10 1/2 weeks

I'm 10 weeks 5 days and sooo ready for the second trimester. Every time I think I'm done being sick, I get sick again. The nausea is mostly under control, but the throwing up may never stop. At least it's only once a day, at the most. I know there are people who throw up six or seven times a day during the first trimester.

I recently started thinking about all the gear that comes with a baby. Oh my is it overwhelming. I'm determined to just get the basics and buy as much used as possible - especially when it comes to clothing. But then I see the cutest sweater and I can't imagine NOT having it a year from now. I suppose it's a good thing Jonathan gave me a budget as soon as the pregnancy test showed a positive sign.

There is a part of me that feels like these next few months are my last moments of freedom. I don't think my life will end in May when the baby comes, but it will definitely be a lot different. Last Thursday I spent the entire day in bed. I read 2 1/2 books and slept a lot. I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen after Blueberry joins us! Jonathan and I are planning to do a small local trip early next year. It will be a good chance to hang out and relax. I think we may head up to Seattle. There are quite a few things we want to do in the area and if we have the time we have lots of friends and family up there.

I can't believe Halloween is this Saturday. I'm really, really excited for the Christmas season to begin. Normally I don't love the Christmas holidays, but this year I can't wait for November/December. I have no idea why, but I am already looking for items to decorate the house and I've started my Christmas shopping.

It's time to eat dinner. I've been eating pretty much constantly lately; no wonder people gain more weight then they're supposed to when pregnant!
