I got a little sick at work and they told me to come in and see a doctor. So, they hooked me up to an IV to put fluids into me. And then, the very nice lady doctor asked me if I'd like to try to hear you! Well, of course I did! So, she put the speaker thing on my belly and, for just a second, we heard the very fast heartbeat of a baby. It's so weird that babies' heartbeats are so much faster than grown-ups. And then, as we listened, there was a "sploosh" sound and the doctor said, "Well, he just kicked and swam away!"

It was very exciting! I just wish your dad or sister had been able to hear it too.

I'm still getting sick all the time. The doctor is putting me on medicine that will hopefully stop me from getting so sick so often. The problem is that it makes me sleepy. I forgot that part and took a pill at school and then almost fell asleep in the middle of a Social Studies lesson. True, it was a lesson about the Homestead Act which isn't terribly exciting - unless you're Laura Ingalls Wilder. But still, I've taught more boring stuff and not needed a nap in the middle of it.

Anyway, more about you!

You're swimming!
The baby has begun moving inside the womb although it's too small for mom to notice. Most of the joints are formed now - elbow, wrist, knee, shoulder, and ankle as well as the hands, fingers, feet and toes.

We skipped church again today because I couldn't stop throwing up long enough to get dressed. Emmy may not be totally thrilled about things yet, but she is enjoying missing church.

Your dad and Emmy went to a barbecue across the street for dinner tonight. I stayed home because I was still being sick. People say it's a good sign that I'm so sick - it's a sign that, hormonally, this is a very strong pregnancy.

We told your dad's parents tonight on the phone - they were having my parents over for dinner. They are all so very excited about you.

And so are we.

Last time I went to Fred Meyer, I got a wee bit sick in the Seafood area. To the point of throwing up into a plastic produce bag filled with cucumbers.

Today was my first day back to the scene of the crime.

So there I was, minding my own business in the Dairy section. Suddenly, Trainee Rob appeared.

"I've been sent over by the Meat and Seafood department to ask if there's anything you need from there. I'll be happy to get it for you and you can wait in the Bread aisle where it's safe."

The last three days have been filled with an upset stomach and rampant hunger.

I'm now wearing those wristbands for seasickness. I'm not sure they help with the nausea. But they're so annoying that they are distracting me from feeling like I want to throw up.

It could all mean nothing...
