Be prepared, here comes more complaining. It's just not right that you finally get pregnant and then have to deal with morning sickness. Pregnancy is supposed to be a wonderful thing, but until this passes, wonderful does not exist. Today was filled with horrible nausea. I almost didn't make it through dinner. No, I haven't thrown up yet, but I feel like I could at any time. I can barely fix meals. We haven't had a decent, home cooked meal in days, because I just cant do it. I need to go the the grocery store so bad. I should have went days ago, but again, I cant. Being around all of that food would just be awful, plus, I don't feel good enough to go anywhere. Other than feeling bad, nothing going on. Dylan is in the tractor with Ryan again, which helps out a lot. Sorry it's all whiny, but that's how I feel.

Not a whole lot. It's been HOT! I'm not fond of hot and humid weather unless there is an ocean within 100 yards of me. And since my house is not oceanfront, I hate it. It seems a bit early in the year for mid 80 temps. I'm still nauseous a lot of the time. It seems to hit me mid morning. Then sticks with me off and on through the rest of the day. Yuck. When I was out today I picked up some peppermint candies to hopefully help with the nausea. They didn't help last time with Dylan, but I figured I would give it a shot this time around. So far so good! I felt queasy on the way home and popped one of them, and it did help. So lets hope that keeps up, at least for a little while!
Ryan is still in the process of planting. So whenever possible, I send Dylan to ride in the tractor with his dad. Dylan just loves it. The kid's face lights up when you ask him if he wants to go in the tractor with daddy.
For some reason I feel this overwhelming need to go do something with Dylan. Like the zoo or aquarium. I wouldn't mind taking him to a beach, but honestly, the lakes in this state are nasty. Especially ones close to us. Have you walked around a beach at a local state park in the last few years??? I think they stink, the water bothers me...ick, and the loads of goose poop piles is nasty. I hate the sand too. So we wont do that now will we! Maybe once Ryan gets done planting we can take Dylan some where one day during the week. Weekends can be way too busy. I think he would like to go do something. He can talk more this year and understand a lot as well. Lets just hope I don't pass out in the heat, ha ha! But yeah, we should go do something, it would be fun. We got a recommendation that the Columbus Zoo is better than the Cinci Zoo. I went to Columbus when I was younger, but don't think I have been to the one in Cinci. Other than a zoo or aquarium, I don't have many ideas. Anyone else have any interesting ideas for a 2 1/2 year old??? I will take suggestions!

I had my first doctor's appointment today. It all went well, nothing exciting. They took blood and made me pee in a cup. My due date according to them, is January 17. They say I am about 5 weeks and 3 days. I was also told that I am able to go ahead and take Tylenol for my headaches. So I got home and tried that, but it hasn't helped yet. I go back in mid June.
I dropped Dylan off with Ryan today before my appointment. Ryan is working in the fields now, so Dylan rode with him in the tractor. He said Dylan did well. Dylan was happy to be in the tractor. When we left up there today and Dylan realized that we were leaving he started crying. saying "I want daddy, want daddy...want daddy." I think he may have ridden in that thing all day! I need to remember that when they move down here to work ground!

Ugh, well I fear morning sickness isn't too far away. My gag reflex is getting stronger, smells are bothering me a lot, and I don't have much of an appetite lately. Breakfast and lunch I am usually forcing myself to eat, knowing an empty stomach will only lead to me feeling worse. But by dinner I'm usually starving because, well, I don't eat much for the first 2 meals. I was so hoping that I would escape the morning sickness this time. All signs are pointing to a big NO on that one!
The well driller guy showed up today! I guess it's official, there will be a hole #2. Supposedly he is coming back tomorrow to move the rig and get ready to drill. I say supposedly, because its likely he won't be here tomorrow. That's just how he operates!
Not much else. We were outside this morning before lunch. We weren't outside but 5 minutes and I saw a tick just starting to crawl on Chloe. Not much later, one on Dylan's sleeve! Shortly after that, I saw one crawling on a board on the bottom of the play set! Unbelievable!!! Why are they so thick this year? Grrr!

