The Good Report {Pregnancy Edition}

Baby #2 is due in October. Maybe you are one of those gals who feels better than ever when you are with child..... just a teensy bit tired, but certainly not dry heaving at every turn. Lucky (and did I mention I hate you). I'm trying to focus on the something good while in the depths of morning sickness hell. Not an easy task, but here goes:


1. Fine....at least I can get pregnant.
2. Eating every two hours (in hopes of stifling yucky "I'm going to hurl" feeling). Actually, not as fun as it sounds. Moving on to #3
3. No trouble sleeping.
4. Excitement from friends and family.
5. I can't stomach sweets/candy/dessert which is good for general health. Trust me. This one only happens during pregnancy.
6. Kindness of strangers will begin as soon as my belly is obvious. People really love pregnant ladies!

  5. Congrats! Perhaps the knowledge that soon it will be over and you will have a new little baby in your arms will help. We have tried for almost 6 years to have another baby with no luck. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be throwing up- it would be worth it! (there are the moments that only having 1 child are oh so nice too!) :)

  6. Congratulations! That is SO exciting. Maybe he (or she) will be born Oct. 20. Then we'd share a birthday! October's a good month!

  14. Congratulations!! I can't wait to find out what you're having! I'm so sorry to hear you're so sick! I can definitely sympathize, I had to go to the ER during my first trimester because I was throwing up so much... and it lasted for all 9 months! But you are so right about people loving pregnant ladies! I didn't mind that part at all. :) And I couldn't eat sweets either (also only when I was pregnant)

  17. Hey Leslie! Congrats! My morning sickness kicked in about 6 weeks, then lasted until about 20! It sucks, I hear ya! See if your doc will write you a prescription for Zofran. It worked great for me....only problem is you gotta keep taking stool softners with it....a small price to pay! Good Luck!

  18. Hi Leslie, Abby turned me on to your blog. Love your dresses! Anywho, congrats on your pregnancy! Just want to throw a potential remedy for your nausea out there... "Sea Bands." I wore them 24/7 when I was pregnant and they stopped my nausea. BUT, I didn't have any dry heaving/vomiting so I can't guarantee they will work for you. But it may be worth a try! You can find them at most pharmacies. Take care!
