Ugh....I feel sick!!

I just want to start off by saying that I LOVE candy corn. All you see this time of year is candy, candy and more candy. However, the candy is NOT loving me. I've had so much sugar since Thursday that I am actually physically ill. That's right. My stomach is in complete rebellion. I'm sure the baby has been having a wonderful time, but his mother is not doing as well!! Aaron and I managed to work at two Halloween carnivals today, and I just kept on eating candy like it was going out of style. Why? Why?? Why??? Seriously! Right now the thought of even one candy corn makes me gag. I know you all feel that way too!!! I figure that candy is kind of like the devil. It's all yummy and sweet for a little while. Then you realize what you're doing to your body and your teeth and you come to your senses. Wouldn't it be great if we could JUST SAY NO!!!!

Have a happy Halloween anyway! Don't let your teeth rot out...and don't jump out and scare people. I HATE that!!!

I really do think I have baby fever....

Okay, I'm starting to get really excited about being pregnant. At first, it was pretty much like it wasn't real. It's not like I knew what it felt like or anything. Then I had NO symptoms of even being morning sickness, cravings, or nausea of any kind. I am in my second trimester and still have no symptoms. However, there are differences. I've had some semi-cravings. I really like Ranch dressing, but that's about it. Occasionally I want ice cream, but I pass. Being lactose intolerant is not a good thing!! I am definitely gaining a belly and some weight. It's not like I didn't think that would happen, but it's still kind of surprising as it does happen. But here's the big difference.... I am drawn to all kinds of baby stuff. I watch baby stuff on tv. I look up cribs and baby furniture on the internet. I am counting down until I can HOPEFULLY know the sex of the baby. I've even looked into some of those old wives' tales to try to know the sex ahead of time. So crazy!! I decided to pass on the Clorox thing, just in case of explosions! I thought I'd give a bit of info for those who are excited along with me. Others of you may feel free to check out now. I am 112 days pregnant. I have 168 days to go until our due date of March 26. I'm in my 15th/almost 16th week. I have gained 7 pounds. I have my sonogram appointment to check that all is okay and see the sex on November 1. Hooray! I'm sure I'll have something to blog about after that point. Now on to other things........

School is good. I like my classes this year. They are EXTREMELY excited about the fact that I am pregnant. It's funny. They are smart and overall very well-behaved. I feel so blessed!

Aaron and I are super. He's excited about the baby. He wants a girl, but whatever is fine. :o) I think that's sweet. He'll be a super good daddy.

That's all I have for now..... Love you all!!!!!!!!!
