This week has physically been one of the hardest weeks of my life. My morning sickness finally subsided at the beginning of the week, but I picked up a stomach virus and a head cold. I would have taken morning sickness over the stomach virus any day. I honestly have never gotten sick so many times in 2 days. At one point, I was getting sick once every 45 minutes. I ended up going to the doctor, but he couldn't give me anything because I'm in my first trimester. He told me I was a little dehydrated and if I couldn't keep anything down I was going to have to get fluids at the hospital. Thankfully that night I was able to keep down some jello and a little water so my arms were kept IV free! I am finally starting to get better. I have been able to keep all of my food and water down for the last 2 days and have been eating somewhat normal. As for everything else, my symptoms have seemed to subside for the most part and I am getting into the "feeling good" stage of pregnancy. This post is belly picture free because I lost 2 pounds this week and I am even fitting back into my regular jeans so there is definitely nothing to see.
In non-baby realated news, we are going on vacation next month!! We haven't been on a real vacation since December 2006 so I am ready. I kind of just woke up one morning and decided I was sick of the cold weather so I planned a trip and the rest is history!
