      Mo, I am so sorry you're having so many problems. I really hope you're feeling better and don't end up back in the hospital. You just got to your 2nd trimester...isn't that when the nauseau hopefully is supposed to end?

        o.k., ladies. I'm having issues!! I keep going numb under my boobs - like on my stomach, where my bra is now sitting because my boobs are so huge it is putting pressure on my bra and pressing it down... I guess the constant pressure on that area of my stomach is causing it to go numb?? What the heck. Do you think maybe I need not to wear an underwire? Maybe it's the wire making me numb. What do you think?

          After the gym last night (in my sports bra) I was sitting on the couch and it went numb again. So weird. I go to the doc next Tuesday. I'll ask him then. If I sit up straight and not put pressure on my stomach it doesn't happen.

            Mo - Does that mean you have to poke yourself with a needle everyday?

              That is so wierd! But ya know what? I think 2 or 3 times this past week, my right leg right above my knee went numb for a few minutes! I have an appt on the 2nd and I am going to ask my doc about it.

              Here is the update on my medical situation: I started to get very sick again so I called the doctor and they brought me in right away. They decided to set me up with in home IV therapy. So I will be hooked up to IV everyday but I don't have to go to the hospital. Luckily I work from home, but if I didn't they would have to put me out on disability. They are setting it up today, but the worse part is my cousin's bachelorette party is this Sat. and she is going to be so upset that I can't make it. I'm scared to tell her.

              Oh, Mo! I hope you start to feel better soon. Are you losing weight?! DO NOT worry about your cousin! Oh wait, or did her bach party already happen? I didn't check the date. Your health is way more important than her party!

The actual sticking part the nurses will do. It was still a bit overwhelming to try to learn all that stuff, luckily one of my best friends is a nurse if I need her. Unfortunately, I can't really go anywhere without the IV pole so I will be stuck here for at least a week. The Iv will be going 24 hours. I can clamp it off and wrap my arm in press and seal to take a shower but that's about it. We rented a vacation house down the shore from Aug. 9-23rd. I sure hope I am done with this by then. I will be draggin my IV pole to the beach!
              That sounds complicated, but at least you get to be home and sleep in your bed!!! I am gonna send you some good vibes and keep you in my prayers and thoughts!



              Well, we are back and I didn't like eating in Mexico while pregnant! And, for like 3 days I never felt Noah move. I think it is because I was so active while we were there? He has been moving all morning though!

                  That's ok Martha - he probably didn't like the food either
                  I know when I'm really active, I don't feel Luke all day. I sometimes have to stop and lay down and relax and he starts moving around again.

                  And where are your pics missy
