it's baaacck

morning sickness. Completely sucks. Since last Saturday I've been sick each morning. Doc says just to make sure I don't get too dehydrated. It was reassuring in the beginning, now it is just annoying. It is hard to puke or dry heave with a this basketball in the way.

But enough complaining. Pretty much all is done now. We'll be installing the car seat tomorrow night and getting it checked thursday or saturday. Nursery is pretty much good except for little finishing touches. But we've got all the necessities if she should decide to make an early appearance. The braxton hicks have picked up in intensity and twice in the middle of the night I think I had a real one. She's definitely dropped because I can breathe again, just can't walk or drink more than a few ounces of water.

That's all the news. School started yesterday so my butt is officially kicked. I'm exhausted. Heading to bed nice and early tonight.

and yes, I promise pictures soon

Sorry you are sick again. I too was sick for the whole way. I wish I had something helpful that I could say like you're almost there, but close only counts in horseshoes and atom bombs.

Man, that sucks (the sickness part). Ugh.

I'm so glad to hear how close to ready you are! That's awesome!

I started to get the whole nausea fun again a couple weeks ago - and find that even brushing my teeth now can cause me to dry heave...so annoying. I didn't realize late 3rd trimester brought this on again either.

Yeah you definitely don't need morning sickness so late in pregnancy. Things were uncomfortable enough I'm sure. It's so exciting that your little one will be arriving soon!

Jen said...

Morning sickness again is totally unfair! I am sorry.

It sounds like you guys are ready!

No way! I had no idea it could come back! Grrrr, no fun. Sorry, hon.

In happier news, I'M GETTING SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!! How awesomely close are you! It must feel so strange to look in the back seat and see that car seat, waiting and ready for its adorable occupant. =)

Quick question, too: When did your braxton hicks first start? I'm 33 weeks now and still haven't felt a single one. Just wondering if that's weird. Thanks!

m/s at 37 weeks - ICK! Glad you are at the end of this journey, only to start another...Motherhood! Yes, please post pics soon!

Damn--that sucks! I hope it doesn't last long.

it can come back! no!

Hurling was soooo unbearable when we got food poisoning - the belly in the way definitely makes squatting over the bowl difficult!
