8 Weeks


Yes, you guessed it: we're up to kidney-bean-size. And feeling very ill. That banana I just ate isn't doing the trick. I've got oyster crackers stashed in my bedside table. Brushing my teeth makes me gag horribly. Can I manage another month of this? Yes. Also, relieved to be feeling these symptoms, it means it's working the way it is supposed to. Baby-making here.

At least you know you are sick for a reason right? I hope you get over it very soon. That metallic taste and gagging reflux is the worst!

I too considered all my morning sickness a blessing AND a sign that all is working well. I'm so excited for the newest little Mangum. Have you found out if there is more than one kidney bean in there? :)

Yes, yes, the good work - good luck making that baby!

Elizabeth said...

I have my stash of crackers also.
Yeah for your little bean baby!

I remember those oyster crackers well along with white only bagels- whatever keeps you sane. Your right at least you know everything is ok- it seemed like relief in someways for me. Hope you feel better soon!

Yuck! But yay for MS for that same reason :) I'm sure it's rough to still take care of your littles. Hang in there...

I love the visuals. . . a cute little Mangum kidney bean! Sorry about the sickies. . . coke icees from the gas station or a smoothie always did the trick for me. Not healthy, I know, but it stayed in.

The process is rather unpleasant, and I'm not sure why it has to be that way, but the miracle of making a person just never gets dimmer does it? Wow.

Hooray for your little bean! Hope the sickness eases soon.
