Back from the beach....

We are now home (sigh!). I had a fabulous time at the beach with my in-laws. I think I've mentioned before how fortunate I am to have married into such a wonderful family. We spent most of our time out on the beach so the boys--D and A--could swim in the ocean. We laughed so many times this week at how silly these boys can be. For instance, they invented this game called "Save yourself or the ball." They would wait until a huge wave was about to start and throw it at each other just as the wave peaked...You could either go for the ball and take a wave to the face or save yourself and miss the ball... Well, let's just say they each took a brutal beating from the ocean and even convinced my hubby, K, and his brother, N, to play. Very funny stuff....

I am back at work in the real world now. I'm playing catch up on my statistic's class and staying very busy.

P mentioned below, feel free to skip.

I feel okay so far. I am 8 weeks today. I haven't really had any morning sickness other than the occasional nausea if I let my stomach get too empty. I feel really nauseous when my feet hit the floor each morning and I have developed an ugly gag reflex. I have had two really bad headaches in the past two weeks, probably from the hormone changes. Since I am a migraine sufferer, I've had to just tough it out. I have been authorized to take Tylenol, but I don't want to do anything at all to risk this baby's health. So....I am coping with ice packs and dark rooms.

I'm a little sluggish, but I think that is from exhaustion from traveling. I have a dr. appt in the morning for my OB work up and to meet with the finance people. I am eager to see if my iron may be a tad on the low side. On the other hand, I have been eating like a horse!

Just wanted to say hello and tell you all that I am still praying for you.

Sounds like a great time with some fun little kids. :) I'll be praying for your appt and can't wait to hear the latest!

oh, and when you mentioned that your iron might be a little low I was wondering how you would test that- and what a doc has to do with a piece of electrical equipment... I was thinking clothes iron as opposed to blood iron. Considering I iron *maybe* once a year I have no idea why my mind jumped to that! ;)

Why would anyone want to skip the pregnancy part?! I love hearing about people's progressing pregnancies.

Are you going to start taking belly shots?! I always felt SO TIRED when I was pregnant.
