pregnancy update

so, everyone keeps asking me how i'm doing and how i'm feeling, etc. so here you go!
...
so far, so good. i haven't felt sick that much and have only barfed twice (once after speed walking a mile, while already not feeling so great -- not a good idea anyways (sorry kristi, one of these days i'll do it again!!); and once right after taking care of a barfing aidan)
...
i feel a little sick in the morning right when i wake up, but it usually goes away pretty fast once i start waking up. and sometimes i feel a little sick at night.
...
the thing that is driving me CRAZY is that my whole entire body itches. seriously, i rememeber being itchy when i was pregnant with aidan, but i don't rememeber it starting this soon. its really starting to bug me!
...
i've been having hot flashes, yikes!! i had these with aidan as well, so i was expecting them!
...
and so far i've actually LOST 4 pounds! hehe, which gives me full rights to eat this for dessert tonight!! (yum, a sliced banana, topped with 2 scoops of vanilla and covered in caramel syrup -- working at baskin robbins for 4 years has its benefits, i can still scoop up some yummy ice cream treats!!) you know you want some, i know i want more!!! this is my favorite part of being pregnant!
(if that was too much information for you, SORRY!!) come over and i'll scoop you some ice cream and make it up to you!

way too much information... the whole part abot being pregnant was just a little overboard... I'm deeply offended or not

Oh man, the itching is horrible!!! I had it really bad towards the middle to end of my pregnancy. it was so bad at times i wanted to just scream!

I loved being pregnant. I got sick the whole pregnancy, more at first. But, it was all worth it! we waited 6 years for our little princess! I would do it all over again!

Keep us all updated! post pictures too!

I am glad that you aren't feeling too sick. With my last two pregnancies I lost weight in the begining too (mostly due to throwing up). That ice cream looks so good!

look at those perfect little balls of ice cream! expert!

glad you're doing so great.

you and teammate with the itching, yikes! me, not so much. just watch out with the scratching...speeds along the stretch marks. well, maybe not, not everyone has freaky skin like mine.

i want ice cream. i scream for ice cream!

I was horribly itchy with both my pregnancies. But I would take that any day over throwing up. So glad it hasn't been too bad for you!

Good work on the ice cream. And you're welcome to come walking again anytime- hopefully I won't make you barf again!

You may actually have something called "pups" I had it with my 1st pregnancy...every women gets itchy, I am normal itchy this pregnancy...but my 1st was UNBEARABLE!!! People said yeah that's normal to be itchy...but it wasnt normal...anyway I had special meds and things...so if it gets bad call me and I will tell you all I know about it...I hope you dont for your sake...

And I HATE you for losing 4 lbs...

Yum, ice cream! This is what I miss about being pregnant. Unfortunately the urge doesn't stop when the baby comes. In fact, I remember when Andrew was born I felt famished at the hospital. I ate everything that came in my room (my family was afraid to visit).
