I asked my 15 month old "what his bloody problem was."

Then he pooped diarrhea all over.

Then I cleaned the diarrhea off him,
his highchair,
and my shirt.

And then I stole the "I'm a good mom" shirt 
that my brother made for MY mom.
And then I felt better.

I don't feel so good.

I've been taking a B6 and 1/2 a unisom before bed.
It seems to help.

The other day I decided I was okay and I didn't need to.
I threw up 5 times in the next 24 hours.

When I was pregnant with Carter I took a second dose when I woke up.
And I basically slept through my 1st trimester.
This time around I've been muddling through with just one dose.
Because I figure Carter needs his mom to be awake.
Yesterday Carter got into a container of Vaseline.
Not once, not twice, but THREE times.

Maybe I should just sleep!

Also yesterday I had a meeting at 12.
My thought process went something like this...
Starts at 12.
Good, we'll be home by 1 to have lunch with Li.
Better leave 1/2 hour early.
Okay, 12:30.

And so we arrived for our 12:00 meeting at 12:50 :)

All day sickness

It's getting worse.


So let's hear them.
Out with your secrets.

Did ANYTHING ACTUALLY help you with morning sickness?

Just in case...

Just in case you were thinking that it might be a good idea to entertain the baby with a smoothie while you cleaned the kitchen....

(Notice there is no cup to be seen?
It's on the floor.
Surrounded by splattered smoothie.)

Unless, you were hoping to clean the kitchen twice.

Quakers Meeting is over

Going wordless was really fun.
It got me back in the habit of taking pictures,
which makes life seem more exciting.

Although the last little while has been exciting enough on it's own!
Carter was sick and kept me up until 3:30am
and 3 hours later we found out he was going to be a big brother.

I was REALLY hoping to be pregnant.
Then I thought about adding another sleep-wrecker to the mix, and I had to wonder, 
"What in the world was I thinking?!"

I'm better rested now and really excited.
So far I'm feeling okay, just TIRED.  
But I'm pretty sure I can feel the nausea creeping up.

As for the marathon?
Who knows?
