baby. So the fact that the government here in Arkansas has passed a law banning abortions after 12 weeks is definitely a step in the right direction (see report here).

I have tried to explain it to Jeanne, but I think it's too early too expect her to understand. Just the other day, she told a complete stranger, "I have a baby in my butt!" I was mortified!!!! I had to explain that Jeanne calls her belly button her butt, and no there is not a baby there... Ugh! Anyway, as I have been told, things happen a lot faster the second go round. At 10 weeks now, I measure the same as I did at 17 weeks with Jeanne. I was not ready to pull out maternity pants this fast! And bigger bras... Ouch!
Yes this picture is from the bathroom at work. Classy, I know.


  1. Congrats again. Hope things start looking better. My sister Anna recommends potatoes for morning sickness. Seeing that she had it for 9 months for all three of the boys I'd at least try it.
