Yesterday was not.good.

I had my first EVER real battle with morning sickness.

I am almost out of the first trimester.

I shouldn’t be tired.  But I am.

I should have energy!  But I don’t.

I shouldn’t be feeling like I am about to pass out.  But I did.

I shouldn’t think ginger ale is my new favorite drink.  But it is.

Everyone thinks it will be a girl.  But the jury’s still out on that.

(We’ll find out for sure in about a month.)

 But I feel it in my bones…it’s a boy.

Saves me money.  I’m cool with that.

    Ugh. I am sorry. I just wanted to say that I think every single mommy blogger I know is pregnant right now. I was catching up on my blog reading and seriously, everyone is. Not a bad thing, just an observation. 🙂
    I hope the yuckiness does not continue…

    I’m sorry you are feeling icky. I used to try to tell myself that was a positive sign. You’re almost out of the Icky Zone. With my #2 and #3 ms started a little later and lasted a little later, but when it was done it was done. Meantime, put your feet up and rest!

    Hmm…it seems to me that every time someone has a third child and has all new symptoms from the first two pregnancies, it means you’re getting something different! My guess…it’s a girl! And our daughters can be friends 🙂

    I was the sickest with #3…I think b/c we don’t really give ourselves time to stop (you know having 2 other kids). I hope it gets better.

    You have all my sympathy for feeling icky… it stinks! Saltines, toast before your feet ever touch the floor, and bananas. Room temp. diet coke helped me too.

    Some pink in your house might be fun…

    I felt like I was about to be sick all day, every day, from the 8th or 9th week on. I mean, a nasty queezy feeling that I could get any relief from. But I never actually “tossed my cookies” until the last day of my 4th month. One bad “toss” then it was all over, Once I got it out, I felt quite well from then on until delivery day. Sorry that you are feeling ill, as time passes, it will get better. I think another boy would be great! : )

    Sorry you aren’t feeling well. It is hard with 2 little one already. As if just chasing after them isn’t hard enough by itself! I was so tired when I was pregnant with Abbi and ready to pass out as soon as the boys were in bed. It showed too, the house…let’s not even get into to that!

    I was totally wrong with that gut feeling on both of mine. I just KNEW Avery was a girl…wrong. And well I just KNEW Lauren was another boy – wrong. I have to say though that my pregnancies were the same for the most part – only I gained weight mostly in the front with Lauren…..I sure hope you have a girl!!!

    I was dead tired, always hungry and sick nearly the entire pregnancy with both of my girls. I say girl! 🙂

    Honestly, i’m not sure I’d do well with a girl if I had one 🙂

    Feel better soon.
