Hello! Thank you to everyone who sent and continue to send congratulations to Chad and I about our new baby! I'm 6 weeks and Thursday had my "You're Having a Baby in Germany" class. It was sadly disappointing and not at all informative. So that was a waste of 1 1/2 hrs in not very comfortable chairs, but it's mandatory and I got through it! I have picked out a dr and on Wednesday will call her when her office is open and make an apt!
One of the great things about German drs is that they do ultrasounds (u/s from here on out) at every appointment. So hopefully soon I'll be seeing our new little gift with my own eyes.
Now as far as the pregnancy goes, it's early on, but I'm definately dealing with exhaustion at different times during the day (wish I could say it over took me at night, but so far it hasn't) and Thursday I got my first official "morning sickness" oh the joys of throwing up! It really was not bad and honestly the nausea is what I'm dealing with more than anything. It looks like I may not be cooking meat much during this pregnancy since the sight and smell of it about do me in while it's cooking. I can eat it, just can't be in the kitchen while it's cooking (and that includes in the oven...the smells). A couple things have just been thinking of them and I was worried I'd have to run to the bathroom! I'm desiring fruits, peaches to be specific! Oh yum!!! Normally I'm not much of a peach fan, but this baby seems to be! LOL I'm thrilled it's healthy foods.
The boys are really excited! I don't know if Jack really gets it, but I think so because he's had a few moments of jealousy where he says "I'm a baby"! I will hold him and cuddle him and we talk about how he'll always be my baby, but that he will be a big brother soon and that he'll be an awesome big brother! Jacob's just thrilled! He's wanted me to have a baby the day after Jack was born! LOL
Chad and I have a ball coming up. This will be the first ball we attend in our nearly 10 yrs of marriage in the Army! Sad but true! I'm so excited and really hope that the dress I'm bidding on, I win it! We'll have pictures taken there and I will be sure to share them on here!
