I keep telling myself only a few more days...you can make it! Casey comes home Friday night and I have a plan already. I'm so fortunate because Dad will be in town too. That night everyone is going to Tim's softball game, then to the airport to pick up Casey, and then to dinner. Dinner is when we'll pop the news. A few weeks ago I made everyone shirts according to their new title. I made 6 shirts with cute little iron-on transfer letters. One says Uncle Casey, another says Aunt Kaitlyn. There is a Grandma and a Grandpa, and then a Daddy and "Baby Bumb". My idea is to pass them out saying I had picked something up for everyone. I'm super excited, and the shirts turned out great.
Aside from the day I thought eggs were from the devil I've only had one day of "sickness". I did not feel human on Monday. I felt green! Thankfully I never vomitted but I sure thought I was going to, and it didn't go away. The terrible feeling lasted all day. I thought to bring crackers with me to school from home, but they were gourmet crackers and just did not sit well. Mom came to the rescue with a whole box of saltines! Those saved me! I'm keeping them in my desk for those moments of uneasiness. I also have a refrigerator stocked with Canada Dry Ginger Ale! Tuesday was better than Monday, and by today I was totally back to normal. I consider myself lucky to not have full blown morning sickness all the time. After my experience Monday I am A-ok with waiting a while to experience it again.
Tomorrow I have my last appointment with my specialist. It will be my 8 week appointment. I can't believe it's been 2 months already. It is unreal. We have been amazed by the weekly sonograms we have gotten, and the leaps and bounds little Dot is making every week is incredible. We are thrilled to be able to start spreading the news. I'm glad we made the decision to wait a while before we tell people. I just think it's the right thing to do. I can't wait to update with how Friday goes.
