Pretend this post is super cute.

i had this grand vision of taking an adorable photo of me holding up a positive pregnancy test with b and i looking all happy and out of focus in the background.
*
but then i started feeling like total crap.
*
and now all i do is lay around and try to avoid thinking of, looking at, eating or smelling anything that is food. or anything that is in anyway related to food. in fact, just typing the word 'food' has made me ill.
*
when you are trying not to think of food...everything reminds you of food. for instance, we went to a messiah sing in downtown for a christmas activity and the whole time i was willing myself not to vomit. and in my head i was thinking..."ok. ok. you are fine. you aren't going to vomit. nope. no way. lets think of things that aren't nauseating. ok...lets see...umm....sheep! cute little sheep. fluffy sheep. that make smelly cheese. BARF. ok...not sheep. what about trees? trees just sit there. and provide shade. and grow tall. and produce fruit. BARF. trees are out. ok. what else? umm...silk. silk is soft. ok. just picture silk. silk. silk. silk. actually, now that i am thinking about it...silk sort of reminds me of chocolate. BARF. ok...not silk. um...ok...umm.... frick."
*
BUT...all of that aside...we are very excited and very happy and very freaked out that this bebe will be more like me and less like b. poor b. if that is the case he has no idea what he is in for. pray for him.
*
hope you all had a happy christmas.

I'm so excited for you two! I COMPLETELY know what you are going through. The one and only thing that helps is Zofran or the generic of Zofran. Get it from your doctor NOW. Hopefully you have great insurance that will pay for it. Try to hang in there. I promise it really is all worth it.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is great news! I am so sorry you are sick. It is the worst!!! The grocery store is pure evil! I am guaranteed to go and throw up at the grocery store when I am prego. Avoid it at all costs! :) I am thrilled for you guys, and all that sickness will be worth it! :)

Tiffany said...

Congratulations! I hope that sweet baby is JUST like you!

Erin Taylor said...

Well, diet coke was my friend during my pregnancy- but I often wonder if my overly energetic kid is the result of that! Either that, or he's payment for all my past transgressions!

Ali said...

Congratulations!!! That's all I have time to say because Henry's all up in my face right now!

CONGRATS! Sorry about the pukes. They are the WORST. I promise the baby you get at the end is worth it. :)

Jen said...

Woo HOO! I'm with Melanie...Zofran is a gift straight from heaven! Don't wait until your next appointment...just call your dr's office and have them call in the perscription ASAP! After all, you are now a pregnant woman and that is a ticket to getting pretty much whatever you want! :) Hope you feel better soon!

Kate said...

Oh you are such a baby!! JUST KIDDING!! Hang in there lady. It'll clear up soon, does 'clear' remind you of fooood? It just reminds me of water, I thought that would be safe. :) Whatever, it's late. So the baby will be just like you, I will definitely pray for B. A LOT. Hahaha I think I'm hilarious. Miss you

Katrina said...

woo hoo!!! congrats!!! as one who is just barely out of the first trimester and finally beginning to feel more like a normal person, I feel your nausea pain. I hope yours doesn't last too long. we need to chat about pregnancy stuff. have you picked a doctor/midwife?

Meg said...

I'm getting an iPhone reasonably soon, and i just found out about a neat app on Cydia called Localis or something like that. I really want to use it, but I want my iPhone to be normal otherwise. Is it possible to jailbreak, download Localis or Loclis or something, save it in my applications in my itunes, and then sync it to my normal iphone after restoring?

I. AM. A. DOOF!!! I've totally talked to you since you posted this, and now I'm worried that I only talked about myself. BECAUSE I DID!!! I'm totally behind on my blog reading, but I didn't mean to be so crappy. And, by that, I mean, I'm going to stop making this comment longer by talking about me and say:
CONGRATULATIONS!!
