Trying to keep up, but I started school this week so I've been super busy! Pharmacology is going to be the most BORING class ever, btw. It also comes at the end of a long day and is a three hour long lecture so on Thursday I found myself dry heaving in the gross school bathroom during it. JOY!
Anyway here I am to do an epic check in....

We started our school year yesterday. Very excited. It has gone well the last 2 days. Forgot to take first day pictures yesterday, so the kids want to do pictures later today. Yesterday we spent the morning on lessons, and then baked muffins in the afternoon. I love having my kids home to do stuff like that. Today the afternoon will be spent on crafty projects. My older 2 get to choose what craft (sewing, knitting, etc.) and what they want to make. I look forward to seeing their choices.
I got a prenatal yoga dvd that I've started using. Nice way to start my morning. :)
Miss_Nikki, how did your interview go? And what prenatal videos are you doing? Videos right now are the only exercise I can do right now, weirdly, so I'm looking to stock up! And yay for homeschooling! I love having the kids around to do such things too.

Me tooooooooo. Worst! My bloat is as bad as it was my 1st pregnancy...it wasn't nearly this bad with the second. I swear I look 4 months pregnant just from the bloat alone!

Did you figure this out? Fingers crossed!

I think these may be the cutest two sentences I have ever read on mothering.

It should peak soon right???? I'll be 9w this weekend...
Yes, you're probably peaking. I think my peak tends to be the 7-10w range...I know, it's a long peak. But I have long sick first tris, historically speaking. I start to see a glimmer of hope at 11w usually but have bad days well into the second tri. What were your previous pregnancies like? And CONGRATS! on your wedding anniversary.
