We've had a nice weekend so far. Friday night I felt just horrible. Probably the worst I have felt yet. I sent Clint to get me some Poweraid thinking that maybe I am dehydrated. I just can't seem to drink plain water *gag*, so I've been sipping blue Poweraid instead. I can't say that it has made much of a difference, but just maybe I feel a tiny bit better.

Yesterday, Saturday, we went to a Kids Day at the civic center. I made myself go even though I wasn't feeling up to it. Several friends had booths, and I wanted to get out of the house to do something together. As soon as we walked in I hear "Melanie's here!!" and next thing I know everybody is at my side asking how I was doing. Clint thought that was funny. I hadn't been to any playgroup stuff in about a month, so I hadn't seen anyone in a while. Of course I got told I looked terrible (which is probably true!!) It's nice to know that I was missed - even a little bit. haha. Valerie had a great time for the little while we were there. Afterwards we got something to eat and did a little shopping at Sam's. I was completely worn out for the rest of the day.

Today we are working on cleaning this messy house. Clint has been a big help lately. I bitched at him big time for sitting around all day long one Sunday a while back. He literally sat in front the computer from the time he got up until 4 or 5:00. I feel so bad most days. And on top of that I feel guilty for not keeping up with the housework. I just can't do it. I don't expect him to scrub the floors but he could wash some clothes... especially when most of them are his. He has really been helping lately and I have to say how much I appreciate it. I know he doesn't like doing it, but really -- who does?? It still needs to be taken care of.

Last week I rented one of those fetal dopplers to listen to the baby's heartbeat. I had one with Valerie and it was so neat. It got here Friday!! It only took me a minute or two to find our little shamrock's heart galloping away. It certainly is reassuring and well worth the $25!!! I'll probably keep it for two months or until I can feel those wonderful little kicks.


  1. I'm glad you got out of the house although you felt so bad. Thank goodness, it's about time that Clint helped out some. So true though, who enjoys the housework, but unfortunately it won't be done just by wishing.

    I've had an awful time posting at LJT and last night, it totally would not let me post at all. I hope it is a passing thing, but the difficulties have been occurring for months, but yesterday was the worst. Julie Anne over there is a little over 9 weeks and has been having terrible morning sickness. You're about 10 weeks, right? You need to get one of those ticker's up on your blog. So we can tell how you are progressing.
