Wonder Drugs to the Rescue!

We went to my first OB appointment last week. I know, I'm already in the second trimester, but that's the first opening they had. Everything looked good and the heartbeat sounded strong and fast. I'm due Aug. 9. I had still been having constant nausea and sickness, so my doctor prescribed Zofran... and RELIEF! I'd recommend it 100 times over to anyone having to deal with morning sickness. In fact, I think my prescription of Zofran will be my official Valentine this year. I've already kissed the bottle a few times. Sorry Mike. haha :) So anyway, I've been feeling much, much better although still extremely tired some days. But I'm not complaining - I'll take tired over nausea/throwing up anyday!

My doctor said we'll have an ultrasound done around 18 weeks (in another month or so) and we will hopefully find out what we're having then. Can't wait to share the news!

Our trip to Kentucky a couple of weeks ago was great! We saw lots of friends and family. A wonderful week! We ended up getting out of there the day before all that ice hit KY. I'll post pictures from our trip as soon as I find the time (and energy!).

So glad you're feeling better! Wish I had that Zofran when I was pregnant with Maren.

Case I am so happy for you! RELIEF at last! I had so much fun at your mom and dad's house. I sure miss hanging out with you. AK is too cute, I loved when she was talking in her soft voice to the other little ones. Take care!
