    I am starting to feel a lot better. Thanks for asking. When I hit week 12, most of my nausea and food aversions were suddenly gone. I’m still having mild nausea, but it’s nothing compared to what it what. It’s nice to be able to eat and cook again!

    Ten years ago, I was single and living in the city I live now. It would be a safe guess that I went to brunch with my parents, who live in town.

    Saturday, we plan to go to an Easter event (egg hunt, bunnies to pet, etc.) at the church where Ethan goes to school.

    Sunday, we’ll have an egg hunt at home first thing in the morning and Ethan will get a few small gifts. Then we’ll go to the zoo where my parents will likely join us. This is becoming a tradition for us, as we’ve gone the past two years. Later, we’ll be going out to dinner with my parents. I hope to spend the afternoon sleeping.

    We always have a hard time eating them all, so I didn’t bother this year. Ethan’s class decorated eggs today in class, so I consider myself off the hook. I don’t think he cares anyway. He’s all about the hunting for the plastic eggs and enjoying the candy.

    Thanks for the additional responses!

    TwoSapphires, I’m 13 weeks. I’ll be 18 weeks when we (hopefully) find out. :)

    We had the same weather. Over the weekend it was warm and reached 80 degrees Sunday. Yesterday, it snowed (and melted thankfully!). At the time, Ethan was looking out the window and exclaimed “What’s that stuff falling from the sky!!”. Even a 4 year old knows this weather just isn’t right.

    I’m just nearing the end of my first trimester and eating was definitely a challenge. At 12 weeks, I’m starting to feel much much better. Thankfully, baby is so tiny at first that he/she needs very little to thrive. As TwoSapphires mentioned, just eat what you can manage for now and continue to take your vitamins. Congrats and good luck!

    I didn’t feel like cooking this year and neither did my mother, so we are going out to eat. The menu has some great pasta choices, so I may have Easter manicotti or lasagna ;)

    We went to a nearby park egg hunt over the weekend. They had everything very well organized and divided up by age groups, letting the under 3 go first, then 4-5 and so on, so the little ones had equal opportunity to find some eggs. The parents didn’t even go in the egg area except if they had babies that needed help. I was also worried about the craziness, but everyone was nice and normal and drama free! Most of the eggs were filled with trinkets rather than candy and they were limited to 20 each, so it wasn’t as overwhelming as buckets of candy would be.

    A neighbor was telling me this morning about 2 other egg hunts this weekend at churches on our street. If the weather is nice, we’ll probably go to one of them. Ethan had so much fun at the first egg hunt, I think he’d be excited to go again. Plus, it would be an opportunity to see some neighbors.

    Easter morning, Ethan will have an egg hunt in the house with his allergy safe candy. We don’t always do community egg hunt, but the home one is a given every year.

    Thank you! I’m glad you all like so many of the names, but this isn’t helping me narrow things down :p So many choices. I should find out the gender on May 21st. At least then we should be able to cut the name choices in half (assuming baby cooperates).

    Girls are harder for me because there are a lot more names that I like. Maybe …

    I think Maggie goes well with your other girls’ names. Not sure about the middle name, but you seem to have a longer middle name theme going. My brain just isn’t coming up with anything right now.

    I’ve never been a fan of Jesse or Jessie (Ironically, my husband’s dog is named Jessie), but I’ve met as many boy Jesses as girl Jessies so I think it’s fine to use for either gender.

    Thanks for the responses. I’ve axed middle names that I thought clashed with our last name, so I don’t think that should be an issue. We’re still not 100% on the girl’s first name, but everyone seems to think this one will be a girl, including Ethan. Hopefully, we’ll figure it out before baby arrives :)

    Those are nice names together.

    I’m not sure about middle names, but these would be my first name choices paired with what first came to mind for the middle spot.

    What kind of privileges do you take away for a young child? Ethan recently lied to me a few times and I was having trouble thinking of something that would be immediate enough time-wise for him to connect the consequences. He has TV time and sometimes plays on the computer, but we didn’t have anything planned in the near future so it seemed weird to take away something I hadn’t yet told him he could have. I should also add that taking away afternoon TV time is really more of a punishment for me since I then don’t get a break ;) Any other ideas?

    I think initials spelling neutral words are fine. My initials were/are JAR. I always liked that they spelled a word. Honestly, people never knew my initials unless we had a specific conversation about it so it never caused me any issues. I wouldn’t change a name combo I loved unless the initials had a negative connotation.

    PS – Not sure what’s going on, but I had to login about 5 times in a row to post this!

    My doctor put me on anti-nausea meds for this pregnancy, too. It helped a lot. I tried other things like sea-bands and ginger ale without luck.

    I was an architect and had just been at a new job for a few months. I had started on my 27th b-day in January. Definitely not my first job, but it was the one I stayed at the longest.

    Yesterday, I had an ultrasound and got to see my little bambino moving around in there. It was so sweet :) At 10 weeks, the baby is starting to resemble a baby. At my 7 week ultrasound they found a subchorionic hematoma, but it appears my body has already absorbed it, which is great news.

    I’ve also had two dinnertimes this week where I haven’t felt sick. Honestly, that’s very exciting for me! I’ve been feeling quite sick this pregnancy and am ready to start doing normal things again. I seem to be moving in the right direction. *fingers crossed*
