  1. Hey just so you know, you can TOTALLY paint while pregnant. Just don't use lead based paint and if you start feeling faint, step away for a while. I helped paint Liliana's room as much as possible but it was tough because it was 9 degrees outside and we couldn't open the windows.

    also, about the nausea, my advice: keep some ginger ale around the house JUST IN CASE. I didn't get sick feeling until 8 weeks and for the first few weeks, the ginger ale helped SO much...then nothing helped, but hopefully you won't get there. ; )

    Have fun at your first OB appointment and at that first ultrasound. Hearing the heartbeat is so amazing.

  2. Oh and another thing...I used to take our weekly belly picture while holding a piece of paper with the number of that corresponding week to keep track. It helped to look back week after totally don't have to do that, but just a thought!
