SSG continues to be completely wiped out, gets queasy, and sometimes barfs. Not every day but it still occurs. She's finding that a lot of sleep and making sure she gets lots of protein seems to make a big difference. This means bed at 8:00. Any later and she's a mess.
Bluebie also has a new safe and roomie set of wheels waiting for her/him. My lease on my Honda CR-V is up and after much number crunching, a few test drives, and discussion SSG and I decided to go a little bigger. We are picking up my new 2009 Toyota Highlander today after work. I've seen the amount of baby gear that people need! Plus add a dog and his gear and well you have a full car. We are anticipating lots of trips to NH and her parent's house with the baby. I'm not by any means saying a mid-size SUV is necessary and people do what they can but for us, this is the car that we were comfortable with. We wanted a super-safe, reliable car and well you can't go wrong with a Toyota or a Honda for that matter. I've seen what happens to small cars when an SUV hits them...it isn't often pretty. Don't hate me because I drive SUVs...I swear I don't hate the earth!
Lastly, the parent front, as in giving them the news. To some I'm sure it's crazy that we have yet to tell them. For me, I wanted to wait until the ultrasound which is a week from today. The plan is to have dinner with my parents next Friday night because they'll be down in MA. I think we will also tell SSG's parents next weekend as well. It will be the very end of week 8, almost week 9 so it seems like a good time. I'm pretty sure all will be excited but there is still a slight worry for me. Telling our parents that we were getting married certainly wasn't met with complete excitement and jubilation initially. They all eventually got on board but it was hard at first to hear that SSG's mom was "disappointed" at first or that my mom didn't quite have the same excitement as when my straight sister got married. Just goes with the territory I suppose but we're hoping for the best.
