Planet Pregnancy

I have embarked on a new journey... many have traveled this way before but for me it is extremely uncharted territory. With Chuck by my side we are setting off for the land of parenthood...

We are going to have a baby!!!!
And as such life as we have known it before this point shall never be the same. It has been an interesting experience thus far to say the least. Many of you may not be familiar with the process but in order to have a baby you have to enter a new world or dimension... it looks a lot like earth only with a few notable differences...
Everything stinks... and nothing tastes good.
I have found that on planet pregnancy nausea is a normal state of being, that oatmeal sometimes makes you cry, falling asleep at all hours of the day is required, and usually highlighted with crazy wacked-out dreams.
Ahhhh YES!! I am pregnant, and I guess I was a little fuzzy on the details before I got to this point. I love how happy everyone is for me... I keep trying to be really excited about it too. However I spend most of my day saying, "don't throw up... don't throw up... don't smell that... don't think about yogurt..."
I am trying to not dwell so much in my current state and to envision myself in nine months... when a smiling nurse walks over to Chuck and I and hands us our new little bundle of joy. Sounds like a beautiful little scene... but I really don't have a frame of reference for it. I just can't even really imagine what that will feel like. I hear from mothers all over that it is the most incredible experience...
But right now I am going to need someone to hold the baby of my dreams... I am not feeling so hot.
Five weeks down... I shall return to earth on March 29th or thereabouts. Wish me luck, maybe I'll send ya'll some postcards while I'm gone.
ps. Thanks Chuck... for EVERYTHING.

So i will call you back tomorrow night or saturday once my free minutes kick in!

Ok also...to combat morning sickness you might want to try:

1-Vit B6 tablets 50mg 3-4 times a day.
2-Papaya enzymes
3-Ginger. My ginger tea was a life saver: 1 Tbs fresh grated ginger root, lemon, 1C hot water and sugar to taste, whenever you need it. Or ginger ale, not Canada Dry, but Hansens, it's way stronger.
4-Small protien snacks like cheese or lean meat or nuts.
5-Saltines
6-Sea bands. They are bracelets used to treat sea sickness.
