Belly Facts...

Here are some of the details about this pregnancy:
- I am 13 weeks, baby's ETA is end of July
-I am beyond sick. Zofran has helped, but I am still visiting the loo at least 8 times a day (although once last week I only threw up 5 times...yay!)
-Because of that high frequency ^, I am TERRIFIED to leave the house alone with the kids. In fact, in the past 4 weeks, I have left my house 3 times. Pathetic, I know.
-Is it bad to say I am really, really, really hoping for a girl? Boys are fun, but I am craving all things pink!
-2 weeks ago, I had a cramping/spotting scare. Turned out to be nothing, but it REALLY helped me put the whole sick thing into perspective. I realized how much I want this baby (I am embarrassed to admit how easily I lose sight of that fact when I am so sick)!
-I am not really craving anything. I craved spicy cheetos for a few days, but you only have to throw those up a few times before that craving disappears...YEOWZA!
-Did I mention I want a girl? I kinda think it's a boy. Jared wants a boy. Kerrigan wants a sister. Tucker just wants a haircut so he doesn't look homeless anymore.
-My kids watch a lot of tv, and eat a lot of PP&J sandwiches and corndogs. We also have pj days about 4 days a week. Because we are awesome like that. I have to constantly remind myself K has been through this before, and she turned out ok.
-I have been amazed by the support we have received. My visiting teachers have been AMAZING, and the RS has been bringing us dinner 3 times a week. It's been a humbling experience to accept that much help, and we are incredibly grateful!
-Depending on the how the day goes, the baby bump fluctuates. Some days it seems huge. Then I have a really bad day and it disappears.

*I know you kinda want to, but please don't judge how dirty the mirror is. Clean mirrors...pretty low on the survival list of priorities.*
