Pickles anyone?

Posted by Mandy at 11:18 AM

This is a 3-D ultrasound image of a baby at 7 weeks.. that's how far along I am now and I find it incredibly cool to imagine that's what my baby looks like. Isn't it amazing how quickly babies grow?! I heard on Discovery Health that if a fetus grew as quickly the entire 9 months as it grows in the first 9 weeks, it would be as large as THE SUN at birth! Talk about a growth spurt! I'm feeling pretty well for the most part. I do have all day sickness.. but nothing horrible to be honest. I haven't thrown up in two days, even though I tried b/c I felt awful and hoped it would make me feel better! It's just a bit funny to me that I couldn't STOP throwing up with Carter, and I can't even make myself this time! Another funny thing, to me, is that I actually have found that eating a dill pickle helps me feel better. Okay.. does that not sound like something that would send you over if you were already feeling sick? Don't ask what made me think that would work... but I just wanted one the other day and it did the trick! This is the first time that I've been pregnant that I've wanted to eat pickles... God is ending our family on a good and semi funny note.

Thanks to everyone who came over and played with us Sunday! Clayton is ever so grateful that he got to play Settlers.. and that he held his crown once again. Someone better beat him soon before he stars thinking he really is the King of Sadan. (or is it Knights of Iran? lol) Inside joke.. I realize it makes no sense to most of you! Hope we can get together again soon! And I am ever so thankful to LeeAnn for brining me salad! I swear, I have never enjoyed a salad so much in my life! lol I'm never going to gain any weight if I keep these kinds of cravings up!

Hey, salad anytime, for you! I had a good time talking and watching Desperate Housewives while the guys played! Can't wait to do it again!

Hey, I forgot the tricks thing. My mom bought some preggie pops for me. It's ginger root suckers, basically, and they helped but I've already passed the leftovers to Suzi. They can be bought in LR of course and maybe online somewhere. But,my big secret help was unsweet tea (which is how I drink it anyway). It always seemed to calm my stomach when I was feeling yucky while pregnant with Abby. You can get it decaf if it makes you feel better (always did me)!

Thanks Kristy! I've actually been feeling pretty well the past several days! It's hard to figure out if I'm really sick or really hungry sometimes! lol Often times, eating helps.. which is a first for me! (it would always make me hurl with the other two lol)
