We will soon be a family of four instead of three. I am 14 weeks pregnant and due the first week of October. I spent most of February in the throes of morning/all-day sickness. The nausea started at 7am and would last to around 7pm, but eventually it stopped. Then the extreme exhaustion kicked in. For awhile I was going to bed at 8:30pm and getting up at 7am! Nothing like 10-1/2 hours of sleep to make a girl feel rested. The food aversions were challenging this time around. If I ate anything with garlic, I felt like I had the stomach flu for 6 hours. Things seem to be balancing out now, and I have more energy and can eat anything.
So, of course, the house projects need to be kicked into high gear. I want everything done by early September, so we are not still in construction/painting projects during the delivery. I'll have to keep you posted on that one. We are hauling another load of stuff to Goodwill this weekend and maybe some things to the Rebuilding Center (house recycling place that is incredibly addictive- they have EVERYTHING!). That should take care of the final pile. Our contractor is coming next week to assess the situation. Yippee!
