This week my baby girl weighs as much as...

My baby now weighs as much as four navel oranges. (Length: over 16 inches, head to heel.)

I always like to post these on Monday, when I start a new week in my pregnancy. I didn't get around to doing it yesterday, I know, but I have a good excuse. Weak stomaches, beware.
I spent the entire morning puking. Yuck! I couldn't keep anything down, not even water or the anti-nausea medecine my doctor called in for me. So, off to the hospital we (Freddy and I) went. Three hours and two iv bags of fluids later, we were out of there.
Turns out I had a stomach virus. There is nothing you can do but let those things run thier course -unless of course you are pregnant and severely dehydrated, in which case an iv is required. When I wasn't puking, I felt fine. That is until I went home. I thought that getting hydrated would boost my energy, but quite the contrary. And all of that laying around just made my body ache. Everywhere!
And I would like to take just a minute to brag on my husband. He was so sweet, caring and attentive yesterday. I am a lucky, lucky girl!

Ew. Sorry. Nothing worse than a stomach virus when you're pregnant. That happened to me with Anna. It was awful. Glad you're feeling better.
