So, while my morning sickness has gotten way better, it is still hanging around. I am grateful not being nauseated all day, every day. However, I do puke on a pretty regular basis still. The only thing is that now I have little warning. Awesome. What frustrates me the most however, is that there isn’t much food that appeals to me. I love canned pears, mandarin oranges, and tropical fruit salad. I’ve been diggin’ the bbq meatballs lately, and chicken noodle soup. It’s just frustrating not knowing what I want to eat. Argh. This too shall pass. It’s just a pain in the meantime. I’m glad that I have a happy baby thus far. I had an OB appt about a week and a half ago. I was convinced that we wouldn’t hear the heartbeat. But we did. Guess I’m a little more paranoid than I thought. It also turns out that I now have a heart murmur. This is totally normal in pregnancy, however since it’s a new finding for me, I get to have an echocardiogram (aka ultrasound of the heart).
Christmas was good. It’s my favorite holiday. I absolutely love getting together with all the family. I was lucky in that I got put on call on Christmas Eve and didn’t get called into work. Yippee! We got our first big baby item…..a bassinet. I love it! I’d put it together, but I fear if I did the cats would think it’s theirs. So, we’ll wait until I’m closer to my due date.
I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday and enjoy a happy and safe new year! Here’s to 2009!
