Well, I guess I am now about 5 1/2 weeks into my pregnancy. Its still very early, but I'm feeling great! I had two days last week where I felt slightly nauseous, but I haven't felt that since. I''m hopeful that morning sickness won't start at all. That would be really nice. My mom had 4 kids and says she didn't feel sick for any of them. My doctor says thats a good sign that I may not either. Of course, morning sickness might be a good thing as it would prevent me from overeating. I haven't had a problem eating anything thus far. My doctor says I need 1800 calories a day, so I'm trying to be really careful. I've been trying to eat a variety of foods and get all my fruits and vegetables. I have also been exercising every day. If I can keep this up I should be ok. I have the potential to gain a massive amount of weight if I don't pay close attention. 25-35 pounds is the range I'm supposed to gain. I'm shooting for 30 maximum. I think that will be easy enough to lose again later.
We received a nice present of baby books from Jami and Priscilla the other day. Thank you! I have to say though, I don't really think we need a book of 50,001 baby names. Can you imagine how hard picking a name will be now? Darren already had horrible names picked out. This book is going to make it so much worse! He has already said we should just close our eyes and point to one. Very scary!
