Is the third time a charm?

This is what I have been doing in the absent weeks.

- laying on the couch
- not cleaning my house
- not cooking any meals
- liking almost no food
- letting the kids watch way, way too much tv
- spending many hours with my head over the toilet or sink
- losing ten pounds
- being saved from my death bed by Leslie (my mother in law)

Most recently I have been

- eating three tomato and cheese sandwiches a day (thanks to a neigbour's beautiful tomato plants)
- actually getting up in the morning
- only throwing up in the morning
- put on four of the missing pounds
- leaving the house
- hearing a little tiny heartbeat

Our family has survived fourteen weeks of me being pregnant and whiny. Let's hope for more eating and cooking and leaving the house and less of me driving Micah crazy.

As a side note I had an ultrasound at 12 weeks because of some spotting. All was well and even though they said it was too early to tell they got a good shot and guessed we are having a girl. Time to start thinking of names.

I am glad you're feeling better! You were starting to worry us!

P.S. I'm calling her Leah Jr.

Congrats Bess and Micah! I am glad you are starting to feel better!

P.S. I was at the temple on Sat. and saw Micah's mom across the room. I felt like a stalker because the only reason I knew it was her is because I recognized her from her blog. :-)

congrats guys. that's huge and awesome. seriously, "it" will be the third cutest baby ever (and sorry henry, you're the second cutest - congrats to harriet).

I think that if my sisters do not
stop having such cute children I am
going to have a complex if my children are not as cute :)

I am glad you are feeling better.
I can't wait to see you and the
kids (and you too Micah) in November.
I'll be tired of the house stuff by
then and will be needing the break
and a really good Thanksgiving dinner.
