Bob is Baby #3’s nickname. Think Blob, drop the L. I figure the odds are boy any way, so why don’t we just submit to a macsuline surname? Thanks to some spotting, I got to see my little Bob yesterday via hoo-ha cam. 3rd time and I still leave feeling a wee bit violated. (thank you ultrasound tech for WARMING the gel).
Bob’s heartbeat was 178 and it was measuring a few days ahead of schedule. I have heard 3 different due dates so I am going to go the middle one-January 16th 2012. All in all the baby is healthy (so far) and what else can be better than hearing that? Thank you Lord for this miracle you have entrusted us with.
I also found out this week I have a hiatal hernia, which means my small intestines are smashing up against my stomach. You like how we are getting all personal? So….that is why I am nauseous all. day. long. Nothing is digesting. Sounds fancy.
Blogging has taken a back seat to feeling like a am going stab myself in the stomach all day. Morning sickness has found herself a home and is starting to really wear me down. I start playing games like, “I would rather be put on the LA times telemarketing list than…” And it usually ends with me hypothetically camping in a dumpster if the morning sickness gustapo gave us an option. In all seriousness, God has been faithful to carry me through each day and give me enough grace to get through even the grossest of days. So that is a huge praise and answered prayer. I need to be focusing on Him and asking for His strength.
It is so true that all you want when you are sick a mommy to comfort you. I get 2! That care and that love us so much. So blessed by them. My mother in law gave us a refridgerator full of meals. (HALLELULIAH) Which means Chad and the kids will eat some good food other than cereal and canned beans. My mom has watched the kids almost everyday this week so we could just basically get through the week. A big thank you to the Nanny/ Nonni’s! xo
