My Miracle Monday (errr Tuesday): Week 8

How far along? 8 weeks. Finally - the milestone we've been waiting for to start telling friends!

Baby's size?
Well, my ticker says a raspberry. But I've also read a green olive (1 inch). That just makes me want a martini!

Weight gain? 2-3 pounds

Not as well as before. The nausea makes it a little more difficult. Plus, I have to get up at least twice a night to use the restroom.

Foods I am loving? Chicken nuggets, french fries, green apples, anything with lots of carbs

Foods I am hating? Coffee, eggs, salads

Best moment this week? Seeing the baby on ultrasound. Seeing/hearing the heart beat was life changing.

Movement? Of course not! Can't wait, though!

Symptoms? Uggh, nausea and vomiting ALL day not relieved by Zofran. Do not be fooled by the term "morning" sickness - those people lied! Plus, it's really difficult to drink any fluids, so I get dehydrated really quickly.

Gender? We're pretty positive it's a girl!

What I miss? Drinking and enjoying coffee, Food Network (it makes me nauseous to watch), waking up feeling good

What I'm looking forward to? The nausea/vomiting going away, getting rid of this "beer belly bulge" and actually looking like I'm pregnant

Emotions: I am an emotional wreck because I am sick as a dog. My sweet friend, Rachael, sent me this wonderful verse that made me feel better:
John 16:21 21A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.

Oh, baby!

We are so excited we are having a baby!

We are due in April, and we couldn't be more thrilled!
