Peyton's Pumpkins

    Lindsey showed me a comment that I left on her blog when she was 23 weeks pregnant with Luke in 2011. I told her, "When I'm pregnant, I'll be posting three times a week!" Since today is my three week mark (3 weeks since I found out I was pregnant!) I'm apparently already 7 posts behind. I told her today that I didn't have anything to say that often, at least while not much is happening yet, but I was able to come up with these notes.
   Today was my first day having to call out of work after getting sick in the shower this morning. Luckily it was just a lot of water, but still not pleasant. I weighed myself today (113.2 compared to 112.8 on 11/10) which is pretty great considering I thought I would be 116 again by now since I feel like all I do is eat and sleep when I'm not at work. And even at work, one girl was commenting about how every time she looked over, I was eating again. However, when I really thought about all I had eaten, it didn't really sound like that much. I can't go more than three or four hours without eating, or I feel sick. That's probably why I usually start to feel sick around 2am. I'll just have to start getting up then for a cup of cereal if it means getting better sleep. And sleeping on my back is the only thing that is comfortable, except maybe a 45 degree side angle, but not fully on either side. I have been taking a lot of naps, partly because of how looking at the TV or computer screen too long makes me feel gross with a headache. I've been forcing myself to do loops around our tiny neighborhood and last night Michael went for a good walk with me (out of our neighborhood and into the one behind ours). We went around 6:30, but it seriously felt like 10pm. Stupid day light savings.. I haven't been eating the healthiest, but Michael seems happy about that since he was worried I would eat "too healthy" and somehow mess up the baby's development. I told him that eating chips and cookies would be what messes it up. Plus eating better will probably help me feel better, so tonight I bought my favorite pear salads with grapes and cantaloupe. Michael asked me to buy him some salad too!! I have not currently cared for scrambled eggs or bananas like I normally eat for breakfast at work, so I'll have to find a good banana bread recipe for the three browning bananas on the kitchen counter. I have stopped drinking Diet Sprite and Ginger Ale and have just been sticking to regular water.

  To Jacquie, thank you for being patient on these overdue pictures of your most precious child. Did I mention that Peyton calls me "Raysh" (Rach) now?! It was great hearing her say lots of words last time I saw her. I'll have to write them all down next time. They aren't full words, but they are understandable. These pictures were taken in the field in front of the Gainesville Church of God on Halloween morning.
