Capturing life's most precious moments

Announcement and suggestions?

Word is starting to get around, so I thought I would let everyone know that WE ARE EXPECTING!!! We are SO excited! I am due the 26 of June, and am about 9 weeks along. I have NEVER been so sick in my life. I think if it had been like this with Bub, he might have been an only child. I'm usually only nauseated during the day, but at night, I can't do anything. I can't eat anything but oatmeal, toast, soda crackers, and water, and I can only eat a couple crackers passed 4, or I'm up all night. Believe me, I try other foods when they sound good, but it never stays down for very long, and then whatever I tried can't even be smelled or I vomit. I'm SO nauseated, and my sides and back are sore and tired from the constant puking. UGH! i don't know if the huge difference between this pregnancy and the last one has to do with my thyroid problem, my 60 lb weight loss, or something else, but I've already lost another 9 lbs in these nine weeks, and am hoping and praying that this is a "first trimester" thing, and will be over soon. Poor Bubba and Kyle have to deal with my moodiness, and they are such troopers. Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited for Bubba to be a big brother and to have another child in our family, but this stinks. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might try that will make me feel better? Anything that is easy to keep down that I haven't thought of? Anyway, it really IS happy news.

Congrats! You are like a week after me! I am feeling the same way though. Yucky! Sorry and I hope you start feeling better soon.

I'm sorry!! I wish there was a miracle cure. Hopefully it will be a 1st trimester thing & soon enough you'll be up & about & ready to party!! But, it's just another reason I think we'll wait just a bit longer. :) Let me know if you need ANYTHING. Seriously.

I was totally sick too with little Anders. My doctor suggested Vitamin B6. 25 mg 3 times per day. Try it. I don't know if it will work, but maybe give it a try.

What is the meaning of this Christmas craziness?!!! No Thanksgiving at the Budge house?! Sigh...
Oh- I was going to tell you that I remember using that vitamin B6 that was commented on above- I think I remember it helping. I might even still have some. I'll check.
