I'll take some fruit, hold the peanut butter



John and I are expecting a new bundle of joy this June! We are very excited. We found out in October and it is STILL sinking in. I have been really nauseous but haven't thrown up too many times compared to how I was with Kelsi. I am not sure if I should attribute that to this baby possibly being a boy, or the fact that I started downing the Zofran at 7 weeks this time instead of 17 wks with Kelsi. I wasn't going to take any chances.

We surprised my parents with the news when we went down to CA in November. Kelsi was sporting her "Big Sister" pajamas. Needless to say, we STILL had to point out her PJs. We surprised Johns family at Thanksgiving dinner. The Calderwood tradition before dinner is to go around the table and say what we are thankful for. When it was my turn, I mentioned a few things I was thankful for including my pregnancy.

I don't think I will be posting monthly pic updates like I did last time around...it got pretty scary those last couple of months. However, we had our ultrasound at what we THOUGHT was 9.5 wks only to be told that our lil baby was about 2 weeks behind. So, it feels like I have been pregnant forever. I am just about 14 weeks. Baby's heart rates was 160 and then 172 at the last two appts. We are VERY happy.

As for the picture above, all I want to eat is fruit. However, it is NOT good to crave fruit in the winter...in Idaho of all places. Nothing is satisfying me. Sadly, I have an aversion to Peanut Butter, which is usually my favorite food.

I am so excited for these next 6 months to fly by so that I can: brush my teeth without gagging, eat my daily dose of peanut butter, get back into my REGULAR exercise routine, not feel like I am going to vomit at any second, stay up past 9pm (and that is PUSHING it), sleep through the night without having to pee 2-3 times (hoping after a couple months that this baby will be just like Kelsi and sleep sleep sleep), be a happier wife and mommy, stop taking these dumb prenatal vitamins and most of all so that I can cuddle with my brand new bundle of love.

Congrats! I saw your post on facebook about it. I hope that the nausea goes away soon. Fruit is a good thing to crave, by the way, even if it is the middle of winter.
