You May Have Noticed...

that things on this blog have slowed down a bit lately. However, I do have a really good reason, I promise! O is going to be a big sister!!! She is SUPER excited, and she has already decided that I am having 2 babies, and their names are Mimi and Buddy. She is planning on nursing the babies (although I REALLY think it's just 1!). She loves to hug, kiss, and pat my belly. She has a great stethoscope, and she loves to listen to my tummy. She tells me that she hears the baby laughing and crying, and she says that HER belly says "All aboard the choo-choo train." Silly girl :) I've been extremely exhausted for about the past 5 weeks and very sick for the past 3. Hence, the slow down! O has done a great job taking care of me. She loves to do little things to "make mama feel bettah."

  3. Congratulations! I found that ginger altoids (or ginger almost anything - ginger candy, ginger beer) and sour candy are really helpful for morning sickness (all day for me too). I kept ginger altoids and sour patch kids with me all the time. I also found watermelon to be great in keeping the nausea down. Congratulations and good luck!

  12. Congratulations! I am so sorry about the morning sickness. I was sick until the third trimester with my second and it was misery.

    Sour candy to suck on was my life saver!

  21. It worked really well for us to get my son a doll before we had his brother (when he was 21 months old). He also has a little boppy pillow (a travel neck pillow) and feeds his baby while I am feeding my baby. He also will let me use my pump, but only if he gets to also "make milk" for the baby from his tummy too.

  22. Congratulations! That's exciting. I don't think I could keep up with my 3 year old and be pregnant again! Make sure you take care of yourself and get as much sleep as possible!

  25. Congratulations! What great news. I have a 4 month old and a daughter who will be two this month. It has been a challenge but an even greater joy. How wonderful that you have your mom to help and encourage. She is a great blessing to you, it seems. I took double doses of Vitamin B-6 and magnesium every day which (after a week or so) really cut down on the morning sickness.
