Hey suze- hang in there, the am sickness will pass! And at the end you get a baby out of it. Tried lemon? (Just kidding- nobody slap me, please! [:D]) I guess it's easy to joke when I'm not the one feeling brackish.

It feels good to post, thanks for noticing- December was a rough month for me. My gram died at the beginning of the month, my two nephews and niece came up mid-month for Christmas, and just left a couple of days ago. We were just too busy, ykwim? It feels good to be free to sit with a cup of coffee and tool around on the computer again. I feel more like me again. (which is good, I think?)

That is awesome news, Suzanna! How exciting! And yes-morning sickness does suck! I am so sorry. One more thing to blame your husband for [;)].

Laura,
I have been using the Unisom and B6 together. It helps some, but the awful nausea just lurks... ready to consume me UGGGHHHH!!!!! I know it won't last forever, but it just plain sucks.
Yes, we always find out the gender of our babes. We will have another ultrasound in about 9 - 10 weeks. I am looking forward to that one and then you can all help me out with names.
Glad to see you here again - I'm sure you were taking a needed break over the holidays.

Hi Suzy- I'm so glad to hear baby's scan was good! That must be such a relief.

Morning sickness[xx(] I'll keep my fingers crossed that it lets up- and if it doesn't- plain ole' garden variety Unisom really helped me[;)] not necessarily for sleeping, but for the nausea. Come to think of it, antihistamines always did help with mine. I wonder why?

Keep up the good work growing that baby! Now the next big question is going to be boy or girl... do you guys find out the gender? I can't wait to find out!

Ultrasound

Postby sweetiesuzy » Sat Jan 03, 2004 08:14 am

I had my ultrasound appointment yesterday. It went really well. I was nervous because we had found out Chloe was sick from our first ultrasound... but thankfully everything looks GREAT! The baby was actually moving a bit. Such a little peanut. The heartbeat was strong at 160 beats per minute. I am only 9 weeks along. My morning sickness has been so bad this time. I am looking forward to the first trimester ending so that this may let up. My blood pressure continues to be in a fine place and no meds needed yet! All my blood work came back normal as well.
We are happy and so thankful for everything thus far.
Hugs to you all -
Suzanna
