So today is Sunday, and I just wrote the Hi Daddy letter for Friday. I wasn't gonna write it until DH started complaining like a baby and whining that he didn't get his letter. I got home Friday night from Washington...from Thursday night till the time I got on the flight on Friday I had threw up 6 times. Once Thursday night, once Friday morning and 4 times in the taxi on the way to the airport. D.elta calls me with an automated message on Friday morning saying that your flight scheduled to leave at 3:59 p.m. has been cancelled, however don't worry as we have taken care of you and you are now schedule to leave at 9:59 p.m. I was pissed! What kind of taking care of is that. So I had them change my flight but it was to a different airport that was an hour away....but it left at 4:15 p.m. and I was too ready to go home so I took it. So in the taxi I felt it coming and politely told the cab driver...I'm about to throw up but don't worry because I have a bag. He was like okay okay no problem ma'am. So from that point till I arrive at the airport I threw up 4 times. I apologized to the taxi driver as I got out and he was so nice. He was like no problem ma'am, thank you for being clean. I was so weak trying to stand in the line to get my ticket that I sat down on the floor in line. The security line was another wait and I wanted to sit down....but I managed to stand. I make it to W.endy's and got some vanilla ice cream and a plain baked potato and just prayed that it would stay down and give me some energy...and it did. So I've been taking a tally at how many times I threw up with this pregnancy....I went from 5 to 11 in a matter of a day. But the funny thing is...I took it all in stride...didn't get mad that I was throwing up so much or anything.....but still wore a smile when I could. Now on to Saturday....I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a ton of bricks. My head hurt, my body ached, my nose was stuffed and I just felt horrible. So after dealing with this until about 7 p.m. I finally call the doctor to ask him what I can take for a head cold and he told me T.ylenol Cold so we went to W.algreens to pick it up. I was really trying to stick it out because I didn't want to take any meds but both nostrils were completely stuffed. So.... I took the T.ylenol Cold, bought a vaporizer, put some V.icks V.apor rub on my chest but still wasn't able to breath too good through the night. So I've spent my weekend in the bed...not feeling too much better today than I did yesterday, but baby is doing fine. I was kind of worried about her with all my sneezing and hard blowing of my nose but the doppler picked up her heartbeat right away! Thank God!
So thats why the Hi Daddy post is late...
But any who....here it is:
Friday, June 26th
Today I am 15 weeks old…that’s almost 4 months old (Mommy told me you wasn’t grasping the weeks too much so I needed to tell you in months too)! I am now about 4 inches long about the size of a Kit Kat finger (the regular size not the King size) and I weigh almost 2 ounces now.
Mommy may be able to feel me kick now, but she probably doesn’t realize it’s me and thinks it’s only gas or something. But I’ve been having my own little party in my amniotic sac. Guess what else Daddy, my head is now resting on my neck instead of directly on my shoulders like Igor. Oh yeah Daddy I’m starting to get this hair growing on my eyelids and over my eyes and through my intense investigation I found out they are called eyelashes and eyebrows…cool huh? My hair on my head has started to grow as well….we know if I take after mommy I will be bald for the entire first year so I’m hoping I got your genes when it comes to that!
You know what else daddy…I can see the light. My eyes are still sealed shut but now they are able to sense light. My eyes and ears finally look like a real baby now! Oh yeah guess what else I can do Daddy…hiccup! As I practice sucking and swallowing sometimes I may get the hiccups…it will be really cool when you can see mommy’s belly jumping when I get the hiccups later.
Make sure Mommy gets enough nutritious foods and fluids to support my growth over the next month as I will grow faster than ever! I know I’ve been giving her a hard time and making her throw up, so hopefully she can get a lot of nutritious foods down!
Well Daddy that’s enough on me for the week. Take care of mommy and give her a big hug and kiss for me!
Your Little Minnie Me
