Making me smile

I send Jack out to the mailbox every afternoon and one day last week he was distracted by the bees in the clover. So he laid himself down in the yard watching them for awhile (and I think he was thinking of catching one!) and then picked me a clover flower bouquet.

On a side note, I had Dave take this photo and it reminds me of just how much work taking blog photos is. I would have cleaned off the water spots on the siding, made sure the glass was on a clean (non Jack painted) part of the bench, then carefully arranged the flowers.

I knew there was a reason blogging seems challenging sometimes! LOL

Not making me smile:
Constant, persistant nausea for 2 days. What gives? Ugh. It feels about 50% better this morning, but I still feel it kind of lurking there.

I threw up non stop with Jack and I consider it a major blessing that there has been no barf this time.

I am really hoping to keep it that way. Oy.

  2. I finally found relief from sea band bracelets from the drug store. They apply just a bit of pressure and helped tremendously.

  3. It really does take a lot of work to get good blog photos, doesn't it? So cute how Jack just lays down and stops to watch the bees! Hope your nausea goes away and stays away.

  5. For reasons not based in science I really believe that Nausea is a sign that the baby is sticking. So I am actually happy for you. Not that it's any kind of comfort when you want to puke! Hang in there!

  6. Hang in there friend! This too shall pass as they say. Try eating some crackers in the morning before you get out of bed and move around - then make yourself a bit of bit of cream of rice before you go on with your day. This might help!

  7. Jack's flowers are so sweet! I was told that nausea is a good sign that the placenta is developing normally. Hang in there, Sarah -- we are all rooting for you and baby.

    P.S. I thought of something I had had to add to your vintage baby quilt kit, but it's going to the post office today.

  8. The naesea is actually a good thing... means the baby is doing good. When i got pregnant with my second i had bad nausea but it let me know the baby was doing okay. A friend didn't have any symptoms and her baby was lost early on. That's one positive note about it. Cute picture. They can be so thoughtful at times can't they.

  9. This post cracks me up, because just last night my husband and I were looking at a relative's garden blog, and there were blooms that should have been deadheaded in one photo, and a bunch of weeds in another, and my husband turned to me and said "You'd never post pictures like that"! And he's right. Taking blog pictures is a pain in the butt.
    Glad to hear there's no barf!

  11. Take feeling icky as a good sign. I am sending you lots of prayers, I as know what you are going through trying to have baby #2... I had IVF last year after many years of trying, and now I have 6-month-old twins. I'm sending positive thoughts your way! Hope you are on your feet soon, Mama!

  12. We're back home after being without internet access for a week while on vacation. Your blog was one of the first I visited because I had to know how you and the baby are doing. You've been on my mind. I'm glad to hear of the latest reports. Whew. I found a vintage reproduction sand pail and shovel with fabulous graphics. I posted it on the blog. Hugs!

  14. Well, that brings back memories of hiding in my classroom until the halls cleared because my morning sickness was also motion sickness. Ever try to not move your head for a few hours every evening. These kids owe us Big-Time! I am trying to post more to give you something to read....hang in there!
