The Rich Brothers Part 2

Some of you may remember that awhile back I did a post about the Rich brothers. Now that they are age 5 and almost 4 I thought I would do a continuation of some things the Rich Brothers have said and done lately:-)

1. This past Sunday Bubby (aka James) wore 4 pairs of underwear to church. I didn't realize it until some friends invited us to go out to eat after church and Bubby needed to go to the bathroom. I helping him I discovered what he had done. When I asked him why he would do such a thing... he said he wanted to wear all the new spider man underwear I had just bought.

2. Isaac is very interested in cars knows just about every make and model he see's when we're out and about.

3. Isaac is also very electronically inclined, He can operate the dryer, the tv/dvd , the sound system, my cell phone, and lots of other things!

Pregnancy Update

I have decided that I want to keep better records of my pregnancies, so I am going to write a short update every so often.

3 weeks~ positive pregnancy test, began going in for regular blood work
4 weeks~ Doctor decides because of my previous miscarriages to put me on progesterone, aspirin, and high doses of folic acid
5 weeks~ blood work continues and looks very promising with great HCG levels detected
6 weeks~severe morning sickness/vomiting began and grew worse
7 weeks~miserable with constant vomiting, we felt comfortable letting the family know I was pregnant at this point!
8 weeks~miserable and dehydrated from constant vomiting.
9 weeks~ got a drug called zofran and still felt very yucky but only vomited occasionally
10 weeks~still on zofran and feeling yucky but made it back to church for the first time in several weeks!
12 weeks~ some improvement but still feeling tired and yucky
14 weeks~ major improvement though not functioning up to par.
16 weeks~ took a weekend trip to Charleston for our 6th anniversary and went off zofran the same week.
17 weeks~ completely back to normal and functioning with plenty of energy!
18 weeks~ found out we were having a girl named Mercy, later in the week woke up in the middle of the night with Kidney stones, had surgery to place a stint
19 weeks~ had stint removed, tired all week
20 weeks~ back to functioning with plenty of energy again!
21 weeks~ weight gain up to date is 11lbs

*I hope I didn't scare anyone from wanting to have a baby with my record keeping! Most people don't go through anywhere near that much being pregnant. It is always SO WORTH any suffering I have to endure!

*Remember: The fruit of the womb is HIS reward!
