Nothing new here…all about the same–still green! I see the OB next week for my 12 week check up. I will be having another u/s then. I look forward to that part : )
If you are expecting, there is a great non-profit I learned about who will send you a doppler for free if you have a written Rx from your OB/midwife. TinyHeartbeats.org gives you a free doppler to have from 12 weeks until birth. They only ask that you have a Rx written out and have experienced the loss of a child or you are considered high risk. You are asked to ship the doppler back within 10 days of your child’s birth so they can send it to the next waiting mother. They will even reimburse your return shipping charges if you desire!
Well everyone, I wish I had some exciting news to share or something humorous, but I do not. Our little one is growing and now the size of a grape I believe. I will be 10 weeks tomorrow! I still have all day morning sickness and some days it keeps me in my jammies and in bed. Other days, I get dressed, and live on the couch. Other days, I can get up, get dressed and run an errand after the kids finish their studies. Most days though, I am down. I have not asked for Zofran because I am more nauseous than sick so I am not dehydrating AND I really hope that after I am off the supplemental progesterone I will feel better. I have never felt this puny with any of my other pregnancies, not even close, so I am blaming the progesterone at this point ; ) We will see what happens when I stop taking that in another month.
I wouldn’t say that I am anywhere ready for maternity clothes, but I am already noticing that certain skirts, I don’t like the elastic hitting where it does. On jammie day there is no problem, because I have comfy jammies! I have yet to pull down the maternity clothes from the top part of the closet. I will do that after my next doctor’s appointment in a few weeks. I was PG last time in a different season so I will have to see what I have.
We did not get the 3-5 inches of snow we were supposed to get yesterday. Instead we got icicles hanging from the trees and shrubs that were formed with the water from the septic sprinklers! Uh, yuck! The kids were so disappointed. They were really hoping for snow. It NEVER snows in Houston. I mean if it does, it is a dusting at best, so this was to be an EXCITING event here. Well, it was a flop for the kids : ( They did enjoying throwing things at the icicles watching them fall down though. No pictures of that excitement, sorry, LOL! I was able to scrapbook about 12 pages for our family book last weekend. I felt like I actually accomplished something! I do love to scrapbook and wish I could manage to find more time to record our family’s memories, but I am grateful for the time I do manage to squeeze out.
I have had fun reading everyone else’s blogs and catching up with them this past week. There is so much going on with EA families! New births, new pregnancies, new transfer dates, new consult appointments, and even friends pursuing other types of adoptions are working through the paper chase, finishing homestudies, and one friend is finished and she and her husband are now in the waiting phase to be chosen. So many beautiful and joyous times. Little tiny lives given new hope with new families. God’s majesty through His creation of His earth and His children is so full of promise!
