Time well spent

I believe my time spent at home due to my current situation should be well spent. Why not French? Today, I picked up my ” Living Language Conversational French” book. I found at Bookends/cafe’ last year while in downtown. It’s been interesting because the cassettes are missing to the book which are kinda vital to learning the French language. You know me, I decided to improvise a little. Searched and found a few websites that let you search the French word and has been a great guide to teaching me the pronunciations. These are a few French words I have learned.
Name: Albert origin-French. Pronunciation#1 AL-burt. Pronunciation#2 al-BAIR
Name: Charles origin-French. Pronunciation#1 CHAR’-ulls
Name: Francois origin-French. Pronunciation#1 frahn-swah Pronunciation#2 frah(n)-ZWAH



Leave of Absence

Leave of Absence.

Leave of Absence

Current updates on pregnancy. I had to take a leave of absence due to the severity of my sickness during pregnancy. I have lost quite a bit of weight and the doc says I need to stay home until I get to feeling better. Saltine crackers and gatorade have become my breakfast, lunch and dinner. My next doctor’s appointment is July 18th. I will be 10 weeks tomorrow and counting. I have never slept so much in my life, not losing any sleep here:) I know it will be worth it when I get to see my little gummy bear.

Our gummy bear.

Last week, I went to the doctor to see how our little ” gummy bear” was doing. The baby is healthy and is growing tremendously. It’s amazing how much development can take place in just a week. I could see it’s little heart go thumpity thump, thump. I’m officially 9 weeks and 3 days today. I’ve still had my battle with nausea but we’re working through it. Today, has been the first day in weeks that I’ve been able to keep down food in all honesty. So, it’s been a great day. I’ve lost 6 pounds so far while being pregnant. Looking on the bright side this means I will be the cute prego lady not the swollen, waddling penguin pregnant lady. Further updates to come!

I went to the doctor yesterday…

The doctor said, the baby looks healthy and doing great. It resembled that of a gummy bear. It was so cool seeing the heartbeat. It’s surreal. We’re having a baby! This pregnancy has been different than my first one in alot of ways which has me leaning toward’s it being a boy. For starters, in my first pregnancy I craved nothing but salt, salt, and salt. During this pregnancy I have gained a sweet tooth and feel very tempted around anything pertaining to chocolate. I’m not generally a “sweet tooth” kind of person …but this time around it’s different. We will see…later updates will be posted.

Today was crawl up on the couch and hope there is a trashcan nearby kinda day….

Today, I wasn’t feeling so good. This pregnancy has been different than my first one. During the first time around I was sick 24/7 even up until the 9mo’s period. This pregnancy, the nausea comes and goes. One week, I may feel great the next I feel like absolute poo. I’ve had alot of heartburn as well. I just pray tomorrow lends me a good day. I see the doctor in 2 more days. I may even have an ultrasound. I will update more later……
