Jer had a birthday!
Next item on our May agenda was Mother's Day! Everyone was so sweet to me and gave me gifts celebrating my impending motherhood. I couldn't be more excited. :o)
And of course, we've been doing some serious baby growing over here. Before I got pregnant, I knew I didn't want to be one of those people with overloads of pictures of their growing belly and nonstop posts about pregnancy but I decided its high time to let you guys see the progress. Not much from the outside, really.
I was very nauseous all day long from about 5 1/2 weeks till 10 1/2 weeks and then the nausea cut down to just evenings. I'm still nauseous at night but I think that should go away soon.
We are really so very, very excited. We feel that this is such a blessing and cannot wait to hold our baby in our arms. We already have names picked out, one for a boy and one for a girl. We decided to stick with family names (we've got a lot of great ones in ours :o)).
Jer and I are both still working our butts off. We both work full-time and then in the evenings and on Saturdays Jer tutors and I coach private lessons. Its kinda killin me to be honest so I'm contemplating cutting down to part time so I can give my students more of my energy. Jer has been a rock star husband through this pregnancy and has helped with everything from laundry to cooking meals and has not complained. It has been really hard for me to feel like I can't do much due to nausea, lack of energy, etc. but i'm hoping I will hit a second wind here soon.
