Pregnancy Update

It's been a long six or so weeks, but I am finally starting to feel a little bit better. It was apparently wishful thinking on my part that I wouldn't have any morning sickness this time. Luckily, my mother and mother-in-law have been able to come and help out with the boys so that I could just sleep and work on not throwing up. I don't know what I would have done without them. I met a woman Sunday who had nineteen weeks of sickness with both her pregnancies. I'm counting my blessings.

At one point during the worst of my nausea, I emailed an OB friend asking what my options were on helping me to feel better. One factor to check for was twins, so she let me go down to her office during her lunch break for a quick sonogram. No twins, but very likely a boy. I'm talking Evan into the name Roken Daniel.

In other news, we have decided to have a homebirth, and that decision was made kind of official today since I picked up my records from my OB's office to deliver to my new midwife. We have our first appointment with her this Thursday. Her name is Michele Fitzgerald. I'm excited and feel like we are in great hands.
