10 weeks!!

I don't have a picture for this week. But the little one is the size of a small plum!
I woke up this morning with my emotions running wild. I just started crying. No particular reason just a combination of "stuff". The work day was so slow.
At about 4:30 a strong feeling of nausea came over me, even with the wristbands on. It went away and came back, went away and came back. I was so glad to get home. J had dinner ready. What a wonderful man I have!!
We went to small group and studied Paul. I am so exhausted. It's time for bed!
-Until tomorrow

A friend that works with J said that his wife used an accupressure band that is usually used for seasickness could help with morning sickness. I just got them last night and they worked awesome for 4 hours straight. I took them off to go to bed because I felt antsy with them on. Shortly after I took them off, I felt horrible again. I almost couldn't fall asleep I felt so horribly bad. I eventually fell asleep.
This morning I put them on as soon as I got out of the shower. I have made it through the day feeling somewhat more of my old self. There is still a tinge of nausea here and there. But nothing as strong as before! Even if these things are mental, I don't care. I feel great...or better than I did! Thought I would share! Here is what they look like. Mine are gray!!

Mondays last forever.

I got up at 8am this morning. I thought I would work at home. But when I called "senior designer" he wanted me to come in just in case Wominh didn't come. Wominh is another designer. Alot of "senior designer's" projects have been going to him because I am so overloaded.
Of course after I went in to the office Wominh came in. I got alot done though. I have 2 new clients: Nier and Fish. They both paid their design fees last week and I am working on conceptual plans. I also finished the change order for Sween today...FINALLY.
Speaking of finally, NEWS FLASH....Homie proposed to Chica on Saturday night!!!!!! Chica is my very best friend! She & I have worked together for about 9 years. 6 of those years have been at the current firm that I am at now. Homie is one of the installers. They have been dating for 5 years. I didn't think today would ever come!!! YEAH!!!!
After work, I got my hair cut. Then for the rest of the night I worked on designing a special gift certificate for J's dad. He is involved with an organization that will be auctioning off different items for charity. The gift certificate that I made was for lunch with the president of J's company. I really enjoyed making it!! I didn't feel sick the whole time I was glued to the computer tonight!!!! Time for bed!
-Until tomorrow.

My day of rest!!

Again, with the 7:30am thing. I just want to sleep peacefully!! When I sleep I don't feel sick!!
Waa, Waa...
I started designing a gift certificate for an auction for J's dad. I really like doing things like that. I completely concentrate on something else and don't feel as sick. I was going to a jewelry party today at 1:30, but I just couldn't make it out the door. I just couldn't make myself go. I fixed my hair, put on my makeup...I was all ready to go and I just felt awful!! Kaydee..please tell your sister that I had every intention of going and trying her h'orderves, I just had a sick episode at the wrong time.
I eventually picked myself up and went to Wal-Mart because I couldn't sit at the house anymore. This was my list ( I know you're dying to know) 1. Kitchen trash bags 2. plastic cups 3. hair gel 4. Light pink nail polish 5. Yarn
I painted my nails earlier today and they look like I dipped my fingers in pepto bismol. It's quite scary!! I have also decided to crochet a project. I am hoping that this will get my mind off of the sickness!!!
I started a Martha Stewart poncho. My hands are kind of hurting, I haven't crocheted in a while.
-Until tomorrow.

Just get me out of the house!!

I just can't sleep late anymore. I don't know why. My sleep is not deep and everytime I move in the night I wake up. So, when I wake up in the morning at 7:30am, I can't go back to sleep. I read some chapters in a new pregnancy book that Kristin let me borrow. It is really cute! I got really antsy and just HAD to get out of the house. J & I went riding around in the convertible. It was a beautiful day. 71degrees and not a cloud in the sky. I had to put a jacket on. We didn't do anything particular, just went here and there.
We decided not to have a real Christmas tree this year because of the new kitten. She is such a menace that we don't want her knocking it over and spilling water and tree needles everywhere. We bought a 4' pre-lite tree. It is cute and just the right size to put next to the fireplace.
I absolutely HAD to have Taco Bell for lunch. There is something about a bean burrito or a soft taco that just makes me feel better. J is going to get real sick of Taco Bell. We also went to Blockbuster and rented a couple of movies. We got the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Batman Begins and Bewitched.
We went to church at 5:15, then J took me to Fuddrucker's. Yummy!!
After we got home from dinner, I felt really lousy. I was in and out sick all day, but I was really sick after dinner. J & I watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was weird but if was good. I liked it.
I am wiped out and SICK of being sick!!
-Until tomorrow.

I'm 9 weeks today!

The crown to rump length of the embryo is 1 to 1 1/4". This is close to the size of a medium green olive. The baby's arms and legs are longer. Hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over the heart area. Fingers are longer, and the tips are slightly enlarged where touch pads are developing. The feet are approaching the midline of the body and may be long enough to meet in front of the torso. The eyelids almost cover the eyes. External ears are evident and well formed. It now moves its body and limbs.

Isn't life just amazing!
I have had a really rough week. I'm feeling really nauseas. I can't wait till I at least get to the 2nd trimester!! Maybe the nausea will go away!
-Until tomorrow.

Catch up...

I have not been feeling well for the past two days and the days before that our DSL was down. It just started working today.
Pregnancy is not easy. The past two days have really kicked my butt. The nausea just pulls you down. I'm really trying to just "suck it up", but it is harder than you would think. J is so awesome to put up with me! I love him so much..mushy, mushy.
I left work at about 11:30 yesterday. So I am starting the week off behind. I went to our new client's house Strod at 10:30 with senior designer. We met an architect there. There are so many twists to this house. Hopefully everything will work out that the client wants. The city is really very annoying when it comes to some things.
Anyway, that's my update for now.
-Until tomorrow

8 weeks today!!

It is amazing to read how the baby is growing. Today the baby is the size of a pinto bean. The eyelid folds are forming on the face and nerve cells in the retina are beginning to develop. The tip of the nose is present. Ears are forming, internally and externally. In the heart, the aortic and pulmonary valves are present and distinct. Elbows are present, and the arms and legs extend forward. Arms have grown longer. The bend at the elbows and curve slightly over the heart. Tubes leading from the throat to the functioning part of the lungs are branched, like the branches of a tree. The body's trunk area is getting longer and straightening out.

I felt great today!!

I had a really good day. I didn't feel sick at all while I was at work today. It must have been the chocolate chip cookies I ate today (I wish).
I gave final approvals on the drawings for Sim and Py today. Those jobs will officially start in December. I also order new tile for the Gor job...exciting! For the rest of the day I worked on putting together production and installation folders for Py. I really got a lot done today. It was a productive day. "Senior designer" didn't come in until later in the day.
When I got home J & I talked a bit and before I knew it it was 6:15. I had to be at my small group at 6:30. I was only 5 minutes late. It was a good study. We studied Phillipians 1:18-27. I told everyone I was pregnant. Only half of the group was there tonight, alot of people were out of town this week. I stayed and talked for about an hour after we were done. I got home at 9:30. J & I watched American Chopper. I really like that show. Those guys are funny. This epidode was them traveling around in London on different tours. No wonder people don't like Americans in Europe. Time for bed!!
-Until tomorrow.