Well I think its safe to say that I feel like poo. Its my allergies. My nose is going crazy. Of course right now there isn't anything I can take, so its just one of those times I have to deal with it. I've been pretty grumpy today because of it all. Nothing much happening really. It rained the last 2 days. Way too much rain. Had lunch yesterday with a friend. Kind of a last minute thing, shockingly Dylan was good. Last time we went he was horrible. So I was worried. But he surprised me and was good and ate all his meal. It was nice to get out, but we really didn't get much of a chance to talk. With 2 kids between us, our attention was mostly divided. Oh well, maybe next time Ryan can stay home with Dylan.
I am so anxious for my doc appointment next week. Maybe the pregnancy will finally set in. This time around, my attention is mainly on Dylan and well, life, that I tend to let the pregnancy slip my mind. With Dylan, all I thought about was being pregnant. I was able to enjoy the thought of being pregnant. This time around I haven't really been able to do that. Don't get me wrong, we desperately wanted this child, and I am so thrilled, but I have so much else to focus on. I guess part of it is that it is so early that I don't feel pregnant. The only symptom so far is bloating after I eat. Yeah, I know you all wanted to know that one, ha ha! I guess I just want to get further along so I start to show and can feel like I am pregnant. Who knows how long that will be though, since I have more weight on me this time around. So a few more days until my appointment on the 20th.

Well I think most of my family and friends know, so it is safe to post here. We are having another baby! I have a doc appointment on May 20th so I should get my official due date then, but I think my due date may be January 16. Either way it won't vary much from that date. We are so happy! We have been planning this baby for quite some time. This weekend was a busy one, but it was good. I am so tired though.
Really, nothing else. Baby news and same ole same ole!

Raining. Yep its raining. I'm a little cold too...so we haven't done much today.
So I have a beef roast cooking in the crock pot and it is making me so hungry. All I can think about right now is food, ha ha. Ok, so we have a giant can of mixed nuts that I bought at Sams Club the other day. So last night I'm going through the cabinets and I see a bag of chocolate chips. So I melted them down, and stirred in the nuts, then dropped them on wax paper in clusters to cool. Today there were set, and they were so good! Homemade choco covered nut clusters!! Yay me!
Food...I am going to make noodles with my roast, and I am going to try to make some corn bread as well. We'll just have to see how cooperative Dylan is when he wakes from his nap. Last night I put a bag of mixed veggies on the microwave (broccoli and cauliflower) and then made a quick cheese sauce. My hope was that with the fairly healthy cheese sauce I made on top of the veggies, that Dylan would eat them. He ended up having 2 and a half servings of those veggies. Any other time he wouldn't touch those veggies! Yay!! Now I just need to buy more cheese so I can use it again. The kid loves cheese!
Ok, ta ta for now!

Ryan and his dad have started planting. That means we won't see much of him for a few weeks. I am glad that they are finally getting this going, but every year I dread this part of the year as well as harvest. You'd think I would be used to this by now, but I guess I'm not. I mean I know that it just has to be this way, but its still rough. Its made worse by having Dylan. Ryan and Dylan just don't see much of each other these times. Probably about a thousand times a day Dylan asks if daddy is working. Now all I can hope for is that the weather stays decent for the next few weeks, so that they can work straight through and get it done. If it stays nice, then they can have it done easily and quickly. Right now they are planting corn and working ground to get it ready for the beans. So let's all hope for nice weather!
So that's what's new here.

I changed the backround as you can see. I am a little bored...I don't know how long I will keep this look. Until I find something I like better I guess!
Thats all!

Not much here. Did a few things yesterday. I got a chance to get my hair cut, so that was nice. Its a lot shorter and layered. It feels so much better than all the heavy hair! It will be long again though, you can almost count on that. Dylan definitely has a cold. It still hasn't affected his mood or anything. So yeah that's about it.
