In early June, I found out that I was expecting our third baby! This baby is due on February 14th.... which is kinda funny, because that is our anniversary and Collin's birthday is very close to that day. In fact, we spent our anniversary in hospital having Collin.
So with my previous pregnancy I thought I had had pretty bad morning sickness. But this time I really thought there had to be something else wrong with me because I was sooooo sick. I literally had food aversion to every food. I even had aversion to my very favorite foods like frozen yogurt and chocolate chip cookies. I threw up all the time. I was laying down most of the summer. My poor kids had a sad excuse for a summer. My sister came to stay with me for a week to take care of me and distract me from being sick. I was so grateful. When our family was in Oregon I did pretty good. I loved the cooler weather there. I lost ten lbs before I finally started feelling better in mid- august.
I am soooo glad to not be throwing up anymore. I feel like a person again. I don't know how women who are sick the entire time have more than one child. I finally feel like I can be excited to have another baby. So far I haven't tried to hope for a boy or a girl... cause I know I have nothing to do with it. Also I would have been happy with either. We did look at the chinese calendar for predicting when to conceive in order to have a boy or a girl. According to the calendar, almost the entire year is a good time to conceive a girl for me ....
It turned out to be right!
