Heading in the right direction.
Well, I haven't reached triple digits yet... however I am gaining weight. Today I weighed in at 94lbs. So, since I have stopped getting sick, and my appetite has picked up, and I've eaten almost all of the 'trick or treaters' Halloween candy, I've gained 3lbs. Today I am 17 weeks, and DoeDoe went to the doctors with me. She got to hear the baby's heartbeat, which is always fun, and also held my had when I had some blood drawn, never fun. Overall everything is going nice and smooth. Dr. Nauman gave me a new prescription for my migraines, and is pleased to know I'm not getting sick anymore. I also made a special request that he doesn't plan any vacations this spring! He laughed, and said he didn't have any plans made. DoeDoe had seen him at the Ravens game this past Sunday, so it made me think... what if he makes big plans when I'm due? What if he is away on some tropical island? That's where the special request came from. I would hate to go through all of this with him, and have someone else deliver the little one! I have a sonogram next Friday, November 7th, so we will have an updated picture... as long as they can capture one without letting us know the sex!

Ten Days, and Counting....
That's right, I have not been sick for the last ten days! I am so thrilled! Once in a while I still feel waves of nausea, but it doesn't compare to throwing up! I am also starting to eat more... soon I should start putting on the pounds! So far with the second trimester, I have just been dealing with headaches and some dizziness. Two weeks ago, the dizziness had me fall down the stairs at my house.... that was not fun at all... but the baby was checked out, and everything was ok. My dad took me over to GBMC that day, and he got to see the baby! Pop Pop thought it was pretty cool!

13 Weeks.
This afternoon Eric & I went to another doctors appointment. Everything was wonderful. I lost another pound, but that is because I am still getting sick, however, Dr. N said that should be ending very soon... I sure hope so!!! Lately I have been talking to my belly, and begging the baby to behave! My blood pressure is just fine, and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat again! This time it was louder& faster. We also heard the baby moving, which was really cool!! We have another appointment in four weeks.

Tiny Bump.
We went out to celebrate the bachelor/bachelorette party for our friends Lauren & Doug, who are getting married in two weeks... and we had a great time. I'm just starting to have a very tiny baby bump... so the girls are excited! Over the course of the night, my girlfriends sang to, danced with, and kissed... my belly!
