Things have been so, so much better here in the lovely second trimester. I haven't felt nauseous for a couple of weeks now, which has made life so much easier from day to day. It was getting so old not being able to think of anything to make my family for dinner that I thought I could also stomach down, and not being able to do anything with Eva after I got home from work. Luckily, I have the world's best husband who never once complained about having random collections of odd food for supper or about having to give Eva her bath because I couldn't lean over the tub. And we got through it.
And now my appetite and energy store are growing just as quickly as my belly. There is only one more full week of school, and I am 20 papers away from 11 weeks of the last summer Eva and I have together just the two of us. I have visions of days at pool, visits to the park, bikes in the driveway, beautiful sidewalk chalk masterpieces, and bubbles. Lots of bubbles.
We are only a couple weeks away from seeing our little potato (that's the size the baby is now) again via sonogram and hopefully finding out if Evalee will have a baby brother or baby sister!
The only thing that is still a constant annoyance is my back pain. Sometimes I wake up with it and I have trouble walking all day, other days I can make it all the way through without any pain at all. I wish I could find a pattern. If it continues, Rita has recommended that I try a chiropractic treatment. We'll see how things go in the weeks to come!
