Welcome to the first trimester Geigerin
Don't worry, it only lasts 3 months
The morning was actually my best time of day. Day and night were the worst!
Ginger is good.
Papaya extract for heartburn
I remember keeping bananas and arrowroot cookies by my bedside table.
Otherwise I just wanted to sleep.
Do you have to work?

Sorry I missed your post yesterday, Aleks. Colorado and Arizona are beautiful in very different ways. I hope you enjoy your visit.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you've had recently. Just curious, have you and your DH considered assistance with conception? Would that increase your chances? My mom had only one ovary due to an ectopic pregnancy and had endometriosis. She was given about the same odds of conception, and she and Dad were able to get pregnant 3 times after me. Due to the endometriosis, she could not carry to term, but since that's not part of your trouble, I wonder if that's more hopeful for you.

Yeah, it makes me nervous that I feel good right now. Good to know it can be normal to feel good in the a.m.

Now, I love bananas. I eat ezekiel bread with peanut butter and banana after every run (walk right now). It's great recovery. However, bananas on their own tend to upset my stomach. I don't know what it is. Do you think it would be okay on it's own? What is the benefit? Is there a lot of vit B? (I know potassium and beta blockers)

Do you have an arrowroot cookie recipe? That sounds good.

Yes, I do work, but it's summer so my schedule is more flexible and I'm usually done by 2 p.m. For example, I just took off through next Monday.

aliks- your post just caught my eye! the same thing happend to an old friend of mine, she had one ovary removed, she had one child after, and she wasn't trying (if that makes you feel any better)
That all sounds so incredibly stressful. Just dealing with one of those things would send me into a tailspin. You're doing great

I don't know what it is about bananas...

The important thing is to listen to your body. Assuming that you are going into the pregnancy in good health don't worry too much about what you eat or don't eat. Morning sickness is the embryo's way of protecting itself from potential toxins you may ingest. It is so very vulnerable at this stage it doesn't want you to eat. The battle begins....lol:

I read a fascinating article on morning sickness when I was pregnant. I wish I had bookmarked it.

As for the arrowroot cookies. I bought the ones with the baby on the box I would have had a really hard time baking during that time.

And remember that morning sickness is considered a really good sign of the health of the pregnancy.

Ha ha. I ruined two passes through our yard with the mower last week. Ground was sitll saturated from rains and didn't notice until the end of the row. Probably not a good idea to mow in the rain.

Speaking of which, we've finally been rain-free for at least two days. I think it's safe now, so I better go take care of what has become a meadow in our front yard.

also, my hair is now all the same colour again & my face did surprisingly not sweel up like a balloon considering the effect the allergy test had...
do you like it? is it too dark? it's supposedly dark brown, but quite honestly it's all black. (at last it's not as obvious if i forget to brush it in the morning, because you can't see the different colours mixing anymore )

Honestly, could you be pregnant? You've mentioned a number of things over the past few days that make me wonder...

I like your hair color. It suits your fair complexion. I like seeing a picture of you, too. Gives me a better idea of what you look like IRL.

I wonder if anyone else would want to post pics? I'll start, and if you don't feel comfortable, that's cool. Everything I have online is almost 2 years old, but I look exactly the same.

At Lake Louise

Really awesome one with my eyes closed. It's the closest to my everyday look (hair up, no make-up, smile)

Our wedding pic :

Thanks. Our wedding was a planned elopement. It was just the two of us, our officiant, and a photographer by hobby who I found throught the http://www.nikonians.org/Nikonians forum.

I can't tell from your pic that you're 5 months pregnant. You look beautiful. I love your shawl, actually. Looks like an heirloom.

And hopefully, you will be (or already are) pregnant again soon.

okay, here's mine. It hasn't been updated in a while though
http://web.me.com/film.savant/Site/Welcome.html
I'm in there somewhere.

G What a great looking couple you make!

Heck, I haven't been to Banff and it's MY country!

A planned elopement...I am so envious I did not want a wedding but DH's family is very traditional. To elope would have killed her We ended up with a small wedding at the farm and actually, I do recall saying, it was the best time of my life.

Thanks, BaBa! DH is even better looking in person. Seriously, he looks hotter every day. Don't know how he does it.

I love your hair. I always wanted silky, straight hair like that. DD is also beautiful. There's one pic where her eyes look particularly blue. Very pretty.
