One down..two to go.

That would be trimesters. I went to the dr. today and found out that I am 12 weeks today! Hallelujah! I really would like to bask in the joy of being pregnant, but it is very hard when one feels sooooooo bad. I am happy at the thought that some of the morning sickness "might" subside. It's not likely, but it's always good to have hope, right? I also have not gained one, single, solitary ounce. I'm still down the couple of pounds I lost at first and for that I am glad. Pregnancy seems to be the only diet that works for me!

We also heard a heartbeat. Another cause for celebration! The little heartbeat was 162. Sounds like a girl heart to me! The Mad Monk is remaining hopeful for a hyper little boy!

That would be the update for today. Blessings to all!

Still pukey. Still on the couch. I did manage to get three loads of laundry done with a crippled washing machine (not spinning correctly), so I'm pretty proud. Oh! I also managed to cook a pot of hamburger soup today as well. I have to cook around 11 am or I just can't do it. These are major accomplishments for a woman who lays on the couch most days moaning and trying to talk herself out of throwing up!

The Mad Monk is plum worn out! He has been doing triple time around here. He works his normal hours plus he cleans, shops and has run out for every craving I've had. He juggles work, spending time with the littles and a myriad of other things and doesn't complain one ounce. He is THE man. He is MY man. And for that, I am thankful.

Sorry for the absence...

This blog has been dysfunctional as of late and I feel as if owe you all (all two of you) an explanation as to why I haven't been blogging.

Let's put it this way...I still have 6 1/2 more months to make excuses. Yes, tis' true...I am expecting again! Number five is being knit together as I write. Our little blessing is also wreaking havoc on MommaMonk where morning sickness is concerned. Or should I say 24/7 sickness. I seriously have to consider on a daily basis...when I eat this am I willing to throw it up???

Anyway, I'll be in and out for awhile, but keep comin' back. I'm already almost a third of the way done!!
