We're back...

Adam took a week off work so we spend the week doing fun stuff with Grace, visiting family and a lot of relaxting. Here are pictures from the week! She LOVED the Ft. Worth zoo the most... I just wished we lived closer to go more often.



In other news... everyone has been asking how I'm feeling. Well frankly like poop! I've lost 6 pounds since getting pregnant from getting sick, but since I'm 11 weeks this week hopefully it wont last much longer. My doctor did call me in some super expensive medicine (Zophrane...not sure how to spell it) that is the a true wonder drug. Only bad thing is that since its super expensive my insurance will only pay for 10 pills a month so I'm only using those on the days that I'm really bad. And since I start my new job TOMORROW I had to save a few for those days. I go to the doctor on Tuesday so I'll be sure to give some updates then. Maybe the doctor has some samples of the medicine he can give me for free, but not likely. Oh and I'm practically already showing! WHAT... already! All my clothes still fit and stuff, but I can definitly see a little belly starting to pudge out. I'll be in full blown maternity clothes before I get out of the month of August!

Well gotta run. Sorry its been so long since my last update. I promise to be better! I'll even try to update tomorrow after Gracie and I's first day at school.

So glad you got to spend sometime with Adam, it is so nice to have those extra hands when you don't feel well. Looking forward to the doc update and by the way I think you look GREAT!

Looks like ya'll had a great time.

I hope you start feeling better! I HATED this part of being pregnant especially when you have a 1 year old you're chasing around! It does get better so you have that to look forward to. It's worth it, but twice was enough for me, that's for sure. No more at least until my boys are BOTH in school!

When I was preggo with #3, Zofran was a life saver! Too bad your insurance doesn't cover it. Hopefully you will be feeling better soon.

Yahhh for a fun week with your family! Brandon and I really wanna do that soon. The whole taking some time off together thing. Since he has a new job, it might be next year before we can do a week. Good to know that there is a medicine that works for you,, sad that is so pricey though!

Did you show this quickly last time? It might be a boy!

I too had a pudge at 12 weeks! I guess this baby was ready to show! Ha! :) Enjoyed the pictures! I showed quickly with Bubbie... I hope you start feeling better QUICKLY. I had a few sick days with Bubbie, but this pregnancy I was sick for WEEKS ON END!

I'm so sorry you're feeling badly!! Let's hope you feel better VERY soon!

That feeling sick stuff is definitely no fun - especially keeping up with a toddler!! This pregnancy (#2) is flying by - so hopefully yours will too - at least to the feeling better part. My belly is bigger this pregnancy - guess things are just all stretched out!!

We love being close to the FW ZOO - it's a fun zoo! We usually get a zoo pass so we can go whenever - but right now we are waiting for cooler weather!!

I meant to tell you yesterday that Zofran is AMAZING, and the reason is works so well...it is an anti-nasuea pill designed for cancer patients going through chemo! It is expensive but worth every cent!

hi,

Ijust came across your blog again!! I think I left you a comment a long time ago...anyhoo has your Dr. mentioned the Regland Pump? I had that with three of my pregnancies for Hyperemis Gravaderium. THe Zophran was not covered by my insurance either. I think I got like 5 pills and I really could not tell that much differance from the phenegrin. Anyway the Regland Pump is something you wear and it releases medicine in all day. I usually started feeling better around week 16 or so.

Just thought I would share.
